How cooling my RAMs best way?

Read my former thread first to get info of my PC and all answers on that thread before answering this thread:

"RIG OK? Inactivate windows viritual memory? Big system watercooling dead?"

It came to my mind that my 24 GB (6x4GB) RAM will generate a massive heat. Will use Corsair H60 watercooling for the CPU and install the fan (a less noicer one than stock) in the top of my case and blow the heat upp uppwards, in that way Ill get the heat away from the RAMs so the case fans can cool the motherboard. But when thinking again I assume that just case fans, even when they are 3x230mm + 1x140mm at the back, will not cool down the RAMs enough/as cool I want them to be. When Im building a so noiseless PC as it can be (12-25 db, GPUs 18-40 db), what kind of extra cooling can I ad? The RAMs have both cheramic heatabsorbers and heatflenses and is made for lifetime warranty with OC, but is it possible to somehow bring watercooling around or on them? Dont want noisy fans, at least not over 25 db. What should I do? PS. Will NOT replace the H60 with a Noctua heatsink and doubble fans. Please give me some adwise!

Who needs 24 GB of ram! I would at max only get 8GB! That is like for a large business with that much ram and NOT for gaming.

Addison, he must have a reason for needing 24GB of ram. He might be video editing, or running virtual machines in which case he WILL need that ram.
I can't see your former post, so i'm assuming you have a reason for wanting 24GB of ram.

Anyway, are you overclocking the ram? If you aren't overclocking, you might be ok with standard heatsinks. If not, G.Skill, Corsair and Zalman all offer ram fans, you might want to check them out.
