Quoted from DeepCool Gamer Storm Reviews:Check out these quotes from DeepCool Gamer Storm reviews & previews
"Bottom line - Deepcool's Gamer Storm heatsink offers great performance on both Intel and AMD synthetic thermal test platforms at full fan speed, and not more than average performance when running at its quietest fan speed. When compared to the 216 other heatsinks in Frostytech's Intel reference chart above, the Gamer Storm sits just 4°C off the current best performer. Of the 27 heatsinks that do offer cooler results, just five models have a similarly low noise output."
"In short, the Deepcool Gamer Storm CPU cooler is a very quiet, good-performing, high-quality CPU cooler. A pity it doesn't have a good cost/benefit ratio."
"Overall, the Deepcool Gamer Storm is a very good performer, beating the Noctua NH-U12P by a slight margin and maintaining a relatively small footprint. Installation is easy, though could be improved for multiple uses on LGA1366 systems. The base is mirror polished, which is hard to find in stock form, and the heatpipes are staggered so that there is less airflow blocked from other heatpipes. The only thing that I feel this cooler lacks is that it only comes with one fan, and could offer a slight bit more performance in a push/pull configuration. Available at $70 right now on Amazon, it is a little more pricey than some other coolers in its category. However, the small footprint and very thoughtful engineering makes it worth it, so I will not list this as a con."
"So, all said and done, these fans are pure winners. The heatsinks can handle some serious heat if they are outfitted with a strong enough fan (or dual Deepcool fans for great temps and low noise). However, better cooling solutions can be found for less money, a problem compounded by the fact that two fans are required to sufficiently cool a highly overclocked processor. So the price is on the high side here, but the tradeoff is you get gorgeous and tasteful styling with almost silent operation. What matters more is up to you, but we think the price premium is worth it when you look at what you get in return."
"The DeepCool Gamer Storm clearly has some of its own features which make it stand out from the rest. Both the packaging and cooler look great in terms of aesthesis, but don’t perform as well as expected. For a CPU cooler going for around $70 online, I would expect more from this, but we only experienced average results."
