    Ever been in a sauna or whatever? It's hotter near the top, and a cooler on the bottom. It's the same with cases and everything else when it comes to heat.

    So two high rps fans is massive cooling for you? As in just about any case out of the box. Of course open coolers don't work well if you have no fans. But no one runs a machine with no fans.

    Yeah, because that 'massive' airflow is so hard to accomplish. So you are saying that unless you have like 300e case full of fans, you can not use open coolers? They explode or something? Or if you...

    DDR4 is much more expensive than DDR3, and I don't think it's really even supported by Haswell boards.
