    What It Is

    Well, some things are beautiful in their complexity and their design, and other things are beautiful in their simplicity. This monitor cooler falls into the latter category. It consists of 2 parts: The fan that sits atop your monitor, and the slot cover that mounts inside yout PC.

    The monitor fan utilizes a clever combination of a small metal hook and rubber feet to stay attached to your monitor's housing. This means that once you hook it on, it likely won't come off if you're not moving your screen. The thin wire coming out of the back of the fan unit is almost 6 feet long, so most people won't have any trouble getting the cord run to the back of their box.

    The Slot cover is again an extremely simple design, a molex connector attached to a slot cover you screw into the back of your tower. The wire attached to it is really thin and plenty long, so you shouldn't need to do much work at all in order to hook it in.

    On another note, for those of you who are like me, you're sacrificing your first PCI slot to a useful heat sink for your AGP card. Make good use of that unusable slot and cool off your monitor!

    Results

    Well, unfourtinately for this part I don't have hard numbers, as I'm too chicken to actually stick anything inside of my monitor while its running to take the temps. (yeah, I'm a wuss, but I'm not interested in finding a random capacitor to act as ground for, monitors are dangerous, don't poke around inside of them unless you're well trained.)

    As far as easily observeable results, here's what I've got for ya. Without the cooler on the monitor, the monitor is very notably warm on the top. It makes a great handwarmer in winter because of that, and yes I'm speaking from experience. But with this monitor cooler hooked up and running, well, the top of the screen is completely room temperature. I can't tell the difference. I'd say it did its job very well.

    The only concern I had about this when I got it was this; how loud would it be? Well, I know fans, and I can tell ya this little baby is whisper silent. I didn't even notice it was on intil I stuck my hand over it. I was duly impressed.
