DeepCool's latest addition to the Gamer Storm Castle series of coolers is the 360EX A-RGB AIO. Compared to the non-EX Castle coolers, the 360EX A-RGB AIO comes with a slew of upgrades, bringing better cooling performance, enhanced RGB lighting, and an anti-leak system.
Like the DeepCool Castle 280EX AIO cooler, which we reviewed, the 360EX A-RGB features a dual-chamber pump that's capable of moving at 2550 RPM±10%. The motor used to pump the coolant has 3 phases, allowing it to operate silently with an increased flow rate. Moreover, the pump comes with a new ARGB infinity-mirror.
The surface area is also superior to that of previous-generation Castle coolers, featuring 25% more fins. To dissipate the heat, the cooler comes with 3x 120mm ARGB CF120 fans which rotate at 500-1800RPM, capable of pushing up to 69.34CFM of air at a 2.42mmAq with a maximum noise output of 30dBA.
Featuring DeepCool's patented Anti-leak Tech Inside, the new Castle AIO cooler comes with an elastic bag with one side exposed to air and the other dipped in the coolant. If the internal pressure exceeds the outside pressure, the bag increases in volume and the excessive pressure is released, reducing the risk of leakage.
Both the fans and the pump's ARGB lighting can be synchronised with most motherboards RGB software. The DeepCool Gamer Storm Castle 360EX A-RGB AIO CPU cooler is expected to be priced at $170, but an availability date is currently unknown.
KitGuru says: Considering the performance of the DeepCool Castle 280EX AIO, this one should offer a performance improvement due to the increased surface and the extra fan. Are any of you currently building a new system? Are you considering a DeepCool AIO liquid cooler for it?
