Hello all,

I'm Chip, and it's been a really long time since I've built myself a computer. I recently put one together and decided to house it in a NZXT S340. I could not be happier with the case. Easy to build in, great looking and massive inside. Anyhow, I've been trying to decide on an AIO liquid cooler and am left with a couple of questions. I think I would like to, if possible, put a liquid cooler on both the GPU and CPU. I know that both the Kraken X62 and Kraken X31 will fit my case separately, but can I fit both in at the same time? If not, does anyone have any suggestions about how to cool both components at once?

And one quick follow up question regarding the X62, or any of NZXT's coolers for that matter. Can I replace the fans that come installed on the coolers with the AER RGB fans that they offer?

Thanks so much to anyone who even takes a moment to glance at my first post.
I look forward to getting to know the community and hopefully contribute to it in some mild way.

Current specs in case anyone is curious:
i7-7700
Asus z270-a Prime Motherboard
16 GB Corsair Dominator RAM
Samsung EVO 250 GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD
NZXT S340

Adding an Asus Strix 1070 8OG this weekend

Yes you can do both. You would put the 280mm rad up front. I would suggest leaving those fans as stock and having them push air across the rad and in to the case.

You can then use the 120mm AiO on the gpu at the exhaust fan area on the back of the case. Again push the air out of the case and mount your AER RGB fan there.

I would put the top fans as the front fan as Intake so you are pulling cool air in to mix with the hot air and provide some positive pressure. The rear top fan as exhaust. Those two fans can be AER RGB as well.

Thanks a ton for the quick response and the advice on where to push and pull the air. I know that was a question I would be on here asking later.
