Vigor Gaming Monsoon II Lite TEC CPU Cooling System ReviewPosted on 2007-05-01 20:33:12 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Central Processing Units are in dire need of a cooling revolution. With each new generation we see temperatures climbing and while there are breaks in this trend where we see a change in the manufacturing of a particular product however nothing has made any notable gains in dropping the overall heat generated. A few degrees here and there when we see a shift but the fact remains that we still need to cool CPUs and air cooling for the hardcore overclocker just won’t cut it. Moving to a water-cooled solution can be expensive; generally a $200+ investment wouldn’t be unusual while high end air coolers can be had for $50 - $70. Vigor Gaming has filled this void with the Monoon II Lite which incorporates a TEC (Thermoelectric chip). The Monsoon can provide near water cooling without the hassle of installing a water cooled setup.
