Deepcool’s CES Display

Another cool (…hehe!) company to grace CES’s floor this year is Deepcool. Showing off some RGB (of course), some frameless fans and some watercooling, much was to be had at their booth. X marks the spot. Aluminium framed RGB fans! A closer look. An interesting design that we’d love to have a closer look at. A close up – vibration dampening corner mounts. A very unique...
