Unreliable garbage 4/27/2019 1:56:44 AM

Pros: - At least one of the fans work
- Newegg leaves product pages up so I can figure out that this uses 40x40 fans. Now I can replace them with ones that aren't garbage.
- It fits snugly on my RAM.

Cons: - The fan closest to the cable's bearings went out after about 6 months. It's possible to get the fan to stall with a piece of paper or barely touching it with a finger.
- The middle fan is working, but making a pretty bad racket. It's probably not long for this world.
- Probably not under warranty anymore since I bought this in 2009.

Overall Review: This thing has always performed poorly, but as I've recently pulled my X58 rig out of storage, I've been reminded that this thing is terrible and needs to be repaired.

Noisy but easy fix 1/23/2015 10:10:38 PM

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

Overall Review: 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.

Gets loud over time 8/16/2014 8:52:34 AM

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.

Overall Review: Tried to RMA, but the process is much more painful than it should be. Not happy.

RAM Fan for a Dell 470 3/17/2014 6:54:14 AM

Pros: Easy to assemble, unit snaps snuggly on the RAM clips, it just works, no noticeable sound increase (but my PC runs pretty load as it is) ...

Cons: None for me, besides having to trim the power connector, which is not the fan's fault .

But I can see issues, if you have tight clearances over/around your memory. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if you accidentally unclip your RAM trying to get this in place.

Overall Review: I needed a memory fan to fully utilize all of the memory sockets on a old Dell Precision 470 that I liberated out of a dumpster and got running again : p
I bought this without realizing that the PC had a proprietary connector for the fan :( but with a little patience, care and an Exacto knife, I was able make the necessary adjustments and get the fan running!

Pros: It keeps my my some what colder.

Cons: - 2 out of the 3 fans stopped working with-in the first 2 months.
- but before they went out, they were loud and always with a buzzing sound that even in my padded tower, was pretty audible.

Overall Review: I wish I would've gone with another brand.

Pretty good 1/10/2014 7:45:42 AM

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

Overall Review: 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.
