    I saw the list of their memorial day sale a few days ago on a forum that includes their premium component cable and cooler stand for Wii. The cable is still very expensive but the $9.99 (after discount) cooler is a very good deal. It is the pretty much the same as the Brando's cooler but with GameStop's logo on it. The same cooler is selling at $15-$20 elsewhere. I picked up one this morning. It is pretty quite.
    Product page at Gamestop.com. More pictures on this site. There are some wrong information in the user comments. I guess they bought a different cooler stand for Wii. First, the blue light can be turn off. It has 3 setting positions: Off/light/light+fan. Second, the fan runs even at standby/Connect24 mode. Third, this model does not have the holder for WiiMote or Nunchuk. It is the same shape as the original stand by with a smaller foot print and is transparent. Fourth, the fan is very quite.

    Anyway, $9.99 is perhaps the cheapest cooler stand for Wii if you need one.

    I find it surprising that it stays on during wiiconnect24. Due to that feature I might look into this. Oh, and also for the sexy led :cool:. BTW does anyone know if the led is the same color as the wii? it looks a little lighter...

    Thanks for the info *REPPED* Will you rep me back baby? :wink:

    well if all you are doing is routing power through it, and it has it's own switch, how would the fan NOT work during WC24?

    I saw some other model used a dongle at the power port of Wii to power the fan, but this one use a simple USB adapter cable.

    Why would you need a cooler thingy if you don't play for....24 hours at a time.I mean come on I have left Madden 07' on for 24 hours and the only problem I have is with the disk. Every once and awhile it will freeze.

    Personally, the only reason I would buy it would be for the led. A 10 dollar led aint that bad imo if it looks tite. So, my question remains: Is the led on the cooler the same color as the wii led? because it looks a lot lighter.
