Excellent Aesthetic Design, Good Performance, Easy Installation, Did I mention it looks great?


This is easy liquid cooling that not only looks great, but performs well without sacrificing sound levels very much in the process. The minor updates on the EX series add a lot to the final finish.

I’m no Disney Princess, but I can officially say dreams come true. From the moment I saw the first Captain series of CPU coolers, I’ve dreamt of getting my hands on one. Well, that’s become reality now and we even have the upgraded version to put through the paces this time around. The Captain already did an excellent job of changing the way we look at CLCs, but the EX series adds some great aesthetic improvements to really top the look off. The only thing left to find out is if there’s some good performance behind those fancy looks.

Gamer Storm Logo

DEEPCOOL is the parent company behind the GAMER STORM branding. The last time we took a look at one of their products was with an air cooler almost three years ago. Needless to say, they’ve come a long way since then. I love talking about the Captain series, but GAMER STORM has numerous products that look completely awesome and you should certainly check out what they have to offer. We’ll begin looking closer at the Captain 240EX right after seeing a quick word from the company themselves.

    Personally I’d like to see more AIO manufacturers use standard G14 fittings giving us options to upgrade the loop by adding more rads and perhaps vga blocks.
