Test: DeepCool Mystique 360


The Mystique 360 kit

Packaging-wise, there are no major changes, as DeepCool retains its usual packaging. A cardboard box with cyan accents. On the white slide, there’s a reminder of how the anti-leak system works, as well as details of the specifications.

Internally, however, there’s no risk of breakage, as the kit is well protected in white polyurethane foam! Gone are the classic cardboard molds.

The radiator:

On the edge, we can see a tablet featuring the brand’s logo with a cyan background. In itself, it’s the same radiator as the LT720, making a welcome change from the rounded models with visible rivets found on 7th-generation Asetek kits.

As for dimensions, they’re no different, measuring 120 (W) x 420 (L) x 27 (H) mm. Normally, there will be no unpleasant surprises when you install it in your PC case, unlike an Arctic Liquid Freezer II or III, which has a 38 mm thick heatsink.

Finally, to connect the radiator to the pump unit, there are two hoses, each measuring 41 cm in length. Once again, the finish is not to be outdone, with an attractive nylon sheath. And to keep everything in place, we’re treated to two wide Velcro straps. These replace the LT720’s clips.

The pump unit :

As for the pump block, it offers a rather uncluttered look with its gray frame. In the center, we find the screen, while a DeepCool logo appears at the top. Below, we can see an evasure featuring a squared-off texture with a translucent border diffusing aRGB lighting.

The screen in question is rather large, with a diagonal of 2.8″. The same goes for resolution, with 640×480 pixels. Although the brightness and type of screen are not specified, we do know that it can display 16.7 million colors. Likewise, it is equipped with gyroscopic sensors to determine orientation: portrait or landscape, depending on which way you turn the pump.

In terms of dimensions, this pump unit measures 93 (L) x 77 (W) x 66 (H) mm. It’s still quite imposing compared to others, notably the iCUE Link H150i LCD, for example. But its screen is also bigger. As for the base, it still measures 53 mm square and is held in place by ten star-head screws.

By default, thermal paste is pre-applied, which doesn’t reassure us much. Often, when it’s applied, there’s none in the accessory area, so check. Otherwise, the base is particularly smooth and traces of machining will not be felt under the fingers.

Finally, we’d like to mention the 90° tips, which are also beautifully finished with attractive anodized aluminum sleeves. The same type of spigot can be found on radiator outlets.

Compatibility :

In terms of compatible platforms, DeepCool offers support for :

  • Intel: LGA-115x – LGA-1200 – LGA-1700
  • AMD: AM5 – AM4

As you can see, compatibility stops at mainstream Intel and AMD platforms. The LGA-2000 is getting seriously old, while AMD’s HEDT processors require wider bases to cover CPUIHS perfectly.


On the ventilation side, we have a serious change as the company is ditching its FK fans in favor of the FT12 SE. As you can see, they’re totally unobtrusive with their black frame and blades, and there’s no aRGB lighting here.

The shape of the frame, however, remains unchanged. As you can see, it’s square-shaped, as are its rubber silentblocks . The blades, on the other hand, are nine in number and have a normal curvature.

Connection is via a short PWM cable with male and female connectors for series connection. The aim is to reduce the number of cables in your installation. It’s also worth noting that, by default, the fans are connected to each other while already mounted on the radiator.

DeepCool claims maximum speeds of 2,150 rpm. At full speed, maximum airflow will be 72.45 CFM, while static pressure will reach 4.32 mmAq. Compared to the FK120s, airflow is down, while static pressure is up. Now, what about noise? We’ll have to wait and see.

The bundle:

The accessories come in a variety of small plastic bags:

  • Assembly instructions
  • Metal backplate for Intel sockets
  • Mounting arms and hardware for AMD and Intel platforms
  • Warranty guide
  • PWM extension cable
  • Screws and bolts for mounting additional fans and radiator screws

The accessories section remains complete, allowing you to assemble theAIO without any headaches. What’s more, the additional hardware will enable push/pull configuration mounting. Unfortunately, as we suspected, no additional thermal paste is supplied, which is a shame on a cooling system costing over €200.

Roughly speaking:

DeepCool’s Mystique 360 is beautifully finished, with a streamlined look that will look good in any configuration. The screen is imposing and should be clearly visible. However, the accessory section remains fairly classic, and no additional thermal paste is supplied. In the event of cleaning, you’ll need to buy a new syringe.
