Manufacturer: Gamer Storm
Street Price: GBP £109.99 / USD $119.99

We looked at the Gamer Storm Castle 240 RGB a little over a year ago and since then some subtle but welcomed changes have been made, today we look at the Castle 240EX.

One of the biggest additions is their anti-leak system. Deepcool have been developing this anti-leak technology for three years now and are pushing it hard on their latest AIO cooling loops, hopefully taking away one of the biggest risk factors of putting, what is essentially, a quantity of conductive liquid into your system. The anti-leak mechanism works by incorporating a rubber ‘bung’ into the radiator where the elastic properties of the rubber can accommodate for pressure, and therefore volume, changes within the loop.

Other changes include Deepcool removing the RGB 120mm fans and replacing them with black TF120 S fans, as well as being able to change the orientation of the Gamer Storm logo within the pump enclosure.

RGB lighting remains on the pump housing, with support for GIGABYTE’s RGB Fusion Sync, ASRock’s Polychrome Sync, MSI’s Mystic Light Sync and ASUS Aura Sync.

Within the pump enclosure is a stronger motor featuring a pressure charging impeller that’s driven by 3-phase power, along with rounded internal corners and a double chamber design for all-round improvements within the pump.

With the removal of the RGB fans, you’d typically expect the price to drop but it’s risen by £15 in the UK and a similar amount in other markets, so what do we get for the extra money? Let’s find out.

Deepcool on the Gamer Storm Castle 240EX:
CASTLE 240EX is equipped with Deepcool’s exclusive Anti-leak Technology. The technology helps the system achieve an automated pressure balance, which will significantly improve operation safety of AIO liquid cooling systems.
With this technology, Deepcool is setting a new standard for liquid cooling systems.
