5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler for the Novice Overclocker/Gamer!

Pros: Right off the bat, I was blown away by this product. The packaging was so organized and well labeled. I found the instructions to be easy to follow for any tech level. And another HUGE plus that anyone who has been building Intel based computers over the years can vouch for: easy mounting hardware without those darn Intel push-pins! Also features compatibility for many versions of processors/motherboards which is a great touch.

After installation with some arctic silver compound, I connected the fans and booted up the PC for some comparisons. Running an Intel Core i7 overclocked slightly to 3.5GHz I saw idle temperatures below 30 C! Normally my setup would run at roughly 35 C idle so this is a good improvement.

Running full load gaming on dual monitors only pushed the max temperatures up to 48 C. That again is about a 10 degree improvement over my older cooler which had max temps around 57 C.

Next up is the full load test which included a maximum burn on Prime95. After several hours, the max temps peaked at 55 C which is well below my safe zone of 70 C so I am overall very pleased with the results!

Cons: For once I can't think of a single con worth mentioning for this product. I rarely give 5 egg reviews because I can always nit-pick on some feature or flaw, but with this device, my personal experience has been flawless.

Other Thoughts: This is a big cooler, so be sure your case has plenty of room around the processor for it to fit. Also, some window panels that have fans on them may get in the way slightly. It just depends on how thick those side panel fans are and how wide your case is.

If you like blue LEDs, these will fit in very nicely with your setup.

If you are looking for a great cooler for a gaming build or only mild overclocking, this will do the trick. For heavy overclocking, I always recommend liquid cooling, but anything around the 4GHz or under (depending on processor of course!) should be safe to try on this monster.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Size, But Very Effective

Pros: This cooler was highly effective for me. I have a Core2Quad Q9550 which I wanted to cool down. I did not come from a stock cooler, I came from a decent aftermarket cooler, but after an overclock on the processor to 3.00GHz, the processor would regularly reach 70C and that was the point where I had the thermal alarm set to.

After installing this CPU cooler, I am not bumping up against 70C anymore under high load, and I am considering overclocking further!

The fans move a lot of air as expected, and they are also very quiet. This is one of the major benefits you get when you go to a larger fan.

I do not have a transparent side panel on my computer, so the blue LEDs just lead to a glow coming out of the various air vents on the computer. If you had a transparent side panel, as a lot of people’s gaming machines do, this might look really cool in there.

Cons: The major con of this cooler is the enormous size. Definitely do pay attention to the dimensions, there are plenty of computers I have worked inside before where I know there is absolutely no way that this CPU cooler would fit.

This CPU cooler is only for you if you have a nice big tower with a lot of open space. Please do pay attention to the dimensions before you order.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very impressed with this cooler and I would consider buying it for future builds. But, I would definitely make sure that my motherboard layout and case layout would not interfere with having this huge bulky cooler installed. Installing it in my existing machine was a shot in the dark, and I definitely feel that I was lucky that it fit. It was really close to not fitting because the fan built in to my side panel almost touched the CPU cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsBig but good design / Great performance

Pros: This heatsink is huge but I had not problem with installation. Smart design with heat sink allowed room for RAM with heat sink. Installed this on a Phenom 965 running at over 4ghz that had an H60 installed. Used a y-cable to hook both fans on cpu fan header - bios fan speed worked fine even though I was only using 3-pins.

The included fans are quiet - well quieter than my Antec case fans because I could not hear them running. This heat sink with an overclocked 965 actually ran cooler than the Corsair Hydro H60. About the same temps at idle, but running a performance assessment tool pegging the CPUs at 100% showed this CPU running a few degrees cooler. One thing I did notice is when going from 100% CPU back to idle, the CPU temps dropped much quicker with this than the H60.

Okay not really a PRO unless you are an old geek like me, but this huge heat sink looks cool. I am probably going to keep this installed and put the H60 on the shelf.

Cons: Size, but not really a con. Because of the size, I wanted to be careful, so I removed my motherboard and components, installed the DeepCool, and reinstalled the motherboard. Took a little more time, but made the job easier.

