DESCRIPTION

The new generation of Lucifer V2 has preserved every key feature from Lucifer's great heat dissipation performance: fanless design, a rubber covered PWM fan, six high-performance heatpipes, and a mirror finished copper base. However, a breakthrough has been created for its specially designed PWM fan with Min.300RPM for extreme silence. Lucifer V2 is designed for the new generation of CPU thermal requirements.

 
LUCIFER

FANLESS Design
Lucifer V2 is designed to cool the mainstream processors in fanless mode to create a totally silent system; meanwhile, Lucifer V2 is capable of cooling high-end processors with the help of good airflow inside the case.

 
LUCIFER

PWM Fan with Min.300RPM for Extreme Silence
The bundled 14cm patented rubber fan is able to enhance the cooling capacity of Lucifer V2 up to 300W. Users can install the fan as a push or pull.

 
LUCIFER

Six High-Performance Heatpipes
The six pieces of copper heatpipes are specially placed asymmetrically to avoid the interference with the memory. Lucifer V2 excels not only in cooling performance with these six heatpipes, but also in high compatibility with the system configuration.

 
LUCIFER

Mirror Finished Copper Base
Heatpipes are firmly soldered onto the copper base to enhance the heat conductivity from the processor to the heatsink. For the quickest heat transfer, the copper base has been CNC machined into a flat surface with a little convex design.

 
LUCIFER

Universal Mounting Solution
Lucifer V2 is compatible with the latest Intel Socket LGA2011. At the same time, it's equipped with a full set of installation kits for all the mainstream processors in the market.

 
LUCIFER

Flexible Fan Mounting
Lucifer V2 is versatile in set-ups: users can build a totally fanless system with it or build a air cooling system with it in passive or a super performance system with Lucifer V2 with the fans.

5 out of 5 eggsreview of Lucifer V2 cpu heatsink

Pros: great at cooling and it is huge. fan comes with it is well made. I'm running AMD FX-8320 8-CORE. this fits nicely in my case CM STORM. might not even need fan if you're not overclocking.

Cons: none that i can think of

Other Thoughts: was not hard to install.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great Performance for the price

Great Build Quality

Great Low Acoustics, extremely quiet when in use.

Ability to Passively cool 100w or Less CPUs without a fan. (seeing an AMD A10-7800, and A10-7850k passively cooled without throttling is pretty cool)

With the included fan installed it has no problem keeping CPU temps very very low. Tried it on my FX-8350, and my Core i7-4790k and it did a much better job the the coolers I was using.

Cons: This thing is Huge!!!! But with the top tier air coolers this is nothing new if you used 120mm or 140mm fan heatsinks you know what I am talking about. most Micro ATX cases would have a hard time fitting this. But Micro ATX cases made by Deep Cool (same manufacturer as this CPU cooler it will fit) was able to test it in Steam Castle MicroATX case and it fit no problem.

Although this thing performs great there are a few CPU coolers that do out perform this, but they also cost $20-40 more.

Other Thoughts: Package arrived undamaged.
The all Black packaging looks sharp. Every Box inside is all black, simple yet looks very cool.
The build quality of the heat pipes, and fins is high. Extremely solid.

I tried this fan on few of my builds. I used it to passively cool an AMD A10-7800, and A10-7850k. Both ran run at max speed without throttling at stock speeds.
I never tried to passively cool any CPUs before and was hesitant at first to try but seeing how both CPU were under 100w I figured I would give it a try. Gaming without a Fan was cool, and a fun experience. Too be fair I did have 2 cases fan installed and running and ambient air temp was 65F so I don't know if during the summer if any throttling would occur in Fan-less Configuration.

Next I tried it on my FX-8350, the cooler out performed my Hyper 212 EVO by large margin 4c at idle 8c at load. too be fair the Cooler Master fan is about 20 dollars cheaper.

Next this also outperformed my Zalman CNPS10X Extreme by 1c at Idle and 4c at load. Which is in the same price range as The Lucifer V2.

Lastly I installed it on my Haswell Devil Canyon i7-4790k which was being cooled by a Noctau NH-D14 which most would agree is a top tier Air Cooler.

