Summary: When I order, I order from here. Delivery is smokin' fast, service is courteous, and advice is good with questions. As far as Zolman? You can't get better regardless of price-notebook coolers, whisper fans for servers and desktops, and quality unsurpassed. I have had my first cooler for 4 years now, and never a hiccup.
Summary: Overall NCIX handled me very well. My 1st one of these I sent back through RMA request. NCIX delivered the 2nd one with-in 3 days to Penticton, BC via Purolater. Excellent experience and good fan.
Pros: Solid construction, class design, looks good, integrity from Zalman Tech, fan runs quiet at highest RPM
Cons: this is my 2nd fan. The 1st one had a faulty on switch.
Summary: My laptop was overheating after a few hours of use. It gets so hot that it is burning to the touch and everything slows to a crawl. With this unit, all my problem is solved. It's sleek looking, very inexpensive, and works like a dream.
Summary: I bought this notebook cooler to cool down a Compaq Presario laptop that kills flies daring to land on it (really). That laptop had some very hot GPU chipset temperature (85 to 100 celcius when watching videos...) that would sometimes makes its solder parts melt and disconnect from the motherboard due to a very bad heatsink, forcing me to reflow the chip. With this cooler, the GPU temperature dropped to around 65-75 celcius when watching videos, never expected that!
Pros: Very efficient cooling, not noisy at all, USB powered, cool design
Summary: This notebook cooler is just what I wanted. It is compact & light, yet the materials are excellent. With a metal fan grill housed in matte black plastic face and a glossy plastic rear enclosure, the cooler looks and feels solid. Cooling is high powered and near silent.
Summary: I bought this to keep a dual core Dell Vostro from burning up and to also be able to comfortably keep the computer on my lap. This device may have succeeded in both areas. (only time will tell whether it saves the Dell) I have Real Temp installed so I can watch the temperature. Without the Zalman, just surfing the web the laptop goes over 50C very quickly. Turn the Zalman on and the temps stay in the mid 30's.
Summary: Goes very well with my friend's black matte laptop I bought it for as a gift. The performance is excellent, and his laptop has not overheated once since starting to use the cooler. Zalman makes excellent laptop coolers.
Pros: Stylish, great performance, comfortable
Cons: maybe a bit loud but honestly not a big deal
