Great Performance, Aesthetically Pleasing, Outstanding Fan Performance.
WHAT WE DISLIKED:
Very Large, Can not use memory with tall heat spreaders.
The Deepcool Assassin II CPU Cooler is priced at $79.99 on Newegg.com. While this is on the high side, it is priced to compete with similar large Air Coolers like the Noctua D15 and others in the same class so its not outrageous.
We were impressed with the initial package of the Deepcool Assassin II CPU Cooler. Deepcool has used a back box with the Deepcool Gamer Logo at the front. We also have the Model number and some brief features of the cooler as well. It’s nice and simple and not too over the top. Sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go.
Once we are on the back side of the package, we do find a bit more detail. They have listed some at a glance specifications here.
Once inside the package we do find quite a few items. First, we have the user’s manual which is detailed with installation instructions. Then we have the cooler which has both fans already attached. We also have a PWM fan controller attachment that can control up to 4 fans. Last but not least we have our installation hardware for both Intel and AMD platforms. The hardware included will work with most of today’s modern CPU Sockets from AM3+/FM2+, Intel 1150/1155 and even 2011/2011-3.
Let’s take a look at the specifications of the Deepcool Assassin II CPU Cooler.
Moving on, let’s take a closer look at the cooler and give you a 360 view.
