Deepcool GAMMAXX 400
Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 is sealed in a white cardboard box with a cooler photo on the front of it:
The cooler is accompanied with three retention kits for different processor sockets, screws and washers, wire clips for the fans, thermal paste and installation instructions, as well as a quality certificate, which looks more like a bus ticket with a seal on it:
This Chinese cooler is very affordable and costs only $29. It comes with a 1-year warranty.
Although Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 looks a little more modest than the previously discussed Cooler Master product, it is also quite attractive:
It measures 159x135x76 mm and weighs 638 grams, which is as much as 4 grams less than the Cooler Master Hyper PWM 412.
Its tower heatsink is constructively similar to the Hyper PWM 412 heatsink, but it looks somewhat simpler, because of straight and narrow fins:
There are 51 fins pressed against the heatpipes, which is 10 fins more than what Cooler Master has. However, the lower fin array consists of shorter fins, which should most likely ensure that Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 doesn’t conflict with the tall heat-spreaders on the memory and mainboard VRM components, but also doesn’t lose too much of its effective cooling surface:
The fins are 0.4 mm thick and are spaced out at 1.8 mm distance from one another. Four heatpipes 6 mm in diameter pierce the heatsink in a slightly shifted pattern:
Unlike Cooler Master Hyper PWM 412, the heatpipes direct touch technology in Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 is implemented in its most traditional form. Namely, with 2-3 mm gaps between the heatpipes and corresponding aluminum inserts covering these gaps:
