Thermaltake Massive SP Notebook Cooler Review

Thermaltake tries its hand at notebook cooling and external speakers. The Massive SP is now our second entry in this market. Let's take a look.

Specifications, Availability and Pricing

From what the chart shows us, the Massive SP is also found by the model number of CL-N003-PL14BL-A, and is designed to fit notebooks from ten inch to seventeen inch models. The cooler is 387mm wide, is 282mm from front to back, and stands 57mm in height at the back. So this is slightly wider, much deeper, and stands over twice as tall as the Massive 14 Squared we just looked at. All told, with all components inside, the plastic frame, the fan, and the steel mesh panel, the Massive SP weighs in at just under a kilogram. As for how it looks: it is nice. All black as far as the frame and mesh are concerned, has slick chromed additions as functional switches around the speakers, and when powered the 140mm fan will illuminate with blue LEDs if the switch is on to allow it.

 

Speaking of the fan included in this notebook cooler, they have supplied the Massive SP with one of the fans that we saw in the 14 Squared, so we know airflow should not be an issue. With specifications of a typical chassis fan these days, there will be plenty of air going to the devices with 54.11 CFM of flow. Drawing only 0.27 Amps at 5 Volts, offering 1300 RPM, this fan is capable of a static pressure level of 1.37 mmH2O. The fan can be turned off all together, and just like its slightly smaller brother, it also uses a dial speed control to vary the speed to a desired level.

 

Locating one of the Massive SP coolers is a bit more of a challenge. I see plenty of news articles, and I would expect these to be filling shelves any day now. What we could get for pricing is delivered from e-Bay in two listings. One of them is a tough higher and is listed over $40 with five showing as new and available. The other listing is the AeroCool store listing where they are asking $37.50.

 

Funny enough, this is the same price point as the M6, and where they tried to bury the audio quality in a flashy design, Thermaltake's cooler is more streamlined in design; so the audio has to be better... doesn't it? As just a cooler, I think the pricing is a tad high to win us over with performance, but if the audio is good, this Massive SP is well worth the investment.
