CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force Review

» Discuss this article (6)


The CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force was tested in the same manner 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: Beyond the Sword, which stresses the hardware of my Macbook Pro, generating heat. Again, 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.

Testing Setup:

  • Apple MacBook Pro 15" Generation 3
  • 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo
  • nVidia GeForce 8600M
  • 120GB SATA Hard Drive (5400 RPM)
  • AirPort Extreme 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n
  • 8x Slot Loading Super Drive


Comparison Coolers:


The results below show that the SF-19 Strike Force did an excellent job moving additional air around my MacBook Pro.



Lower numbers are better.

As the graphs show, the SF-19 Strike Force was one of the best coolers I've tested in terms of cooling ability!
