NZXT Kraken X62 Liquid CPU Cooler
After removing a cover from the top of the head unit noting to connect all the wires, this is what the pump, cover, and top window look like. The center of the cover is plastic, and we can just make out the NZXT name under it. We can also see that a plastic cover clamps onto the bracket at the bottom and protects the base.
The right side of the head unit is where the coolant is taken out and put into it. NZXT uses swivel fittings which have the tubes connected to it, and in the Kraken series, the tubes are covered with a braided sleeve.
As we saw on the smaller models, the X62 still has the two connecting points on the head unit. The longer of the two is for SATA power of the pump and fan control via PWM from the motherboard. The smaller connection is for the cable which allows CAM to control the fans and pump speeds.
After removing the plastic cover that protects the copper cold plate and pre-applied time, we get a clear view of what is under the head unit There are four screws which will need to be removed if you want to use this on AMD motherboards, and we see that the TIM is evenly applied and debris free.
Since we do not test with the pre-applied TIM, we removed it to expose the cold plate. The center of the cold plate is the high point, and there are circular machining marks left in the copper from when it was shaped at the Asetek factory.
Moving to the other end of the AIO, we can see two things. The tubing is connected to the radiator via straight fittings, and the same composite plastic rings hold the tubing in place. The second thing to mention is that the length of the tubing of the Kraken coolers is longer than most, and on the X62 it is nearly sixteen inches long.
The side of the radiator is much longer than what we have in this image, but we wanted to show you the NZXT name pressed into the steel cover that runs down the long sides of this radiator.
Opposite the end of the radiator which the tubing connects to, on this header we find a sticker. The sticker shows the model of the cooler, the serial number of the cooler, that Asetek makes it, and even shows the power draw of the Kraken X62.
