and I really enjoy some of the lighting effects of this AIO
April 4, 2018
I have been using this cooler only for a couple days now, and I really enjoy some of the lighting effects of this AIO, and the rad does an excellent job of keeping my i5 2500k in the high 20's low 30's with a 3.7ghz overclock. Under load the temps never reach above 45 degrees and im pretty pleased with its performance. Installation was rather simple, and easy to do. Top rad mount was also very simple and easy to do. Overall a great introduction to water cooling for newcomers like myself.
However, I find the Cam Software that NZXT uses leaves a lot to be desired. I currently have trouble changing colours and i cant slow down or speed up the lights. Because the software is very buggy, and in fact, very disappointing, I took 1 star off. Could it be a deal breaker for some? I believe so absolutely, so keep in mind the buggy software and dont purchase if it worries you.
Overall, I am pretty pleased, Cam is a let down, but the amazing aesthetic of this cooler is pretty hard to beat. The cooling performance is very good in my opinion and really beats the old corsair air cooler i was using for the longest time.
Great product, terrible software.
EDIT: Have been using it for a while with my new PC, keeps my I7 at 28 degrees idle, and max 70 under very heavy load. Am still very pleased with the aesthetic and cooling performance of this cooler.
