PRODUCT COMPOSITION & WALKTHROUGH
The cooler's anodized top surface is perforated with 679 small holes to evenly distribute the airflow evenly throughout the bottom of the notebook. Not only will this aid in cooling the processor, but will help keep everything else cool as well.
The lower edge houses a rubber strip which stops the laptop from sliding off the cooler using use. It also allows for a larger airspace for better airflow under the notebook.
The right side of the cooler houses the control and connection panel where you connect your USB cable and control the power and speed of the fans during operation. The second USB port allows the user to use this cooler without losing a USB connection. Just make sure you don't use that port for any higher power USB components seeing a lot of power will already be drawn for the cooler's fans. Overdrawing power from one port could lead to damage.
When you flip the cooler over, you will notice the two 60mm centrifugal fans. these two fans spin between 1100-1500rpm each are are practically silent. Even with my ear down around the laptop, the noise of the computer's hard drive was louder than anything emitted from the cooler. From the looks of it, I think they might be adding two additional fans in the near future to a next generation model.
