Default How to make you own Memory Cooler (RAM)

I found this article while surfing and thought I would share it with you guys, the original creator deserves a lot of credit imho:

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MEMORY COOLER(56K UN-FRIENDLY) - Overclockers Australia Forums

It may look a little "ghetto" for some but the build looks promising, cheap and you can determine noise and cfm by the quality of fans used in the build.

That's kinda cool but if I was that guy, I would have went with blue since the rest of the lighting in the case was blue but that's just my $0.02.

Someone should tell him that it is not 56k unfriendly, it is just 56k neutral.
See?

Well, all ISPs in Canada fully suck - but that aside, in the more remote areas dialup must often be resorted to because a sat connection completely sucks and is a terrible experience.
We are getting off topic though.

Cheap, likely efficient, and better looking than some.
