Cool by Design

When it comes to using your laptop, heat generation and increased performance are in a cyclical relationship that feed off of one another. Processors generate heat that can spin up internal fans, stress systems, degrade hardware and throttle processors. This is the basic problem all laptop users face, the more you want to do with your laptop, the harder it works, and the hotter and slower it gets.

  • Conductive Cooling

    The DHCx uses an innovative thermally conductive interface to transfer heat from laptop processors to heatsink for a substantial increase in cooling performance.The thermally conductive interface uses edge bumper pads along all four sides to protect the laptop during setup. A user installed pad locks the laptop in place for improved thermal coupling (extra pads included for future setups).

  • Heatsink Cooling

    Sculpted from solid aluminum, the DHCx’s thermally massive heatsink transfers heat from the laptop to fan driven cooling airflow through extra wide vertical air channels and cooling fins. The DHCx’s integrated fan flushes out hot air, accelerates heat transfer, cools laptop enclosure, and internally cools processors on compatible laptops, such as the 2021-2023 MacBook Pro.

Setup for Cool

Running a laptop in clamshell mode with the screen closed and connected to external monitor, keyboard/mouse and power supply offers compelling benefits, such as a more compact and ergonomic desktop workstation, reduced wear on the laptop’s built-in components and improved external display performance, however, clamshell mode also traps heat, resulting in a greater need for supplemental cooling.

  • Current Laptop Optimization

    The DHCx’s dimensions, air channels and cooling features have been designed to work seamlessly with the built-in cooling systems of Apple’s current and prior generation laptops, allowing hot air to escape through laptop exhaust vents and cool air to reach laptop intake vents. The integrated cooling fan drives cool air directly onto processors in compatible laptops, such as the 2021-2023 MacBook Pro (16-in shown above).

  • Innovative Clamshell Setup

    The DHCx has been optimized to support and cool Apple laptops, while a leaning support works with a wide variety of PC laptops. The unique leaning support provides an easy clamshell setup with cables connected by holding the laptop safely within the padded cradle and opening the lid to access the power button. The heavy mass and non-slip padded cradle provide a stable non-tip support for larger and heavier laptops, such as the 16-inch MacBook Pro (shown above).
