Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 w/ NZXT Kraken G12 GPU Cooler Review

CLCs are overwhelming used for CPUs, but what if they are better suited for GPUs? The Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 proves it has excellent ability to keep temperatures low during intensive gaming sessions, at minimal noise as well. What it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for by far in price.



NZXT Kraken G12 Graphics Card Cooling Bracket Review

Bringing easy liquid cooling a graphics card is a great idea. The NZXT G12 bracket isn't quite as easy as installing a CLC to a CPU, but it's certainly easier than building a custom cooling loop. The long flat design of air coolers hinders their performance, which is why the NZXT Kraken G12 can perform exponentially.



NZXT Aer RGB LED Fans Review

NZXT blew the doors open with an excellently designed RGB fan. The Aer has intricate control through CAM software and the air flow is adequate for case or radiator use. It would be easy to say NZXT has a perfect product on their hands, but all that bling will cost you some bling.



NZXT Kraken X62 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

As of the time of release, NZXT has the best RGB lighting a CPU cooler can offer on the market. The Kraken X62 also offers excellent cooling performance without sacrificing noise levels. It does have a high price tag though and relies heavily on software control for cooling and lighting.

The only problem is that sales didn’t reflect the hype that went into how great everything was supposed to be. Many factors may have attributed and while most are speculation, high prices for VR headsets seems to be the biggest obstacle to major adoption for the fledgling technology. There’s also the fact that people like me will never buy into VR because the motion sickness was real when I got to try my hand at it. That being said, it’s still pretty likely that VR will be a big deal soon enough. What Oculus and HTC managed to pull off is a great step towards an eventual widespread adoption. Even if it’s a bit slower to take off than expected, hardware manufacturers will probably put themselves in a good position if they have VR components ready for when consumers start really jumping on the bandwagon. In that light, NZXT has released a new VR ready case. The S340 Elite is more of an update from the notable S340 than a new release, but that didn’t stop them from making a great case for those who don’t have VR as well. In fact, adapting a previous design is a very smart way to prepare for changes at a minimal risk. We’ll...
