Kingston has introduced the HyperX Fan, a new memory cooling solution with two 60mm fans. You can get the stand-alone product for $23, or in a kit with 6GB DDR3 2000MHz CL9-9-9-27 and 6GB 1800MHz DDR3 CL9-9-9-27 memory for $334 and $297, respectively.
"At LAN parties and benchmarking events worldwide, HyperX enthusiasts told us they wanted something cool looking to keep the memory cool," said Dara Sun, HyperX product manager, Kingston. "We listened and thus developed this fan as the perfect complement for both the standard and taller HyperX T1 series modules. The hip blue lights give it a bling factor that could be the difference between first and second place in a system-build competition."
The HyperX Fan is made of anodized aluminum and in the same familiar blue color as the HyperX heatspreaders. When turned on, the fan blades are illuminated by eight small blue LEDs. Power use is minimal and noise is not an issue as the fan runs at a whisper-quiet 25 dBA. The fan is available as a standalone or bundled with Kingston’s 6GB 2000- and 1800MHz triple-channel memory kits with the T1 heatspreaders for Intel Core i7 systems.
