About this deal

The next panel we come to is purple, and begins with specifications, shows socket support, covers the warranty, and even delivers performance results. Initially, we see that the radiator on this unit is 175mm long, it is 143mm wide, and is 30mm thick, as this is a 280mm liquid cooler. The pair of 140mm fans covers all of the fin area, and the long screws and washers compress the rubber inserts in the fan holes and eliminate any source of vibration. My final conclusion is that the Kraken X62 is stylish, easy to install, easy to maintain, and will get the job done under a normal, or moderate overclocking situation. Here we can see a full list of features repeated in eleven languages in total, and near the bottom are some barcodes and the serial number of the unit.

It is also how the LEDs are controlled, where the choice is to use one of the thirteen modes of operation or set them to a static color of your choosing. By effectively removing excess heat from the CPU, it helps to maintain stable and consistent performance, contributing to the longevity of the processor. In addition, this high-quality compact water cooling system is provided with a manufacturing guarantee of six years, which shows how the principle of all-in-one water cooling works. The mounting hardware is like what any other Asetek cooler comes with and has been proven to be a great system of mounting for about three or four generations now. At this point, we do have the overclock applied, but PWM is still sending signals to control speeds of the fans and pump.

The X62 Kraken comes fitted with two Aer P140 PWM fans, which are designed for liquid-cooling perfection. The lower section allows you to select a preset mode of lighting, or you can choose to use them in a static color using the color options or RGB codes on the right. I find it difficult to respond, because you're not understanding why people take noise level into consideration. The last test that I ran was to move the entire system out of the P90 case and put it in a traditional case that has strong air flow.

I then filled the lines / radiator with white vinegar and shook it around, emptied it, and repeated a few more times. After removing a cover from the top of the head unit noting to connect all the wires, this is what the pump, cover, and top window look like. However, once we moved to performance mode, the Kraken jumps ten spots, making it the second-best cooler we have tested on this 6700K. Even though the 280mm radiator is about the extent of what can be fit at the top of the D-Frame, the length of the tubing does not limit us from doing so.

You can also change it to reflect the CPU temperature, as well as opting for FPS on screen, and customize the color scale to whatever you want. No matter what angle we take, no matter how much we try to find fault with the Kraken X62, we are coming up blank as to anything bad to say about it. Both fans are re-wired on one connector and are controlled from a RPM/PWM controller that resides in the cooling block.
