Cooling Dock

Ships in 1-2+ weeks, see orders tab.

  • The Cooling Dock uses a unique leaning vertical configuration for easy closed-screen clamshell setup and processor area cooling to help restore performance potential for pro users.
  • All Cooling Dock models run the laptop in closed-screen clamshell mode with a leaning support milled from solid aluminum that provides passive heat sink cooling, preserves built-in screen/keyboard, reduces desktop footprint, includes a user adjustable laptop locking pad, and allows for easy clamshell mode setup with access to the laptop’s power button while connected to cables and safely held within a padded cradle.
    • The new D2n Pro, D2 Pro and D1 Pro models (formerly named D2 Pro II and D1 Pro II) include universal support and active cooling designed for all Mac and PC laptops, with optimization for current generation Mac laptops. All three models drive airflow through vents that cool the laptop’s enclosure at the processor location as well as the surrounding enclosure. The D2 cooling system offers multiple user selectable modes, user customization, and an external thermistor to measure laptop enclosure temperatures and automatically adjusts fan speeds. The D2 Pro is available with either a standard D2 cooling system that prioritizes high-speed cooling performance for maximum cooling potential or a D2n cooling system that prioritizes low-speed audio performance for noise critical environments. The D1 cooling system uses a single speed with balanced cooling and audio performance for simplicity of operation. All three models use a modular cooling system that allows for exchanging cooling systems, as well as easier servicing and maintenance.
    • The original D1 Legacy model (formerly named D1 Pro) includes a support and active cooling system designed to internally cool processors with cooling air driven directly into a center intake vent on compatible prior generation Mac laptops (2012-2015 MacBook Pro, 2008-2017 MacBook Air, and select PC laptops). The cooling system uses a single speed with balanced cooling and audio performance for simplicity of operation.
    • The updated D model includes universal support and passive cooling designed for all Mac and PC laptops, with optimization for current generation Mac laptops. It feature a massive 3.3 pound aluminum heat sink and a natural cooling airflow channel for silent cooling.
  • The Cooling Dock product line includes the new next generation D2 Pro and D1 Pro models, as well as an updated D model. The new D2 Pro model is now available with either a standard D2 cooling system that prioritizes high-speed cooling performance for maximum cooling potential or a D2n cooling system that prioritizes low-speed audio performance for noise critical environments. All new models include universal support and cooling designed for all Mac and PC laptops, with optimization for current generation Mac laptops. All model D2 Pro, D1 Pro and D orders have included the new or updated models since September 2020, and D2n Pro November 2020.

    In support of our existing customers, we offer the following upgrade options:
    • Customer with a new D2n / D2 / D1 Pro model: The new Cooling Dock Pro models use a modular cooling system that allows you to install a different D2n, D2 or D1 cooling system.
    • Customers with an original D2 / D1 Legacy model: Send us an original D2/D1 Legacy to upgrade the aluminum dock with new venting and padding, and reuse of the original D2/D1 cooling system (the upgrade includes cooling system cleaning, as well as a firmware update for D2 systems). Alternatively, purchase a new D2n / D2 / D1 Pro model and receive a partial refund on the purchase after returning the original D2 / D1 Legacy model. The upgrade cost or the amount of the partial refund depends on the Legacy model and its condition, please contact us for details and an estimate.
    • Customers with an original D model: Purchase a set of Laptop Retention Pads at our material cost.

Running in clamshell mode traps heat while external displays and pro apps can make laptop fans scream, degrade hardware reliability and reduce performance.
