    Seems more useful for smashing PCs than cooling them. :p

    $120? You're better off buying a Cooler Master Hyper 212+/EVO and putting some quieter $20 fans on it like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15s, or investing in an XSPC RX240 kit. Both will be very quiet for the same price or less.

    that's nothing, i have a 2 ton heat sink sitting outside my window that will cool ANY PC, even the last one which was on fire, installation requires heavy equipment or a really good HVAC guy.
    it runs at about 41 dbs, but that's nothing a $198 blower fan can't fix
