The front of the Deepcool GAMMAXX L240 box shows a large image of the cooler, and details of the RGB lighting. As the cooler utilises a standard 4-pin RGB internal header, it is compatible for ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome software.
The rear of the box provides a full breakdown of the cooler’s specification.
Opening up the box we find a set of installation instructions, mounting hardware for current AMD and Intel sockets and a number of cables for connecting everything up.
To get both the fans and CPU block LEDs connected, a proprietary 3-pin splitter is included with enough headers to accommodate up to four RGB devices, while a 4-pin RGB header adapter is also included. Rather than including a simple PWM fan splitter, you actually receive a rather fancy four-port PWM fan hub instead.
Taking a look at the included 120mm fans, it’s a little clearer that some cost saving has been employed. The plastic frames for the fans do feel a little cheap, with a small amount of flex to them when you put them under pressure.
You also won’t find any cable braiding, or even rubber isolation pads to help with vibration dampening. Both fans feature a 9-blade design, and run at speeds between 500 – 1800 RPM.
The cooler itself does feel a little lightweight and the CPU block features a similar shape and design to the Deepcool Castle 240. It’s a similar style pump, being just a little shorter, with a mirrored reflective top and the GAMMAXX logo visible.
It is nice to see that although some sacrifices have been made with the L240, they are only in areas which are really not that noticeable. Attention has still been given to the parts of the cooler you are more likely to see through your system’s window, such as the CPU block and cooler tubing.
