Default [LegitReviews]NZXT Announces Kraken G10 Liquid Cooled GPU Mounting Kit





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).

That's a really good idea. Curious to see if it takes off or not.

Dwood @ OCN made similar brackets for a long while to adapt all in ones for videocards. Looked almost identical. Don't feel bad for the design borrowing though since Dwood ended up taking a bunch of money from users then disappeared.

I was just going to say that this looked like Dwoods design, glad I passed up on his items if he skipped town.

I also have to say that somebody needs to test this on an R9 290 or X

*drool*

Awesome. I was looking at GPU waterblocks and stuff the other day just out of curiosity, and it's way beyond my wallet's ability. If this takes off, I could actually consider a fully watercooled system some day in the future!

Dwood was the inspiration for these brackets. We consulted with him during the design phase and got his blessing on it. He also had to step away from doing side projects for personal reasons. Last I heard most if not all the people got refunded if they didn't get the product.
