...Deepcool's striking pump design and anti-leak assurance make the Castle 240 EX an intriguing proposition.
Deepcool has expanded its range of anti-leak liquid coolers with the introduction of the Gamer Storm Castle 240 EX, priced at $120.
The key highlights include a patented pressure-relieving radiator, dual TF120S PWM fans and an improved pump design that's more efficient, even easier on the eye and customisable courtesy of an interchangeable logo.
Plenty to go by, but advancements in the latest air coolers are such that liquid all-in-ones no longer command the charts. Deepcool's unique design helps the Castle 240 EX stand out from the crowd, but given the absence of RGB fans, a $120 asking price may serve as an obstacle in what is a hotly contested marketplace.
Bottom line: it could be quieter under load, but for those wanting a cooler that looks the part, Deepcool's striking pump design and anti-leak assurance make the Castle 240 EX an intriguing proposition.
