Well, if you're doing some extreme overclocking and you need to get every last drop of performance out of your memory, I guess that would be a good idea to use. Otherwise, it's just a waste of money.

Wow thats diff, never seen fans on one before!

But yeah its a bit much really unless u have ddr2 1066 overclocked massively with loads of heat being pumped out of ur cpu etc into ur case.

lol only 20??? if you buy the corsair ram it costs alot more just to add the fan to it. when i bought my system a little after christmass, if i wanted the RAM with fans on it, i would ahve payed like $100 extra.
