PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)




I have to say, I was somewhat disappointed with the supplied 120mm fan. I had high design expectations seeing how the fan from the Gamerstorm cooler was extremely unique and innovative. It had a rubber frame compared to the standard plastic frames other companies use and while this frame is plastic, it just looks and feels like cheap plastic. The same goes for the fans blades. It does have a blue LED which looks nice but I'd much rather have the fan look like it's high quality rather than just look good. Hopefully it will perform well and won't be too loud.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



The DEEPCOOL Killer Whale CPU Cooler testbed consisted of the following hardware. (Note: My test bed recently underwent some changes. I used a different motherboard and made the switch from an Antec 300 to Open Air. All cooler have been re-seated and re-tested)


•  AMD Phenom II X4 965 (Stock and Overclocked 3.6Ghz 1.45V)

•  ASRock M3A770DE

•  2X2GB Patriot DDR3 1333MHz

•  MSI 9800gt 512mb

•  Seagate 7200.10 250Gb

•  Hitachi P7K500 500Gb

•  Corsair VX550w

•  Open Air




When it came time to install the cooler, the first thing that had to be done was remove my motherboards stock AM3 retention bracket. Then flip the board over and align the new AMD back plate and insert the screws through the AM3 mounting holes.
