Product information - KRAKEN M22 All-in-One - 120mmThe NZXT Kraken M22 is a modern All-in-One water cooler. In addition to its impressively designed fan, pump and radiator, the M22 also offer high static pressure along with a lower noise output and reinforced tubing for increased durability. The pump itself is equipped with a small infinity mirror and a variety of lighting options, as well as desktop customisable settings for the pump thanks to NZXT's advanced CAM software. NZXT has stayed true to their reputation for producing premium products, backing this up with the addition of a three year manufacturer's guarantee.

Pump, Fan & Cooling PerformanceThe NZXT Kraken M22 utilises a slightly enlarged individual aluminium radiator with a 120 mm format. This helps to moderate the cooling performance as well as the noise output of the bundled 120 mm fan. As usual, the pump is integrated into the rear of the CPU cooling block whose copper surface maintains contact with the AMD or Intel processor. The fan spins at 3000 RPM.
To keep the radiator cool, NZXT uses one of their modern 120 mm Aer-P fans. Thanks to the angled air intakes and outlets as well as the so-called "winglet" fan blades, air resistance is minimised while fan power and static pressure experience a marked improvement. This allows the PWM fan to deliver superb cooling performance of up to 124,2 m³/h. The copper fluid dynamic bearings also result in the Aer-P fan enjoying an extended operating life of over six years. This also helps to ensure even and uniform lubrication, thereby helping to ensure a noticeable reduction in noise during operation.
The pump is connected to the motherboard via USB, while the fan is connected directly to the pump as usual.
Infinity Mirror, LED Lighting & CAM SoftwareIn respect to the cooler's design, NZXT has pulled out all the stops this time: The rear of the cooler comes with stylish LED lighting and an infinity mirror which makes for some fantastic effects. This lighting allows the NZXT logo as well as the circular LED strips to be illuminated according to the preferences of the user in a massive range of colours and effects.
NZXT's CAM software offers users the option of manually customising pump- and fan performance. The KRAKEN M22 offers users keen on finding the perfect balance between cooling and noise or between pump- and fan speeds everything they could need. Constantly updated water- and core temp readings are available and multiple profiles are available to choose from.
Compatibility & Manufacturer's GuaranteeStill unconvinced by the NZXT Kraken M22 and what it can do? Read on, because the M22 is not just an incredibly effective and quiet cooler, it is also compatible with all modern AMD and Intel sockets and allows for incredibly simple mounting. The closed water loop obviously does not require any maintenance and this cooling solution is also capable of fitting into many smaller cases, cases which often struggle to fit standard tower-style air coolers.
The Kraken M22 comes pre-filled and with the thermal paste already applied to the CPU contact area. Thanks to the 40 cm long tubing, the radiator can easily be positioned in a 120 mm fan slot in the case. This premium compact water cooler also comes with a three year manufacturer guarantee, which should give users some idea of just how durable All-in-One water cooling can be.

Summary: This Kraken M22 is a 120mm AIO Watercooling. It is aimed at tight configurations or lack of punch on the ventilation side. Its cooling performance meets conventional needs but does not focus on overclocking. A good PWM management and a processor not exceeding 95 Watts of TDP are recommended for maximum silence. The quality of manufacture, the finish and the RGB with the famous infinite mirror effect are its assets. It offers a unique and instantly recognizable rendering with a windowed case.read more...
