    @Worf, in Game of Thrones, the Dragon Queen, Daenerys, could walk through fire and not be burned.
    She was also called Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Stormborn and the khaleesi
    (although I don't understand why each component has to have a special name)

    At the start of this thread I asked which one I should buy, The Corsair Hydro H115 or the NZXT Kraken X62 ? Now I have both

    If you remember my old 6700K with the ASUS Z170-A Prime Motherboard and the Corsair 16GB 2400 RAM I had before the small upgrade. The friend I sold them too which I mentioned in a other treat on the forum who also bought my Zotac GTX 1070 AMp Extreme, bought a new case and Cooler to go with these part he has bought for his new gaming rig:

    To the point now: I was running my 6700K @ 4.5GHz with max temps (while running AVX) of around 65 - 70+ which as OK but when building and setting up my friends system I discovered that these temps while running the same tests were under 60 so I clocked him up to 4.7 GHz with a tiny voltage increase and running the same tests again his temps were in the mid 60's. He bought the H115 (which was a rename of the H110i GTX).

    I have bought the NZXT Kraken X62 which the temps and noise levels are excelant.

    My new system with the X62:

    I decided to RMA the H110i GTX back to corsair and have now just received:

    Cheers @ThrashZone Have they tested the delidded temps? If not I hope this allows you to run at the temps you feel comfortable running.

    Did you send only your CPU or your whole system?
