    7/26/2006 - All of the computer enthusiasts worldwide can rejoice! Computer modification is an absolutely bottomless pit and Modders will never be satisfied. Thermaltake has recently launched a new DDR modular memory cooler named the Cyclo (CL-R0023) and satisfies the cooling needs of 4 sticks of RAM all at once. The superior styling and design will soon make this cooler a favorite among the world of enthusiasts.

    The design of the Cyclo comes from free bicycling competition. The aerodynamic design is derived from the way the cyclists slice through wind, bringing users a free and liberal feeling. The two sets of 40mm clear LED fan increases the cooling capacity of the heatsinks without increasing the noise of the computer system. The Cyclo can be installed on either side of the memory modules, depending on the preference of the user. The two ends of the unit are designed ergonomically so that the installation can be convenient and trouble-free.

    If you have good air flow then those things are pointless. Unless your really pumping some serious volts into them your going to want to go WC. And thats even overkill for ram.

    Hey, they'd make one cool set of glasses, and your eyes could be overclocked.

    I might get them, or the other ones at newegg...GeIL won't support you unless you have 10-15CFM airflow on your memory...

    Are you joking...? Do they send nanobots through the internet to check your ariflow? I have Geil memory - very happy with it. I also have a 120mm casefan at the bottom of my box blowing up through the memory/chipset, etc... this would be a waste of time for me (I think!)

    Well, they won't support you unless you have air blowing on/through them, but I say I do anyway...my Big Typhoon probably does blow air over them too...

    They would look nice in a windowed case, but seem to be a bit of a gimmick. Then again, I don't understand why anyone has a problem with airflow in their case. Case modding is simple, the information is out there and free... and fans are dirt cheap....

    If there isn't enough air blowing over your RAM, or through your case, do something about! it :)

    Begin rant
    why do they have to put LED's in EVERYTHING these days?

    What about us people who don't want their computers to be shining brilliantly blue all night?!?!
    What about those of us who don't want to be blinded every time we turn on our computers????

    ok maybe i'm a dying breed, but i like "subtly" lit cases. My Sunbeam charmelions work fine for lighting, AND they don't blind me. believe it or not.

    So why does every manufacturer HAVE to put blue LED's in ALL their parts!!?!??!?!

    End Rant

    Other than that, these look pretty cool. well, just for looks. the functionality really isn't there.

    but there are always those suckas out there that WILL buy it.

    I say they should keep LEDs in everything, but at least put a switch for the ones who don't want it...or offer two models like Zalman does...

    did you get the TT newsletter as well? ::haha:: I think this is a good product and not overpriced. Thermaltake makes great stuff, from Cases and PSUs to modding accessories and coolers. I have to disagree with the friends dont let friends buy thermaltake statement.
    Now, Im not a fanboy, but I do recognize quality, craftsmanship and bang for buck and I believe TT to be that.

    i agree that thermaltake makes great stuff.

    but some stuff is just a bit overkill.
