Kraken™ G10 GPU Bracket

The liquid cooling solution for your video card has finally arrived.

Kraken™ G10

If there's one desire every gamer, enthusiast and builder should have in common, it's the need for a cooler system. With the growth of the all-in-one liquid cooler, CPU cooling has become simple, cost-friendly and most importantly, efficient. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for 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 video cards, regardless of chipset or manufacturer.

The steel Kraken G10 bracket allows users to mount the NZXT Kraken coolers as well as non-NZXT brand liquid coolers to their GPU with ease. (See compatibility list for compatible coolers) 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 stock coolers*, a level of performance only previously achievable with a costly custom liquid cooled setup.

*Tests performed using a Kraken X40 and stock GTX-780

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for Price

Pros: Keeps my card much cooler, < 38c idle. Looks great and fit as described. Runs great with an H55 Corsair Cooler.

Cons: I would give this 5 eggs but this was not 2 min worth of work. the mounting screws would not lock as needed and required some creative crafting.

1 out of 1 people found this review helpful. Did you? Yes No

3 out of 5 eggsDecent if modified

Pros: Fitted this onto an EVGA GTX 660Ti

-Allows me to attach my Corsair H55 which lowers my idle temp to 26°C and my temps under full load never get over 36°C with my pump running about 30%. See other thoughts.

-Simple design and construction.

Cons: -Only compatible with certain cards.

-Included fan is very sub-par. Cheap, loud, and doesn't move a lot of air.

-A bit pricey for what you get. 30 bucks plus S&H seems a bit high.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am happy with this purchase. The bracket did not exactly fit my 660 Ti, and the VRAM fan suspended over the back of the card, cooling nothing. This also left VRAM uncooled. To work around these, I decided to simply cut the bracket in half and only use the water pump block. This worked spectacularly and my GPU temps never get into the 40 degree ranges.

To deal with the VRAM cooling, I purchased an 80mm case fan from Thermaltake model AF0043 which is a very very quiet fan for its size, and has good longevity. I attached it to the card directly over the VRAM with some clever plastic stand-offs and zip ties. I have a thermal sensor right on my VRAM and idle temps hover about 28°C and again never go into the 40s.

All in all I probably over paid for what this bracket really does, and could have saved a few bucks if they would release a product that does not include the useless fan and instead just had the cooler backplate. I am happy with the results. Near-Room Temperature and more quiet than my refridgerator in the other room.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We appreciate the feedback on our kraken g10 cooling unit. The kraken g10 is compatible with a variety of cards with the reference design layout for both NVidia GPU’s and AMD. As for the fan it is a 92 mm fan that is offered with the fan itself which can be changed out with an 80 mm fan. If at all any of the parts do break over time or you need replacement assistance. Please visit at the top right you will see a submit request button. Also we would need an invoice from the place of purchase for the unit. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to call us at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap bracket

Pros: Pros- Allows you to attach watercooler to GPU....
Paint finish was good
not a flimsy peice

Cons: There is really only 2 cons with this product..

As reported by MANY other people, the quality control for this product is low... example....

All of the screw holes in the bracket are the correct size..before nzxt paints the piece...

Once it is painted (and apparently not quality/sized checked afterwards)... the paint makes the hole too small to fithe supplied screws.
This requires you to try and drill the holes out and make sure they are the correct size. Very silly that they would overlook this... I would rather pay $5-10 more than sit here and have to mess with the bracket just to things to fit.

Vram cooling- This has been talked about quite a bit.. but it is safe to say that for most V cards... it is a good idea to buy some cheap small heatsinks and put them on the vram. The small, slow and cheap fan they provide for Vram coolingis pathetic. Nzxt claims the supplied fan is enough... but they also claim that everything should fit...which it doesnt..

Just keep that in mind.

Other Thoughts: Overall.... its a nice piece.. it just has its small flaws..low quality

The idea is quite simple... im surprised other manufacturers haven't gotten involved in this..

It works.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, if you know what to expect

Pros: Dropped my typical max temps to ~61 C, even when hammering the GPU with ENB-enabled Skyrim, or Crysis 3 at max everything.

Cons: I have no gripe with the bracket itself. Its simple, and works as intended. The VRM cooling leaves much to be desired, and this is where research is so important. Check if your card has VRM heatsinks already. Mine did. If not, do some Googling and find some for your particular card.

Purchase RAM heatsinks for your card. They're not entirely cheap, but they will really help keep those components cool. I went from having artifacts at a mild overclock, to no issues and low temps with 100mhz over stock with heatsinks.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this along with a PowerColor 290x. The card, even with PowerColor's admittedly very good cooler, was a loud space heater.

I did my research, and also bought some RAM heatsinks for the card. My video card already came with VRM heatsinks, but if your card does not, I strongly recommend purchasing some!!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little bracket

Pros: The liquid cooler it helped mount stopped my reference Radeon R9 290x from sounding like a leaf blower and throttling down.

Cons: The paint inside the holes for AMD cards needs to be scraped off before the screws can pass through

Installation instructions are mediocre at best

The L shape of the bracket makes removing the power connectors difficult

Other Thoughts: A word of caution: if you're using this with a Corsair H105/H75 you'll either need to trim down the thumbscrews or find some compatible nuts as the unaltered thumbscrews wont clear the notches in Corsair's pump cover design.

