Thermaltake Massive23 LX Laptop Cooler
28 July 2014
Excerpt: Thermaltake is one of those companies that is very serious when it comes to cooling products. Don’t believe me? Hop on over to their website and you will see everything from CPU cooling, to laptop cooling, and even personal cooling. And coming from Thermaltake's laptop cooling products is their very successful Massive line. The Massive series is aimed at persons whose laptops are of the larger and higher performance variety, like the Sony F series I currently have.
Excerpt: Thermaltake is no stranger to cooling, it's what they do. Besides making world class CPU coolers, cases and power supplies, they also make some of the best notebook coolers on the market. I've already had the pleasure to check out two previous models of their Massive line of notebook coolers; the Massive 23 CS and the Massive 23 ST . I'm back today with their newest model; the Thermaltake Massive23 LX Notebook Cooler . What's the difference between them, you ask?
Summary: The Massive23 LX has a nice looking, lightweight design and the cooling performance to back it up. Being available for a price point usually reserved for the cheaper plastic coolers and passive laptop pads makes it a pretty good bargain, as well.
Summary: I don't like a lot of laptop coolers. The ones that seem to work well are too bulky to be reasonably portable. However, I think Thermaltake has struck the right balance between performance and portability here. At the same time, they made it look good. The clean lines, smooth feel, and usability make this cooler a pleasure to use and a great addition to a mobile office. At under $30 it is reasonably priced for those who might be looking to get a laptop cooler.
Summary: To get some baseline temperatures for the laptop we first ran it on the Lenovo Advanced Dock doing some Prime95 to get things heated up. While many may say that this is not a typical situation for a laptop to be ran at 100% load, many people today use their laptops for 3D Modeling and light workstation rendering. This puts the laptop under huge amounts of stress and things heat up quickly.
Pros: Very solid, lightweight construction, Rubber accents on top keep laptop raised for better cooling and provide non-slip surface, Cable storage inside the unit, Very quiet and good cooling
Conclusion: Kao što vidimo iz provedenih testova, uz korištenje hladnjaka komponente prijenosnika su u prosjeku bile 2-3°C niže. Nekako nam se čini da je tvrdi disk najviše profitirao, što je bitno jer je on i temperaturno najosjetljiviji. Moramo napomenuti kako se pod oprerećenjem ventilator unutar prijenosnika sporije vrtio sa uključenim Massive-om, nego bez čime je eliminirana i znatnija količina buke.
Pros: Kvaliteta izrade, solidne performanse, tih rad, cijena.
Cons: Povišena pozicija prijenosnika na hladnjaku neće se svima svidjeti.
