Go here- , at the bottome people have done reviews for it.... I heard it wasn't that great though. Watercooling is much better.

To me it would make more sence to mod your case than to have that huge thing sticking out of your case. Place a few holes in your case and put an 80mm fan in there. It would look much better than that thing, add a nice grill and a led fan.

no one has tried it yet anyways because they haven't shipped it to retailers yet. this is one step in the right direction for people who use air.

I don't think I would get it especially after reading the review in that link above. Besides, crap loads of lighted fans all over the case look and work so much better.
