While not a household name in North America, Deepcool is a large and aged manufacturer well-known in the rest of the world, producing a variety of different products for both themselves and as others as an OEM. Gamer Storm is a sub-brand they use for their high-end cooling solutions, mainly consisting of CPU coolers and colorful case fans. For watercooling, they offer several models up to 3 x 120 mm in size. The Maelstrom 240 is a middle of the road option, featuring a dual 120 mm radiator. Recently we tested two liquid coolers in particular that impressed us, the NZXT Kraken X61 and Swiftech H240-X. Let's see if Maelstrom 240 can follow their footsteps.

Maelstrom 240 box and packaging.


The Maelstrom 240 is uses an Asetek design similar to almost all other manufacturers, complete with the familiar round base, and a radiator measuring about an inch thick. The twin red/black 120 mm fans provided to exhaust the heat out of the case have a rubber rather than plastic housing, presumably to reduce vibration. As per usual, the contents are packed in a cardboard carton with compartments cut out for the odd shape of the cooler, fans, and accessories. Also included in the package is an assembly guide, a 4-way PWM fan hub with an adhesive strip, and all the necessary mounting hardware including a universal backplate. The cooler uses a more robust metal assembly system than some similar models which utilize a plastic scheme.
