    Hi,
    I'd go with the Kraken I almost did but MicroCenter didn't have one
    It has a 30mm thick radiator verses 25mm corsair but I believe both are single core but I haven't really seen any official # on how thick the corsair one is.

    Corsair has had a lot of software issues and they don't really acknowledge/ fix any of them on their forum that I've read anyway.

    Since I just used one H115i compared to the H110i GT "should of gotten the GTX" I already had the H115i seems a little funkier all of the hook ups are different and not in a good way
    Rad seems cheaper/ lighter weight

    For the money is why most people go that route since the custom loop route is more than twice the costs.
    I have a Corsair H75 CPU cooler that does not require software but The Strafe RGB Keyboard and The M65 Pro RGB mouse does but they use default MS drivers CUE is only used for the lighting effect. Worse Purchase I ever made. They are quite lacking in support.

    Question: What is the intended use of your AIO CPU Cooler?
    I would say he is going to use it to cool his CPU. Where are you going with this question?

    Hi,
    Well you just described why I went the custom loop kit route
    To expensive for the look I am going for so a AIO will do.

    Well no kidding.....but where I was going with this is; If he is not going to OC the CPU....liquid cooling is moot. Other than OC'ing.....liquid cooling has no viable use. They are louder and the degree difference with out OC'ing is negligible. For me a 2 degree difference isn't worth the cost. Even if OC'ing the degree difference isn't that much more. Check out Linus at Linus tech tips for comparisons on AIO coolers vs air coolers.
