Patriot has released a high-end memory cooling solution called Vortex.
"Patriot's Vortex active cooling fan is the perfect way to help keep your memory operating at optimal performance. Heat is a major enemy when it comes to high-performance overclocking memory."

"By adding airflow directly over the memory, Vortex can lower module temperatures up to 30%. This means potentially higher performing memory with increased stability for running today's complex multi-threaded applications which require high-bandwidth, low-latency memory."

In order to ensure constant operation without voltage fluctuations, Vortex requires a dedicated 12v connection from your power supply.
The two 40mm fans spin at 5000RPM so while it should keep your memory cool you can expect a lot of noise..
