Would the thttp://tinyurl.com/4xnahjq Corsair H80 fit well in the back or on the side (Side panel) the http://tinyurl.com/3x8qo6w Antec DF-85? Thanks for anything. I could even go for an http://tinyurl.com/3h4twt8 H60.

The main reason I'm going for this simplistic water cooler is because I don't feel like putting one together. 1. Too much money, for me, to put a whole water cooling rig together (GPU's and CPU) and 2. I hear you don't have to change this preassembled water cooler, well all preassembled water coolers.
I say water coolers instead of liquid cooling, I don't know why. Just hasn't caught onto me. I could easily go with a normal fan and heatsink cooler if anyone recommends one.

Why don't you just invest in a NH-D14? Or one of those Phantek PH-TC14CS? They're around the same price as the H80 and will perform much better.

+1^ you wont also have the fear of leaking or pump noise or that annoying (to me) air flowing through the radiator noise :lol:

Oh goodness, I've tried out an H100 in the past, seems like the pump starts clicking if your PSU's 12v rail provides anything slightly over 12v... :lol:  (12.28v on my PSU)

Thanks guys. :D  I'll definently try to invest in one of this in one of the upcoming seasons. My current CPU cooler is a little $20 Zalman cooler... Totally sucks. It's louder than my standard 7.2k RPM HDD and my dual GPU's. Even when the gpu's run up to about 50%. They're 6950's so they are pretty loud so that says something.

How do you guys think the Noctua NH-D14 does with Ram? It's a pretty bulky CPU Cooler and I'm worried my ram won't fit. I can send you guys the link of my ram and mobo if required.

What model is your RAM? As much as I know, as long as you aren't using something ridiculous such as those Corsair Vengeance modules, you won't have too much of a hassle installing the said CPU coolers.

I can see that I obviously won't have a problem fitting ram in underneath the Phanteks PH-TC14CS Cooler so. Just wanted to make it clear on how well the Noctua would fit.

Anyone know the exact purpose of the extending fins on those ripjaws/vengeance?

Those ram modules seem fine, no heatsink fins extending upwards which I view kind of pointless :lol:

Maybe for extra heat disapation. They could extend up and run the head through there then any other fans or something that cools could blow off a little heat.

Supposedly they're supposed to cool the RAM modules better, but I think they're more there for looks more than anything :lol: 

As long as you have decent airflow in your case, I just can't see your RAM modules burning up (as long as you have SOME sort of heatsink on them). I can understand the Dominator Platinums, however, since those can go up to some insane frequencies (2800Mhz...)
