Kingston Shows Off HyperX Fan

With advances in DRAM technology, memory vendors are able to up module densities, while also providing high DRAM speeds and latencies as low as possible. For enthusiasts and overclockers, even a slightly cooler memory module could make the difference between high speed and record setting speed. Memory manufacturers went beyond heatspreaders, and started off with heatsinks mounted on top of each module. The trend was started by manufacturers such as Corsair and Patriot. The former was even the first to start the trend of active air-cooling for modules with heatsinks.

Following the likes of Corsair, G.Skill, OCZ, and A-Data, Kingston seems to be ready with its own active memory cooler that is designed to cool the recent designs of the company's modules that feature integrated heatsinks. The HyperX fan cooler consists of a blue shroud with the "X" motif cut on its sides. The top holds two blue LED-lit 60 mm fans, with a maximum acoustic output of 28 dBA. The cooler latches on to the motherboard's memory module retention knobs. Kingston is expected to launch this at the upcoming Computex event. It will be available either separately, or part of its high end T1 series HyperX kits. A teaser video can be watched here.
