Fractal Design outs Kelvin Series open loop liquid coolers

Fractal Design announces Kelvin series open-loop DIY liquid coolers for 120mm, 240mm and 360mm radiator size- T12, S24 or S36. Fractal Designed showed-off its Kelvin series earlier with few videos and tears, and in the meanwhile used the time to do tweaks. These are designed provide a powerful solution while giving the flexibility of a liquid cooler. Fractal Design said that these have silent operations, but also provide powerful performance and easy expansion.

It was also added that its high-performance ceramic pumps are strong enough for even full-fledged water cooling setup should one decide to cool their GPU setup.

They’re not yet available, but the pricing are as follows:

Kelvin T12 Kelvin S24 Kelvin S36
USD 99.99 119.99 139.99
GBP 74.99 89.99 104.99
EUR 94.95 114.95 135.95
  • Key features

    • Fantastic cooling performance
      • The strong pump and the full-copper construction places the Kelvin Series water cooling system ahead of the pack in cooling performance.
    • Expandable system. Just open it up to get the full benefits of custom water cooling, with the ability to add any components you want to the loop, such as a graphics card cooler.
      • High-pressure pump allows strong water flow rates even when an additional CPU or GPU water block or an additional radiator has been added to the loop.
      • All parts have fully standard G 1/4″ thread fittings for compatibility with the vast majority of enthusiast water cooling products.
      • The tubes are fastened with two-part brass fittings, providing a secure seal while being easy to open and re-seal with a standard wrench.
      • Easy refilling with dedicated fill port
    • Made with enthusiast-grade components developed in cooperation with Alphacool
      • Highly reliable ceramic bearing pump, with custom tuned maximum RPM for the optimal balance between performance and noise level
      • made with a revolutionary copper/nylon radiators
      • Full copper CPU Water block design featuring strategic jet plate improvements
    • Long lifetime. The performance of most pre-filled water cooling systems degrade quite significantly over time,  because of galvanic corrosion and water loss.
      • Galvanic corrosion occurs over time when two metals with different galvanic potential (such as aluminum and copper) are in contact. It can be slowed with anti-corrosion additives in the water, but the best way to maintain performance over time is to use metals with similar galvanic potential. The Kelvin Series water cooling system is constructed with pure copper in both the radiator and the water block, along with brass fittings.
      • To avoid the common issue of most pre-filled water cooling units (that tend to lose performance over time due to water loss in the tubes), Fractal Design equipped the Kelvin series with a fill dedicated port.
