NZXT Kraken Z-3 Series AIO Liquid CPU Cooler

NZXT recently announced and released their latest iteration of their RGB all-in-one liquid cooler – the Kraken Z-3 series; including the Kraken X-3 series. The X-3 is a bit similar to the Z-3 but it doesn’t feature the LCD display. Instead, the X-3 series only has the infinity mirror ring LED. That’s why the Z-3 is the more exciting product in this release.

The NZXT Kraken Z73 and Z63 features a 360mm and 280mm radiator respectively and Asetek’s 7th gen pump. The pump has a motor that can do 800 to 2,800 RPM. Both variant features NZXT’s Aer P120 fans that are rated to have a noise level of around 21 – 36 dBA and a fan speed of 500 to 2,000 RPM.

NZXT Kraken Z-3 CPU Water Block

The 2.63” or 60mm LCD display is the main attraction of the Kraken Z-3 series. It’s capable of display 24-bit color and with-it users can do “unlimited visual customizations” and display vital system health data as well as an animated GIF via NZXT CAM.

Both the Kraken X-3 and Z-3 series are compatible with mainstream CPU sockets such as Intel’s LGA 1151 and AMD’s AM4. The Z-3 can also be used on socket TR4 but the bracket is not included. You can check out the rest of the specifications below.
