5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

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?

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

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. ^_^

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT needs better QA

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Great solution for watercooling a non-reference card that also can't get a water block for.
Easy installation.

Cons: The 2nd G10 I ordered came with a part that should never have made it past QA. There are 4 long screws that mount an AIO block to the GPU itself. One of the screws don't have any threads.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these for my 780 SLI setup. The first didn't have any issues and until the RMA is finished, I'm reduced to a single card. Not a ginormous deal I suppose but it's a little irritating.

1 out of 5 eggsLIES about compatibility

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: None

Cons: This was listed as being compatible with the Corsair H50 water cooler. IT MOST DEFINITELY IS NOT! I have the H50 with copper plate and it is not compatible and will NOT fit with the bracket. Thanks for wasting my time and money!

1 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT fit the Corsair H50

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: can use a OTC water cooling on your video card

Cons: Poor design
soft metal
poor fan placement for VRM
VRM close to the back plate get no cooling at all

DOES NOT WORK WITH THE CORSAIR H50. It looks like it will, but the pump and copper plate are too think and wide to fit into the the covers slip hole.

Other Thoughts: It is a good idea, but needs a better design. I attempted to re-engineer the H50 and destroyed it in the process.

5 out of 5 eggsMakes liquid-cooling on GPU's (almost) easy

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: I got this and a Zalman LQ-310 because my top GPU would idle about 5C hotter than the lower one, and it only got worse as the temps increased. Now the top Idles at least 5C cooler.

I'm so satisfied that I have already ordered a second bracket and a different cooler (the Zalman has some pump noise when mounted horizontally) for my other card.

Cons: The only difficult part of my installation process was removing the stock cooling from my Nvidia-built GeForce GTX 770, (it had about 40 screws holding it together) but that isn't NZXT's fault so it still gets 5 eggs without a doubt.

On the plus side, I was able pull out the sweet green LED that was in the original cooler and stick it to the outside of the NZXT bracket with the spacer pads that came with the Zalman.

Other Thoughts: Just observe your video card and consider how hard it will be to remove the stock cooling before you commit. I wouldn't be surprised if there were cards that took a considerable amount of time and effort to get the thing off.

Also: Make sure you have at least a small specialty bit set before you start. There were 3 or 4 different kinds/sizes of screws in my stock cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler with caveats

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Dropped my temps by over 12 c average. Worth every penny, see cons..

Cons: Screw assemblies are total rubbish, take the hex nuts and washers and set them aside. take the other hardware down to Lowes or home Depot or your local hardware vender and replace them as they are fobar. Make sure the lengths are the same and go with the largest screw diameter that fits in the hole in your video card where the original heat sink screws went. Also when you tighten down the adapter, make sure you do not bow the cards pcb. Make sure to put the new screws in the proper spot on the backing plate, some drilling of these holes may be necessary, DO NOT GO BIGGER THAN THE NEW SCREWS DIAMETER!!!.

Other Thoughts: This is a good kit for quick and dirty liquid cooling and was worth any hassle's I encountered. I would bet some if not all of the bad reviews had to do with the hold down screw assemblies.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat.. if done properly (and dangerous too)

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: This thing keeps your GPU cool. If you do it right, of course.

You really gotta tighten that bracket down. Make sure you can not see any gaps or openings between the waterblock and the gpu core. BUT DON'T TIGHTEN IT TOO MUCH OR YOU WILL BEND YOUR PCB. I tightened it down to a good degree and have a tiny, very slight bend. which is not good, but i'm fine with it as long as my temps are good. And they're not so bad - about 48-50 C under FULL load on a gtx 780 6gb. Bear in mind that my ambient temps are real bad (30-35 C)

And don't put too much thermal paste, a little pea sized dot is more than enough. Also don't use arctic silver or you'll blow your gpu

Cons: You really gotta do it right. took me a few tries and a few reapplications of thermal goop. Make sure that puppy is nice and tight - but not TOO tight.

And this thing is heavy when you pair it with an x40. Turns your GPU into a 3 slot card. with some added gpu sag as a bonus.

last but not least. don't plug the pump into your motherboard or you might fry it - just plug it into your power supply with a molex to 3 pin adapter. i actually fried my mobo by using the usb header on the x40. don't use it.

Other Thoughts: the manual is awful and confusing

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: allow's low cost water cooling, soooo quiet compared to stock Dual fans on 7870, easy install.

Cons: Cooling for one side of PCB board only, wouldnt recommend for serious GPU OC'ers, but do recommend for mild OC/Stock/or less.

Instructions are not idiot proof, read carefully and think DO...NOT...OVERTIGHTEN...MOUNTING...SCREWS!

provided cooling fan connector does not retro fit into GPU PCB, so you will need an extra fan header on your MB or PSU. I recommend molex to fan header jumper for waterpump for MB safety.

Other Thoughts: The thumb screws provided are awkward to use with my fat fingers but dont use a screwdriver to install them, remember that the original mounting screws on your GPU are spring loaded (most) so you only have to tighten those until the rubber washers under the thumb screws squish lightly.

I paired this kit with a Corsair H50 on a AMD 7870, Stock temps were 91c, this kit dropped that to 45c (under full load Heaven BM) Idle went from 60c to 24-27c.

Took one egg off because they could have designed some sort of cooling for the rear of the GPU PCB, but all in all a good product

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing all around

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: It *does* allow you to attach a water cooler to a GPU, after a fashion

Cons: biggest problem - does not fit Corsair H50 cooler, despite claims of compatibility, It took 20min with a file, filing down those locking tabs before I was able to fit through the pump.
Second problem, the bracket made out of soft, bendy steel, Having to clamp it in a vise for filing (see above) resulted in piece bending and some of the paint flaking off.
Does not fit on a stock GTX 780Ti - the plate touches power plugs at the end of the card - but easy to fix by bending the bracket LOL.
Rather low quality, noisy supplied fan.

Other Thoughts: By all measures this product should cost about $10. $40 for this is really an insult which is going to affect my future purchasing decisions with regards to NZXT brand
