I'm slowly putting together a delidded 8700K build. I'm trying to decide which AIO water cooler I want and was hoping to get some opinions and advice. The case I'm building in is a Corsair Crystal 570x. Regardless of which AIO I choose, I'll be front-mounting it. It will also be in push/pull configuration as I'll be using Corsair RGB fans in front, then the radiator, then the radiator fans. I'm trying to decide between the NZXT Kraken X62 or the Corsair H150i. With regards to noise versus performance, I very much prefer cooling performance over silence. While I certainly don't want it to sound like a helicopter...the other AIO's I've used in the past have never bothered me. I suppose there is so much other noise in the house, the fans are the least of it I've had decent luck with Corsairs in the past, the H150i is a 360mm radiator, and what few reviews I've read seem to say its pretty quiet but that people were underwhelmed by its cooling performance. The 360mm rad will likely fit perfect in the front of the Crystal 570x. On the downside, I've read that the cold plate is smaller and round and I've read some complaining it might not fit larger CPU's. I'm not sure if that will be an issue with an 8700K or not. At least a smaller block will probably not crowd the memory and such too much. On the other hand, I've read good things about the Kraken X62 as well, the waterblock looks very nice. I'm not sure how a 280mm slightly thicker rad (I'm not looking at the stats now but I think the X62 is thicker) will compare to a slightly thinner 360mm rad. On the downside, the mounting of the 280mm rad to the front of the Crystal 570x probably wont' be as smooth as the 360. Also, I'd read a lot of complaints about the NZXT software for the X62. The software sounds like crap. Lastly, the waterblock is larger and I've read some folks who had to mount the waterblock sideways to keep it from interfering with RAM. Its only a cosmetic thing I realize, but I do prefer to have it mounted right-side up. What do you think? Thanks!
