NZXT Kraken X42, 140mm All-In-One CPU Hydro Cooler with RGB Lighting, CAM Control, 1x140mm PWM Fan is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pump failure after 5 months My system suddenly shut down one evening and when I finally managed to boot back in to windows my CPU was 100c and the pump had failed. Trying to RMA now with NZXT but maybe I should have gone through Scan. I expect better from NZXT to be honest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 140mm. Build quality is excellent on this cooler. Love the pumps "infinity" design. It is also very quiet even when pump is at 100%. This has been fitted int my mini-itx system which is Fractal design core 500. It was a squeeze but works perfect. Only gripe is the CAM software, its really lacking in fan curve customisation but has plenty of features for LED control and such. However, the price is expensive for a 140mm. But think of it like Macbooks; overpriced for the specifications they have, but they are of a high standard and solidly built. This cooler was installed with a Noctua 140mm Industrial PPC 2000 PWM fan so i cannot comment on NZXT's stock fan supplied. Temps are 60-70C during gaming on an overclocked 6700k.

Questions & Answers

Thermal paste

Does this come pre-applied with thermal paste? Or will I need to buy thermal paste separately?
Asked by: saito
Thermal Paste comes pre-applied. But no additional paste is supplied other than that one time use amount. So if you're going to be unistalling it again soon, grab a tube of some high perfornamce stuff and us that from the start.
