Home Reviews Coolers DEEPCOOL Captain 360 Liquid CPU Cooler Review - Featuring Reactor-Like Water Block...

AIO liquid CPU coolers are the trend nowadays. Most of the time they offer better cooling solution compared to an air cooler. They look neat and also provide better aesthetics for your (gaming) system. Deepcool, a PC chassis and CPU cooler manufacturing company, put their AIO liquid CPU cooler to the next level. They made an AIO CPU cooler that would stand out from the rest, by giving it a unique reactor-like looking CPU block. Today we are going to look at the DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm Captain 360 All-In-One Liquid CPU cooler, featuring a 360mm radiator (thus the name “Captain 360”). The company also has the smaller Captain 240 and Captain 120. According to the company the Deepcool Captain is “styled with Steam Punk appearance, built with visible liquid flow and LED lightening, offering an awesome sensation not only to your CPU cooling but also your aesthetic demand. Captain Series is sure to be your ultimate choice for computer case with side window.” Please continue reading my Deepcool Captain 360 review below and find out how good (or bad) the Captain performs.

DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm Captain 360 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Before we proceed I’d like to thank Deepcool for providing the Captain 360 for the purpose of this review.

The Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain 360 is an all-in-one liquid CPU cooler that features a 360mm radiator cooled with three special 120mm fans. As you can see from its pictures, it has a unique looking CPU water block that looks like a reactor with a pulsating or breathing red LED effect. It also has this obvious looking transparent tube that shows the liquid flow of the cooler.

The Deepcool Captain 360’s pump is composed of a three-phase induction motor built-in a closed impeller. This design is said to offer bigger power, de-vibration and lower pump noise. The pump is also composed of zirconia ceramic bearing that is rated up to 120,000 hours of running time. The base is made out of 100% pure copper with 0.2mm high-density water micro-channel that transfers the heat from the copper plate to the flowing water.

The three 120mm fans features Japanese fluid dynamic bearings with high quality IC offering lower noise level and longer lifetime. These fans are wrapped with a TPE (Thermoplastic elastomers) layer which can reduce vibration. The impeller is detachable and the fan itself is said to be dustproof, waterproof and oil-leakage proof.

The Captain 360, as well as the 240 and 120 variants, are compatible with Intel sockets LGA2011-v3, LGA2011, LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA1155, LGA1150 and AMD FM2+, FM2, FM1, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2.

I’ll discuss more of its features as we take a closer look on the cooler itself.
