Hey Guys,

First off, I'm kicking myself for not seeing this thread sooner. I've been pondering to go water on my graphics card since I got my 980 TI when it came out, but looked at another brands and saw they were not really compatible with non-reference card, and was all but hopeless. MSI GeForce 980 TI 6GD5T here. Good ambient temps and overclocked. 100% fan speed nets me 75c at full load in newest games (Division, Rainbow Six, Overwatch).

Temperature, Not exactly the issue... 100% Fan speed, *THE* issue. Even with my Over the Ear headphones, it's bad!!!! Well I found this thread, and looked no further. My NZXT Kraken G10 and my Corsair Hydro H90 should be on my door step by the time I get home today smile.gif If I don't mess anything up (will re-watch OP's video as I go through the process) I will share a few pics with you guys!

The H90 was not my first choice, but hopefully a good one. Key reason on purchase decision was fitting in my Cooler Master HAF X. I have a Corsair H105 in push-pull configuration mounted to the top of my case, and was limited in options.

Wish me luck!

Let us know how it goes. The H-90 should work fine for you.

Looks like the MSI card is similar to the 980ti, although it is suppose to suck at overclocking :\

Above Pic: June 2012. Original build: GeForce GTX 285



Above Pic: July 2015. Dual GTX 970's



Above Pic: June 2016. Current build with Kraken G10 added to a GTX 980 TI. I would have loved to do a push-pull, however as you see, the H105 wouldn't allow

Edit: Don't mind the ghetto fan hanging on the right side. That's usually facing the ASUS Sabertooth x79 VRM due to excess heat. The H105 fans cover the VRM so airflow is not good.

Hey guys. I just bought a 1080 and want to mount the krakent g10 on it. Does anyone know where I can find heatsinks for the vrm that will stick on? Some guy posted here but didn't say where he bought it or what size.
post #5465 of 6454
So I this is my first post, and I apologize if this isn't in the right area, but throughout my search for a waterblock for my MSI R9 390 I came across the Kraken G10 and have heard great things about it. With both of my monitors running and playing Witcher 3, my card was hitting ~92 degrees. Out of curiosity, I messaged NZXT about the compatibility for my card and their response was "...it does look like it CAN fit but you might need some copper shims for the die connecting to the cooler along with some heatsinks to passively cool all the VRAMs that are closer to the ports" I guess my questions are, does anyone have this same card and a Kraken G10? Where do I put the heatsinks and shims?

The midplate on that card must sit a little higher than the level of the GPU die. The shims will go on the GPU die so that the cold plate of the pump makes contact with it. The heat sinks for VRAM simply go on the VRAM chips. If you want to post a picture of the card without the cooler, someone will be happy to show you where the vram chips are.

Did they say VRAM or VRMs? You need to make sure that the VRMs have a heatsink as well. This is much more important than making sure the VRAM has heatsinks.

I am still trying to find alternative nuts. The bolts that attach the bracket to the PCB seem to be in between M2 and M3 in diameter. So neither the M2 or M3 nuts seemed to work.
post #5468 of 6454
Maybe i missed it, but why do you need alternative nuts?

I lost one of mine and I'm concerned about waiting for a replacement, but also it'd be nice to have something with a bit less height so that the pump housing doesn't have to be removed on some Corsair coolers.

This isn't my personal card, but this is essentially the PCB for my card. And they did just say VRAM, but if I may (one more time) where are the VRMs? Thank you so much for the explanations.
