Default Kool Solutions Memory Cooling Fan

Overclocking memory has come a long way, in the old days pushing more then 2.9v through your DDR sticks was considered insane; now certain manufactures are making products geared especially for high voltage (3.6+v). With the increased power comes increased heat and active memory cooling is becoming a necessity. Let´s see if this “memory cooling” Solution from Kool is any good....

I would prefer a ghetto ducttape and 120mm solution that is quiet over that.


Right now, I got the XP-120 which overlaps all my memory.

I'd like you see duct-tape 120mm fan into a barebone; quality 120mm fan which has good noise/performance ratio will cost you $5.

Depends on memory stick location, Thermalright XP120 won't cover memory cooling.

Mind showing a picture of yours.

it's a nice thing, but i think the market is rather small for it, even with overclockers, their modules sometimes only run a few degrees hotter when oc'ed

You are correct with the market being small

Its not that hard to make it by yourself with some plexy, but it will probably cost you more than buying it.

Ok I have read the article.

Performance: Good.
Price: Good
Noise: not so good
Design:...?

2 Observations:

1) Lazyman why isn't the board shaped outwards from the point of the adhesive side?

To explain. Where the adhesive side is, the plexy (or plastic, whatever) could have been shaped outwards away from the RAM sticks, making a curve and then coming back.

Wouldn't that position the fans better above the RAM, thus increasing performance?

2) Why the (slightly) noisy fans? Aren't there any quiter fans in the market (even if more expensive) like Papst, Panaflo etc.?

1) CVMF is designed also for use with CV

2) Noise depends on the last time one went for a hearing test, and

at 50cm they were no longer audible in the test room (room noise ~36dBA).
