Is Air Flow Fan Really Necessary?


G50EED

Recommended Posts

I am running a set of CMT6GX3M3A1866C9 at 1871MHz. The air flow fan has gotten annoyingly loud for about the first five minutes after a cold start up (then it settles down and is inaudible). Before I inquire about an RMA for the fan I would like to know the truth about whether the fan is even really necessary. To be honest, I installed it only for looks and if it isn't really needed I can happily live without it. After a few hours of use the DIMMs are certainly very warm but not to the point of being unable to touch them.

Please use the link on the left and request an RMA for CMXAF2 GT and we can replace just the fan, but you should be able to run the system with our the fan but it will help cool the memory and other components around the memory so let get it replaced.
