With the minimal OC your running your ram at, I wouldn't be worried about the lack of active cooling on your dominator.
If you were running it at a substantial overclock, it might be a different story, but at 6mhz over stock it should'nt be a problem.
I always considered those fans as an added bonus for purchasing that ram, not as a requirement to operate it.
Of course, it also depends on the cooling and airflow you have in the rest of your system, if your case has poor airflow,
your ram may well need the fans to help keep their temps below dangerous levels.
I'm assuming that your using this ram: Corsair Dominator GT
