When most nerds and geeks think of Cooler Master we think of heatsinks. At least I do. But they are much more than that. Cooler Master has what seems like one of everything on their shelves. I have used their cases and owned more than a few of their heatsinks, and I’ve had the pleasure of using a pair of their headphones on occasion. I would love to try out a pair of their new ones, too. But this is the first chance I’ve had to experience one of their laptop cooling pads.

I have an older laptop that I use for my writing. It’s an Inspiron E1505 from way back in the day. The only reason I haven’t upgraded to something better is because it hasn’t died on me yet. It has been dependable and I have yet to lose a single chunk of data due to hardware failure. And with all the other computers around my house that require constant upgrades for testing purposes, it’s nice to have one that I don’t have to screw with. I write on it, and that’s it. Okay, so I recently watched the entire Lord of the Rings series on it. Sue me. The only issue is that no matter what it’s being used for, it gets hot.
