Ground-breaking Cooling System
For extreme gamers who need to keep their notebook operating at lower temperatures, Predator FrostCore allows them to further enhance their notebook’s performance as needed. It consists of a swappable Cooler Master® fan module, exclusive to Acer, which can be inserted into the notebook’s optical disk drive bay to cool down intense gaming sessions.
Acer’s dust protection system, Predator DustDefender, uses dual high-speed fans with reverse rotation to remove dust build-up, improve heat dissipation and minimize noise. The fan blades utilize an ingenious dust propelling mechanism at an extremely high speed to vastly improve air flow around high-performance components. By removing dust and maintaining a cool temperature, Predator DustDefender ensures performance is consistent, enhances user comfort and extends the notebook’s lifespan.
Lastly, the CoolBoost technology allows for custom adjustments to the fans’ airflow. A Turbo Mode option delivers maximum fan speed and cooling power when heavy use requires an added boost.

The Acer Predator gaming notebook is a pretty gaming notebook. It’s got all the right internal bits to make games sing, with a good display, a great keyboard and excellent sound bring those games to your fingers, ears and eyes. One of its bigger ideas—modular add-on cooling—might not be as big as I thought it would be, but I like the way Acer’s engineers are thinking, and look forward to further advancements in the red and black gaming hardware department. In a nutshell, this innovative product is value for money.
