The Best Silent Notebook Coolers

There are a wide range of silent notebook coolers out there, but only a few really stand out as the best.  Silent notebook coolers nood to be made with reliable high quality components, a cheap notebook cooler can quickly develop a rattle, or have a fan fail completely.

High quality silent notebook coolers do cost a little more, but they can last for years, and will not develop a rattle or whistling sound that occurs in their cheaper counterparts.  Thes best silent notebook coolers don't just cool quietly, they also cool effectively.  This is often helped by fantastic designs and high quality powerful silent fans.

Zalman Silent Notebook Coolers

The good news is that nearly all the Zalman notebook coolers are silent, and if you want to find out more you can take a look at this brilliant Zalman Notebook Cooler Comparison Chart to decide which of these silent notebook coolers is best for you.

I will also give a quick overview of some of the very best silent Zalman notebook coolers which you can choose from!

Zalman NC3000

The Zalman NC3000 is one of the latest silent notebook coolers by Zalman, and with a single large 220mm silent fan, and the usual excellent 3mm thick aluminum covered Zalman design, this is one great notebook cooler. The Zalman NC3000 comes in 2 versions, standard and ultimate. The only real difference is that the Zalman NC3000U incorporates a 4 port hub, where-as the Zalman NC3000S ony has a USB pass through port.

These are however both silent notebook coolers which remain quiet, while giving you fantastic notebook cooling power. These notebook coolers also both have an on/off switch, and a fan speed wheel!

Zalman NC2000

The Zalman NC2000 is a fairly old notebook cooler, yet it is still one of the world's best silent notebook coolers. The Zalman NC2000 is similar to the NC3000, but it has two smaller fans. This means that while the Zalman NC2000 is a silent notebook cooler, you can hear the fans a little when it is on full speed.

The Zalman NC2000 notebook cooler also has a fans peed wheel, and a USB pass through port. It also comes with an on-off button, useful if you want to conserve battery power!

The Zalman NC2000 also has a 3mm thick aluminum cover to help dissipate the heat from an overheating notebook!

Antec Notebook Cooler 200

The Antec Notebook Cooler 200 is a rather futuristic looking notebook cooler, however it is surprisingly quiet, and powerful. While the Antec Notebook Cooler 200 ismostly made of plastic it still manages to cool fairly well.  It does not quite match up to the standards of a Zalman notebook cooler, but for most people it will be more than acceptable.

The Antec notebook cooler 200 has a 200mm fan which can quietly cool your notebook, this also has a blue LED backlight, which looks pretty cool. Unfortunately the extra features of this silent notebook cooler end there, and it fails to provide even a USB pass through port for your devices.

      I have a HP Pavillion too, it gets insanely hot, especially around the power socket and to the left of the touch pad.

      A very useful hub - I had problems with my hp paviliion dv9000 laptop overheating and cured it by changing bios settings - can be tricky if you don't know what your'e doing! Better to buy a cooler.

      I definitely need a notebook cooler as I constantly have overheating problems with it. You have supplied very helpful information to narrow my choices.