Other Thoughts: I liked my Hydro cool but I did not think the performance was all that great. I was surprised at how well this DeepCool performed. Now that I have it installed, I may try to push my old 965 BE up a few more notches since it is cool enough under load to push the voltage a little. The water coolers are great but I did find they have a big disadvantage - if the pump ever goes out, you won't know until your system shuts down. With air cooled, the system will shut down if my cpu fan fails. I had a Thermaltake Big Cool I was running in a 955 overclocked and it shut down on me one day. When I tried to power back up, it would shut back down. I pulled the case an the CPU was so hot I could smell it. The pump on the Big Cool went out - no warning - no indication - no way to tell until the CPU was hot enough to cook some eggs.

This is a little expensive for air cooling, but well worth it. You get performance equal to many liquid coolers and that makes the price actually inexpensive if you are considering liquid.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Quiet fans, Blue LED matches my current desktop's theme and fits nicely.

Smooth finish.

Packaging is excellent and neatly organized.

Comparable to my current H80i with slightly lower idle and load temps.

Easily fit in my mid tower with enough clearance for for RAM. heatsinks I've used in the past have had the heatpipes at a 45 degree angle that will collide with tall heat spreaders on RAM (forcing me to switch to a H80i). Luckily with this, the heat pipes come out a short way from the base and make a 90 degree angle up into the fins, making this a perfect fit.

Cons: Unfortunately, only 1 PWM fan, the other is standard. Luckily they are quiet enough at max for me so it was a non-issue, but for someone they may need to keep this in mind a buy an additional fan to replace the standard one.

Like usual, the manual is pretty unclear if you don't know what you are doing and it's your first time installing a heatsink with this kind of mounting. Watching a video online will help push you in the right direction.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely use this in my current main desktop, the only reason I've swapped back is the extra features my old expensive cooler has. If I hadn't been spoiled with my older one, this one would surely be in use currently. It actually has better performance and is cheaper, luckily I have another desktop in the works that this will be in use for.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: This is a good quality heatsink and fan combo. It’s packaged and labelled well, which helps during the install process. The performance is fantastic compared to a stock heatsink and fan. While it’s big, they seem to have taken into consideration that the RAM sticks and the heatsink for the memory controller will be near, and everything fit together like a glove. The fans are quiet considering their size and how much air they move.

Cons: The instructions are cryptic, with the usual drawings and arrows only. I wasn’t sure if the first picture was indicating that you need to remove both fans before installing. In the end, only the fan sandwiched between the heat sinks needed to come off (so you could get at the mounting screws)

Other Thoughts: The computer I installed this in is used for gaming, mostly steam. It’s a custom build with average specs by today’s standards, but it did have enough room for this cooler. There will definitely be times when it won’t fit in the case. Even in my full tower case, there was only a few mm’s clearance in a some spots.
Here are the benchmarks for my core 2 quad q6700 system. For benchmarking, I used the sisoft Sandra CPU benchmarking utility:
Before installing, the idle temp was around 45C, after installing that dropped to 35C, so a drop of about 10. The ambient air temperature in my house is around 27C (I live in Phoenix).
Before Installing, running the CPU benchmarking utility got the temps up to between 82C and 86C. After installing the cooler, all 4 CPUs reported a temperature of 48C , meaning that full load temps dropped between 34 and 38 degrees Celcius! Obviously the cooler does what it is supposed to.
I have the CPU overclocked by about 10%
Overall I would recommend this product for people having heat issues, or that want to overclock. It’s no fun having your system shut off without warning, or throttle the speed way down due to overheating.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Included fans are quiet and the blue LEDs are bright enough to look nice but not so much that they light up the entire room. I need to stress that the fans are very quiet. Compared to the Cooler Master EVO that I've been using, I noticed about a 5C drop in idle temperatures and 3C average on full load. System specs in Other thoughts below.

Currently, with the ambient house temperature at 23.5C the processor hovers around 33-35C average at idle and right at 40C under full, sustained CPU load.

This unit is noticeably more quiet than the Evo it replaced.

The cooler and backplate was relatively easy to install for someone like myself. If you have any previous experience in aftermarket heatsinks this one is pretty straightforward aside from a few little things like the rubber grommets that hold the bolts on the backplate.

The whole setup holds the substantial heatsink to the board and I'm not at all concerned about the mounting. Overall, the bracket seems substantial enough for holding the heatsink in place.

