NZXT is perhaps best known for its computer cases, but the company has a variety of products besides those. Recently, NZXT has unveiled a new line of products and released the Kraken, its first all-in-one premium water coolers. These self-contained systems are the first ones available in 140 and 280mm sizes, which should be plenty big enough for even the fastest processors. NZXT has made the Kraken coolers with 36% more surface area than 120/240mm radiators and fully interactive fan control, so any user should have no problem keeping things cool. Its HUE lighting system is also included on the coolers to give off a unique look, while the black sleeved cables and 16" tubing ensures a nice, clean look in even the largest cases.
Each Kraken cooler is fully compatible with all current sockets from AMD and Intel. The 140mm Kraken X40 cooler comes with NZXT's FX-140 PWM fan and the ability to install a second for a push-pull setup, while the 280mm Kraken X60 features two of the FX-140 PWM fans and the ability to install two more for a massive push-pull configuration. The X60 also has a SATA power connector for easy installation and cable management.
The NZXT X40 is priced at $99.99 and the X60 at $139.99, so neither one will require breaking the bank to keep your system cool. Both models include a two year warranty and should be available soon.
