    This is my second build using the Deepcool 240 EX. It is easy to install, reasonably priced and works well even with moderate overclocking. It is slightly too tall for the Lian Li PC O7 case but this can be fixed with shims under the glass cover.

    Installation is a breeze, Performance is jaw dropping in comparison to a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo, which could only maintain a 4.6 Ghz Oc speed on the FX 8350. The LED pump housing a clear tube is a very nice addition behind the tinted side panel of case. With this cooler the AMD FX 8350 is running 4.8 Ghz on a 24/7 Over clock.

    Looks amazing and works amazing. I love the design of the block and how the glass tube comes out of the pump, great design.

    Update: 2 years later and this thing is still going strong. Replaced thermal paste once and the temps on i5 have been the same, and stays mis-50s range even under 99-100% load. Cannot recommend this product highly enough.

    The i5 Kaby has yet to crack 50 C. Can barely hear the fans. Best cooler for the price, hands down.

    Very visually impressive and remarkable cooling capacity, absolutely nothing to say here, Deepcool provided a solid product at a very affordable price for an AIO cooler. Props for also including AM4 brackets in all new shipped boxes!

    Looks cool, runs cool, and doesn't empty your wallet to boot (no pun intended)

    from completed build first gaming build.

    great looking. quiet. keeps cpu at 27-28 degrees at idle. nice included fan hub. easy tool less application. overall very satisfied EDIT: after like 8 monthsit decided to completely fail and pour juice all over my graphics card. card still seems to work but i haven't been able to test that since i cant run the thing. would not buy again. looking into an nzxt kraken. any better cooler suggestions that match the red and black theme? EDIT EDIT: got a thermaltake water 3.0 riing rgb 240. works well. leak did kill my graphics card. shorted about a week after the leak.

    There is an RGB version of the liquid cooler for a bit more, if that suits you better. Also, the adhesive that attaches the connector for the fan cables isng the best quality. I simply put some electrical tape on that to hold it on the back side of the case. It really just needs to be out of the way, and I don't see this as taking away the overall quality of the part.
