NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Kraken G10 03/21/2014

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

Pros: It Works

Cons: Would be nice if they sold VRM heatsinks that snap on the VRM like the new cards.

Other Thoughts: So far its good, Mining LTC 24/7 on a 290X-my temps are (as per GPU-Z)GPU 54C / VRM1 67C / VRM2 66C. this is with modified VRM heatsink, W/O heatsink-Temps on VRM1-82C / VRM2-76C. Also its quiet compared to reference fan. My 290X with the new heatsink is not so bad in noise at 85% fan with temps of GPU 70C / VRM1 88C / VRM2 78C. I Do not Overclock, since games look awesome either way so I cant say how the temps will hold up. Overall im happy with the results and waiting on two Corsair H55 to finish modding my last 2 - 290X. I have four 290X running on a Lian-Li PC A75. Have two cards on PCIe X16 for crossfire when needed, the other two on USB risers since this bracket takes about 2.5 slots so 3 slots are a must. if u were to bend the bracket im pretty sure it will fit in 2 slots. The case is perfect, clean and you would never guess whats inside since the noise is not so bad. BTW this is on a Gigabyte X79-UP4, Intel 3820 W/(Corsair H100), 16Gb RipjawsX, 5 case fans, with soon to be 4 290x w/4 Corsair H55. Using 2 900w psu. the wall meter reads 1400watts being pulled average.

ASUS R9290X-4GD5 Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast
decent power draw

Cons: Loud and Loud
oh, its hot too

Other Thoughts: Got 20% minimum jump performance from my Powercolor 280x OC. I know that 90c is normal for this card, but I just cant see myself letting this card get so hot. I game with Headphones so noise (62dB) is not a problem for me. Its at 78c with the fan at 64% on full load (1000Mhz and 1250mem). Power draw went down from 450w (full load on 280x) to 400w full load with this card, btw this is on a Corsair 550D with a 3820, 5 case fans, 1 vga fan, and the Kraken X40. If you dont mind the noise or price get this card, If you do, the 280X is an Excellent card. You cant go wrong with either one of this cards as both max out settings for any game available.

PowerColor TurboDuo AXR9 280X 3GBD5-T2DHE/OC Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works

Cons: none as of now

Other Thoughts: this card is about 5% to 10% better than the 7970, as i have both and have stressed them 24h each just for kicks. if u own a 7970 get a 290x if u must have top of the line, other than that, not much to write home about here. Temp wise I don't have any problems, at 50% fan speed on full load 24h test was stable, GPU temp @ 73c and VRM temp1 @ 97c and VRM temp2 @ 88c. I used Litecoin mining for this @ 735 khash/s average. Dont know what that means but my brother thinks thats fine.
