Game Forces brengt ons een roundup van een aantal producten uit het coolers assortiment van 3DCool, zoals de bekende Super Duper Slot Fan en de Ultra Thin Exhauster. Hieronder een stukkie over de 3DCool Monitor Cooler, die schijnbaar een goede taak heeft aan het koel houden van bv. je 19 inch:
One would hope for a more convenient form of powering the Monitor Cooler, but you need to open up your case and fill in the opening for an ISA or PCI card with a piece of metal that has a 4-pin power cable plug within it. The inner side plugs into a cable from your power supply, and the outer side connects to the cord from the Monitor Cooler. Thankfully, it's several feet long, and in our case, it was able to reach from the monitor on one side of a desk, to the tower on the floor by the opposite side of the desk.
Benchmarking the performance of this fan is difficult, but even after hours and hours of leaving the screensaver off and disabling power saving modes, the top of our screen was as cool as the keyboard and mouse. This was a shock -- in contrast to the seemingly normal TV dinner-like temperates previously felt. How does it stay on top of your monitor? Even if you have a steeply slanted monitor, the Monitor Cooler stays in place via a small pin that seats itself into the air vents which make their home on top of 99% of PC screens.
