A big thank you to Deepcool for supplying the review sample.

Deepcool got its start in 1996 and has from then on out grown to become an industry heavyweight. The company's focus on the enthusiast DIY market has paid off tremendously, with the company releasing well-regarded cases, power supplies, heatsinks, fans, and all-in-one liquid coolers. Overall, the company has shown an ability to think outside the box, along with a willingness to try new things. When you take that into consideration, it's no wonder Deepcool has become a popular manufacturer in the DIY PC market.


In today's review, I look at the Deepcool AS500. The eagle-eyed among you may notice its appearance is similar to the Gamer Storm Assassin III with one less cooling tower, and on the surface, you would be correct. However, a closer inspection shows Deepcool has made some notable changes. First, the cooler uses five heatpipes and comes equipped with an ARGB-illuminated top plate. For those wanting to minimize noise from their system, the fan has a very quiet RPM profile. That said, a quiet cooler doesn't mean bad cooling as I have reviewed many exceptional air coolers over the years that can be considered nearly silent. Therefore, considering how well the Assassin III performed, it will be quite interesting to see how the AS500 does. So without further ado, let's take a closer look at what this latest offering from Deepcool can do.
