1 out of 5 eggsit's funny I had to mod a mod

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Cheap bracket

Cons: Granted if they would of sent the kit with the correctly slotted locking screws it would of fit in slot a and locked so I could tighten it. The screws only fit in the center of abc had to drill out a on the bracket so it could fit my r9-290x tri-x. Granted if the worker bee would of put correct screws in the kit I would not of had to drill out the bottom bracket. Why wouldn't I wait till I could get the correct screws is because I had my whole rig ripped apart on my kitchen table and was not going to leave it that way. Nzxt get more competent people.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Used with Thermaltake water 3.0 Pro radiator, its a good thick rad that i recommend if youre gonna overclock extremely high (ex R9 290 @1.2Ghz) Holds said clock to 89C at load

Cons: Getting the block on is kinda annoying,but not that hard, It is also notable that sometimes the paint on the kraken g10s is that the paint can mess up the screw holes to screw down your cpu(Gpu in this situation) block.

3 out of 5 eggsdecent

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Works well. Has a fan that cools non GPU components of the graphics card. Previous versions of this product did not.

Cons: Difficult to put on.

Other Thoughts: So I get the bracket and attach my kraken to a r9 290x graphics card. And I put it in my cmputer and it boots and then after thrity seconds it gets so slow that it cant even play HD video. After two minutes it shuts off completely. I thought it was a driver issue but the truth is that it sut down because the card was over heating because i hadnt attached it correctly because it is so hard to attach correctly. It works great. Once you get it right. Not an easy feat.

5 out of 5 eggsMake a VRM Solution

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Works wonders on the R9 290 gpu. for 30$+35$ clc manages to keep the temps under 60c when over clocked. And its summer.

Cons: I have to rely on 3rd party VRM solution. Corsair is making purpose built brackets which will retail for 40$ and I think that is the best approach.

5 out of 5 eggsFits like a glove

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: -Straight forward design
-High compatibility with current offered AIO coolers
-Rugged construction
-Quality paint job
-Inexpensive

Cons: -Single 92mm fan not adequate enough for cooling hot VRMS
-Doesn't come with small heatsinks to tape or glue to VRMS and VRAM to compensate for the lack of cooling over them

Other Thoughts: First off, even with the con's I have listed, I am still give this 5 eggs. The bracket is a godsend for anyone not willing to spend $500+ on a custom watercooling loop. Yes it really does cost that much you can do the research yourself. To give you an idea, a quality full waterblock that covers the entire card starts at ~$125 without shipping.

I'm using this bracket on a Powercolor PCS+ AMD R9 290X GPU. The great thing about the GPU I own is that Powercolor went the extra mile to put fastened heatsinks over the VRMs while the reference cards are just left bare. This put myself at ease to buy this bracket and an accompanying Corsair H55/H50 AIO cooler.

The install is very straightforward with not much to figure out. I pulled off the foam pad on the backside of the GPU die bracket and used the sticky VRAM pads from the stock Powercolor cooler since they were lower profile. The reason why I did this was so I could keep the Powercolor backplate installed with this bracket to further help cooling.

One thing to keep in mind is that not all AIB partners are going to design their PCB to reference dimension. A few of the reviews on this bracket complain that it didn't fit their card, well that's because this bracket was designed for the reference PCB. I was very lucky that Powercolor made their own PCB but still styled it after the reference PCB and made my install go along smoothly.

I wholly recommend this bracket and your choice of Asetek AIO cooler for those looking to squeeze that extra bit of performance out of your card(s) and get your system to run more quietly.

I own 2 Powercolor PCS+ R9 290X's in CrossfireX with the top card using this cooling solution and the bottom card still on the PCS+ cooler. The top card before this solution would reach temps of 85*C and the bottom card would only get to 65*C. By themselves the cards would get to about 65*C-72*C depending on the game I was playing. Now after just doing the top card it never gets over 65*C and the bottom card on the PCS+ cooler stays at or below 65*C

I'm buying another one of these brackets shortly to get them both under water to try and break 1200mhz core clocks!

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work with Gigabyte Windforce R9 290x

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Solid build,

Cons: Does not work with Gigabyte Windforce R9 290x. Without the bracket and cooler I could overclock. With the bracket and cooler it would not even run stock speeds without shutting down the video card.

Would not properly fit H75 Corsair without modding Corsair pump housing.

Other Thoughts: So I have one and cannot use it.

Does not cool VRM at all. temps are much higher than with Windforce cooler.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with Windforce R9 290x

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Good Look, easy to install

Cons: This does not work with my video card. I can add voltage and increase clocks no problem with stock windforce cooler. However when I install the bracket it has trouble running at stock settings. removed bracket, installed windforce cooler and it works fine again.

The h75 has to be modded when using the A lettered holes on the bracket as the nuts given to secure the bracket are to tall. I would recommend removing compatibility for the h75 from the list of approved coolers.

Other Thoughts: Now I have a nicely put together lump of metal, and an H75 Corsair I cannot return because I had to mod it to get it to fit.

3 out of 5 eggsWill provide updated review, but heres a starter

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: I know its going to work well, I'm not worried about that, see cons/other thoughts.

Amazing support.

Cons: Does not properly work with an h75 on a 290x. 2 of the thumbscrews will tighten down, however the other two are blocked by the fact the the block on the h75 bows out a bit near the water piping intake/outake, wherein you cannot screw in the thumbscrews at all. I had to purchase aftermarket M2.5 nuts to finish my build...they are on the way. I did however call NZXT about this issue and the dude that helped me was awesome, so kudos to NZXT for their support.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait to use it :3

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: to CODI M. below............... if you turn the fan so it blows down on the vrm's it help a little. somehow I think they made a mistake with the instructions.... or they didn't test it.

Cons: none/good product/right niche....... maybe a little on the expensive side for what it is.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Pretty easy to install after you read the instructions

Looks great

Keeps my GPU cool

Cons: Read the instructions because if you try to free ball it you are going to mess up

The stock fan sucks

Other Thoughts: I decided to pair this bracket with a Corsair H105 for my GTX 780 ti. I overclocked the voltage to its maximum, and fully stressed the GPU chip won't surpass 35 degrees C. I replaced the stock fan with a Cooler Master Blade Master 92mm PWM fan. It spins twice as fast, and produces more static pressure on the VRM's. I also added VRM heatsinks. Overall I am very happy with the bracket but if you are going to buy this product take VRM cooling into consideration.
