Cooler Master Storm SF-19 Strike Force Notebook Cooler
The Cooler Storm SF-19 offers performance that could best be described as fantastic. However, there are some major drawbacks in practicality that keep the cooler a niche product.

Page 1: Introduction, About Cooler Master, Packaging


Generally, performance and usability sit on opposite ends of a sliding scale. You can buy a Ferrari, but it wouldn't be useful day to day. You could buy a Volvo and give up performance for practicality. In regards to notebook coolers, most products tend to be somewhere along the middle. However, the market niche for a performance-oriented cooler still exists. ASE Labs has Cooler Master's recent entry into that market, the SF-19 Strike Force.
