The CM Storm SF-19 Strike Force is one of the best laptop coolers that I have reviewed. While it isn't the most mobile, it still makes an effort to be able to be totted around to LAN parties or wherever by way of a handle in the rubber edging. Also, the impressively large cooling surface and the replaceable fans really allow you to get the best cooling for your laptop while still letting you customize the fans to make the SF-19 your own. One thing I always look for when reviewing a laptop cooler is a USB hub. This is a great feature to have and the SF-19 is one of the few coolers I have reviewed that includes one. Not to mention that it's the first cooler that I have reviewed with a USB 3.0 hub. This will allow you to keep using the hub for the foreseeable future. Finally, by using the SF-19 you'll earn the thanks of your hands since the tilt that it puts your laptop at helps ergonomically. Overall, the SF-19 Strike Force is one of the best laptop coolers that I have reviewed and I would recommend it to anyone who wants the best performance for their system.
