Noisy but easy fix

Marta, Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: The noise can be fixed easily, just use wd-40, you can put it before install it and basically will run smooth. I just really wish it came with different color stickers for the top, at least, one green, blue and red which are the most used.
  • Pros: Solid and really cool the rams, and looks great
  • Cons: Very thick, not so easy to install, I have a custom water cooler and was a bit of a pain to install, but that don't deserve to take an egg, and yes it's noisy, the first day worked great, but the next day I noticed a noise so I checked every fan and one of them was making all the noise

Pretty good

Paul H., Newegg

  • Summary: I would recommend a ram cooler like this to any PC gamer, it does a good job of keeping it cool and looks great. I just wouldn't recommend this one.
  • Pros: -Does a good job of cooling the ram -Looks nice
  • Cons: -Fans are too noisy -one of the fans recently started making a wining noise, I am going to try the newer CMXAF2 version

Fine, Mostly

Eric T., Newegg
21 January 2013
  • Summary: Don't be too put off by the blue on the top. It is just a sticker that peels away pretty nicely without destroying it or leaving much residue, if you go about it slowly. Well finished and black underneath that, plus that is where you can access the fan mounting bolts.
  • Pros: Dedicated memory cooling, which is a plus if not a must if you are water cooling your CPU and not otherwise getting any good airflow near the memory. Fit well with an H100i cooler on a Sabertooth AM3+ board. Reasonably well built, if the fans hold up. Not too heavy at all
  • Cons: The attachment method will let the cooler wander about side-to-side fairly easily. I will likely end up banding the unit with a long, thin cable tie around the outside where the notches engage the keepers, which should hold everything in place. May have to stack some washers in between the mounti...

Got em for free, but couldn't use em

Louis A., Newegg
13 August 2012
  • Summary: Unless you plan to overclock your memory, you probably won't need something like this. Memory tends to run pretty cool.
  • Pros: When I was testing various builds with my new comp. I gave these a run on my 4x 8GB Corsair Vengeance. They worked as expected but were a bit bulky to utilize in the very limited space you have on the motherboard.
  • Cons: Too bulky to utilize at the same time as the corsair's H100 water cooling system. If you bought the water cooling system, you *probably* won't be able to use these.

Great fans

Chase J., Newegg
31 May 2012
  • Summary: their kind of hard to put on but they look great after everything is in place and running!
  • Pros: They look great! they've lowered the running temp by 2-4 degrees celcius.
  • Cons: the only thing I can think of is that if you have an H80 watercooling setup for you're cpu... the tubing seems to get in the way of the fans... which is odd seeing as how their both made by the same company...

Fitment Warning

JEFFH, TigerDirect.com
25 March 2012
  • Summary: I tried to install this on an ASUS Crosshair V motherboard, but am unable to do so because the memory goes in upside down compared to other boards. I have been made to understand this happens on some AMD and X79 based motherboards.

Great but not maintenance free

Carl M., Newegg
21 December 2011
  • Pros: Keeps you from burning up RAM, keeps memory very cool, easy to install, decently quiet, affordable. Plenty of cooling headroom.
  • Cons: You may want a controller to slow down high speed fans. They have a lot of cooling headroom available, and if it's overkill, you could easily bring the noise down with a fan controller, for good cooling, and silence together in one elegant package. Requires maintenance. These fans are lubed strai...

Interferance.

Bilal R., Newegg
2 June 2011
  • Pros: It does what it should, and works well.
  • Cons: Since I have a rather large COOLERMASTER heat sink sometimes it presses against it and makes a tiny buzzing noise; but I've only had to actually go in and stop it once. Other than that no complaints.
