Cooler Master Notepal U Stand Review – A Laptop Cooler Living Up To Its Name

You have your notebook resting in its standard position on your lap.

Suddenly, you start noticing that familiar tingling feeling when it starts to heat up and you start counting down the minutes before you have to prop the laptop upright, or sit at an awkward angle to give it some breathing room.

Aside from health concerns like developing a rash, or burning your lap, an overheating notebook contributes to the obvious problems of hardware degradation and malfunction.

While newer laptops do not typically suffer from this, overheating symptoms do begin to arise as the daily wear-and-tear starts to kick in.

Of course, there are solutions to remedy this. Removing dust, applying new thermal paste on the CPU, installing a low-profile heatsink, and adding fans are some examples. The problem is that most of these items are not readily available for notebooks and not guaranteed to be compatible, or even fit. Also, not many people have the patience or know-how to open layer upon layer of notebook circuitry. Its like opening a well-packaged box.  Try as you might, you can never get the contents to fit back the way they were.

Indeed, as laptops become larger and as powerful as desktops, more resources are required for them to run properly, with heat dispersion being the most important. Luckily, Cooler Master has just the answer for this predicament, and it is hassle-free!
