5 out of 5 eggsExcellent investment!

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: The X61 could cool a nuclear reactor. I keep finding new stuff in the CAM software and it works very well. Much quieter than my previous cooler (lapped Thermalright Ultra 120 True Black with Akasa Viper 140mm fan) and performs insanely better. In Silent mode, temps dropped by 5C under load while fan speeds never went beyond 35%. In Performance mode, temps dropped by 10C under load with 75% fan speed. Easy to install (see Other Thoughts).

Cons: Not necessarily a con, but would have loved a to-scale mounting template included in the box.

Other Thoughts: Installed in a Thermaltake Level 10 GT which is only compatible with a 240mm rad. I knew this and planned on removing the top fan and cutting out enough metal to allow proper airflow, and created the necessary mounting holes. A template would have been lovely, but I ended up creating my own and it worked out in the end. The end result is a satisfactory mounting solution with amazing cooling performance and reduced noise. I paired the cooler with Gelid GC-EXTREME thermal grease. This is cooling a Core i7 970 overclocked to 4GHz @ 1.344v.

4 out of 5 eggsMaybe

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: Looks Amazing
Keeps my CPU at 25c idle and 38c load even after a long gaming session

Cons: Hard to install! The fans do not have that handy dandy indicator for which way they blow, it says its compatible with the S340 but it was a real challenge to get it in.
CAM software is terrible. It looks nice and has graphs and that's about it.

Other Thoughts: I would maybe get it again. Knowing that its a bit confusing for installing it, its been worth it

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps my i5-6600K nice and cool

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: This thing is huge, 280mm but fits nicely in my NZXT H440
Keep my i5-6600K @ 28C idle and 38C-42C under load. I don't stress test or OC but that is the highest I've seen it go.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsDecent cooling kit

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: Customizable lighting
Easy to setup
Includes hardware for almost every socket imaginable

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my s340 case, and it looks great inside of it, while keeping my CPU ice cold.

One thing some people may want to be aware of when using this inside of the S340 is that it can only be mounted with the fans facing the outside of the case; the wiring for the USB and audio ports on the case will not allow space for the radiator, as some people may want the case with the fans on the inside of the radiator. Not an issue for me, but some people may want to mount it that way.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a boss

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: -Cools my cpu like a boss (I have the fan speed set to low and it idle temps hover around 30 to 35 Celsius, haven't really done stress testing yet)
-RGB led lights look sick
-Pretty easy to install
-With some adjustments to fan curve, very quite while doing everyday stuff besides gaming

Cons: None Really.

Other Thoughts: Totally worth the money. Looks great in my NZXT Noctis 450 case.

5 out of 5 eggsWould recommend to anyone!

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: Product is of good quality. CPU running at 22C without load, 36C under load. Install was easy, online instructions were VERY simple to follow (this was the first liquid cooler I have ever bought/installed.) Cooler appears to do its job well, does it QUIETLY, especially compared to OEM heatsink/fan from AMD.

Cons: None that I know of yet.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Kraken X61

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X61 RL-KRX61-01 280mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution

Pros: Very simple to install and use. Installed this in a Thermaltake Level 10 gt case. Ended up removing the top exhaust fan to replace with the radiator. Keeps CPU temps low even when under a load. CAM app provides the end user with plethora amount of information about the system. It also provides the user with control over fan speeds which can be adjusted based on profile settings(Silent, Performance, Manual and Custom profiles). The app also allows the end user to change the LED on the pump. Pretty cool feature if you have a window on your case.

Cons: Wasn't free?

Other Thoughts: Be mindful of the type of case this will be installed in. Though I don't view this as a con, the radiator is a bit large and requires some additional room.

Was curious if there would ever come a time when these would be modular. Lets say for example I wanted to add a water block for the GPU.
