Deepcool N8 ReviewPropane - November 18, 2010

The Deepcool N8 was tested in the same way as all the other coolers I have tested (listed below and also compared in the graphs). I used it in conjunction with my Macbook Pro while I let the laptop run in an idle state while running a temperature monitoring application (iStat Pro). This allowed me to get both my CPU and GPU temperatures. I then repeated the test with the cooler and with the laptop straight on my desk. To get load temperatures, I chose to run Civilization IV, which puts my Macbook Pro's hardware under a good deal of stress, generating heat. This was repeated on the cooler and on the desk. The results from this testing will be specific to a Macbook Pro, but other laptops with rear vents should provide similar results.

The results below show that while the Deepcool N8 didn't provide the coolest temperatures, it did provide very acceptable temperatures.
Lower numbers are better.
As the graphs show, the Deepcool N8's cooling ability is pretty much par for the course.
