Testing

The G3T is a perfect size for my Presario 900.



My laptop already has rubber anti-skid pads on the bottom, so I did not need to use the included stick-on dots. The cooler does sit at a slight angle and you would not want your notebook sliding off.



My USB ports are on the rear of my laptop, and the included power cord was plenty long enough to reach around the side.



It's good that the G3T includes the indicator LED because at 5v operation the two 70mm fans operate at less than 16dB and can barely be heard over the internal laptop fan.



I found it a little strange that the default cooler configuration had the fans pulling air down rather than blowing over the bottom of the laptop. I would think that the opposite would yield better cooling performance, but then I wasn't impressed with the last laptop cooler I tested, which did have the fans setup as exhaust. So for the testing I left the G3T in the default fan orientation.



Considering that the previously tested laptop cooler did not help temperatures at all, I was pleasantly surprised to see an overall 2 C drop in temperatures both at load and idle.

Conclusion just ahead.
