It astonishes me seeing people buying the top CPUs and running it on air. But I guess, different folks, different strokes.

The best air coolers can easily keep up with most of the CLC garbage so there is nothing wrong with using an air cooler if we compare to those
but if you are talking about real liquid cooling like custom loops then yes thats much better

Thanks for the concern over cooling, but I am sticking with air. I am not going to be overclocking the CPU, so air will be sufficient. Any thoughts on a RAM kit?

I saw an article about G skill had just released AMD Zen 2 specific kits but i would look at the 3200-3600 Mhz range with a CL14-16 timings
Edit: are you looking for a 16 GB or a 32 GB kit?

Looking for 16GB, but I need the kit ASAP. I start another semester mid August and want to build/reformat before that.
