My System Specs


I have seen people stick low profile RAM sinks and get away with it just fine with good air ventilation. Just stick them on without screwing in anything with the adhesive thermal tape. It is true it is one of the most useless things to water cool and usually only water cooling addicts do it just because they can.

You could always just use thermal tape to hold it down.
