Increase GPU cooling performance by 40% with the new Kraken G10*


Quote:
With rapid developments in the world of all-in-one liquid cooling, CPU cooling has become simple, cost-effective and most importantly, powerful. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for aftermarket GPU cooling. At least not until now.
The Kraken G10 is designed to finally bring high performance, cost-effective cooling to the GPU by incorporating existing all-in-one liquid cooling technology to a majority of modern video cards, regardless of chipset or manufacturer.
Made entirely of steel, the Kraken G10 bracket allows users to mount NZXT Kraken coolers as well as non-NZXT brand liquid coolers to their GPU with ease. (See compatibility list for compatible coolers) Included with the bracket is a 92mm fan used to cool the VRM and other video card components.
Combined with the high performance abilities of the Kraken cooler, the Kraken G10 offers over 40% cooling increases over stock coolers*, a level of performance that is traditionally only achievable with a costly custom liquid cooled setup. Combined with Nvidia's GPU Boost 2.0 or AMD's PowerTune, Kraken G10 equipped video cards can perform cooler and faster than ever.
The Kraken G10 also includes zip-tie points to hide tubing behind its slick exterior, ensuring your video card looks just as amazing as it performs. Available now for just $29.99, the Kraken G10 comes in black, white or red and can be purchased directly from the NZXT armory store.
*Internal testing performed using a Kraken X40 cooler and Nvidia GTX-780 reference cooler (cooling performance will vary depending on cooler and video card).

I'm interested also. If it can cool a R9 290X I may have to get one.

Finaly something made for people like me.

Lazy, interested in water cooling but scared as hell, someone who can't justify $700 of water cooling parts

In other words, it was about time to have something that works out the box with GPU's. Maybe it's not the first, but I'll sure look into it.

Does not talk about bracket compatibility...

Does this work with an r9 290?

I have done the mod for my 7870 XT (Ghetto style) but i would like a better product for my new r9 290...
Nvidia : GTX 780, 770, 760, Titan, 680, 670, 660Ti, 580, 570, 560Ti, 560, 560SE
AMD : R9 290X, 270X HD7870, 7850, 6970, 6950, 6870, 6850, 6790, 6770, 5870, 5850, 5830
The compatibility list is based on AMD Radeon and NVIDIA's reference board layout only. Please check the height restriction drawing before purchase

I think they forgot 290 non x

Which are you confirming?

it will be compatible with other aftermarket fans?

or

it will have proprietary fans?

If it works on a 290x it should, by all intents and purposes, work on a 290. From what I understand, and someone can step in correct me, is that the 290 and 290x share the same exact board. I read on another site this was already available and priced at $29.99. That sounds like an awfully good deal for an AIO WC GPU cooler.

Good job NZXT!!! There are seriously 87 different (but not that different) AIO cpu coolers out there, we need more manufactuers broadening their spectrum into other areas! Interested to see how the corsairs and antecs respond, GPU cooling is a market that needs a boost!

You will have to buy a clc to mount with it.

The 29.99 is purely for the bracket + 92mm Fan.

Yup, just realized that. Makes this announcement way less exciting.

Pretty cool that companies are showing interest in this, but at the same time $30 USD for a bracket wowzers. Can be gotten from an OCN vendor for likely cheaper, lol

it will be compatible with other aftermarket fans, as you can see in the image it has screws which can be removed for adding another fan
