CoolIT Systems is working on a new MTEC Docking Station that uses thermoelectric cooling to keep your laptop chilled. The firm says this docking station gives a 40 Watt cooling boost with a 10°C decrease in temperature.
Collaborating with Intel, CoolIT has developed the ultimate cooling solution for Intel® Core™2 Extreme mobile processor based laptops including the first mobile quad core processor - the Intel® Core®2 Extreme mobile processor QX9300. CoolIT Systems’ new MTEC docking station effectively enables safe, yet powerful overclocking capabilities, and boasts the following breakthrough features.

  • CoolIT’s MTEC Technology – An efficient, Thermoelectric design manages airflow by pumping chilled air directly into the laptop’s existing CPU and GPU intakes while guiding all heat exhaust through the rear of the dock.
  • Full Software Control – CoolIT’s MTEC Control Center software allows users to customize performance based on cooling power vs. desired acoustic levels. Control GPU cooling independent from CPU cooling. The software also provides detailed, real-time readouts for chilled air supplies.
  • Noise Reduction – Low noise airflow design to accelerate heat dissipation without the acoustic penalty.

    “The MTEC Docking Station marks a crucial turning point in mobile gaming technology,” states Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems. “The Intel® Core®2 Extreme mobile processor QX9300, enhanced by CoolIT’s MTEC technology, will bring avid gamers and enthusiasts to unprecedented levels of extreme gaming performance.”


  • The CoolIT Systems MTEC Docking Station will be available in Q1 2009from select OEM partners.
