  • 1Description

The Kraken X42 All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooler is a closed-loop liquid cooling solution with RGB lighting and effects for both Intel and AMD CPUs. This version of the Kraken X42 is compatible with AM4 sockets by including a bracket. Its all-in-one design eliminates the need for complicated installations, leak testing, and coolant refilling. Simply install the proper mounting hardware for your CPU and attach the pump. After, mount the radiator to a location of your choice. Depending on your desired airflow within the chassis, you can install it as an intake or an exhaust unit, and even adjust the speed to your needs. If you have extra clearance within the case, you can add an additional fan for a push/pull setup to lower temperatures even more. Download the CAM software to monitor your PC as well as to adjust lighting and fan options.

Large 140mm radiator provides additional surface area for efficient cooling
Quiet, high-performance variable speed pump in a closed-loop system
Micro-fin copper plate comes in direct contact with the CPU for efficient heat transfer
Customize the pump's color and lighting effects with CAM (PC monitoring software)
Aer P series radiator fans deliver high static pressure at variable speeds for a balance between noise and performance
Fine nylon sleeves over the rubber tubing provide an additional protective layer, shielding the tubes from damage
Package of brackets included for compatibility with Intel and AMD sockets, including the AM4

    NZXT RL-KRX42-02 reviews

    Kraken X42 All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooler with AM4 Bracket is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good performance and perfect if RAZER themed We all need a CPU cooler right. It doesn't have to be a liquid cooler as the majority of the ambient fin types are up to most tasks. Installing this liquid CPU cooler is probably overkill for my build but it looks so sweet! PROS: ease of install and now includes the AMD bracket (although I didn't need it) RGB Infinity effects and full control of pump and fan speeds via the CAM software. The hoses had plenty of length for most any install and flexible enough to not kink or bind. CONS: unclear direct of fan as there is no arrow, not a big deal but it does take to install, check and change if necessary. CAM software only, since this cooler is a RAZER design shouldn't the Synapse software include this CPU cooler? Cost - one of the highest priced all in one liquid CPU coolers on the market. OVERALL: recommended if you are doing a RAZER RGB build. There are other choices that offer RGB, even with non liquid coolers.
