Everyone that has a laptop computer knows how hot it can be, especially if you are using it on your lap. Cooler Master has an all-aluminum laptop cooler, called NotePal, to cool down your machine. Let’s take a look at this laptop cooler.
NotePal can be found in two versions: for laptops using 4:3 displays and for laptops using 16:9 (widescreen) displays, and both can be found in two colors: silver or black. Cooler Master internal names are quite complex: R9-NBC-ADAS is the NotePal for 4:3-display laptops in silver, while R9-NBC-ADAK is the same product in black; and R9-NBC-AWBS is the silver version of NotePal for 16:9-display laptops, while R9-NBC-AWBK is the same product in black. We took a look at R9-NBC-ADAS model, i.e., for conventional laptops in silver.
As we mentioned, the material used is aluminum, which helps a lot the heat dissipation by itself. NotePal uses two or three fans, depending on the model (4:3-display or 16:9-display, respectively). The fans are powered through the USB port. Since this device “kills” one of the laptop’s USB port, it provides one extra USB port, so in reality you won’t lose your USB port.
