You can not help but notice the massive increase in the popularity of notebook computers over the last few years. With advances in technology, and an impressive drop in price, it is not far fetched to find multiple laptops in a single home. NXZT
has taken notice of such a market and launched their Cryo S Notebook cooler, a more affordable version of their award winning Cryo LX
The promotional image above provides a quick look at the NZXT Cryo S aluminum notebook cooler, and over the course of this review we will not only take a closer look, but also investigate whether it can help cool your investment while also providing a more comfortable user experience.
Before taking a closer look at the sample provided for review, let's take a look at some published information regarding the Cryo S, as taken from the official product page
on the NZXT website.
Built with thick, brushed aluminum, the Cryo S houses two adjustable 120mm fans that provide powerful cooling to any notebook up to 15 inches. Its rubber finish lifts the notebook up slightly to remove heat pockets and enhance airflow. The Cryo S can be powered via USB or the included AC adaptor and provides two additional USB ports to give users even more options for media, storage and input devices.
