    Anyone have good experience with a notebook cooler for the P870?
    I'm considering the
    Coolermaster XL (one big fan, high airflow 90 CFM), but have read mentions about the
    Coolermaster U3 Plus (3 movable fans, lower airflow 15 CFM).

    Quite a difference of the CFM spec!
    Thanks

    My own custom one yes, you'll struggle to get an improvement with a normal one.

    Most on here will likely recommend the U3 Plus, as it's has a good base to modify and improve upon.
    You can switch out the fans with more aggressive ones and move them around for optimal performance.

    Many other notebook coolers end up abstracting airflow, where you either end up with worse or no temperature improvements.

    Bottle caps is the cheap high airflow option :)

    I ran a U3 with 2 x Noctua 120mm 3000RPM industrial fans 180CFM total - was VERY loud but had very good results :)

    Thanks, took a LONG time with the dremel to cut through the steel.

    Wow, cool elaborate mods!
    What do you guys mean by the bottle/gatorade caps? Just something to lift the computer up a little more away from the table/surface?
