DeepCool Killer Whale CPU Cooler review -
Specifications and Features
Ok then, the DeepCool Killer Whale cooler. An exotic shaped and bulky sized CPU cooler with six heatpipes; they quickly conduct heat from the processor to protect it from overheating during stressful situations. Although this review sample that EverCool sent us is nickel-plated with a copper base block, another fully copper-plated version is about to hit the market. Why copper? The answer is simple; it improves heat conduction and offers better cooling efficiency than the other common metals, such as aluminum or nickel.

DeepCool is devoted to Green & Eco protection offering professional high quality products with innovative design and first class manufacturing. One of their recently manufactured products is the catchy Killer Whale cooler, which was made to extend their Seven Seas domination throughout our Core i7 sockets too. Contrary to other heatsinks, this product doesnt look familiar nor is it common-shaped. Thus, I must admit that we are very excited to test this Killer Whale as to appraise its value. Fasten your seat belts, grab a couple of fishing rods and lets go for whale adventures coming straight at you.
