Alternatives to Deepcool Captain EX 240 AIO cooler?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone,

 

I wanted to know if there are any alternatives in the same price range as the Deepcool Captain EX 240? The thing is, I'm trying to build a PC with a green and black theme, and the only colors it's available in are red and white. I was thinking if there are any similar performing at the same price with black aesthetics? Like on of those corsair models, but as you can tell I haven't looked into those Corsair ones.

 

Please suggest anything :D

Thanks

I don't really feel like going into stuff with pumps and such. I basically want the same thing as the Deepcool but in black :/ Thanks for your suggestion though :D

The only reason I suggested that one to you is that you can put in your own fluid that can match the colors of your build, a green fluid would go very well.

You're right, but it's kind of a struggle having to switch out water every now and then. But a cool idea, indeed!

If you have any problems with custom liquid cooling then Jay from Jayztwocents is the person to go to for help.

@MValuableP I think basically every manufacturer on the market has a black 240mm AiO. For example the be quiet silent loop and the fractal design kelvin s24, corsair h100iv2. NZXT makes some rgb stuff. If you want something you can expand without worries look at the alphacool eisbaer 240. You could die the fluid in that green if you want, although the reservoir window is tiny..

As mentioned in a previous reply, I don't really feel like going into reservoirs and all that. I would just like a simple aio cooler for my CPU. Anything you can recommend?

@MValuableP those are all "All in ones" The only difference with the Alphacool one is that is has a system with quick connects, so you could cool your graphics card. But if you really just want an AiO, the first three are options. There is probably a dozen others, for example from Artic Cooling, Silverstone, Cooler Master and many others. The Pump technology is usually pretty similar, and they buy designs and rebrand them. The Fractal and Be Quiet ones are both made by alphacool for example.
