[LegitReviews]NZXT Announces Kraken G10 Liquid Cooled GPU Mounting Kit - Page 152

A Corsair H55 is what I used and the last of my Tuniq-TX3 tongue.gif

NINJA EDIT: @Maynard Since we both live in the Philippines I think you should take a look at my fan curve settings seeing as we both should have similar ambient temps.



I based it on our usual ambient temps of highest ambient approx. 32-36°c and since the Antec Khuler 620 has similar performance to my measly H55 you can assume that the fan curve will work for you too.

Actually have a Kraken G10 that I bought on an impulse at Microcenter. Been sitting on it for a while, and now tempted to use it on a 7950 that I have sitting around. Curious if I could use the MSI heat spreader (basically a cut out sheet of alum?) to be the heat sink for the VRM & memory? It's not finned as a normal heat sink, but it is over the who block. Looks like I would have to do some cutting to make it fit with the G10

EDIT: you can see the "sink" in this pic from KitGuru:

Shouldn't there be a Kraken G10 club or something by now? This is hardly news anymore...

You'll need a shim, but I don't believe you'll need to cut your unisink.
post #1515 of 1588
Like the idea of shimming it out. Keep original unmodded for resale, etc. Feel a little stupid that I didn't think of it rolleyes.gif Thanks!
Now I have to go play with some different thicknesses to find the best one. (EDIT: any guesses, likely start at the thickness of the heat spreader - and that is in addition to the 7950/7970 shim)

At this point, a club sounds like a good idea.

5mm was what I heard but you can put a transparent ruler to your pcb and make an educated guess. smile.gif

NINJA EDIT: Make sure your G10 screws are long enough though, your shim might make it difficult to mount your AIO aaaand if you force it, you'll crack your GPU's die.

Not all 7950/70 need a shim. Get a straight edge and check if the core sticks out past the protector first.
Both my 7970s didnt need one because the core stuck out 2-3mm past the protector. So using a shim would just raise the core temp as there is more between the cooler and core for heat to pass though.
