Deepcool Gamer Storm Assassin II - Upgrade ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I was no happy with my Kraken x41 performance and noise so I told a friend that i will sell it and he wanted it for gpu cooling since he has x61 cooling the cpu in his system. 
So I went on a hunt - i did not liked any of the AIO coolings because of my damn ears i can hear the fricking pump sound on every model i tried.

so after consulting some forums came up with the AIO killer 1.4kg bricks like Noctua NH-D15, Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 and Deepcool Gamer Storm Assassin II sadly only one available was Assassin II and it was on sale bundled with deepcool 12cm fans so i grabbed it and it arrived yesterday after installing the system and testing i wanted to share some pics and tests for you to check out.

You are one of a growing number of people I see coming back to air after using CLCs. It's almost always because of noise, but I've also seem many 2-3 years old not cooling like they should .. usually it's pumps not moving enough coolant because of wear.

Definitely quite warm with Assassin being a little warmer, but 28c is definitely high ambient. thumb.gif
We can assume when temps come done to low 20s in about a month CPU will be 6-7c cooler too. biggrin.gif
You might check your cooler intake compared to room. Cooler intake is usually several degrees warmer than room .. 2-3c is very good and 10-15c is very common. If cooler intake is warmer, "Ways to Better Cooling" link in my sig might be of interest. 1st post is index, click on topic to see it. I suggest starting with 5th one.

Tipically top air is about 20% lower priced than CLC .. quieter running and cooler at about the same .. even better when both are running at same noise level. wink.gif

Checked reviews and it was in 1-2 Degree C range of NH-D15 and sadly dont have access to noctua in Turkey.

Prices are For X41 is 175$ in Turkey

Prices for Assassin II 100$ in Turkey + 3x Deep Cool UF120R Each 15$ = Total 145$ for All System Cooling (silently)

Sold the X41 to a Friend for 150$ with its original fan. and ate 5 Dollar Doner Kebab at the local shop tongue.gif

I learned it in the end AIO cooling is fine looking gets you lower idle temps but on load most of the air coolers are better in the long run.
After using 120mm, 240mm, 120mm thick and 140mm thick rads they all come to and end want more cooling you get more noise in AIO water Cooling even with push pull and static pressure fans.

and living in a hot country unless i got a custom water cooling or a 280mm rad - I think staying with Air Cooling Bricks will be the best idea.

now checking your ways to better cooling topic but my problem with my case is that I have haf evo xb with mesh top not glass - if i get glass top i can keep the air pressure and intake - out levels in more stable level other than with mesh having it like an open case.

Thanks for your responses

Glad you are not my 'friend'. tongue.gifbiggrin.gif
People pay crazy money for CLC. If you want to get into real water cooling there are the Swiftech and EKWB AIO that are not CLC and have good quality components. Don't know if they are available there.

If you have a simple wired remote sensor indoor/outdoor themometer (2nd & 5th topics show what I use) you can check your cooler intake air temp. You may have cooler air into cooler than I think. Your case looks like it should flow pretty good. pretty good. I would like to try one.
