Cooler Master Notepal D1Jun 11th, 2009 | By Simon
The Cooler Master D1′s package shows and explains everything you get with the D1. The cover of the box is simple, showing a large front view of the notebook cooler and with the traditional purple trim around the edge. On the backside of the box we have a list of features shown through pictures and the specifications.
There’s nothing to the sides other than the name of the product so we’ll lift the lid and take a look at the inside. The D1 is protected at the edges by two soft Styrofoam pads.
The top of the D1 is made from aluminum and perforated with 1/4″ holes. At the bottom corner of the plate, Cooler Master has etched their company name in. The two rubber pads are 3/8″ wide elevate the notebook from the plate. The insides of the pads are spaced just shy of ten inches apart.
Flipping the D1 over, the bottom is made from hard plastic. The USB cord is neatly tucked away in a crevice and when unraveled fits through the notched edge the D1 sits level on your table.
The USB connector is an extender that plugs into your notebook; it neither adds nor reduces the number of available USB ports.
Returning to the front of the D1, the rubber edges can be peeled away to reveal four screws that hold the top plate to the base of the D1. Removing these four screws gives us complete access to the two 70mm fans Cooler Master uses. I don’t think anyone expected anything other than Cooler Master fans here.
The fans used have model number A7010-20RA-2AN-F1. They are rated for 25 CFM and have a noise rating of 17-21dBA. Here are the rest of the features and specifications for the D1 taken from Cooler Master’s website.
If you ever didn’t need the D1 on your desk, you can stand it vertically on your bookcase.
