No matter which laptop you have, the expensive or inexpensive one, they pretty much all seem to get very hot in a short period of time. NZXT has released their fifth notebook cooler, the Cryo X60, model RN-CRX60-B1. With a slim profile design using two 120mm asymmetrical cooling fans, aluminum construction, and high airflow with vented aluminum mesh cutouts. Supports laptops up to 16" screen size. This is a premium laptop cooler with an integrated 4 port usb hub and a 5 speed fan controller that runs optionally on Usb power or AC adapter. Built by NZXT known for gamer enthusiast quality cooling products and accessories, Benchmark Reviews will be testing this cooler for performance and value.
Anyone who has owned a laptop knows about how hot they get, the bottom is often hot enough to make the user uncomfortable especially when using on their actual lap. Not only is a hot laptop an inconvenience unless maybe your freezing in the winter, but the heat also cause a laptop to work harder and the parts go out quicker. High heat can cause a laptop to run slower especially if the temperatures reach the throttling threshold. Cpu fan failure and overheating is a common reason laptops go out, the Cryo X60 can assist the cpu fan so it doesn't have to work as hard and last longer and keep temperatures lower on the hard drive and motherboard so they last longer as well.
The Cryo X60 will be tested in how well it cools a laptop, and if there are any measurable performance gains. It will also be inspected of its composition and how well the materials used help dissipate heat. I will also be testing how portable this cooler is in real world every day use.
