Overall I was pretty impressed with Deepcool’s Gamer Storm Castle 240. Cooling performance isn’t class leading but it does a good job by both cooling the CPU and keeping noise in check, even under heavy load. It’s not the absolute best cooler by any means, but for £95.99 it does a very capable job.
Aesthetically I would say it’s hard to beat, it is certainly one of the better-looking coolers I have seen to date, and the lighting effects available with just the included controller are some of the best I have seen. This is largely due to the LED’s addressable nature, and if your motherboard supports an addressable RGB header its unlikely to disappoint.
The package is also well thought out, with relatively quick and easy installation, and the inclusion of lots of varied connecting cables is also a big tick in the Castle 240’s favour. Although not the best option for performance, if you are looking for an AIO liquid cooler with a bit more wow factor the Castle 240 is definitely one to consider.
The Castle 240 is currently available from SCAN for £95.99 inc. VAT HERE.
- Great looking RGB LEDs on both the fans and the very clean looking CPU block.
- The included controller offers loads of effects to choose from and some really standout effects like the spiralling colour way effects.
- Compatible with all current motherboard manufacturers software suits for further LED customisation through software.
- No smart software support for fan profiles or modes.
- Pretty middle of the road for performance when compared to other 240mm AIO liquid coolers.
KitGuru says: If you’re looking for a more unique cooler which stands out from the hoards of single colour, or outright non LED coolers available, then the Deepcool Gamer Storm Castle 240 RGB will not disappoint. It’s definitely worth considering a motherboard with an Addressable RGB header, however, if you are planning on building the Castle 240 into a new system to make full use of the gorgeous LED lighting.