Cons: The instruction booklet isn't really that useful and I feel that it might be a bit confusing for someone if they are in a position where they would need to use the instructions.

The backplate was too large for the CPU cutout in my case so the motherboard had to be completely removed for installation.

My biggest gripe is that the fan in the middle of the heatsink has to be removed for installation on the board. That's not so much the problem itself. However, when removing the fan, all of the small rubber grommets fell off of the fan, which was slightly annoying. The biggest problem in this is that my heatsink had to be slightly pried apart to remove the fan from the "sandwich." This presented a very difficult removal process as I only have two hands to work with.

The brackets for mounting the fan seem a little small and flimsy at first but they get the job done and I can't really complain past saying they look like small, bent paperclips.

The heatsink is very very large and heavy. Not surprising given the level of cooling it provides but it was pretty bulky.

Other Thoughts: This heatsink replaced a Cooler Master Evo heatsink.

The system it went into was a AMD Phenom x4 955 BE overclocked to 3.9Ghz.

I will say that, overall, I'm very impressed with the cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsNever heard of DEEPCOOL, but they make a great cooler

Pros: The cooler was cushioned and held firmly in its box by some nice foam padding.

All the included hardware was partitioned into separate labeled bags based on which socket the hardware was for. Furthermore the installation guide labels every included component numerically, and every bag was tagged with what components were included, all of which helped to make installation that little bit smoother. Besides all the mounting hardware, also included was a small packet of thermal paste, which looked to be just enough for two cooler installations, although it can’t be resealed.

The overall quality of this cooler is quite good, the fans are of equal quality to 120mm aftermarket case fans I’ve used in the past. The radiator fins are robust, the copper heat pipes are well made, the base plate is beautifully made, and I can confirm that the contact patch for your CPU is polished to a perfect mirror finish. The mounting hardware too is all very well made and leaves no play whatsoever after installation.

The installation of this cooler was about as difficult as I expected. Having your motherboard out of your case is absolutely necessary if your case doesn’t feature a motherboard panel cutout. Besides that and some minor issues, the installation should take 10-15 minutes.

The installation instructions were entirely graphical, with text only being used for labeling purposes. They perfectly depicted the installation for my socket. The only notes I would add are that the Intel installation instructions for 775/1156/1155/1150/1366 are combined into a single diagram which features a 775 only step for an “Insulating Washer”. There also isn’t really a step explicit to the installation of the “Retention Plate”, but it becomes obvious by the time you’re there that it slips between the two radiators and sits in a groove on the baseplate.

The radiators are symmetrical allowing you to mount the fans on either side, or even add a third if you can find the proper mounting clips and have enough space.

Cons: Despite being well made overall, I did have some quality issues with this cooler. The first is something I noticed while inspecting the fans, which was that two radiator fin corners had managed to detach from the fins above them. They were easy enough to snap back into place but I include it as a warning because the fins are very easily separated. The other is that there are foam dampers between the fans and radiators. I’m not exactly sure what their intended purpose was (due to their poor installation), all I know is that several were missing, and the ones that remained were poorly attached, and didn’t provide any buffer between the fans and radiator. I removed them rather than risk them coming loose during operation because they were literally hanging off the fans.

I also had a few minor issues with the installation. The first was that the back plate came with a plastic cover on it which had some inappropriately strong glue holding it in place. It took me 10 minutes with a rag and adhesive solvent to remove the sticky residue. The second, although noted in the install instructions, was still something I resisted doing until it became obvious it was absolutely necessary. That was having to remove the middle fan in order to be able to screw down the retention plate that holds the cooler in place. It just wasn’t very easy to reattach that fan with the cooler sitting in my already fully built computer, I’m sure it would have been easier with the motherboard out of the case, but that kills the point of having a case with a motherboard panel cutout.

Benchmarks 2

These benchmarks were obtained using Real Temp and Prime95. Each test was run for 12 minutes (just long enough to get a nice high temperature). Data points were taken every minute and then averaged. Clock speeds are reported in MHz, CPU temperatures are reported in Celsius and CPU load is reported as a percentage. An additional data point in these tests denoted as “Time” describes the time taken to reach idle temperatures after a test and is measured in MM:SS. My test rig remained unchanged except where denoted with OC.

