    Is it a Hoverboard? Nope, just an almighty laptop cooler.

    Sitting next to the Antec Signature Series of PSUs was this behemoth of a laptop cooler, which is admittedly still in developmentā€¦ but my god, look at the size of the fan!

    By the time you've hooked up speakers to drown out the fan, you'll want something a little more portable ... something made with valves perhaps.

    Seriously, does anyone know how loud that will be?

    Not very loud because its a 200mm fan which will have to rotate very slowly to disappate heat compared to the smaller fans featured normally in laptop coolers?

    I've seen a couple of cases with these large fans and they were pretty loud, though admittedly quite effective at lowering temperatures. The noise characteristic is certainly different, more the air moved than the rotation, but still has the potential to be very annoying.

    If they can reduce the noise and make it run quiet, it will be a good buy.
