Here is the test setup we used to test the G.Skill modules:
|Motherboard||ASUS Maximus 4 Gene-Z (Z68)|
|OS||Windows 7 Fresh Install w/All Drivers|
Here you can see that the fan really is nice and blue, the only downside is that it covers up a large part of the CPU heatsink area. We don't really know how you can fit an aftermarket cooler for the CPU on there without moving the fan to the side. Yet we do get a fair amount of airflow from the fan.
Here we can see that the cooler fits on the board very nicely. It is designed to just be dropped in without the use of a screw driver, and we really like that fact.
