Kingston launches dual cooling fans for memory boards -- and they wink to match your music moodThe world's largest independent manufacturer of memory modules came up with a -- literally -- cool idea at the recent Computex show in Taiwan: the HyperX Fan for its own HyperX memory modules. Intended to cool the twin memory chips on the board, the Fab module sits on top the 6GB combo of chips - and cool the board at a whisper-quiet 25 dbA noise level. What's more 8 blue LEDS on top, dance in unison, making for a cool cooling idea.
The fans can be bought separately or integrated with Kingston's 6GB 2000 MHz and 6GB 1800 MHz memory modules. The items are expected to reach India soon -- and though the company has not released price information yet, we understand they might add very little to the cost of the memory and when obtained separately might cost the equivalent of $ 25.
Games freaks are used to overclock their CPUs like mad -- and these fans might just help that happen, even as they send out a hep blue message en route.
