  • 40% increase in cooling capacity over stock coolers decreases wasted power and temperatures across your card.
  • Our universal block allows any liquid cooler that shares the same mounting as the Kraken Series to attach to your GRP with ease.
  • 92mm fan included for active VRM cooling, while adequate space is provided for aftermarket VRM heatsinks to be installed.
  • Compatible with over 24 different reference GPUs and more than 19 AiO cooling solutions, you have the power of choice to roll your own cooling solution.


With an included 92mm fan to cool the VRM and the high performance abilities of the Kraken cooler, the Kraken G10 offers over 40% cooling increases over the GPU's stock cooler, a level of performance only previously achievable with a costly custom liquid cooled setup.



The Kraken G10 features wide compatibility for over 42 different reference graphics cards and more than 30 different all-in-one liquid cooling solutions, nearly guaranteeing compatibility with your personal GPU.



Included with the Kraken G10 is a 92mm fan specially designed to cool Nvidia and AMD based VRM modules. The bracket was also designed with enough clearance to properly mount supplemental VRM sinks if you decide to take things up a notch and over-volt the GPU.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Product

Pros: -Fits ASUS R9 280X perfectly (along with others I'm sure
-Additional fan helps cool the other GPU components that the heat sink doesn't touch
-Using an H110 or H105 I believe (one is GPU and one is CPU... I have a huge case and the radiators are mounted on the side panel).
-Since 3 loud fans are now gone, the noise level went down

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: Reported VRAM heating issues, voltage, etc, led me to buy this to try to resolve the artifacting issues that my GPU faces. It runs very cool... in the low 30s C. Helps with the overclocking potential. Not relevant for this review, but the issue was a combination of heat, VBIOS needing updated, and matching with very specific drivers. I had luck with non-crimson ones on Win 7 64 bit, and Omega 14.12 Drivers on Win 10 64-bit (13.x, 15.2x, 15.7x Catalyst, and the drivers from ASUS's website all did not work)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great - if you pay attention!

Pros: Works really well. Fits the cooler to the card, instructions are pretty simple. Looks really good - I got the white bracket to match my white case with white cabling. It's a cool combo with UV lights :)

I have this on an AMD 7950, 29c idle and 51 under load (Furmark extreme for 3 hours, never broke 51c).

Cons: There are no stops on the screws to mount the cooler to the GPU, so if you aren't paying attention, you WILL over-tighten the screws and bend your PCB! A little bend is ok - but make sure you pay attention!

Other Thoughts: Don't match this to a Corsair cooler - their pipes are way too short. I barely reach the front intake fan port on my smaller-than-average mid-tower case. "Why don't you put it on the rear fan port?" Because that's where the CPU radiator goes, of course!

If you match this to an AMD card, MAKE SURE you are aware of the GPU die and whether or not you need a copper shim, like I did. more information about this is on the manufacturer's website, NZXT.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't keep 970 Cool

Pros: The G10 gets plenty of style points, and in all honesty mounted without too much hassle on my EVGA 970 (just the expected struggles of setting everything up and pushing long screws through small holes without smearing the thermal compound). It even did a remarkable job of keeping the GPU cool with an H50.

Cons: Although the GPU stayed plenty cool, the fan didn't cool the VRM on my 970, it is on the wrong side of the GPU. I put heat sinks on and tried a couple of things with extra fans, but ultimately after 5-10 minutes of Witcher 3 on recommended NVIDIA settings my computer crashed. I grabbed an infrared thermometer and stressed my card a few more times. Turned out parts of the card were nearly reaching 100C causing the card to shut down before damage. I have since taken this off and replaced it with the stock cooler.

Other Thoughts: I'm not necessarily disappointed with this product, and I will probably put it on another card in the future, but I wouldn't recommend this for a 970 from my experience.

5 out of 5 eggsGodly piece of hardware!

Pros: The NZXT bracket works well with my EVGA 780 and is easy to buy unlike the HG10 N780 witch is a Corsair paper release.

Paired with an H55 this bracket keeps my GTX 780 under 50C at full load!

Cons: Not the easiest install... I had to make a copper shim for my card out of an old heat sink and the screws barely had enough thread with the shim in place...