Other Thoughts: One fan is has a four pin connector, the other is three. Both fans also feature three mounting holes in each corner.

Definitely much louder than a stock cooler, and even louder than my case fans, not a bad tradeoff for such an improvement to CPU temperatures.

LEDs are very bright. They bathe the entirety of my case interior in a blue glow.

Remember my mention of having a proper motherboard panel cutout? Since we’re here I may as well clear that up. My case is modified, one of things I did was to make said cutout larger because when I first did this build I noticed that some of the cooler mounting points on my motherboard were inaccessible.

If you were just looking for one sentence to summarize the benchmarks, here it is: This thing runs cool. My more detailed analysis is that across every test I ran, this cooler shows significant (if unsurprising) improvement over a stock Intel cooler. Although there were only very slight improvements for idle temperatures, the benchmarks show an upward trend where the improvement becomes greater as temperatures climb higher. For instance at idle, temperatures were improved by 14% whereas Prime95 tests showed an improvement of around 30%. Perhaps the best indicator of just how much better this cooler is versus stock is the time it took to return to idle temperatures. I would ostensibly say that this cooler is a full two minutes quicker to dissipate latent heat and return to idle than a stock cooler. I would also like to point out no amount of overclocking I was willing to do brought my CPU over 100c, so I can’t definitively say at what point a stock cooler becomes inadequate.

Overall, this is a well-made and very efficient CPU cooler. I’ve in the past been skeptical of high end air coolers, I thought they were just too unwieldy, and that their day had come and gone with the advent of closed loop liquid coolers, but I now see the appeal in air cooling. It’s simple, elegant and effective all without the need of introducing liquids into your PC. The cons I mentioned were fairly minor overall, but just great enough that I felt they warrant mention. They certainly don’t detract from this cooler’s function. I’ve had this cooler installed for about a week, and in that time I’ve been running my PC with a 400MHz OC and this thing hasn’t missed a beat. My temperatures are lower and more consistent, all while running a higher clock speed. This thing has sold me on aftermarket air coolers. Having said all that, it’s still an aftermarket cooler, and as my benchmarks show, if you’re running stock clocks in a low usage scenario, a stock cooler will do the job admirably. Still though, I would recommend this cooler to anybody who actually needs an aftermarket cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome cooler

Pros: DEEPCOOL NEPTWIN CPU Cooler 6 Heatpipes Twin-tower Heatsink Dual 120mm Fans with Blue LED One with PWM got this for review and was expecting alot from it due to its design. I'll say this from the start I was not disappointed at all. Great cooler easy to mount and does what its supposed to do. Firstly its a breeze to mount I especially liked the way they use the rubber pads for the backplate to help hold the bolts in place as well as protecting the board from metal on pcb contact. PWN fan allows it to be controlled by the motherboard to spin it up faster as the load and heat increases helping to keep your cpu cooler. It is worth mention ing for the installion aspect that if your case does not have a large cutout for cpu cooler swapping you will have to remove your motherboard to install this cooler. That may take additional time so plan accordingly. Has rubber insulating pads on the fans to help reduce vibrations against the fins of the cooler. Nice vibrant blue leds on the fans to showcase the cooler. The fans are also decently quiet even when ramped up to full speed. and do a very good job keeping things cooled off. Packaging wow the way this is packaged is awesome, very dense rubber foam top and bottom should keep this unit from any shipping harm very nicely designed Deepcool.

Cons: OK as much as I like this cooler there are some cons that need to be addressed. Firstly starting with the fans really deepcool what were you thinking one PWM and one non pwm fan???? On the same cooler?? Why not make them both PWN as alot of boards these days have 2 cpu fan headers and for those that dont inclde a 3$ fan splitter cable to put both on the same cpu header for both to be controlled. Luckily these are quiet fans and having the second one at full speed doesnt detract from it as much as it would with louder fans. Still on the fans the rubber you use for the anti vibration you used self adhesive rubber basically saying this is how these fans are to be mounted and sorry you cant move it to the other side. You can take off the pads with a minor degree of effort but they become distorted, you could of easily made these pop into the hole for the fan screw without much effort or added cost per unit. Now onto the unit itself and I will say this is an issue with most if not all twin tower design coolers. And i fully understand that it is they way it has to be to keep it functional. Clearance over the ram if you run all 4 slots on your board populated with ram you will not be able to mount the fan on the leading side of this cooler, if you use ram with tall heat spreaders on it you will not be able to mount the fan on the leading edge as well. I have Corsair Dominators which have tall spreaders on them but luckily the top fin is removable so I know it will work with low profile memory. My only other con is the mounting hardware while it does do its job as intended the slots for the mounting parts of the backplate are very shallow and dont really grab a screwdriver well so take your time and be-careful when tightening things down to avoid a slip. Lastly you satate its a polished copper base mines not copper where it touched the cpu its plated, I'm sure its copper underneath but a little misleading. But it is a mirror polish and does not detract from its performance at all.

