Specifications, Availability and Pricing
On NZXT's site and in the email correspondence there wasn't anything really available as far as actual specifications to make a chart about. Instead there is a full list of features that cover most of the dimensions, fan sizes, and options around the Cryo LX. This extruded aluminum frame is said to be a full 3mm thick even though my measurement put the rear section at 2.6mm and the front part at 2.3mm thick. Moving on, this aluminum frame then takes on a brushed finish and has some soft rubber trim added for design as well as secure footing for the notebook. At this point it can be sold as the silver version. Take the same frame and add an anodizing process, and they offer a black version too.
The full dimensions of the Cryo LX are 16.6" wide, and 11.6" front to back. This frame is also raised in the front a bit; 1" off the table to be exact. The rear of the cooler leaves your laptop 2.5" above the table to give you an ergonomic angle while still leaving room for the cooling system and power and USB connectivity. To power the three, fully controllable, 120mm fans, you have options to power this from the wall, or with a provided cable use a USB port from the notebook to power the unit. On the back you will find connectivity for either of the power options along with five USB ports. One of these ports needs to be used as a transfer cable from the cooler to the laptop, while the other four can be used for any sort of USB input device you want to attach to your 15" or 17" notebook.
Going through the usual steps to locate the product in question, I found that the Cryo LX is available almost everywhere. Google put out a ton of various retailers and e-tailers that show stock of this cooler. Depending on where you finally decide to buy one, prices are currently ranging from just under $54 USD prior to shipping, while others are charging much closer to the $70 range. It seems the market is split about half and half; either it's under $60 or over by near $10 everywhere. Right now The silver version is listing for $69.99 at Newegg.com and there is about $8 in shipping charges. The black version is listing currently cheaper with Newegg.com asking $67.99 and it only requires $1.99 to ship. Based on this alone, I advise the black one currently, but let's get a closer look at it, get some testing and typing time on it and see what I think when I get done.
