From what we have gathered in the past about GamerStorm, while they may be newer to the game than most other cooling companies, we have seen they definitely know what they are doing when it comes to cooling components inside of the chassis. Coolers like the Assassin, Lucifer, and Gabriel shows us that GamerStorm is a contender in the dual-tower coolers, large single tower coolers, and even a low-profile solution for those that don't want the larger coolers currently on the market.
In all three segments, not only do GamerStorm products do well, the company has gone from a relatively unknown company to one that has become synonymous with great performance and low noise in cooling in a very short time. For a big box store brand, color us impressed.
While we have seen the three basic CPU cooling designs produced by GamerStorm, we have yet to see where their limitations are ending. After doing a few of the CPU coolers, we were asked to take a look at something to cool our HD 7950. Knowing what we did about their previous cooling solutions, we jumped at the chance to have a look at what they bring to the table in this market as well.
Since this newer company has no issues thinking outside of the box, along with employing a few of the better tricks of the trade when developing coolers under their name, we are somewhat excited to see what this latest creation offers those who want aftermarket cooling for their GPU. Now users have the option to match the branding of their CPU air cooler and GPU air cooler.
Today, we will be looking at the Dracula from GamerStorm, and while taking on the name of a sci-fi monster, we have found that this product neither bites nor flies, and, no, it does not turn into a bat when we go to sleep. What we are given is one of the largest VGA air coolers we have ever seen. Not so much in the cooler itself, but as you all will soon see, the Dracula comes fully equipped to not only take on the cooling of almost any video card, but it is also almost a full five slots deep depending on the specific configuration of your fan setup.
With this in mind, we can only hope that the Dracula is a top contender because with a cooler this large it just has to be great, doesn't it? Well, stick around and find out as we put the Dracula from GamerStorm through its paces.
