Looks really cool and is overkill for the build (considering no OC). CPU temp on idle is ~30 C. Will report back after testing under load. However, the case doesn't have the best airflow, so it's not a terrible loss.
My i5 6600k overclocked runs ice cold because of this thing, it is incredibly quiet and efficient and most importantly, it looks super cool!
You can definitely hear the pump noise when inside a room when you close all windows and doors. Other than that it works decently well with a moderate OC.
1 Star off for no AM4 bracket. Other than that seemed like a well built cooler and would have been 2 points off if not for the amazing customer service received when inquiring. Deepcool has my continued business just because of support.
Seems fairly quite. Standard temperatures around 35-40 c
A very simple cooler to install since it is a closed off loop. It keeps my i5-4670K at around 25 degrees C at idle, is very quiet, and looks stunning, especially with a white themed build. It has a light on the cooler that pulses on and off so make sure to have a case with a window to see it.
So far doing it’s job keeping cool the 8700K, I had to change the stock fan for the Noctua Slim fan because wouldn’t fit. Pump is quiet. Radiator thickness is perfect for this case
I don't need liquid cooling. I'm not overclocking, and I don't tax my system, so the basic Ryzen air cooler is perfectly suitable for my needs. So I decided not to use it, and instead spent extra money just to pretty up the board. The exhaust fan that came with the case has a blue LED ring (and I don't want blue, at least not all the time), and the fan header is at the bottom of the motherboard, so the fan cord was hung down over my pretty white cracked PSU shroud, so I wanted to ditch it. So I decided to use an AIO, which could use the CPU fan headers. The Deepcool Captain is pretty. I went with the 120 because (1) I don't even need that much, and (2) if I used a 240, I would have had to remove the sound-suppressor panels on the top of the case, which would have made it louder. I don't like louder. But ask me how pissed I am that the cooler I received is the mirror image of the one I ordered, so that the hoses had to be contorted into a clockwise death spiral over the pump to fit the radiator on the case back, instead of pleasantly curving toward the top of the case without blocking the view of the pump as I had intended when I ordered it. Deepcool, this totally sucks.
Liquid cooler that does what it's supposed to do. One of the best looking ones on the market.
Looks great, and it handles my 8700K pretty well, even under load. It lost a star for not having the ability the change the Lighting on the block, which is a constant Breathing pattern.
