    I'm not exactly sure, I would guess it is a conditioner for the PCI-E bus power supply.

    I could see this is feasible for large scale applications. Like photoshop on a 60" HDTV. For a desktop setting however..it does seem rather useless lol.

    It's just His's way to get more money out of the people that are stupid.. To take noise out of the PCI-e slots and so forth.. Not worth it if your system in built quite right...

    You are right Newtekie... The worst waste of $90...

    I have seen that on Newegg, looks like a huge waste of money, even has bad review on Newegg.

    it might help it looks like it only has a bunch of capacitors on it maybe for getting rid of some of the harmonics produced in the system

    If your running 4 highend video cards it could help. I would like to see a test of that.

    93 bucks w/o shipping on the 'Egg, for a blank PCB with a few capacitors is kind of rediculous imo. Interesting concept, and maybe like you say DaM it could be useful for someone running 4 cards, but if they're running fine as-is...what good does this $100-ish investment really truly do aside from help empty your wallet? Sorry but I call rip-off product scheme on this one, I could be wrong, and we'll see down the road if this picks up or fades away. Definately intersting though.

    Meh, if it improved image quality or added some FPS to games then it'd be something I might consider. But if it helps with benchers going for that max OC for that next "wr" then that'd be the way to go. This product is not for someone like me I suppose.

    I mean if it does what it says I could see it working on getting super high clocks with multiple cards.
