    Excellent looking cooler and not priced out of the range of most people. under £40 is always something I appreciate.

    Shame I bought this before getting the Thermaltake Frio. I am VERy disappointed with the frio, especially the terrible quality fans they use. any setting apart from the LOWEST and you are treated with horrible whirring noise.

    I think I will reaplce the fans, but thats another £15 to the £45 cost 🙁 should haver just paid extra for D14.
