The Path to Reaching Our Goals:
To attain our goal of providing functional, efficient and sleek Scandinavian designed products for our customers, we apply extreme focus, research and passion each step of the way. Taking pride and extra care from the brainstorming phase through to the planning, design and production phase, we are dedicated to bringing you reliable and quality designs.
The Concept - Design:
The concept of Fractal Design is to provide products with an extraordinary level of design, without compromising the important factors of quality, functionality and pricing. Today's computer has evolved into playing a central role in most homes, creating a demand for appealing design of the computer itself and its accessories. Our main product areas are computer enclosures, power supplies and related accessories.
Designed and Engineered in Sweden:
All Fractal Design products have been carefully designed and tested in our Swedish headquarters. The well-known elements of Scandinavian design can be found throughout all of our product lines; a minimalistic, elegant and simple design, embracing the motto of 'less is more'.
Fractal Design has been around for quite some time now, with their claim to fame being their long-lived Define cases. Given their constant strive to innovate and improve on existing products, it's easy to see why they have become so popular. Not content with just cases, they expanded into power supplies and liquid coolers with the Kelvin series of expandable all-in-one liquid coolers a few years ago.
Time flies, however, and now, Fractal Design is looking to bring a better expandable liquid cooler to market. Loaded with features and aggressively priced, it would certainly appear that they want to claim a bigger piece of the pie for themselves. Enter the Celsius series which is poised to be a contender in the increasingly crowded liquid-cooling market.
In today's review, I cover the Celsius S36. Offering a massive 360 mm radiator with an integrated fan hub and concealed wiring, and a pump that offers Auto and PWM modes for speed control, the Celsius has a few tricks up its sleeve no one else has thought of. Let's take a closer look at it without delaying any further.
