I have almost completed my system upgrade, but before I swap over to water cooling I need to upgrade my RAM. Right now I am running 16gb of Corsair XMS3 that was left over from the X48 system I just replaced. Its working fine but like anyone else in these forums I just want it to match the rest of the components. I was looking at the Corsair Dominator Platinum but there is no way to water cool that without taking off all the lights. So why pay extra for the lighting if its just going to come off anyways. Right now I'm looking at using this water block. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_294&products_id=31078

I would like to find something of good reputable quality. I'm open to speeds of 1600-2800 just to keep options open. It would be nice to keep it in the ROG color scheme. And again be able to use the above water block on it.

Thanks for reading!

Watercooling the RAM won't make any difference... unless you're going very high OC'ing... (where your CPU would need LN2)

But if you still want to do it, look at Corsair Dominator GT series... the top of their heatsink is removable and EK has matching waterblock(s)... With your system the GSkill TridentX series memories are going very well, you can do an easy 2600-2800MHz on them... - however, I'm not sure if you can get waterblock for them... but as I said, they don't really need it... I did very close to 3000MHz with just a fan blowing on them...

I'm definately not doing it for a performance increase. I just want the look of a complete loop. And since I'm planning to upgrade the RAM anyway this seemed to be a good point to do so.

Full Water Loops do look awesome, I'd go for it just for that reason alone.

Look, what I found for the TridentX water blocks... I think, keep checking back to that thread and you may get what you want... http://www.overclock.net/t/1297989/trident-x-waterblock

Thanks for this. I have heard good things about that RAM. I'll keep an eye on it.

No problem, mate! I did used that TridentX memories with 3770k (check the link in my signature) and I can tell you that they're the best on that platform! Haven't tried the Platinums yet though...
