Default HOTT!! heating probs

got some XMS RAM that gets way to warm for my liking. they have some good sinks on. cant get anything thats to big otherwise they wont fit correctly in the slots (they are so close together) any fans that can be placed on the? and I got a gigabyte K8N SLi-Pro and there is no fan for the chipset which gets a little warm. been searching for asink/fan combo for it. couldnt find any. anyone have an idea

download a program called everest (google it and u will find it) then see if that tells u, its unlikely that your ram is very hot because ram never gets that hot anyways
