Corsair was too cheap to just include one?! So this is ONLY for those who buy the generic nVidia/AMD cooler cards! If you purchased something like EVGA GTX SuperClocked with ACX cooler, then you get no blower-type fan with it and you cannot install HG10!! HAHAHAHA!!! Sorry but this is just super-bad! Maybe its super-bad from my own stupidity of not realizing that sooner, but it just never crossed my mind that I would have to re-use the fan, especially if I don't have one because I didn't buy a generic nVidia/AMD product. Holy moly LMAO... for $40??? This isn't worth $20 if you ask me!

"It flopped before it got popped"
is a perfect saying regarding this newborn product baby called HG10..

Most people that use reference design cards use this cooler. Most custom cards have custom PCBs so this will not work with them.

You just now figured this out? They said they are likely going to offer a replacement blower fan also for those with reference PCB but non reference cooler (which almost always is better than this reference cooler anyway).

Nice instal video, thanks for that. I do have two questions though

The video mentions only screws, shroud and g10 included but the pump when mounted had a metal bracket around it to fasten the pump down, that bracket NOT included right?

When do we to see benchmarks biggrin.gif

You may want to suggest that you power the pump from sata or psu as fan headers may not run full speed unless you set them in bios ....

I can't tell if you're just trolling, if we somehow wronged you in the past, or you just refuse to give this product a benefit of doubt.

We are re-using the fan because we want to retain the fan control properties of the card. We will offer an alternative fan (if users like you would prefer something different). The idea is that we don't want to make anything else required outside of the GPU, the bracket, and whatever hydrocooler you have available to use.

It is true the bracket won't support modified cards that deviate from the reference design but we want to do it the right way of ensuring the video card is cooled properly than to go with a one fit all solution. Honestly though, if you're not happy or for whatever reason do not like this product regardless of our reasoning, that is okay and I totally understand since I'm of the mindset that not everyone may agree with our design philosophy. I just rather you be honest about your vindication against this product than just continuously troll the thread and detract from it.

The bracket is included with the cooler as its the same bracket you use for mounting it onto a CPU. We'll get benchmarks out closer to release when we can reveal more details as we also want others to share their results too. Finally, the Coolit pumps are only powered by SATA or Molex (older coolers). The 1 wire you're using to connect to the header is actually just to report the pump speed, which isn't adjustable anyways. The Asetek pumps will always draw the full power from the header since the pump also isn't adjustable. I do see your concern though with headers that only can manage fan speed through voltage and not PWM, but I think those may be few and far in between these days. I will forward that concern to Dustin though and get the blog updated.

It would be nice to come with a fan to use it with cards like the Tri-x, Twin Frozr and Windforce 290s who have pretty close to reference boards.

So now that this thing is finally coming out, I wanted to know what you guys wanted to see. So far my plan is:

1) Stock cooler, stock fan curve, stock TIM/thermal pads

2) Stock cooler, custom fan curve, aftermarket TIM, aftermarket thermal pads

3) Corsair HG10 w/H100i, stock settings and components

4) Corsair HG10 w/H100i, custom pump curve, aftermarket TIM, aftermarket thermal pads, aftermarket fans

5) Custom loop with appropriate pump, rad and fans

6) Other cooling solutions as applicable depending on if other manufacturers/personnel respond. Richie has indicated he would be interested so props to him.

Load up the card with Unigine Heaven 4.0 in the hot box and let it run while monitor sound, core and VRM temps and FPS with time for 1 hour each at stock clocks. Repeat at a decent overclock sustainable by each cooler. Everything will be in the 380T case I have (hence the reason that build log hasn't been updated in ages- been waiting for this) to simulate a real case experience.

Does this sound ok?

Indeed it was super bad for me not figuring out the blower fan deal, bur now you say you will offer replacement for those with stock PCB but custom coolers. Is that going to cost extra? What about screws? Will there be add ons that make the fan spin or is that an organic function?

Our plan is that if people don't want to use the stock fan from the reference card (or threw it away/lost it for whatever reason), we will offer an alternative fan to work with the bracket and the card. This won't be available from day 1 but is something we're working on incorporating with the design.

I think this is great. Even a simple comparison of stock vs HG10 is great already because performance isn't just about what temperature numbers, it's also about noise. As the custom cooling video card guys already know, having a liquid cooler on a GPU with a near silent SP120 fan to cool the radiator is so much quieter than even the best third party coolers.
