Cool IT Systems Ram FanFormer staff writer - April 16, 2007
With the ever increasing speeds and voltages that today’s memory modules are achieving and their ability to overclock, even with stock heatsinks, it is becoming very hard to keep their temperatures low enough to run stable if you choose to overclock your system. It seems that the days of passive cooling are behind us and if we want to be able to utilize the memory to its full potential, we will need an active cooling solution in order to keep the module temperatures down. One solution is a RAM cooler, which is usually an all-in one unit that clips over the modules then cools them with the a high RPM/ CFM fan that is attached to the cooler. Cool IT Systems manufactures such a unit and they have named it the RAM Fan.
Cool IT systems are a Canadian corporation based in Calgary, Alberta Canada and have been providing affordable comprehensive cooling solutions for end-users for many years.
Although the packaging of the RAM Fan is very simple, it gets its point across by having the main focus of the packaging on the product itself. The back of the box has the RAM Fan’s specifications.
The RAM Fan is composed of Aluminum and it houses a 60mm LED fan, which has a dBA of 31.6 and is capable of blowing 17.74 CFM @ 4600 RPM. The unit is very light-weight and has a dimple on each end for extra stability. I’d be very careful with these - RAM is composed of PCB and could be damaged by them.
