dEjAvU schrijft dat Xtreme Tek een reviewtje in elkaar heeft gedraaid van de 2CoolPC & 2CoolPC Plus apparaatjes. Deze koelslurfjes bleken volgens de reviewer wel goed te presteren, en het ziet er beter uit dan kartonnen knutsels om de airflow te regelen (toch femme?):
The ambient room temperature was around 70° F for all three tests phases. These results are fairly astounding! The video card dropped 10° from the previous setup during the torture tests and it dropped 11° with the Plus unit. I didn't expect the higher out put fan to make a huge difference, and it didn't really. Just a quick mention, both these devices bring the temperature after the torture tests back down to idle within 2 minutes (usually less). That's pretty darn fast.
So, what's the bottom line? Should you pick one up? I'd say yes. If you're not into the whole cutting 120mm blow holes into your case thing, this is a very viable solution. If you plan to overclock your video card, then think of this product highly.
Though the this design is not earth shattering, it is a good idea. At $24.95 for the regular 2Cool PC and $34.95 for the plus unit, this could be considered pricey buy some. The Plus unit's 92mm fan moves 50 CFM, that's 8 more cubic feet per minute than the 42 CFM fan in the non-plus unit. If you're not willing to shell out $10 for the 8 extra CFM, then stick with the 2Cool PC. If you have a huge case (server case), I'd go ahead an pay for the 8 extra CFM.
