My only complaint is that when I put my laptop in sleep (which I do constantly) I have to unplug the cooler because it won't automatically shut off. However, the reviews warned me of this so I knew what to expect. By now I'm used to unplugging it and don't give it much thought. [When some laptops go to sleep they cut off power to USB devices, which causes the cooler to turn off/on with the laptop.]
Now for the benchmark test. I noticed a review that tried to down-play the cooling capabilities of this cooler. Because of this I performed my own test.
Hardware Used During Testing
HPdv7 Laptop 17.3"
Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T6400 @ 2.00GHz
Quanta 3624 (CPU)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 (HP)
4 GB RAM
*To capture temperature I used HWMonitor from CPUID.
I performed six tests and recorded the GPU (Video Card) and CPU (Processor) during each test. Each test was performed in the game Left 4 Dead 2 (exact same level) on a resolution of 1600x900 and at Maximum graphics (including max Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering). After each test I waited for the laptop to reach the control temperature of:
GPU: 53 Degrees Celsius
CPU: 60 Degrees Celsius
before proceeding to the next test.Read more ›
I used this bad boy right out of the box plugging it into the back of my Toshiba Qosmio F55-Q04. I love the Toshiba, but the clocking of it has the internal fan running full blast 99% of the time. The heat out put coming out of the back of the unit could pop corn.
So, plugging this laptop cooler into it and sitting it on my lap I found it rested well with the one big fan between my legs. I set the fan speed to low and began loading programs and downloading software while site surfing and chatting as well as playing some games.
Only one time did the Toshiba's fan even kick in...and then only for a second. I cannot recomend this enough.
It would be perfect if it had USB Port hub, perhaps the folks at Antec will take this into consideration on their future productions.
It has an illuminated LED light(s) around the fan which appear cool. That can also be turned off and on.
Pros: Packaged nicely. Sturdy construction. Super quiet fan. Comfortable in lap.
Con: No USB port hub. So if you do not have the extra port to plug this in, you will be limited.
I received the Antec Unbeatable Notebook Cooler 200 today, and as intended, I first ran an analysis of its efficiency. One will notice that there are no claims by the manufacturers, whatsoever, as what to expect in heat reduction. I was hoping for at least a 15-20 degree drop.
All these manufacturers seem to get away with calling these "coolers." None that I know of have any cooling capability ... it's a fan, and a fan only moves air. An air conditioner cools, but not a fan. A fan can make our bodies feel cool, but that's because our bodies have our own internal air conditioners ... perspiration.
I see a lot of satisfied customers with positives reviews, but no where did I see results of any testing.
HARDWARE USED IN TESTING
MacBook Pro 17" (July 09)
4 GB memory
500 GB 7200 RPM drive
I also utilized iStat Server, which sends very detailed internal information to an iPhone or iPod Touch.
CONSISTENT HEAT LEVEL
I pushed the processor to the max, as well as the drive, by upscaling two movies, simultaneously, in QuickTime, while another movie played in Quicktime on a second display, a 42'' HDTV plugged into the MacBook Pro. This MacBook Pro has two graphics cards, one for regular use, and a second, high-performance one. I used the high-performance one due to the second display ... it also increases performance ... and heat.
TEST PARAMETERS SUMMARY
*OAK TABLE, 20-25 min ... The MacBook Pro laid flat on the oak table I use. I monitored the internals.
*ANTEC 200 w/FAN on HIGH, 30-40 min ... I slipped the Antec Notebook 'Fan' underneath my MacBook Pro, plugged in the USB, and switched the fan to high (low was never tested).Read more ›
