The Thermaltake Massive23 CS CLN0008 is one of my favorite coolers. It combines style and substance into one package. Looking at the cooler for the first time, the first thing you will probably notice is the fan – it’s huge! It comes in at 23 cm (hence the 23 in Massive23) or about 9 inches in diameter. It has 13 clear blades and runs at a somewhat slow speed due to its size – but trust me, this thing does an amazing job of cooling your laptop down! The actual case itself is at a nice angle for desk work , and at the bottom of the cooler is a rubber strip that stops your laptop from slipping forward. It makes for a very comfortable place to rest your hands while typing. I will have to say that this particular cooler is more suited for desk work – it is fairly large making it hard to carry around and the case has no bottom so it is difficult to position it on your lap. This makes it perfect for gaming, watching movies, any deskwork and desktop replacement laptops.
This cooler will easily fit laptops from 10” to 17” (standard or wide screen), making it a great solution for laptops of all sizes. A very neat feature of this cooler is the LED lights on the fan blades that provide a dazzling light show every time the fan starts up. There is an easy to locate button on the back of the cooler that allows you to switch between the 6 different light modes – blue, red, green, light cycle, four light rotation and no lights. The lights themselves look very cool and bounce off the blades creating a nice effect. The only problem is once your laptop is on the cooler you can barely see the lights, especially if you have a large laptop.
The cooler runs off of USB power and has miniscule power consumption. The Massive23 is a monster when it comes to cooling down my laptop – easily one of the best I’ve tried. The giant fan is very quiet (mainly because of the low speed) but pushes out huge volumes of cold air. In fact, the fan is so quiet I found myself lifting up my notebook several times during a gaming session to check and make sure the fan was on! This thing did such a good job of chilling my laptop that my laptop’s internal fans never even had to turn on – the cooler did all the work necessary. It was so efficient that the aluminum casing of the cooler was cold to the touch, even while my notebook was working away!
The Thermaltake Massive23 CS gets the job done on all fronts – it is a cooling powerhouse with styles thanks to the clean design and LED lights. It is a great no fuss cooler that does exactly what it is intended to do. If you would like to read more reviews or purchase this cooler, please check out the product’s page of Amazon.com.
