Excerpt: I bought this three fan version of the Corsair memory cooler to replace the two fan version that had started to screech on starting the PC. At first the noise stopped after boot up but progressively became longer. Hence the purchase of the replacement unit. After a couple of weeks this unit started to do the same thing. In order to stop the squealing I have tried using both silicon spray lubricant and WD-40.
Excerpt: This item seemed like a very good idea and the memory stays cooler indeed. This assembly includes really poor excellent fans. They are sleeve bearing fans turn into incredibly loud immediately after only a handful of weeks of usage. The mounting method is ok, though a small wiggly.In my opinion, you're much better off with some property concoction to maintain your memory cool.All round high quality: Trash.
Excerpt: Simple to setup. Compact design. two pieces of spot holder would have been superior with a high temp silicon wrapped around where it grips the memory locking mechanism for better fit. Fan components employed are inferior to the projected Corsair brand has constructed himself into. With a H50 and combined 2 sets of 6x2gb (TR3X6G1600C8D) setup, my airflow is compromised about the CPU/memory location on my X58 SLI board.
Excerpt: These babies let you know they are operating when they make a distinctive sequel. When the noise stops, so do the fans wait a month or 2 to post your love for these, that is generally when the trouble begins.I can not think these are nevertheless on the industry Manufacturer Response:Please note that the coolers are covered by warranty.
Excerpt: Keeps papers from blowing off desk.When installed the shrill of the cheap fans let you know it is working. When the shrill stops, so do the fans and due to the fact it cover the memory modules, ventilation is restricted and memory gets hot.Corsair would not send a replacement unless I shipped it to them.
Excerpt: Does a great job cooling when the fans spin right. Uncomplicated to set up These small fans stopped functioning proper only a few weeks right after installing the unit. At initial they started making this awefull bearing grinding variety noise for just a couple of seconds when beginning up. Now it's undertaking this for several minutes on beginning.It's really hard to think I have a dozen 120mm fans and these tiny fans are WAY louder than the complete lot.
Excerpt: None at all truly. Fans started producing noises following a couple weeks. No true need to have for fans on your ram. Most heat spreaders perform just fine with sufficient airflow. Manufacturer Response:The fan is covered by warranty if you'd like to replace it.
Excerpt: Look TO THE Ideal AT THE "BUZZ Reviews" 2007?I WILL Purchase THESE UP LIKE CRAZY FOR THE FRAME WHEN THE Price tag COMES DOWN Beneath five DOLLARS WITH No cost SHIPPING WHAT Occurred IN 2010 TO MAKE CORSAIR PUMP OUT LOW High quality?I Bought THESE IN 2007 AND THE FANS THEMSELVES Had been Superior Quality AND Nonetheless Operating Currently.With out Seriously Searching I Purchased SOME Additional OF THESE FOR NEW BUILDS.
Excerpt: Straightforward to install as with all the same designs Method worked great in all strategies.... till the NOISE began. Cheapest junk fans our of China... Keep away from this junk. Had the Memory and fans RMA with the firm 3X and each and every time, ahead of the memory could test out for over two weeks.. the fans failed. If Corsair would only have ordered far better fans, this could have been a good product.
