Beautiful & performs well, not made for smaller builds

Pros: I’ve only had it for a couple weeks and will update over time as needed. The cooler looks amazing and will make any build look a hundred times better. Performance is also some of the best I’ve seen and it keeps my CPU very cool.

Cons: Installation was a little rough with my ITX build. The size of the CPU block makes it so the tubes’ joints are pressing against my RAM (Trident Z RGB). I plan to rotate it soon, but then the tubes may be too close to the fans blades because of their length. The radiator is also thicker than most AIO’s on the market, making it challenging to do a front intake if you have a longer graphics card. It’s a bit of a puzzle to figure out the best way to orient it.

Other Thoughts: The large CPU block, the thick radiator and the extra long tubes show that this cooler was made for mid to larger form factor builds. I wouldn’t recommend it for ITX. I hope NZXT’s next iteration of the kraken (if there will be one) is designed to be a lot more accommodating.

Great looks, good performance (when it does work) and horrible software.

Pros: -Easy to install
-Very pleasing aesthetics
-Keeps an overclocked CPU fairly cool (when it works)

Cons: -Horrible software
-Occasionally outright stopped working causing system shutdowns
-Loud pump at load
-Expensive for all the major problems encountered.

Other Thoughts: I bought this cooler about a year ago and made an account just to review this. It was a beautiful AIO that really made me want to switch from air cooling. When I first got it, I was able to install it within half an hour on an 1151 socket. Everything was working perfect for a few days once I downloaded CAM and set the RGB, pump profile and all the CAM stuff.

The first problem I had was a major one. I guess it just decided to stop working and turned off the pump and the fans and let the CPU overheat and shut the computer down. Then after that I turned my computer on to find that now CAM doesn't recognize the X52 at all. I turned it off and went to find if it was a problem, and sure enough many others were experiencing something similar with their Kraken AIO. Someone had found a solution and it worked for me.

The next problems were when a load would be placed on the CPU, the pump made an extremely loud clicking noise. At first I thought it was already dying, but it turns out, that's just the sound it makes under load. Even with headphones on I can still hear it while playing games and its really distracting.

So now the most recent of my problems with this AIO. CAM cannot find my Kraken no matter what I do. I've tried resetting my system multiple times, I've tried the old fix the worked before, I even tried getting an old version of CAM. Nothing has worked so far and I'm considering switching soon.

I love this AIO's looks, there it no doubt that it is one of the best looking on the market and anything NZXT makes will look good. I defended this AIO because it did work for me after the initial problems, even though they were huge.
But now I'm having the same problems only, again, about a year after buying it.

Be aware of this product. If the price was $100, there could be a bit of forgiveness there, but at the higher end $150? There should be no excuse. Most other brands are at prices of $100-$130 for the same 240 size with more reliable performance and less buggy software.

I'd recommend finding another AIO. There might not be any as good looking as NZXT's offerings, but I'd rather recommend something more reliable that doesn't use the CAM software.

Thanks for reading.

Cheap Mount

Pros: I wouldn't know.

Cons: I was hand tightening the screws for the LGA-1151 setup, and the part where the screws actually screw into popped loose. I was unable to pop it back into place that would allow a firm grip of the mount/bracket to be firm against my motherboard. Was an absolute pain to remove. The plastic seems to be a very cheap/lower quality plastic.

Other Thoughts: I've built dozens of computers and this is the only time I've had something like this happen. I 100% DO NOT recommended this product to anyone.

Easy Setup, Great Product

Pros: Quiet.
Keeps my i7-8700K at about 35 degrees Celsius (overclocked to 4.8GHz)
Quality of build

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Please note that the first time you turn on your computer this product may sound like water is splashing around. Once I downloaded the CAM software and it updated the firmware, the noise went away and the product worked perfectly. Looks great in the H500i.

Pump noise is not cool

Pros: Performs better than Corsair's equivalent
RGB pump is very nice
Easy install

Cons: Pump rattling noise as soon as you set it to over 70% no matter how you position the rad, no matter how you set the fan header in BIOS. For the asking price of this thing, this shouldn't happen.

Software takes FOREVER to connect to the cloud, a feature that is pretty much unnecessary

No airflow direction arrows on fans too
