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'.
It seems like only yesterday when Fractal Design burst onto the DIY scene with their original Define series of cases. Fast forward to today and they continue to offer compelling case design while having expanded into offering high quality fans, all-in-one liquid coolers, and even power supplies. As such, it's no surprise they continue to be quite popular.
Fractal Design has already stepped into the all-in-one liquid arena once before with the Kelvin series, but is looking to bring a better expandable liquid cooler to even more markets. Aggressive pricing and a boatload of features, it would certainly appear that they want to claim a bigger piece of the pie for themselves with the Celsius line of liquid CPU coolers.
In today's review, I cover the Fractal Design Celsius S24. As you may have guessed, it makes use of a 240 mm radiator. However, it does feature a unique twist in that it has an integrated fan hub that uses concealed wiring to connect to the pump. It also offers two modes for speed control; auto and PWM. Generally speaking, the Celsius S24 certainly has a few tricks up its sleeve. So without delaying things any further, let's take a closer look.
