DeepCool Launches New Performance Air Cooler AK400

DeepCool, a global brand in designing and manufacturing high-performance computer components for enthusiasts worldwide, announces a highly compatible CPU air cooler that offers impressive heat dissipation power in a compact and efficient design. With a slim profile, the AK400 air cooler serves as a thermal solution that can easily fit into mainstream ATX/MATX system builds. the unique design of the matrix form fin-stack and the non-RGB cover top offers a special aesthetic value to particular users.

The DeepCool AK400 Performance CPU Cooler is highly compatible and offers impressive heat dissipation power of 220 W in a compact and efficient design. Four direct touch copper heat pipes quickly transfer heat away from the processor into a dense matrix fin array heat sink for effective cooling performance.
The AK400 achieves high-performance cooling with minimal noise levels at ≤29 dBA full load noise output, thanks to the high-performance FDB fan that maximizes airflow and static pressure when needed and intelligently ramps down for silent efficiency.

Advanced heat dissipation is extraordinary on the AK400, due to the 4 direct touch copper heat pipes rapidly transferring heat away from the processor effectively and dissipating through a single fin stack tower with a unique matrix array design. The premium polish and a matrix shaped fin-array heat sink sport a unique and high-end aesthetic.

The compact size allows full compatibility with other components and fits in a wide variety of cases at 155 mm tall. With a removable top cover, it supports some ITX cases at 153 mm tall. Also, 45 mm fin width supports 100% RAM clearance. The improved installation method is made easy with a sturdy all-metal mounting bracket and a quick five-step process to safely fasten your cooler on multiple platforms supporting the latest from Intel and AMD.

Intel: LGA1700/1200/1151/1150/1155
AMD: AM4

Availability, Warranty, and Pricing
The AK400 Performance CPU Cooler is available on the DeepCool worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. All are backed by a three-years warranty, alongside the DeepCool worldwide customer service and technical support network.

The MSRP of AK400 Performance CPU Cooler starts at $34.99, AK620 at $64.99. For the up-to-date retail prices, please refer to the DeepCool website or contact your local DeepCool sales representative.

The precision-machined convex base and six heat pipes that run along two high-density fin-stacks help the AK620 outperform with 260 W of heat dissipation power

Got the AK 620, and it's frosty.
Overclock to 4.8GHz with 3400MHz RAM on 5600x and it stays below 75 °C touching 80 °C for split seconds on all core load. Ambient is 30-35 °C. Voltages were left on auto. I did botch the mounting process, so am sure repasting will yield much better results.

I have half a mind to throw in 2700x in again and test it, but that is for the day when I can have some time off.

Also, the cooler is really well build, it is right up there in terms of quality and finish with the likes of Noctua, fans are whisper quite as am sure a 5600x cannot stress them enough even with 100% load (I tried). Over all, pretty happy with the purchase and absolute steal for the price.

It's really nice to see how the fit and finish of low-cost air coolers is improving in recent years. The performance of that dual tower is also reportedly very good.

Looks cheap, which is absolutely fine if it is actually cheap.

These are only renders, sadly which means there's no way to tell from a press release what the actual quality and therefore performance is like. Assuming it's in line with DeepCool's other stuff, quality and performance should be fine.

Competition is pretty fierce down at the low end though, with ID-Cooling and SilentiumPC offering some impressive stuff at the ~$25 mark...

oh by the way we have this other cooler ...
Like the dual cooler was added to this PR as an afterthought, it looks like it doenst have the same memory clearance at the AK400.

Yup it looks fine.

I don't understand why they're using a render. Maybe it's just me but when I see a render I think there are two possible scenarios for using a render instead of the actual product.
  1. The actual product doesn't look good enough to photograph. Perhaps poor tolerances, surface finish issues, bad alignment of parts, or uneven plastics due to injection moulding shrinkage to name a few possible issues.
  2. The actual product isn't ready yet and final production samples don't exist.
Either of those two options are bad and therefore companies who hide behind rendered images of their products always arouse suspicion.

Yeah that was a total surprise, as I've thought that Deepcool only makes cheap crap for budget builders.

Sucks that this AK400 doesn't support the good ol' LGA1366, I'd love to get a good air cooler on my 2nd PC.

They used to make cheap stuff a long time ago, but have since stepped up their game massively. They now make a lot of legit high-quality stuff that rivals all the big names (Noctua etc.) but they manage to do it at a lower cost. I've been using their coolers and fans for many years now. Some of their PSUs are even top-tier units, made by some of the same OEMs used by other brands for their high-end PSUs.

The saying usually goes; "you get what you pay for", but with Deepcool, I find myself telling people to not be fooled by the lower prices because they actually offer really solid products. They are one of the more underrated PC components companies out there, but I'm glad to see them finally getting some much deserved recognition. :)

Actually, render don't do justice to the real product which looks and feel much better in hands...it's almost 1.4KG in weight and finish is top-notch.

Yup. that's a third reason not to use a render instead of the actual product.... so I still don't know why they do it.
