Default New king of AIO water-coolers?

I have tested several coolers in the past couple of months: three from TT (Performer, Pro, Extreme), four from Corsair (H55, H60 r2, H100i, and 80i which isnt posted yet) two from Enermax (240, 120 not posted), one from CM (Seidon 120m not posted yet), NZXT Kraken (X60, X40 not posted yet).

Which one you think is the best overall performer? And by how much?

They all look very similar LOL X__X
Aren't they from Asetek and was just rebranded?
I would guess it would be ThermalTake's Extreme! TT have some cheap but very powerful fans. Their thunderblade in particular is loud but powerful... using it for my H50.

Will be posting soon but the NZXT Kraken line is a really beast compared to the others AIOs.

Really! Hmmmmm that's interesting!
I was a NZXT fan. Their cases in particular which looks sleek and modern. But the cleaning part of their cases is what I hate.
The kraken looks similar to antec kuhler. I like the design overall. It would be interesting if it performs well. AIO coolers would be cheaper in the future

I haven't been too impressed by the AIO coolers, but I'll admit the Kraken looks very impressive from what I've been hearing. I think right now it's still too early to consider it as an option for someone like me, but as najiro said the prices will go down as they become more popular.

I will have to say the ThermalTake Water 3.0 coolers as well were just showed at CES, so those may have a good chance as well.

Not everyone wants 280/140mm rads as some may prefer slimmer and more used to 120mm radiators, but them two are going to perform the best as in...

Kraken and Water 3.0 those will be the Top two for sure.

You need to get your hands on a Swiftech AIO as well and see how that does, as its a All In One, but also able to add more onto it without voiding warranty ect.
