Fremont, California, USA, August 4, 2008 – Patriot Memory, a global provider of premium quality memory module and flash memory solutions, today announced the release of their newest product, Vortex. Vortex, an active cooling fan, is designed to increase stability and performance of overclocked memory for PC enthusiasts and gamers by lowering memory module temperatures.
„Patriot’s Vortex active cooling fan is the perfect way to help keep your memory operating at optimal performance,“ said Les Henry, Technical Director of Patriot Memory. „Heat is a major enemy when it comes to high-performance overclocking memory. By adding airflow directly over the memory, Vortex can lower module temperatures up to 30%. This means potentially higher performing memory with increased stability for running today’s complex multi-threaded applications which require high-bandwidth, low-latency memory.“
Patriot’s Vortex uses a unique in-slot and rotating fan design to direct the airflow in the most effective way for each individual system. Utilizing an un-used DIMM slot, vibration is non-existent, even while dual 40mm, 5,000 rpm fans are spinning. And operating on a constant 12v dedicated by the power supply, Vortex’s airflow is never compromised due to potential motherboard voltage fluctuations.
