Fractal Design Celsius S24 & S36 AIO Review

Introduction

Fractal aren't one of those companies that swamp the market with design after design.  They tend to do something once, and do it well.  Perhaps better known for their excellent cases, they have though dipped their design toes into AIO coolers and having looked at the Kelvin series a while back, we're keen to see how the new Celsius line of coolers will cope with our arduous torture test.  This review is actually a two for the price of one review, as we'll actually be looking at both of the brand spanking new Celsius S24 and S36 AIOs.  As this is the first time we've really looked closely at a 360mm AIO we're keen to see whether it will dominate the 280mm rads that lead the torture test charts.

Very nice. Love the fact that it uses "real" fittings to add to the aesthetics.

Shame it says warranty void on the fittings though. Fans don't excite me much either. Other than that though yeah man, bang on !

Ta for the review.Quote

It is. Add res and GPU block and you've got a capable yet cheap loop Quote
