What We Liked

There is a lot to like about the NZXT Kraken Z53 RGB 240mm. From the beautiful aesthetics to the outstanding cooling performance, it does everything you expect from a CPU cooler. However, the LCD is the star of the show, since it adds a lot more personalization to your build than any regular AIO liquid cooler. The software is also highly responsive when it comes to customizing the screen.

What We Disliked

While being the cheapest Z-class AIO cooler, the NZXT NZXT Kraken Z53 is by no means a cheap CPU cooler. With a hefty price tag of $250 US dollars. There is no lack of affordable AIO liquid coolers in the market, making the NZXT Kraken Z53 RGB an expensive choice for the average PC user.

Verdict

In conclusion, the NZXT Kraken Z53 RGB is an excellent 240mm AIO liquid cooler and looks stunning in white. A decent step up from the previous generations of Kraken coolers with a cleaner look. Moreover, the LCD gives it a personal touch and the NZXT Cam application has also been updated to make the software more responsive.

Pros

  • Low Noise

Cons

  • Expensive
  • No LCD Display

If you are in the market for a 360mm AIO Liquid that not only looks impressive, but delivers solid gaming performance, the ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 RGB White Edition is the way to go. The ROG STRIX LC 360 LC series sits right between the TUF Gaming coolers and ASUS’s RYUJIN II series of coolers.

The ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 RGB White Edition is an AIO liquid cooler from ASUS with a closed-loop design that comes with ARGB fans, as the name suggests. The pump used here is Asetek’s 7th generation pump that comes with a custom pump cap.

Strikingly, ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 RGB has a pump speed of 2800 RPM, controlled using the PWM. The radiator has three fan slots for 3 120mm ARGB fans. The fans start operating at a speed of 840 RPM but can go up to an absurd speed of about 2500 RPM, which is a bit higher than most AIO liquid coolers. Moreover, the operating sound for the fans is 37.6 dB(A) when functioning at average speed. The fans have a static pressure of around 5.0mm, and an airflow of 80.95CFM.

The fan RGB can be connected using the 3 pin 5v ARGB headers, which makes the RGB controllable using the motherboard or RGB hubs. However, the pump’s RGB can only be controlled using either ASUS’s software or USB. There is no way of controlling the Pump’s RGB using the extended 4 pin connector.

The radiator is made out of aluminum, and it comes with sleeved rubber tubes as usual. The tube has a length of 380mm, and the radiator itself is 121mm wide. What stands out is the cap on the pump block, which has a thick white outline with the ASUS logo shining with RGB under a glossy black cap. RGB is also visible on four of the places around the boundary of the cap which almost revolve around the base of the whole cap, giving it a more unique look.

Similar to other high-end coolers, The ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 RGB White Edition can also be controlled using the Aura Sync software like all other ASUS components. You can use the software to manage the RGB and sync it with other components.

What We Disliked

This cooler is a whole package. The incredible cooling performance and the premium build quality are the things that stand out the most. 

ASUS has used premium materials for the cooler that feels solid. The 7th generation Asetek pump delivers phenomenal performance.

Being a remarkable brand, ASUS also offers 6 years of warranty with this CPU cooler. The ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 does everything right in a somewhat reasonable price range.

What We Disliked

The fans tend to get extremely noisy when operating at maximum fan speed. It’s better to use the fans at around 60 to 70 percent of their actual speed to keep the noise levels as low as possible while maintaining decent cooling performance. The ROG STRIX LC 360 is a fairly expensive CPU cooler, and rightfully so; however, for this price, one would expect it to have as many features as its competitors.

Verdict

To sum up, the ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 RGB should have no problem cooling the Ryzen 9 5000 series CPUs. It’s even capable of cooling Intel’s latest 12th generation Alder Lake CPUs; however, it might get noisy. ASUS has again done a brilliant job of putting together an excellent AIO cooler for high-end processors. The ASUS ROG STRIX LC 360 RGB has taken the spot as the Best White 360mm AIO Liquid Cooler.

Pros

  • Budget-Friendly

Cons

  • Less performance

 The Thermaltake TH 240 ARGB Snow Edition is a budget-friendly 240mm AIO liquid cooler from there. It’s an entry-level AIO cooler marketed towards beginners rather than enthusiasts, and it does an excellent job with that.

The copper base-plated water block provides brilliant heat conductivity. Additionally, this cooler consists of a 240mm radiator with a 400mm rubber sleeved tube. The 120mm wide radiator has high efficiency, and its relatively compact size allows it to fit in any case with 240mm radiator support. 

Surprisingly, the fans can ramp up to a speed of 1500 RPM with a noise output of 28.2 dB-A. It’s relatively silent when performing under normal load. The fans have a maximum airflow of 59.28 CFM and a maximum pressure of 1.31mm-H20.

On top of that, the installation is fairly simple too, choose your backplate according to the processor you use and then mount the fans to your radiator. Install the backplate on the motherboard. The contact pad can be installed by lining it up to the bracket, this ensures that there is no metal to metal contact. Remove the previously installed backplate, if you have one and install the current one. After this, all you will have to do is install the radiator by screwing in all the screws in place.

An RGB controller is included just in case your motherboard does not support addressable RGB. You can use software such as ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light Sync to customize the RGB and sync it across all components.

The Thermaltake TH 240’s performance far exceeds that of the stock coolers you get with AMD and Intel CPUs so you should feel a significant difference when upgrading from those.

