DeepCool GamerStorm Genome ATX PC Chassis
With included 360mm liquid cooling 

We review a product that is a bit different alright, the Genome Chassis from DeepCool, a product series that not only has out of the ordinary aesthetics, it's factory fitted with a 360mm triple fan based liquid cooling solution as well. The chassis oozes ease of use with its scientific looks. Does the chassis life up to the reputation that DeepCool created with the TriStellar series ?  Below first a quick overview of some of the specs and features

  • Extreme liquid cooling solution, including an ATX PC case and integrated liquid cooling system;
  • 360mm radiator, 3 PWM LED fans,  reservoir and helix are pre-installed;
  • Innovative structure with separated functional areas provides extended support;
  • Cable management support for better cooling and tidy arrangement of cables;
  • Controllable breathing lighting around the reservoir;
  • Extra space reserved for water cooling system;
  • unique shape of top panel for better cooling effect;
  • Extra slots for vertical GPU installation(PCI-E extension cable is not included);
  • Bigger cutout for easier CPU cooler installation;
  • USB3.0 x2;
  • With rubber buffer and dust filter for PSU;
  • Side window for better view;

DeepCool has been on a roll lately, their TriStellar series became hugely popular, nearly viral. And that gave them a more secure name / branding in the USA and EU channels. DeepCool typically was mainly know for their cooling solutions, these days they offer proper AIO liquid cooling kit and a number of chassis. Something new was announced at CES 2016, their Genome project. The Genome is a bit of a hybrid of a chassis with included cooling, a new design chassis series combined with an factory fitted and integrated liquid cooler based on their 'Captain' AIO kits. That captain series comes in 120mm, 240mm and 360mm versions and DeepCool decided to do it properly, and fits the genome with the 360mm model. Aesthetics are important as well, at the front-side you'll notice part of the reservoir visible, styled like that shape we recognize as Nucleic acid double helix. The chassis is your modern age design that comes with all the whistles and bells you may expect from it, we'll show it all of course. As a package you open it up, install your components and you are good to go as everything LCS wise is pre-fitted and thus the kit is easy to use and install.

The Genome is aimed in the sub 250 USD segment, and albeit it might sound expensive for a chassis, you simply may not forget that included is a Captain 360 AIO that normally sells for 139.99 USD/EURO alone, so we feel this chassis actually offers pretty good value.

The chassis can hold ATX format motherboards as well as the two smaller Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX. You'll spot grommet holes that are rubberized, a PSU compartment, everything is detailed in black, the radiator fans have nice white LEDs, plenty of storage options and pretty decent cable routing. Next to that the water-block slash pump has a fading LED as well as the front-side Helix, brings a lot of bling towards this chassis. Have a peek at the DeepCool GamerStorm Genome, and then lets head on-wards to the next page please.
