The DeepCool Neptwin RGB CPU cooler goes for between 65-70 dollars Canadian on New Egg and Amazon and is often cheaper with good sales. It’s one of the more affordable twin tower coolers you can get. It includes two one hundred and twenty milometer RGB fans, six copper heat pipes, and has a twin tower design. A great bargain considering most twin tower coolers go for nearly double what DeepCool is asking for, but does it deliver the goods?

My experience with the DeepCool Neptwin RGB
As you can see by the technical spec sheet, the Neptwin RGB cooler is pretty chunky. You will want to double-check your PC case spec sheet to make sure it can accommodate a tower cooler of this size. I initially had mine in a compact case from Corsair, the Spec-Delta RGB, and it fit just fine, so it should fit in most mid-tower cases, but again, double-check to be sure. One of the deciding factors for me for getting this tower cooler was that it would fit in my case. A lot of the twin tower coolers I looked at were just a few milometers taller and wouldn’t fit in my case, where this one just barely squeaked in.
I have recently swapped out PC cases, and the DeepCool Neptwin RGB is even more impressive than before. The Corsair case I was using was a more budget/looks-focused case that struggled to provide adequate airflow, thanks to its mostly plastic front panel. The Cooler Master MasterBox NR600 case that my PC now resides in is, by contrast, a much more function over form PC case. In the old case, the Neptwin RGB performed well, it was much more capable than the stock cooler that came with the Ryzen 7 3800x. It did so while also being quieter than the stock cooler. Now that it’s in the NR600 and has proper airflow, it performs exceptionally well. With PBO enabled, the Neptwin RGB allows the 3800x to boost to 4.3-4.4Ghz, and stay there for the duration of my gaming session, something it wasn’t able to maintain in the old Corsair Spec Delta RGB.
The DeepCool Neptwin RGB isn’t the quietest CPU cooler on the market, but it does a great job of keeping your CPU cool and does so while being reasonably quiet, and overall is a great value.
Installing the Neptwin is pretty straightforward and relatively painless. Sometimes CPU coolers can be fiddly, but that wasn’t the case with the Neptwin RGB. It is a twin tower cooler, however, so ram clearance might be an issue. The tower itself stops short of being obstructed by the memory if you’re only using two DIM slots. If you’re using four DIM slots, you will want to be sure your memory is standard height and not the taller ‘fancier’ memory. If you do have taller memory but only using two dims, you should be ok. You can put the second fan on the side closest to the back of the case. On the other hand, if you have low-profile memory, you have options. You can place the fan on either side of the cooler.
The fans included seeming to be of decent quality. They have rubber pads at the corners to limit vibration. They have RGB lights that you can control via your motherboard, and they are very quiet under normal load. At full speed, they will get a bit noisy, but not terrible.
