The Deepcool Gamer Storm heatsink is a tower cooler standing over 155mm tall and weighing upwards of 1189 grams. At its heart are no fewer than six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and 48 aluminum fins. This is a hefty CPU cooler geared towards tackling thermal loads of up to 150W, with the minimum noise output its Beijing-based manufacturer can muster.
As with DeepCool's other recent heatsinks, the Gamer Storm ships with a novel new fan that skips the whole rubber-fan-post fad and instead comes clad in a resilient layer of rubber.
