great looks

  • Summary: overall it looks great in the case and does get the air moving around the ram
  • Pros: looks great, speed/temp readout on the fan, improves airflow to ram
  • Cons: fins don't appear to do much more than look pretty - a little pricey for a pretty fan with a readout. if the fins had more actual function than 5 eggs no problem. also a little difficult to get clamped on.
