NZXT Cryo S Review



To test the NZXT Cryo S notebook cooler, I simply set it on my desk and then placed my laptop on top of it. There are no good experiments that don't have controls, so for this testing, I am using the laptop sitting on the desk as the control. I then let the laptop sit idle while running a temperature monitor to find the temperature of both my CPU and GPU cores. This was repeated on both the cooler and on the desk. To get load temperatures, I chose to run World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, which stresses my laptop quite a bit on both the CPU and GPU, resulting in more thermal energy. Again, this was repeated on the cooler and the desk.

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 NZXT Cryo S is a very good cooler. While it isn't the best, it still puts out very respectable temperatures that any MacBook Pro owner would be happy with.



Lower numbers are better, and, as seen above, the Cryo S does a fairly good job at cooling the laptop.
