Cryo S Performance and Conclusion

Introduction:

Today we have a look at the second notebook cooler released by NZXT.  This company has been traditionally known for its cases and it was the Lexa that really put NZXT on the map.  They have expanded their product line and as more consumers make the move to laptops, they have come along side and offered cooling products for these machines.  Let's face it, not everyone wants a ThinkPad T-series and many other laptops from companies like Dell, Toshiba and Acer tend to have cooling issues.  The problem is that users today expect the same performance from their portable machines as they get from their desktop machines.  This means faster processors, faster hard drives and more heat.  This is where a product like the Cryo S comes in and if you've got a 15.4" unit or smaller, this little stand could be a nice addition to your desk.  We looked at the Cryo LX in the past and both have a similar design, but the LX could handle even larger laptops.  The Cryo S is for these smaller units.

Cryo S - First Look:

When NZXT contacted us to see if we wanted to follow up with the Cryo S, I said that we'd be happy to.  When I receive notice that I'm receiving a new product, I try not to find out too much about the product before it arrives so I can have an unbiased first impression.  I didn't know if this product was bigger, smaller or louder than the previous model.  I was pleased to see the slightly smaller form factor and that this unit is designed for laptops that you are willing to pack around.  The Cryo LX was for 15" to 19" laptops.  While that is certainly impressive, many users don't need a cooler near that large.

If you remember, the Cryo LX has space for three 12cm fans on the bottom side, while the Cryo S has room for two fans; plus a little room to spare.  On the next page we'll take a closer look at the Cryo S as well as cover the features and specifications.
