NZXT Kraken X53 R1
The Kraken X-3 RGB is a stunning must-have for any build with the addition of NZXT RGB fans. You can fine-tune settings with CAM's software interface, ensuring optimal performance and giving you complete RGB control. The new Kraken X series maintains the customizable lighting effects and quiet performance of previous generations and adds a RGB connector for even more RGB options. With a re-designed cap and larger infinity mirror ring LED, the Kraken X-3 RGB delivers an amazing experience in luminous liquid cooling.
Bigger and brighter
A 10% bigger LED ring allows for more vivid RGB. A rotatable top accommodates re-orienting the logo no matter the direction the cooler is installed.
Vivid and silent
Dramatic lighting effects complement your system with the addition of included Aer RGB 2 fans. Fans feature a winglet-tip fan blade design producing optimal airflow while keeping the fans as quiet as possible. Fluid dynamic bearings in every fan provide long-lasting, near-silent operation.
Fine nylon mesh sleeves strengthen the rubber tubing, providing durability and protection against mishandling. Adjust the orientation of the pump head to fit the needs of your motherboard without affecting the direction of the logo. The pump orientation can be changed in 30° increments to reduce interference with other components.
CAM provides sophisticated controls with an intuitive, user-friendly interface. Now with better sync for lighting across all NZXT RGB devices, full CAM integration allows you to manage your Kraken's performance with precision, making adjustments with the click of a button.

Purchase the non-RGB X53 or a different AIO
The unit works well for cooling and the pump RGB looks great (software is good). Although, the Aer RGB fans included will not work with the software unless you pay extra ($55) for the NZXT RGB and Fan controller. Nowhere was this mentioned when purchasing so keep that in mind. I'd recommend just purchasing the non-RGB version instead and saving some money or going for a different AIO.
