5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bracket!

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU 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.

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

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.

5 out of 5 eggsThanks NZXT!

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: So far I have not been able to get my EVGA GTX-670 4 gig FTW over 45 C at full load in BF4. All my other games run around 38 C. The best part and most important thing is that my computer no longer sounds like a jet engine. That alone was worth the $95 and a lot of effort to me. Thankfully I was able to keep my back plate on the card during installation. I paired the G10 with the Corsair H55 and am quite happy with the results. I would buy this again!

Cons: As some have said it is difficult to install but I really don't mind, I like a challenge! ;-) And since there really isn't a better option out there I can't discount an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: I am really glad someone came up with this solution! For the life of me I can't understand why the dragging of the feet when it comes to GPU cooling. After years of plug and play CPU cooling there is finally someone that took the challenge! I hope this opens the door to some more creative and versitile options down the road. It can only get better, I hope?

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job well

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: This does very well at the job it performs. The instructions aren't terribly detailed, but if youtube is definitely a thing that exists. Had to lop off an egg because one of my spacers was malformed, and would not go onto the screw. Luckily, I had spares that fit fine - it would have sucked to wait on an RMA over such a little part.

Cons: Spacer was malformed

Other Thoughts: I paired this with the corsair h50 and my EVGA gtx 970 - it works beautifully. I idle around 27c, go up to around 43c under load.

3 out of 5 eggsA good idea, but flawed for overclocking.

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Limited my MSI 780 ti to 62 degrees C while at full load with corsair H55 and two Noctua fans in push/pull configuration. Temps were 76 degrees C with the air cooler.

Cons: Core and memory clocks were not able to be increased beyond the levels offered by the stock air cooler, despite the 14 degree reduction in max. temperature. I believe this is due to inadequate VRM cooling, although I never measured them.

Other Thoughts: After trying this, I purchased Swiftech's H-240X expandable AIO cooler, and a Koolance waterblock for my card. With the chip and the VRM being cooled, I gained +50 MHz on the core, and +125 MHz on the memory of the GPU, while max temp under load was reduced to 52 degrees C. All of this without adjusting the voltage on the card. This is a much better solution in my opinion.

4 out of 5 eggsNot user friendly but does the job

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: This thing does exactly what it was designed to do. Hold the water block to the GPU

Cons: Not user friendly. As said in previous reviews the paint is a little thick and getting those thin screws to hold the back plate to the cooling block is going to take time and effort.

Other Thoughts: 1) take the long screws that hold the water block to the back plate and seat them in the main plate holes. All of them... put them in and out prior to trying to assemble this thing.

2) The back plate, the GPU the front plate and the water block are all unsecured until those 4 screws are in. It is certainly a slippery sandwich. Invest in a second set of hands to get it done.

In all it took about 2 hrs to do the assembly for the card + waterblock + the G10. Instillation is a different topic. If you have the patience and an exctra set of hands to hold the thing steady you'll be just fine.

2 out of 5 eggsComplex for no reason

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: If you even care, it's cool to be able to get your GPU to cooler temps then the reference cooler can provide. It's also nice having multiple NZXT parts in your build (i have a few).

Cons: Now, although I think NZXT makes amazing cases, accessories and PSU's, I can't say i enjoyed this cooler. It took me a real long time to get it onto the GPU properly after reading the instructions and watching youtube videos. Once i finally popped it into my build, I couldn't even get my machine to boot up. I made sure everything was connected and fastened properly, made sure the cooler and fans were working but still nothing. The cooler was working, but my computer wouldn't boot. So now it's in a box taking up space in my room because returning it back to newegg isn't worth the restocking fee.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply apologize and it’s very strange to hear that your system would not boot up with the Kraken G10 Installed. Was the system still powered on fans spinning and all or was it completely off and no power was being received to the system in turn? We just want to make sure there wasn’t a ground within the case keeping the system from booting. Also it could be that the video connection to your GPU was loose cutting the signal to your monitor. None the less we are here to help you if you would just visit our website at www.nzxt.com/support/ . Once there all you would need to do is submit a request at the top right in detail giving up the description of the issue and the product itself,Once submitted it will enter into our ticketing system. You can also contact us at 1-800-228-9395 at which we will be able to proceed forward with some more trouble shooting tips.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

1 out of 5 eggsSimply doesn't work

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: I heard when it works it keeps a graphics card cool

Cons: The install was the biggest pain I've ever had, and I've done custom water cooling before.
I can see my H90 copper baseplate firmly attached and the temperatures still SKYROCKET to 60 degrees under ZERO load. Upon any load, it goes up to 80 degrees and I have to shut it down before my card overheats.

Other Thoughts: I want to submit a ticket or claim and NZXT seems to not like me entering the correct captcha phrases so I can't even do that. I reinstalled the stock cooler on my GTX 680 and it was back again to regular temps. I reinstalled the G10 and again the temperatures were out of control high. Even putting a copper shim, thinking there might be something holding the baseplate back, into the fray didn't help matters. NZXT support is no where to be found and this is my second and frankly last NZXT product I will ever buy or recommend. DO NOT GET THIS. Custom watercool or leave it alone...and to be frank...leaving it alone is probably best.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Solid, good looking, strong rigid and good looking back plate, easy to install. Just get the bolts through the correct holes in the back plate and through the card, lay the card on a solid flat surface and the bolts with stay in place, just lower the pump and bracket on to the bolts and mount it. Very easy.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am loving this thing. Easy way to water cool my GPU. I joke that it is funny how I have air cooled CPU (Phanteks PH-TC14PE) and a water cooled GPU, most are the other way. But really, it is cost effective as it can be moved to the next GPU.
