Cooler Master Notepal D1Jun 11th, 2009 | By Simon
Cooler Master impressed me with their simple yet elegant D1. By no means is it a flashy notebook cooler with colored LED fans or multiple USB ports requiring a separate AC power supply. They went back to the basics and with a simple tweak of replacing the hard feet with a softer material, I think they would have come up with a huge winner. As it stands, the D1 is still a budget friendly notebook cooler that does the trick of what a 50 dollar cooler would do – keeping your notebook cool.
The Cooler Master D1 dropped my notebook’s temperatures by a significant margin with the fans running. Even without the fans on we saw a small temperature drop across the board. For anyone looking to do some mobile gaming, I would certainly consider getting a notebook cooler. The D1 fits my bill with its simple design and very low price.
- Simple design
- Quick setup
- Big improvement over no cooler
- Softer material for feet would make this cooler flawless
I would like to thank Cooler Master for making this review possible.
