NZXT Kraken X40 Continued
What I do like about these kits is the use of 15 inches of tubing to give users the extra bit of room that the other kits don't offer. The three pin fan connection is eight inches long, the pair of 4-pin fan connections are nine inches long, and the USB cable is 22 inches long to easily get to the USB ports on your motherboard.
As the tubing reaches the radiator, again there is a pressed sleeve used to keep the tubing on, but this time they are attached to aluminium barb on the radiator.
This radiator is 138.4mm wide and stands 172.5mm tall. That means this radiator may be a little large for the rear panel even if there are 140mm fan holes there, but won't cause much issue if installed at the top or anywhere else in the chassis for that matter.
From top mounting holes to bottom mounting holes, this radiator stands 27mm tall in this image. While that is for the entire frame, the radiator is only 20mm thick.
Choosing a random spot in the radiator to measure, with the tight fins behind the tape measure, you can count the individual fins. This is where I got the figure of 24 FPI count for this review.
Grabbing the fan from the box, you can see once it is installed, it almost doubles the thickness of this system. With one fan you are dealing with 52mm of thickness now, and if you want to do a push/pull setup, you need to consider that the radiator sandwich will then be 77mm thick.
I just wanted to get the head unit and the radiator in the same image, so here it is. Take it all in for a moment and get ready to take a look at all the hardware you need to mount to this cooler.
