Looks good.
What about the price?
Although deepcool products are rarely seen, I saw one deepcool cooler just like Noctua D14 few days ago.
Its nice to have more competition (!) in the market.

That's an oddball mounting setup for Intel...but I like it! For a cheap cooler it performs quite well at load too. :cool2:

I like the colors, white, silver and black look very ice together.

Hmm. Then considering its price, Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO wins due to lower pricing.

Despite the CM 212 EVO being better value, it is still nice to see other coolers filling the gap before you get to the more expensive coolers.

RAM: g.skill 8gb ares ddr3 1600
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Deluxe

Who cares about them, unless the price is low? :dunno:

My unofficial CM Hyper 212 Evo numbers on the same setup/ambient temperature:

Stock IDLE: 32°C
Stock LOAD: 55°C

Overclocked IDLE: 36°C
Overclocked LOAD: 67°C

So, it seemed to match or beat this Deepcool by 1°C.