Other Thoughts: I wanted the Corsair solution but after three months of them telling us next month I finally caved and got this bracket and I was not disappointed

This bracket works great with the EVGA 780 as the EVGA 780 comes with an internal heat sink that keep things cool and also adds strength to the PCB so it doesn't bend/warp... I Just needed a copper shim so that the H55 could make contact and allow me to keep the internal heat sink that EVGA installed! Good Job EVGA and NZXT!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Love the fact that I can watercool a card that doesn't brackets made for it anymore
-Keeps the temperatures at least -10C cooler, which is outstanding!
-Has a very sleek design
-Fairly easy to install
- Is a very inexpensive way to get a decent watercooled graphics card

Cons: - It was fairly heavy
- when fully installed, it didn't leave any space for any other PCI devices below it. (My board is a Mini ATX, so there wasn't another slot to use that was compatible with my USB 3.0 card that sits below)
- Like others have stated, the paint is a bit to thick on it so it took a little grinding and wearing on the holes where the screws would go to mount the backplate and body of the actual Bracket together. (I didn't think this was a huge problem however)

Other Thoughts: So I used this and the Corsair H50 watercooler to cool my HD6850 and it has done a fantastic job. However, I don't use it now because the H50 was becoming very problematic. It's tubing wasn't very flexible and it kinked very easily so it defeated the purpose. I will use it again, just maybe in a different build. The only thing that I would've wanted different about this, would've been to be able to get it in black. But other than that it is totally outstanding and I would recommend this to anyone. I reduced an egg only for how much space it took on my motherboard because I would've liked to have been able to use the only USB 3.0 I can get right now. (until I can upgrade again)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Idea, but crude

Pros: - It does work. Tamed my R9 280, which was throttling pretty badly and flooding my ITX case with a ton of residual heat.

- Manged to shoehorn this setup into a CoolerMaster Elite 130 ITX case. Barely. Piped one water line up and over, one under and along the edge of the MB.

-It's much quieter than the stock cooler, which ran pretty much wide open (obnoxiously loud) after a minute of gaming.

Cons: -Severely lacking in the the RAM cooling dept. You will want to pick up some aluminum heat sinks.

-As mentioned by others, those with AMD cards beware... the inner most post holes are rough.

Other Thoughts: -Honestly, this is the easiest solution for those of us who want to quiet things down and control the temps.

-I can tell it works, playing DA:I I'm blasting tons of heat out from the radiator.

Relevant parts of my setup:
Cougar 120mm pulling at front (expels air outward)
Corsair H50 behind the front fan (fits to GPU)
Corsair H55 behind the H50 (fits to CPU, an i3)
Cougar 120mm pushing (draws in from case)

I know I'm defying conventional wisdom by pulling at the front (and stacking coolers), but with what little I've seen this arrangement is working wonders. Case temps are down (at least) 7-10 Centigrade, GPU never throttles.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bracket!

Pros: Using this in conjunction with a HD7870 and a Kuhler H20 620. Lowered my max gaming temp in BF4 by an astonishing 32 degrees Celsius. Idle and normal use is down by about 15 degrees C.

-Keeps the card cool
-All metal design
-Installation was easy (if I can do it, you can do it)
-Price was right

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: When I first installed it i thought I wasn't getting good contact between the GPU and the cooler due to the NZXT kraken mount. I was having to clean off thermal paste and try again and again and again. I finally gave up and decided to see how it did with what I thought was bad contact... turns out I just don't really know what good surface contact is! It works just great!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for what you need it for.

Pros: It was pretty easy to install overall. If you look around you will see that people with AMD cards will have a little trouble connecting the back bracket to the cooler and you will. I currently have a 7870 and it was a little tricky putting it on. I also found that the 92mm fan hangs out over the card because the way the 7870 is set up, the whole bracket is actually longer and sticks out a bit but that's not a problem.

Cons: Like I said above it was a little hard to get one. For the AMD cards you need to fit the screws through the A holes i believe and sometimes they aren't cut out very well. I got lucky and i only had to make 1 of the holes a little bigger with the prong from a fork. But other than that there are no cons.

Other Thoughts: Could use an extra pair of hands to install.
