This review is from: NZXT Kraken X41 RL-KRX41-01 140mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution
Pros: Replaced an Enermax 120mm CLC. Has a good quality feel, the sleeved cables look great and the length will reach pretty much anywhere in a mid-tower case. Paired with AMD 8350 temps at idle 15c and maxed out gaming 40c. Running the cam software and its on silent. Took 10 minutes to install and the led is very nice.
Cons: For now cant think of any but I will update post in a few months.
Other Thoughts: This thing is big but I knew that. I have the NZXT H440 Razer case which supports a 140mm rad. I put in the back of the case and it just fit. It was snug against the back i/o panel. The only real complaint I have is the fan is white. NZXT please make one that is all black.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None on these.
Cons: Bought 3 of these. While installing a mount on each fan tore out. The plastic insert thats in the rubber corners just tears right out. Leaving the screw where it will spin and not tighten. Even worse you have to just tear it out remove it from the case. I have the AF 140 and had no issue.
Other Thoughts: Been a customer for a while. Hopefully they will replace or refund. Rather have the refund for now. Not sure I will buy these again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Switched back to AMD after years of Intel chips. I was worried at first but very please now. Didnt even bother with the stock cooler instead put on a Cooler Master T4 single fan on Asus Crosshair Formula Z 990FX mobo. It ran about 38C at idle and about 10 degrees hotter gaming. Popped on another fan and used Asus OC utility and its sitting at 4.2ghz for now. Idles at 33C and after hours of gaming still hasnt passed 45C. Ran multiple BurnIn tests for processor max temp and it wont pass 51C. I can probably push a little higher before I need a liquid cooler. Im pretty sure with the right set up this could easily compete with the 8350. Value ratio was the deciding factor on buying this CPU.
Cons: Power hungry at 124W. AMD needs to dial it down.READ FULL REVIEW
