    Doesn’t NZXT already have an AIO cooler called Kraken on the market already? If so, I can see them wanting to chop off Razer’s tentacles.

      Yeah they do, but maybe they’re a little more grown up than the majority of other brands.

    • I doubt there would be grounds for a legal case, totally different market segments (liquid CPU cooler vs stereo headset)

      • Wayne

        Possibly but there must’ve been lawsuits over more trivial matters in the past. In this game you can never tell.

      Razer had the Kraken headset out before NZXT released their Kraken cooler
