Yes BUT........... you will need to put a heatsink and fan on the vrms. The vrm cooling for the G10 is on the wrong side of the mount for a GTX 970.

I got a few questions to my fellow g10 users

has anyone here been able to mod their g10 tp become a 2 slot cooler but still retaining the vrm fan?

or maybe been able to do an sli in a matx board(z97m killer or gene vii)?

what asetek designed aio has the slimmest profile for the pump/cold plate?

I currently am using one on my 980, the fan is over the 3rd pci-e slot.. the only way possible that I can see is by using the slimmest profile cold plate/pump and cutting the metal part where the nzxt logo is written for me to fit 2 of these on my board

any thoughts?

^ I'm sure you could mod the bracket. Me personally, I'll be selling my bracket and using a pulse modding bracket with a Noctua NF-A9x14 as the kraken bracket is pretty big in my NCASE M1

The vrms are usually on the back side of the PCB behind the gpu on most of the GTX series. For whatever reason, the vrms for the GTX 970 are on the front side of the PCB, the side where the gpu is secured to the case. Therefore the kraken vrm cooling setup is useless for the 970. You can still use the kraken bracket on the 970, you will just have to rig up your own vrm cooling. Its not a big deal, i successfully used 2 970s in sli with a simple cooling setup on the 970 vrms.

Because pics are worth more, VRMs in red box area
970




The kraken VRM cooling solution will work for the two on the bottom. But to be very clear, i rigged up a cooling solution for 20 bucks that worked fine in addiion to the kraken for a great experience.

Do you reckon you could post a picture or your setup for vm Cooling. Don't feel like you have to, just if you want to.

The 970 ftw has a mid plate so heat sinks likely aren't needed

I dont have pics. I simply mounted a fan to a case blank, in turn with one end mounted to the same screw securing the gpu. a small twist of the metal case blank and it aimed the air right at the vrms. This is the ghetto way. You can also buy spot coolers. Just try and buy a gpu with a heatsink on the VRMs. If it doesnt, you can buy a heatsink kit. none of this is expensive.

Thanks for all the replies

Removing the metal part with the nzxt logo and using nf-a9x14 will allow me to do SLI on a matx board similar to the pulse bracket!

cant wait for the 980 ti and 390x to come out.. so I can score some cheap 980s! =)
