Did you have to get different hardware?

I just tried my 980ti sc tonight. Removed the pad on the kraken plate and had a shim on the die.....No go. Could not get a thread at all (front plate and back plate). Any ideas?

Trim down or take off the foam spacer that's on the bottom side of the G10 fan. It's too thick to provide clean contact on a card with a midplate.

What I did was I took the midplate off and put the foam (sliced it to half the thickness) inbetween the board and midplate.

This helped my card not bend and bow. It also helped apply more pressure on the chip and heatsink/pump.

My temperatures weren't that good, at 65C, till I adjusted the mount. They were 55C afterwards with better contact.

I didn't use any of the (2) foam pieces that are recommended for "easier install". I also didn't use the foam on the NZXT backplate. If that still doesn't give you contact, order some of this stuff:

screws: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F33LFTE/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00F33LFTE&linkCode=as2&tag=byogamingpc-20&linkId=KZNHHQFXAAPCPRV4
washers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O41NJWC/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00O41NJWC&linkCode=as2&tag=byogamingpc-20&linkId=IWSH32GAWPIDXBMU
finishing washers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005E3Q7H8/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B005E3Q7H8&linkCode=as2&tag=byogamingpc-20&linkId=KIRZIG7AXUPSNBIQ

edit: I'm sure those are available in smaller quantities at a local hardware store.

Found those on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=249&v=RlGMhASE22w showing someone that installed the G10 on a card with a large stock backplate.

Good luck!

Gonna take a stab at it tonight, hopefully it goes smooth. I still have my 10g "tub" of Gelid GC-e paste ready for service thumb.gif

I tried the antec 920, but i may have to apply more pressure....moving forward, I also have an h75, which is now connected. Still have to test, but gotta run to the store.

If the 920 doesn't work, i can try my thermaltake extreme....which is connected to my cpu atm.


EDIT: Ran Firestrike Extreme for about an hour. Max temps were 58C. This is w/ an open case (air 540), wide open case. Once I get my second card running, I will report back w/ pics and closed case temps.

I ordered the screw's and finishing washers. I think I will reuse the washers from the g10 to replace the insulation washers.

Do you guys think the Kraken G10 will fit on Powercolor HD 7870 Myst? Also, is the Corsair H55 strong enough for most cards? I only upgrade my GPU once every 3 years :tongue.gif:

i have been using it with no heatsinks or any sort of cooling for the VRM's and VRAM(besides the 80mm fan for the VRM's)

Dont put the NZXT backplate when you are installing your cooler
