From the Deepcool website:
Deepcool was founded with the mission of providing the best performance and humanized thermal solutions for worldwide customers. Established in 1996, Deepcool originally produced desktop and server coolers for ODM partners. With the rapid development of personal computers, Deepcool expanded the business into desktop cooling products and laptop cooling accessories.

With more and more media exposure and publication, such as awards from renowned websites and magazines like Pure Overclock, Tom’s Hardware, Guru3d, CHIP, etc., Deepcool now enjoys a good reputation among daily computer users, gamers, and overclockers.

Deepcool may not be a company you hear of often, but they have been a part of the PC-cooling market for some time. Since 1996, they have been offering a wide range of products, including fans, coolers, cases, and, now, all-in-one liquid coolers. It is this drive to satisfy their customers and provide them with an excellent experience that turned Deepcool into the manufacturer we know today.
What killer products does Deepcool offer you ask? Well, let us start with some other coolers I have reviewed, the Gamer Storm Assassin and Lucifer. Both were outstanding in terms of price and performance, and that is just a taste. The company has long offered quality fans and cases as well. The new Steam Castle is a prime example as it is already garnering some serious attention and offers some unique looks.
Speaking of unique looks, today's review will focus on the Deepcool Gamer Storm Maelstrom 240. Like many other companies, Deepcool jumped onto the all-in-one liquid cooler bandwagon, but with their own twist. Using a red and black theme with a pulsing LED on the pump, the Maelstrom 240 doesn't do anything truly new, but it does stand out. However, just standing out won't be enough as the real questions are what kind of performance it offers and how loud it gets. Well, let us find out!
