CMStorm SF-17 Gaming Notebook Cooler
Looking at the top of the SF-17 out of the packaging shows you all of my descriptive terms previously were right on point. This is a large and chunky designed with a large area for the air flow in the middle and lots of plastic and rubber used around it.
On the leading edge of the cooler, to either side of the rubber strip with the CMStorm name on it, there is an optional set of feet. These are designed to hold the laptop in place when the angle of this cooler is increased.
There is a wide rubber strip on the left edge to help support the laptops on top of it, but that rubber then angles off and warps the edge as well. In the middle of those two bits if rubber, there is a deep groove added to keep cables tidy. They won't lock into it, but it is deep enough to help keep them in place.
Along the back there is a lot to discuss. The rubber bits at the edge in conjunction with the large chunk in the middle act as cable routing, as well as the larger bit being a carrying handle. If you look between the chunks of rubber, you will notice vents to allow air in the back even when this is in the closed position.
The right side of the cooler is much like the left where it still offers the wire tending groove. Under that is the control and access panel. This is where you will find the fan control dial, four USB 2.0 pass-through ports, mini USB power plug, a 5V DC plug with no cable provided, and the power button for the LED strip.
Under the SF-17, at the top, you get an idea of the handle offered in this design. The rubber that wrapped the sides of the cooler now become the feet, and there is a large square around the 180mm fan to allow the fan to raise with the top section of the cooler and leave enough structure to support it.
With all the talk of being able to adjust the angle, this image shows what I mean. The center section of the pad will rise in the back, leaving the chunky frame flat to support the weight of a heavy gaming laptop.
