Conclusion

...though not cheap by any means, the £90 Deepcool Gamerstorm Fryzen looks good, is built well, a cinch to install, carries solid RGB lighting.

Jumping on the AMD Ryzen Threadripper bandwagon does not go lightly on the wallet. Premium pricing for CPUs and motherboards is augmented by the need to invest in a high-quality cooler capable of handling monster loads caused by having up to 64 threads running in tandem.

Though not cheap by any means, the £90 Deepcool Gamerstorm Fryzen looks good, is built well, a cinch to install, carries solid RGB lighting, and is able to keep a 4GHz/1.35V Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX cool for prolonged loads, all without making a din.

Sure, its performance is beaten by the hulking Cooler Master Wraith Ripper, which is quieter to boot, yet Deepcool's space-saving design is a definite plus if you have tall RAM or massive graphics cards.

Bottom line: competent and cool enough to tame an overclocked premium Threadripper chip, Deepcool's Fryzen is a good choice for any TR4 build.

What?
They said, “an RGB gaming cooler”….

EvilCycle
Why?
Because the same cooler without funky styling doesn't sell as well to the same crowd, and not for as much money.

Anyone with a passing interest in high-performance desktop computing can't help but be impressed with the performance of AMD's Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. Offering up to a massive 32 cores and 64 threads in one package, there's simply nothing faster.

INTEL FANBOY TROLL ALERT.

Keyboard warrior rage intensifies.
