Fractal Design Kelvin T12 Review


It's fair to say we've never really been a big fan of 120mm radiator based AIOs here at OC3D.  The reason for this has mainly been that in order for them to achieve the temperatures that enable them to compete with decent traditional tower based units they often have to resort to high speed and invariably noisy fans.  Having looked at the performance of the S36 and S24 however, we're hopeful that the T12 will be able to achieve decent results without us having to reach for the ear defenders.  In a great many respects, the T12 is identical to the other two coolers in the Kelvin range with the exception that it comes as a push pull set up out of the box, the "T" if you haven't guessed already standing for twin.  The T12 also looks to have a slightly different and thicker radiator, which might see it edge further ahead in the performance tests than we would otherwise expect.  Time and Torture will tell.  In the meantime let's have a look at the full Technical Specification.

TTL - can you add the 4.6Ghz graph into the performance section of the review.

There's a reference to this chart in the review but the chart isn't shown.

It didn't make it into the 4.6 Club. There's a bit at the bottom of page 6.Quote
