PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
As promised, the SF-19 has a mammoth footprint with lots of metal mesh on the top surface and rubber inserts at the top corners, top center and bottom center. A molded-in cable channel is incorporated into the rubber pieces along the top of the SF-19 and the device sits at a slight angle for more ergonomic keyboarding.
The backside features rubber feet at similar locations as the top, and a carry handle is molded into the top of the SF-19 just above the two catches that release the fan access panel. The twin 140mm fans are installed in central locations in the panel, but…
…depressing the latch indicated by the red arrow allows the user to move the fans slightly to optimize cooling. As you can see, due to the size of the fan mounts and limited area of the panel, they can’t be moved much. Green arrows in the above photo indicate clear acrylic windows through which the internal lighting effects can shine, creating a peripheral glow on the sides of the cooler.
