Fractal Design Celsius S24 Review

A Closer Look »


Fractal Design uses a fairly large box for the Celsius S24. It measures in at roughly 40.7 cm long, 17.7 cm wide, and 14.5 cm tall. The front shows off the Celsius S24, along with its support for AMD's socket AM4 Ryzen CPUs and the warranty's length of 5 years. Moving to the left side, we find detailed measurements of the radiator, an image as a reference, as well as a list of supported CPU sockets. Spinning the box around, we are presented with a look at the pump, which uses sleeved tubing to hide the fan controller's cable. The pump also has a sound-dampening layer inside. A more detailed explanation of the automatic and PWM fan-control modes is also here. Auto has the system intelligently optimize the pump and fans for a balance between performance and noise, while PWM allows for precise control over a software of your choice, using the motherboard's PWM signal.

On the right side are just a bunch of bar codes and a serial number. Looking at the top, a quick summary of this AIO's key points in various languages can be found, while the bottom details said points again in English. Those details include the Dynamic X2 GP12 PWM fans that are included, the integrated fan hub, and the fact that this unit is expandable.


As per the usual when opening the box for an AIO, we are greeted by the stereotypical cardboard tray that protects the liquid cooler. However, that foam sheet that is usually included on top is not to be found here. I find it a bit odd and would prefer to see it here as every bit of extra protection is always a good thing.

Everything needed for just about every modern socket is present, including AM4 and TR4 via the bracket included with Threadripper CPUs. Out of box, the Celsius S24 is configured for Intel systems.
