It comes with the same improvements as the big brother X62 V2 and the small brother X42 V2. In addition to a new design for the fan, pump and radiator, the X52 V2 offers high static pressure, lower volume and reinforced hoses for increased durability. The pump itself is equipped with a small infinity mirror and allows a wide range of lighting options, which can be adjusted next to the settings for the pump via the advanced CAM software directly on the desktop. The NZXT relies on the extremely high quality of its products, which shows a very long manufacturing guarantee of six years for an all-in-one water cooling.
The NZXT Kraken X52 V2 Complete Water Cooling Overview:
Complete Wakü system with easy installation
240 mm radiator made of aluminum
Two 120 mm fans (Aer P120) included
Stylish LED lighting effect on the pump
With control and control option via CAM software
High compatibility with AMD and Intel
6 years manufacturing guarantee
Pump, fan & cooling performance
The NZXT Kraken X52 V2 is based on a dual radiator made of aluminum in 240 mm format. The cooling capacity and the resulting volume are controlled not only by the fan speed of the supplied 120-millimeter fan, but also by the motor speed of the pump, which can be between 1,000 and 2,800 rpm. As usual, the pump is integrated into the CPU cooling block, which rests with its copper surface on the AMD or Intel processor.
NZXT uses two of its modern Aer-P fans in 120 millimeters format to cool the radiator. Thanks to the angled air inlet and outlet openings as well as the so-called "winglet" fan blades, the air resistance is minimized and the fan output and the static pressure are amplified. This results in the PWM fans delivering an excellent cooling performance of up to 124.21 m³ / h. Due to the fluid dynamics bearings made of copper, Aer-P fans have an extended service life of more than six years. They also ensure uniform lubrication, which significantly reduces the noise level during operation.
The pump is connected to the mainboard via USB, as usual, and the fans are connected directly to the pump as usual.
Infinity mirrors, LED lighting & CAM software
Regarding design, NZXT has come up with something very special. On the back of the cooling block is a stylish LED lighting with infinity mirror, which creates a fantastic effect. With this lighting, it is possible to illuminate the NZXT lettering as well as the circular LED strip in various colors and effects, depending on the user's preferences and preferences, which leaves a lot to be desired on the mainboard.
With the CAM software, NZXT even gives the user the ability to customize the pump and fan performance. So if you want to balance the balance between cooling and loudness, or between pump and fan speeds, instead of trusting in the out-of-the-box settings, KRAKEN X52 V2 offers the possibility to do so. In addition, current water and core temperature are also given here, and it is even possible to switch between different profiles.
Compatibility & manufacturing guarantee
If the points already mentioned are not yet convinced by the NZXT Kraken X52 V2, the X52 V2 should be a little further, because the X52 V2 is not only extremely cool and operates relatively quiet, it is also highly compatible with all modern sockets of AMD and Intel and is very easy to mount. Especially from the V2 model series AM4 compatibility is given. Furthermore, it is noticeable that the closed water circuit does not have to be serviced, of course, and the complete water cooling is also fitted into some smaller housings, which do not have space for towering cooling fans.
The Kraken X52 V2 is prefilled and delivered with already applied thermal grease on the CPU contact surface. Thanks to 40 cm long hoses, the radiator can be flexibly positioned in two adjacent 120 millimeter fan slots in the housing. In addition, this high-quality compact water cooling system is provided with a manufacturing guarantee of a whole six years, which shows how the principle of all-in-one water cooling works.
