New king of AIO water-coolers?

I have tested several coolers in the past couple of months: three from TT (Performer, Pro, Extreme), four from Corsair (H55, H60 r2, H100i, and 80i which isnt posted yet) two from Enermax (240, 120 not posted), one from CM (Seidon 120m not posted yet), NZXT Kraken (X60, X40 not posted yet).

Which one you think is the best overall performer? And by how much?

In the works. But it will be small.

They all look very similar LOL X__X
Aren't they from Asetek and was just rebranded?
I would guess it would be ThermalTake's Extreme! TT have some cheap but very powerful fans. Their thunderblade in particular is loud but powerful... using it for my H50. :D

Will be posting soon but the NZXT Kraken line is a really beast compared to the others AIOs.

Really! Hmmmmm that's interesting! :D
I was a NZXT fan. Their cases in particular which looks sleek and modern. But the cleaning part of their cases is what I hate.
The kraken looks similar to antec kuhler. I like the design overall. It would be interesting if it performs well. AIO coolers would be cheaper in the future

I haven't been too impressed by the AIO coolers, but I'll admit the Kraken looks very impressive from what I've been hearing. I think right now it's still too early to consider it as an option for someone like me, but as najiro said the prices will go down as they become more popular.

I will have to say the ThermalTake Water 3.0 coolers as well were just showed at CES, so those may have a good chance as well.

Not everyone wants 280/140mm rads as some may prefer slimmer and more used to 120mm radiators, but them two are going to perform the best as in...

Kraken and Water 3.0 those will be the Top two for sure.

You need to get your hands on a Swiftech AIO as well and see how that does, as its a All In One, but also able to add more onto it without voiding warranty ect.

Awesome!
I'm liking the stock fans of those.
I looks like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon fans which are said to be
one of the best radiator fans.

[QUOTE=najiro]H110 and H90?
corsair is really pumped LOL[/QUOTE] I actually tested over 12 new AIO systems, while I was still at Pure OC, including the H90m H100i and H110 using an X79 set up with a 3930K OCed to 4.5GHz.

At that time the new NZXT X60 was beating everything, that is until I installed the four 140mm 2000rpm fans on the Corsair H110. Tested cooling performance at both idle, and underload, and to be very honest with everyone, test results between the X60 and the H110 was so close, that it was impossible to say one was better than the other.

I haven't heard any news as to why Antec changed the look of their AIO watercoolers. Are the new ones still from Asetek? I remember the old ones were somewhat beating the Corsair counterpart in performance. I like the rubber tubes on the old antec coolers too. I hate the stiff tubing my Corsair H50 used to have. Very hard to mount and manipulate even with a spacious full tower I have. I haven't seen the new antec coolers in stores near me so far. I hope to see it reviewed :D

Stan just so you know, There is literitally no performance difference between the h110 and the nzxt x60 because they are based off the same Asetek Cooler, Just different brands and their own softwares and fans.

I am 99% sure on this.

Antec wanted to try something diff making their fans a pump at the same time. Which of course was a bad thing, but if theres further improvement such as Replaceable blades in future for better performance it wont be a problem most likely. This is in a sense new territory and Antec was the first.

The new ones should be from Asetek still too, they use similar mounting system and pumps and tubing ect. Think they are just trying something new and antec wanted to be a part of it. Of course though all I have heard is bad because of the fans.

I tested 11 new AIO Coolers, with the NZXT X60 and the Corsair H110 running equal, but only when I removed the 4 / 140mm 1600 RPM fans from the H110 and replaced them with the 4/140mm 2000RPM fans from the X60

So far the Kuhler 1250 is holding it's own at both Idle and under load temps, with a 3930K OCed to 4.5GHz, with only 2 fans installed

not bad at all with the 1250. i wonder how well the X60 and the H110 would do with the CM JetFlo 140 fans?

What you know about that?