Much to my surprise this thing outperformed the Noctua which I was not expecting because 1) The Lucifer V2 is much cheaper 2) the Noctua NH-D14 has such a solid reputation, which is why I chose to use it on my i7-4790k.

At idle it outperformed the Noctua by 1c degree, at load stock it was 2c cooler. Overclocked to 4.85ghz it out performed my Noctua by 3c.

Now like all things depending on amount of Artic 5 applied and how well everything sits I always leave 1-2c degree margin of error. But after testing temps and swapping out coolers, a few times The Deep Cool Lucifer V2 out performed my other coolers in my house.

Being familiar with Deep Cool PC cases, i have to say on my first use of the Gamer Storm line of products I am very pleased with the Lucifer V2. This cooler goes for $50-$65 depending on sales and yet it can beat coolers that cost more.

The build quality is solid, and if you mounted numerous CPU coolers installation is easy. I have read that some people, have issues installing on LGA-1150, I myself didnt have any issues but I have installed everything from Generic Stock AMD/Intel Heat sinks, HTPC Low Profile Coolers, Zalmans, Cooler Master, Noctau, Water Cooling etc... so if you have any concerns there are Youtube Videos out there that can help Newbies get a better idea and learn tips for installation.

If you made it far, you can tell I recommend this product. At its price points its a great Product, and can outperform cheaper and more expensive coolers. It has great build quality. It is a great choice for any one wanting to keep their gaming build cool as well as quiet. If you have a low power CPU you can even go fanless if you dare!!!

5 out of 5 eggsBang-for-the-buck leader

Pros: Deepcool positions the Lucifer V2 heatsink as a budget competitor to high-end heatsinks from Noctua, Scythe, and Phanteks. Priced at about $15 less than the Noctua NH-U14S, this looked like a good comparison (plus, we have several NH-14US heatsinks already). I used an i7 995X processor (6 core, 32nm Gulftown) as a test bed, as it uses moderate power at the base 3.6 GHz clock while throwing off gobs of heat at a full 4.5GHz overclock.

The first impression of the Lucifer V2 is that it is a large, heavy, solid beast. It requires a large case because of the height, and it weighs more than a Noctua NH-U14S. The mounting mechanism is good; not as easy as Noctua's, but less fussy than Scythe, Phantek, or Prolimatech.

Running at a 3.6 GHz nominal clock speed, the Deepcool heatsink operated at minimum fan speed. Core temperature at idle was 2 C higher than the Noctua NH-U14S. Under sustained load (45 minutes Prime95 torture test) core temperatures were 5 C higher than when using the Noctua. The Deepcool fan was nearly inaudible. The system only had SSD drives; if there were a hard drive, the Deepcool fan would not be audible. It was at least as quiet as the Noctua fan.

Overclocking the system to 4.5 GHz produced surprising results. The Lucifer V2 was 5 C cooler than the Noctua at idle and 9 C cooler under load. Experimenting further, I could coax the system up to a stable 4.63 GHz clock using the Deepcool heatsink, while the Noctua only allowed 4.5 GHz.

The fan noise was comparable between the Noctua and Deepcool (audible but low, Deepcool slightly louder), but the Deepcool was subjectively more annoying. There was a low-pitch grinding sound that the Noctua did not have. PWM control worked perfectly with the Deepcool fan, however. Unless the CPU was under heavy load, it remained nearly inaudible.

Looking at the specs, Noctua's 140 mm fan claims a higher maximum air flow. I then mounted the Noctua fan on the Deepcool heatsink and overclocked core temperature dropped by another 2 C.

Cons: The height of the Lucifer V2 requires a full-size case. Also, although the heatsink fins offer good clearance, the fan does not. If your motherboard has DIMM slots near the CPU socket, the fan will likely need to be moved up. The retention clips are on the flimsy side, so this needs to be done carefully.

The mounting plates require careful alignment to hold properly. It isn't the painful process that some heatsinks require, but it isn't the easy one Noctua owners are familiar with.

