Thinking it was top of the line and the flashy lights that make my rig look good I was assuming for price this unit was as safe as it can get. I did my homework and "Pump Failure" was on the top of the list in 1/5 reviews, against my better judgment I bought it thinking it was not going to happen to me...5 months in THE PUMP FAIL TO WORK fired my CPU i7-7700k. Mind you I did not Overclock my PC, I just wanted to keep it as cool as posible to extend it's life expectancy a few years more, it had no stress nor overwork.
- Relatively easy to install
- Near silent
- Looks great
- can dissipate a ton of heat
- requires a USB 2.0 or compatible 3.0 header on the motherboard
--for my mini ITX build I needed a USB 3.1 converter and a standard USB to USB mini connector
--most modern mini ITX motherboards do not have two USB 2.0 headers so my front panel stole the only header
--without the USB connection the pump and fan controls do not work which locks the system into "airplane engine" mode
- The pump/heatsink is larger than expected
--this is an important issue to keep in mind if you are going for a mini ITX setup
--make sure you point the water tube ends toward your PCIe slots
The fans on this device are of high quality. I've purchased many high-end after market fans and these stack up with the best. My system is nearly silent. Do not waste your money on buying two more FANs. The pump made some gurgling noise the first hour or so I ran it and cleared up shortly thereafter. I can only hear a whisper under load from inside the case. This includes my Gigabyte Watercooled 1080 GTX and the power supply. Most of the time I can't hear anything at all. It is actually quieter than my 27" iMAC.
Please note you must plug the fans into the provided cable in port 1 and 2 (not 3 and 4), plug the cable into the correct header on the motherboard, and have the USB cable plugged in for the system to work correctly. There is a handy online diagram that takes you through it at NZXT's site.
Finally, the most important part. The latest Kaby Lake processors are known for running hot and having wildly different thermal properties depending on the BIN. Even so, this cooler keeps the proc running in the upper 20s C at idle and low 40s C under load while barely running louder than a whisper.
Only issue is Amazon's being short on these but be patient (note to myself) and you will get one.
BTW, I have all 3 versions (X42, X52 & X62) on 3 custom built PCs. This one with the largest radiator is the best one to get.
The problem is with the packaged CAM software. It is trash that has problems detecting the Kraken as being in the system and has the tendency to reset the settings you've input. I don't care about the LEDs in the Kraken since my PC is in a closet for noise, but those that care about the exposed light patterns this could be a problem. Additionally the default hardware mode for the Kraken is Silent mode, but the difference between the Silent mode and Performance mode is only 300rpm on the fan and is equally silent. So it is kinda annoying when it resets that i'm getting slightly less performance.
If they split the Kraken management node out of CAM (but still allowed it to hook in for those that want that monitoring software) so that you could flash your settings onto the Kraken chip like a BIOS and then NEVER have to open the software again then I'd easily bump this up to 5 stars. As it is, the CAM software is annoying but the product still performs magnificently even just default settings.
