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

Pros: Easy to install. Works great keeping temps under control on my AMD Athlon X4 860K.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Some complaints about the tubing being to stiff. The tubing is just fine. Just orient the pump and radiator in the right direction. The inlet/outlet on the pump should face toward the front (forward) of the case. The inlet/outlet on the radiator should face toward the top (upward) of the case. I purchased the Captain 120 because the included heat sink that came with the AMD Athlon X4 860K is worthless. The price of the Captain 120 is comparable to after market air heat sinks and water cools better than air.
