This beautiful liquid cooler keeps my processor at a chilly 35C under load. The lighting customization is amazing and gives the core of your build a modern look.

Fantastic cooler keeps cpu well under 30C on full load, and it does it on quiet setting. Good looking unit. Cam software lets you costomize pretty much every thing including fans rpm and pump rpm independently. It could be a little bit cheaper though, but I guess you pay extra for the look. Nonetheless it performs extremely well.

It's so pretty! Worth the extra money just for the looks. Keeps the CPU most of the time no higher than 50c, in benchmarks I've seen it up to 60c. CAM software for controlling it can be a bit buggy at times however.

Looks very nice, very good customisation options and keeps the CPU nice and cool!

Great looking cooler, easy to install, good performance. Pushes on the closest RAM slot to the CPU, however.

Fan cooling felt soooo lame and budgety and full blown watercooling was a little too extreme for me. So I bought the Kraken x62! I was originally going to buy the Kraken x61 but low and behold the x62 was released. So i pre-ordered it, got it and absolutely love it. CAM was a little buggy in the beginning (colors werent staying and Kraken kept disappearing) but with the updates, everything is a lot better now. LEDs reflect the color scheme of my build. Green outside, Purple inside. Not very loud.

I was debating between the thermaltake riing 360 and the nzxt but decided that this would be enough, and matches the rest of the systems aesthetics better. From reading tons of different reviews, it seemed like people were loving cooler, and now i'm one of them. It's still a new product, so i'm hoping it won't develop problems in the near future. I currently have problems with the CAM software interface that controls the led lighting of the cooler, the driver constantly fails, which forces me to uninstall and reinstall before i can control the lighting on it. A bit of a bummer, but something totally fixable with future updates I hope.

It may be expensive, but its one of those things that once you see it you have to have it. The performance is top class for an AIO cooling better than most of the competition (if only by a few degrees). The new model pump is silent even at high speed and the fans can be ramped down so much that you wont hear them at all.

Great quality, plenty of accessories. Only bad part little unclear instructions but can easily figure it out.

What a beauty! This is the best looking AIO cooler on the marker and cools just about as good as it looks. I went with NZXT for all of my cooling. With a front mounted rad and two 140s as intake on the front I havnt seen temps above 50°C under load. The CAM software is pretty buggy and sometimes doesnt recognize my kraken, but NZXT is aware of the issue and hopefully the software gets fixed soon!
