Based in Gothenburg, Fractal Design are a leading designer within the PC hardware market, primarily focussing on cases, power supplies and cooling equipment.
The all-in-one watercooling market is swamped with options from many high-end brands, including Fractal, so it can be hard to find the one that suits your needs best. Fractal Design reckon their Celsius+ range of AIOs take watercooling to a new level, so we’ll put our sample under the microscope and see what’s what.
Featuring ARGB on both the pump face and on the Prisma AL-series fans, with RGB lighting orchestrated by an on-radiator controller, lighting is well-catered for. The AL-series fans also piggyback off the on-radiator controller, all of which claims to help provide a clutter-free installation with minimal visible wires. RGB control is supported by Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion, ASUS Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light Sync, ASRock Polychrome Sync and Razer’s Chroma RGB API.
The Celsius+ Prisma range is available with a 240mm, 280mm or a 360mm radiator, all of which are backed by a whopping 5-year warranty. Today we’re examining the 280mm (2x 140mm) version that promises a lot but does it deliver?
Fractal Design on the Celsius+ S28 Prisma:
Celsius+ takes AIO water cooling to a new level with an ARGB-accented pump face, a fully redesigned block and an upgraded on-radiator PWM fan hub with ARGB support.
