Fractal Design Kelvin S36 Review



The long awaited Fractal Design Kelvin S36 AIO is finally here. A 360mm Rad, but will it top the torture test charts?

That actually looks really nice, I wish that I couldn't tell my H105 pump was on, or the H105 before, or the H105 before...

Do they have any plans to sell the pump/block just on it's own? I wouldn't really want the rad, or the fittings, or the tubing, or the fans and I would be tempted to mod the casing but still I just like the pump unit. Does it run off a molex or a 3-pin guv?

Just Wow!

Part of me feels like a Corsair 360 Rad isn't far off though. May be wrong but seems the logical step for them

It didn't perform like i thought it would. I was expecting to pull further ahead in the last 2 graphs considering there's more surface area. I think it's the fans though. If they were less silent but ran at higher rpms they would have really taken the temps down. Though still isn't worth the noise. Just something worth pointing out.

Now i want one... best AIO on the market while being silent? Yes please!

Corsair need to counter this with an AIO that has the lighting options of the H100i with the same looking tubing and block, The thickness of the H105 and in a 360mm length.

You keep saying this but its pretty doubtful it will happen. At that rate you're better off going custom. It'll probably costs the same as an xspc kit.

Really nice AIO, good to see more opions on the market, especially in a 360mm size, considering so many cases have room now days.

also their use of proper fittings is really nice, give the cooler a much better look.

Currently £119.99 on ebuyer (please remove if this breaks any rules!)

This review is perfectly timed for me! Was going to get the H100i but always had my heart set on a 360 instead, similar to my old custom wc setup
