Fractal Design Showcases Their Celsius S24 and S36 AIO Coolers at Computex 2017

Fractal Design, which recently announced their new Celsius S24 and Celsius S26 lines of AIO liquid cooling solutions, took to Computex 2017 to showcase their latest answer to an enthusiast's needs. The two models differ on radiator size, with the S24 materializing as a 240 mm piece, while the S36 is, expectedly, a 360 mm one. These feature integrated sound dampening, standardized G1/4" fittings, and discrete cabling for the radiator fans, with 2x or 3x 4-pin PWM fan headers on the radiator.
These AIOs include Dynamic X2 fans, which spin between 500 and 2,00 RPM by PWM. They are able os pushing up to 87.6 CFM of air, with a noise output of up to 32.2 dBA. Socket support starts with LGA 2066 and AM4, but go all the way back in history through LGA115x, LGA2011/v3, AM3(+), and FM2(+). This AIO won't be the answer to Intel or AMD's HEDT CPUs, but chances are it will competently cool you other central processing unit of choice. The coolers are backed by 5-year warranties, and are priced at USD $109.99 for the Celsius S24, and $129.99 for the Celsius S39.

I believe you meant 2,000 RPM

Worth noting that the Celsius series uses copper cold plates and aluminum radiators (-> galvanic corrosion) and is produced by Asetek (40 l/h pump, not suited for expansion), unlike the Kelvin series which was all copper and built with Alphacool components (72 l/h, built on DC-LT 2600).

Asetek FTW :rolleyes:

It's closer in actual use. The pump specs are in free flow with no restriction added, so in the AIO itself it will be even lower. So the Asetek one will have an even lower flow rate, but that said the newer pumps output more too supposedly.

Do you honestly really believe not a single person had thought of the idea of galvanic corrosion and how to prevent it? :rolleyes:

Totally agree. This feels like a pure downgrade from Kelvin series. :(

I'm not sure what you mean "it" is closer to and so am responding here :)

I imagine they just use propylene glycol like they usually do but I don't know for sure.

But the issue is that it's expandable, so users will want to flush it out when replacing the radiator and/or use some corrosion inhibitor if expanding with the aluminum radiator, which probably isn't advisable given the pump's power.

Unfortunately :( Probably have options in Finland though :)

Edit: To be fair the fan wiring and standard tubing sizes are welcome innovations. Interested to know more about the "dampened" pump.

Yeah, no problem having options to get something similar, but better! :)

I was referring to the two pump flow rates as in they are closer to each other, but I blame my phone for the misunderstanding :p
