Kraken G10 vs accelero extreme iii vs windforce vs ACX cooler

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
kraken g10 released recently, which cooling do you think is better? the g10 is a closed liquid cooling for gpu's

wondering what is a better solution for gpus, i want to buy a new gpu soon and figured i might change the cooler on a new evga gpu

OP go for a EVGA CLASSIFIED. be it a GTX 770 or GTX 780. the cooler is top notch. the classified card has a very high PCB quality and overclockability.

i think nzxt g10 has bad vram cooling, without those mini heatsinks, you ram will probably run hot,

for air coolers why won't you also consider msi twin frozr and asus direct cu ii ?

ya you need tubing and a radiator, reservoir and all that plus a liquid coolant to run otherwise just sticking the card in like that, bound to overheat

honestly i wish somebody did a install video for custom loop but most simplified to custom loop only the gpu, if that even exists, i dunno w/e

The accelero extreme coolers are great for GTX 5xx or lower type cards. I still have one strapped to my GTX 580.

The G10 / Accelero hybrid are okay assuming you heatsink the VRams and power circuits. I had a hybrid on my 580 and it was okay... not earth shattering but just okay. Ive gone back to the accelero cooler.

For the newer cards with Boost 2, you can now limit either power or temperature maximums, so out of the box, they are great.

If you want to go balls to the wall with the newer cards - go custom water.

I'm also interested in this thread, any other ideas?

And where do I buy the Accelero Hybrid Cooler nowadays? It's all out of stock everywhere!