What We Liked

The Thermaltake TH 240 ARGB Snow Edition is one of the few coolers that are budget-friendly alternatives to other high-end 240mm AIO liquid coolers. It provides a nice blend between performance and price. One feature that is always impressive is that the pump and the fans are almost inaudible, with noise levels as low as 28.2 dB-A. Due to its excellent pricing and decent performance, it has been chosen as the Best overall white AIO cooler.

What We Disliked

While the Thermaltake TH 240 ARGB provides good value, the cooling performance is a bit lacking. It fails to provide sufficient cooling for processors like the Ryzen 9 5900x and the Intel I7 12700k. Insufficient cooling in these cases leads to thermal throttling, which is not ideal for a high-end build.

 Verdict

While the Thermaltake TH 240 ARGB won’t be able to overclock your CPU, it’s for people who are looking to upgrade from a stock cooler to an AIO liquid cooler. It delivers excellent performance for the price range and will be enough for most mid-range processors. If you plan to purchase a white CPU cooler that is reasonably priced and delivers solid performance, then the Thermaltake TH 240 ARGB Snow Edition is the way to go

What We Disliked

There isn’t much to complain about regarding the Arctic Freezer 34. One thing to note here is that the Freezer 34 has no RGB at all. While the white design looks stunning, we would have appreciated the inclusion of RGB. This economical cooler is not compatible with a lot of processors either. In terms of the design, The Arctic Freezer 34 has a simple single fan design with no fancy lighting whatsoever. While the CPU cooler by no means looks bad, the plastic finish around it makes it look cheap compared to other air coolers.

Verdict

Ultimately, the Arctic Freezer 34 offers good cooling for its small size and budget-friendly pricing. If you’re in the market for a White CPU Cooler that provides good cooling at a much lower price, then the Freezer 34 is a perfect pick for you. The Arctic Freezer 34 is ideal for budget builds.

How We Chose The Best White CPU Coolers

When buying a CPU cooler for your processor, we need to make sure it fits your taste. Meeting every requirement is essential for the CPU cooler as it becomes a viable option for you to purchase. Here are some things we took into account when choosing the best White CPU Cooler.

Type

CPU coolers come in many different types, the most common of these types being air coolers and AIO liquid coolers. If you are looking for a cheap CPU cooler to replace the stock cooler, then air coolers are probably your best bet. However, if you are looking for something with the highest cooling potential, then liquid coolers are the way to go.

Size

When buying a good cooler for your CPU, you need to make sure it provides enough RAM and PCIe clearance. High-end RAM kits tend to get extremely warm when paired with huge coolers because they are not given enough space. A slimmer cooler provides enough room for the RAM to ‘breath’ since it improves the airflow, lowering the overall temperatures.

Budget

The most important factor and probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of purchasing a cooler is the budget. Choosing a budget can be difficult given the vast amount of options. Air coolers may perform slightly less than the AIO liquid coolers but they are generally less expensive than AIO liquid coolers, providing better value for your money. If you do not mind spending more on a cooler, AIOs liquid coolers are always a better option.

Efficiency

A cooler’s efficiency is mostly identified from the TDP; however, companies like Noctua have their very own measure for their cooler’s efficiency. The rated TDP of your cooler must exceed your CPU’s TDP, that too by a significant margin. 

Noise

Although getting a CPU cooler with more fans will increase the cooling performance, it also comes with a huge increase in noise levels. If that is a problem for you, you are better off getting a low-profile cooler with minimum noise levels.

Compatibility

You need to ensure that the CPU cooler you end up going with, supports your processor, otherwise it will just end up not fitting at all. A single cooler comes with different mounting brackets for different sockets. If your CPU socket is mentioned in the list of supported sockets then you should be good to go.

Benefits of White CPU Cooler

The availability of white CPU coolers is very scarce and it is always delightful to peer through a PC’s tempered glass that showcases a white CPU cooler. Even though, black coolers look decent, they are very common nowadays. It is easy to stand out from the crowd of black-themed cooler users by acquiring its complete opposite, a white one.

An all-white PC setup is glorified by the white CPU cooler as it is typically the first thing our eyes look at. Whether it is due to the enormous size of the DeepCool AS500 and its RGB or the NZXT Kraken Z53’s LCD with white borders, white CPU coolers draw attention to the heart of a PC, the processor.

All the other colors are not available unless one chooses to customize a cooler by himself. It is quite easier to paint the white cooler into other colors such as light pink because white is a light color and absorbs the paint and makes the pink lighter. Similarly, other lighter color combinations of color, like cyan and yellow, are also made possible, all thanks to our white CPU cooler. 

Drawbacks of White CPU Cooler

Alongside the benefits, it does come with a few drawbacks. Due to the cooler’s color being white, it can get dull over a lengthy period of time. The pump cover as well as the white nylon braided sleeves may appear off-white, losing its true white appearance which might be a downside to a lot of users.

Additionally, it may get scratches if on its edges and on the pump cover itself, giving it an older and cheaper look. Moreover, the LCD on the NZXT Kraken Z53 and the glossy pump cover of the ASUS ROG Strix LC 360 can get smudges, which destroys the glorious appeal of the otherwise reflective cover.

Finally, pairing an elegant white CPU cooler with a black-themed PC setup is a perfect recipe for ruining an otherwise heavenly build. There is a slim chance the setup looks decent, but more probably it won’t. Still, a white CPU cooler requires several other white accessories along with it, which proves to be a major downside. For instance, if someone is on a tight budget and has acquired an affordable White CPU Cooler (ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports White) at a discount while he already owns a black-themed PC, he has no other option but to install it.

Competition

If all of the previously mentioned CPU coolers were not what you are looking for, here are some other competitive coolers worth checking out.

Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4

The Previously tested Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 provides impressive performance and CPU compatibility.
