Surface Pro Cooling kit add-on
  • Surface Pro Cooling kit add-on

This is an add-on to the Vertical dock for Surface Pro to deliver active external cooling to minimize CPU and GPU performance throttling.

Compatible with Surface Pro3 - Surface Pro 8

While peak performance is not improved, sustained performance is far more consistent with external cooling especially for gaming or other 3D-graphics intensive workloads. The fan is aimed towards the center of the Surface Pro where the CPU is located for maximum effect.

The upgrade kit Includes:
  • 75mm blower fan (USB powered)
  • fan speed controller
  • right-angle USB 3.0 adapter
  • mounting bracket / airflow guide
  • mounting hardware (nuts and bolts)

Performance notes:
  • We cannot guarantee any particular performance improvement on your system, but we have observed 20-30% gains in sustained package power draw when running Furmark on a Pro 4 Core i5 (9.5 watts -> 12.5 watts) at 19-20°C ambient temperature.
  • Always adjust the fan speed slowly in small increments.
  • At full speed, the fan is loud - approaching 36-39 dBa, but you only need to run the fan at 1/3 speed to get decent cooling performance
  • When the fan speed controller is set to maximum or adjusted abruptly, fan noise may increase without additional airflow.
  • This kit can be used with a Pro 3 or Surface Go but it will be less effective due to air path with respect to the CPU location

Additional notes:
  • The cooler assembly attaches to the vertical dock with a single screw (see photos)
  • Take extra care when using the cooling kit in landscape mode as it may be more difficult to Dock your Surface..
  • We do not stock inventory of this part - these are custom/made-to-order parts so expect delays on shipping
  • Detailed performance testing feedback including video, performance data logging (Cinebench, Furmark, 3DMark, etc.) is highly valued and may be rewarded with free products or product rebates
