NZXT Kraken X60 Vs Corsair H100i Push/Pull

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Was wondering how would a Corsair H100i (240mm Rad) in push/pull with something like GT AP-15 fans running at full speed compare against a NZXT Kraken X60 (280mm Rad) with there default fans just in pull on the extreme settings?

I would take the Corsair H100i over the NZXT Kraken, the Corsair H100i has better case compatibility, Corsair link and a wider range of pressure optimised fans. The waterblock/pump on the new H100i looks very sexy as well and can be customised to whatever colour you want.

Reviews I found showed the x60 outperformed most all other closed loop coolers at their respective settings. When compared to the h100i the x60 outperformed it, but not by much (maybe a 15% increase).

like hammer said, the h100i has better case fitting capabilities. What case do you have? NZXT has a case pdf here: http://www.nzxt.com/Download/Kraken%20Case%20Compatibility%201.1.pdf

I personally have the h80i right now. When I took it out of the box new one of the plugs for the fan headers had been pushed inside the pump housing. Not a huge deal but it still worked. I found the fans on the h80i to be much louder than I expected as well so I will be returning the h80i. I ordered the x60 after seeing many reviews (was going for the h110). My case is the thor v2 which has tons of room for even a push pull config.

personally I would go with h100i for their warranty and software
but if you can grab the new swiftech h220, it would be even better since it has the possibility of custom loop if in the future you decided to go custom

I saw his video. Good stuff. I still choose the x60 just because for now I won't be getting into any custom water loops (maybe eventually). I choose it also because it has the software and lights on the pump where the h110 is similar to the h60 in that it doesn't include the software or LED on the pump.

I built 4 systems (2 3570K's and 2 3770K's) using the Kraken x60 and I am duly impressed by the ability to cool those CPU's to 4.7GHz with no problem and still remain VERY quiet.
