Re: My Gaming build so far....
If you plan on overclockng, you shoiuld/have to get a new cooler. And if you are overclocking having that ram will help with that, as you will have essentially underclocked ram.
If you dont plan on overclocking, you dont need the cooler and slowing down the ram will save you some money.
As for a heatsink, I love my Noctua but they are pricey.
