Introduction 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. 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. Company Info Deepcool was founded with the mission of providing the best performance and humanized thermal solutions for worldwide customers. Established in 1996, headquartered in Beijing, factory was established in Shen Zhen, Deepcool originally produced desktop, server coolers and cooling accessories.

Small form factor PC builds have been very popular over the last few years and when it comes to cooling your processor with an mITX motherboard, we find very few low profile coolers on the market that perform well in small confined spaces. However, today we are going to be looking at a new lower profile CPU cooler that looks to fit the bill for not only great cooling, but also great aesthetic appeal. We have the DeepCool Gabriel CPU Cooler on the bench today and we have installed this massive low profile cooler into a very confined chassis to put the cooling feature to the test. DeepCool isn't as mainstream as some of the other manufacturers in the States, but our past experiences with DeepCool show they have released some very impressive coolers for both budget builders for high-end PC enthusiasts. Before we dive in and take a full look at the DeepCool Gabriel CPU Cooler let's talk about DeepCool.
Once upon a time laptops were "as big as a house" and equally as heavy. Today they are ultra-thin and as light as a feather, yet they have all suffered from the same design shortcomings: poor cooling and poor audio reproduction. The cooling problem becomes more of an issue when you step into the performance and gaming realm. The thermals from a high end CPU and lack of innovative cooling solutions can make for an uncomfortable combination to have sitting on your lap. The industry has made some strides in audio reproduction, but for the most part, the sound systems of even the best notebooks fall short of creating immersive experiences. Most are flat and lack range, so that even watching a Youtube video is less pleasurable. There are possible solutions to these problems in the form of standard notebook coolers and add on speaker systems. Each of those have their own draw-backs outside of not being able to address both of your problems by themselves. This is what brings us here today. We have a combined solution in the form of the Deepcool M6 notebook cooling and sound system. The Deepcool M6 combines the form and functions of a standard notebook cooler with the immersive quality of a 2.1 stereo sound system. Has Deepcool solved all of these notebook/laptop woes?
Deep Cool is a company that may not be too familiar to everyone, but they've been around for a while and have a long list of cooling products including: CPU coolers, notebook coolers, HDD coolers, GPU coolers and fans as well as several other accessories. Deep Cool was kind enough to send us their latest CPU cooler for review - the Gammaxx S40. We always enjoy reviewing CPU coolers, so let's get to it!
