Product information - KRAKEN X62 V2 Complete AiO Water Cooling - 280mmThe NZXT Kraken X62 V2 is a modern All-in-One water cooler which, when compared to its predecessor the X61, comes with several notable improvements. In addition to a new design for the fans, pump and radiator, the X62 V2 offers higher static pressure, lower noise and reinforced hoses for imprved durability. The pump itself is kitted out with a small infinity mirror and offers an array of varied lighting options which, in addition to the pump settings, can be controlled via the advanced CAM software directly from the desktop. The NZXT puts store by the premium quality of their products, and for that reason they have put an exceptionally long manufacturer's guarantee of six years on this All-in-One cooler.

- Two 140 mm fans (Aer P140) included
- Stylish LED lighting on the pump
- Monitoring and control options available via the CAM software
- High compatibility with AMD and Intel processors

Pump, Fan & Cooling PerformanceSimilar to its predecessor, the NZXT Kraken X62 V2 employs a slightly larger 280 mm aluminium dual-radiator. The cooling performance and the accompanying noise is not only regulated by the span speed of the bundled 140 mm fans, instead it is also controlled by the speed of the pump which can range between 1.000 and 2.800 RPM. As expected the pump is integrated into the rear of the CPU's heatsink which maintains contact with the AMD or Intel processor using a copper baseplate.
The role of cooling the radiator falls to two of NZXT's modern Aer-P 140 mm fans. Thanks to the angled air inlets and outlets as well as the "Winglet"-style fan blades, air resistance is markedly reduced and static pressure increased. The result is PWM fans that offer excellent cooling performance of up to 166,79 m³/h. Thanks to the copper dynamic fluid bearings the Aer-P fans even enjoy an extended service life of over six years. Furthermore they also run smoothly and evenly, thereby noticeably reducing the noise produced when in operation.
The pump is connected to the motherboard via USB, while the fans are connected directly to the pump as usual.
Infinity Mirror, LED Lighting & CAM SoftwareWhen it comes to design, NZXT has employed some fantastic creativity to the the constructuion of this AiO. The rear of the water block comes with stylish LED lighting with an infinity mirror that creates a fanastic visual effect. This lighting makes it possible to illuminate the NZXT logo as well as the circular LED strips according to the user's preferences in a massive array of colours and effects - something that adds a great deal to the aesthetic of any motherboard.
NZXT's CAM software even allows users the option of adjusting the pump and fan performance by hand. This is ideal for users wishing to further customise the balance between cooling and noise or pump and fan speeds, instead of relying on the out-of-the-box settings for the KRAKEN X62 V2. This software also allows you to view the core temperature as well as the water temperature while also offering the option to switch between different profils.
Compatibility & Manufacturer's GuaranteeAnyone still unsure of the advantages to buying the NZXT Kraken X62 V2 should read on, as the X62 V2 is not only an effective and relatively quiet cooler, it is also compatible with all modern sockets from AMD and Intel while being very simple to install. The V2 range also offers compatibility with AM4- and TR4. It should also be noted that this AiO does not require maintenance and that the cooler is capable of fitting into certain smaller cases where tower coolers struggle to fit.
The Kraken X62 is pre-filled and delivered with pre-applied thermal paste on the CPU contact area. Thanks to the 40 cm long hoses the radiator is also flexible in terms of where exactly it can be positioned in relation to the requisite dual 140 mm fan slots. This high-end AiO also comes with an exceptional six year manufacturer's guarantee, which is a ringing endorsement of the faith NZXT places in the principle of All-in-One water cooling.
