Have this myself and can rate it highly. Best price barring one spike back in May.

OOS currently, but you can order it from Amazon, £139-150 elsewhere. Not a huge saving, but worth an order if you're looking for it.

Alternatively there are some cheap (£83) Corsair AIO's 240-280 in Warehouse at the moment that are also worth a look.

Kraken deal!
Sorry...

Surely it's a good thing this deal has gone so cold?

Good price, I paid £150.

Beware that the CAM software required for this is rubbish and will often not detect the Kraken or Hue+ at all. When it works its great, but I find it too unreliable to recommend.

When you say CUE, I presume you mean CAM? I've not had this happen at all on my Ryzen build, software has been fine for me.

Be aware, you need to request an AM4 bracket from NZXT if that's your requirement.

My Coolermaster Nepton 240m does a solid job and it comes in under 100 atm so worth a consideration as well

What is it?

Updated title to reflect the answer

Processor cooler

+1 for the cooler, -1 for the manufacturer.

On my x61 I had a noisy fan and they asked me to pay $13 to deliver 2 'free' bulky fans in a box shipped from USA.

The warranty operates in USA again, they do not have any Europe support.

An all in one (fans, radiator , pump) water cooler for your CPU , I have the Corsair h100i and although it's good the software for it is absolutely terrible , keeps my cpu nice and cool though , heard good things about these

As above, CAM is terrible. For my Grid+ I gave up completely and use 3rd party software that does exactly what I want and uses a fraction of the resources.
£130 seems very steep for an AIO, let alone a good cooler.
I also personally wouldn't let an AIO anywhere near my PC but that is beside the point.

For years it was the done thing to come into AMD Bulldozer threads and joke about need your own power plant etc. So in that spirit:
Can it keep an Intel Skylake-X i9-7900K cool at stock? Or when overclocked?

No mate, nor 7740K. For that you'll need to place your entire PC in a chest freezer, after delidding of course.

Corsair customer service is EXCELLENT and the software is way more stable. I'm using a lot of Corsair components and they all work flawless on Windows 10.

Deepcool CAPTAIN 240 White Liquid CPU Cooler is a work of art and pulses. Oh its cheaper as well

Had this since release, never had a problem with CAM at all. Not with my Hue+, not with my Kraken. Good as gold.

Good luck with any warranty claims.

tomshardware.co.uk/ans…tml

I'd only ever recommend NZXT or Corsair on the basis they (case by case) will pay out for hardware damage resulting from their product failure.

In the case of this product that's 6 years.

I still wouldn't trust water in my machine without some recourse but YMMV.

Hopefully you never need it

Im surprised they asked you to pay. I complained about a noisy fan on my NZXT S3440 case, and they sent me two replacements free of charge from the US.

Hey there!

Not sure if you got my last reply,

The customs charge I can't really give you an estimate since that is done through your local delivery service.

However for the shipping cost it will be $12.99 USD.

I will send you two fans just in case the issue occurs again.

- so he was expecting that I will pat the Custom as well! Not to say they are really taking their time to answer any e-mails!!

I'd complain to them asking why you have to pay for delivery to replace a faulty parts. I was worried about custom charges too, but I didn't have to pay anything. Was delivered in a week.

Well, that was almost 1 year ago and I agreed, what is the point complaining now... At least this will not happen next time, if there will be one. I did not pay anything for the Custom either, the fan costs are too low for that.
