Kraken X-3 RGB
The NZXT Kraken X-3 family is being expanded to include a variant with NZXT AER RGB 2 fans in order to provide builders with optimal RGB lighting in their gaming system. The Kraken X-3 series has a large RGB infinity mirror, with a rotatable pump cover, which ensures that the NZXT logo is correctly aligned. With the latest 7th generation Asetek pump, the Kraken X-3 RGB series has industry-leading cooling performance for all common processors.
With the Kraken Z53, the NZXT Kraken Z-3 series is supplemented by a model with a 240 mm radiator and rounds off the portfolio of the Z series in addition to the models already presented with 280 and 360 mm radiators. The NZXT Kraken Z-3 series is the perfect cooling for any gaming system and the 2.36-inch (60 mm) LCD display integrated in the pump cover offers unlimited visual customization options. Either system data or user-defined images and animated GIFs can be displayed using the NZXT CAM software. With unparalleled aesthetics and performance, the Kraken Z-3 series is also equipped with a 7th generation Asetek pump, giving builders the opportunity to express themselves in a whole new way while keeping the CPU temperature cool at all times.
All Kraken X-3 and Z-3 models are compatible with common CPU sockets such as Intel's LGA 1200 and AMD's AM4, which means that users can access NZXT's high-performance coolers regardless of the platform they choose.
"Our goal has always been to make building easier," says Johnny Hou, founder and CEO of NZXT. "We give people a variety of options to build a computer. Whether you want the system to shine in new RGB splendor or you want to display custom images or NZXT-CAM system data on your Kraken, we have for everything taken care of ".
