    This is my first AIO, and I have loved every moment with it! Installation was a breeze thanks to NZXT's online guide. The cooler remains fairly quiet, even when the fans are at higher RPM. And of course, it is absolutely gorgeous.

    Great looks and great performance. Got it on push pull since the radiator is smaller than the X62. CAM software needs some work as the RGB lights would sometimes not turn on or change color when the PC boots up from off and sleep. Closing and restarting the application fixes the issue, but it is inconvenient.

    from completed build StriX99

    Pricey but super sweet looking, highly customizable unit and it is operating quiet. I don't like all the non-sleeved cables running to the cpu block, the non-copper radiator and the crazy cam software (which is running a bit better now).

    from completed build "Fuuka" gaming build 2017

    Pros: - easy to install - very sleek design - mirror effect - software controlled - sexy

    Cons: - quality control, you have to be lucky to get a working/non crooked one

    This cooler happened to just come out as I was looking for an AIO, and there were a few reasons as to why I chose this over my other option, the Corsair h110i. First off, look how sexy that infinity mirror is, and the led functionality is incredible. While looking into reviews, I also noticed that the Kraken was much quieter than that of the h110i, something to take note if you are in the market for a cooler. The only thing that is a minor concern is the CAM software that is used to control the AIO. Sometimes I have to reinstall the software to get it to work properly, but because it is so new, it should only take a few updates which should come soon to fix it overall. This is as of Jan. 31st btw.

    Keeps my CPU nice and cool even under load. My only issue with it is that the cooling block is rather large and blocks the first RAM slot on my motherboard. Not an issue for me right now, but it could be if you want to use all four slots in your build.

    Also the infinity mirror lighting effect is tight.

    What a beauty! This liquid cooler is so much more than just that. It is a statement and a workhorse all in one. It is really easy to install, comes with everything in the box, and even the tubes aren't so rigid which really helps when test-fitting everything. When you use this with the S340 Elite, you're able to fit the fans behind it which you cant do with many other coolers. The software was easy to use as well. I've used the Kraken X61 and Corsair H100i V2 recently on other builds and both were really good, but this is just a little better. The price comparatively? Oh boy...

    Love the looks of this. Pump is quiet and software is very easy to use.

    I expected a lot more from this cooler from all of the reviews and information on the internet. When I first tested my rig, I was getting really high idle and load temps ... idling ~50C .. gaming hit 80's a few times. Bad. After a lot of troubleshooting and reapplying thermal paste I found that the standoffs did not thread into where they should have been on the back plate. I did not detect this at first since there is supposed to be some form of slack/gap, but I finally noticed that I could see ~5 threads on the standoff screw even after fully hand tightened and there was just tooo much space. In the end, I had to use PLIERS (carefully) to force the standoffs into the back plate the rest of the way because I didn't feel like waiting for a RMA/return. After doing that I finally have what I would call acceptable temps, but I still don't think its 100% and could get better with one that didn't have QC issues.
