Deepcool Releases the Captain EX RGB CPU Coolers

Deepcool has announced a new line of CPU coolers which partake in the current RGB LED craze so as to induce crazed disco-dancing from whoever puts eyes on your glorious rig. there are apparently no differences in cooling performance from Deepcool's previously-released Captain EX, apart from the RGB lighting. The lighting on Deepcool's Captain EX RGB can be controlled through software available in some motherboard manufacturer's systems, such as ASUS' Aura, or through an included wired controller. Where these coolers deviate from the norm is that they not only include RGB lighting integrated onto the waterblocks, they also come bundled with an additional LED strip for your case.

The Deepcool Captain EX RGB comes in in 120 mm or 240 mm sized radiators, with one or two fans according to the model. They are compatible with all modern processors from AMD (including AM4) and Intel (including LGA2011-v3 and LGA1151), with both parts being rated for the same 150 W TDP. Tubing length comes in at 310~315 mm, and the fans are rated for 500 RPM at the lowest end (±200 RPM) to 1800 RPM on max speed (±10% RPM). The noise profile oscillates between a 17.6 dBA minimum and a 31.3 dBA maximum. The Captain 120EX RGB and the Captain 240EX RGB from Deepcool will be available starting next month for $99.99 and $129.99, respectively.

I would read that as a low of between 300 and 700 rpm and a high of between 1620 and 1980 rpm

Nice to see the black version have colour options rather than just red, wonder if they'll follow suite with the white version?

Yes, because this is not Asetek.

Question is have the resolved the leaks?

There was a large batch of the previous models that were leaking from the factory, even before being taken out of the box, apparently right where the tubing attaches to the pump....

Can anyone confirm this, perhaps with the help of a factory rep/contact?

Cool. Like the look, though am I correct in that I'd need to purchase a complete AIO just to get at that specific block/pump for my own build?

it looks to be the same one used in the genome rog edition case, except it doesnt have a 360mm option, i would say it is a decent cooler but it doesnt have the premium feeling you get around corsair aio units
