Sell me: Dark Rock Pro 3 or Kraken X62

Doing a new build and am getting a Phanteks Enthoo ATX case (I love NZXT cases but I have had a Phantom for about 5 years and don't see enough difference in their current designs, so switching it up.)

I will be waiting for Kaby Lake and Z270 so will have some time, but performance plus aesthetics, I have narrowed it down to the DRP3 or X62. Obviously two very different solutions given air/AIO, but looking for feedback on people's preferences or experience.

Price isn't really a deciding factor, or my mind would be made up for me. :)

Do I have to worry about AIO units leaking at all? Noise wise with the progressive fan I think the X62 will be acceptable (tho obviously not as quiet as the DRP3).

Anyway, love to hear thoughts, opinions, ideas, votes...

Thanks all!

Not at all.

It depends on what the rest of the build is going to look like, personally I would get the DRP3.

Going to use a Phanteks Evolve ATX case. Nice window, part of me is worried about the DRP3 taking up so much viewing room. Though if something is going to do that, I think that cooler looks balling.

I would get the X62 then.
