Fractal Design Celsius S36 AIO Cooler Review Comment Thread
All in one water CPU coolers are everywhere these days but Fractal Design's new Celsius S36 dares to do things differently. At 360mm, it may be long but its price to performance is incredible.

Wow. At that pricing and performance this will be the AIO to get in its price bracket. I would love to see them continue the bang for buck down through lower priced components as well.

If the pump is strong enough to handle a GPU water block, a 360mm radiator like this could easily cool both a GTX 1080 and a Ryzen 1700 or 6700k/7700k at stock clocks, and possibly overclocked. It's not uncommon to see slim radiators cooling up to 300 watts of power these days in push-pull.

In addition those Fractal HP fans are very good for radiators (I have tried the 140mm fans for 280mm rads), and because they are off-the-shelf fans, getting more for push-pull to enhance performance by another 15-20% is easy and they are very reasonably priced.

Considering the performance versus price, and the fact that a number of cases in the past three years in ATX and Micro-ATX can handle 360mm radiators, this should be the go-to setup for most people. Hell, even the S24 would be great too.

Great review!

Impressive little package for dirt cheap!

Quite impressive.

I'd love to see follow ups with the either AIO model + extra rad + GPU.

Could be a very nice performance alternative from going all out.

> because I was incredibly happy thermals wise with my H220x + 360mm rad setup from last year.

I imagine re-filling this setup is equally as annoying as the Swiftech setup though UGH!
