Cooler Master Announces CM Storm SF-15 Laptop Cooler

While most people game on their desktop machines, some people like to game on the go and have invested in a high end gaming laptop to facilitate that. Still, mobile gaming rigs come with their own set of problems, like keeping your machine cool without impeding its mobility.


Cooler Master today introduced a brand new laptop cooler for its CM Storm line dubbed the CM Storm SF-15. The cooler joins the recently released SF-17 Strike Force gaming grade laptop cooler and runs a 160 mm fan to keep your system cool. It's powered by a USB 3.0 connection, adds a four port USB hub to expand connectivity, and fits laptops up to 15.6 inches. It also features a carry handle for easy transport and its height is adjustable for optimal viewing and typing angles.

Cooler Master says the SF-15 is already available, though the company never mentioned a price and the cooler's product page on Cooler Master's website lists zero online or offline retailers. We'll keep you posted on that front.

    I'm using Cooler Master NotePal x2 for my Lenovo y510p and I don't think it is really cooling my laptop with that one fan in the middle. I'm really looking forward to the SF-15 and a good review please! ^^

    Because you need the fans directly under the vents on the bottom of your laptop. The Coolermaster U2 will do this, because you can move the fans on the mesh to wherever you want them. THIS is what you need, not some over-priced CM Storm.

    Should have a wall powered option so the fan can go faster than 1200RPM. Something just about all laptop coolers can't do for some reason. USB 3's 5 watt limit is pretty good but often these coolers are backward compatible with USB 2 which is only 2.5w max, so they design the cooler to take 2.5w or less of power. Doesn't do much cooling.

    i have the SF 19 for my Asus G74sx, brought temps down almost 10 degrees and thats w/o repasting gpu and cpu ( i dont repair lappys, gotta take it to the shop in my town). Mind you my testing of temps is done by running World Community Grid and monitoring temps.
