    CPU fan for DIMM 2 slot?

    For those using the DIMM2 slot: Did you install an external fan on top of it? The manual is woefully vague about this feature.

    I have not installed any fans, using a Samsung 960 Pro and 960 Evo in it.
    My case Coolermaster HAF-X have a lot of big fans in it, which helps to keep a good airflow.

    In the top of the case is a Corsair H100i v2 in a push-pull config, that removes hot air from the top of the case.

    I installed the fan on top a few days ago. I had some old GSKILL Memory fans that I used to mount on the top. I do not know what the temp was before I put them on (I forgot to check) but now both M2 drives with the fan are 28 and 29c which is really cool
