This will maximize the cooling and ensure a chilly system, even during those marathon gaming sessions, regardless of how demanding the environment while still staying quiet.
With components such as the Intel Core i7 Extreme CPUs and NVIDIA GTX 900M series graphics, the cooling is vital for performance, Cooler Boost 3 lowers CPU temperatures with ~8-10°C, and GPU temperatures ~4-5°C. With this new cooling solution, you will see not only lower temperatures than the competition can offer, but also lower total noise levels without the need for bulky coolers.
