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. The cables that come off the Dominator RAM modules are not long enough to put it in right side up, and putting the unit on upside down interferes with the ability to install a graphics card in the top (primary) slot.
Summary: Only complaint is from personal install. Wires that connect to modules are just a little longer than needed, and plugin is slightly tricky. Noobs should steer away. Also there is not a designation for the plugs on the unit. Would've been nice to have wires numbered. Only works with certain Corsaire RAM modules.
Excerpt: 5670RPM was the top speed of this memory cooling, eventhou is say 4500RPM but when plug into the 3 pin power fan on the motherboard of a Gigabyte GA P55 USB3 fan and assist cool when overclocking the memory. Doesn't lock excellent enough but sufficient to stay in place. Does sound and very loud. Tighten the screws for the legs ahead of installing and from there you should manual open leg supports in order for you to have a very tight hold.
Excerpt: The fans operate fantastic. The unit could slip off the RAM. All the manufacturer requirements to do to repair this is provide an "L" shaped feature on the side of the clip (it could be stamped in the metal at the very same time it is created) that bumps into the locking levers sideways as a result preventing sliding. It need to be on both clips, but can be on the same side (so each clips nevertheless match) and the assembly would not slip off.
Excerpt: Looks excellent, good low temps Not for men and women who plan on moving their computers around for lans. Cooler just makes use of pressure to hold itself on so it can slip off the sides but I'd believe it would take a lot of force to do that.
Excerpt: I installed this over 8GB of Corsair RAM in my personally-constructed program. It is effectively-built / hardy and does the job effectively cooling the RAM. The dern point has a tricky time staying clipped on. You have to unscrew and screw back in the adjustment screws on major just to get it pretty snug as soon as seated in the appropriate spot . . . then . . . woops - it slid off again - to begin all more than.
Excerpt: My incredibly hot RAM is now lukewarm beneath a full load. Looks great, stays attached to my RAM slots nicely. 2 of 3 fans have exhibited noise problems of some sort. Top rated fan has a continuous whir, middle fan rattles when beginning but goes away soon after a couple minutes. This has slightly diminished in the past week or so, but it nevertheless has some noise. Doesn't seem like it must be like this considering that the bottom fan is basically silent.
Excerpt: Keeps memory true cool, also looks really cool. And if you don't use this, you WILL want to use anything in its location if you run at 1600 MHz. I've had mine two months, and nonetheless silent. It's the loudest component but so what, it's nonetheless a barely-audible "whoosh". Integrates with your domninator memory certainly seamlessly.
Excerpt: Solid, heavy craftsmanship; simple design. On my board (EVGA x58, with 12 GB OCZ RAM installed in 6 sticks) the CMXAF1 did not grip firmly in spite of adjustments with the thumbscrews. I'm sure it won't fall off, but we all hope for that snug (but not crushing) fit for elements. And for other stuff. :-). I don't assume having Corsair RAM would make any difference, contemplating where the fan bracket makes make contact with (below the RAM clips).
