Yes, but you will need to purchase a copper shim to ensure good contact between the gpu and AIO.

yep I ordered 3 of those 7970 copper shims, i figured about 2 stacked on each other with thermal paste in between should do the trick, got the 3rd one in case it does take 3.

Nice one, thank your for the UK link!

Another question: What about cooling the vrms and ram modules? Also will this take a universal water block?

Nr.1, 2 and 3 builds a closed air circuit itself.

in Video Part 2:



good: In this exampe it`s quiet better that he twisted the radiator (Nr4.) to blow out the hot air via the frontside of the case but

bad: The rest of the setup is against thermal laws.

I He used the top backside fan (Nr.2) as the only intake fan. This fresh air is going the direct way out via the top fan/radiator combo (Nr.1)

II Think about that hot air always goes from bottom to top.

III 3x air out and only 1x fresh air in.

Optimal would be:



I Swap Radiator (Nr.4) with the upper intake fan (Nr.3)

II After that the hot air of the radiator (Nr.4.) is out of the case smile.gif + fresh air goes the way directly on the gpu/mosfets/vram and would be pushed out via the exhaust fan (Nr.2) on the top backside and goes thru the radiator of the cpu (Nr.1)

III Optional: another intake fan on the sidepanel which aims on the Kraken G10.

Pressure should be fine. Even you should think about the push/pull configuration on the thin Kraken raditor. Push only should be sufficient. If it would be a massive/thick radiator than push/pull is fine and stands in °C/$-relation .
In most cases push will have the better °C gain compared to pull. So you can use the saved fan money to get some nice copper Mosfet/VRam coolers.


I bought the same fan for the G10, let me know how it works wink.gif
Greetings from Germany

I just installed the CG/PWM adapter - from artic cooling.

It works very good with the Be Quiet Shadow wing. I use Trixx with a custom curve to control it.



The trick is, 10 minutes with valley, and my VRM reach 84°C!

No doubt I need to find a solution before applying any OC ... redface.gif

I wouldn't make a single complaint if it didn't even come with a fan, much less VRM/VRAM heatsinks or a fan adapter.

I see a lot of people losing sight of the major selling point of this product; THAT IT'S UNIVERSALl! heatsinks would not be an economical inclusion for several reasons..

A) different card have different numbers of RAM modules - some people would have extra (which is money wasted), some people would have too few (which people would undoubtedly complain about)
B) perhaps this would be asking a bit too much from a rather easily-assumed "non-PC modder". remember that this product is specifically designed with the type of consumer who wants water-cooling, just without the in-depth custom modification, in mind
C) gluing or adhering heatsinks to components, in many cases, is a permanent installation. this would likely be a bold presumption for a third-party manufacturer to expect consumers to entirely void their warranties and all but eliminate the resale value of their card in order to use their (in this case, NZXT) product.

You really hit the nail on the head JChap. Thanks

i only ment it in a good way..i know the goal behind this g10..i was at that point of post reading all other peeps posts and on other sites ..and was curious on why they didnt atleast include a proper mini vga to pwm fan connector..it would make it even more universal than it already is..and maybe include a better fan than the white..easy to brake fan included..
no need to go all bananas on me bro/ho..
im still waiting on importers to rpl if they can get this for me..and just from reading all the amazing peeps info here in ocn..theres alot of room for improvement..the 1st i would say is the weight and thickness..it looks very heavy to me..2nd..vga fan adapter..3rd ..low profile vrm copper heatsinks..even if this extras added 5 - 15/20 bucks extra to final price..itll make it more worth it..more U.N.I.V.E.R.S.A.L


X-Predator and everyone else asking about why we didn't include this or that please re-read this.

And our goal was to offer the kit at a price that can appeal to all levels of builders.

You can think of it as something like a case included with a smartphone. Yes, the case will protect the phone and it will certainly be useful to some, but it also adds cost to the phone and not everybody who purchases the phone will find a use for it. Some people might want to use a different type of case, and others might not want to use a case at all.

i just noticed on the site that the 2nd batch says
"Orders between Dec. 12-16"
so the second batch is only for people that ordered in that 4 day window? I ordered mine on the 4th of this month. so im part of the 3rd batch?

Probably not 2nd batch is said to ship close to the 20th give or take a few days.

So I don't see the third batch being shipped this month

So even at 100% fan speed it's not possible to cool down the "naked" VRM?
Oh, that's way to hot for my taste. While it's still in the specification but it makes sence to go with some passive VRM/Mosfet coolers.
Use someThermally Conductive Adhesive Tapes. In comparison to thermal compound you will be able to remove them easily and reuse the passive coolers for further gpu projects. Bear in mind to clean the VRM's, there shouldn't be any fat (p. ex. fingertips) or remainings of alcohol cleaner left otherwise the VRM coolers will not stay in place properly. You have to press the passive coolers with some force. If they are in place don't touch them again.
The tape must stay only on the VRM/Mosfet surface and shall not touch any other parts. Danger of short circuit!

hint:
I I would recommend to use Evga Precision X or MSI Afterburner instead of TriXX to set a custom curve for the 92mm fan.
It also will give you more details about the other specs going on and you can OC your card like as usual.
II Have a look, could be useful:
http://www.amazon.com/ArctiClean-60ml-Kit-30ml/dp/B0007TOR08/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389785840&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=arctic+silver+arctilean

Am i right that you are using Kraken Control via usb header to set up the curve for the radiator-fan (140mm)?

@xD3aDPooLx: Am i allowed to lower the pump speed via fancontroller 7V/5V instead of 12V to reach a better noise level? - with regard to warranty terms...
