As always, the packaging -- well, everything is packaged, cushioned and bundled safely in the box. Let's open it up . Once unboxed you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting of the radiator, fan, tubing, pump/cooling block. Most of the kit is pre-fitted and ready to use of course.
You'll spot a back plate that support a wide variety of CPU sockets. Intel Socket 1155, 1156, 1366, 2011 Core i7 / Core i5 / Core i3 AMD Socket AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1 Phenom II / Ahtlon II / Phenom / Athlon FX / Athlon X2 / Athlon / Sempron / Dual-Core Opteron / Opteron / Fusion based processors can be used in combination with this cooler.
Included items are:
Multi-platform mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets
Dual High Performance Fans
Fan and radiator mounting screws
Thermal compound (pre-applied)
Quick Start Guide
Washers screws and other small kit gear.
So summed up, once unboxed you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fan and brackets + back plate that support a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors. A little thermal paste is pre-applied on the cooler for you.
Here we have the Kraken X60 unit, we'll need to mount the two variable PWM fans (138mm), pump and radiator assembled in one single unit. Both fans are re-wired on one connector and are controlled from a RPM/PWM controller that resides in the cooling block. With Kraken control software you can regulate it and setup you RPM preferences. We'll show you that later on in the article.
