Command Your Cool with the All-New NZXT Kraken

Los Angeles, CA – October 18, 2016 – NZXT today announces the latest evolution in its renowned Kraken series, featuring the most advanced controls included in an all-in-one liquid cooler. With the debut of the Kraken X52, and the upgraded Kraken X42 and X62, everything, including the pump, radiator and fans have been designed and engineered to deliver cooling performance that is second to none. 

 

The launch of the Kraken X52 allows us to provide optimal cooling performance to builders in a 240mm form factor,” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO. “With the all-new Kraken series, we’ve improved upon the previous generation in many ways. Incorporating HUE+ lighting and NZXT’s new digital control interface allows unprecedented customization to be delivered. The pump has been redesigned to bring quieter operations with improved performance.

 

All-new Kraken Series features:

● Redesigned quieter pump: Embrace the silence 

● CAM Powered Pump and Fan Speed Controls: Full control to cool your way

● All-new Aer P Fans: Built for cooling perfection

● Reinforced Tubing: Nylon enhanced for added protection

● Advanced RGB Lighting Effects: Informative and fun

● Industry Leading 6-year Warranty

 

 

Master Your Control and Light Your Way with CAM 3.2

Through CAM’s intuitive design and full software integration, the new Kraken features the most refined and sophisticated controls ever for an all-in-one liquid cooler. Thanks to tailor-made firmware control, independent regulation of pump performance and tuning for the fans allows for exceptional cooling and unmatched customization when aiming for the ultimate system performance. All firmware upgrades are handled through CAM allowing users to benefit from additional options (settings, lighting modes, etc.) in the future.

 

In addition to improved cooling performance, the Kraken’s pump heightens its presence with beautiful lighting effects that utilize the full RGB spectrum. Numerous customizable presets and reactive modes, including Spectrum Wave, Loading, and Exchange can respond to temperature and audio output conditions to inform users of system changes. Separate channels allow detailed lighting control of both the pump’s ring and NZXT logo for countless combinations. 

 

CAM 3.2 will be available for download soon and feature numerous updates including HUE+ lighting sync, support for Aer RGB, and Game mode for CS:GO lighting integration.

Liquid-Cooled Perfection with New Aer P Fans

Alongside the new Kraken series, NZXT is debuting the Aer P series of high static pressure fans. Chamfered intake and exhaust, winglet designed fan blades and fluid dynamic bearings provide the silence, durability and cooling performance that leverages the Kraken's superior pump, water block and tubing performance to deliver a truly premium cooling experience. Available in 120mm, (included with the Kraken X52) and 140mm (included with Kraken X42 and X62) the Aer P fans feature sleeved cables to keep PC builds clean and vibration dampeners on each mounting point to minimize case noise. Three colored trim choices are available and sold separately to color coordinate your build. Choose from blue, red or white.

 

Reinforced Extended Tubing

Improving upon the already durable design of the Kraken series, the all-new Kraken comes pumped up with reinforced nylon sleeves for added strength that does not compromise flexibility. The enhanced durability of the nylon sleeving further protects the Kraken cooler tubes from potential harm during installation.
