A Closer Look

At first glance not much new under the horizon, why baptize it then as a true gaming notebook cooler? While most coolers only have one or max two manufacturer pre-determined angles, this Storm SF-17 model can be set in four different angled positions; namely the end user has the choice between a 3.5, 17, 21 and 28.5 degree setup. Everything was done to optimize the ergonomics. By this design, the CM Storm engineers succeeded in maximum flexibility for the view angle and best of all to relieve wrist stress when battling it out during long gaming sessions.

 

 

 

 

It all looks so simple, but the design is well implemented and executed. Even in a fully closed position the bottom vents still allow for decent airflow for the 180mm Fan.

 

 

 

 

The built-in cable routing system is also a nice feature for the Storm SF-17 gaming notebook cooler.
