Have you ever wanted to loop a short video from the inside of your PC? Why, of course you have.

NZXT is allowing attention-seeking enthusiasts to do just that with its new RGB all-in-one Kraken Z-3 liquid cooler series. The lineup, which comprises the Z63 (280 mm) and Z73 (360 mm), features LCD screens that can be used to not only display vital system health data, but animated GIFs as well.

That’s an arguably excessive level of bling and swagger for even the most exotic of setups, but nobody is going to deny how cool this can look with the right clips. Those who have already decked their systems out with every combination of RGB imaginable are sure to love it.

The visual customization is powered by NZXT’s PC monitoring solution, NZXT CAM. This is a free program that serves as the control hub for the company’s various products and their functions, such as lighting and fan speeds. Users can also track their system status (e.g., performance, temperatures) through the app, or even during games with an in-game overlay.

Additionally, NZXT has refreshed its LCD-less (but still capable) Kraken X-3 series. The RGB infinity mirror design has been improved with a larger ring, which can be rotated to ensure proper orientation of the logo. It also features a built-in channel for adding other NZXT RGB products.
