Monsoon II CPU Cooler Review - The latest cooling product to make its way to the [H] labs is a hybrid heatpipe/TEC based CPU cooler. Can a TEC powered by the system PSU outperform watercooling as the manufacturer claims?
I think there is a small group of you guys out there that could really use something like this. For instance, if you fold for the [H]orde (the #1 Human Genome Folding team in the world), your CPU will be running at full load constantly and the Monsoon IIs fan will stay at a more constant speed. Although to be honest unless you suffer from techno-hydrophobia (fear of water in your computer) you can probably get the same temperatures with less noise and hassle for your money from one of the reliable water cooling kits available on the market. If you think the Monsoon II will fit your needs without adding water to your case, you can pick them up at Newegg for US$150.
