Top 10 Water Cooling Kits at PB Tech!

Posted in Articles on 16/11/2017 (updated on 22/1/2019)

Things are really heating up in NZ so today we’re taking a quick look at the best AiO Water Cooling kits from Cooler Master, Corsair, Deepcool, AsusThermalTake and NZXT!

A quick note for those who are new to AiO (All in One) Water Cooling and why we want it; having a watercooling kit fitted inside your Gaming PC can reduce noise & temperatures not only on the component it's directly fitted too, but also the overall system due to the way the kits flexible radiator placement lets you move the heat away from other components, also, the small form factor or AiO kits often allow for better airflow over the motherboard itself. Also worth mentioning, some of the kits look absolutely fantastic, but that's subjective so for now...

Let's kick back and CHILL :P

The Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120 is the current king of AiO Water Cooling kits, optimised for low noise and high performance while still being extremely easy to install with a 120mm radiator and compatibility with both the latest Intel and Ryzen sockets, and also older CPU socket types.

Installing is easy thanks to very smart design, small touches like the way in which Cooler Master made the bracket attachment screws come in from underneath so they hold in place while you secure them and the included RGB hub for users that don't have a dedicated RGB header on their motherboard put this kit ahead of the rest. 

And speaking of RGB lighting features, it's also compatible with Asus AURA, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSi Mystic Light Sync and ASRock RGB LED making this kit pretty darn appealing for anyone that's working with multiple RGB components in their system.

With the new Cooler Master ML240R Watercooling in your system it's going to turn heads, this kit is so attractive to the eyes (and ears, it's super quiet) that your undoubtedly going to have trouble focusing on your screen :) Included are 2x 120MM MasterFan MF120R ARGB and that A indicates the addressable nature of the fans, allowing us to have true rainbow effects or solid colours. The tubing is both durable and flexible for the perfect positioning and for those who don't have the room for a full 240mm setup, you'll be happy to know that there is also an 120mm ML120R RGB available!

Both are packing an AM4 socket bracket within the box making is savvy for your next Ryzen build, and you're also good to use with new Coffee Lake Intel CPU which continue to work with the 1151 socket type.

Picture of NZXT Kraken X62 at PB Tech

The popular NZXT Kraken X62 features one of the most eye-catching CPU block/pump combos in all-in-one liquid coolers. It is extremely quiet and backed by an industry-leading 6-year warranty. The infinity mirror design is fitted with some impressive multi-zone RGB lighting that you control with NZXT's own CAM software package, and through CAM's software interface you will also be able to fine-tune settings to ensure optimal performance, even in the most intense gaming sessions.

This range finds itself in an interesting spot with some of the NZ stock for the product pre-dating the Ryzen platform and others including the AM4 bracket. Make sure you check the box when purchasing, but if you do find yourself in need of a bracket those fine folks at NZXT have us covered. Just submit a support ticket with the AM4 Bracket subject option and they will send one out to you, they will even cover the shipping costs :) Great stuff NZXT!

Picture of EVGA 240 Water Cooling Kit at PB Tech

Our favourite mid-range pick is the EVGA 240 by providing users with excellent value and performance. The specially designed fans deliver perfect cooling and minimal noise because of the creative form of its blades to deliver optimal cooling, while the unit’s housing is curved to lessen the noise it generates. This means you can enjoy your high-performance gaming for hours without having your ears overloaded with unwanted noises.

The CLC 240 is very easy to install and the RGB lighting can indicate when the PC temperature is getting hot or cool with colours, although we doubt the light will ever indicate hot! The most excellent feature of this unit has to be the novel EVGA flow control software that enables you to monitor and control the speed of the pump, fan speed/curve and the RGD LED.

Picture of CRYORIG A40 Ultimate Water Cooling Kit at PB Tech

The CRYORIG A40 Ultimate proves that anything is possible with the functionality of Hybrid Liquid Cooling. CRYORIG has conquered flaws that conventional closed looped cooling & air-cooling has through adding a proprietary airflow fan for significantly enhanced HLC (Hybrid Liquid Cooling). Cooler components, more system stability and longer PC longevity, what more could you want!

