This review is from: NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM
Pros: Looks really great, keeps my 3570k at 70C or less at 4.4GHz. during an 8 hour stress test. Somewhat easy installation.
Cons: When first installed and fired up, I could hear a fan rattle. I tested one fan at a time and it only does it when both are running. However this was before the Kraken software was installed and they were running at 100%. Now it only does it for a split second when I first fire up my machine. Not sure what's causing it, both fans and radiator are tightly secured.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Mainly giving this 3 eggs for looks and its size. Plenty of room/airflow and looks really great with custom light wheel. Cable management is fairly good if you take the time to do it. I like the I/O panel light in the rear, very helpful in finding your ports.
Cons: When I received mine the dust filter in the front of the case had come off its bracket and was freely rattling around, I had to tip the case upside down and take the front off to get at it. The side panels are somewhat difficult to take off compared to other cases I've owned, if you're not careful you could scratch the case removing them. Also, not sure if this is supposed to be like this or not, but the front door on mine doesn't seem to close all the way. The side where you open it is not flush with the rest of the front, so the line/curvature of the front panel does not line up. Bothers me a little but not enough to send the whole thing back, especially since it's already together and looking good.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy with the case, regardless of my review and complaints, as most of the flaws are minor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice, fast chip. Still early but zero problems as of yet. Overclocked to 4.4GHz without breaking a sweat. Stress tested it for 8 hours at 4.4 with a max registered temp of 70C. Got it cooled with an NZXT Kraken X60.
Other Thoughts: If you are thinking about getting this chip, do it! Great price now with the holidays.READ FULL REVIEW
