NZXT X42, X52, and X62 Liquid CPU Cooler Review Roundup

The crew at Legit Reviews have rounded up a handful of NZXT's all-in-one Kraken CPU coolers and put them to the test today.

NZXT’s all-new Kraken coolers are sealed systems based on Asetek hardware and are the third generation of coolers that Asetek provided to NZXT.  As previously mentioned, the X42 and X62 are updated versions of the X41 and X61, while the X52 is new to the line-up.  The X42 is a 140mm single-fan cooler, the X52 is a 240mm dual-fan cooler, and the X62 is a 280mm dual-fan cooler.  Obviously as we increase in size, we should find that the cooler can handle the load that much better.  NZXT bringing a 240mm cooler to this line-up will help fit the crowd that doesn’t have massive cases.
