Deepcool Castle EX AIO Liquid CPU Coolers
14 November 2019
Deepcool Castle EX liquid coolers are an excellent choice when you're in the market for a CPU cooling solution that has every base covered, from a custom-engineered pump and radiator assembly to addressable RGBs along with high compatibility. These all-in-one liquid CPU coolers are specially designed to provide efficient and silent cooling for modern PC builds. The latest addition to the product line includes the Deepcool Castle 240EX and the Deepcool Castle 360EX.
Exclusive Anti-Leak Tech
Imagine what it would be like to have your computer's expensive motherboard, CPU, and other components rendered useless by coolant leakage. Coolant leakage disasters make novice system builders cautious about adding liquid CPU cooling solutions to their PC builds, despite the often-touted benefits. Deepcool's innovative Anti-Leak technology seeks to address this concern.
Anti-Leak Tech makes its debut in the Castle EX series. The radiator in these coolers come equipped with a pressure-relief valve made of high-quality corrosion-resistant and heat-resistant EPDM rubber. One end of the valve is dipped into the coolant, while the other end is exposed to air. When the coolant's temperature increases, the pressure inside the valve also increases. When the atmospheric pressure reaches the critical level, the valve automatically deflates, releasing hot air and relieving pressure. The cooling cycle then repeats as you use your computer. With Deepcool's Anti-Leak Tech, you no longer have to worry about leaks caused by excessive pressure build-up. Learn more about Deepcool's Anti-Leak Tech on their site.
High-quality pump and durable tubing
While single-phase motor pumps do well, three-phase motor pumps perform even better. Castle EX liquid coolers feature a silent yet powerful 3-phase, X-life motor that helps transfer heat from the CPU waterblock to the radiator where the included fans can help cool down the radiator. The Castle EX liquid coolers feature flexible yet strong, sleeved tubing for easy installation.
Before transferring and expelling heat from the CPU, it has to be absorbed first. For effective heat absorption, the copper water block included in Castle EX liquid coolers comes with 25% more skived fins. Its considerably dense architecture allows it to absorb and transfer heat more efficiently compared to previous water-cooling solutions.
TF 120 S fans
Depending on the variant, you get to have either two (Castle 240EX) or three (Castle 360EX) TF 120 S fans for the radiator. These 120mm fans come with nine two-layer blades. Each fan can spin at a minimum rotational rate of 500 RPM when silence is a priority. Maximum airflow goes up to 64.4 CFM, and air pressure tops at 2.33mmAq when the fans max out at 1800 RPM. Hydrodynamic bearings, rubber pads, and a frame designed for maximum airflow keep acoustics equal to or below 32.1 dB(A).
The pump comes with Deepcool's world-renowned Infinity mirror. The Infinity mirror comes with addressable RGB LEDs that are compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, Razer Chroma RGB, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome Sync. A spare logo chip comes included so you can stick and use your very own logo. The immersive RGB lighting is controllable by either a 5V motherboard header or the included controller. Bundled RGB lighting effects include: Dynamic, Static, Breathing, Comet, and Fashion Collision.
The risk of coolant leakage is the reason why CPU air cooling is still preferred by some system builders. But with Deepcool's Anti-Leak Tech, their Castle 240EX and 360EX liquid CPU coolers aim to reduce those coolant leakage fears.
