With the debut of the Kraken X52, and the now upgraded Kraken X42 and X62, everything, including pump, radiator and fans, has been designed and engineered to deliver cooling performance that is second to none. The new Kraken series also feature reinforced extended tubing across the board, with reinforced nylon sleeves that add strength while showing no compromises in flexibility.

 

"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 include:

 

  • Redesigned quieter pump for silent operation
  • CAM Powered Pump and Fan Speed Controls
  • All-new Aer P Fans built for cooling perfection
  • Advanced RGB Lighting Effects
  • Industry-leading 6-year Warranty

 

Through CAM's intuitive design and full software integration, the new Kraken series by NZXT allows for independent regulation of pump and fan performance, while allowing full control over additional options, like cycling through different lightning presets and operation modes. 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 operation.
