DEEPCOOL Gabriel CPU Cooler
Four Heatpipes - Low Profile - HTPC SFF Cooler - 120mm PWM Slim and Silent Fan

DEEPCOOL

Low-Profile Design

Based on the concept of designing a small form factor cooler for Mini ITX boards, the overall dimensions of Gabriel are 120 x 120 x 60mm, with a 20mm-deep fan included. The low-profile design ensures the widest compatibility.


DEEPCOOL

Four Heatpipes & Nickel Plating

Gabriel consists of a copper base with four soldered copper heatpipes and aluminum fins. The full set of heatsink is nickel-plated in order to inhibit oxidization and ensure a long lifespan.


DEEPCOOL

Silent PWM Fan

Gabriel is equipped with a high performance 120mm cooling fan, which can push 61.93CFM airflow to cool down the heatsink. This slim fan is PWM controlled, running at 900-1800 ± 10% RPM. However, it is very quiet - at 18.2dBA - due to its extraordinary dynamic balance.


DEEPCOOL

Highly Durable Fan Cable

The fan cable is made of PTFE (Poly Tetra Fluoro Ethylene), which withstands high temperatures and heavy duty usage. Two pieces of rubber cable ties are attached to route the fan cable to keep everything in place.


DEEPCOOL

CPU Socket Compatibility

With multiple clips, Gabriel can support all mainstream Mini ITX processors including Intel LGA1150 / 1155 / 1156 and AMD FM2 / FM1 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds work, but overall a good HTPC Cooler

Pros: - Keeps CPU cooler than the stock cooler
- You can hear the fan at full speed, but overall quiet
- Nice heatsink design that gives greater mother compatibility by just positioning it different ways. Because of this, it didn't cover any of my ram slots

Cons: - A little bit tricky to install
- The mounting screws weren't long enough when using the supplied washers

Other Thoughts: I'm using this to cool an Intel 3770 in a tight case, and so far it's doing the job. Idles around 37C, max load at around 60C. Although you can hear the fan at full load, it's not super loud, and normally I can't hear the fan at all.

The biggest problem I had was that when using the washers provided to me, the screws weren't long enough to connect to the heatsink. I tried not using the washers, but then my computer would turn on and off on it's own, which is very weird, and scared me. I removed the heatsink, and instead I cut small pieces of electrical tape and put holes through the middle and used it instead of the washers. A stupid solution, but it works fine. I'm not sure if my motherboard is thicker than most, but it seems Deepcool needs to re-think that part of their design. Because of this I was going to give it 3 eggs, but because of it's performance, and the fact that I haven't heard of anyone else having this issue, I gave it a 4

5 out of 5 eggsSilent and Awesome

Pros: Big fan that runs quiet but throws a lot of air. It even blows on the memory. Very nice packaging! You even get a sticker to place on your case.

Cons: Mounting can be tricky, but not horrible. You'll need access to the back of the board or else remove it.

Other Thoughts: This replaces a Noctua L9i, which developed a nasty fan grinding noise. I'm very happy with the improved noislessness and lower CPU temps.

2 out of 5 eggsNot too impressed

Pros: Nice packaging, fits itx form factor

Cons: Fins bend/break extremely easily, mounting system involves holding the motherboard vertical while simultaneously inserting screws from the bottom and holding heatsink against the board with fresh application of thermal paste, so it ends up sliding around a lot and easily making a mess.

The biggest con is the clips for the fans. Not only are they cheap garbage, but you're stuck with the stock fan unless you can find one just as thin elsewhere. Noctua fans are a no go which is disappointing. Any 120mm cpu cooler should universally be able to mount any 120mm fan imo.

Other Thoughts: The fan clips are the achilles heal of this otherwise average cooler, the price is good but I wouldn't buy it again even for $30.

5 out of 5 eggsNice cooler for HTPC/ITX

Pros: Very quiet PWM fan, low profile and keeps my CPU cool (using in a Corsair Air 240 w/ Xeon E3-1231v3 CPU, getting between ). Installation was fairly simple although you have to clip on the fan yourself. The wiring on the fan is nice and stays neatly coiled around the fan housing.

Cons: The powder blue fan housing doesn't match anything on the market (maybe I'll paint it to match my motherboard accent color later). I guess it stands out in this way.

