Deepcool Captain 240 EX AIO Water Cooler Review

Today we will be taking a look at Deepcool’s latest water cooling kit. It’s an all-in-one (AIO) CPU cooler under the name of Captain 240 EX. The reviewed version will be the white Captain 240 EX, a kit based on a 240mm radiator which should fit to nearly every ATX size PC case and many smaller.

Captain EX has also fresh and unique design what should satisfy even the most demanding users. Not many AIO water cooling kits are offered in white color and even less with additional lighting. Here we have all in one interesting package.

High performance, great looks and silent work … sounds great! How will it perform? What does it really looks like?  … We will find out on the next pages of this review.

Did you use the included PWM splitter? I installed this kit but was weary off of using two fans off of one header over prolonged use, so i have the fans on two different PWM headers being controlled by a custom fan curve with Speedfan. Which header did you put the fans on and which header did you put the pump on?

I was using fan hub as I didn’t have enough fan headers on the motherboard. Everything was connected to the black headers but I don’t remember the order. Speed was the same on all of them.
