With each new processor architecture we tend to see more performance with less voltage, which in turn equals less heat… or so you would think. Sure, temperatures are nowhere near the raging infernos that they used to be (cough-Netburst-cough), but things can still get roasty toasty when all of that horsepower is crammed into the confines of a notebook chassis.
Here to keep things frosty is the Allways Control Notebook Cooler from Taiwanese juggernaut, Thermaltake. Capable of handling notebooks up to 17″, this cooler features two 70mm fans that can be manually adjusted so that the air is sent in the direction of the hottest areas. The built in fan controller means that users can choose the perfect balance between sound versus performance as the fans spin anywhere from 1300-2100 RPM in order to push a maximum of 17.6 CFM of air while making 23.2 dBA worth of noise.
To sweeten the deal, Thermaltake has made this cooler completely USB powered, but provides four USB 2.0 ports on the side, so that even though you’re losing one to power it, you gain three back. From some of the product shots, it seems that you could power it with an AC adaptor as well. If looks are an issue, the cooler also features a brushed aluminum face plate. Classy.
The press release didn’t state when it would be available or how much it is expected to retail for. There’s also no sign of it at the larger online retailers, so keep your eyes peeled. Oh, and in case anybody is wondering, no, I did not misspell the name of the cooler. i spel gud n e way!
