DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 AIO CPU Cooler Review 19

Introduction

DEEPCOOL was established in 1996 and has recently been working on making a name for themselves in the “PC Gaming” market. They have produced some very unique cases such as their Steam Castle and more recently, the TRISTELLAR to help aid in their efforts. DEEPCOOL has also produced some AIO CPU Coolers such as the Maelstrom series, which features the Maelstrom 120K and more recently, their Captain series of visual AIO CPU Coolers which come in 120/240/360mm variants. The fun doesn’t stop there though, DEEPCOOL has a wide range of cases, coolers, PSUs, fans and accessories available for their customers to choose from.

Today I will be taking a look at the 240mm version of their latest Captain series AIO CPU cooler. The Captain series is designed to be a very visual cooler and, as such, has a unique pump on it to help add a bit of flair to the users build. As mentioned the Captain series has 3x models with the only difference being their size and the number of fans included. The Captain coolers feature a red theme, which as much as I hate it, seems to have somewhere along the line been dubbed the “Gaming” colour scheme. As with most coolers these days it will work with a number of AMD and INTEL sockets and will include all the hardware to get it installed on your preferred socket type.

To get this review kicked off, let’s take a quick look at the specs followed by the packaging before getting into the closer look.

Packaging

The outer packaging for the Captain 240 is exactly what we would expect from an AIO cooler. On the front of the box, there is a nice image of the cooler so users can get a feel for what it will look like inside their build. On the back of the box, users will find more detailed specifications to make sure it will fit in their case and provide the cooling power they need for their CPU.

Inside the box, users will find the normal array of items that are pretty much standard for a 240mm AIO cooler. There is all the mounting hardware, the cooler itself, a pair of 120mm fans and something I was surprised to see, a fan hub so users will only need one fan header on their motherboard to power up to 4x fans. A lot of AIO coolers come with fan splitters, but this is the first time I have actually seen a hub of sorts, quite a nice little touch if I may say so.
