NZXT Kraken™ G10 and Gigabyte 770 GTX 4GB - Will it fit?

post #1 of 163
Thread Starter 
Recently I've been getting more and more tired of my GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 770 OC - 4GB GDDR5 as it is rather noisy, so I've been considering liquid cooling and looked at the NZXT G10 Kraken, but I got rather unsure if it would fit.
So figured I'd try asking in here if it would fit. Can't find any details if any of the components had been moved or anything, so playing it safe by asking in here if it would fit.

Regarding the VRAM I was considering some custom heatsinks.

Does any of the users on this forum have any experience regarding this? If the VRAM would be cooled properly with the custom heatsinks and if the G10 would fit onto the card.

If you have any suggestions for the custom VRAM heatsinks that would also be appreciated.
Had these recommended: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171208461918
According to what I've heard, it should fit.

For the case I have a http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/sniper/ and was considering to go for a Corsair H105 cooler (as that's one of the few 120mm coolers) and as far as I could read it would fit into the case.

Don't have much experience regarding this, so figured this would be the best place to ask as I've found a lot of good solutions in here in the past. Quite happy about the card so replacing it will not be a solution.

Just check that the mounting points that the Kraken G10 uses are the same on the reference PCB and on your 770.
If they are you should be good to go.

Yeah, my primary issue there is that I have absolutely no experience with taking apart the cooling of the GFX from any prior projects of mine, so I'm forced to pretty much make sure that I'm not doing anything wrong before taking my current setup apart.

Been Googling a bit around and haven't had any luck with finding the Gigabyte GFX that I currently use so I could do some comparisons either. Otherwise it would already have been done.

I am actually looking at doing the same exact thing (even the 4gb model) and I think it will work. Judging by these two pictures, Gigabyte being on top and reference being on the bottom, it looks like the mounting holes and vrms line up. The caps and all of that are different, but I'm 95% sure the G10 won't even touch that area. I'm gonna go through with the purchase in a few weeks if you want to use me as a test dummy smile.gif

That would be just perfect mate, I'll wait for that to ensure I don't make any stupid mistakes myself. Thanks a lot (in advance) for the help smile.gif Much appreciated man!

I'll hopefully have the G10 ordered by next week, but I'm not sure how long it'll take to ship. I'll comment back here when I get the bracket in.

Wicked! I'll be looking forward to it mate. Good luck with the build and let's hope it works out.

I'll be ordering my kraken G10 next week. Sorry for the delay, but I have college finals next week and I really haven't had the time to worry about this stuff. I'm sticking to my word though! I promise I'll have it on order by next week!

No problem mate, can see there's quite a bit of wait because they can't keep a proper stock currently (at least in EU). So I didn't expect it to be on time, just looking forward to the result really and I do appreciate that you are giving me a hand this way by showing if it can be done or not. Good luck with the finals mate!

I used copper heatsinks for my memory on the back of the card, I'm sure copper ones for vrms would be fine and fit.

following too!
