Final Thoughts and Conclusion

 

Deepcool has a great thing going with the Lucifer. The 140mm fan is near silent and the cooler performed very well.

 

Mounting the Lucifer proved to be a tricky endeavor best suited for case-free installs and patience.

 

RAM clearance isn’t an issue but getting to your first PCI-e expansion slot is.

Overall the Deepcool Lucifer is one helluva’ cooler (pun intended). Once you get over the tricky installation process you’re rewarded with low noise and high performance. RAM clearance is no issue at all thanks to the Lucifer’s fan mounting system, but it’s sheer size renders your first expansion slot useless. The Lucifer’s passive mode is intended for low-power CPUs and not so much for our high-end i7-3770k. Nonetheless under stock clocks it actually managed to keep our CPU under it’s Tj MAX.

I definitely wouldn’t run it there longer than just this testing but it shows that the Lucifer’s tower design works and it works well. Add to that the projected ~$40 MSRP and 2-year warranty and you’ve got a real winner. The Lucifer isn’t available at the time of this writing but I’ve been told they’re working on lining up some retailers. I have no hesitations giving the Deepcool Lucifer out Great Hardware award!
