When I had my acx 780 I would never go post 70c. And it was silent

I hope you mean January 21st.... Mine should be shipping in that batch as well. Can't wait to try it out with the cheapest AIO I can find.

so i have been thinking about this issue for a while and here is my take.

"It needs heat sinks included for the VRM and RAM, i run my card for mining and the temps will be just to high!"
This issue could be easily solved by offering a version of the G10 that includes heat sinks for a small increase in the cost of the G10.

I see no reason why you guys (NZXT) could not create a "separate" product that includes a heat sink pack along with the bracket and fan, this way the people who are concerned about VRM and RAM temps (VRM>RAM for most people) could have the peace of mind of having a extra layer of thermal protection on their card.

*obviously these quotes are a generalization and not a direct quote from anyone, this just seems to be the biggest complaint is that people who are putting a lot of stress on their card complain about VRM temps, NZXT says "under normal operation the cooling is fine" then the miners say "but you don't account for us, people who mine and get temps close to furmark!"

I don;t really see an issue with what NZXT has said. It seems to me that their stance is that if you use your card in "normal" conditions that the cooling for VRM will be fine, and anyone using their card for "non-standard" stuff like mining or benchmarking should expect to have to buy heat sinks for the VRM to control temps.

An easy way for NZXT to head off complaints though would be to offer an "extreme OC" version what comes with heat sinks and compound.

anyway that's my 2cents.gif I have ordered two of these and will be getting them on the next ship out, once i get and install them I will post here with my own results and experience.

Oh and btw if this doesn't make much sence i'm going on about 30min of sleep last night (kids) so keep that in mind biggrin.gif

Your post makes sense. The only reason I can think as to why they don't include VRM and VRAM heat sinks, is because the G10 is quite universal and a heat sink kit would not be. They would either have to offer a wide variety of kits to choose from or include a standard set that would still require certain users to have to purchase unique heat sinks to fit their needs. Why not just leave it like it is and allow the user the freedom to purchase the heat sinks they need, while keeping the G10 price low? I think that was/is NZXT's reasoning behind not offering any heat sinks.

Thats hitting it really close.

Its like the small issue with the copper shim too. The added costs for adding these items will make the price go up and that isnt something that we wanted to do. By releasing it like we did at the price point without those items entitles everyone that they are able to use the G10 without fear of needing the other items.

There are 100's of different cards and different configs and that makes it near impossible to account for with one standard heatsink kit.

can someone be a pal and messure the gap between the top of the video card to the bracket. going to buy some vrm heatsinks and i want to know how much clearance (in mm if possible) i have. right now i found some nice copper ones but they're 12mm high. not sure if that's to tall and would hit the bracket or not.

let me know thanks smile.gif

I've been impressed with the NZXT X40 AIO on the gpu so now I'm considering adding an X60 for the cpu. Will the NZXT control software recognize two installed coolers?

yes, I'm fairly certain it will recognize both coolers. the only issue is that they would both have to be plugged into their own USB header (using a y-cable wouldn't work). this would be a problem for me, personally, because my Maximus V Formula only has (2) USB 2.0 headers so I would have to get a PCI expansion card if I wanted to have front card reader/front I/O panel still functional as (2) Kraken coolers would use up all my available headers.

they don't quite work right
both coolers are controlled yes, but to the software they appear as one unit, so fan profiles, etc (the reasons for the software) are all inclusive. there is no way to control just one, or just the other,
so your GPU and your CPU will be controlled by the temps of ONE of them. (not SURE on this, but they do have the same fan profile for sure)
