Gaming laptops have really started asserting themselves in the gaming community. In the past laptops limited CPU capabilities and graphics support made them an overly expensive luxury that few wanted to even bother with. Now that we are starting to see i7 and i5’s and more powerful GPU’s making their way to the mobile market gaming laptops have leaped in popularity. The one issue with all of this new beefier technology going into laptops is that there is not a lot of room for good cooling and for some of the gaming laptops that are sporting 18.5 inch + screens, your standard laptop cooler just doesn’t step up to save the day. Cooler Master saw the need and filled it. The new CM Storm SF-19 is a beautiful piece of engineering in about as portable a package as a 19 inch laptop cooler can be. Let’s check it out more in depth and see if it is right for your mobile powerhouse:

Overall Cooler Master did it right; for a first attempt at a veritable monster of a laptop cooler they did a fantastic job of packing all of the features gamers wanted, and didn’t know they wanted. This Cooler is the most customizable laptop cooler I have ever seen to date and I am more than just a little impressed but its performance. Cooler Master has officially solidified themselves as THE gaming laptop manufacturer and other competing companies are really going to have to step it up if they want to catch up.
Would I recommend this product? Yes, if you spent thousands on a gaming laptop that is 19 inches and you are not running this cooler you need to be slapped. The extra $80 can improve the life of your laptop by literally years. If you don’t have one, get one!
