Cooler Master: NotePal U2 Plus

NotePal U2 Plus Chino, California – June 4th, 2013 – Cooler Master Mobile – designer and creator of expertly and elegantly crafted aluminum stands and accessories for mobile products – today unveils the new incarnation of the U2 laptop cooler, the U2 Plus. Much like the U Series that led to its creation, U2 Plus represents an absolute minimalist ideal in design while maintaining elegantly simple functionality. Fully Adjustable Cooling Laptops come in all shapes and sizes. Laptop coolers tend to choose a specific fan layout and hope that it cools most brands effectively. U2 Plus, and the U Series, offers patented quick release fans that make customizing the U2 Plus airflow layout as simple as a squeeze and click. With this simple method users can target hot zones on their laptop and maximize cooling potential. Ergonomic Design Neck, Wrist, and other pains are often common affects of using a laptop at inappropriate angles. U2 Plus helps elevate your laptop to a more appropriate viewing / typing angle to help alleviate these pains. This elevation also has a secondary benefit of making it easier for your laptop to access cool, fresh air. Easy Cable Management Two built-in cable management loops mean no more fiddling about trying to find somewhere to hide that tangled mess of cables that comes from using your laptop with multiple peripherals. Excess slack in lines can be easily wrapped around these loops to give your laptop setup a clean and a professional look. Rea...



Enermax Thermal Conductive Coated CPU cooler

After the successful launch of the ETS-T40 series, Enermax now presents a new line of CPU Coolers in the series, the ETS-T40-Black Twister (ETS-T40-BK) and ETS-T40-White Cluster (ETS-T40-W).
