NZXT has just announced the release of their CAM 2.0 PC Monitoring Software. The new version 2.0 has double the data detection and they have done a complete overhaul of the UI for CAM Basic, Kraken+, GRID+. If you are not familiar with the CAM software it makes it quite easy to monitor and maintain your PC.
NZXT is a company that we typically know for their PC cases and cooling devices. They have made a great name for themselves in these markets. Well at CES this year they announced a new product that brings them to a brand new market. The product is called DOKO and it is a PC streaming device. PC streaming and streaming services have become extremely popular over the past few years. It seems everyone is coming out with a streaming box or device. We know NZXT puts great quality into their cases so we hope they can bring that to the DOKO. The DOKO is also strictly a streaming device, you cannot load apps on it or does not come with pre-loaded apps. The DOKO does have some very unique features and we think that is what sets it apart from other streaming devices out there. Will this device become a staple in our home theater setup? Read on as we find out!
This Fall saw the S340 lead the way for NZXT in the entry-level case category, bringing premium quality and innovative design to the sub $70 space. Today we’re pleased to announce the availability of the S340 in two new stylish colors: Matte Black paneling with either Gloss Blue or Gloss Red accents. Both colors will be widely available to all NZXT sales partners.
Often times we receive several items at the same time that a manufacturer would like us to review. Typically this occurs when a new line of products has been released or a major update has been done and today is exactly that. With the introduction of their CAM software, NZXT has released an updated version of most of their products featuring this new connectivity. Today we’ll be taking a close look at NZXT’s newest 120mm AIO, the Kraken X31. NZXT has some notoriously well loved and great performing coolers in their armory, let’s find out if their newest, smallest offering lives up to those same standards.
Computer cases of today are so much better and smarter than they were back when we first started modding and building computers of our own, but some of these new cases come along and stands out in the middle of the crowd and silently screams “look at me”. One of those cases is the NZXT H440-Designed by Razer (CA-H440W-RA). Basically the Razer engineering team along with the already winning NZXT team got together and took what was already one of the most popular computer enthusiast cases around, the NZXT H440 and together they both collaborated to make it an even more superior gaming oriented NZXT H440 computer case.
NZXT’s online store is called the NZXT Armory and they will be having a pretty good Black Friday sale. NZXT has sent us over their entire Black Friday ad which has some great deals on Cases, CPU coolers and more. If you were looking to build a new system or upgrade your case be sure to check out these deals!
So what, and why the history lesson you ask? You’re here to read about computers and hardware of course. Well interestingly enough hardware powerhouse NZXT has reinvented their simple but popular Grid fan hub. Intriguingly this new version of the hub is has been titled the Grid+. Being such a simple object we are thoroughly curious what NZXT has done to “add” to the original Grid. Indeed is the new Grid+ worthy of this new moniker?
For several years now NZXT has been reaping the benefits of listening to the computer building/modding community and delivering products that they actually want. This in turn has led to one of the most loyal customer bases and served to increase the popularity of their brand. So NZXT has amassed what is essentially an all-star team of products ranging from power supplies to cases to CPU coolers and pretty much everything in between save for the bits that do the number crunching. Fortunately for us they haven’t let up yet. Today we will be checking out their newest offering in the AIO cooler category the Kraken X41. Follow along as we find out if this cooler deserves a starting position, or an eternal ride of shame on the bench.
In this instance, we will be looking closely at the (CA-S340W-W1) in short the NZXT S340 / White Edition. Its boxy look’s are nice and practically chocked full of all the ideas that professional “Mod Men of the past” have been custom building and crafting into their own builds for years. In fact, this author was given an opportunity to patent one of these ideas featured in this very case many moons ago, but I was lazy and I passed on the occasion. Well no one is perfect I guess, including this lazy reviewer. The great abundance of flare and near modder’s styling makes this NZXT S340 the “Box that Rocks” and as you can see this reviewer is a fan already, but not all of us see things the same way, so let’s get this NZXT party started.
