NZXT Kraken X52 Liquid CPU Cooler Review (Page 2)

The front of the box for the Kraken X52 from NZXT put the name of the cooler, and that it is a 240mm liquid cooler right at the top. The rest of the space is used to show off the fans, radiator, tubing, and the LED backlit head unit found inside of this box.


Spinning to the next panel, we see it is purple. The name of the cooler starts things off, and below it is the specifications, compatibility, and the performance references with a size comparison and thermal results.


The large image shows the Kraken X52 inside of an NZXT chassis. There is a bit of why you should get this cooler, and three features shown under that statement. To the right is a nod to the CAM software, which in our opinion is the best out there at this time.


The last of the panels returns to purple and is used to display seven key features found with the Kraken CPU coolers. This is repeated in ten other languages, and the white section delivers the serial number and EAN and UPC barcodes.


The inner packaging is made from recycled cardboard, and it has a section for each of the components shipped inside of it. The head unit and tubing wrap around the back and are wrapped in a plastic bag. The radiator and both fans are put inside of a cardboard sleeve, and the hardware and wiring can be found in front of the fans, and down the right side. Sufficient packaging, as it allowed the Kraken X52 to be in spectacular condition to be looked at in depth.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
