1 out of 5 eggsPiece of JUNK x60

Pros: claimed to be the best in performance at the time of purchase.

Cons: Software is glitchy as hell. cam is better as of the recent update but a year down the road. still the led wont work for the cam software. had a big issue with no temp readings and fan control til i got that sorted.

Other Thoughts: i got 2 of the x60s cuz forums stated it had slightly better performance then corsair. my first 2 leaked right out of the box, didnt even have to hook them up. rmad both of them no problem thanks to the good help of my buddies over at newegg. love you guys. after i received my new pair of x60s hooked em up got em running. had one for my cpu and other for my graphics card using the g10 bracket. well one one of the loops the wires frayed and snapped clean off rendering 1 loop useless. threw it right into the motherflippin garbage 140 bux wasted. now after about a year down the line i noticed an odd sound comming from my case almost sounding like coil whine. unplugged all my fans graphics card then finally the x60. YARP that odd telephone pole buzzing was comming from ye old nzxt. my buddy told me about this trash but i put my faith into this product because i really like the cases. i dont even think i can rma or return this junk a year down the road. hopefully this review helps somebody in the near future. stay away from nzxt . corsair bro... corsair

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply apologize for the condition of which the cooler came in, what we can say is that we do offer an RMA replacement for the water cooler. All we would need you to do is visit support.nzxt.com which you would be able to submit a request at the top right of the page. In turn we would be able to assist you with an RMA for the cooler itself. Also the new update with cam should allow you to change the LED colors for the cooler. What we would suggest is visiting http://camfeedback.nzxt.com/ which they would also be able to assist you with any software issues you might have. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsCAM Is Real Good Now

Pros: The newest version of CAM is outstanding. It's version 2.1.11. I never had many problems with any versions of CAM but this one is by far the best. Temps are correct, all hardware is detected and the layout is a major improvement over some of the previous versions.

My android devices can now pick up my computer readings with the new android CAM app. It works fine. NZXT has done a great job with this CAM version. I've written a few reviews already on the X61 and now I'm convinced it's even better than ever. No complaints out of me. The Kraken is outstanding.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but doesn't work with all NZXT cases

Pros: Keeps the system cooler than just the fans
Very quite
Great price

Cons: Doesn't work with NZXT Phantom case for mounting.
Thought it would work since it is made by the same company, but it doesn't. So it has to sit on top of the case without being secured down.
My fault for not double checking that it would work with the NZXT Phantom (Full) case.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost Silent

Pros: Silent run on performance setting with 4 Vipers ( AK-FN063 ) in push/pull running 32c at norm. also don't change the thermal material on it I have with Arctic Silver 5 and gitting same temp. so don't wast your money whats on it is good

Cons: Had to buy 2 more fans as well as replace the two that came this it . never used the ones that came with it

Other Thoughts: I was using a H70 with a 32mm shound and a Delta ( AFC1212D ) in push/pull setup and gitting same temps.Put it was not ,was not SILENT. Had they have inpro, the rad on this as they did with the X41 Ithink theyed have a hands down winner as well as about 4-7c temp drop.Planning on installing shound on this to see if I can git temp to drop,also will mach it with the H110i with and with out shounds. PS I think any good rad temp need to be 25-27c at idel. 4770k@4.4/1.210v with 2400Hz memory stable allday long. will update in a week

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like you hope

Pros: I wanted an easy-to-install and use water cooler. I've had a few of them and I thought I'd give this one a try based on reviews here and on YouTube. None are really that hard to install, but this one was a breeze, esp. if you are planning to install at the top of your case. I can see how it might be finicky to install at the back of some cases but that wasn't an issue for me (used an NZXT case). It works perfectly fine. I don't overclock my i7-5820 so I'm not too worried about temps. When I start tweaking, we'll see.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: The CAM software to regulate and monitor conditions isn't all that useful. I never use it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent water cooling option

Pros: I got this to fit inside an NZXT S340 & cool an overclocked i7-5820K @ 4.5ghz. Does a fantastic job. Keeps idle temps at 38C while under 100% full load stability burn tests it hovers in the low 70s. CAM 2.0 software to manage the fan & pump speeds works well. No complaints!

Cons: The CAM software only allows you to plot six custom liquid temp to fan performance points. Might be so they could sell their additional expensive fan controller I don't know. Not really a deal breaker or anything I just wanted more fine tuning options.

Other Thoughts: Excellent cooler, like it better then the H100i & H110 packages from Corsair. (have worked with both quite a bit) While not required I'm going to buy additional fans to put this in a Push/Pull config. (it already comes with the power adapters to run four fans built into it's wiring) If you're thinking about buying this for anything but high end overclocking this isn't required at all but if you want those 4.5-5ghz clocks it's something you should think about while ordering.

5 out of 5 eggsSubzero.

Pros: Installed this cooler for my Core i7 4790k CPU - idle temps are between 21-25C on all cores, despite a stable 4.8Ghz overclock. Max temps with Crysis 3 on Ultra settings and bunch of other applications running (Dolphin emulator, etc.) were between 45-52C. I am extremely impressed with this unit. Takes a bit to install (You'll need to rip out your motherboard to install the backplate, etc.), but highly worth the time and effort.

Cons: None. Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: The ability to change the LED color on the pump makes me ecstatic; it maintains the red/black theme my entire PC is built around.

5 out of 5 eggsKracken X61

Pros: Easy to install, just goto their site to view the online tutorial for installing it. This cpu cooler is a BEAST, worked right off the bat, no worries about pumps not working. Install the software to set max performance in manual mode and all set to OC!

Cons: Software sucks if you leave it to itself, but not enough to knock an egg.
Just run in manually and set fans to max for effect!

Other Thoughts: Running this in a NZXT 530 case
Crossblade Ranger ROG mobo
A10 7850k OC'd to 43ghz at 48c running Star Citizen (full load)
Absolutely love this cooler! Wish they'd make the same for GPU's!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler

Pros: Great Cooler, the RGB lit logo on the block it is nice works with many color schemes. It keeps my AMD FX 8350 cool and ready to go.

Cons: my biggest issue is that my pc still warns me my CPU fan is either not installed or it is running at 0 RPM. In a sense it is true but it was extra work to go through the BIOS to ignore the CPU fan error to directly boot windows

5 out of 5 eggsBest closed loop cooler for the money!

Pros: Whisper quiet, controllable RGB lights, simple monitoring software, tubes long enough for various radiator placement and should fit almost every case.

Cons: Very long tubes may look bad in smaller cases if not properly Routed, and the 3 pin connector that goes to the cpu fan header isn't long enough to route behind my motherboard so there's no real way to hide it. Neither of these Reasons are worth taking the raring down.

Other Thoughts: I love this cooler. I RMA'd a h100i for being to loud and uncontrollable, got this instead and I am so glad I did. The RGB lights look great in my next case. This thing is the best cooler in my opinion!
