Rated 4 out of 5 by Docbritten1 Kraken X61
This really is a great product especially if you have a high end Amd processor.There is one flaw, the driver for a this kraken may cause issues with some computers....The blue screen of death may appear saying Drver IRQL not less or Equal asstor64.sys.
The hardware error in the system I think is 910l ,you need to down load a Antec cooler driver,then the pump kicks into life and what great performance you get...Trust me it's worth the money form Scan Computers...

Rated 3 out of 5 by AphoticSketch Can't Complain
I'm getting really low temperatures so can't complain. Had a bit of a nightmare with air bubbles at first but a bit of time spent fiddling around eventually sorted that out. At least my PC doesn't sound like a water feature now.
Personally I think it is quite overpriced, and the LED's aren't flat colours. You can see hints of other colours shining through.
The fans are quiet when everything is running low, but as soon as you turn them up a bit the sound level begins to rival the noise output of my hoover.
I intend to keep this product because despite my gripes it looks very minimalistic and really makes my rig look good. Also I can't argue with the performance. However, given what I know now if I were to buy a new cooler I would probably choose something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skyqpic Very good product
I bought this one because I have heard of lots of good reviews. However, it's not the cheapest all-in-one liquid cooler.
I am using it with i7-5820K. I haven't over clock the CPU. So with default settings, the CPU is 35 degree in idle after the computer is switched on for 30 mins. When I play games, it never reached 50 degree so far...
In terms of noise, I don't have another cooler to compare with...The fans are quiet in my opinion.
Overall, very good cooler!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylee Good solid piece of kit
Solid AIO cooler, easy install and high quality build. The CAM software works a treat and gives decent user defined curves. The unit is nice and quite when running, even when running in performance mode the fans are very very bearable.
The PWF fan ports are a god send if you want to do a push/pull config giving you ample power to feed fans and additionally control them from CAM.
Usual high quality product from NZXT and fantastic next day delivery from Scan :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raider1 Excellent - great cooler
Replacement for 5 year old water cooler which was starting to fail. I knew in advance that I would have to modify my case but I had plenty of room in my Mozart TX; so make sure it will fit in your case before you buy. Simple to fit and great software but make sure you install the software before plugging in the USB lead. Reduced my 48 degrees idle 920 i7 (overclocked to 4ghz) to 35 degrees to give you an idea of what it can do. Only negative point is the fans are a little noisy but not intrusive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WebFerret Cool cooler
I've not actually installed this yet - bought it for an upcoming build (Skylake) when released along with parts for a new current build 97Z.
But what I can say is why I chose this over Corsar's H110i.
Read a whole lot of reviews and on balance this came out top, and the CAM software is very cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vulterey Powerful cooler for power CPU's
NOTE: I've changed fans from kit for 2 x Noctua NF-A14 ULN Fan 140mm, so any opinions below, especially noise related my be related to it. But from the other side those Noctua fans are less air pressure efficient, however it didn't have any bad impact on overall efficiency of whole set, as you will see from below.
Quite easy to mount, very good performance even in silent mode. I've got i7 4930K OC to 4.5 GHz with 1.44 Volts and in idle my CPU is cooler than my body ;) around 29-30 degrees. On Prime 95 under 100% load and Silent Mode, after 1 hour temp hasn't exceed 62 degrees. Not perfect but handy CAM software is quite helpful to do settings, reads set led color etc.
Overall I am very happy with this purchase. Well done NZXT !
