You guys have sold me. I'll be ordering a G10 shortly.

In putting my shopping list together I discovered there is a wide variety of VRAM heatsink sizes available on a site like FrozenCPU. Is there a standard size I need to look for or do I need to get more precise? I'm shopping for an XFX 7870 Core Edition 2GB, part number is Hynix H5G02H24MFR-T2C.

I'll be buying the following pieces:
  • Kraken G10
  • CPU AIO Water Cooler (thoughts/recommendations?)
  • VRAM heatsink (w/ or w/o pads, depending on what I need to buy)

Do let me know if I need to get anything else. This thread has been indispensable.

Did you try turning the case on its side like we suggested? Sounds like you got an air bubble. Turn the case on its side and if it does not stop the noise, then RMA the cooler.

Hi Lowball020,
It's cool seeing somebody somebody with a similar setup and seeing how it would look in my case.
Nice setup. thumb.gif

I just feel like since I already have the H110 in this case and also running SLI I don't want to invest in $40 per bracket and another $40-100 a piece on coolers.
I'd probably also want to go all out and get a pair of H90s for each card just for the 140m radiators!
Better fan selection for radiators in the 120mm class though

At that point I'd just offload the H110 and go with a full custom cpu/gpu loop!

Did you happen to try putting that top 140mm as an intake?
If you do you also may want to try just cutting a divider out of something like cardboard to put between the two top fans to channel air flow better.

Just speculating and I think that could also drop some temperatures and optimize airflow a bit more as all the air from the front 120mm and that top 140mm flipped as an intake would then be channeled towards the ram and heatsink.

The top 140mm exhaust would then draw the warm air up and out from the heatsink and vrm area.

There is A LOT less heat in my case without the 4 EVGA ACX fans.

Just wondering if anyone has heard from Deadpool here in a while? I have tried PMing him about getting my 2nd G10 that I ordered and only got 1 of the 2 originally, but haven't heard anything from him in a while. I know I heard a while back that they had issues with some of the black ones (which is what i ordered), Just not sure, has anyone gotten a Black G10 recently? Last I heard my 2nd one was supposed to ship on the 17th, and that obviously didn't happen frown.gif

Yeah, tried turning my case to the side as well as a tad upside down to get the water moving a little and here it bubble then let it sit for a second still made the noise. put it back to standing up right and still there frown.gif

here is a audio clip i made with my phone. just stuck my phone under my video card. had it running. unplugged the power to the pump to give you ref of what it sounds like with it off. and back on.

I'm not sure if this will apply to you as well but my brother ordered 2 black ones, 1 for himself and 1 for me back in early February. Anyways, payment info was messed up and that screwed up our order. After getting the run around from NZXT and 4 or 5 different phone numbers to call, the order was fixed except if we wanted the black versions, shipping wouldn't be until April or so. He switched to the white versions and they were shipped out a couple days ago.

Do you know any websites where they are in stock? I've been looking for one since January.

Yep, sounds like a small air bubble trapped. If you can't get it to clear from the pump, then you probably will need to RMA. redface.gif

If you want a black one you are going to be waiting a while. Like RaginPwner said, it took me forever to get my order straightened out and the next batch of black ones won't be out until the end of April. I changed the order to 2 white ones and I'm just going to paint both of them.
