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.
Deepcool has built up its distribution network in over sixty countries all over the globe, by which end-users can purchase Deepcool products online or in their nearest local stores. 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.
We will always spare no effort to maintain customer satisfaction by serving our customer's ever-changing thermal needs and providing the quickest and most comprehensive service available. As our slogan goes, we wish you all "Enjoy your cool life!"
With the release of many exceptional cases, coolers, fans, and more, Deepcool has continued to gain popularity over the last year or so. That said, the company has been around since 1996, which is certainly a while. They have offered a wide range of products from the very beginning, paired with a drive to satisfy their customers by providing an excellent experience. With that in mind, it is no wonder the company always seems to have a new product on the horizon.
Deepcool really does offer some great products, like the Gamer Storm series of CPU coolers, which includes the Assassin and Lucifer, and the Maelstrom series of all-in-one liquid coolers. They have expanded into power supplies with the Quanta series, while also introducing cases like the Steam-punk-inspired Steam Castle. With such a strong and growing stable of exceptional products, it is also no wonder Deepcool's popularity is growing.
In today's review, I will look at the all-new Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain 360 all-in-one liquid CPU cooler (how is that for a mouthful). Unlike the Maelstrom series I reviewed some time ago, the new Captain series sets a new benchmark for looks when it comes to AIOs. Not only that but this particular model also offers a 360 mm radiator for top-tier performance. Will some fancy looks and a larger radiator propel it to the top of the charts? Let's take a closer look and find out!
Due to performance not being as expected, Deepcool sent me a new sample to re-evaluate the Gamer Storm Captain 360's performance. As such, cooling performance and noise levels were re-evaluated and added to the charts.
