Cooler Master Notepal X3 Review
18 October 2012
Summary: The Cooler Master Notepal X3 is a high-quality, lightweight notebook cooler that will definitely keep your system chilly. Its sleek design and mood lights are a nice touch, adding to the value of a lower temperature notebook. The X3 was not only the most effective in keeping our notebook's temperature down, it kept our hands from getting sweaty, too.
Excerpt: Anyone that's ever had a laptop on their, well lap, will know how hot some of these machines can run. Especially if you're playing games or watching a long movie. We take a look at Cooler Master's new NotePal X3 Cooling Pad to see if it will keep your notebook from running a fever.
Pros: Big, 200mm fan, Quiet, Lightweight
Cons: Flimsy, plastic construction, Extra features don't work that well
Summary: Please keep in mind that the ThinkPad T410 runs a toasty Core i7-620M 2.66GHz processor that "Turbo's" up to 3.1GHz. Also the temperatures recorded below are CPU Core temperatures and these are always reported much warmer than "standard" CPU temperatures. With that in mind, take a look and see how much the Cooler Master X3 compares to the U Stand, LapAir and the Massive23 LX and finally to the stifling Lenovo Dock.
Pros: Durable and light-weight construction, Large Fan, Excellent Cooling, Adjustable Speed & Fan Power Switch, Easily fits up to 17" laptops, Height adjustable, LED Lights can be toggled on or off
Cons: Quite loud at maximum speed, Doesn't offer any extra USB ports, Vent for hand cooling is pretty much a gimmick
Excerpt: Coolermaster comes to us today with a new entry into the budget power supply market. The GX450 is a 450 watt unit that promises 80 Plus performance in a small package at a reasonable price. It's time to find out what this little unit can do.
