It's temporarily out of stock at Amazon, but still available to order for £119.46 and will be delivered once it's back in stock.

I'd been waiting for the X52 to drop back down to £115 since I missed out on the last deal on here, but have also been keeping an eye on the X62 just in case a similar deal came up. I think this might be the cheapest the Kraken X62 has been so far?

Good Spot OP.....Cheers...But why is this going cold.... Heated..
Been waiting for a reduction on this, I'll bite at this price Have some heat.
Hot, uninformed people made this cold
Better to go with Corsair imo. Simply put their warranty is next to none and if their product breaks anything in your computer due to a leak (extremely rare, but always possible) they will replace any broken parts.

Thanks!

It's going cold because it's still expensive for a water cooler; air coolers like Noctuas are much cheaper and perform just as well, and/or people are buying an expensive cooler just because it looks nice in their case. I think that's all the usual reasons.

It's a bit like posting a Beats deal or an iPad or iPhone deal: it's going to get its share of cold votes, but it might still help the ones who are actually looking for the Kraken X62 for a decent price.
I paid £150 a few days ago.. good price if you are prepared to wait! Excellent cooler and looks really cool

Looks nice, but in my experience these are louder than air coolers, and have more parts to go wrong.

Had h80, h100 and td02 and on all of them, I could hear the pump (and it's associated vibrations) over the rest of my case - so now after a bit of a fad, I'm back to a giant Noctua lump of metal, silent, less than half the price, and very efficient.
great price just need to check compatibility with case I'm ordering

Good information.
Will stick with Corsair.

I have a H110 which was purchased 3 years ago. I thought the pump had become louder than usual. Corsair has a 5yr warranty on AIO's and accepted it no questions. Had a brand new replacement within a week or so. It looked like they did a drop shipment directly from Scan

​It's been a little while since I read the Corsair forums but there are several threads from disgruntled AIO owners who's system had leaked and caused a lot of damage in doing so. Their claims procedure isn't always as responsive as some would like, and not always guaranteed to reach the decision you would want.
When these things leak they can destroy GPU's and motherboards etc...
I decided that an air cooler, as big as they are, was the best all round option. Comparatively there is little to go wrong and they seem more effective.

bargain. got mine last month for £130. looks good and its quiet. only downside is it doesnt come with the am4 bracket but you can get one for free from NZXT but takes a few weeks to arrive

I spoke to Corsair recently. If it is a fault of their product, they will replace anything that is broken, they specifically said this has not changed.

It's about contacting the reddit corsair employees mainly, they're responsive and non-retarded (unlike pretty much every company except Amazon, all has crap customer service).

It's a shame this is getting so many cold votes though. The smaller X52 went hot when it was at its lowest price of £114.99. This is the next model up for £5 more, and also the cheapest it's been so far.
This is a hot deal, the x62 is more expensive than corsair but great reviews, quiet and just looks bling with the LED ring. People pay more for the bling

They do give that impression of being one of the more responsive manufacturers, in terms of appreciating the issues a leaking system can cause. But the posts and threads I was referring to mentioned the time delays, lack of communication and very poor compensation when they have acknowledged a claim, considering the value of some of the GPU's damaged beyond repairs.

As I mentioned they might be the exception but with an Air Cooler you have none of that potential.

After spending many hours reading and deliberation about a AIO cooler I ended up with a Cryorig R1 Ultimate air cooler. Very quite and very efficient.

They've not shown that toward me and it's better than the other companies that don't do it at all.
Anyone looking at one of these. Consider checking pricespy.co.uk for the price of the "Arctic Freezer 240mm".
All these are made by the same company (Asetek) using the same parts, to the same standard, with the same liquids, same... everything basically. They are then branded and have whatever "fluff" features the new marque wants added (like lights, fan controllers, etc).
The Arctic Freezers actually perform the best of these out of the box due to double the number of fans (their version of the "fluff") so where there is space to set these up in push-pull, the best price to performance ratio by a hell of a long way comes from the Arctic branded AIO's.
If tacky lighting and similar cosmetics are worth paying around 1.5x the price for... (£70 for a 240mm AF 240mm).
