post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Release date is end of June.
I was going to get the X60 but it looks like I'm going to hold out for this one instead.

No one wants to discuss this?

It's an improvement over the X60, but it's not as interesting as the Fractal Design Kelvin series, which are expandable with G1/4 threads and Alphacool radiators. As far as AIO coolers go, sealed loops are becoming a thing of the past, just nowhere near as versatile as an expandable loop, as first introduced by the Swiftech H220. Asetek will need to follow up with the rest of the competition, or rely on lawsuits for market share.

I bought an x60 after reading all the good reviews, and it ended up tossing it because I could never get the software to work correctly. Their software conflicts with the Corsair Link software on my AX860i power supply. So I had no control of the illumination or fan speeds on the x60.

NZXT customer support was no help at all. Even after removing the Corsair Link software I could never get the x60 software to work. That was last November, I just checked their site, and there has been no update on the software. My next step was to reinstall windows and all my software, since everything else worked great on this new build I decided to just buy a Corsair H110.

The Corsair H110 is wired so you can just plug the fan connector onto your mother board or a fan controller. The x60 uses a usb interface requiring software that works.

The X61 and X41 are controlled with their new CAM software which is really nice and easy to use.

I was about to jump the gun and get a X60 this week. Think I'll keep waiting for the X61 and the Fractal stuff first.
