Cooler Master CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force Notebook Cooler Review

eteknix.com
11 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Final Thoughts It’s another tough conclusion when you look at this item as just a notebook cooler, but when you think about the added features that it incorporates, it does give a bit of room for explanation. It has a primary role of keeping your laptop cool, but also adds in a bit of flavour with the various colour schemes that you can choose in terms of lighting which is a novel touch to say the least.
  • Pros: Stylish looks, Rubber edges, Reliable brand, USB 3.0 functionality
  • Cons: Expensive when compared to competitors, Bulky, Fans require mains adapter

Cooler Master CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force

DarkVision Hardware
26 April 2011
  • Conclusion: As with all laptop coolers, the cooling potential of the SF-19 is quite limited because you're not directly cooling the internal components but the laptop's base. On top of that, most laptops have a plastic base, a material that doesn't excel at dissipating heat. Still, being able to drop temperatures by 5-6°C is a pretty good score. Other good points are the carrying handle, the great comfort when used on your lap and the USB 3.0 hub.

Coolermaster Storm SF-19 Strike Force battles high notebook temperatures

  • Summary: If you're even half the nerd that I am you might eventually have wondered what's inside your notebook, where the irritating noise of a fan suddenly came from when watching Youtube vids, and very maybe you might have wondered why your notebook sometimes gets so hot! I'm a bit being sarcastic here as I perfectly know most of our readers indeed do understand what's going on inside the metal or plastic housing, yet still what's there to do when temps keep on rising?

CM Storm Strike Force SF-19 Laptop Cooler

Benchmark Reviews
28 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Scores and ratings will often change with the introduction of new products as well as the added experience of the reviewer. As such the scores can't always be directly compared with previous hardware because old reviews don't get adjusted when new items are introduced. When considering purchase of a product it is always best to compare attributes based on your preferences and needs instead of comparing somewhat arbitrary scores.
  • Pros: USB 3.0, Good Cooling Performance, Fans can be customized!, Fan speed adjustment (continuous scale), Large cooling surface, Cable Management Grooves, Nice materials
  • Cons: Heavy, Expensive, AC adapter required, Power hungry

[Review] Cooler Master Storm SF-19 Strike Force

TechREACTION
24 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The Cooler Master Storm SF-19 is making strides in the right direction. With laptops becoming more than just web surfing and email checking machines, items like the SF-19 will be in higher demand. The ambient lighting effect from the SF-19 was a great addition if you like hardware that stands out. With the seven colors to choose from, we are sure most everyone will find one they can use. If bright lights are not you’re thing, you can always choose not to use them.

Cooler Master Storm SF-19 Strike Force Laptop Cooler

OverClock Intelligence Agency
5 November 2010
  • Summary: At the beginning of this review I made the statement that over several years of testing various manufacturers notebook coolers I had yet to find one that impressed me. Most laptops are not designed to be gaming machines, they're made for browsing the web, checking email and doing other general tasks that do not require a lot of processing or graphical power, and as such do not normally generate a lot of heat.

CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force

Overclockers Club
1 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force is one of the best laptop coolers that I have reviewed. While it isn't the most mobile, it still makes an effort to be able to be totted around to LAN parties or wherever by way of a handle in the rubber edging. Also, the impressively large cooling surface and the replaceable fans really allow you to get the best cooling for your laptop while still letting you customize the fans to make the SF-19 your own.
  • Pros: Large cooling surface accommodates up to 19" laptops., Two large fans provide excellent cooling., LEDs provide a cool look and multiple color options., LEDs can be turned off for a more professional and subtle look., Fan speed is adjustable., USB 3.0 Hub allows for expansion up to 4 devices., Handle in rubber casing to use in the event it needs to be moved.
  • Cons: Very large size hinders mobility.
