NZXT Cryo LX Notebook Cooler
January 20, 2008

The Basics:

The first set of images shows the first view you get of the NZXT Cryo LX once removed from the box. My initial thoughts were "that isn't going to be deep enough", and then I realized it was hinged. The cooler folds up to make it smaller and (slightly) more manageable for storage or transportation.

The top surface is shown in the below left image, where an array of slots can be see above some perforated mesh. Except for two wedges of slip resistant rubber designed to keep your notebook computer in place, this surface is constructed of Aluminum. Knowing that there are three 120mm fans inside the Cryo LX has me wondering if there shouldn't be a bit more open area for air to get through.

The above right image takes a look at the back side of the cooler, where a well integrated 4-port USB hub can be found. There is one port to connect to the notebook computer, a DC power connection, and then the four USB ports capable of powering external drives and just about any other typical USB connected components.


The next set of images shows the ends of the Cryo LX, still folded up. In these views we see a perforated metal box mounted to the underside of the cooler's top surface that houses the 120mm fans. The right side of the cooler features a small dial which is used to adjust the speed of the fans. While you can adjust the speed from low to high with this dial, you can not turn the fans off. You must unplug the USB cables in order to turn the fans off completely.

There is nothing holding the Cryo LX in its compact state, so just lift it up and it starts to unfold. This is just fine except for when you are trying to move your computer while on top of the cooler, and it hinges back down. Since yours hands are now full, you need to put the notebook back down in such a way that the cooler's front edge touches first, and you ease your way into a smooth landing to get it to hinge open fully without dropping your computer.
