  4. Thanks Guys....should I also attempt to place a memory cooler or HDD cooler in this build as well?
  5. :ange: :ange: :ange: :ange: :sol: :hello:


    It was a double post....sorry!
  6. HDD cooler is really not necessary. For memory cooling, use any vengenance sticks from corsair.
  7. Check this build: It's better.
