The Deepcool Gamer Storm (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

In Figure 8, you can check the six heatpipes. They are soldered to the base of the cooler.

In Figure 9, you can see the base of the cooler. Altough the aluminum fins and the copper heatpipes are nickel-plated, the bottom part of the base isn't. It, however, features a mirror-like finishing.

In Figure 10, you can see the fan that comes with the Gamer Storm. It has a four-pin connector, meaning that this fan is compatible with PWM automatic speed control. Just by touching this fan you can tell it is not a regular model: the whole frame is completely covered with a rubber layer, which helps to absorb vibrations and gives the fan a top-shelf looks.

In Figure 11, you see some accessories that come with the Gamer Storm. There is an adapter that allows you to connect it directly to the power supply, and another one that also connects it to the power supply, but feeding the fan with +7 V instead of +12 V, making the fan to spin slower. A "Y" connector allows you to connect two fans to a PWM output of your motherboard. You can also see the small thermal compound syringe.
