#1401 - NZXT Kraken X40 & X60 CPU Water Coolers Video Review




What do you think about this video?

hammbone852: does the x60 come with extra screws to mount a second set of fans?

1524mclovin: RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!!

Jason Vercetti: radiator fans should be set as exhaust fans? really...? would be less effective to me....

Matt Jervis: Switch 810 owners need additional mounting bracket..beware and good luck getting one.I emailed over a month ago with no response.

Fekillix: Never heard of that "Kraken" story..

hokiturmix: where were you 3 months ago when i bought the H100? The whole concept seems waaaay better. Tubing, size, fans, connectivity.... .... .... seems much much usefull n so

Chris Exley: The NZXT Switch 810 requires a new top steel panel for Kraken compatibility, especially the X60. I ordered the new panel, it was here in less than a week, it installed like a breeze, and I'm ready for some X60 magic. Pre-ordered on Amazon. When will NZXT release the Kraken?

Luddmeister: i would guess x60 would perform better because it's a 280mm radiator rather than a 240mm but im not sure google nzxt kraken x60 review

3dkiller: Does it perform better then the Noctua NH-D14 ?

MrBuzzard96: I've been waiting for reviews on these, thanks. Could have shown the mounting system in more detail, though it wouldn't matter to me, it's not like I would be putting it on and taking it off much.

alexscott75: But the NH-D14 is massive, while these closed loop systems can be quite small.

Fekillix: Var nok ung når jeg ble fortalt om 'n der :)

TheKingduqc: oh and how about you say what overclock you had istead of "OVERCLOCK TEMPS" so we can do the job you didn't ourself aka compare temps on a cooler review.

Chris Exley: Read about compatibility on the NZXT Web site, under News. They replace the panel for free!

dsub1994: STOP SAYING KRUKEN! XD Joanne from newegg won't stop saying "Krayken" lol why is everyone getting this wrong? XD

StormGC10: what i mean is zed is the way to say it in Canada, and you said you don't pronounce a letter like a name/word. Even though I say Z like Zee

Verithiell: actually push/pull help. I assume you have watched Linus video about that. What he said in that video is that it doesnt matter whether you run push OR pull as the temparatures remain the same.

damaster77854: Man just a little more than a year ago. The Corsair H50 was released. I got one. Now everyone and their grandma is making the exact same closed loop setup that corsair started.

Ruck: Got it pre-ordered, can't wait! Wanted to do a custom loop, but my fiance was not happy about how much it was going to cost. I already spent almost 1500 on a brand new rig, and spending another grand on a custom loop didnt fly with her lol. So this will do, gonna look sweet in my Switch 810.

Erlend lisjevik: U SAID NORWAY!!! IM FROM NORWAY!!!!! I LOVE NORWAY!!!! ITS TO COLD IN NORWAY....

TheKingduqc: you really compared a dual 140 rad watercooling system that cost like 120$ to the basic intel one... WTF DUDE! I was expection 60x vs i100 and 40x vs i80. I'll wait for a real reviewer to get me what I need I guess.

MrGoeiegozer: No bro corsair didn't start it, asetek did, all these watercoolers are rebranded asetek's

chronofusion: the point of another consonant is to give appropriate ending or continuation of a word. Thus why it doesn't make sense to say " zed" Zed is a character off of Power Rangers kid show way back in 1994/95 ish. ( yes I had to babysit to make money until I hit 16 being hold enough to work for nearest decent job. thus to keep the kids quiet I had to suffer through freaking go go power rangers :(

SuperSayanFitness: make them thicker idiots thats easy 10mm thicker is easy better than any on the market

graphtedsoul: PCasey Kasem ?

mintchipster: Dude I would have gone Intel, but I haven't found benchmarks for either of these cooler yet.

Dilan Lochan: lol Fellow 775 User!!!

my414: x40 vs. H80i

Jamie Deyell: Can the x40 fit in a cm storm scout 2 advanced?

le2key: Other than maybe Coolit, they were the only company pushing them onto the consumer. It was made popular by Corsair.

OCGameR: X60 vs H100 or H100i please :)

Sky4Skylines: Finally!!! The review that all been waiting for. For sure in the coming weeks, many review will come out.

Carlos Rios: you ever get an answer? im thinking about getting this and mounting it on the top to blow up and out the storm 2

chronofusion: If it's texting then I can understand to a reasonable extent since many many phones ( especially cheap phones) have a character limit of less than 400 per text. Thus those people must make full use of abbreviations

graphtedsoul: cracken'

Pedro Marques: NZXT released the Kraken.

D Zero: zed is how they pronounce the letter z instead of zee

Terrify: It says the compatibility right in the beginning of the video. No it doesn't work with 775.

1524mclovin: BY THE WAY these thin radiators tend to have no retainment to protect the radiator from the mounting hardware meaning that you can damage it as you mount fans on to with the screws penetrating into the radiator.

Verithiell: I seriously dont know why people would want to buy those close loop watercooling systems. They cost alot and for that much you could get noctua nh-d14 that outperforms alot of those coolers (and lasts way longer).

thomas tucker: any idea when they will be able to buy, and has anyone ever told you that you look like alton brown lol

daviesjack12: Is this compatibal with socket 775

TrueZtyleZ7: The X60 will not fit natively and will require you to drill holes in order to fit the radiator.

Chris B: Its kra ken, not croc en, you cant even get the name right. The sea monster was named kra ken, because it was an octopus with lots of arms, NZXT looked at the cooler block body as an octopus and the hoses as its arms.

StormGC10: what about u-you or c-see-sea?

Sanny Folkesson: ahh alright

MrComputereviews: x60

Svein-Ove Westerås: no.wikipedia (dot ) org/wiki/Kraken

danix454: Some people say z's like "zed". People need to get some culture in their lives.

parada med: Not really a review, more like an unboxing. I was thinking more about temperature comparisons vs the noctua nhd14, corsair h100i, etc
