    I wonder if it fits? the NC-2000 will definitely fit, but its much more expensive, I have a widescreen 15.6 btw. Or it doesnt matter even if the cooler is smaller than the laptop?

    Size of both your laptop and the cooler should be listed in their respective specifications. I suppose you would want the cooler to be as large as the lappy.

    Right

    Cooler: 345(L) x 299(W) x 52(H) mm

    Laptop: About 380(L) X 255(w) mm

    I know that my laptop sticks out by a bit, but is it still allright?

    Open to other notebook/laptop cooler suggestions too.

    Cant find the Thermaltake one here, maybe I need to look harder. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

    Fourstaff, I'm sure it won't be smaller than your laptop and that it'd be ok.

    I use the NC-2000 myself for laptop in system specs (Gwenhwyvar) which is 17" widescreen and the cooler fits just exactly for it.

    Were you to buy the NC-2000 you'd be having a spare quarter inch on each 4 sides of the laptop, and probably its fans would be situated a bit too low down for optimized cooling.

    My friend uses a NC-2000 for his 17" Kobalt beast of a laptop and it suits it prefectly, so I was thinking of getting its little brother for this 15.6" laptop. Will be ordering it soon then.
