Deepcool Gamer Storm Gabriel Review

With the availability of smaller and faster components, we constantly push the limits on what components we can stuff into small computer systems. The mini ITX form factor for example, is sized by the motherboard which comes in a 17 cm x 17 cm. Take a  Haswell CPU and you’ve got a pretty powerful portable gaming rig. But, how do you cool it? The Haswell CPUs run hot, especially the i7 series. The stock Intel cooler maybe able to keep that CPU under the maximum temperature set by Intel. I want a little more cooling. Many vendors have mITX cooling solutions.

Deepcool brings to the table the Gamer Storm Gabriel. Deepcool is a new comer to the US market but not to the cooling industry. Deepcool has been in business since 1996 and provides cooling solutions not only to the consumer but to the Chinese government as well. The Gamer Storm Gabriel is a low profile 120 mm cooler that boasts the power to cool down 100 watt TDP CPUs.
