Hey guys

Has anyone installed the NZXT Kraken 62 with Asus Z270 Maximus IX Code?
I wanted to know if its a tight fit between the Kraken and Memory Sticks.

someone else posted a picture here in these forums showing the tubes interfering with the first memory slot, you would need to rotate the block for clearance

Ive seen more than one post in a few different forums with the Kraken on more than just this platform with clearance issues. Last one I saw the plastic broke and spewed coolant everywhere ruining a MOBO , CPU, RAM, and two graphics cards. I think the case, PSU and SSD was all the survived. You wont catch me using an AIO ever again much less one that has a pre installed stress point.

I think the only way you can go with that cooler is fittings to the bottom.

If you don't plan to use the closet memory slot to the CPU, you'll be ok.
