Fractal Design Updates Their Blackout Series Of Watercoolers
Dark Days For Watercooling Enthusiasts
Fractal Design announced two new Blackout Celsius watercoolers, the S36 with three 120mm Dynamic X2 PWM Black Edition fans and the S24 which sports a pair of the same. The Blackout series is design to provide effective cooling while remaining barely audible, not to mention the extra special feature of no RGBs. The radiator fittings use standard G ¼” threads so you can easily loop these into an existing setup without needing adapters or a rebuild.
The S36 above is 403x123x30mm and will support any modern processor, up to an including Threadripper thanks to a bracket included in the packaging. The S26 below is 284x122x31 mm and will fit in smaller cases, though you will likely not see as effective cooling with the smaller radiator and two fans.
The two coolers both come with a fan controller, which can intelligently toggle the fans within their 500-2,000 RPM capabilities via Fractal Design’s software, or you can switch to PWM to control them yourself. You can grab them now, the Celsius S24 Blackout is $109.99, while the Celsius S36 Blackout retails for $119.99.
