NZXT Kraken X52, 240mm All-In-One CPU Hydro Cooler with RGB Lighting, CAM Control, 2x120mm PWM Fans is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kraken X52 loose backplate and massive temps! First of all, I LOVE Scan and they are by far my favourite supplier, this is no reflection on their customer service. I recently bought the X52 to cool my new 7700K, on my shiny new ASUS ROG Strix Z270G mobo. I followed the install instructions VERY carefully, but found the backplate (installed using the correct Intel 115X standoffs) was very loose, meaning that it was physically impossible to tighten the CPU block down fully. This essentially meant that the block would be riding/floating about the CPU surface and not mating correctly. This theory was supported by the fact that the standoffs could be pushed back and forth and were not snug against the mobo (despite plenty of finger tightening). I quickly researched online and found LOTS of other people with this issue, some of which resolved the problem by over-tightening the standoffs with pliers and others which used things to pack out the backplate so that 'less' of the threaded lugs showed through the mounting holes, meaning a tighter fit. I opted to pack out the backplate, at the back of the mobo, with very small bits of cardboard (non-conductive). This meant that the standoffs were now tight up against the mobo. So, I installed the CPU block thinking that this would overcome the 'bad design', booted my new rig and found that the CPU temps were climbing very quickly. I turned off my machine and re-checked all installed cables, as per the install guide on the NZXT website, and started up again. Once more, the CPU temps were climbing higher and higher (I shut down when it got to 75 deg). Keep in mind that this is brand new build, new mobo, new CPU and I'm using the pre-applied thermal paste. I only placed the CPU block down the once, taking care not to lift it and so assume that the unit comes with enough already applied. I haven't yet removed the block, but when I do, I'll obviously have to remove the paste and re-apply some Arctic Silver etc. I can only assume one of two things here: 1) The CPU block/pump is STILL not mating against the CPU, despite me taking measures to ensure the standoffs were tight against the mobo BEFORE mounting the block and fully tightening the thumb-screws. 2) I have a faulty pump Finally, the other thing that doesnt appear to work is that, when the pump is connected to CPU-FAN1 header, my mobo reports that CPU fan is missing. I've had no luck at all with this thing and I'm just about ready to give up with it and change for an air-cooler. It's my first foray into any sort of water cooling solution and it's been a rubbish experience so far. Perhaps you good folks can give me some guidance? I've tried raising a ticket with NZXT, but so far have had zero feedback. Once again, I've shopped with Scan for years - they're amazing and this is no reflection on them. I hope you publish this review so that others can be informed about some of the above, common issues. Thanks guys Craig

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good looks, very quiet with excellent performance, poor software pros + performance is excellent low temps low noise looks great and can match hue+ colour schemes cons - VERY poor software, 3 software revisions and still waiting for NZXT to correct the hardware detection failure. Software controls incorrect when using 4 hue+ light strips and Kraken in sync. If you can live with several software issues that NZXT seem to have trouble in resolving, then you will love this for the performance and how good this makes your machine look. It is only worth the money though if the looks are the top of your list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but performs insanely well I previously used a coolermaster seidon 120v as my cpu cooler and at full load was seeing temps of 75-80c i changed to the kraken which was very easy to install and looks beautiful might i add and at full load on my oc'd 4670k i see temps never exceeding 55c! Incredible cooler, i gave it a 4 for value as i dont like the fans it comes with and they are not very good static pressure fans so i swapped them out for corsair sp120 quiet edition fans.

Compatible with ASUS corsair Hero VI?

The video attached to the item on the site, suggests the backplate can be adjusted to fit different mounting holes. The ASUS corsair hero IV appears to have double mounting holes in the motherboard itself (AM3 + AM4?). Is the Kraken x52/x62 compatible with the ASUS corsiare hero VI out of the box? Or will an additional mounting bracket be required?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello, This is not compatible with AM4 out of the box, an additional mounting bracket is needed, which can be supplied by NZXT. Regards,
