Default OCZ active mem cooler.

I ordered the ocz memcooler on the weekend and should be here shortly. I made my decision when I was fiddling around in my case(powered down of course ) and accidentally touched voltage regs on video card and OUCH very hot . So I plan on installing the mem cooler cause my mem temp did drop with the extra fan I had installed. Then I will put that fan just behind cards so I get direct airflow over voltage regs and mem .

Good choice. I have one as you can see in the last post made in the Gallery section and it's doing it's job!