Other Thoughts: I needed a smallish cooler and have used a Noctua NH-L9 in a low power HTPC build before. The computer that this Deepcool went into is mostly my graphics rig and I wanted a little more cooling performance.

The cooler is probably somewhere in the middle of a Noctua NH-L9 and NH-L12 and cheaper than both. So it went it in my system after reading some positive reviews on the internet.

It's too bad the cooler seems to be hard to buy in the US.

5 out of 5 eggsFits into Mini-ITX Case

Pros: Fits into a Cooler Master 130 Mini-ITX case with a Mini-ITX motherboard. Easy to install.

Cons: The fan attachment clips are pretty flimsy, but work fine.

Other Thoughts: I am using this in a Mini-ITX build. Space was paramount and this heatsink/fan combo barely fits, but it does!
If you are using this on a Mini-ITX motherboard, then make sure to buy all your RAM now... The heatsink totally goes over both DIMM slots, so you will not be able to install any RAM after the heatsink is in place. I think the 120mm fan is a little overboard, I am using it on a 65W low power Intel CPU, so my temperature is below 40C at all times.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cooling Power in a Small(ish) Package

Pros: Immediately reduced my CPU temp from a range of 35-36 degrees at idle with stock AMD cooler, to a positively Frigid 27 degrees Celsius at idle.

Cons: Mounting system is a little funny, one needs have a hand on either side of the motherboard during the mounting process, makes it hard to do anything but install while motherboard is vertical, making hard to achieve even spreading of thermal paste while seating on the cpu.

Other Thoughts: I have a micro atx motherboard, with top mounted power supply in my case. This cooler interfered with my rear exhaust fan, which I had to reinstall on the outside of my case. Other than that, geesum my cpu temp is down to 25 degrees celsius while I am writing this review, with ambient room temp of 22.2 degrees (72 farenheit).

1 out of 5 eggsPoor performance

Pros: Very nice packaging....

Cons: It only makes contact with the very middle of the processor. Reinstalled it twice. the bottom must be deformed not level to give contact. idle 45c underload is 70c+ that is unacceptable

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME MINI ITX COOLER

Pros: 60mm in height
Fits inside Cooler Master Elite 130
Excellent cooling
Comes in really nice packaging

Cons: Mainly user error - but the wire clips to keep the fan in place were confusing at first

Other Thoughts: With a mini itx motherboard - BE SURE TO GET LOW PROFILE RAM. My G Skill Ares has about 1-2mm between the top of the RAM and the heatsink. I would recommend not getting RAM any taller than 32mm

As a first time builder, water cooling gave me a scary "don't do it" feeling - especially after seeing mixed reviews on Newegg about the top selling water coolers and reading that some (rarely) do leak. I needed an aftermarket air cooler with potential to do some minor overclocking that would still fit my mini itx case (Cooler Master Elite 130). I haven't tested overclocking on my i5 4690k yet, but I've been extremely happy with this product so far.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good Cooler

Pros: Decent cooler for i7 2600K @ 3.8 (All are max temps out of all cores)
Idle :34
Normal/light: 44
Max 79
Quiet during normal use, gets a little more noisy when gaming.
I'd say a good cooler for everyday use.
Very easy to install and comes with all that was needed.
Looks good in my case (LanBoy Air Blue)
Does a very good job of dropping temps after gaming session.

Cons: Gets a little noisy under load
OC to 4.0 and temps reach 83 which is in the "still safe" range, but not great.
Open air case with plenty of fans.
It's not the greatest for gaming or pushing the cpu (OC).
It's the only fan I can hear in the case, but not too loud or annoying.

Other Thoughts: I am fairly happy with this fan for what it is. Low Profile, quiet under normal circumstances, and no tricks or gimmicks to install.
My corsair H80i started to leak after 2 years of use and almost set fire to my R9 290X and I am now hesitant to go back to water cooling. Something about burning down the house.
I have plenty of ventilation and fans to create good air flow, but this little guy still seems to struggle to keep temps down, but does keep them well within acceptable ranges.
I would recommend this to any one who wants a low profile cooler better than stock.
I didn't want to go with a monstrous tower cooler or water cooler even though they are much better coolers. I like having a nice open and organized case.
