Default Fan on RAM

I've seen a couple pics like the one in this link:

All the way at the bottom. He has the fan right on his RAM. I can't figure out how they are doing it and keeping it to stay on. Anyone know or have a sure fire clever way of keeping it on because I'm at a loss for ideas, and with this new case coming I'll have plenty of spare fans to do it.

Plus the ram will have it's own heatspreaders I don't care to take off.

Nah those requires cutting and simple bolting. How do I bolt a fan to RAM?

Besides I just bought a new case so I'll just be cutting out the back fan grill and adding a 120mm on the side, but that doesn't help in my RAM predicament!

Hmm, actually now that I think about it, I believe I can use rubber bands that stretch over the fan and hook onto the hooks of the RAM slots. Think I've seen it that way before.

But still I want to know if someone else has done it or has any BRILLIANT ideas I can stea.....errr uhh borrow

Maybe you could make some type of standoff on the side of the case? and have the fan pointing toward's the ram instead of right on it,just a thought for ya

*EDIT*
Maybe you could make a little bracket coming off of the drive bay's inside?

Nah I want it RIGHT on top of the RAM Dont want to bother cutting a hole in the side of the case for it.

As for a bracket....well hmmmm not bad, but I'd have to wait until I saw the case, but then I don't know how well I could build a little bracket to hold it

For the bracket you could probably make it as simple as having 2 flat piece's of metal,you wouldn't really see it so it don't have to look profesional

I think its quite obvious that the fan is floating anyway, I thought you and many others have said that a fan on the ram is pointless...
