Thermaltake Massive SP Notebook Cooler
Without the packaging obscuring the view, we can see the large area of mesh at the top surrounded with a thin edge of plastic visible, but much more of it is under the mesh as the solid frame. There is also a cut-away at the front edge to give better access to the track pads.
The steel mesh is open with large honeycomb shaped holes to allow better airflow from the fan. To add grip to the notebook, rubber pads are applied to the front edge along with the logo and Thermaltake name being applied to the plastic.
Looking at the Massive SP from the left, you see the only angle of this cooler offered, and it is near 15 degrees from horizontal. What is thin in the front widens out at the back, and then curves around a chrome ring and cross bar.
Getting much closer, you can now see the left channel's 30mm driver behind the chrome. The design of the chrome ring also allows it to be used on this side for the on and off switch of the fan, and the further up you go with the turn, more power is added to the fan to attain its maximum speed.
Along the back, it is completely curved from the top edge to where it meets the lower section, and keeps curving around to the bottom. Thermaltake also added their name here inside of an indented area.
The right side of the Massive SP would usually show off the new height with the feet flipped out on most coolers, but with this design, there aren't any adjustments; this is the only and final ride height.
Moving in closer to the SP, we can clearly see the pair of USB 2.0 ports for power, a single 3.5mm audio jack, and an LED power button. Now to power lights and sound, you need to use both ports. If you need only one, the other does free up for use with another device.
The chrome ring on this side also protects the 30mm right channel driver, but this time is also acts as the on and off switch for the external audio. The nice thing here is when someone walks in, a simple twist of the dial mutes the system, instead of clicking away in the sound menu.
That curve we saw at the back is functional, as it opens up the sides of the cooler quite a bit to allow a fair amount of airflow to be drawn in. Where the 140mm fan is installed, the frame is squared off only there to keep the fan unimpeded and free to deliver over 50 CFM of airflow.
To keep the Massive SP in one place on just about any surface, it uses four similar sized rubber feet like this one. In our testing, you had to either lift or push with quite a bit of force to get the Massive SP to move around, it seems to "stick" pretty well.
