[Amazon.ca] Lightening Deal - Aluminum Laptop Riser (supports up to 15.6")

Been eyeing this sleek laptop stand at $49.99
Lighting Deal: $41.46
Clip $5 coupon
No Tax
Total: $36.64 (27% savings)

Please be nice - as far as laptop stand goes, there might be cheaper finds, but not as minimally designed

For those wondering if Laptop risers help with temperatures- they make a massive difference. My laptop is 10c cooler while gaming after putting it on a laptop stand- I even overclock it now lol. If you're gaming on your laptop with a separate keyboard/mouse- I highly recommend it.

Does anyone have any experience using a dedicated laptop cooler? Those buggers are expensive and I'm curious if they actually work better than a simple riser does in terms of temperature control.

The ones with the fans? They work better than a stand but they do produce some noise depending on the quality of the fans.

I picked up a PrimeCables laptop cooler ($8) the other month. Even with no fan turned on, the laptop is cooler. The fan is noisy, so I only turn it on as needed (through a USB hub with a switch).

If you are going to pay $30+ for a stand, i would suggest getting a height adjustable one even if paying a little more. It will make a huge difference.

I have a cheap Cooler Master before that was USB-powered. They really worked and kept my temps down because of the additional cool air flowing to the laptop. Though I only use it for gaming when laptop runs really hot. If your laptop needs that kind of cooling, then yes that is better than just a riser. I would use riser if im not gaming, and im on a desk.

Mine looked similar to this:

I'd take either monitor stand (cheaper) or cooling pad (more effective)

This one is a hard pass for me
plz don't touch my signature.

don't make me less of a human just cause i don't share your "idiotologies".

I can't find a PrimeCables cooler at close to that price, closest I can see is this one, is it in the ballpark?

It was the Targus refurb one, which I believe is no longer available. The one you indicated is probably better. It's really too bad there doesn't appear for a way to turn on a USB port through software. It'd be nice to run an app that checks the laptop's temp and then turns on a USB port to power the cooling pad's fan.

I wonder if the Aluminium construction helps with the heat dissipation, and if it's as good as a cooling pad with fans. It would be quiet.

Not an issue for me, the notebook only has a few USB ports so I put everything through an individually switchable USB hub. :)

A number of more expensive coolers on Amazon have fan speed switches, that's somewhat tempting but I'm not sure how necessary, they all have significantly higher fan speeds and smaller fans so the control is probably more necessary on those.

Not enough surface area contact to make a difference. Plus, its either interacting with laptop body or hot air at which point being made of aluminum is not adding anything. The material of the stand would only help if it was attached to the heat producing components in a way that would allow heat to dissipate faster.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

No, but the hutch I had my notebook on has a bit of a lip to keep things from rolling off, I guess, so I had the back of the notebook propped up on that. Didn't help much.

These could help more if you wanted to go next-generation eraser:
