Summary: This is a great product. While playing games, it not only keep the laptop nice and cool but also my netherbits are comfortably cool as well. That's a first, in my experience. I've only had a it a couple months, but it's working great. It has blue LED's if you're into that kind of thing. But you can turn them off, thankfully. Although, sometimes I do go full potato, pretend i'm in Tokyo Drift 7 and turn that LED on. The ladies go nuts.
Summary: I have tried several different coolers, but I am very picky about noise levels. I had returned a few other, more expensive, models but the massive cooling fan on this one really gets the job done at a low RPM. Keeps everything cold without sounding like a harrier jet taking off. Great product.
Summary: Since this is Thermaltake, I expected the highest in quality. I did notice plugging it directly into the computer, the fan ran. However plugging it into a designated USB Hub for USB Power, the fan speed increased dramatically. I have a completely rebuilt XPS M1730 that weighs in at 11 pounds. So this massive cooler is made for such a beast.
