NZXT X53 Reviews

is nice and it keeps my Ryzen 5900 super cool

is easy to install, with no fuss with all the parts you need, only thing is I wish it indicates that it has an RGB controller so I didn't waste like 1 hour trying to know where that connection is supposed to go.

Good temps

On my 9700k keeps temps at 31C idle and never pass 60C while gaming. Note that this is in the small case of Ncase M1. The tubes are very flexible which helps in routing them in the tight space. The NZXT fans are good but still cannot beat the Noctua fans. Overall very good!

Sounds good, looks good!

It looks fantastic, it runs quietly and it does the job I was designed! I’m really enjoying it.

I ordered it from Japan as it wasn't available here on Amazon nor in local shops. Smooth shipment and we'll packaged, now working really fine in my NZXT case. Undeniably gorgeous.

If your looking for a cooler that looks great while performing great then look no further. Make sure when purchasing that u know the proper dimensions of your case and proper compatibility since there are different sizes . Besides that this cooler keeps my ryzen 7 3700x below 62c under heavy load . No complaints yet

So happy with paying the extra and going with this cooler. I run a Ryzen 5 5600x and a MSI 3060ti Trio with warzone for four hours and temps never past 53*C

Will this work on intel lag 1151 motherboards ? I built my pc and am looking to upgrade , I don’t know if the cooler spec is measured by the cpu socket or not as I am not fully educated on that matter. But is this a universal cooler or only specific boards ?
