Cooler Master NotePal Infinite EVO tested - 3. A closer look at Infinite EVO

Review: It can be better

Infinite EVO has a unique U-shape, avanguard but stylish. The EVO’s surface is made of aluminum. We’re not talking about classic brushed aluminum but rather sand-spray finishing – similar to fine sanding paper. Edges are sharp but expertly brushed to prevent cuts.

Infinite EVO supports notebooks from 12’’ to 15.4’’. Smaller notebooks will fall through the hole while 17’’ will simply look out of place, as laptop edges will exceed the device’s edges.

At first sight, the Infinite EVO seems as if it has no fans, since we're used to seeing centrally placed ones. However, Cooler Master used a hole in the centre and clever placement of fans to get rid of heat. Judging by the U shape, it’s easy to conclude that the fans are at the cooler’s thickest point. The Infinite EVO is 17mm thick in the front and 61mm in the back, which at the same time provides a nice and comfortable angle.

The EVO can be used in one’s lap as well since it has no rough edges. There are four rubber feet on the bottom to prevent sliding.

The air openings you see on the picture above are air inlets. You can see how Cooler Master handled airflow on the EVO from the picture below.

Infinite EVO is Cooler Master’s premium product designed to look and work well. On the left, you’ll find the On/Off key, RPM regulator, mini USB connector as well as an additional DC5V connector (the adapter for it isn’t included).

On the right, you’ll find a small USB hub with tree USB 2.0 ports.
