The Sunbeam Overclocking Kit?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was just browsing some websites and stumbled upon this. The sunbeam overclocking cooling kit...its basicaly some sort of pipe going to the cpu and draws cool air from outside and it is quite cheap...but does anyone know how good this would perform..or if its just a bit of a gimik......because the way their bigging it up, its looks like its going to be the best thing since sliced bread.

Well it gives it a bit of cooler air.
But a side case fan would work just as well and wouldnt clutter up the case.
So ya.
Not bad but nothing worth getting even IMO.

Because of the cold air it gives my abouth 4-5°C less when my cpu is on full load. So its pretty much worth it

Im sure if you had a side fan with better circuliation you wouldve got the exact same results.