5 out of 5 eggsG10

Pros: easy to install. instructions were simple to follow.

Cons: wish nzxt would add brackets for gpu back plate.

Other Thoughts: Installed to a EVGA GTX 680 FTW LE 4GB w/ backplate. Replace stock fan for antec tri cool 92. Installed G10 with Corsair H90 and also replace and add a second fan. Replace stock fan with two bgear b-PWM140 blue led fans.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Easy installation, works with most closed loop coolers. Kind of stylish on the card. Fit's most cards and works as a mounting bracket. Who would have guessed

Cons: Fan can't keep VRM cool to save it's life.
Mounting plate is a bit bendy.

Other Thoughts: I've put 2 of these on my GTX 770's, I've paired them with a H55. Yeah temps are better high 20's idle and high 40's to low 50's under full load. Beats the 80'c they used to get, keep in mind they are sli'd though so it was only the top card getting that hot.

My cards happen to come with a full metal plate that ran under the shroud of the stock cooler. It's touching all the vrm's etc. So it's acting as a heat sink and because of that I don't have to worry too much about it over heating. However after putting this cooler on, I am getting coil wining. That's annoying more than anything. Watch out for high VRM temps though.

If you over tighten the mounting plate from your card to your cooler, you will bend the frame making it so that your cooler doesn't sit flat on your gpu, so don't over tighten. Yes I was tightening in the X pattern. The end closest to the I/O of the card doesn't have much support. There's 2 form spaces that come with but I had to use those on the back of the card to it didn't smash the heck out of my 2 8pin connectors. Even now idk how i'll ever unplug my PCI-e connectors. The clips are sooo tight against the bracket . I couldn't get a flat head in there if I wanted to.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: - affordable
- installing is straight forward
- works with a number of Asetek AIO's
- Installed without a problem on my Asus DCU2 R9 290
- drops temperatures by an unbelievable amount

Cons: - Not designed for novice users
- Need 3 hands to assemble onto graphic card
- only air cools the VRM's (voltage regulator modules). preferable if there is some kind of heat sink on them.
- can be overtightened and damage pcb if installer is careless
- not really a con, but you also need to have a compatible AIO liquid cooler
- AMD mounting screw holes might need to be reemed out with something, the painters are somewhat overzealous and sometimes get paint into the AMD screw holes which dries and makes the hole too small. I had to scrape paint out of one of the holes for mine so the mounting screw would go through.

Other Thoughts: The Kraken G10 lets you water cool your graphic card for a low price compared to a custom water loop and plate, and compatibility is pretty good. My DCU2 R9 290 was a furnace, so I said to heck with it and bought the G10 and a Corsair H50, and sure enough it fit onto my 290 without having to remove the backplate, and my card already had a VRM heat sink so no problemo.

This is probably one of the most ghetto products I've ever used in a computer, and it looks and performs awesome. it even lowered the power consumption of my 290 by a good chunk, and under full load temps are between 50-60C, which is insane. definitely worth the extra money to replace an underwhelming air cooler. I used my own non-conductive thermal paste instead of the pre-applied stuff on the AIO, which I would recommend.

Anywho, its a great product. would highly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat can I say?

Pros: I have owned this bracket for about 3 months so far with my ASUS GTX 770 and the Corsair H50 (which in fact does fit @Heather H.).
After some tests, I have concluded that at a 27ºC ambient room temp:
- Idle temperatures that are ~33ºC, which is similar to the stock cooler.
- FurMark Max temp of 56ºC (AMAZING) compared to the previous 96ºC @1080p on the Stock Burn-In-Test
- VRM does get fairly warm, from the touch, I'd say about 80-85ºC, which is pretty warm but, not extremely dangerous (sorry I don't have a lazer temp thermometer).
All in all, this is a great liquid cooler solution, and in total my purchase was $80 for this :D. As a recommendation, you can buy heat sinks separately and modify them to fit, which wouldn't be a bad idea for the VRM and if you are into being all custom like that. ^_^

Cons: The installation was the only difficult thing I found about this:

1. The aztec style cooler does fit perfectly with the teeth supplied on the bracket, but you can't really mount it to anything until you screw the four screws into the card.

So really what you are doing is using one hand to push the cooler into the teeth on the bracket as you align the screws and get at least two in before you can remove your hand.

This was a little troublesome, especially since I used Arctic Silver V instead of the stock stuff, which I think helped that 56ºC reading on furmark.

2. The back plate wasn't that bad of an issue, but I feel like it could've been changed. I currently have the nice brushed aluminum back plate on the GTX 770 from ASUS, and seriously, who would want to remove that? (plus you really can't since it's pinned in, lol).

I ended up removing the 1/2 cm thick pad on the back of the little back plate it came with, so I was able to secure it on there, even without putting as much pressure on the GPU since the ASUS back plate had it offset from the GPU.

Other Thoughts: I recently (about 2 hours ago) ordered the Gigabyte Gaming Edition GTX 970 before it sold out :D.

I am planning to do another review with that card, especially since it has about 40% less power consumption and much better overclocking capabilities than the GTX 770. That also means that the VRMs should be a bit cooler, firstly because of the reduced voltage and the less stressed VRMs because the their new technologies. ^_^
