GamerStorm is a company that appeared to have come from virtually nowhere, but in reality, is a subdivision of DeepCool or Logisys, depending on your global location. From what we have gathered with the three coolers we have tested from them, is that they are definitely on their "A game", and have been able to introduce some really nice products for us to test. Typically, what we have gotten from them before were coolers that can stand out in the crowd, offer top tier thermal performance, and we have yet to find one of their coolers to be paired with any sort of ear splitting fans.
We hope that tradition continues as we take a look at a new low-profile cooling solution from GamerStorm. This isn't just any fly-by-night design either. GamerStorm took the time needed to make sure the shape and design would fit almost any motherboard, and considering the proximity of other components on a Mini-ITX motherboard, this is no easy task. GamerStorm seems to have thought of everything in this design: performance, styling, and a similar mounting solution to what we found on the Noctua NH-L9i, which is super simple to use.
Today, as we look at the new Gabriel from GamerStorm, we will be putting this low-profile cooler through its paces. Considering we are now testing with an i7 4770K, I don't have the highest of hopes for the overclocked testing, but I have been surprised many a time before with coolers that don't look the part, but once asked to perform, they can readily handle themselves. Let's hope this new Gabriel, and all that went into it, is worth the effort, because not any cooler can go into a Mini-ITX chassis and survive the rigors of what customers want to do with them.
Since the testing is already done at this point, and I have seen what the Gabriel is capable of, I will just say this: I have seen quite a few solutions to this segment of CPU cooling, and very few impressed me like the GamerStorm Gabriel has done.
