    So if been using a laptop cooler from Aventek a couple of months and right now I´m pretty content with it. During normal browsing activities the core temps are around 35 °C , during some heavy gaming sessions it goes up to 60-65 degrees
    I know that there are many different brands for coolers out there, so if anyone of you have some experiences with other devices I´d love to hear them
    Especially if you´ve ever tried a Cooler master, as they seem to be the "premium" variants of laptop coolers

    I use a Cooler Master X3 for my Blade 14. But I'm wondering why you need a cooler for those kind of temperatures. My Blade often hits 95°C (without throttling//cooler) when playing AAA games.

    Hi j.i

    Pretty big fan of notebook coolers myself. Without one, my 7 year old HP laptop immediately overheats and shuts down when watching any type of video (LOL).

    I have owned the "premium" variants of laptop coolers you have mentioned, including:

    Cooler Master U3 Plus

    Cooler Master SF-15

    Cooler Master SF-17
    And let me tell you...they are anything but "premium." The build quality is always average to below-average and the circuitry, including the USB hubs, breaks easily. Fans are also cheap as hell. To be honest with you, I don't think think there's a fan-powered notebook cooler out there that actually sports high quality materials and components...they're more of a market afterthought right now.

    With that said, I like the U3 plus because you can move the fans and target your laptop's vents and hotspots. I actually modded mine, removed all 3 slow worthless fans and put in 6 nice fans (Noctua and BitFenix). The ones that come with it are crappy shallow 10mm thick fans that can't even blow a napkin away...

    Btw, where are you from? Your apostrophes " ' " are weird looking!

    Im using one to extend my laptops life span, because many future problems are caused my high temperatures. Also I doubt that these temperatures will look as good when it's summer^^

    Too bad, I thought they would be kind of better ones because they look so impressiv on the pictures ^^
    I´m from Austria, often i tend to use the false apostrophes because they are easier to reach on my keyboard layout

    Actually, those are my temperatures from the summer. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_: Otherwise, I understand what you mean. I recommend the CoolerMaster NotePal X3. Oh, and like @Raijin said, there is NOTHING premium about it. No cooler I've seen feels or looks like it is made out of quality materials. In fact, I'm considering using a DIY solution and changing the fan on my X3 myself.

    I've used the Cooler Master Notepal for the last 5 years and it still works like the day I got it. Although, it was only $19.99 back then.

    My best cooler is brought the cheapest from a bangala shop.

    Hello fellow Notepal U-series Plus user. Don't you hate the original fans that come with it? I thought they were so weak so I took the fans out of the 'receptacles' and put in my own Noctua Redux

    Use two books one on each sides, a fan in your room and aim it towards the gap. That is the cheapest method.

    I thought about using stronger fans myself, however I fear they might blow too much dust into my filters...

    sounds interesting, I could try one additional to my cooling pad

    I didn't really have any issues with my laptop using the original fans, but those Noctua fans may very well be better. Those vacuum coolers seem interesting tho!

    I think it would depend on the laptop and the way it exhausts heat. I feel like it would be kind of useless on my Blade 14. What do you think?

    On the blade it really seems useless, a normal cooling pad might be the better option

    The thing is, my surface pro get's really hot so I would have to log off for an hour or something. Are there ways to solve this problem?

    My favorite laptop cooler, hands down, is the CM Storm SF-19. dual 135mm fans, RGB lighting, 4 USB hubs. Only a couple problems with it. The fans can be quite loud, and the micro USB port isn't the strongest in the world. Otherwise 8/10 for cooling and performance. I notice they have a V2, so maybe that solved all of the issues of it's predecessor.
