When it comes to graphic card cooling, aftermarket air coolers were the best option in the past. Also, unless you were going full water cooling, your options were pretty limited. Recently we have started to see a mass of AIO (all in one) water cooling products come to market giving users many more options for CPU cooling; however, up until now there have not been too many similar options for graphics card cooling. We have seen a few PC enthusiasts creating custom brackets to attach these all in one CPU coolers onto graphics cards, and we have even seen some users even using zip ties, but very few manufactured solutions exist. Sadly, in the long run, we find that many of those custom "homebrew" options were not too pretty and/or had diminished longevity. Today things might be shifting. There is a leading manufacturer that has been listening to its customers and actually produced a bracket using this exact idea. It's also designed to offer up greater reliability and aesthetic appeal for the PC enthusiasts. We would like to introduce you to the NZXT Kraken G10 AIO Cooling Bracket which we will review today. NZXT was also kind nice enough to provide us with an NZXT X40 aAIO cooler for testing as well. Read on to find out how this new product stands in the spotlight.
NZXT is moving the H series to the next level with the H630, using high quality materials and a spacious interior. Will its radical new looks, compared to NZXT’s previous silent cases, be able to convince users to jump on the silent bandwagon? Full Review: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NZXT/H630/
Over the last few years NZXT has introduced a number of modern cases to the world and today we see NZXT continue that trend with the introduction of its new NZXT H630 "Shhh..." Chassis. The H630 Shhh... adds to NZXT's already large line of full tower cases, and today we get to take a close look at it. At a glance, the NZXT H630 has a simplistic design; however, it's been packed with a variety of options and features for today's PC Builders. Aestheically speaking, we prefer the simple, elegant designs over the crazy or dramatic cases, and the NZXT H630 fits that previous description. However, the H630 is more than just an example of simplicity. NZXT introduced this product to be a silent chassis as well. That is why they included the "Shhh..." advertising Moto. We are going to put that and everything else to the test to see what this case brings to the table.
When it comes to computers, cooling is one of the first and foremost issues that must be confronted whether we are running our computers at stock settings or overclocked. It really makes no difference because there is always going to be heat generated from every electrical component in our system. My question to you is, how do you keep it under control? We all are aware of the vast amount of ways to accomplish this, whether it’s faster or bigger fans, or water cooling for example. Fans usually are the cheapest, easiest and most cost effective resolution to improve or adjust cooling throughout your system. Today on the test bench we have four NZXT FZ-200mm fans, including the non-LED and colored LED FZ-200 additions to the NZXT family of fans. The NZXT FZ 200mm fans are engineered to provide high performance cooling with an airflow rating of 103 CFM while maintaining a silent operating profile of only 20 dBA at the highest settings. This provides a 15% increase in cooling performance over their previous FS models. The FZ 200 sets a new standard with a true 200mm wide diameter fan blade and is NZXT’s most ambitious 200mm fan yet. If you’re anything like me and feel that looks are equally as important as performance, you are in luck. The FZ-200 comes in five different LED colors: Blue, Red, Green, White and Orange to match almost any build. Moreover each fan comes with long sleeved cables that will help you keep unattractive fan wires hidden from view. The NZ...
Today we are looking at a new arrival from NZXT. It is a successor to the Sentry Mix, and appropriately labeled the Sentry Mix 2. For those of you who are not familiar with its predecessor, the general design was a little gaudy with those big plastic silver sliders. It is reminiscent of some of the older styled audio mixing equipment. But boy did it perform, boosting 6 channels at 50 watts per channel. The new Sentry Mix 2 from NZXT along with its continuation of customizable lighting features, also brings with it a new look. The Sentry Mix 2 now sports a matte black finish with slim-recessed, long, glossy black sliders. Aesthetically, it is a very welcome change. But that is not all it brings; the Sentry Mix 2 also comes with a completely revamped circuitry and a PCB boosting 6 channels with a pure 30 watts per channel output, for a grand total of 180 watts! The sliders are not just there to supply power to the six fans. They also offer up a larger connector at each end for PWM fans' connectivity as well. Also on my test bench today is another new arrival from NZXT, it’s called the NZXT Grid. This is a fan hub that sports LED lighting, and is designed not only for the NZXT family of controllers, but can also be powered by your power supply’s 4-pin Molex connection. The NZXT Grid can be attached to the back side of your MB tray, and gives you the options of installing up to ten fans in any location, thus keeping your motherboard and your build free from any...

NZXT rolled out Sentry Mix 2, the second generation of its audio mixing equipment-inspired fan controller. The Sentry Mix 2 features six fan channels, controlled by six independent analog sliders. NZXT made the sliders broader, and gave each an LED-backlit label. There are five color options for these LEDs that can be chosen from. The sliders aren’t just rheostats, they also support PWM. The controller features six 4-pin outputs, for fans that support PWM control methods. The controller can supply each fan with up to 30W of power, drawing a maximum of 180W. The Sentry Mix 2 fits into a standard 5.25-inch drive bay, drawing power from up to two 4-pin Molex connectors. Available in just the black color option for now, the Sentry Mix 2 features a matte-black bezel with glossy-black sliders. NZXT didn’t reveal pricing or availability.

This optimization along with the overall, understated design result in the professional look of the H630. The NZXT H630 is available in two color choices – black or white. The clean straight lines with soft corners along with its excellent construction quality, gives the chassis its modern look & feel. This does not only hold true for the exterior but continues within the enclosure as well. Equipped with three separate hard drive bays, the H630 is incredibly flexible how many drives one may install, while offering the most space possible. The advantage of such a flexibility lies in the ability to offer the best possible air flow and plenty of space for radiators.

However, NZXT has made a rather bold decision to bring to us their new HALE90 V2 series which showcase an all-white exterior.

City of Industry, CA – There’s nothing more disappointing than building the ultimate gaming PC, and then finding out that peak performance is not being attained or maximum potential is being capped because of poor cooling. NZXT is proud to bring you the new FZ-200 – a monster of a fan so powerful, you could replace multiple fans with just one of it. Our engineers started off big. The new FZ-200 is 200mm large and boasts a 103CFM rating. This means you’re doing more with less. A single FZ-200 can provide double or triple the air-flow of smaller 120mm case fans. And because you’re using less fans you’re also reducing power usage and noise. The new FZ-200 will operate at between 500RPM and 900 RPM, all while producing a whisper quiet 20 dBA. High-performance air-flow doesn’t need to be noisy. The new FZ-200 will be available in LED versions of all your favorite colors: Red, Green, Blue, White, and Orange, as well as a non-LED version. All cables are sleeved to give your PC that premium look.
