Deepcool is at it again with its funky-looking liquid cooling pump-and-block combos. Nary a month after showing the refined Captain EX cooler to the world, the company's now taken that all-important step for popularizing a product: adding RGB LED lighting. Say hello to the Deepcool Captain EX RGB closed-loop liquid cooler.
Whereas the regular Captain EX is clad in a black-and-red finish, the RGB edition goes for an entirely-black look. That is, until you turn on the blinkenlights. Deepcool integrated an RGB LED strip into the waterblock itself, making it look like something belonging in the chest of a robot in a mecha anime—not a bad look at all. The waterblock is attached to a wired remote control with mode, speed, and brightness switches. If you prefer controlling your lights with software, Deepcool throws an RGB control header in the box that's compatible with Asus' Aura Sync.
The Deepcool Captain EX will command PCs in June. It'll be available with two radiator sizes and price tags: $100 for the 120-mm model, and $130 for the bigger 240-mm unit.
