For testing, I used my regular testing setup, which includes the following:


Antec SX-1030 Case w/ 170-CFM Airflow


Abit KT7A-RAID Motherboard


AMD Thunderbird 1000 (AVIA)


2 x 128MB Crucial PC133 SDRAM


Prolink XX-Player GeForce3


Testing was done by running the SiSoft Sandra Memory Benchmark Test two times in a row and then measuring the temperatures when it posted its results. This allowed for the memory to get plenty of activity so that we could see just how much difference the active cooling really made.


Results with no cooling in place:



Results with Thermaltake kit:



Not too shabby! 5-CFM equals about 5 degrees Celsius. Since my ambient temperature at testing time was 20.5, we're seeing less than a 7 degree rise in temperature when using the active cooling.
