DeepCool LS720 Review (Page 4 of 4)

Page 4 - Conclusion

Does the DeepCool LS720 prove that having a longer radiator and another fan will give extra cooling performance? For starters, the DeepCool LS720 did a great job at cooling my AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. The LS720 had lower idle and load temperatures than almost all the compared coolers, with only the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 280 A-RGB producing lower thermals. The cooling fans did a great job keeping the radiator cool and displaying a good amount of flashy ARGB LED lighting. Furthermore, the liquid cooler is solidly built with a clean matte black radiator. The water block has a clean copper contact base with a smooth and flat surface. The ARGB LED lighting on the water block looks great and is a nice visual touch. The logo on the water block is also rotatable, which helps even more with mounting your cooler in almost any orientation of your choice while keeping the logo upright. I also like the daisy chain cables, as it makes the cable management very clean. Installing the cooler was a very simple process thanks to the included instruction manual, which gives clear step-by-step instructions for all CPU sockets. With all that said, I do wish the fans have regular 4-pin PWM and standard ARGB cables, as these current headers limit the uses of these fans to just this cooler. Using three fans also come at the trade-off of noise output. As one might expect, the extra 120mm fan does add to the noise of the cooler, although DeepCool has kept it quite reasonable in day-to-day usage. I also wish the pump header had been a 4-pin PWM header rather than a 3-pin voltage header, so users could have better control over the pump speed, but thankfully the pump noise is still reasonable at full speed. For a retail price of about $140, this is about $20 more expensive than the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 280 A-RGB, which is a similar performing liquid cooler with better noise output. Because the DeepCool LS720 was only hotter by 1 degree in both thermal tests and does not have the radiator compatibility issue as long as you have a case that can accommodate a 360mm radiator, I would give my edge to this DeepCool LS720, even with the more expensive price.
