Conclusion:

The Spotcool does its job well, providing cooling to those tight to reach areas. However, if an in-depth cooling plan with lots of after market additions is already in use, then the Spotcool might not be the right choice. In addition, if a small case or a rather full case is what you have, you might look to smaller solutions to your cooling problems as it can be tricky to find a place to screw down the Spotcool. Though in all fairness, the Spotcool did its job and did it well in many cases (8 degree drop on the north bridge! Wow!) and could provide that extra little boost you need to get your overclock to the next level. Also, if you are a case modder, this could be the cool device that all of your friends ask you about. After all, how often do you see a fan on a stick? Finally, the speed control dial allows those who wish to have a quiet computer or own an HTPC to still be able to use the Spotcool without sacrificing their precious silence.

 

Pros:

  • Ability to get into tight spots.
  • LEDs (for some).
  • Provides cooling to vital components that most forget about.
  • Fan speed control.

 

 

Cons:

  • LEDs (for some).
  • Not good for small cases.
  • Might hinder well thought out cooling plans currently in use.
