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

3 out of 5 eggs A good idea, but flawed for overclocking. 01/19/2015

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

Pros: Limited my MSI 780 ti to 62 degrees C while at full load with corsair H55 and two Noctua fans in push/pull configuration. Temps were 76 degrees C with the air cooler.

Cons: Core and memory clocks were not able to be increased beyond the levels offered by the stock air cooler, despite the 14 degree reduction in max. temperature. I believe this is due to inadequate VRM cooling, although I never measured them.

Other Thoughts: After trying this, I purchased Swiftech's H-240X expandable AIO cooler, and a Koolance waterblock for my card. With the chip and the VRM being cooled, I gained +50 MHz on the core, and +125 MHz on the memory of the GPU, while max temp under load was reduced to 52 degrees C. All of this without adjusting the voltage on the card. This is a much better solution in my opinion.

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Lowest priced 780Ti at the time I purchased
- Performance comparable to GTX titan
- My card worked perfectly from the moment I plugged it in
- Vastly improved performance relative to my previous card
- I like Nvidia's software - it's useful
- Smaller than the card it replaced (MIS Lightning 7970)
- Comparably low power consumption

Cons: I wish graphics cards, in general, were cheaper. It is expensive to replace these every two years.

Other Thoughts: I've had quite a few MSI products before, and the quality and reliability of their products has been top notch.

I've had 4 AMD cards in a row before this one, but I choose Nvidia 780Ti because it is better than the current generation AMD cards. Also, my 7970 had an issue with the HDMI audio skipping when plugged into my HDTV that I could never figure out - the only thing that fixed it was to unhook the audio cable from my tv, and plug it into the optical port on my computer; it was pretty annoying doing that over the course of two years. I assumed the problem was driver related. This card eliminated that problem.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This processor is running in my small form factor school rig, and it works great. AMD either can't, or chooses not to compete with Intel when it comes to processors.
This processor is a good blend of price and performance.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: i can't say anything about the integrated graphics because I run a dedicated card.
