ZALMAN ZM-NC3000U NOTEBOOK COOLER INTRODUCTION
Just like desktop PC's, laptops can get pretty warm during use. With a desktop PC it's easy to install a better heatsink or more fans to keep temperatures down, but your options are a bit more limited when it comes to cooling down a laptop.
Zalman is well known for their desktop CPU coolers, but they also offer a complete line of products for laptop cooling. One such cooler is the ZM-C3000U and it features a 220mm fan with speed controller, aluminum construction, and is large enough to fit up to 17” laptops. Furthermore, this product is also a stand for providing improved ergonomics during those long typing sessions. But how effective is the cooling and does it make this product worth your hard earned money? Let's check it out in further detail.