Deepcool's fan offers good acoustics at all but the highest speed. Even then, however, unless the rest of your system is built for silence, you probably won't hear it.

The fan cable is less flexible than competitor's offerings. It is also long - a good thing if you are routing it to a bay-mounted fan controller, a nuisance if using a motherboard header.

Fit and finish are rougher than Noctua or Scythe offerings. I do not see this as a functional problem - and not one you will notice after the system is assembled.

Other Thoughts: The Lucifer V2 performs well in a baseline system and spectacularly so in an overclocked environment. Overclocked CPU temperatures were within a few degrees of what I measured with a dual fan Noctua NH-D15 cooler costing twice as much. The harder you push the Lucifer V2 the better it performs.

2 out of 5 eggsUPDATED: Impressive Results but Tragic Support

Pros: THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN UPDATED AFTER DEEPCOOL'S RESPONSE TO MY FIRST REVIEW. SEE NEW NOTES IN OTHER THOUGHTS.

+ Outperforms MANY water cooling solutions

+ Largely thoughtful design considerations for motherboards. The fins are clipped so you don't run into issues with your motherboard plugs.

+ Truly does offer semi-passive cooling if you want it. You'll need at least one case fan for exhaust and to promote airflow within the case, but I have a totally silent one that works more than well enough. Without the case fan things eventually get toasty by the end of the day of normal use, it's still doable but I hardly think it's worth it when you just need one silent case fan to give you insurance. See my various temps in the Other Thoughts row.

+ At passive or low fan speeds this is a deadly silent cooler.

+ Fan has a nice rubber housing to reduce vibrations.

+ Thoughtful mounting hardware and very sturdy backplates. My motherboard barely flexed when installed and I could actually install this outside the case. Other HUGE heatsinks will flex the motherboard too much due to stupid hardware. This was a very pleasant surprise and a huge plus. Considering how many configurations it supports I don't think you can get any better than this.

+ This is easily the best bang for buck heatsink I've ever come across* (When the included fan works*)

+ Overkill HUGE packaging. Which is actually important for delicate fin configurations. It's thoughtfully designed and it's cardboard so it's easy on everything. I don't see this heatsink getting damaged in transit.

+ Thermal compound is more than suitable. We're talking about only 3 degress "hotter", at most, than Arctic Silver.

Cons: - Fan can only reliably face one way on the heatsink. Due to the fan's design and the mounting solution they provide, it will eventually clip the heatsink.

- My fan was defective. Silent at the lowest speed but it made a very unique drone at medium or higher and I know this fan shouldn't make that type of noise. It's hard to describe but it's unlike any noise I've ever heard a fan make, even at high speeds.

- You'll need at least a 6" long screwdriver to finish screwing the heatsink to your motherboard. This might pose a problem for some.

- While the heatsink itself clears the RAM modules the fan may not. You can technically mount it while resting on the RAM, however this might be an issue if the heatsink barely fits your case like it did my mid tower ATX NZXT Source 210. The heatsink itself barely fit this case, actually rubbing on the panel when I close it, but if the fan is slightly higher than the heatsink then I couldn't close my case. You can reverse mount the fan on the other side if you want to but the fan itself will eventually start to clip the heatsink when it settles in.

- This is what kills the product and brought a 5 egg down to a 2 egg: NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT! I e-mailed them twice (once before for something else and once for this review) They totally ignored both e-mails with the first being over a month ago and the latest a week ago. There's also no support number I could find to call them and they only offer "support" through e-mail, which again was totally ignored and totally unacceptable. Therefore the "warranties" they provide are useless. It's a real shame because this is an amazing product. Considering that the fan is almost 20 bucks this is no small problem whatsoever. It's basically a third of the cost you paid for.

- Not really a con given my incredible passive temps but the nickle plating does have a ripple effect and the finish had knicks and scratches in it. I was tempted to lap it down to get a truly flat surface but I decided to leave it as I got it and it didn't seem to matter.

