Deepcool Captain 120 EX AIO CPU Cooler Review

Rating: 7.5.

Back in July, the Deepcool Captain 240 EX featured in a 6 way round-up of mainstream AIO coolers. Today we are looking at its smaller counterpart, the Captain 120 EX. The model we were sent for review is white, though there are black and red alternatives available.

A fairly small AIO unit, even for a 120mm-sized cooler, the Deepcool Captain 120 EX ships with a single fan, plus a radiator which is only 27mm thick. For comparison, the Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 ships with two fans and a 49mm thick radiator. As such, it will be interesting to see how the Captain 120 EX compares to other 120mm and 240mm AIOs. While UK availability is limited, the Deepcool Captain 120 EX black version seems to be available for around £52.

    This is clearly a nice bit of kit and if another Fan was fitted could be a big winner according to your review….with that in mind would it not be worth another review with that extra Fan fitted….we out here in the real world would buy such a kit including that extra Fan and I believe Deepcool would ship it accordingly if it was a winner…..please look into this for we Gamers need your input….
