This review is from: NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM
FX 8320 clocked from 3.5GHz to 4.6 GHz. Voltage set at 1.400V. Prime 95 burn for 4 hours. Core Temp registered 49C. I used an infrared thermometer to check the socket temp which clocked in at 48C, so I believe my temps to be accurate.
The radiator ends extend past the fans by a 1/2 inch on either side length ways. Examine your case before you buy this.
A Hyper 212 from Cooler Master is a true oddity. It ranges from $20 to $25 bucks and for some reason it is nearly the best out there. Before I bought my Kraken I used the Hyper 212 on my 4.6GHz 8320. Temps in Prime 95 peaked at 58C and remained there during the burn in test. The tricky part is there's a large price gap for that 9C difference. That being said the Kraken is the best I've seen in the aio liquid coolers. But in the end I don't know it was worth it because only benchmark software can tell me there is a difference.
