Valkyrie brought an exhaustive lineup of CPU coolers to the 2024 Computex. This is also the only manufacturer we've come across that put a color display on top of a tower-type CPU cooler, a feature that've we've seen catch on with nearly every AIO liquid CPU cooler manufacturer. There are air coolers with displays on top, but those are LED segment displays putting out basic information such as temperature readings from ACPI. The company displayed an aluminium fin-stack cooler with a large top-plate that has a color display embedded in it, under its Loki brand. The top-plate is wider than the heatsink, but matches the width of the cooler when you install a 120 mm fan. So for those squeamish about liquid cooling, here's a neat alternative.

The Valkyrie Loki series also includes air coolers without this display, replaced by anime art and ARGB LED diffusers. We've seen single fin-stack coolers with dual-fan ventilation (push-pull), and dual fin-stack coolers under the Loki, Merlin, and Mist brands. Switching gears to the liquid cooling lineup, and we see the all-black Valkyrie Dracula, characterized by high static-pressure fluid dynamic bearing fans, and a concealing side mounts for the fans that give the three individual fans the appearance of a compound fan. The model shown at Computex featured a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator.



The Valkyrie Merlin V360 features a similar essential design to the Dracula for the radiator, fans, and side-plates that conceal the cables; but gets a pump-block with a color display. The model on display has a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator. The GL240W is an entry-level AIO CLC lineup from Valkyrie. The high static-pressure fans make way for a more cost-effective set of fans, there are no side-plates for the fans co conceal the cables; and the pump-block lacks any elaborate lighting setup. We also spotted the company's Loki line of mid-range coolers in black and white, sporting 240 mm x 120 mm radiators, and a pump-block with ARGB LED diffusers.
