do i need memory fans?


Recommended Posts

hi i have just bought 12bg of corsair dominator and got the fans to go with them, they are quite noisey so do i have to use them? will the memory get damaged?




"No" and "no". I had that same issue with the fans in my last build and I just tossed them out. No problem. If you really need assurance, just run the PC with your hand on the DIMMs under load and see just how hot (or not) they get. Lastly, check Corsair's current product line up. You'll see not all similarly rated DIMMs (even within the Dominator line up) come with fans. If I'm not mistaken, none of the quad-channel kits do.
