Processor manufacturers nowadays are working on making cooler and more efficient processors, especially for mobile applications. However, processors still generate a lot of heat, and in the cramped confines of a laptop chassis, this heat can really build up. This is why companies like Thermaltake make mobile cooling solutions, such as the Massive23 CS Notebook Cooler. This cooler is designed to raise the laptop at an angle to allow air to circulate around the chassis, as well as make the laptop's keyboard more ergonomically attractive. The fact that Thermaltake is marketing this as a "Gaming" Notebook Cooler makes me hope that it will be able to provide me with significant cooling, as well as sleek looks.
The box that the Massive23 comes in is pretty standard. The front sports a picture of the cooler itself, as well as some of the different fan color options. It is somewhat minimalist in that there is not much text, which I find nice, as it really draws my attention to the picture of the product itself. The flip side, however, has quite a bit of information packed into it.
Opening the box up reveals the cooler set in two foam ends for protection during shipping. It is also covered in a light plastic wrap, presumably to keep it from scratches. Underneath the cooler is the manual and power cable used to provide power to the fan.
