CORSAIR AirFlow Pro
Pros: Provides a visual cue as to the temperature and usage of your compatible Corsair DOMINATOR / DOMINATOR GT and/or DOMINATOR GTX DDR3 memory modules. Supports up to 6 RAM DIMM chips but can also be used in single or double DIMM configurations. Make sure the DOMINATOR brand you puchase has the new connector on the top side of your RAM sticks so you can use this product correctly. This product does NOT (as of this writing) support XMS3 or VENGEANCE memory. Very easy to install above airflow fan and is very accurate at telling us what's happening with your RAM utilization & temperature for each installed RAM stick. Adds "bling" to your system in the form of blinking LED lights. Not having a window on your PC's case totally strips away this products usefulness.
Cons: I would have liked it if Corsair made their other RAM styles compatible like the Vengeance or XMS3 chips but unfortunately, it only works with certain DOMINATOR / DOMINATOR GT / or DOMINATOR GTX memory modules. Some people just hate blinky bling.
Overall Review: This is sort of like an answer to Crucial's Ballistix Tracer modules except that those modules have LED lights built into the actual PCB of the RAM stick. This also harkens back to the days of when Corsair released their XMS modules with built-in LEDs.
Corsair AirFlow Pro Display and AirFlow 2 Fan Review
If you already own the AirFlow 2 and want to build off that design even more you can purchase the AirFlow Pro (part number CMXAFPRO), which is a parametric display for Dominator memory modules that are equipped with DHX Pro. This is the latest revision of activity lights and is basically an LED light bar that shows you what it going on with your memory modules when it comes to both temperature and activity. The Corsair AirFlow Pro mounts above the Corsair AirFlow 2 and then a wire is plugged into the available DHX Pro connector on your Corsair memory module The The AirFlow Pro has an MSRP of $ and we found it available at Newegg for $ shipped.
Key Features of the Corsair AirFlow Pro:
- RGB Temperature Monitoring LEDs
- Activity LEDs with support for up to six modules
- Easily installs on top of Corsair Airflow 2 fan
- 2 Year Warranty
- Dominator Memory with DHX Pro technology (DOMINATOR Modules with part numbers starting with CMP and CMT)
- Corsair Airflow 2 fan SKU # CMXAF2
- NOT compatible with Airflow 1 SKU # CMXAF
In order to run both you are looking at spending ~$, which is a decent amount of money in all honesty. This is why they are available to purchase separately and they are clearly aimed at enthusiasts, gamers and case modders. We tried out the AirFlow 2 and the Airflow Pro out on a pair of Corsair Dominator DHX DDR3 memory modules at both MHz and MHz clock frequencies to see if we could find a temperature decrease.
As you can see from the chart above we did notice a huge difference with and without the Corsair AirFlow 2 fan cooling the memory modules. I observed a 8C temperature decrease at idle and a 12C decrease at load with the DDR3 clock frequency set to MHz. We also tested on the open test bench, so to see this big of a difference outside of a case was rather shocking. With the memory running MHz the temperature decrease was even higher! We all know that heat is an enemy of PC components and by decreasing the termperature levels of your memory modules you are likely to increase the clock frequency you can hit when overclocking and improve the lifespan of the modules.
For this review we recorded a video so you could hear how loud the two 60mm fans are and to see what the display looks like with the system running.
Final Thoughts and Conclusions:
If you like to dress up your rig with a bit of flash, the LED status module adds a really nice visual effect for your DHX Pro memory kits. The RGB LEDs provide quite the light show while providing a bit of function from being able to actually see the memory activity and memory temperature at a glance.
In the end the Corsair AirFlow 2 memory cooling solution proved to be worth it. If you have a tight case with a lot of hot components and limited airflow using the Corsair Airflow 2 is a really good idea. The Corsair AirFlow Pro on the other hand really isnt needed by the average user. It does provide those with windowed cases a cool visual effect, but at $ shipped on top of the $ shipped I found the AirFlow 2 to be a tough sell. Both products work as advertised though and we had no issues with either during testing and use.
Corsair is one of the few companies that continues to support the enthusiast community with niche products like this and is also a reason their memory costs a little more than other brands. How many other memory modules come with connectors on them to attach accessories like the AirFlow Pro? Corsair is always one step ahead of other companies and we like to that you can expand on the Dominator series down the road if you would like to.
The Legit Bottom Line: The Corsair Airflow 2 and AirFlow Pro proved to be great accessories for those that own Dominator memory kits and want to improve cooling or find out what your memory is doing!
