Clearly, the Chilly Vent Lux was not designed for high-performance, overclocking applications — its half the size and half the price of the big tower style coolers. The Asus Chilly Vent Lux is targeted towards AMD users looking for a compact, quiet cooling solution that is quick and easy to install. And in those areas it excels. The flashy green and white fan also makes the Chilly Vent Lux stand out from the crowd.
If you don’t already have a cooler for your AMD processor and want one that is easy to install, quiet and won’t break the budget, then the Chilly Vent Lux could be a good solution. It’s too bad the Chilly Vent Lux only works with AMD processors. This could be an attractive solution for some Core 2 Duo users as well.
The Asus Chilly Vent Lux is currently available with a typical street price of $29.99 USD.
