Henry Cavill Proves Once Again He's King Of The Nerds With PC Build

Henry Cavill Proves Once Again He's King Of The Nerds With PC Build

Henry Cavill is a busy man, indeed. In addition to being an actor, Cavill also has a full-time job as king of the nerds. We bow to you our liege.


At the moment, Cavill is busy filming the third season of Netflix’s The Witcher - although production was temporarily ground to a halt last week - but outside of work, the actor is very open about his nerdy hobbies. Whether it’s due to his love of Warhammer 40,000 or World of Warcraft, Cavill has unintentionally become a nerdy icon and his latest PC build has only solidified his royal status.

Speaking of The Witcher, it's about time that Ciri got her own game. Check out our reasoning below.



Taking to Instagram, Cavill announced that his PC’s AIO cooler had given up the ghost and that it was time to upgrade and replace the component. As reported by PC Gamer, it looks like Cavill opted for a NZXT Kraken Z73 as a replacement but swapped out the default fans for brown and beige Noctuas.

Cavill proceeded to show off the final result which looked clean and swish, and I’m not going to pretend to be a technical expert who can provide any more detail than that.


Speaking about the project, Cavill wrote, “Due to excessive transit over the years, and no doubt the recent heat wave, my AIO cooler decided to give up on me (which is a computer thing for those scratching their heads right now). Soooo while replacing it I decided to upgrade my fans as well. These little beauties run niiiiice and quietly. I still have 2 more on the way to complete the set, but I became enormously impatient and installed the ones I had anyway. And for those in the know, don't worry, those temps are in game.”

The project has likely kept Cavill busy during The Witcher’s COVID-19 enforced production break, but filming is set to get underway again very soon. Still, Cavill’s all set up now to crack on with a bit of gaming on his day off.
