    Really good to see something compete with Noctua, and I'm glad for them. But I'm firmly a Noctua fanboy (er...no pun intended). I've been using them for so long, nothing has ever broken, solid performance, I've migrated their bits through several builds over the years. They're rock-solid and absolutely will always be my go-to for cooling.

    And once I contacted support about getting a spare part, they wouldn't accept money for it!

    Need to see if Gamer's Nexus does a "dB for dB" comparison... ramping up the fans to get better cooling is a tradeoff that needs to be properly considered and for many it isn't a great tradeoff. (This is part of the reason I run a 360 rad custom loop.)

    Re: Deepcool Gamer Storm Assassin III

    It's superb to see DeepCool pushing so far into the monster heatsink territory and along with bequiet! Dark Rock 4 and Noctua, you're spoiled for choice at the top end.

    And I will always be a top end Air Cooler user .. I'm not ito AIO Water cooling.

    Well done Deep Cool - there's room in this market for a monster cooler with good clearance all around it.

    But.. . seeing Noctua offering FOC mounting kits for older coolers to fit new motherboards.... that's the ultimate step towards long term customer service. That's the next step perhaps?

    That's another big boy up around 1.5kg. How much weight can modern mobos take when mounted vertically?

    Well my heat killer IV PRO head are 900 grams on its own, but its right down on the CPU so not much leverage in it.

    The Cryorig R1 Ultimate is also in the same class as those.

    Re: Deepcool Gamer Storm Assassin III

    To be fair it's prettier than the Noctua NH-D15. But I'm a Noctua fanboy. When they sent out a FREE AM4 mounting kit for a NH-D14 I purchased 5 years ago, that pretty much made me a customer for life.
