TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF: Fan Issue

Recommended Posts



I had bought TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF almost a year ago and they are great!


I recently am having a problem though. The fan, individually known as the CMXAF1 (although I got mine as part of the package), has become annoying loud and it is starting to make a very sharp, whiny noise.


I have been snooping around on the forum about this and it seems that it is also the case for not only myself. I will RMA like the others, but I have 2 questions:


1) The rams work great and I would rather leave them in the system. Can i Just RMA the fan by itself?


2) I'm running the ram at 668 with timings of 4-4-4-12. The voltage is currently set at 2.0v and it has been running great. If I don't have the fan, is it still ok or will I run into trouble based on these numbers?


Thank you in advance for your help,

- Dishu
