NZXT introduces the new Kraken M Series

Los Angeles, CA – March 6, 2018 – NZXT today announces the expansion of its award-winning Kraken all-in-one liquid CPU cooler family with the new Kraken M Series. The new Kraken M22 delivers NZXT’s signature RGB and infinite-mirror effects in a more affordable AIO CPU cooler.

The reception for the Kraken X Series has been amazing. Our infinite-mirror and RGB lighting effects are a favorite among PC gamers looking to customize their rig,” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder, and CEO. “One of the biggest requests from our community has been to deliver that same signature look at a lower price point. The new Kraken M22 does exactly that.”


Kraken M22 features:

     Advanced RGB lighting modes for a fully customizable and dynamic lighting experience that syncs with other NZXT HUE accessories.

     Complete lighting control through the powerful and versatile CAM* software

     Reinforced, extended tubing for added strength and protection

     Includes a radiator-optimized Aer P 120mm high-static pressure fan designed specifically to deliver excellent performance in a liquid cooling setup

     3-year warranty


Master your Control

Full integration with NZXT’s CAM software makes it easy to choose from a variety of lighting effects, including syncing with other HUE accessories by using the desktop or mobile app.


Light Your Way with CAM

Customize the look of the pump, featuring a dazzling infinite-mirror effect, with the most advanced lighting effects found in an AIO liquid cooler. The Kraken series includes numerously customizable presets and reactive modes to respond to changes in system conditions, such as temperatures and audio output.

Liquid-Cooled Perfection with Radiator Optimized Aer P Fans

The Aer P 120 radiator fans are designed for liquid-cooling perfection. Featuring a chamfered intake and fluid dynamic bearings, they deliver silent operation, durability, and powerful cooling performance. They can also be customized using removable color trims (sold separately).


Reinforced Extended Tubing

Fine nylon sleeves are added to strengthen the rubber tubing. As an added protective layer, it shields your Kraken cooler tubes from potential damage during handling.


No Compromise Quality

The Kraken M Series is built to the exacting standards of the X Series, with the same quality of materials and attention to detail. It achieves a more aggressive price point by including just the essential features. Unlike the current Kraken X Series coolers, the new M22 does not include built-in fan control or liquid temperature monitoring. Instead, users can use the PWM fan headers on their motherboard, or from fan controllers like the NZXT GRID+ V3 or the Smart Device included in NZXT’s H700i, H400i or H200i cases. CAM can still provide CPU temperature and pump speed information, along with other system-level parametric data.


*CAM software requires Microsoft Windows® 10 operating system.

An internet connection is needed to download CAM, and some CAM-powered features require internet access, a valid email address, and acceptance of our current Terms of Service.
