Today we’re announcing the Crucial® Ballistix Active Cooling Fan, a snap-on proactive solution to decrease memory module heat by increasing airflow directly over the motherboard’s memory slots. Watch a short video demonstrating how the fan increases airflow inside a computer case artificially filled with smoke (this is a pretty unique video and definitely worth two minutes of your time):
Lexar Media, a leading global provider of memory products for digital media, today announced the Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan, a snap-on proactive solution to decrease memory module heat by increasing airflow. The Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan cools memory modules by eliminating “dead spots” of airflow within the case. The fan is especially effective with water-cooled systems where internal airflow around the memory modules is often minimal. Watch a short video demonstrating how the Crucial fan increases airflow inside a computer case artificially filled with smoke. The Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan is available globally today through select partners and online at Crucial.com.
“With higher densities of memory running fully populated in motherboard memory slots—along with faster speeds—performance systems demand additional cooling,” said Jeremy Mortenson, Crucial senior product manager. “Whether you run your memory at stock speeds or push it to the limits with overclocking, temperature plays a critical role in reliability. The new Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan can improve airflow and keep your memory running cooler.”
Featuring two 60mm fans, the new Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan is easy to attach—requiring no tools for installation—and comes with a simple flexible power connection. In addition, its low noise level and clear design make it even more attractive, as it complements most case designs and allows a view of the LEDs from installed Crucial Ballistix Tracer high-performance memory.
Dimensions: 155mm x 77.6mm x 71.6mm, 2 x 60mm fans, Fan speed: 3000 RPM +/- 10%, Airflow: 15CFM, Weight: 200g, Connection: 3-pin power connector (4-pin adapter included). Competitively priced at £18.79 (inc. VAT), the Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan is available globally through select partners and online at Crucial.com"
