NZXT Kraken X53 RGB 240mm - RL-KRX53-R1 - AIO RGB CPU Liquid Cooler - Rotating Infinity Mirror Design - Improved Pump - Powered By CAM V4 - RGB Connector - Aer RGB V2 120mm Radiator Fans (2 Included)
About this deal
Next come the fans, which in this instance is a pair of Aer P120 fans. These are 120mm by 26mm solutions, which range in speed from 500 to 2000 RPM, driving up to 73.11 CFM per fan! Static pressure is also relatively high at 2.93 mmH2O, and the noise levels are shown not to exceed 36 dBA. These fans spin on a fluid dynamic bearing, sipping power through the 4-pin PWM connections. The fans are said to last for 60,000 hours, which is nearly seven years of life, overextending the six-year warranty!
Built with an aluminum radiator, the Kraken X53 RGB effectively transfers heat away from the CPU for optimal cooling. The radiator has dimensions of 123 millimeters in width and 275 millimeters in depth, providing a compact and efficient cooling solution.NZXT‘s Kraken line of all-in-one coolers has been a staple of PC builders for years now, and the company recently refreshed the Kraken X line. The Kraken X-3 series brings a few new bells and whistles to be excited about, and I’ve been putting the Kraken X53 through the paces over the last month. Fine nylon mesh sleeves strengthen the rubber tubing, providing durability and protection against mishandling. Adjust the orientation of the pump head to fit the needs of your motherboard without affecting the direction of the logo. The pump orientation can be changed in 30° increments to reduce interference with other components. Specification:
Call of Duty's new stupid launcher is a data management nightmare, and it may get worse with Modern Warfare 3 The most significant improvement the Kraken X53 features is the move to Asetek 7th generation pumps, which operate at 800-2,800 RPM. These new pumps allow for quieter operation over a broader range of speeds, giving Kraken owners the best of both worlds when it comes to noise reduction and performance.I've previously tested the Kraken Z63 and Z73, finding both to be simply brilliant at not only keeping your CPU cool, but also acting as a gateway to colorful lighting and other cool effects. NZXT has refreshed the entire Z series, but today we'll be looking at the new Z53, which is the smaller sibling to the two AIOs, coming in with a 240mm radiator, making this perfectly suited to compact PC builds. We applaud NZXT for their drive to get better and for their outlook into ways to distinguish their Kraken series from all of the various competitors! We can see where there are times the RGB environments do not play well with each other, and companies certainly benefit from creating an exclusive environment to control it. It makes sense. We have no issues with any of this, and it is the way it works in the real-world. The addition of the HUE 2 outgoing lead is the next evolution. We loved the rotatable top, as there have been instances where we have dealt with inverted logos and the like. Installation is simple, and once you have all the connections made, CAM does offer quite a bit to play with, in the RGB lighting department, and you will need it to control the speed of the pump.
Our Kraken X3 (X53, X63, and X73) Series of coolers are easy to install! Please refer to the embedded video below for how to install your cooler. We also have a handy manual you can review here. Mine came damaged but this was just the fans, the AIO itself was fine. Had it over a year in 2 different PCs and it has served me well.
