DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 360 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with 3*120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked great for four months, much better than stock or aftermarket air cooling.

Cons: Pump died randomly one night with no warning. Woke up and the computer had shut itself down due to thermal overload. Put on my 5 year old Thermaltake 8 heatpipe air cooler and the computer has been working for the last two weeks. My temps are 30c above what I had on the the aio. idling at 45c maxing out at 65c. ouch.
Deepcool customer support is not based in the US. The have two offices - Europe and Hong Kong. They responded pretty quickly and spoke decent english, but ultimately had to get an RMA through newegg as their process was unclear.
Still no replacement unit from newegg. Very skeptical of Deepcool now. I dont think I will ever buy another product that does not have a US support office. It is always a nightmare when something goes awry. the shipping costs to another continent are astronomical and overseas folks rarely speak english.

5 out of 5 eggs All is well 03/04/2015

This review is from: AMD HD79906GB Radeon HD 7990 6GB 384-Bit Video Card

Pros: Best looking air cooled card AMD has ever made.
Idles @ 58c tops out @ 77c
Firestrike score of 10111
200fps in Bioshock 3
120fps in BF4
90fps in Tomb Raider
80-90fps in Crysis 3
All @ 1080p on Ultra.
I have a 144hz monitor so I can see the extra frames.
Very little tearing so the AMD drivers are good too.
No coil whine
Very quiet fans never go above %45
Fans idle @ 25%

Cons: Would have liked to have some accessories in the box. DP adapters and so on. Got a box and a cd ... that is it. Knew that ahead of time though.

Other Thoughts: Came from a single 7970 to this. Did not have anymore pcie slots and I have only pcie 2.0 so this is probably the most power I can get without an interface bottleneck. I also have a quadro in my rig for rendering.
The 1 year warranty was $28. Get it.
Got mines for $299. The price here fluctuates a lot. Seems to be a 2 week cycle.
Corsair TX850 PSU 80+ Certified
AMD 8350 @ 4.6ghz
32gb of ram
AMD 7990 (14.2 Catalyst Omega Drivers)
Quadro 4800
Samsung 840
2x Toshiba 2tb HDD
It all pulls about 650 watts from the wall at full load, which puts the PSU in its most efficient range.
