Notebook coolers mostly share a nerdy utilitarian design. There is no reason to criticize since their sole purpose is to dissipate heat more effectively so heavy laptop users wouldn’t end up with a pair of overheated thighs. Now, here’s a cooler whose manufacturer decides to more effort into the aesthetics of the design. Deepcool’s Multi Core X4, compared to other notebook coolers, is a work of art.
Its butterfly wing molding gives the product a truly distinctive look. The surface of the cooler is metal mesh to speed up heat dissipation and under the mesh are 4 individually-controlled fans powered none other than USB. And just like others, the Multi Core X4 raises the back edge of a laptop; this sizable lift by about 8° allows more airflow underneath the laptop as each 1300-rpm 100mm fan draws air from a bottom intake. At the same time, it creates a more ergonomic angle to help prevent neck strain. The Multi Core X4 generates a noise level at 23dB depending on how many fans you turn on and it is suitable for 15.6″ or smaller notebooks.
