NZXT is a well-known company in the computer hardware industry and has had some of the most sought after cases on the market in recent years. NZXT is always one step ahead of the competition when it comes to unique designs and this is most certainly one of the things that have led to their success. Over the years, NZXT have gathered up a nice little arsenal of products that includes cases, AIO CPU coolers, case fans, power supplies, case accessories and have recently also released an in-home streaming device called the Doko.

NZXT are always looking to better themselves and their products, which in turn, is always good for us users. In saying such, today I will be taking a look at the Kraken X41 AIP CPU Cooler which NZXT recently updated and in doing so they have made the radiator of the X41 24% thicker than that of the previous X40. One of the great things about AIO CPU coolers is that they will allow users to gain some of the performance benefits from water cooling in a sealed unit that requires no maintenance. This will not only allow users to expand the life of their hardware but will also allow them to push it further via overclocking, as the temperatures, will, in most cases, be lower than using a standard cooler.
