Sytrin KuFormula VF1 Plus

The Sytrin KuFormula VF1 Plus is one of the finest air solutions we have EVER laid our eyes on, and it is certainly a prime example of how a relative newcomer can shake the PC cooling industry with fresh thinking.

This product is definitely worth looking into with its near universal support for both ATI and NVIDIA products.
