Cryo X60 Detailed Features

This notebook cooler also has a 4 port Usb 2.0 hub built in which will provide 3 additional Usb ports since one is used to connect the hub to the laptop. There is a power button on the side with a 5 speed fan controller and when the cooler is plugged in automatically turns on to full speed.


The very back panel shown here is plastic that blends in well with the aluminum and the power indicator is a white led. A wise decision by NZXT to choose plastic for the back and and the base because sharp aluminum corners could easily scratch and poke holes in surfaces.


The base is all black plastic, the fan draws air through these vents on the bottom. Though the fans are very quiet the sound of air rushing through these vents sound similar to a vacuum cleaner powerfully sucking up air, but when the fans are near a flat surface during normal use the sound is flattened out and cannot be heard.


Next the Usb ports is the built in fan controller, it has 5 settings for the fan speeds and a power button. I can see when running on battery power only it would be wise to run the cooler on the lowest setting to still have some cooling action while using the least amount of power possible.


Comes with usb and AC power adapter cords. Plus another Usb cord needed to operate the built in Usb hub feature on the cooler.

I'm sure this is a great accessory. However, you repeatedly stress how hot all laptops get. This simply isn't true. My current laptop does not get hot, even after 6 or 7 hours of sitting on my lap. You shouldn't open a review with a blatant fallacy.

That's not how I read it. More of a loose opening statement to which most readers can relate. If your laptop does not get hot then you won't need to look at laptop cooler reviews.

I like it but for $50+ bucks I think it should have had at least two fast USB 3.0 ports. The trend is away from the much slower USB 2.0 so in order to get the best longevity out of this product it really needed to have a future forward feature. My new Alienware laptop has 3 USB ports (1 x 2.0 & 2 x 3.0. It gets my skin simmering very quickly sitting on my lap while playing Skyrim and Crysis 2, so I use a TV dinner folding table. But I'm looking for a laptop cooler to make my couch dwelling more comfortable. This advert caught my eye, however, I'll keep looking. Btw, my external hard drive is USB 3.0 as is my 64 GB USB flash drive.
