Fractal Design Celsius S24 & S36 AIO Review 

Packaging and Contents 

Yup, that's right, we're giving you double bubble and looking at both the S24 and the S36 as part of the same review.  Now, obviously, there' going to be a fair bit of cross over between the two, so unless we expressly state otherwise, assume that what is saifor one, also holds true for the other.  So what of the packaging?  Well as you can see, it's simple and elegant, with the 360 rad box being bigger than the 240mm as you would expect

The rear and sides of the box give some basic descriptions of the coolers, but missing is the detailed tech spec we've come to expect. Actually, that said, it's really no big deal that the extensive specs aren't on the box, it's not like we wander round AIO cooler supermarkets and pick them up to compare the specs is it?

Inside, it's business as usual, with egg box card supporting the polythene wrapped contents.  This is the box for the S24, with the S36, you get a total of three 120mm fans

The instructions are quite basic, but easy enough to follow.  What they don't do though is tell you about how the fans and pump hook up to offer PWM control should you so desire.

The fittings bag contains everything you need for a wide range of CPUs, including the new Ryzen.  Fractal actually include a flyer in the instructuions telling you that the contents of the box you have might differ from the instructions, with thee reason being that it supports Ryzen, but doesn't necessarily say so.  well done to Fractal for dipping back into their boxes to get the fittings sorted, and we think we can let them off not re printing thousands of instruction books.

The S24 and S36 come with two or three 120mm Fractal fans respectively.  The fans are PWM and can be ramped from 500rom all the way up to 2000rpm  The given Noise figure of 20dB(A) seems awefully low, so we guess we'll have to just take our own reading as per usual.

Very nice. Love the fact that it uses "real" fittings to add to the aesthetics.

Shame it says warranty void on the fittings though. Fans don't excite me much either. Other than that though yeah man, bang on !

Ta for the review.Quote

Is it really £115 for the 360mm radiator? That is great value.Quote

It is. Add res and GPU block and you've got a capable yet cheap loop Quote
