PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING




Installation is very straightforward. After plugging the cable into an available USB port and the cooler, one only needs to make sure that the in-line switch is in the “on” position (the green LED will be lit if everything is in order.)



The user can cycle through the various lighting schemes using the silver fan LED control button at the rear. While the lighting effects are nicely executed and add some visual interest to the product, with a large notebook in place, they will be difficult to appreciate. The control button also allows the lighting to be turned off entirely. Rated at 600 RPM, the fan is whisper quiet and barely audible in a silent room. Any ambient noise at all will likely make the fan noise indiscernible.


 

 

 

 

 


Cooling performance was quite good. Using a laser temperature probe, the bottom of the notebook measured 32C during load conditions with the fan off. With the fan on, the temperature dropped and stayed consistent at 26C. A 6C drop in load temperatures is significant and shows that Thermaltake's Massive32 CS can have a dramatic effect of notebook temps. I also found the angle of the cooler to be perfect for typing; much better that trying to use a notebook computer on a flat surface.



Thermaltake also makes a similar cooler, without the bling, for a bit less money.
