LS720 WH Overview
Out of the box, the LS720 WH is a pretty basic looking AIO, aside from it being white. I tend to receive and review AIOs that are mostly black, but that’s not to say that white models don’t exist, they just don’t seem to be as numerous. From a quick look, there isn’t really anything that stands out about the LS720 WH, aside from the color. That’s not to say that this cooler doesn’t look good, there just isn’t anything too noteworthy about the overall design. As we mentioned earlier, the LS720 WH is a 360mm AIO cooler, though DeepCool does offer smaller versions if you need a 240mm or 120mm solution. DeepCool has paired up three of their 120mm FC120 ARGB fans with a 27mm thick 360mm radiator. With the overall look out of the way, let’s take a closer look at the individual components of this AIO.
First up we have the aforementioned 360mm aluminum radiator. At just 27mm thick, the radiator on the LS720 WH is on the thin side of what we have seen from other manufacturers, but we will see if that has any effect on the cooling performance a little later on.
With 22 fins-per-inch, the tight fin density is able to provide adequate surface area while still confined to a 27mm thickness. The 120mm FC120 ARBG fans included with this AIO have a static pressure rating of 3.27mm-H2O, and should provide plenty of airflow through the radiator.
The entire radiator exterior is painted white to match the rest of the cooler, and on the tubing side of the radiator is a small green DeepCool logo on one side of the endcap.
On the other side of the tubing endcap is a round plastic cap of sorts that provides support for the anti-leak solution that DeepCool notates on their product packaging. This cap covers an internal pressure-relief bag that will compress when the internal pressure of the cooler increases due to the rise in heat with cooler use. As the bag compresses, this will allow the internal volume of the cooler to increase, thus reducing the internal pressure that can cause a leak. All that said, DeepCool does go on to note that if the system’s critical level is passed (no details on when that might happen), a leak could occur. Not something I want to read if I’m considering this purchase. This almost feels like DeepCool had good intentions of solving a possible problem, but introduced another potential issue with their solution.
Each braided cooling line exits from one end of the radiator’s end cap, and these lines are connected to the radiator via crimped connectors. I found the cooling lines to be quite flexible during installation, and their 410mm length seemed to be just right to provide flexibility during installation, while also not being so long as to be in the way.
DeepCool has also provided two plastic tubing clips to help wrangle the tubing, and each has the DeepCool name stamped on it.
Taking a look at the CPU water block and pump combination unit, you can see where DeepCool came up with the Infinity Series name. Sort of. With multiple ARGB LEDs to light up the cooler and add to the effect, simply putting a mirrored-finish on your cooler doesn’t make it have the “infinity look”. That being said, I do like the mirrored look, despite it being a fingerprint magnet. DeepCool makes note of three major features of their fourth generation pump: improved flow, three-phase motor, and a thick copper base.
Making contact with the CPU heat spreader is a copper base with plenty of surface area to make contact with large CPUs. Sitting on top of that CPU block is the pump that DeepCool claims to run at a max of 19 dBA, which is a bit higher than other AIOs we have tested. Running at right around 3,100rpm, the pump utilizes a standard 3-pin fan connector to supply its power. Unfortunately DeepCool doesn’t provide any specifications to pair to their claim of improved flow.
Taking a look at the pump and reservoir combo from the top down, we see a rounded square design with a mirrored top plate with a second elevated mirror featuring a small DeepCool logo.
Also included with the LS720 WH is a second cap to the combo that can be customized with a design of your choice. While this option is nice, DeepCool doesn’t provide much assistance for customizing the cap, other than a very basic PDF with some dimensions and sample images. That said, it’s cheaper than a fully customizable LCD screen, though not as versatile. The material surrounding the pump housing is a satin white plastic that provides a clean look to the unit. Both the inner and outer ARGB LED lighting arrays can be controlled via a compatible motherboard and software. If not connected to a motherboard the LS720 WH will default to a rainbow effect.
Making my way around the cooler, exiting from the right side we have the two cooling lines. Each line is paired up with a swiveling fitting to make installation and fitment much easier than with fixed connections. The entire pump and reservoir housing is surrounded by the same satin white plastic. Unfortunately, the swivel fittings and the portion of the pump the connect to are black plastic, which really takes away from the all-white look of this cooler. Just to the side of the connections is where the lighting and power cables exit the housing.
Taking a look at the underside of the cooler, we see a copper cold plate, secured to the pump via 10 screws.
DeepCool has implemented pre-applied thermal paste with the LS720 WH, and it was evenly applied across the majority of the smooth copper base.
Included with the LS720 WH are three of DeepCool’s FC120 120mm fans. With an operating range of 500-2250rpm, and up to 85.85CFM of airflow, these nine-blade fans should provide plenty of power when paired with the 360mm radiator. Each fan features multiple ARGB LEDs, which work to illuminate the semi-transparent fanblades. The all-white design of the FC120 fans is continues at each corner of the fan, where a rubber mount is placed to reduce vibration and noise output of the fan. Additionally, the interconnecting fan connections and cables are also all white.
Speaking of those interconnecting cables, the FC120s feature the ability to daisy chain to one another, reducing the overall cable management needed with this AIO. This is a pretty handy feature, though the custom connections do pose some limits on how the fans connect to the rest of your build. Thankfully DeepCool provides all of the adapters needed to supply lighting and power to the fans in this kit.
