[LegitReviews]NZXT Announces Kraken G10 Liquid Cooled GPU Mounting Kit - Page 144  

post #1431 of 1588
ok.. pareng maynard, there might be a few things contributing to your not so good temps: An overclock, recycled hot air entering your radiator from other hot components in your case, fan speed of fans too slow or you are not using high static pressure fans, TIM is not well applied- baseplate not having enough pressure on the gpu die or both. Try to isolate your problem one at a time and you'll get it right.

EDIT: I've seen post about the G10 braket and the antec khuler 620, they got similar temps with h50 & h60.
@Frizbeez- wow, you must have a humongous case? what is it? 140mm rear exhaust stock or did you cut your case?

I'm using a NZXT Phantom 530, great case, looks like a sports car. No cutting done to the rear thumb.gif

Thinking of getting one of these for my MSI Gaming R9 290x. Anyone know if this is a compatible card? Check NZXT's website and didn't find any detail on non-reference boards. Appreciate any help, thanks.

thanks tol here is my set up




im using 2 sp 120 fan on the antec kuhler and 2 sp 120 fans aswell on the h100i and 3 deepcool 120 fans on the front

although i think maybe my temps is a little high because i did lap the antec kuhler 620,. maybe a bad contact on the gpu core and the cooler, maybe i need a cooper shim?>

Ahhhh.. there's your problem dude.... if you lapped it it's not making proper contact. You might need a shim but slightly more pressure? is it perfectly flat? hmmm... mahirap pre, daming factors na i consider. ( for me that is ) . Maybe you can make a checklist of all the mods you;ve done and work backwards from there?

yeah maybe the cooler and the gpu die does not have a good contact, vrm rams also doesnt have any heatsinks haha, 74c max load on my vrm1 and 61c on vrm2, im still looking for vrm heatsinks here in the philippines, but i know that vrm max load is 105c , maybe ill just sell the antec h20 620, and yes the cooler cooper is still flat though.

hahaha, ako rin! it's hard to find good heatsinks for vram/vrm here in the Philippines, more so if you're from the provinces (like me). I've custom cut all my heatsinks and they theoretically dissapate 4x more heat than the tiny individual ones due to a much larger surface area. But the problem is i can't find any thermal adhesive tape to mount them. And those selling adhesive tape sell it for roughly $2.50 for a 1cmx2cm rectangle... What a rip-0FF. >.<<br /> EDIT: I cant seem to read my own post.. :O what's up with this.. ?Editing migt fix it?

haha i bought some vrm heatsinks ram from cdr king, and they are a little bit large for the 290x card,. so ill just cut them and try my best to fit them on the 290x, recently i found a dead motherboard with lots of cooper heatsinks,

i will try to put the vrm rams to the cooper bard and put them on the 290x VRm1 ram, the vrm that close to the power supply of the card, ahm do you know where can i buy some artic alumina here in the phillipnes? and i just recycle the thermal pads on the dead mobo smile.gif
