We're talking about the space between the inner screw hole of one of the fans to the other inner screw hole of the opposite fan.

I'm wondering this too, Also any good LED fans I could get would be a plus as well.
I'm looking for 2 LED and 2 non-LED 140mm fans.

Personally, I'd go for Scythe, Noctua, Be Quiet, or Gelid. I've had good luck and performance with all of those fans.
post #138 of 167
So I've been using this liquid cooler and I must say, its awesome!
I do have a couple of questions...

1) I connected the pump to the CPU fan connector on the mobo so that it automatically adjusts the speeds by itself depending on what I'm doing, now 90% of the time, my CPU is marked at 15-22 (on my X79 FTW) when I check the NZXT control panel the Fan speed is at 0 and the pump at 3000-3100, all 4 of my CPU cores are ranging from 27-31 c, so what I'm wondering is this a normal behavior?

2) If the above is normal, I'm planning on purchasing 2 extra fans to use push/pull configuration, I'm currently using the fans that came with the X60 and the fans I'm planning on getting are the quiet edition of Corsair (so since 90% of the time my fans are at the bear minimum speed I'm getting these for looks other than performance) When the fans are set to for example 50%, would it be 50% of the 2000rpm fans or 50% of the capability of the connected fan? How will NZXT control panel display fan speeds if 2 fans can go up to 2000 rpm and the other 2 only to 1350 (or whatever it was)?

Are you using 3 pin fans on your Kraken unit? 4 Pin PWM fans will show off all stats, 3 Pins should show RPM, and 2 pin fans wouldn't show either as they are just powered with no feedback wire.

At the moment I'm only using the default fans that come with the Kraken X60 which are 4 pins if I remember correctly....
