Closer Look: NZXT CRYO X60
The top layer of NZXT Cryo X60 is made of black anodized aluminum, The bottom and sides are made of plastic. It contains two 120mm fans inside that are extremely quiet to the point where the sound is undetectable beneath a laptop. It is made of sturdy construction, it does not bend under pressure. Which is not always something that can be said about other laptop cooling products, typically if you put enough weight on a laptop cooler they do not operate correctly, as the fan blades scrape or stop all together from the frame being flimsy.
At first glance that crease on the right side of the cooler may seem perplexing but actually it creates a tiny gap between the surface of the cooler and the bottom of the laptop. This tiny gap also acts as a means for air to pass through the vents and circulate out of the back specifically where crease forms a noticeably steeper incline.
There are a total of 434 air flow vents on the Cryo X60, the fans truly produce an even cooling effect, anywhere I hover my hand above the cooling vents the air flow feels the same.
The cooler was designed with heat dissipation in mind, the aluminum top side is 1/8" thick and extends out allowing the head to disperse away and serves as a solid platform to hold up a laptop.
The Cryo X60 is very slim, in total its thickness is 1.89 inches including the legs, the actual thickness of the cooler excluding the legs is only 1.25 inches thick and fits snug together with a laptop in a carrying case.
Without the leg extensions out the cooler sits 1/2" off the ground in the back, and with the legs extended it sits up 1 1/8". Providing extra space for air flow to the fans, May not be necessary on a flat surface however when used on a soft surface such as a bed with the legs extended the fans can still draw in enough air to function efficiently.
