PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH




The included fan is a very nice looking 9-blade 120x120x25mm PWM fan (meaning it can be controlled via software). One unique thing about this fan is that instead of using a plastic frame it uses a rubber one to keep the vibrations to a minimum. The fan is kept together with The fan itself uses a hydro bearing type with speeds of 500-1500RPM, giving out a maximum airflow of 66.3CFM at a noise level of 17.6 to 27.6dB(A). The power input of the fan is 1.56W with a rated voltage of 12VDC.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



The test bed consisted of the following hardware used to test the DEEPCOOL GAMERSTORM CPU Cooler

•  AMD Phenom II X4 965 (stock and 3.6GHz @ 1.4V)

•  MSI 785GM-E65

•  2X1Gb DDR3 1333MHz Corsair XMS3 / 2X2GB Patriot DDR3 1333MHz

•  MSI 9800gt 512mb

•  Seagate 7200.10 250Gb

•  Hitachi P7K500 500Gb

•  Corsair VX550w

•  Antec 300


All coolers were tested in the Antec 300 pictured above. Keep in mind that temperatures inside your case will be different, depending on the chassis, cable management, fan arrangement, and airflow.



To begin with the installation I was forced to remove the motherboard from my case then I had to remove the AMD retention bracket from my motherboard. The next step was to install the included back plate to my motherboard.




Once that was done with, I fastened the hex nuts with the screws from the back plate. The next step is to secure the retention plates to the heatsinks base with the use of thumb screws.
