Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Starting off with what the provided chart covers, we are first given the CLN0043 model number in case searching the Allways Control name does not bring you to the tons of news hits that I saw. It specifies that this notebook cooler is capable of cooling and holding anything within the range of a ten inch to a 17 inch screen. Overall it measures 13.8 inches wide, 11.3 inches deep, and without the feet extended, it stands roughly two inches tall, and weighing in at 820 grams. The cooler is black, and it is made of mostly plastic, but adds an aluminum plate to the top for aesthetics, that offers a black anodized and brushed surface.
Thermaltake describe the pair of 70mm fans that actively cool the notebook on top of this unit, and they go on to give the 1300-2100 RPM rating, the 23.2 dBA of noise level, as well as showing the 17.6CFM of airflow and the 1.22mmH2O of pressure. What they don't discuss is what makes this cooler stand out. Along with a variable speed control dial, you are also given plastic louvers to allow you roughly 25 degrees from center in either direction to move the air flow to where it is needed most. Also since the louvers are so close to the exit of these fans, there is little escape for the air and will deliver more of that low CFM to the bottom of the notebook, and should help raise its efficiency.
This is the first time I can recall that by the time a sample has hit the lab for testing that I still have no idea on the pricing or the delivery date for the masses. All of the news back in July from the release shows that there wasn't a price yet set for this device, and that has yet to change. Going off of logic and a bit of Google-fu, since both other offerings in this series are demanding a price of $25 to $30 depending on the location you find them, I would have to assume that this Allways Control from Thermaltake will release at a similar price point.
Of course with the use of less aluminum in this new design, it may actually release a bit cheaper as well. At this point only time will tell, and I apologize for the lack of information available on this aspect of this cooler.
