Today we will be covering the recently released Deepcool CASTLE 240R AIO CPU Cooler. Why all the rage about water cooling? Well, because its just better. There are only a handful of air coolers that can compete with a liquid solution and those air coolers are very large. Let me clarify that statement, as long as the AIO is at least a 240mm rad, then you can safely assume it will out perform an air cooler. I prefer an AIO just because the performance is better. Each has its own disadvantages. Anything that has moving parts has a lifespan and on an AIO that is usually the most important part, the pump. If the water doesn’t circulate then the unit is toast. The only part that can fail on a air cooler is the fan and those can easily be replaced. An AIO cooler is widely know to have a so called lifespan because of the moving parts, liquid, and internal radiator corrosion that may occur over a long period of time, especially if you replace the liquid. So you do have a few things to think about when it come to which direction you want to go for your cooling. With all that being said the performance of an AIO over Air is worth it if you like to overclock. They also have an RGB appeal that everyone appreciates when they see them installed in a system. So in this review we cover all the details and test this against some of other AIO available out there. I really enjoy testing coolers. The results are clear and either it keeps the temps down or they don’t. We can debate the thermal paste application but as we all know if all fails, more is better (as long as it non conductive). Too much won’t hurt it but not enough can effect the temps. The only other is ambient temps. This can effect results dramatically depending on the surrounding air temps. So we take great consideration in having those temps as close as possible for every test. So until we meet again on the performance page enjoy the details and features of the Deepcool CASTLE 240R AIO CPU Cooler.
The CASTLE 240R all-in-one CPU liquid cooler enables stable operation of your high-performance Intel or AMD CPU. It effectively and quietly takes the heat away using built-in coolant, without the risk of leaking thanks to DeepCool’s Anti-Leak Technology. Both the pump head and the two fans come with RGB lighting that supports motherboard software control.
We founded Deepcool with the mission of providing the best and personalized thermal solutions for customers around the world. Deepcool was first established 1996 with its headquarters in Beijing and factory facilities in Shen Zhen that produced coolers and cooling accessories for desktops and servers. In response to rapid advancements in the PC sector Deepcool further expanded into AIO liquid cooling products, chassis, and power supplies.
We have built a global distribution network in about seventy countries, allowing end-users to purchase Deepcool products online or at the nearest local storefront. We have gained positive media exposure and coverage, and won awards from renowned professional websites and magazines like Tom’s Hardware, Techpowerup, TweakTown, HEXUS, 3Dnews, Guru3d, and CHIP, steadily building a good reputation among general users, gamers, overclockers and modders.
We are totally committed towards maintaining user satisfaction by accommodating ever-changing thermal needs while providing the most responsive and comprehensive services in the industry. Our slogan is for you to “Enjoy your cool life!” We adopted the name Deepcool since Deep Blue, a program running on an IBM supercomputer, achieved a stunning victory over Gary Kasparov, then world chess champion, in 1997. This milestone clearly demonstrated that computers have now become the most powerful tool available to the human race, and was the time when we first started our business in computer cooling solutions. We hope our products could be as effective as Deep Blue, and adopted the matching name of Deepcool to help achieve our goal.
