Twin Tower Heatsink
The twin tower heatsink sets provides more heat dissipation area than traditional heatsinks. More than 2 fans can be mounted on the heatsink sets to achieve extraordinary cooling performance. Shark teeth fin design not only advocates aesthetics of heatsink but also allow better air conduction between fins. The whole heatsink sets are nickel plated for appealing appearance and also for gaming spirits.

8 U-shaped Heatpipes
Eight pieces of high cooling performance copper heatpipe ensures the best cooling effect for the processor. The heatpipes are scientifically bended to achieve optimal balance with the heatsink fins.

Mirror Finished Copper Base
Eight heatpipes are firmly soldered onto the copper base to enhance the heat conductivity from the processor to the heatsink. For the quickest heat transfer, the copper base has been CNC machined to extremely flat, just like a mirror.

12+14cm De-Vibration TPE Cover Fan
De-vibration TPE cover is a soft and elastic material which can absorb the operating vibration and noise maximally. Assassin equips with one 120mm and one 140mm fans to fulfill your harsh cooling requirement at lowest noise.


Package & Hardware

Deepcool really paid attention to packaging on the Assassin as well. It has a very sleek and refined aesthetic. The Deepcool Gamer Storm logo really stands out on the stark black and looks great! The package doesn’t have very much information on the front, but it gets right to the point and does it with style.

At the rear of the box is where they included all the specifications and information on the cooler. It’s simple but gets the point across.

As you can see below the cooler is packed well and even the packing inside the box is of great quality. Deepcool didn’t cut any costs here.

Looking here we have all the hardware this cooler includes. We have the Intel and AMD hardware along with the normal hardware we see with most coolers. The fan mounting hardware included here is unique to the cooler itself and also includes extras if you are looking to add additional fans.

Here we take a closer look here at the provided 120mm and 140mm fans. The build quality of these fans is really top notch. They are the best that we have seen with any cooler. Aesthetically, the green colored fans with contrasting black casing and silver logos in the center really look fantastic.


Moving on, let’s take a closer look at the cooler.
