If someone wished to start modifying the basic setup of a simple bracket and cheap AIO, they really should consider going ahead and going with a custom loop.Just my opinion.
Most people see temps well into the 40s while gaming and mid 50s C with any out of the box AIO. These numbers are more than adequate for excellent OC potential on modern GPUs and can be accomplished for ~100 bucks.
no offense, pascal is too senstive to temperature so the temp should be as low as possible, although ~50mhz reduction in gpu clock may be insignificant to actual gaming experiences. arctic gpu hybrid aio is another solution providing much better result with similar cost.
nzxt g10 bracket is extremely expensive, my last aio costs even less then the price of nzxt g10, still work like a charm. (id cooling is going to introduce another gpu aio 360mm cooling and id cooling=cheap price)
i hope nzxt would lower the price of g10 and introduce 2nd version of the g10 improving vram and vrm cooling and the quality of those screws and other aio compatibility (at least for those corsair new gen aio). nzxt aio is much better than corsair one as i found that longer aio tube is very important. nxzt should sell these bundles.
the price differential between evga ftw and evga ftw hybrid is just $40 usd.......Edited by asdkj1740 - 10/2/16 at 9:14am
