Is this what I need to connect a typical 92mm fan on the Kraken to the onboard header?

I think its a 4pin GPU to 3pin/4pin fan adapter..

Thanks, the Gelid version is cheap on ebay; I was just trying to buy from where I want to buy a fan adapter from.

That store is in Hong Kong and it costs £6.33 to ship to UK. Ebay is £0.80 dearer but free shipping.

Cool, I think I have a Gelid one currently...I know I have a second one somewhere...in a box inside another box... thumb.gif

I got a Corsair Air 240 and a micro atx mainboard and somewhere along the line, i willl probably go SLI 980's or Titans. I'm seeing someone says it takes up two and a half slots and that would be a dealbreaker.
Can the front be shaved off a bit or is it the fan/cooling head that is the "thickest" part of the assembly?

While i am at it. I haven't removed the ACX 2.0 unit from the superclocked 980 so i dont know what to expect other than the info i got is that it is based on reference board. Will i need some extra heatsinks?

Cheers!

I have a G10 in my wife's rig and it does take up more than 2 slots. I grabbed 2 of the Pulse Modding ones since they are small but haven't really looked at it closely after installation but it might be the 92mm fan that is making it thicker. I will have to pop open my system to check.

You can see a pic of it here.

Now I don't want to go and buy this G10 not knowing if it will fit my MSI custom PCB

PCB image


Brings me to my other concern.. I bought the HG10 from Corsair because the better reviews on the VRMs etc I notice on the G10 the Memory and VRMs are not covered.. Can I reuse the thermal pads from the stock cooler from MSI?
Or should I also buy new thermal pads? If I was to buy new thermal pads are these easy to remove should I wish to ever sell on and reinstall the stock cooler?


Thanks guys!

You should buy a Gelid R9 290(X) Heatsink Kit. Its like $13 and works incredibly well. Should also work on the custom PCB.

My GPU is currently reaching:

82C [ without the case's cover / 20-25C ambient temp / 60% max fan speed (custom fan settings) / 85C thermal throttle (retail is 79C) ] (Without the case's cover I still think that the GPU hot air is still there, stuck).

85-87C [ with the case's cover / 20-25C ambient temp / 75%+ fan speed (Auto fan settings, really loud) / 89C thermal throttle (retail is 79C) ]

But the real problem is the noise. In summer the ambient temp will be 35C!


I didn't know about "ghetto rigging". But i tried something similar (a Noctua 140mm fan at the front corner pushing air to the GPU, away from the original front slot) and the CM Elite 110's 120mm fan as exhaust fan over the GPU beetween a corner and the PSU) this worked well during the winter....

Please, keep in mind that my GPU only uses 8pins 12V. (Compared to the full versions of Gigabyte's 970s) and I don't OC. That's why i wanted to try the kraken G10, with passive VRM heatsinks etc.
I mean, if my GPU is under 55-60C (with a good AIO WC), do I still need to worry about the VRM and the RAM? (Considering they have copper heatsinks).

What is worse, VRM+RAM+GPU linked by stock heatsink and 90C GPU temp in summer, or, VRM/RAM with copper heatsink (no direct air) and GPU with AIO at 60C? (And no OC).

My default PerfCap Reason (before the thermal throttle begins) is PWR.

I was about to buy a Kraken G10 and cut it in order to use it in my ITX case.


However...Like you said...maybe the best solution is to buy the Evolv ITX case...and wait to replace the GPU for a full length one.

But if I buy the "Evolv ITX" case and the Kraken G10, I will need to use it without a fan, even in futures GPUs. frown.gif

Yea, that is borderline too hot. Passive VRM cooling isn't sufficient. You need airflow over the VRMs. Even as it is now, your card is getting airflow over the VRMs.

I think you should try a larger case first. If that doesn't work, then try reinvesting money into a full size 970. If that still isn't acceptable to you, then the G10 is what you should do.

It does take up about 2.5 Slots. I have seen other people bend the "wing" of the bracket to make it work. You could do that, or cut it off completely.

The EVGA GTX 980 SC w/ ACX 2.0 Cooler has a nice built in mid-plate. You want to keep this midplate as it helps with rigidity, but more importantly VRM temps. In order to keep this mid plate, you will need to buy a copper shim. 20mm x 20mm x 1mm. No extra heatsinks are required, but you can add them if you would like.

I heard the nzxt 92mm fan which comes with the Kraken isn't very good, what is a good upgrade for it? I'll be running it from the GPU fan header so it doesn't need to be quiet at 100%, but not delta loud (which would probably break the fan header too).

I use a Zalman ZM-F2 FDB and find the performance good and it's fairly quiet.

I run Nanoxia FX09s but i never really had any trouble with the NZXT fans.
