    i have a kraken x62 and running the pump at 100% is pretty much unaudible when my case is shut and i have headphones on. Is it true that running the pump at high rpm can actually increase liquid temp rather than cool it? In cam software the kraken can go from 60% to 100% silent mode starts at...
