    Default The NZXT Kraken is Getting an Update

    Some products go through numerous revisions in an ever-evolving attempt to gain relevance. Others are so good at the start that revisions are few and far between. The Kraken falls into the latter group, having had a great reputation since the very first releases. In fact, the Kraken lineup has only seen one revision since it’s first release years ago. With that in mind, it’s pretty exciting to see that NZXT is about to release the X42, X52 and X62 coolers with some simple improvements that will keep the Kraken name going strong. The revisions on the series are nothing major, but look like they’ll keep the Kraken performing well in cooling and silence. The pump seems to be a bit stronger with what looks like an improved lighting effect, while the added Aer P fans seem to follow in a similar fashion. There’s some other improvements, but what I like about this is the concept of bringing better cooling performance without sacrificing the noise the unit will have. The reviews will confirm this, but I’m not seeing much to indicate that this won’t be the case here. On top of that, NZXT is including a phenomenal 6-year warranty. That’s pretty ambitious for a CLC. Availability on the units will be about a month out, but I’m already excited to see how the new Kraken units will do. Once again, NZXT’s lineup already has a good reputation that didn’t require a whole lot to be changed, but I doubt anybody will complain about any improvements. Check out below for some more pictures and the full details from the press release.
