Neoseeker heeft een review gemaakt van de 3D COOL Laptop Cooler, een handig coolertje wat je in een PCMCIA slot kan stoppen om te zorgen dat je CPU geen stabiliteits problemen krijgt door (te veel) hitte :
Now some may question the need for a laptop cooler, since it is nigh impossible to overclock the mobile CPU, and there really aren't any expansion cards to install that might add extra heat to the laptop. The fact of the matter is that laptops run HOT. There are several reasons for this: the CPU and mainboard components, the confined space of the laptop's components, the compact hard drive, and the batteries. Each of these factors affect both the external and internal heat of the portable computer, which results in three things: discomfort for the user (because his lap is being seared by the heated base of the unit, or because the wrist rest area is heating up and getting at the hands), possible instability of the system leading to lockups or crashes, and increased potential for failure of the hard drive.
[...] If you are like us, and are concerned about the heat generated by your notebook - especially if that heat affects your system stability, then this is definitely something you want to pick up. In our case, the laptop was a heat demon without any extra cooling, and this was an inconvenience as well as an actual stability concern. The Laptop Cooler didn't perform any miracles, but it did tone down the heat noticeably. It couldn't keep the entire laptop cool, but with the superheated batteries that power modern notebooks, this was inevitable.
