Not sure if anyone has been following these coolers but they became available around a month ago. Immediately sold out everywhere, went like hot cakes. They've sat around £160 on Amazon since from third parties, but are not available from Amazon directly.

The price has now been lowered to £145.46 while they're out of stock (directly from Amazon). This is the cheapest price on the net, as far as I can see.

The all-new Kraken Series features the most advanced controls ever to be included in an all-in-one liquid cooler. Through CAM’s software interface, users can fine-tune settings to ensure an optimal performance, even in the most intense gaming sessions. Everything, including the pump, radiator, and the fans, have been redesigned to bring you the greatest experience in liquid cooling, all backed by an industry-leading 6-year warranty.; ENGINEERED FOR PERFORMANCE; Kraken Series features a new pump that is both quieter and capable of displacing more liquid than previous generations. The enhanced design achieves superior cooling with efficiency while keeping acoustics to a minimum.; MASTER YOUR CONTROL; The new Kraken enables independent tuning for the fan and pump performance. Through CAM’s intuitive designs and full software integration, the most precise and sophisticated controls can be made with ease.; LIGHT YOUR WAY; Customize the pump with the most advanced lighting effects. The Kraken Series includes numerous customizable presents and reactive modes to respond to changes in system conditions, such as temperatures and audio output. ALL-NEW RADIATOR FANS; The Aer P Series radiator fans are designed for liquid-cooling perfection. It features a chamfered intake and fluid dynamic bearing that provides silent operations, durability, and powerful cooling performance.; REINFORCED EXTENDED TUBING; Fine nylon sleeves are added to strengthen the rubber tubing. As an added protective layer, it shields your Kraken cooler tubes from potential damage during handling.

It absolutely is, hell of a lot of money. I mean it performs outstandingly and is probably the best looking on the market, but still, hell of a lot of cash...

is this the apple of water coolers

I moved to AIO coolers for aesthetic reasons a few years ago. They create a much nicer looking build. However, Skylake processors run cool and get little advantage from improved cooling performance. Unless you are into extreme overclocking, in which case you are likely to have a full water cooling solution, it seems extravagant to spend this amount.

yes.

Good price, was watching this but couldn't justify the price :(. Ended up going for the Noctua D15 as I am going for a silent build.

Same!But I will get this once mine dies. I have to ask though does anyone know if this has a USB connector directly on the plug because it makes the corsair h110i look tacky. And also hogs a USB2socket

It connects to USB 2 motherboard header, yeah.

Too expensive, I think the price is mainly for the bling which is ghastly anyway.
