By far the coolest looking cooler.

I love how the CPU looks, which is why I bought it, but another reason this cooler stands out is; The new Aer fans are so much quieter then previous fans.

It gets a bit loud, so I would recommend adjusting the curves in the CAM program. That is my only complaint. Other than that it is a very nice looking aio liquid cooler & it keeps my cpu from getting too hot. On a sidenote if you are interested in getting one of these kraken series coolers you will need sata power, cpu fan header, and usb 2.0 header for it. On the power cable it has 4 fan headers for the case fans which was well appreciated.

Pricey but super sweet looking, highly customizable unit and it is operating quiet. I don't like all the non-sleeved cables running to the cpu block, the non-copper radiator and the crazy cam software (which is running a bit better now).

The mirror leds are gorgeous! and keeps the CPU very cool : l idle ~20-30° degree ,under load can keep it under ~60-70° so far with OC

This cooler happened to just come out as I was looking for an AIO, and there were a few reasons as to why I chose this over my other option, the Corsair h110i. First off, look how sexy that infinity mirror is, and the led functionality is incredible. While looking into reviews, I also noticed that the Kraken was much quieter than that of the h110i, something to take note if you are in the market for a cooler. The only thing that is a minor concern is the CAM software that is used to control the AIO. Sometimes I have to reinstall the software to get it to work properly, but because it is so new, it should only take a few updates which should come soon to fix it overall. This is as of Jan. 31st btw.

Pros: - easy to install - very sleek design - mirror effect - software controlled - sexy

Cons: - quality control, you have to be lucky to get a working/non crooked one

Keeps my CPU nice and cool even under load. My only issue with it is that the cooling block is rather large and blocks the first RAM slot on my motherboard. Not an issue for me right now, but it could be if you want to use all four slots in your build.

Also the infinity mirror lighting effect is tight.
