[LegitReviews]NZXT Announces Kraken G10 Liquid Cooled GPU Mounting Kit - Page 31  

post #301 of 1588
Anyone have an idea if these GV-N680OC-4GD are nvidia reference boards?

Gigabyte GTX680 4 Gb verison

and if they would work with the G10?

You can buy the Arctic Cooling Hybrid VGA cooler in the UK now cheaper then using one of these brackets and an CPU cooler.

Yeah but it's far uglier and only allows you to use a 120mm rad

Just looking at the compatibility charts, they have the 270, 290 but no 280??? Also I've never done liquid cooling before, does this need a dedicated radiator or do you just attach it to your existing one? To put it another way, if I wanted to cool my CPU and both GPUS would need three radiators or just one assuming that radiator was large enough... And would the X60 be considered large enough?

Thanx

You don't need a dedicated rad but back when I had a custom loop I went with the rule that each thing you add such as a CPU or GPU to the loop, I would add another rad. So in your case I'd have 2-3 rads

The Hybrid is a better looking solution than this (IMO). It also does a better job of directing airflow over the PCB and includes VRAM/circuitry heatsinks. Hopefully the G10 accommodates such heatsinks, because I would not run it naked. The G10 is a good bit taller and overhangs the side of the PCB as well.

Its redeeming quality is the choice of all-in-one cooler and fan, but I would have made a few changes, personally.

It's not ugly at all, it's a much more polished product that has a much better mounting system, better air flow design and allows you to use VRM sinks that are of a decent size.

To me the plastic on the arctic cooler is what makes it look too cheap for me to want to spend that. I basically use this product and love it, the h70 keeps my gtx770 about 20c cooler. The one nice thing is asus includes a heatsink for the VRM's so thats my peace of mind. The naked memory modules with airflow from a 140mm fan mounted about 4" away keeps them cool overclocked to 7600mhz gaming (peak 56c in 76-68F ambient).

I used to have heatsinks on the memory but took them off when I put the stock cooler back on, now that the h70 is on again, I may put the heatsinks back on to feel comfortable gaming at 8000mhz. So considering this bracket is like the dwood one, memory heatsinks should clear. I used enzotech heatsinks.

Believe these are the exact ones but can confirm later when I find my box
