Performance


Stock

This product sits almost exactly where we would expect a 240 cooler to be. Admittedly with the top end temperature at 61C, this is towards the higher end of 240 coolers we have recently seen, but given that the variance is only around 1-3C between the majority of the range we have tested, we think it fair enough to say that this cooler performed well. We were particularly impressed with the idle temperature which at 25c is amongst the lowest we have seen.

Overclocked

One of the main perks of an AIO system is the potential they can offer for system overclocking. As such the Gamer Storm Captain 240EX RGB does a decent job in the temperature figures. With a top temperature of 72c, this again performs within a block range of 1-3c variance of performance. Compared to others in that area though, this cooler outperforms them on idle temperatures and gives impressive figures for gaming.

Stock Acoustics

This isn’t the quietest cooler we have ever seen, but based on many 240 coolers, this performs better than most. At most levels, this outperforms many we have seen recently including the Antec Mercury and ID-Cooling Auraflow. It should be noted as well that this product hasn’t been designed specifically with quiet running in mind, but despite that, I did not find it intrusively loud at any point.

Overclocked Acoustics

This doesn’t do quite so well regarding noise when overclocked, and it was one of the louder coolers we have reviewed. It is, however, still a lot quieter than others and based on the heavy overclocking we use in our testing we feel that the results are a fair reflection again of a product that was not designed with silent running as a key factor.
