Thermaltake Massive SP Notebook Cooler Review

Inside the Massive SP and Setup




After opening up the Massive SP, we can see the same fan that was used in the 142. With only one fan in play, and a tighter surround designed into the plastic, they were even able to raise the static pressure level a bit to help make up for the removal of a fan in lieu of room for speakers.




At the top left corner are the gears for the fan controller that is connected to the PCB power board for both channels. With foam wrapped around it, there is an almost sealed tube housing the 30mm driver to offer more depth to what low-end is produced, and it should get rid of high-end nastiness.




The right side also offers the same sized tube that houses the right channels 30mm driver. The gears here take the Chrome switches moment and flick on the power for the speakers connected to the PCB just below the speaker.




On this PCB, the LED switch is at the top with the audio jack next, and then there are two USB 2.0 ports finishing the right side. On the left there is the trio of wires that power the fan speed controller. Then there is a connector for the fan, power for the audio, and that is followed with two-pin clips for the speakers.




To power the audio, fan, and the LED, the connection from the notebook to the Massive SP should match what is on the right of the cooler. As with the 142 though, the blue LED is nice now, but with a laptop on the cooler, the LEDs are likely not to be seen unless the room is completely dark.




As we let Pandora play through the Lenovo to the Massive SP, we snapped this shot of the pair. There is a bit more room for seventeen inch laptops, and also a lot of wiring that we slid under the cooler, allowing for the need to connect on the left of a notebook if needed too.
