Hello people,

Recently i have upgraded my Corsair H100 to a NZXT Kraken X60 in push pull config.

The cooler does fine except, im not able to control it.

I want to run 4.8Ghz like i have always done but it just keeps BSOD 101 on me.

The problem is, The software (NZXT Kraken control) cannot be installed on my Windows 8 x64. I have tried everything, admin mode, and other windows compability modes, but the installation keeps failing.

This way i am not abled to control the cooler, as the fans never ramp up.

The pump has to be connected to a internal USB, when i pull it out, the fans go to 100%

Does anyone know what i can do?

Or else i just have to install Win7 and reinstall everything.

I think the software requires .NET or something, can't remember exactly, to run - so maybe that's why it won't install. I was able to install it on my Win 8 x64 system, so it is possible. I think there's just some prerequisite you are missing. You are using the 1.1 version of the software?

Can the fans be connected to the motherboard, or are they wired directly to the coolinghead?

I have tried to install .NET 3.5 manually but the installer says im already up to date also with windows update, im up to date.

I have tried 1.1 from the CD and the download from NZXT's site.

I have them connected to the wire with 4 PWM connectors coming from the pump. And i'd rather use the motherboard PWM's for my casefans as i have a 900D full packed with fans.
