Fractal Design Celsius+ S28 Prisma Review

Closer Look
In a matte-plastic housing with a soft rubber coating, the pump enclosure is particularly small for a device of this type. RGB lighting is emitted from the outer edge of the face, which well demonstrate later.
The outside can be clicked between PWM or AUTO which adjusts the fan and pump speeds.

The underside of the pump, as is the case with all ASETEK-design AIOs, features a smooth copper coldplate with pre-applied thermal paste.

At 30mm thick, the radiator is a little thicker than your typical 25mm rads, with the increase in thickness theoretically providing additional cooling capacity.

Something that weve not seen before is the radiator-mounted fan/RGB controller. This runs the cabling through the sleeved pump tubes to the pump enclosure to help tidy up the system.

Providing the airflow is a pair of Fractal Design Prisma AL-14 ARGB fans, boasting a maximum static pressure of 2.38mm H2O with an operating range of between 500 and 1700 RPM. Weve reviewed the 120mm versions here.

Bolting the fans onto the radiator is super easy, with pre-tapped holes that accommodate the screws very well. Fractal have fitted each side of their AL-14 fans with rubber sections to provide vibration damping.
