DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 Heatsink Review
DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 Heatsink Review
  80%   
Abstract: DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards.

FrostyTech Mk.III Synthetic Thermal Heatsink Test Results
Intel Core i7, Extreme Edition class heatsinks tested at a 200W heat load.
Results based on readings from a 38x38mm copper interface die with 200W heat load on the Intel version of the Mk.III Test Platform. Temperature results listed for each heatsink were calculated by determining the rise over ambient temperatures at time of test. Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.

200W Thermal Test (°C) Noise Level (dBA)
*Heatsinks are ranked according to the 200W Thermal Test results column (rise over ambient temp.). Low temperatures with low noise levels are considered best. For reference heatsinks with variable-speed fans, only the high speed (12V) fan test result is included in the comparison sheet; more detailed results reside in each specific heatsink review.

Frostytech's socket LGA2011 Intel synthetic thermal test platform stresses socket LGA2011/1366 compatible heatsinks with a 200W heat load. Keep in mind that the AMD Integrated Heat Spreader and Intel LGA2011 Integrated Heat Spreader both measure ~38x38mm, so these test results can be extrapolated to higher wattage AMD processors as well.

With a 200W heat load applied by the Intel LGA2011/1366 version of FrostyTech's synthetic thermal test platform, the DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink yielded an average temperature result of 23.2°C over ambient at stock fan speed (1800RPM) with moderate noise output (55.5dBA).

Reducing 120mm fan speed to 600RPM caused test temperatures to rise to an unsatisfactory result of 49.4°C over ambient; clearly, the heatsink is starved for sufficient airflow.

Running the DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink with its slim 120mm fan at the slowest speed (600RPM) is not advisable, the fan just doesn't move enough air to adequately cool the voluminous K2 cooling stack. At stock speed the Lucifer K2 performs at about the same level as the original Lucifer heatsink, which was generally a good heatsink for AMD or Intel LGA115x platforms. The Lucifer K2 still fails to make its presence known in the Intel LGA2011 heatsink reference chart, however.
