Additional Comments: One of my questions is whether of not I need a sound card and if it even makes a difference anymore. I'll use my Logitech G35 headset 99% of the time, though I was thinking about getting some speakers at some point. I have no idea what good gaming RAM is like and I want to know what good cooling is for the RAM and CPU because I do plan on OCing.
Exactly right and exactly why Frostytech is a complete joke. They use the same thermal paste for every cooler they test, instead of the paste that comes with the cooler. Which negates any advantage a company might have. I prefer TX3 but if you buy a good cooler, it usually comes with decent, tested stuff on it. They are not going to put a paste on their product that sucks.
If Frostytech had MY companies cooler on their site, I would sue them for misrepresentation.
