Which Ramsinks to get for Corsair PC8500?

How do I include cooling the ram in the loop?

Is it important to get the right ones?

Are you talking about water cooled ram sinks?

In which case dont bother, the Dominators spikey sinks & fans are plenty.

Ram sinks refer to these used for cooling ram on gfx cards etc.

I think you want to cool your system ram and would be wanting this or this

You can buy RAM waterblocks but they don't offer much benefit over passive/active air cooling. They are very restrictive and will kill your flow rate, so much so that I don't know anyone who uses them!

If passive cooling isn't good enough for you then consider putting a 120mm fan over the RAM and set it at low rpm. I know those 3 x 40mm fans at high rpm would drive me nuts!
