Categories > Memory & Chipset Cooling > SILENX > SilenX IXN-40C Copper Chipset Cooler

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Cools, tricky to pin down
Pros: Significantly cooled the northbridge, which was running suspiciously hot with the OG fan from dell.
Cons: The spring-loaded clip took more than a little finessing to square up. The blue light on the fan is unnecessary.
Other Thoughts: The XPS I installed this in is going on 7 years now, so not sure how much longer this equipment will be needed.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Good Product
Pros: Fan is small but produces enough air flow to cool my Chip-set down to normal temp.
Cons: I did not use the coil due to terrible design.

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 after 1 year of use: LOUD, 4 PIN MOLEX, dust accelerator
Pros: still going strong, excellent cooler for the price,
lightweight and very flexible installation (beware of metal legs)
best bang for the buck
Cons: I am amazed after customer support read multiple reviews saying ram cooler is loud, not only they didn't revise the 4 pin 12v power connector, or the fans speed, they are denying this fact all together
I modified the connector into 3 pin and hooked it to one of the asus formula V motherboard controlling it's speed through voltage control keeping it bellow 1400 RPM: it was the loudest element in my tower until then.
using it as a north bridge cooler it is very efficient.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Gets loud over time
Pros: Works for awhile, long warranty.
Cons: One of the fans started to get loud, then died so it got quieter. Now another is going.
Other Thoughts: Tried to RMA, but the process is much more painful than it should be. Not happy.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Not Bad
Pros: 1 easy to install

2 low power usage

3 fans are quiet
Cons: need to check clearance in your unit, most full or mini motherboards do not provide enough clearance to install with the 20/24 pin power strip

the clips are just pushed on instead of being installed with screws, not a big deal but also not the most reliable
Manufacturer Response:.
Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory fan was easy to install and works well in your system. The dual 3,500 RPM fans will keep your memory slots area nice and cool without producing much noise in a case already full of fans and spinning components. So whether you're overclocking or using the system for heavy duty long sessions, this cooler can prolong the lifespan of your computer by preventing any possible heat damage. You are correct in that it may not be able to fit in a small case, so make sure there is ~65mm of height and width space above the memory slots area for clearance. Fans also need air flow, so generally fans and coolers are not designed for small cases with minimal room. For any further question or concern, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

Categories > Memory & Chipset Cooling > Corsair > CORSAIR CMDLBUK02B Light Bar Upgrade Kit for Dominator Platinum

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great toys
Pros: Lights up! Use a Sharpie people. Ure use blue or white. Either way they are great
Cons: $$$ . Needs to be a bit cheaper. I bet it costs Corsair 2 bucks to make these...or less.
Other Thoughts: For those who want a different color, just use the clear ones and get a flat tipped Sharpie in the color of your choice and apply it it single, long coats until you get the desired affect. Myself, I turned mine green and am about to use the same method for my sons and turn his purple. Shrpies work wonders...

Categories > Memory & Chipset Cooling > G.SKILL > G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Fragile
Pros: -Effective cooler
-White LED is great
Cons: -much louder than any fan in my PC, at max speed.
-wires are fragile, so careful
Other Thoughts: I was initially dissatisfied with the fans, but they did cool my Trident Xs rather well. However after trying to take out the connectors, one of the wires snapped. I admit it was partly my fault for not grabbing the connector by the head, but this snapped really easy.
Not sure if warranty covers this, but regardless they are nice fans, only if controlled.

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you like the memory fan and it is effective in your system. The dual 3,500 RPM fans definitely keep the memory slots area nice and cool even during high load or continuous stress. Based on our testing, temperature can be lowered by over 10 degrees F, which is a great deal when prolonging the lifespan or protecting the hardware from over heating. With regards to noise, the fans should be near silent, so it is strange that you say they are louder than all other fans. If you would like, contact the G.Skill RMA dept. about this and they should be able to exchange it with a good working replacement. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you

Categories > Memory & Chipset Cooling > G.SKILL > G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Aesthetically pleasing
Pros: Helps make ugly RAM keep cool and look better. no need to match RAM color to your gaming PC with this fan, It simply covers the RAM slots, pushing air towards the memory and shining LED lights for added Aesthetics
Cons: can be the loudest thing in your computer, I would advise running the fan at 5-7v instead of the stock 12v, there is only a 4 pin molex connector so this will have to be done with a fan controller or a simple wire mod will solve this.
Other Thoughts: overall a great price for what it does, if you're looking for a cheap way to make your RAM look nice, this is it

Dear Customer

Glad to hear you think the memory fan is aesthetically pleasing. Especially with a nice computer case with a transparent Window, this memory fan can look very cool. But not only does it look cool, the dual 3,500 RPM fans will keep the memory slots area cool as well. It is strange you say the fans can be the loudest thing in the computer. They should be near silent, so if that is not the case, please feel free to send them in for RMA exchange to see if a replacement is better. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.
