Product Showcase


As is customary, we begin with the un-boxing — well, everything has been packaged, padded, and bundled safely in the box prior to our arrival. Let's pull the package open right now. 



Yeah, it does look like the Celcius a bit, but the lumen is vastly different. The most significant distinction between the two is that the Celsius is sourced from Asetek, the Lumen is built by Apaltek, a lesser-known Chinese ODM. Once opened up you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting of the radiator, fan, tubing, pump/cooling block. Add to that a bit of thermal paste, and an RGB controller with accompanying wires/cables. 



You'll spot a back-plate that supports a wide variety of CPU sockets; Intel LGA 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 1150 / 1200 and AMD Socket AM3 / AM4 based processors can be used in combination with this cooler. 

Included are:

  • Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets
  • Two Fans 
  • Radiator mounting screws
  • Thermal compound (applied)
  • Quick Start Guide

Summed up, once unboxed you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fans, and brackets + back-plate that supports a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors.  If you look to the far right of the radiator you can see a refill cap. Handy, but the kit must come out for you to be able to refill it of course.
