nah, it is actually quite effect you can see a decent difference (see: X-Fi Zone: X-RAM) the only reason I don't need x-ram is because barely any games use it

I have heard mixed reviews regarding the coolit tec cooler.

I would do some more research before I would consider buying it

I still do not think it is worth the extra 40-50 bucks it is.

eh, TEC + Simple installation = good

Pretty great temperatures and its relatively quiet for a high performance cooling system

Not to mention the tubing is already wired so it doesn't kink

Yeah, and it also cramps up your computer case like no other. And note that it will turn your computer into a space heater, thank god mine doesn't run all that hot.

My brothers x1950xtx will heat his room if he leaves his door closed...
