Performance Analysis :
So before I get into any numbers, I just wanted to add that the fan used are 2 100mm fans at 1200rpm. The fans don’t move a lot of air, but they are very silence. They are not completely inaudible, you can hear a slight hum in a quiet environment. You will probably not hear it over you laptop’s in built fan, so that’s a good thing.
So for testing, I ran the system at 100% CPU load for 15 minutes and took the peak temperature reading. I tested it with my not so high end laptop in 3 different positions, first the laptop without any cooler, next the with the cooler but in completely closed position and lastly in the upright position (as in the picture above) to see if it makes any difference.
So here are the results :
As you can see above, the fans really do help and we managed to shave off almost 6C. By keeping the laptop in the upright position, we gained another 2 degrees !
