Recently we took a close look at DeepCool’s initial offering in the AIO cooler category, the Maelstrom 120. Released under their new moniker Gamer Storm we found that although it was a decent first attempt, it left us wanting in a few areas. Mostly we were hoping for just a little more performance. Well as it happens DeepCool also offers a Maelstrom 240 AIO. This unit is the big brother to the 120, and is nearly identical aside from having a larger radiator. Could this be the answer to the performance gap the 120 left us with? Read on as we take an in depth look at the DeepCool Maelstrom 240.
Swiftech today has announced the release of the H240X all-in-one CPU liquid cooling kit. This kit follows in the footsteps of the already released H220-X CPU cooler, but features an even larger dual 140 mm copper radiator and 140 mm fans, complete with an enthusiast grade pump and water-block.
LEPA is a company you may not have heard of. They are a division of Ecomaster and are being supported by Enermax so many of their products are similar. Today we will be taking a look at one of their latest CPU Coolers the LV12. The single tower cooler comes in white or black flavors to match your hardware and features four large copper heatpipes, a 120 mm cooling fan, a louver fin design and H.D.T. (Heatpipe Direct Touch) Technology which means the heatpipes will make direct contact with your CPU.
GELID has just unveiled their latest CPU cooler, the SnowStorm. This cooler contains an optimized compact heatsink with 3 power heatpipes and a 92mm fan with PWM function. The cooler is a product of GELID Solutions SILENT product line, so as you can guess it is made to be quiet.
Deepcool entered the AiO cooling market with their Maelstrom series, which has done very well. Now Deepcool is back with a brand new AiO liquid CPU cooler series called Captain, which has a pretty unique design that we haven’t seen before on an AiO cooler.
Raijintek who we mainly know for cases and air CPU coolers have just entered the AiO watercooling market with their Triton AiO CPU Cooler. Raijintek says the Triton comes after several years of development and that they have completed the concept of the best performing all-in-one CPU cooler for enthusiasts.
If there is any line of products that I would say we here at ThinkComputers.org are most familiar with it would have to be Thermaltake AIO coolers. Over the past couple years we have reviewed nearly their entire line of products. Overall we have found them to be adequate to top level performers. And while their arsenal of self contained water coolers is formidable they have seemed to lack a stand out champion. You know a hands down performance winner across the board. And so I was certainly intrigued when we got our hands on Tt’s newest AIO entry, the Water 3.0 Ultimate. This triple 120 rad AIO is one of the first on the market and the largest AIO we have reviewed at TC. So does size matter? Follow along and find out if this can finally be Thermaltake’s all out performance champ.
Noctua today introduced several new additions to its popular A-series of premium quality quiet fans.

All models feature Noctua’s proprietary AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels and come with full 6 years manufacturers warranty.
If you haven’t heard of DeepCool by now we really can’t blame you. This start up out of Beijing, China has only recently started hitting shelves in the US. However, if you are an avid ThinkComputers.org reader you will no doubt have seen several excellent performing CPU coolers come across our pages from DeepCool. Since then DeepCool has really started to step up their game by branching into the case, power supply, and as you’ll see today, the AIO CPU cooler market. With the market so flooded with AIO’s, the hottest cooling item of today, can DeepCool’s Maelstrom 120 even make a splash? And can it possibly keep up with the years of R&D other companies have in the AIO spectrum? Read on to find out!
