NZXT Announces Their Newest Line of Krakens AIO Liquid Coolers: Kraken Elite and Kraken and New RGB H Series Cases

NZXT Announces Their Newest Line of Krakens AIO Liquid Coolers:   Kraken Elite and Kraken and New RGB H Series Cases

As a prominent figure in the PC gaming hardware and services industry, NZXT is excited to unveil the latest iterations of its popular all-in-one liquid CPU coolers: the Kraken and Kraken Elite. These innovative coolers maintain NZXT's signature aesthetic and deliver superior cooling performance, all while integrating essential data visualization through NZXT CAM—a complimentary software suite designed to help users monitor, control, and personalize their NZXT devices.



The Kraken series, now available in 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm sizes, boasts an array of improvements over its predecessors, the Kraken X-3 and Kraken Z-3. Among these upgrades, the Kraken Elite features a 2.36" LCD screen with an enhanced resolution, frame rate, viewing angle, and color accuracy. This vivid display allows for the presentation of data sourced from NZXT CAM, as well as static or animated imagery, with remarkable clarity. Meanwhile, the standard Kraken model is equipped with a 1.54" LCD screen that can showcase system temperatures and static images from NZXT CAM.



In terms of performance, both the Kraken and Kraken Elite are engineered with a silent yet powerful 7th-generation Asetek pump. Users can select from either the High Static Pressure F Series fans or the newly launched F Series Core RGB fans to effectively cool the latest Intel and AMD CPUs. To further streamline the user experience, NZXT has simplified the installation process with a single breakout cable and reinforced tubing for increased durability.

NZXT is also broadening its product offerings with the introduction of RGB versions for the H5 Flow and H7 Flow, as well as an updated model of the H7 Elite. This revamped H7 Elite comes pre-installed with the new F Series Core RGB fans and includes an RGB controller for a seamless out-of-box RGB experience, all managed through NZXT CAM.

In conjunction with these product releases, NZXT has updated the CAM software with new features tailored specifically for the Kraken Elite and Kraken Z-3 series. These enhancements include a dual infographic and carousel mode for displaying system data, and GIPHY integration, which allows users to browse and apply a vast collection of GIFs to their Kraken's screen. Furthermore, the browser stream mode enables users to showcase data from websites like Google Photos, Spotify, or any site of their choice, adding even greater customization and functionality to their builds.


Key Facts about the Kraken Series 


Stay Cool

  • The 7th gen Asetek pump ensures your Kraken cools and stays quiet 
  • F Series Fans provide High Static Pressure to optimize air push through your radiator. This allows for superior heat dissipation. 
    • Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) ensures smooth, quiet operation with a long lifespan.
    • Enjoy precision PWM control, which means fans cool quickly when needed, but stay quiet at lower loads for maximum efficiency
  • RGB Varitents include the F Series RGB Core fans that give a vibrant feel to your gaming setup with the 8 individually addressable RGB LEDs on each fan.

Simple Installation

  • Setup is made simple with a single breakout cable that removes the guesswork from the installation process.

  • Includes mounting accessories for the latest Intel and AMD motherboards

NZXT CAM Ready 

  • Personalize screen content with user-friendly NZXT CAM software. 
  • Control fan and pump speed by running your fans at 0 RPM mode at low temperatures for a quiet operation.
  • Set your Kraken’s RGB and other NZXT lighting effects to cater to your setup’s style.

Performance in Real Time

  • Display custom images and system specs in real-time on the 1.54" diameter LCD screen.
  • Transmissive TFT, 262K color display with 240p x 240p resolution, brightness of 300 cd/m², and a viewing angle of 80°. 

Kraken Elite Exclusive Features


Eye-Catching Quality
