NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

5 out of 5 eggs Get's the job done 10/21/2014

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

Pros: Fit my GTX760 "Mini ITX" by MSI GPU without issue.

Cons: No eggs removed, but on my CPU board (made for mini ITX) about half of the bracket hags off the end of the card (the part that holds the fan). I almost took my dremmel to it to cut it off and just use the actual pump harness, but that would have looked bad. If they could make one w/o the fan addition, and just a smaller pump bracket, I might purchase a second for my other GPU (I have 2 identical boards in SLI)

Other Thoughts: As mentioned in the instructions, this isn't really meant for the novice. I used this as my first jump into liquid cooling my GPU (plenty of experience with my CPU). Easier than expected. Just requires taking your time to understand the proper orientation of the bracket and getting the pump secured.

I installed on a MSI GTX760 "Mini ITX" board (in a full ATX case BTW). I had concerns as my card is not as long as most, but it fit just fine. The fan hangs off the card, but it actually helps with overall airflow in the case.

Pros: Great card, good price for a GTX 760
Short card makes for easy fit into almost any case -even in my mid-tower it is nice. Larger cards make dealing with HDD and pci/aux power connectors a pain. Temps are OK at load (bit higher than I've read other cards, but well within safe limit).

Also, power Aux power is on the top of the card, which is nice for tight cases (most other cards have them on the vertical back end - in my case this interferes with the HDD power/SATA connectors). In my mid-tower,m it also keeps them clear of my SATA ports

Cons: 2 cards eat up all my PCI space - Not really a con, but 2 of these in SLI (and pretty much any card) leaves only 1 PCI slot possibly available , and it would be tight. I couldn't fite 3-way SLI with one of these (not that I was planning on it).

Other Thoughts: Great card, so much so that when I saw the opportunity I purchased a second for SLI. The small form factor (MINI-ITX) means that I can easily move these cards of to smaller PC's in the coming years when they age out of my main rig and utilize a MINI-
ITX case for an HTPC

  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Slim, compact design. Fast charging as advertised. I like the extended power cable.

Cons: None... yet

Other Thoughts: Still a little early, but so far so good. Great compact design. Not much bigger than the average wall charger. Also helped clear some clutter by routing all my power needs to one place (with a little help from a Velcro roll)
