The provided fans are the Deepcool 140 mm model. You’ll receive two of them. The fans have a black, plastic frame with 9 black blades. Anti-vibration pads are provided on the mounting corners, and that’s a nice bonus given the price. 


The basic specifications are listed below:

  • Fan Dimensions: 140 x 140 x 25 mm
  • Fan Speed: 400 ~ 1600 RPM +/- 10 %
  • Control Mode: PWM


As for the radiator - it’s a slim, aluminium one with many fins, so nothing that would surprise anyone. It’s 322 x 125 x 27 mm, the latter value being the thickness.



As for the pump, the look is simply good. It’s possible to customize the logo. Two flat cables come out from the side of the block:

  • 1x 3 pin for voltage
  • 1x RGB connector (plugged into the motherboard)



The Castle 280EX uses 380 mm long, flexible sleeved tubing. It’s quite a good length, even for a larger chassis. One last piece of information for this part - you can easily refill the liquid via a port on the edge of the radiator.
