Apathetic

  • Pros: High RPM. Not noisy.
  • Cons: Honestly, this is a waste of money, and there is no LED for blinging out a case. I have one and I'm keeping it just because I don't want to do an RMA. Eh, it's only about $30. I guess it helps with overall case airflow.

bad fans x2

Robert H., Newegg
5 November 2012
  • Pros: They do keep the Ram cool. The mount is poor but does work.
  • Cons: The fans worked for about 4 months and then started to make noise at startup. After about 5 minutes that stopped. I have 2 of these coolers so I put my extra one on and the same thing started in about 4 months. I RAMed them to Corsair and they replaced them about 4 months ago. The first new one i...

Barely hangs on

Avo S., Newegg
23 July 2012
  • Summary: If you have a big heatsink or lots of cables/tubes that might push this around, don't get one.
  • Pros: It supposedly keeps my Corsair Dominator cooler. I have 6 sticks, so I thought it was a good idea to get this.
  • Cons: First, it's a little noisy, this was too be expected. I forced the fan to run at half speed because when it runs at max it has this higher pitched noise that can be annoying. Mostly my issue with this is the way it hooks onto the RAM slots. I can't see a better way for them to have done this, but...

  • Summary: I didn't really know why I needed this, most likely because I'm a techno freak and any type of cooling on my computer would be good right? Well, I guess it cools. I mean, I never really think RAM needs fans if you have proper cooling.

User Review

  • Summary: The bracket design is good, but I'm not the only one to run into this problem, so buyers expect to replace the fans, otherwise, don't buy.
  • Pros: Fits snugly over ram slots, has a single three pin connector for both fans, looks good.
  • Cons: One of the fans doesn't work. Tried it on a motherboard header, a stepless potentiometer type fan controller, and on a straight hookup to my PSU, just to eliminate the possibility of it being a current/voltage deficiency. The fan works if you open up your case, and manually start it spinning with...

Low quality fans?

David W., Newegg
18 November 2011
  • Pros: Worked for a bit, kept the memory cool.
  • Cons: Started hearing that all familiar sound of a fan going and after popping my case open, one the fans on this cooler was spinning half speed and making all kinds of noise. Just bought and installed in July.

Wow it's loud

Christopher B., Newegg

  • Summary: I have owned this fan for a little over a month now. It has begun to exude an extremely high pitch grinding noise now and the fans are barely spinning. I usually buy corsair for the quality and reputation that came with the name. So far 1 fautly power supply and now this.
  • Pros: Extremely well at cooling when it works
  • Cons: Fan quality is horrible.

DO NOT BUY....the ship has sunk

Anonymous, Newegg
25 January 2011
  • Summary: although Corsairs customer service is good, i dont want to deal with the hassle of shipping this fan back to corsair, why cant they just send me one that works heh oh well i might try Kingston's memory cooler
  • Pros: good mounting system, it stays secure and all you dont have to worry about it falling off, and it does cool down your RAM pretty good,........................DONT BE FOOLED BY THE FIRST 3 MONTHS OF THIS JUNK WORKING, SEE CONS
  • Cons: it worked for 3 months then made alot of noise, I RMAed it, n the replacement worked for 3 months again, now its making really bad noise again, Corsair claims to replace the fan i think all they did is grease the fan and send it back to me, so i think by now a refund or some sort of store credit ...
