NZXT has just released the newest generation of their popular All-in-One Liquid Coolers - the Kraken and Kraken Elite. The award-winning series is renowned for its coveted design and exceptional cooling; along with free software (NZXT CAM) that shows vital data while allowing users to easily customise and control their product. The new Krakens incorporate Asetek's 7th-Generation of liquid cooling technology which provides targeted cooling of CPUs, outstanding gameplay, greater overclocking potential, and a unique level of personalisation and creativity.

"Innovation combined with quality and reliability are at our core, which is why we continue to partner with Asetek for our portfolio of industry-leading liquid cooling solutions," said Johnny Hou, CEO at NZXT. "We worked hand-in-glove with Asetek to define and develop our new Kraken and Kraken Elite. The result is extreme performance, quieter operation, phenomenal reliability, and some stunning aesthetics for the ultimate in personalisation."