Other Thoughts: REVIEW UPDATE:

Deepcool condescendingly, borderline insulting, reply to my review gave me no further results from their supposed tech support and "proper" e-mail. Here's my problem with their attitude, THEIR website's support e-mail is different from what their reply on newegg was for the first two months, and after I checked yet again before this update was it finally correct by month three. Yet, it's no wonder it's "my" fault according to them despite emailing them at the "proper" address they provided in their response. So, terrible support gets even worse. 3 months with 2 emails every month at every e-mail supposedly related to them resulted in 0! responses. Not even automatic and yes all my e-mails were professional and cordial, even praising. I never changed it from my first inquiry.

Everything about this cooler still stands, and frankly, I'd still take a chance on a bad fan simply because this cooler is still awesome and top of the line, especially for the price. I also don't see many other reviewers talking about the fan so it should be safer now. Just know that Deepcool is a terrible company when it comes to support and you should expect absolutely zero support from them. If deepcool ever gives me proper support I'll be more than happy to bump this up to a full five eggs.

END OF UPDATE

My temps on an i5-4570 not overclocked in a 21C room with Prime95 for 1 hour load tests:

Stock Intel Heatsink: 35C idle 90C full load with fan at max
Deepcool Lucifer V2 passive (1 case fan): 29C idle. 65C full load
Deepcool Lucifer V2 fan on low: 27C idle. 54C full load.

Now where it truly shines AMD 6800K APU. This is a hot running chip that only has a thermal barrier of 75C

Stock AMD heatsink, not overclocked: 40C idle. 72C load
Deepcool Lucifer V2 passive: 32C idle: 55C load
Deepcool Lucifer V2 fan on low: 29C idle. 44C load

I was able to get my highest overclock yet on this chip with the Lucifer bringing it up to 5.4 Ghz, a full Ghz more than stock and a 65% increased GPU overclock:
Deepcool Lucifer V2 passive: Didn't dare try.
Deepcool Lucifer V2 low fan: 40C idle 60C load.

Truly incredible for a low thermal barrier chip that definitely runs warm. Overall, this cooler EASILY BEATS Corsair's and CoolerMaster's lower end water cooling solutions. If your case can fit it, get it.


This really is a fantastic cooler but when a primary component arrives defective and you cannot get any customer support whatsoever, I cannot give it a good rating. If Deepcool gets their act together and actually acknowledges their customer's existence I will definitely update this review. If you don't mind taking the risk of getting a bunk fan, definitely go for it. This is a great cooler with an incredible value just be prepared to substitute the fan if necessary.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Super easy installation (outside of case, I have a LGA775 so I had no choice). Once on squeezes right into my ATX tower. Used AS7 for thermal paste. Installed on a Q6600 OCed to 3.2GHz (130% OC). Once baked on (about a week) temps stable at 26*C idle and 44*C under 24 hours of 7z on all cores. This is 10*C cooler than the water setup it replaced. FAR surpassed expectations.

It's also silent. I've stuck my finger in the fan twice to check if it was running. it was.

Cons: it wasn't free. It won't fit in my mini-itx case.

Other Thoughts: This thing is pretty big. But that's kind of the point. People always complain about the size of air coolers. The whole idea of a heatsink is to provide more surface area to dissipate heat.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

Pros: Keeping my Intel i7 5820k running 35c idle 48 c under load.

Cons: A little tough getting the screws to line up when attaching it to the board. But not worth taking a star off for.

Pros: Massive! I got this for my Son for Christmas. I pulled it out of the box and this thing is huge. It will not fit in his case but I knew this before ordering. I will be getting him a full tower for Christmas as well.

Cons: It's a Beast! You better make sure it will fit your case before ordering.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Heatsink and Fan

Pros: Solid and good quality package. It protects the product very well!
Massive heatsink! (take a look at the measurement before you buy this!) looks awesome and well made.
The fan comes with it looks really nice, rubberized frame, it pushes a lot of air at very low noise level.
Keeps CPU very cool.

Cons: Much bigger than I was expecting,but it still fits my case.

Other Thoughts: This cooler is fan-less design as advertised, just heatsink itself can cool down CPU for general running, attach the fan only if you plan to do gaming and overclocking.
