Excerpt: Fans do a terrific job of cooling memory. Performance is not questionable for me. I have owned 2 in the past both failed on me within two months of installing. *HOWEVER* (read other thoughts) I RMA'd each terrible fans and corsair sent me 2 new ones. I have installed the initially of the 2 and have been running it for numerous months now with no noise, no difficulties.
Excerpt: This is the unit I began to get 'till I realized Corsair has a newer model CMXAF2 also stocked by Newegg that uses two, somewhat bigger fans and it's made explicitly to cool six RAM strips. The CMXAF2 must be both much more effective and quieter. This unit has been criticized by some as a bit noisy. But the largest drawback is that it's just not Corsair's latest and greatest.
Excerpt: Quite fairly....till it's not.Appears kinda cool. First one began creating noise right after about 2 weeks. RMA'd it.Existing fan started to get noisy after about two weeks.Could bump the side of the personal computer case and noise would cease. This stopped functioning immediately after about a year. Removed fan. On bottom side there is a black sticker over the center of every single fan. Peeled sticker back, removed smaller rubber stopper, added a drop of 3 in 1 oil.
Excerpt: The value is acceptable... the temperature drops it offered had been sufficient to permit correct overvoltaging of the RAM. Noise noise noise. Even though it felt like it was robust, and the connections seemed to work nicely (the clips did look a bit awkward at very first)... the noise is just horrendus. An individual else pointed out that immediately after a whilst it sounds like there's a chainsaw in your case... spot on. I now own a two-stroke powered memory cooler.
Excerpt: Well, it undoubtedly cools the ram (when it is really on the ram). A single day at Corsair, someone shouted, "Hey guys! What if we had a cool hunting bank of fans that could mount on top of our DIMMS and whisk away the heat from the modules?" Everybody scratched their chins and smiled approvingly. One particular lone voice arose through the din of praise: "Hey, there's truly not a spot to mount a bank of fans over the dimms.
Excerpt: Great airflow... Did NOT come with the retention clips to hold the dag on fans to my memory bank!!!!I purchased two sets of the Corsair Dominator DDR3 memory kits that included the fans Ɠ memory sticks per kit).Was going to use the second fan for yet another computer. However, both didn't come with the retention clips.
Excerpt: Effortless to attach, isn't as flimsy as some persons have talked about. The fans are super low cost pieces of junk that make noise about a week immediately after installing. Sound like chainsaws in my case. My ram gets also hot to touch and I just wanted anything straightforward to cool em. These issues are a wonderful concept but the fans are also affordable high quality and not replaceable.
Excerpt: The fan was quick to assemble and install. The fan only clips on to your memory clips. Seems to hold the fan relatively securely in place as long as you're not moving the case about a lot. RAM is noticeably cooler to the touch. Fantastic cost. Following the first couple days of use, 1 of the fans started producing a high pitch whine like a bearing was going out. The smaller fans spin at 5k rpm which may well be a bit much for them.
Excerpt: It was a snap to place on, excellent wow aspect if you have an open case on a stand. It pushes air and I can now overclock my ram like it was intended. Not extremely substantial although...on Corsair XMS2 2x2gb ram modules, from 800mhz to 850mhz. Its loose. You really should bend the clips slightly and make certain you dont work harden the metal whilst undertaking so...or you can secure it with a rubber band about the modules.
Excerpt: Not challenging to fit, appears to be decently built. My memory is WAY cooler - from also hot to touch to lukewarm. The impact is beyond noticeable. I watercool so there was little airflow from a CPU fan. They whine. I hear a high pitched whining sound that can be stopped by placing my finger on the fan to stop it. I can from time to time hear it two rooms away from my workplace with the doors open. Usually the exact same fan but not always.
