Thermaltake Massive23 LX Notebook Cooler
The Massive23 LX has a nice looking, lightweight design and the cooling performance to back it up. Being available for a price point usually reserved for the cheaper plastic coolers and passive laptop pads makes it a pretty good bargain, as well.

Page 1: Introduction, About Thermaltake, Packaging


Desktop replacement notebooks usually have components that suck up more power and put out more heat than the more common sizes do. Even though many 17" and up laptops have active cooling systems, the more powerful models usually end up running pretty hot when in use. Despite this, the product selection for notebook coolers are generally much more limited in the larger sizes of laptops. Hoping to combat this trend, Thermaltake has developed notebook coolers for several notebook sizes. Today, ASE Labs has their new entry-level product for full-size notebook cooling, the Massive23 LX, on the test bench.

The box for the Massive23 has a pretty straightforward design. It has a matte gray finish and basically just has a large picture of the notebook cooler on it. The box also mentions how Thermaltake was a hardware sponsor of this year's WCG competition. One thing to note about this packaging is the grab handle located on the top of the box which makes the box similar to a small travel case. The intention seems to be so you can transport the cooler in the box when traveling. It is a nice touch.
