Isn't the coolit a peltier cooler? I would much rather have phase so you can clock beyond 4 Ghz.
Oh and some corsair dominator RAM.
yeah, then* you could get some killer benchmarks. Then, you could game away on crazy 30in highest res. at ultra high.Yum

it very well could be true that its fake, but I doubt it. It seems like they would have to have it hooked up to a monitor so they could run benchmarks on it or something..

if you can w/c your system, or you can cool it anyway, and have the money, why not? thats my opinion. I think I might go xfire this summer.. along with w.c. I cant wait :-D

true, but i dont think it is worth it unless your using the really high end cards.. b/c the boost/price can be beat by a better card that is overclocked
