After the success of the LS and AK series of CPU coolers, DeepCool has taken elements from both to form the new value-oriented LE and AG series CPU coolers, promising similar performance at a lower price point.
Compatible with Intel LGA 1700 and AMD AM4/AM5 platforms, the new LE and AG CPU coolers will instantly remind you of their LS and AK counterparts. Aesthetically, they're pretty similar, using similar-looking fans, heatsinks, radiators and pump blocks.
The AG620 could be easily mistaken for the AK620 without the top covers on the two-part heatsink. A DeepCool representative said that the fans are also different with a few tweaks in place to optimise performance. This cooler is rated for up to 260W TDP.
The AG400 also looks a lot like the AK400. However, a closer look will show they're more different than it initially appears. Besides the RGB fan with 6-colour LED lighting, it also has its heat pipes more offset. That makes the heatsink and fan more centred, allowing users to install the cooler without removing the fan. This cooler is rated for up to 220W TDP.
Lastly, the LE series coolers will be available with 120mm (LE300) and 240mm (LE500) radiators. The standard model packs a similar fan to the one found on the AG400, but there's also the MARRS edition, featuring a single green LED. Regardless of the variant, all have an anti-leak technology comprised of an elastic pressure relief bag that relieves pressure in the radiator. The 120mm model can handle up to 180W TDP, while the 240mm version can handle up to 220W TDP.
