At only 450 you shouldn't even be pushing more than I'd say 1.9v through that ram.

So I doubt its really warm enough to warrant a cooler on it.

Look into a bit better case cooling.

I'd already concider the way of getting a new case probably a HAF 932 but I don't want to spend this extra money to cool my memory down. Ram is 2.1 but i will try to low it see aht this is doing.

Antec SPot cool, or Get the Corsair/OCZ/GSkill Ram Cooling Module. Shouldn't run you more than $25 for any of those options, and it will do a good job.

I dunno, those coolers don't really produce enough CFM to really cool them down. You could rig up a spare 120mm fan with some zip ties and then you'd have some real airflow there...

I'm cheap lol...

The OCZ XTC ram coolers work pretty damn well and look sweet, and I know theres at least a few of them for sale in the BST threads.
