Deepcool @ CES 2016: Everything is Liquid Cooled
Deepcool has made all-in-one liquid coolers and cases in the past but the most eye-catching piece in their suite involves a combination of the two. With the new GENOME AiO case, Deepcool wants to make it as convenient as possible for system builders to assemble their PC by integrating the liquid cooler into the case design, which also results in quite an eye catching combination. The GENOME is expected to be available with a $249.99 price tag when it comes out which includes the whole kit that involves the case, helix reservoir, pump/block, 360mm rad and three PWM fans. The case also includes a PCI-E extender for single video card mounting displaying the video card on the side of the windowed case.
CPU’s are not the only thing Deepcool is looking to liquid cool this year as they have attached one on a Gamerstorm power supply. The unit comes with a reservoir with quick disconnect hoses. Obviously since the internals are liquid cooled, there is no need for fans inside the power supply unit but instead uses specialized heatsinks that allow for the water to flow-through the components that need cooling. This is a modular unit PSU and it also comes with a detachable top cover (which is inviting modders to put their own spin on it).
The trend at CES 2016 for case manufacturers seem to be delivering a great budget mid-tower ATX case and Deepcool was also up to the challenge. Deepcool’s DUKASE is fresh on the market for only $69 and it is by far was the highest quality build out of all the other $69 case offerings at CES. This does not come as big of a surprise considering Deepcool is an OEM for other manufacturers and tool their own cases. The white version with black trim is new as the original announced DUKASE was in full black, but both will feature 240 radiator support at the top, built-in fan controller and windowed side panels.
Deepcool also refreshes their Captain AiO line, now featuring an updated mounting bracket, sleeved tubing, new fans and a new black and white color option as well. Pricing remains the same as the original Captain series coolers and the white version will carry $10 higher price tag.
One sure thing to catch the eye is a case mod. Present at the suite was Bill Owen’s signature Tristellar case mod featuring a blue and white color theme with the new helix reservoir mounted on it.
Alain Simpel’s Tristellar Whetstone casemod, which recently took home Bit-Tech.net’s mod of the year was even more beautiful in person.
