CMStorm has been very busy, and in turn, they tend to keep me pretty busy with the vast line up of products that they have in the past, and are currently offering. We have seen some of the best in mechanical keyboard offerings, cases, mice, padz, and even an occasional oddity like the Skorpion mouse wire retention device. What I like about most of these CMStorm products is that they tend to all stick to a similar theme, so no matter if you bought a keyboard from them two or three years ago, their mice and other accompanying offerings will still match the rest of the kit you already own. This isn't always true with other manufacturers; they just expect you to keep spending to get matching components.
So, where is CMStorm taking us today? Well, they have delivered us a new notebook cooler. If you follow my reviews, or have done so for some amount of time, you may remember when we took a look at the SF-19 that coincided with the release of a specific notebook from Dell that it was designed and engineered to be used with. This time around I have caught no word of any specially released products that were designed to go with this new model, but it does get quite a bit of its DNA from the SF-19. And just like that design, CMStorm is pushing the bounds of what a truly ergonomic notebook cooler should offer.
This time around we are again dealing with a rather bulky device with thick components, harsh lines, and chunky bits of rubber that make up most of the styling of the newest SF-17 gaming notebook cooler. As we get up close and personal with this SF-17, its genealogy can easily be traced back to the original design, but there are a couple of tweaks done here and there that to me makes this edition to the SF series of coolers the best overall offering that CMStorm has put together thus far.
For those of you looking for a serious cooler that won't be dwarfed by the notebook that sits atop it, like a bit of LED lighting, and require a notebook cooler with more ergonomic adjustment options than I have seen from any other maker, this new SF-17 may just be the cooler needed to fill those shoes. Stick around as we cover the specifications and packaging, so we can then show you this new cooler and point out all the things that make this a much better solution than many of the others we have looked at previously.
