The Corsair AirFlow Pro Dynamic LED Display
The AirFlow Pro comes in this packaging and explains that this is a Parametric Display for DHX Pro Dominator memory next to a lighted image of the AirFlow Pro mounted on top of the CMXAF2.
All of the sides on the packaging mirror the first image, except for this panel. On the light blue background Corsair listed the features of the AirFlow Pro and gives you an idea of what it takes to run it, and what should be expected.
Removing the AirFlow Pro, I found that the LED display is shipped inside of a plastic bag to keep it from rubbing against the cardboard during transit. Inside of the cardboard the unit is resting on you will locate the included hardware to make the AirFlow Pro Functional.
Removing the plastic bag from the dynamic LED display you see eighteen groups of three LEDs. The center two are used for thermal monitoring, while the other eight above and below are used for depiction of the activity of the sticks. The far end with the Corsair logo has a shroud that covers the wires and connectivity. The end closest to us has two holes, and with some included risers, mounts above the CMXAF2.
Underneath the unit is where things get interesting. You can see there is more to this assembly than just LED functionality. Included into the PCB is the chip that holds the parametric equation to make the proper activity lights turn on at the correct time.
Connectivity is simple with the AirFlow Pro. There are six 5-pin plugs in the middle that utilize the cables supplied to attach to the RAM modules. To the right is a 4-pin connection that with an included adapter, is what powers the AirFlow Pro. The white plug to the left has no explanation, but at my best guess, I assume it is what they use to program the code into the chips.
Included in the AirFlow Pro packaging you will find two risers, two lock washers, two washers, and two thumbscrews to mount the LEDs to the top of the fan.
To make sure the system has power you will use the 4-pim to Molex power cable. To transfer the information from the DHX Pro memory modules to the AirFlow Pro you will need to wire one of these six wires between the two of them.
