Tower-style heatsinks are a pretty common sight among the vast array of aftermarket cooling solutions. Today, we'll be looking at another such contender, Deep Cool's Ice Blade Pro. While hardly the most well-known manufacturer, Deep Cool has slapped a very attractive price tag on the Ice Blade Pro. Does this heatsink live up to its promise of good cooling on the cheap?

Deep Cool is a China-based manufacturer of cooling solutions. While its main business is OEM manufacturing, Deep Cool has also launched a fairly extensive line of cooling solutions. The product we're looking at today is the Ice Blade Pro, a processor heatsink.

Weighing in at over a kilogram and standing 157 millimeters tall, the Ice Blade Pro is one of the larger heatsinks we've seen. It is composed of four copper heatpipes that directly contact the processor and an aluminium fin array. Up to two 120mm fans can be mounted on the Ice Blade Pro, though only one is included.

Accessories

Other than the parts required for mounting the heatsink, Deep Cool has also bundled a small tube of thermal paste and a plastic thermal paste spreader.

The included 120mm fan pushes a decent volume of air and runs fairly quietly even at full speed. If that's still not silent enough for you, the fan speed can be brought down to 900RPM via motherboard control or a 7V adapter (not included). The fan has four blue LEDs.
