You can see the glow come from the opening in the front, it's not that bright, probably because of the dust filter
Mine is still running strong!
Yeah that sounds like it could be an issue with CAM, very buggy software
They used to get pretty loud when I had them on the preformance preset, but I have since changed to the silent preset. I still get great temps and I never notice the fans running.
I do not think much taller memory would fit, looking at mine the first slot is already very close to the cooler
All the research I did said the pre applied thermal past on the Kraken X62 is pretty good. I watched a lot of videos on the cooler being and installed and almost all of them showed people using the preapplied thermal paste. I bought extra thermal paste as a backup if I felt it needed it, but my temps have been good so far so no need to use it. Thanks for the kind words, good luck on your build!
I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I actually left it alone. I apologize if you felt I was being sarcastic. I'm sure there would be a small decrease in temps with a different thermal paste, but it was nothing I was concerned with.
No I left it alone.
The Grid+ is not needed to control the fans, its just what I used so I could control everything through CAM. My case came with a fan hub already pre installed, but I chose not to use it. So yes you can control fan speeds without the Grid+ :)
Thanks for clearing that up!
That's awesome! There are two channels on each controller, 5 fans per channel. You can control up to 10 fans on one hue+ if you dont use any of the LED strips. My other Hue+ is on the way, one for the fans, and the other to control some LED strips behind my desk
Thank you! I'm not sure cause I removed all the HDD bays and the radiator covers up all the other mounting spots haha Your best bet with a front mounted radiator would be to secure any HDDs to the bottom of the case
Thanks! I had to take the cover off of the front of the PSU Cover then remove the HDD cages underneath it in orderr to get the rad to fit. Unfortunately front mounting the radiator covers up any of the places that are able to hold an HDD mount. This wasn't a problem for me because I don't have an HDD. My best suggestion is if you want to keep the rad mounted up front, get some double sided tape and just secure the HDD to the bottom of the case behind the PSU. It's not the best solution, but I feel that's really the only option with a front mounted rad as large as the x62.
I did and while SP fans would be a little better, it doesn't make a big enough difference to me for it to matter. My temps stay pretty low and I haven't seen a need yet to have SP fans on the rad. Good luck with your build!
For sure, these fans just look incredible and the customization options are endless. Thanks!
Thank you very much :)
I didn't even think about that, but what an awesome idea. Not sure how I would go about that with the way the front panel mounts, but definitely something to consider when I start doing some case modding!
Pretty good, its got the 4 LEDs in a line on the I/O Shroud. Tons of different customization options and light patterns
I looked at a ton of builds in this case before I did mine. Majority of what I was seeing was a front mounted radiator in this case. No issues with it, neither dust nor temps, almost two weeks in. But I will keep in eye on it. If only these damn RGB Rings weren't set to one side of the fan I'd have an easier time arranging everything haha
Two 140s as intake in the front. One 140 on the back and three 120s on the top as exhaust. I knew this wasn't the best fan/radiator setup when I built the computer and knowing that I did it anyways. The computers been built for almost two weeks now and there is almost no dust collection from what I can tell and I am more than happy with my temps. If it ever becomes an issue I'll do what Crustybeaver suggested, but until then I like the way it looks :) I totally get what you're saying though, thanks for the kind words :)
Thank you! That was my 3rd try haha. I'm sure I'll do it again soon
I'll look into it, thanks :)
I didn't think it was that bad at all. I put a level on it, and it was barely off center, like you could barely tell it was off. And thank you, It's hard to find parts for a color scheme other than black and red haha It seems very over used
I haven't really ran any yet. Any suggestions on what to run, because I am quite new to this and there are so many out there. Probably going to wait till after I OC then I'll update the post :)
Grid+ V2 Works awesome, it was the only thing from NZXT I didn't have a problem with. Their CAM software used to control everything is very buggy and I constantly have issues with it not showing my Kraken X62 or Hue+ in the software. The lowest you can run the fans is at 20% according to the software, I don't know if you can get it lower with anything else. I love the fans, I strongly dislike the software. They look incredible, my only issue is the the RGB ring is only on the one side of the fan and can't be moved. So you have to get creative if you want them to be seen and still have good airflow. The Hue+ has 2 channels and each channel can control up to 5 fans. Each fan has a cable to connect to the Grid+ V2. The fans come with in/out connections to chain them together and then the last fan in the chain connects to the Hue+. Hope all this makes sense!
Thank you, had some trouble getting the Hue+ controller to work correctly, but now it works and looks fantastic!
Thanks! The colors are a bit darker in person, but I go back and forth between light and dark blue
Thanks haha! I wanted the build to look as good as it preforms :)