Other Thoughts: Had this cooler out of its gorgeous packaging and installed with in 20 minutes. Instantly noticed the cooler temps versus my stock cooler on my FX6350. Stock idle was (according to Hardware Monitor package temps) 25c idle 80c load. The Deepcool cooler 18c idle 49c load.. Very impressive and very decently priced as well.

to the reviewer who stated that its loose on your processor. I think something may of gone wrong either with your unit or your mounting hardware. After i read your review I went and mounted it on 2 other systems in my home and checked and not a single one was it loose on. So 2 Intel setups and 1 AMD setup all snug as a bug. I'd recommend this cooler to anyone wanting to upgrade their CPU cooler from an stock unit or other flimsy cooler anyday. Buy it you will not regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsA bit larger than I thought

Pros: Cools down the CPU really well. I had a stock cooler and an extra case fan trying to cool down my fx-6300 at a 4.3GHz overclock - not really a smart idea. I had idle temps of around 35C and load temps of 80+C. This thing cooled down idle temps (without the extra fan) to ~30C and drastically cooled the load temps to ~55C. I ran Prime95 for over one hour and never got above 59C. Super impressive. Installation wasn't too bad either - except the fact that I had to take my motherboard out to install it (partially due to my cruddy case). The fans DO come with anti-vibration pads, but they are a bit worn down for reasons that I will talk about in the cons section. Also, the little wire clips that attach the fans to the heatsink aren't that flimsy and do actually hold the fan tight to the heatsink. They have to be a little bit flexible in order to mount the fans properly so there shouldn't really be any problems with the fan clips.

It also looks really cool with the blue LED fans. I have a blue theme running on my case and these LEDs make it look really cool (pun intended).

This cooler is a lot less than any similarly performing noctua cooler (NH-D14?) and looks way better than ANY Noctua cooler. And if I asked an impartial person to figure out why the Noctua costs $40 more (almost 2x as much), I don't think he/she would be able to tell me why. Nor would I for that matter.

Cons: There aren't too many, but a few nonetheless. The first is with respect to the way the cooler was shipped. I wasn't really happy with the fact that the fans were already attached to the heatsink in the box. In order to install the heatsink, you have to take the fans off anyway. The other problem with this was the fact that the anti-vibration pads on the fans got torn and mangled, making them a bit difficult to deal with.

The cooler is also bigger than I thought it would be so it barely fit into my case. I actually had to take the plastic window on the inside of the lid and put on the outside because the tips of the copper heatpipes were catching on it. Other than that, it fit okay.

Other Thoughts: With respect to the heatsink being too big - thats just a problem that I had and the mangy anti-vibration pads aren't really a big deal. That being said...

BUY THIS COOLER!!! It lowered my temps immeasurably under load and even at idle. I am extremely impressed with the quality, performance, and cost of this cooler. In my opinion, all three factors make it much better than the Noctua NH-D15.

1 out of 5 eggsFurther info on my previous post

Pros: None at the moment.

Cons: My reply to Christopher M.

My assessment of this product is fair and unbiased, and Ive put quite a few computers together in my time. My motherboard isnt "cheap", unless you consider an Asus Sabertooth z87 "cheap". I never said the bolts are flimsy either, I simply stated they are UNDERNEATH THE FAN. This is advice that people need to know when they try installing this particular heatsink and fan. As for my case, its a Corsair Carbide 400R. And yes, I did install it correctly, and yes it still had a lot of play when it was installed. I am offended by your slandering of my review when my review was 100% accurate. Perhaps I received a bad batch, but I still stand by my review.