No matter where the hot spots are around your CPU, the CRYORIG HLC airflow fan can be orientated in both push or pull force for all around directional control. The PWM airflow fan can modify fan RPM speed based on the heat and processing load of the system, which allows a better user experience for reduced usage and noise when not required.

Picture of Corsair Hydro Series H60 AIO Water Cooling Kit at PB Tech

All-in-one liquid cooling for the price of air, the Corsair Hydro Series H60 V2 is our pick for the best value for money and performance. The liquid cooler features a 120mm radiator built for low-noise liquid CPU cooling and bold styling with a white LED-lit pump head. The new H60 heavily outperforms other 120mm competitors and is more in line with 140mm and 240mm coolers. This gives users a small 120mm size, easy to install and compatible with most cases liquid cooler, that has packed into it the power of higher models!

The fan speed can be dynamically adjusted between 600 RPM to 1,700 RPM, making it easy to minimise noise or maximise airflow to eliminate heat. Overall, if you take into consideration the seamless installation, the efficiency and performance levels, as well as the reasonable price, the H60 is an excellent buy for all.

Picture of Captain 240mm white water cooling kit at PB Tech

The Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain 240mm Water Cooling Kit is quite unique in the way that it's white, one of the few options available for those going for that killler Storm Trooper themed PC. Looks wise it comes off well with the contrasting black tubing and fan blades seemingly making that white colouring POP even more. Styled with that signature Deepcool steampunk appearance, the almost custom visible liquid flow tube and a subtle white LED light on the CPU block/pump combo this is one fine looking option for sure, though it does pre-date Ryzen grab a Deepcool compatible AM4 bracket on this one, on the Intel side however - we're still looking good!

ASUS ROG RYUJIN 240 Water Cooling Kit at PB Tech

ASUS has brought us a beautiful piece of tech with the ROG RYUJIN 240 that will complete your high-end build and deliver the best thermal performance. The RYUJIN features two 120mm industrial-grade Noctua iPPC-2000 PWM fans that deliver high performance and low-noise at all times. The fans generate a speed of up to 2,000 RPM, but are still extremely efficient with a 29.7-db(A) acoustic footprint that is much quieter than competing fan coolers.

If the performance and specs aren’t enough for you, the RYUJIN is the world’s first AIO cooler to feature an embedded 1.77-inch LiveDash colour OLED that displays useful stats, such as temperatures, voltages, fan speeds and you can even customise it to play GIFs! The sleek Aura RGB lighting can be further enhanced with ASUS Aura Sync, which gives users the full control of harmonised lighting effects and lets you dial in the vibe you want quickly and easily. ROG RYUJIN is the ultimate cooling solution that exudes a vibrant glow at the heart of your build!

Picture of Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 AIO Water Cooling at PB Tech

The Thermaltake Floe Riing RGB 360 takes lighting to a completely new level with the possibility of 16.8 million colours inside the liquid CPU cooler. The LED Waterblock design features six addressable LEDs, amazing light coverage and the built-in LED ring can paint your build with an endless amount of colours. The lighting effects can synchronize with the fans to provide a luminescent, glow at the heart of your PC that can be fully appreciated with a tempered glass case.

The Floe Riing features three 120mm RGB fans that utilise compression blades and hydraulic bearing to provide a quite experience. The patented Riing Plus RGB Software gives users unique control over the fan performance, lighting effects and fan speeds, which is available through the exclusively designed mobile app.

Picture of Corsair Hydro Series H100I AIO Water Cooling Kit at PB Tech

Building on from the previous Hydro Series version, this larger kit gives users a more powerful and higher performance liquid cooler. The Corsair Hydro Series H100I features two 120mm ML series magnetic levitation bearing PWM fans that deliver incredible airflow of up to 2,400 RPM at low noise levels.

The Corsair iCUE software brings your system to life with dynamic synchronisation that gives you full control over RGB lighting and pump features. There is full fan and pump speed options including a zero RPM mode that allows fans to stop entirely at low temperatures. On top of this, the H100I is easy to install and gives users full control and customisation easily.
