If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Agreed. I saw this the other day on Newegg and now we have a review on it. :lol: Looks to be damn good imo.. plus its cheaper than some of the other high-end coolers.

I was impressed with it. Every once in a while they really get it right on the money. The Big Typhoon was another example of one they got right!
