4 out of 5 eggsSolid laptop cooling pad for the price

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: The finish is nice and the rubber cord holders on the back come in handy. The sound from the fans is not very noticeable but it does a decent job at keeping my graphics card cool when used in conjunction with my laptop's built-in cooler. The ability to relocate the fans is probably the best feature. I can place the fans directly where I want so I know the maximum amount of airflow is directly over the hottest areas of my laptop. Overall, this is a good laptop cooling pad for the price.

Cons: I have a rather heavy MSi GT70 sitting on top of this cooling pad and it tends to slide downward after a few minutes. I have to reposition it time and time again. However, one could use the optional strap to hold it down if you use an external keyboard like I do.

The other con is that the USB connector is rather bulky and get in the way if you try to connect another USB thumb drive next to an adjacent slot.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Fits 17.3 inch laptop and the three fans keeps it cool.

Cons: I'm giving this 1 egg because of the Slippery surface, Laptop just slides right off of it, only way to fit this was to use something to level off the stand to a normal position.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Gaming Cooling Pad

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Replaced all of the existing cooling pads I had prior to this model. Being able to place where you need your cooling fans is very helpful. Even on max speed, the fans are not loud, but you can tell they are on. Overall a great product.

Cons: See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: This product is listed for 19” laptops. That is not by screen sizes. If you are using a MSI or Dell 18.4 screen size laptop, verify your corner to corner measurement of the base.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat piece of cooling

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Adjustable position fans.

Cons: Fans only blow one way need to be able to turn fans over and still attach to rack. My computer pulls air in from bottom and blows it out the sides. Fans attach so that the pull air from the bottom and exhaust it out.

Other Thoughts: Place feet on fans so they can be attached to rack in both directions.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for Lenovo Y510P

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: 1: Strong
2: Lightweight
3: Good air flow from the 3 fans
4: Ability to move fans for whatever laptop you choose
5: USB splitter-ish thing that allows you to power the fans and run whatever you were previously
6: Durable, went through snow/rain, intense laptop heat, and dropping and came through just fine
7: Longevity (so far). Have had it 3 months, no problems.
8: Angle is good.

Cons: 1: Can't choose to run the fans using a wall socket, have to use USB
2: Clip that holds USB power cable is a little cheap and doesn't hold on fantastic.
3: Laptop tends to slip a little if you rest your hands on the laptop. Not a big deal, can push it up every couple hours no problem
4: Non-adjustable height (I would much rather have this than a poorly built adjustable height mechanism that might fail, I'm just noting this)

Other Thoughts: Also fits great if you have a Lenovo Y510P. The fans can be adjusted to perfectly go right over the intake for the laptop, and the size is just right.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for any big laptop

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Excellent size, lightweight, the rubber parts hold my laptop very well.
Lower my temps about -5°C on idle, and about -10°C under heavy load.
Best laptop cooler I every had.

Cons: The aluminium could be a bit thicker.
The fans should be a bit more powerful.
Its kinda tricky to put the fans firmly inside the stand.
The fan control is horrible, a dial isn't the best solution. In my case I cant put the dial all to the top, I need to put the dial at 95% or otherwise I end up at the lowest speed.

Other Thoughts: Im using a Dell Precision 6500m, with a mild OC on the CPU and GPU.

One fan under the CPU intake, the other 2 are half under the laptop and half outside, between the CPU and the GPU vent. That's the hottest spot on my laptop. The pipes are very near the case of the laptop and my case is made of aluminum. I don't think the GPU intake need a fan for itself.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Tool-less fan attachment
Fan set separate from base

Cons: Slippery surface

Other Thoughts: The fan s are tool-less, which means you can move them around the base at ease. The base is a bit large for my 15 inch, so the rubber pads are not where my laptop rubber pads are. The surface not covered by rubber is a very slippery smooth metal, making my laptop slide around a bit. Easily fixed by setting my laptop in the corner of the base instead of the center.

3 out of 5 eggsLove the Product, but not the Warrany

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Product is solidly built, well designed, quiet, and keeps my Dell Precision Mobile Workstation cooler. And at a great price.

Cons: Unfortunately, Cooler Master, the manufacturer, is having warehouse issues, and can't honor the warranty in a timely manner, in my case for fans that are stuck on low setting. Apparently the knob adjustment has failed.

Other Thoughts: Even w/ the warranty, I love the product, hence I gave it a three. Would have given it a five if the warranty issue hadn't occurred.

3 out of 5 eggsNot terrible, but not what was expected.

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS – Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 3 Moveable High Performance Fans – Black

Pros: Before I start, some system specs:

Toshiba Qosmio x875
3gb Nvidia GeForce GTX 670M
16 GB Ram

-Sturdy metal base
-Movable fans
-Adjustable speed
-Design is simple yet efficient

As advertised, it does allow you to move the fans where you need them most which I feel is its best feature. Though it's simple, I think the simplicity of the design is one of it's high points.

The Carrying Case "Feature" of this is great if you are packing all of this into a bag or another, larger carrying case, as you can simply slide your computer into slot on the pad and save yourself the room.

Cons: -"High performance" fans, aren't.
-Speed control dial housing doesn't stay put.
-Fans can be easily broken in transport.
-Carrying Case is scarier that it is helpful.
-Holes for ventilation and securing the fans on the pad end right before where I really need them (Heat exhaust and vid car are on the extreme right-center of the laptop)

The short version of this is that I need a stronger unit/stronger fans. I go into greater detail below.


The Fans (Strength):

My biggest gripe with the product, and why I'll be searching for another one, is the fans are fairly weak for what I need. This may be more of my fault as the consumer than them as the manufacturer, but I truly believe that the fans are just not that efficient. They are essentially 3 small standard computer fans (What you would see in a tower, on top of the processor or on a vid card), wired together.

I had another, less costly cooling pad and it performed better, moving air more efficiently. This one performs roughly, about 75% as well, and I say that as I get overheating about that much more frequently than I did before. (The other fan rarely ever let it get to that point, though the computer would still get hot)


The Fans (physical and transporting issues):

My other issue with the fans is that they are not very sturdy themselves, and the metal meshing in the back is easily deformed, rendering the fan inoperable until you are able to push it back, which is also easy enough but still doesn't sit right with me.

The fans, when transported have to be detached before you can place your computer in (duh, I know), but this leaves them on their own and vulnerable to damage. They should have come with their own, small, simple carrying case.


The Cooling Pad/Carrying Case:

The carrying case part of this, is that they send you a elastic strap which is not adjustable and is nowhere near taut enough to hold in your computer during transport reliably. The rubber on the case is enough to keep your laptop from sliding free most of the time, but even though slipping is minimal it's still there.

The elastic band has way too much give, allowing you laptop to "bounce" while you walk. It's not nearly enough to damage my computer, but it just feels like it's going to fly out of the "case" if you do anything more than a very slow, gentle, walk.

Speed Adjustment Dial:

I feel like they were just lazy with this. The dial housing has a clip on it, which is not very strong, causing it to be prone to slipping and re-adjusting more than i'd care for. It feels sloppy.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I don't believe this to be a bad product, but I definitely do not believe it to be suited for a higher end gaming laptop. The movable fans sold me on the product, but in the end it proved to not be enough as the fans don't put out that much air.

If they could be a bit stronger, or 1 larger fan and two smaller ones, I would have no problem recommending this product. The fans are modular by the way, so that would be very easy to do.
