My System Specs

Default Corsair Dominator Heat Question.

I'm Thinking of getting this Ram for my upcoming i7 Build, But, I don't really want to use the fan with them, I'm just wondering if the fans are really necessary.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair XMS3 Dominator TR3X6G1866C9DF 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1866 CL 9-9-9-24 Core i7 Memory Kit - TR3X6G1866C9DF In Canada.

Thanks in advance,

GT_Lulz/ReMix3d.

I really don't think its really needed if you have enough airflow in your case.

As long as you've got airflow over the memory, you'll be fine.

My 1600 Mhz Doms barely warm up after about an hour of 3D Gaming (touch test).....don't think the fan is necessary at all...
