About this deal
If you notice any distortions in these colors, this can indicate that a particular channel is failing on the Kraken and would require the cooler to be replaced. For example, a failing Blue channel will cause White to appear as Yellow while a failing Green channel will cause White to appear as Magenta. I've confirmed my Kraken is either failing or defective, what do I do next? In case you haven’t installed an all-in-one cooler before, it can seem daunting, but an option like that Kraken makes it fairly simple on either side of the CPU aisle.
In other words, regardless of platform, the Kraken kept its cools. While not as frosty as some of its competition while idling, it handled high temperatures at bay while under load with consistency, not allowing any spikes. If after completing the above steps your Kraken is either failing, defective, or you require further assistance then please reach out to our Customer Supportteam for further assistance. Please be sure to have the following information on hand, as this will be needed in the event that a Replacement Part or RMA(Return Merchandise Authorization) is necessary.The Kraken Z-3 series may not be for every builder. While the CPU cooler is both aesthetically stunning and does its job very well, the same is true for the X-3 Series. So, you have to ask yourself if you really need animated gifs on your CPU? Probably not. Is the thermal stability of your machine an ever-present anxiety for you that requires active monitoring? Probably not. CAM’s elegant, user-friendly software makes you the master of your PC. With simple-to-use, intuitive controls, you can manage your Kraken’s performance and appearance with ease.
That isn’t a criticism; the Kraken Z-3 series is one of the most beautiful CPU coolers we have seen to date. The active thermal monitoring on the pump’s LCD is a nice feature and the AER 2 fans provide multi-zone RGB with limited cabling. You are going to pay enthusiast prices for these features, but here are a few things to consider. Most PCs running Windows 10 or 11 will likely be the 64-bit version of Windows. If you are unsure as to the version installed on your PC, you can press Windows+R to bring up the Runwindow and run msinfo32. This will be listed as the System Type. As we mentioned before, we did want to test out the Kraken Z63 in NZXT’s own environment. As it turned out, I happened to be collecting some parts to throw together an Intel Core i5 10600K-based system. And what we saw was a remarkably similar story. The Kraken Z63 held the CPU at just under 60C while under load and kept the CPU at around 40C (18C over ambient) immediately following.Source: Rich Edmonds / Windows Central (Image credit: Source: Rich Edmonds / Windows Central) Who it's for Thermaltake: Water 3.0 Riing RGB 360, 280, 240, Red 280, 140 - Water 3.0 Ultimate - Extreme S, Extreme, Pro, Performer - Water 2.0 Extreme, Pro, Performer
