Conclusion

All in all, I'm going to have to recommend this one folks. This is a new product, and I'm not certain what price will be, but I've been hearing somewhere around the US$20 - $25 mark. Is it worth it to have the extra cooling for your video card? Considering that it is already proven that you'll have a higher success rate in overclocking a card when its cooler, the answer is YES!

Bottom line...If you have any intentions of overclocking your video card in the future, then get the Crystal Orb and give yourself a much higher chance at success. Very nice job Thermaltake.

- Pros

Excellent cooling

Copper base

Reasonably quiet

- Cons

Bit pricey for a chipset cooler
