  • Summary: UPDATED! The NZXT Kraken X40 is a small self contained CPU liquid cooling system based on the exceptionally popular Asetek platform. As with most all-in-one liquid coolers, the Kraken X40 is differentiated from its sister model - the Kraken X60 - by its thinner 140mm-sized aluminum heat exchanger.

X-bit labs
5 May 2013
  • Summary: Larger radiator and a large 140 mm fan, fortified pump and longer tubing, user-friendly software for management and monitoring – will that be enough to outperform the best air cooler?

  • Summary: The all in one Liquid Cooling kits are becoming a new trend, quite a few companies are releasing these products, most of them all use Asetek as an OEM. That's also why the product will be fairly close to each other in terms of performance.

  • Summary: The NZXT Kraken X40 proved to be an excellent liquid cooling system for CPUs. It performed wonderfully in the Extreme mode, and combined high cooling performance with low noise level in the Silent mode. The product is well-made and has an excellent overall quality.

NZXT Kraken X40 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

25 January 2013
  • Conclusion: NZXT’s Kraken X40 will be coming to most markets very soon, within the next month for most retailers, and it will hit the shelves at about £85 in the UK. Relatively speaking, this is priced dangerously close to Corsair’s H100i which offers more performance, performance potential and expandability.

NZXT Kraken X40 Review

KitGuru
28 February 2013
  • Excerpt: 0 Flares 0 Flares × Today we are going to take a look at the Kraken X40, which is one of NZXT’s first attempts at a performance liquid cooler.  It is a similar design to the X60, however it features a smaller 140 mm radiator for those who don’t have room for a 280 mm unit in their case.

NZXT Kraken X40

16 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Zusammenfassend lässt sich festhalten, dass die Kompaktwasserkühlung selbst schwierigen Situationen standhalten kann. Bei einer CPU-Spannung von 1,2V bei unserem i5-2500K und einer Lüfterspannungen von 7V wurde eine Differenztemperatur von 30°C gemessen,  wird die Lüfterspannung auf 12V angehoben...
  • Cons: Der NZXT Kraken X40 ist ohne Probleme dazu in der Lage, High-End CPUs zu kühlen. Auf Overclocking muss dabei nicht verzichtet werden, genug Reserven sind zweifelsfrei vorhanden. Für 100€ bekommt man eine leistungsstarke Kompaktwasserkühlung.

31 January 2013
  • Conclusion: På pappret ser NZXT:s Kraken X40 ut som en riktig vinnare, med en stor radiator och purfärsk design från en välrenommerad kylartillverkare i ryggen. Aseteks fjärde generations vattenkylare är utan tvekan en trevlig uppgradering över sina föregångare, vilket syntes tydligt i testerna med genomgående...
  • Pros: Godkänd prestanda, Utnyttjar trenden med större fläktar, Enkel montering
  • Cons: Medioker prestanda i jämförelse med konkurrenterna, Endast en medföljande fläkt, Bitvis skakig mjukvara, Priset

Gamezoom.NET
20 December 2012
  • Summary: Mit der Kraken X40 liefert NZXT eine hervorragende Komplett-Wasserkühlung ab. Nicht nur puncto Leistung, Lautstärke und Verarbeitungsqualität lässt unser Testmuster die Konkurrenz alt aussehen, sondern auch die Ausstattung in Form der Beleuchtung und Software-Steuerung weiß zu gefallen.
  • Pros: top Verarbeitung, sehr gute Kühlleistung, auch bei max. Umdrehungszahl leise, passt auf alle gängigen Sockeltypen drauf, hochwertiger Lüfter im Lieferumfang enthalten, HUE-Beleuchtung, Steuerung per Software
  • Cons: etwas teurer als die Konkurrenz
