For those that wish to run their laptops with the screen open or have the option to also run in closed-screen clamshell mode, then the Cooling Stand model S Pro provides the most open-screen cooling with the least noise and greatest flexibility to support and cool a variety of laptop models and sizes. The S Pro also includes a fully modular system for model conversion, future upgradeability, and user right-to-repair cleaning and servicing.
For those that wish to run their laptops exclusively in closed-screen clamshell mode, then the Cooling Dock model D2 Pro II and D1 Pro II provide the most closed-screen cooling with the flexibility to support and cool a variety of laptop models and sizes. For 2012-2015 MacBook Pro and 2008-2018 MacBook Air laptops, the original D1 Pro model will provide equal or greater cooling but with less flexibility for accommodating other laptops.
The best overall cooling performance depends on a number of variables, including whether the laptop screen is open or closed, and the cooling system setting. The Cooling Stand S Pro with the laptop screen open and the cooling system set on high-speed results in the lowest laptop temperatures at quiet to moderate noise levels. Closing the screen and running in clamshell mode traps more heat and raises temperatures. The Cooling Dock D2 Pro II with the screen closed and the cooling system set to Turbo+ speed has the highest cooling power to help remove clamshell mode's additional trapped heat but with higher noise levels. With the screen closed and cooling system set to more moderate levels, the Cooling Dock D2 Pro II and D1 Pro II models generate approximately the same cooling power as the Cooling Stand S Pro, although, the Cooling Dock models concentrate more cooling at the processors.
