If NZXT keeps good quality control, then the Kraken don't need that long of warranty. Also, I upgrade every 2-3 years, so yea.

So much for the late November release date for the Krakens. Not a hint of from NZXT. I may say screw it and buy a Water 2.0 Extreme.

I was told late November and not a peep about from NZXT since their Oct. 30 announcement about the Krakens. I am considering the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme.

Thermaltake's Water 2.0 Extreme control software looks identical to the H20 920 ChillControl.
The pump and mounting plates look identical, but looks can be decieving.
I believe this unit outperforms the 920.
Typical rad (H100) is 27mm thick. Core is 20mm thick?
TT Water2.0 Extreme is 50% thicker.
H20 920 is double thick.
H100 & Water2.0 are 240mm (2x 120mm), while the 920 is only 120mm.
SO.. The Water2.0 is 50% larger than the 920.
I wonder what the FPI (fins per inch) is for both? I bet they are close.

Core Temp 1.0 RC4 data with full Folding At Home 100% load, 22c ambient:

System 1:
i7 2600k, 4 core, 3.4GHz stock. 95 watts stock,
OC to 4.4 GHz, 91 watts estimated???, VID 1.366
H2O 920: i7 Core Temp ~ 62c

System 2:
i7 3930k, 6 core, 3.2GHz stock, 130 watts stock,
OC to 4.2 GHz, 156 watts estimated, VID 1.346
Water 2.0 Extreme: i7 Core Temp ~ 62c

The Water 2.0 Extreme is much quieter than the H20 920.
I would not use anything less for a Sandy Bridge - E.
If it fits, use it instead of the H20 920 or similar.

BTW: I have the Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro on order to do "THE MOD" to my new EVGA GTX670.
It looks a lot like the H20 920, with similar RAD size. BUT.. NO USB control, no control software.
I bet the fans are better, and the whole thing will be quieter.

Not sure about the foo on the other coolers but I'm pretty sure the x40 and x60 will have 22fpi

No, it's not Vaporware. We just decided to take some extra time on getting things ready. Retell has been out at the MFG making tweaks to the units to ensure that we have a pretty nice piece of kit.

thanks for the info.

unfortunately i am not able to fit a larger size rad in my case so if anything the kraken x40 is probably the biggest i would be able to do and mount it in the top of my case since i have 140mm fan mounts there. the h100 will not easily fit in a corsair 300R which is why im looking at the smaller water coolers biggrin.gif
