For many years now, humans have explored space to the best of our ability. Oxygen and nourishment are, of course, a concern for any passengers onboard a space vessel, but thermal properties are probably the next biggest challenge. A space vessel leaving earth has to be able to withstand both extreme heat and cold. Going through the earth’s atmosphere causes a tremendous amount of heat on the outside of the hull, but once it gets through that, then space is cold. Laptop systems have to deal with a lot of heat stress and being transported back and forth, and sometimes the best thing is a notebook cooler to increase the longevity of the machine.

Cooler Master Notepal U2 Plus


The Cooler Master NotePal U2 Plus features two 80mm fans that can be moved around to focus on a laptop's hot spots. The NotePal U2 Plus uses a solid sandblasted aluminum base to help spread the heat from laptop components. Cooler Master set up the U2 Plus notebook cooler to be a multi-functional peripheral. It can be used as protection for a laptop while transporting, using the included strap, along with the additional cooling. Each of the 80mm fans pushes a steady 31 CFM of air and run at a quiet 21 dBA. The fans are powered by a single USB port and the connector includes a pass through, so you can still use the USB port.
