Deepcool Gamer Storm Castle 240RGB Review

Packaging for the Castle 240 RGB shows off the quite large, but impressive looking CPU block on the front, and details of the dimensions of the cooler, included mounting options and connections on the rear. In the box, we find the cooler, an accessories box as well as two 120mm 4PIN PWM fans.

 

Installation instructions are included, as well as mounting hardware for current Intel and AMD sockets, as well as a number of older sockets.

There are quite a few cables for connecting and controlling the fans, and CPU blocks LEDs. The core cable is a proprietary 3 pin RGB connection splitter for connecting all the aforementioned LEDs, as well as adapter cables for connecting the cooler to your motherboards addressable RGB header.

The Castle 240 also boasts support for all major motherboard lighting software packs, Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB fusion, MSI’s Mystic lighting Sync, and ASRock’s Polychrome Sync. A SATA powered RGB controller is also included if your motherboard doesn’t support this header. You also get a PWM fan hub for connecting up to four fans.

The two 4 pin PWM 120mm RGB fans included with the castle 240 which have a wider, static pressure optimised blade design which suits the radiator application, and small rubber isolation pads are present around all of the mounting spots which should help a little with vibration dampening.
