Hello guys,
I want your opinions, based on pros & cons, on which of the following AIO coolers I should buy for my system build.

I am considering these 3 AIO coolers:

1) Corsair H115i Pro RGB

2) NZXT Kraken X62

3) Deepcool Captain 360 EX White RGB

 

My system Build:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x

Motherboard: Asus Prime X470 Pro

RAM: 2 x HyperX Predator 8GB DDR4-2666MHz

GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX1060 6GB OC Windforce

Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400 TG

Cooling: 2 x SCYTHE SLIP STREAM 120MM CASE FAN, 2 x Phanteks PH-F120SP Black

Storage: 1 x Samsung 960 Evo M.2, 1 x SSD CRUCIAL MX500 500GB, 1 x HDD SEAGATE BARRACUDA 2TB

PSU: Seasonic Focus 850W Platinum

 

Also if you have any other suggestions with price under 225$, you are welcome to write it in your comments. Thanks

Of those three I prefer the NZXT Kraken, just because the infinity mirror design looks great. You'll get similar performance out of all of them.

 

Do note that in your case you can only place radiators that large in the front of the case.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I like that design too. And yes I know I can only place it in the front of the case.

It is indeed a good cooler but I wish to go to an AIO water cooling option.

Mostly for beauty. Also emptying some space will make my build look "cleaner".

I mean, most of them listed above are aseteks, so it really depends on the ecosystem you want/have and what the price difference is

I can recommend the kraken. Have the smaller brother X52 myself w/ 2700x. Idles around mid to high 20’s and under normal use around 33c. 

 

Absolute love the look of it and the mirror is pretty slick !

Full load lets say BFV ultra settings DRX enabled DX12 etc etc runs about 65c. background word, excel, Powerpoint, spotify.

 

CSGO runs around 55-61c

And also note that I have the 240mm rad, you're getting the 360mm rad if you were buying the X62, so larger radiator, as well as a extra fan, so cooling should even be better.

 

Do note I have my 2700x Oc'd at 4.1GhZ running @ 1.36v

 

Also running aida64Extreme for an hour CPU temps dont go above 70c~ with some cores spiking to 76c

Actually, X62 is not 360mm. It is 280mm but again it will provide some better cooling i guess. I am planning to overclock in the near future so I want cooling to be sufficient for that.
