SF-17 Gaming Notebook Cooler Continued
The SF-17 uses a steel bar that runs the entire width of the cooler to be set into one of the three slots here. With its "flat" position as the first, these three options make all four of the angles you can use with this cooler.
Just to give the SF-17 some perspective, this is a Lenovo with a 15-inch screen. The cooler under it is still poking out around the sides, but as you get a larger screen the body also increases, and less of the cooler will be visible then.
Even though most coolers I use for the reviews do not offer this sort of ergonomic usage of the laptop, I really have missed it. If for only one reason you should buy this cooler, this is a huge check mark in the win column for its purchase.
To supply power to the SF-17, you need to take the standard USB 2.0 end of the cable and plug it into the laptop. The smaller Mini-USB end plugs into the cooler and supplies both the light and the 180mm fan with power.
Along the front edge of the SF-17, they have used a pair of LED lights, one at each end of an acrylic tube, to give it this red glow that not only looks good, but adds a flood of light to the workspace in front of the cooler.
From a more typical viewing angle, much of the direct view of the bar of light is diminished. When you increase the angle more and more, the hard edge above the light will actually roll over it to leave more ambient lighting, rather than attractiveness from the actual shape and placement of the light within the design of the cooler.
