Here's a picture of it with the main heatsink off.

Yep, your card is good to go.

for a single GPU? yes, I think it would be pointless to have a double-wide rad. I doubt temps would go down any over a single 140mm rad

I can't say for sure, of course, because I have not seen any testing, however

I got one of these brackets made by Dwood on these forums a while back, and it was the single best mod I have done in a long time. The temp drop is just astounding and obviously the sound is much more bearable. Clearly a custom loop does this - and better. However not everyone has time for the extra maintenance with a custom loop and just want to "set it and forget it."

I have had my Antec 620 Kuhler keeping my GTX 680 under 50-52C in BF4 full load on 2560x1440 and I couldn't be happier. Plus it looks awesome!

Glad this bracket is going more mainstream for when I update my GPU in a year or two. I'd like to match it with a 240mm rad closed loop next time =)

Can't say I have THIS bracket, but I have a similar once and I LOVE it.

Exactly...

An educated guess doesn't equal actual testing.

Since my case will fit I went with single 140mm aio H90s (they were much cheaper than x40's, and performed better in benchmarks)

Waiting for these brackets is killing me.

I have an old dwood bracket on one of my cards right now, but I'm afraid to tighten it anymore to attempt to improve temps. I want my Krakens!

I'm thinking that I won't need to go to 240 or 280 rads once the brackets arrive, but I said I wasn't going to buy anymore hardware this year, and I'm at 6 orders from Newegg already.... so.. yeah tongue.gif

Here is a review using an NZXT X60 with a G10 - http://www.overclex.net/articles/test-du-nzxt-kraken-g10-et-du-kraken-x60/

Temps do look better vs. a single 120mm or 140mm vs. other reviews. Keep in mind his fans were maxed out in the overclocked tests, but even on auto the temps look better. I picked up a Thermaltake Extreme water 2.0 - 240mm - pretty cheap and going to be putting it on my GTX 780 Lightning with some Corsair SP Quiet fans. I will post some results when I get my bracket.

Oh jesus, this makes me think about using x60's now instead... Curse you Face2Face. That's insane that his lightning temps never broke 40c.

Anyone know a case that will fit 2 280mm rads and a 240mm rad? smile.gif

Im pretty sure the Entho Primoo and 900D can house 3 280mm radiators.

Sweet, thanks again! Compared to the legit reviews benchmark its getting about the same temps as the X40 but I assume legit reviews had the fans set to maximum judging by their ~50 dB acoustic testing whereas the X60 was only running at 900rpm, that alone is worth it for me.

the 750d can house a 240/280 on top, 240/280 on front, 240 on bottom. but then u get into the issue of is it enough to only have air intake from the rear and psu??
