it's the most cost efficient air cooling solution out ATM...
Is it better than the V8?
^^ my current considerations
The V8 looks significantly better, copper base, higher fan speed/CFM.... lower noise
The price looks nice for that quality though, I'm still unsure of my budget on this 1, had a few unforeseen expenses come up.
