[LegitReviews]NZXT Announces Kraken G10 Liquid Cooled GPU Mounting Kit - Page 66  

post #651 of 1588
So for VRM cooling my R9 290 I was recommended to try this Gelid kit out. It seems it'll be great for what I need, but I was wondering: do the memory modules need heatsinks as well if I'm looking to overclock?

And one last question, anyone know if you can use a full backplate or do you have to use the NZXT mount? Surely something like this backplate would work? Doesn't matter if not, just looks nicer smile.gif

This looks like a viable option to replace my Gigabyte Winforce 3x 7970 Ghz Edition card's noisey fans. They used to be silent, but now they are making a whining noise that is driving me nuts.

 

That being said, I did some digging and it turns out that this should, with 98% certainty, fit my 7970.

 

The only concern I have is if the thermal paste on an Antec 620 Khuler is enough for my 7970; and what the specs are on the included 92mm fan. . .

they should be all #1 and #0 "philips" screws if your card is a reference model.

on the recent 290s? I can't say i've taken apart all of them so far, but those are the only ones i've seen. (and the proper term, is Torx T6) and honestly, a T6 seems a little small for anything but the "back plate"
