    Either way if you cool with water or air, there are better coolers on the market for what the Vigor cost.

    Most of the Xigmatek 1283/1284 lineup, the Scythe Mugen 2, a bunch of others really.

    The Vigor is a descent cooler dont get me wrong, but as I say for the price of $55 the Xigs can do a bit better as well as the mugen in the $30-40 range depending on where you get them.
