Is the Airflow fan really needed with no overclocking


volgy

Recommended Posts

I have purchased the CMD8GX3M4A1600C8 kit to be used in an ASUS P7P55D motherboard. The Airflow fan (came with the kit) does not fit well on this mobo (RAM retaining clips on one side only of the modules) and the fan is very-very close to the PCIe video card. I am also concerned by the additional noise.

 

I wonder if the Airflow fan is needed if I do not plan to overclock the RAM modules (I will use them at 1333MHz with the default timings and voltage).

 

Thanks for any advice.

I would agree and for the most part if you have the fan I would suggest using it as it offers to do more for the system in general then just the memory. Heat is an issue with systems using much more power and the fan will cool the memory and MB components around the memory slots so if you have it it would only help the system remain cooler and help to last longer. But it is your system and you can use it how you like.
