NZXT Kraken X60 AIO CPU Cooler
The head unit on the Kraken X60 is round, and on the top plastic cover offers a circle and the NZXT name on it that can later be illuminated.
From the side of the head unit, there are three black braided leads that come out of the inside of the X60 right next to the pair of plastic swivel fittings that the hose attaches to.
On the other end of those three braided leads you will find these connections. One lead had four 4-pin male fan clips with a SATA power lead piggy backed into it for additional power. You also have the 3-pin fan connection lying on top of the UBS connection that must be made for software control.
As do all Asetek coolers, the X60 also ships with a plastic protector on the base that locks over the tabs on the edge of the head unit for transit. They seem to be doing their job as the paste isn't disturbed or full of debris.
Although I can't figure out why they like a round application of paste, it is large enough to cover the IHS of any processor used today. For our testing this will be replaced with MX-2, so may as well get it out of the way.
The copper plate the removes the heat from the processor is milled in a circular fashion, and is in no way level or flat. The center of these do sit higher than the rest of the copper and is a very convex shape.
