    it looks pretty interesting, but I would like to see a lot of tested reviews before I lay down $60 for it
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I think they need to stress the importance of having the mounting holes. I know they mention it, but they dont say why its important.
    On the onther hand there is no clip, so that would prevent someone trying to clip one of these on. so thats a plus.
    i dont see any wires, so before i would ever think of buyin one i would need someone to answer some questions.

    I think its simple and cheap, but has some downsides in its simplicity.
    I would give it a look, if its cool enough.

    It's an interesting concept, but my main concern would be the fact that it will be operating in a sideways position all the time. Since a vast majority of enthusiast users have tower-type cases, the cooler would be at a 90 degree angle at all times. One small leak and you'll be in the market for a new processor and mainboard.

    Boy, that's not a very good warrenty, "One year warranty on this item and you may return it for a full refund within the first year as long as it is in unused and brand new condition."

    As long as it's UNUSED and BRAND NEW! LOL

    I'd like to see reviews too....

    Not enough radiator area or air flow, stick with a Volcano or MXC462 or a REAL water cooling setup, this thing is a costly gimmick!

    Corbinator - I got a coffee can that can give you 20HP to your car!

    I once used a pair of beer cans for mufflers on a 69 Corvette. I just couldn't wait for my custom mufflers and the Vette was too loud with open headers. I took a metal clothes hanger and made a cage for the cans that held them loosely against the header exhaust flange.
