|Rob Williams||Bare in mind that not all GPU's require actively cooling memory chips. Take the 7900GT for instance. The stock cooler does not even blow air on them, and they are not covered.|

Hm. Seems like the memory is not cooled....
Yeah, that'll be my reason to not get this one.

Evercool VC-RHC GPU Cooler
Evercool is back with another graphics card cooler, and we have high hopes for this one. It looks almost like a toy, but the design could prove very smart. One immediate bonus of the cooler is that it only retails for $20, but let's see if it's worth it.
After reading my review here, feel free to discuss it here!
