Presentation : DeepCool ST500 ARGB

Presentation : DeepCool ST500 ARGB

If you remember, a few years ago, graphics cards were not nearly as large as they are now. From memory, we had the Asus DirectCU II (HD 6900/GTX 500) that occupied three slots

and a few other refs later on. Nowadays, this has become commonplace, moreover, these models have become so heavy, that it is better to support them to prevent them from tilting. It’s a good thing because DeepCool has just announced its ST500 ARGB, a graphics card support. So, what does it look like? That’s what we’ll see in this presentation. DeepCool ST500 ARGB boîte

When we open the box, we find our graphic card holder and its accessories resting in a cardboard mold. Likewise, each element is protected by plastic bags. Well, we won’t dwell on it, these are the classic protections and it does the job very well.

Concerning the support itself, it comes in the form of a long arm in PCIe format with two slots

thick. Moreover, in detail, we find dimensions of 80 (W) x 318.30 (D) x 33 (H) mm. The weight is rather light with its 269 g on the scale.

In order to properly support our graphics card, we can make some adjustments. Basically, the support has a screw that we can move laterally and in height. So that you can get an idea of what is possible, we have made two gifs, visible on the gallery above.

For the rest, we will find a construction mixing both steel and plastic. Of course, all the support part will be made of steel while the cover is made of plastic. This cover contains all the lighting and connectivity part of the ST500 ARGB. Speaking of connectivity, we have three-pin RGB connectors male and female to connect it to other lighting devices.

Without further ado, let’s see what’s in the accessories section. And in the box we have :

  • An installation manual in the form of a leaflet
  • A double PCIe bracket with two slots
  • Two hand screws to tighten the bracket on the double bracket
  • Three sleeves to be screwed on which the support will be supported

In fact, the accessory part goes to the essentials by containing the necessary to install the ST500 ARGB. And at the same time, what more could you ask for? That is the question.

The assembly

The assembly is very simple to implement since it is to screw the double PCI express bracket to our case. Then, we will plug the bracket in and tighten it with the two hand screws. The slides are present to manage the spacing of the device according to the width of your GPU.

Once correctly arranged, we will screw the screws at the back of the card holder. Depending on the height at which you have installed it, you may have to put in one, two or even all three screws. The goal is for the screws to reach the bottom of your case to properly hold your graphics card. Wouldn’t it be a shame to have a tilted bracket at the same time as the GPU?

Nevertheless, we see a limit to this system. As you can see from the pictures, our Antec P120 Crystal case has fans on the bottom. If this is also your case, you’ll just have to keep your fingers crossed that these famous screws will be placed on the frames and not in the fan blades.

Finally, the last step is to play with the height and depth of the screw that will support the graphics card. But in itself, this is not an accessory that will require much time to deploy.

Conclusion

DeepCool ST500 ARGB conclusion Clearly, if you have a thick modern card, this ST500 ARGB bracket may be a solution for you. Indeed, once properly installed, the support of your GPU

is optimal since it will be supported at the bottom of your case. Nevertheless, be careful with your case. If, like us, you have fans installed there, it can become problematic. All you have to do is cross your fingers that the screws will fit on the frame of the fans.

Now we come to the price. On this subject, the DeepCool accessory is on sale, on the net, at a little over 20 €. The price does not seem exaggerated and the construction seems solid, especially since it is not the longest to set up. It may be an investment to consider, especially if you move around a lot with your machine. When moving, the vibrations and shocks on the road, it has been seen, it can be fatal.
