NZXT Cryo E40
The grayish-black Cryo E40 is made of a combination of steel mesh and plastic, and held together with a series of magnets. The top part of the cooler separates completely from the bottom, providing access to two fans that can be moved and set in place by magnets of their own.

The fairly low price of $27.99 is another selling point. Read on to find out whether the E40 will keep your system comfy.
