Introduction: 

Today we are going to look at the Vizo Propeller II from Vizo Technologies; it is a small cooling unit that sits in an expansion slot on your case. I don’t expect this unit to get a lot of heat reduction from the computer but it definitely could keep that overclocked graphics card from overheating.

First Impression:

There really isn’t a whole lot to say, although I do find it amusing that in the specifications it says “VGA” card rather than video card, or something of the like.

The fan gets its power by a small Molex power connector; it’s actually a pretty fast little thing. At first I thought that the Vizo Propeller blew air into the case, but in reality the propeller sucks air out of the case by way of a little vent at the back of the propeller.

I think the main purpose of this fan is to promote airflow, which in turn cools down your computer, many cords make a hot environment because it blocks airflow.
