Great results

Strengths:

- I have the NZXT H510 elite which has 2 - 140mm RGB fans where this cooler mounts so I was able to keep those fans and mount the rest of this unit without any issues. - I have a Ryzen 2700 that I was cooling with the stock cpu fan and it typically ran at 38-40 degrees at idle and in the high 60's under load. With this cooler my Idle temp has been reduced to 28 or 29 degrees (same load temps) and I notice that my burst clock speeds have gone up. - Cam Software works well with this unit and the case lights and fans. No setup required.

Additional Comments:

I bought this unit because I'm thinking of updating my processor and I wanted to have the right cooling solution when I do but it's made my existing cpu noticeably more responsive so I may just keep it a while longer and wait until the next generation ryzens are released.

Performs worse than counterparts

Strengths:

RGB looks nice, fans are not loud at low RPMs.

Weaknesses:

Cooling is not any different from counterparts such as corsair, Noctua, and it's priced way higher. The pump noise is disgustingly loud.

Additional Comments:

I have bought 3 of these now, returned the first one, RMA'd the second, and now the third x63 I got sent from NZXT as a replacement unit also has the same issue. All these have extremely loud pump whine, did not matter how I mounted it I could not get rid of the noise, I'd say save your time and money and just get a different AIO cooler.

Avoid buying if using AMD CPU

Strengths:

A great cooler, fans run a bit loud but keeps my cpu under 50 degrees on load most of the time, no issues with the hardware itself.

Weaknesses:

NZXT Cams, the software needed to control the LEDS and Fan controls is constantly causing freezing issues for AMD CPU users. It happens either during boot or randomly such as exiting or entering a game. You will have to either uninstall it or disable it on startup if you don't want any freezing issues.

Additional Comments:

If you're not interested in changing the RGB leds or setting the fan speed, than this product works great. However if you want to utilize the cooler to the best of its ability and justify the amount of money you paid for this cooler and adjust the leds and fan speed/curve, avoid it and buy another company's cooler until NZXT can fix their horrible software.
