Pros: I like all the room and it does give it the appearance that the case is a monster like it's specs; but this is just crazy.
Cons: This case is much larger then any normal consumer would need. If you are not doing heavy modding with your rig I would suggest something smaller.
Other Thoughts: This case is so large I have decided to go in the complete opposite direction towards mid tower range. H440 is what I will be getting next. Something that can fit everything well but still be a nice look and feel to it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is my third gigabyte mobo, I changed from the UDP7 to this as I didn't need the amount of customization or sli the other one offered.
Cons: I have never had issues with gigabyte motherboards up until now. Now my computer refuses to restart or turn off. This is after a fresh install of windows. After every configuration I can think of nothing seemed to help.
Soon I will be contacting gigabyte or seeing if I am able to exchange this for another model.
This review is from: NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM
Pros: The large surface area on the radiator is good so the liquid gets it's much needed cooling. It was easy to install (after some notes in the cons)
The ability to change the light means I can set it up match my overall case lighting (other features I see as useless due to the location of my computer)
Cons: The included program (I downloaded from online) seems like it could be a bit more robust. I have had it crash on my a few times running windows 8.1 64bit.
Illustrations during installing were at times confusing and indistinguishable of other included parts.
the copper base appears to have a cylindrical buff on it when it should be a flat buff. When you take on water cooler the point is to keep it as cool as possible, and those ridges do not help that goal. After a minor buff it was ready to go.
The included application is not really intuitive, so that could be better designed.
I have this set up in a push pull configuration and even at maximum the airflow seems minimal as if the fans are made for pressure not airflow. I will end up replacing the fans with Noctua fans in the future.
Other Thoughts: Seeing as how this is my first time with liquid cooler I decided to go with a closed system... I really wish it was a standard saying whether or not the liquid was already included. I tried to Google but found nothing so I assumed it was to avoid breaking any seals.
Bottom line: I would still recommend this to a friend despite it's downfalls. The unit in itself is good and I have no complaints.
