The kits don't drop in price, and Scan do it for £250ish - check the price grabber link in the article. The thing is, you can't build an external kit like this for the same money and looks - I wish they just sold the case and electronics "raw" though.

Anyone cares to elaborate? My understanding is that when OC'ing at high clocks it's either water or Peltier, since air will get you nowhere.

That said I'm wondering if the guys who disassembled the XT box con comment on:
a) the ducting of the air flow. I.e. is it possible that the fan is pulling air from around the edges of the radiators to a significant degree?
b) options for more or different fans? Maybe 2 attached to the radiators sucking filtered air in from the rear of the box where the stock fan is currently?
