Valkyrie DRAGONFANG 360 AIO Cooler Review

A Closer Look

The Dragonfang is a great-looking cooler, with a white design and a few silver highlights on the pump, it really pops and should look stunning in any PC system.

As you can see, it comes with a slim 360mm radiator, pretty much the same one one the SYN360, but that’s not a bad thing, as that was a great-looking cooler too.

Again, this cooler has the same thick sleeving on the tubing too, it’s high quality and while durable, it still has a good level of flexibility.

The key difference between the SYN360 and the Dragonfang is the pump design. The SYN360 has a more premium LCD display built into it, allowing for videos and gifs to be played. However, the Dragonfang goes for a stylish ARGB Valkyrie logo and a circular design.

What I love about this one is that the pump top is mounted on a bearing with a weight in the bottom edge, so it doesn’t matter how you orientate the cooler mount or your PC, the logo is always facing the right way up like those spinners you get on some fancy alloy wheels. It’s a small detail, but one that will have a big impact on the aesthetics of your system. It’s also open on the sides, that metal ring is floating on the front!

The copper plate on the bottom is nice and large, so dealing with the more prominent AMD and Intel CPUs should not be an issue. It supports all the major sockets too, with Intel’s 1150, 1151, 1155, 1156, 1200, 1700, 2011, 2011-3, 2066, and 1700 sockets, as well as both AM4 and AM5 for AMD users.

The fans are great, with a high-performance, high-static-pressure design. Rather than ARGB on the fan blades, Valkyrie has equipped them with RGB highlights on the corners. A more subtle, and rather stylish approach that’s not as in your face as some ARGB fans tend to be. They also have daisy changing cables too, making for easy cable management

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
