Deepcool AK500: Cooler for processors with TDP up to 240W

DeepCool has started shipping the Deepcool AK500 CPU cooler. It is suitable for the most powerful desktop CPUs, whose TDP level reaches 240W. Plus, it was initially adapted not only to existing processor systems but also to the promising AMD AM5.

Deepcool AK500 is made in a traditional tower form factor with a single 120mm fan. Due to the use of a hydrodynamic bearing, a low noise level is achieved – up to 31.5 dB(A). The speed of rotation of the blades is 500-1850 rpm. What is the difference between a CPU and a GPU?

The fan supports the LSP operation mode, in which the rotation speed is limited to a corridor of 500–1550 rpm, and the noise level does not exceed 25.9 dB(A). At the same time, the airflow is reduced from the limit of 117 cubic meters per hour to 89. But this mode will be enough for the vast majority of desktop CPUs.

With a massive heatsink and efficient fan, Deepcool AK500 is able to handle the heat of the most powerful processors up to 240W TDP. Needless to say, even if the 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X officially develops “only” 105 watts. Even the monstrous Intel Core i9-12900KS produces 150 watts (but in Turbo mode – up to 241 watts). The World’s Most Precious Stones

Deepcool AK500 is compatible with Intel LGA1700, 1200, 1151, 1150, 1155 and AMD AM4 and AM5 processors.
