FX 8320 GAMMAXXIMUM COOLING!!!

Devin W., Newegg
25 June 2015
  • Summary: If you're on the fence about buying this then go ahead and jump off and get in the neighbors pool because this thing is definitely worth it. DEEPCOOL scored with this cooler!
  • Pros: This cooler is super quiet. I had to look in my case to make sure the fan was running the first time I turned it on. It keeps my FX 8320 at 15c idle and around 25-30c while gaming with the pre-applied thermal paste. It was easily mounted inside an NZXT Guardian case without taking the Biostar TA9...

  • Pros: I was debating holding out for a liquid cooler but saw this on sale and said what the heck? I was immediately blown away by the quality of the thing, it just seems very well built and I love the machining on the heat pipes so they make direct contact and the fins aren't flimsy like others I've en...

Gammaxx 300

Zeus B., Newegg
24 May 2015
  • Summary: This is just an update to my previous review. So far I've pushed my AMD FX-6300 @ a stable 4.5GHz with this cooler running prime95 for at least an hour. Best bang for the buck CPU cooler and I'm looking forward to their next generation coolers!
  • Pros: Quiet Keeps cpu cool even at load Overclock ability+++ Price:Performance 10/10
  • Cons: Mounting for AMD is BAD! You have to use force to mount the cooler on the motherboard.

Way better than stock cooler.

Bryan H., Newegg
27 April 2015
  • Pros: Quieter and better (not to mention bigger) than stock cooler. Mounting was painless on the FX6300 with Gigabyte FML motherboard. I was glad to be able to point it the direction I wanted to. Back <<--airflow Front. Fan looks good too, and thermal paste is nicely distributed. I am really glad not t...
  • Cons: First one came broken, had to rma and use stock cooler for approx 2 weeks. This made me appreciate it even more though, because the stock cooler is so noisy by comparison. Not a star knocker because as i see it, things can always be packed better, and they can always be shipped more gently, too. ...

Easy Install

nicholas b., Newegg
21 April 2015
  • Summary: I did a little overclocking. fx6300. I got 4.1MHz never went over 58c at full load. Idle 31c.
  • Pros: Very easy to install. Took me maybe 20min. That's counting taking the stock cooler out and cleaning up the processor. Clipped right in.
  • Cons: None really. I do wish I bought the DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX S40 or they all have the same design. But with and extra heatsink. For only 5 dollars more then this one.

Fantastic for the price/ Hard to Mount

Michael A., Newegg
27 March 2015
  • Summary: Fan is Super silent does its job well cooling my CPU under heavy load worth the price! Would definitely buy again.
  • Pros: Firstly the fan is extremely silent, Keeps my FX-6300 Well under 60 under heavy load, Instructions fairly clear. 20-30 Idle 47-56 Under heavy load. Does its job well for the price, Note this is with the pre-applied thermal paste.
  • Cons: Mounting on a AMD socket requires ALOT of force to clamp on, 1-2 Hours after install idle temps sat around 54 c which worried me at first but after 4-5 hours it settled to low 20's low 30's idle. Not much else to say

Does the job

John M., Newegg
26 March 2015
  • Summary: I have 6 case fans, temps reported are all in this case with 6 fans. The temps were also recorded while running Windows 8 and are reported in celcius. I dual boot Ubuntu and it ran a bit cooler.
  • Pros: I have an AMD FX-8350 (4.0 Ghz 8 core 125W) which I expect to run hot. The stock cooler kept it around 42-46 degrees celcius at idle and anywhere from 55-65 while gaming. I saw it go to 67 once and chose to stop playing the game. This cooler keeps idle temp at 34-37 with my processor, in my case....
  • Cons: None at all

DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 300 CPU Cooler

Donald L., Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Summary: I didn't expect a cooler of that price to perform so well, it was a pleasant surprise. I will certainly consider the brand again.
  • Pros: Very good price, good quality. Runs quietly with AMD 8-Core 3.5GHz 125W. Thermal paste pre-applied, and it was just the right amount.
  • Cons: None so far

  • Pros: Really don't know where to start. Easy set up if your used to amd clips, the cooling factor is amazing. Installed with an fx6300, and gtx 960ftw, after benchmarking, running skyrim with mods for a few hours, and ended the day with a few hours of starcraft 2, all at max/near max settings in 1080, ...
  • Cons: It's pretty large in height, heatsink misses my case side my less than half an inch. Standard mid atx case.
