yeah, i would of never worked in my computer while it was running. Actually, i never did anything while comp was ruunning but as i said, i was really worried about that OCZ doing that awful sound and producing so much vibrations on my brand new set of ram... So, i didn't thought and went ahead and tried to remove the thing... What i should of done is to just unplug the cooler, then stop the comp and remove the cooler... Oh well, Yeah, i suppose i learned that the hard way... Never more!

As is aid, I made a new face to the fan that died on that RAM cooler and then trashed the cooler into my drawer next to the other that has one defective fan that died on me after a few months as well. Here it is :

• - Asus P8Z68-V PRO
• - Intel I5 2500k @ 4.5Ghz
• - Asus Geforce 580GTX DirectCUII Fermi
• - 16GB Corsair Vengeance Low Profile
• - Ultra X3 1000 Watt
• - Asus Xonar DX 7.1 \ Klipsch Promedia 2.1 THX
• - Corsair Vengeance 1300 Gaming Headset
• - Crucial M4 SSD 128GB \ WD Caviar Black 1TB
• - CoolerMaster 690II Advanced
• - Dell UltraSharp 24''
• - Noctua NH-D14

My System Specs


I never attempt any work on my pc without turning it off and removing the power cord from the power supply. After that, I flip the power switch on to de-energize all circuits. I have actually seen my mb led give a very brief flicker from time to time whem I do this. I could be wrong, but maybe a little juice left stored in the capacitors?

Wow Patriote i can only imagine the sinking feeling when the video went dead... thats gotta hurt.

At least you didnt drop a kleenex onto your radiator fans as you were wiping away those tears..

Hopefully youll get the RMA

Active memory coolers are only really necessary if you're using FB-DIMMs, which run very, very hot. I can only justify using these attachments if your chassis' side or top fans are of no help.
