60mm ram fan cooling?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I want to get a Crucial Ballistix Active Cooling Fan for my ram. But I know usually most of the fan that come with it will probably be prone to failure so I want to get some 60mm fans for it. Does anyone know what the exact dimensions for these fans are? It's 60mm x ???? I was considering the CORSAIR CMXAF2 and they use 60mm x 20mm fans but the mounting on them are a bit too tall. It looks like the Crucial Ballistix ACF uses 60 x 20/25mm but I'm sure. If it is 25mm there will be better replacement fans for the 25mm as 10mm and 20mm there aren't a whole lot of choices with the CMXAF2.

So anyone know the fan dimensions used for the Crucial?

Well initially I was going to get the Corsair ram cooler but some people said the fans died on them within 3 months and Corsair only offers 1 year warranty. Buying 60mm x 20mm fans would lessen my options of getting decent fans and will cost me extra to remove the stock fans and replace them with aftermarket fans. So I kind of opted for the Crucial but some reviews said it would block PCIE ports and I can't have that happening as I use the top PCIE port of my board for my videocard. It also only comes with a 1 year warranty and I don't know the dimensions of the fan beyond 60mm so it's a gamble trying to figure out which thickness of fans would fit if the fans were ever to die. If it were to be 10mm or 20mm it would lessen my choices for fans and would also cost way too much for me to opt for this solution as aftermarket fans would cost extra.

The fans I considered for 60mm x 25mm for custom mod ram cooler:

Noiseblocker Black Silent Fan NB-XR1 60 x 25mm Ultra Silent Case Fan 11CFM 11dBA

Noiseblocker Black Silent Fan NB-XR2 60 x 25mm Ultra Silent Case Fan 14CFM 15dBA

Panaflo / NMB FBA06HA12H1BX 60x25mm Hydro Wave Bearing Case Fan with RPM Sensing 19.1CFM 32dBA

Even if I were to go the custom cooling route with my own choice of fans I would have to spend extra time and money to build my own mount.

But I found something way better for the price/features that is tough to beat and if Corsair and Crucial wants to step up their game they better bring something better to the table. But I found what I wanted, the Arctic Cooling RC Turbo Module which uses 56mm fans. I can get it for $17.99 shipped, that price is tough to beat and it even comes with a 6 year warranty. I have had good experiences with Arctic Cooling products so I'll go with this. Thanks for the reply and mod ideas though.
