NZXT is a company that started out by producing unique computer cases designed for computer enthusiasts and gamers that were built well, were not based off designs from other manufacturers, and carried a distinct set of features. We have reviewed several NZXT cases at Phoronix, but with time they have expanded to produce other products. One of their first non-enclosure products was a NZXT power supply, which has now led to a complete series of NZXT power supplies, and a thermal controller that can be installed into a 5.25-inch drive bay. Their latest venture, however, has led them to producing a notebook cooler. The NZXT Cryo LX is a large notebook cooler made of aluminum, has an integrated four port USB 2.0 hub, and uses three 120mm fans for active cooling.

Features:

- Built with thick aluminum for sturdy construction
- Brushed aluminum finish
- Raised design allows for less heat pockets and better airflow
- Three adjustable 120mm fans
- Four USB ports
- Folding design for easy storage and transportation
- Support for notebooks with 15", 17", and 19" wide screens
- 16.6" x 11.6" dimensions

The Cryo LX arrived in a large, colorful cardboard container. Shown on the front was a picture of the product while in the back was the list of features. Advertised on the packaging was that the Cryo LX is the world's largest full aluminum notebook cooler. Inside a plastic bag and two blocks of Styrofoam protected the cooler. Included with the NZXT Cryo LX was the user's manual, a USB cable for providing power to the three fans, and a USB cable used for connecting to the cooler's integrated USB 2.0 hub.
