NZXT Releases the Kraken G10 Liquid Cooling GPU Bracket

With rapid developments in the world of all-in-one liquid cooling, CPU cooling has become simple, cost-effective and most importantly, powerful. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for aftermarket GPU cooling. At least not until now.

The Kraken G10 is designed to finally bring high performance, cost-effective cooling to the GPU by incorporating existing all-in-one liquid cooling technology to a majority of modern video cards, regardless of chipset or manufacturer.

Made entirely of steel, the Kraken G10 bracket allows users to mount NZXT Kraken coolers as well as non-NZXT brand liquid coolers to their GPU with ease. (See compatibility list for compatible coolers) Included with the bracket is a 92 mm fan used to cool the VRM and other video card components.

Combined with the high performance abilities of the Kraken cooler, the Kraken G10 offers over 40% cooling increases over stock coolers, a level of performance that is traditionally only achievable with a costly custom liquid cooled setup. Combined with Nvidia's GPU Boost 2.0 or AMD's PowerTune, Kraken G10 equipped video cards can perform cooler and faster than ever.

The Kraken G10 also includes zip-tie points to hide tubing behind its slick exterior, ensuring your video card looks just as amazing as it performs. Available now for just $29.99, the Kraken G10 comes in black, white or red and can be purchased directly from the NZXT armory store.

Nice but finding a place to put the rad could be an issue in many cases

The idea is good.

BUT, this seems rather big and uncomfortable. (that's what she said)

I'll defo check one of these.

Hopefully it will fit in a NZXT Switch 810 with one 140mm closed loop already in there (CPU) but if everything goes crap ill remove some HDD cages. R9 290 here we go :)

I reckon that the bottom fan mount (next to the PSU) would be rather suitable, assuming the tubing is long enough.
Seems like a great solution really, sadly can't find a compatibility list yet.

Wondered when a one of the AIO cooler vendors would see the significance of the "Red Mod". This looks like a great a structure that aids in stiffening the PCB, while providing level even contact against the chip. Smart to include the fan to cool VRM and memory, it doesn’t appear they offer any add on H-S for those.

This will be a boon to NZXT they’ll sell a bunch of these kit and probably their AIO, even though other units can be used. Man R9 290(X) with this make them a really elegant solution. Good engineering and smart pricing NZXT, hope you’re rewarded to the forward engineering.

Edit: Looking at more pic's on their site it appears they mount everything with the 4 screw that attach the pump to chip, they never use any of the original cooler mount points to help stiffen/support the PCB. Had they punched a couple more holes and had spacers with screws to better sandwich the PCB and heavy bracket together. That's what I thought originally... would've been better. Also, might it need another support from all the weight being only held up by the PCI-E slot connector. Nice but I think I’d do so more mods to make even better.

There's a tab that says Technical Specs. it's there...

Kabooom baby! , and you can change the fan with Noctua/Noiseblocker whaterver rocks your ears. Awesomeee. Although, I would like to see only AIO bracket as well- for cards whose VRM don't get so hot and you can only go by the AIO. There are some third party ones, but difficult to obtain, if a bigger player makes them its easier.

Any idea how many slots it is? This and an R9 290 would be an amazing setup for sub-$500.

Looking at the photos it appears to be 2.5 slots.

Sadly no HD7970/280X support...

Looks cool (pun not intended).

But my question is, can you fit a cpu block in there to make it part of a custom loop?

Now that would be extra cool (pun intended).

If you look at the photos, the fan is taller than the pump. If you used a slim fan I bet it would be two slots. The fan doesn't even need to be powerful.

That's what it looked like, and that's what I'm afraid of. Which means it certainly wouldn't fit in my ITX system :/

Is it confirmed that it will work with gtx 780ti reference? And what about a bracket for the Corsair H100i and H80i?

It will work with the 780ti.

Right now there we are not considering making one work for the h80i or h100i units.

Thanks for reply..bummer on the corsair units though, as there are so many in circulation and much more client potential.

Pump of the cooling element does not exceed thickness of 2 slots . Bracket on theother hand exceeding the space needed for the triple and a double SLI or CF in some cases ! have not thought about the possibility of changing radiators in case of application for multi-GPU units, The fan is too thick and other elements can therefore close the air intake. Although it looks pretty bad thought out design ! :( because of its thickness canceled at mini-PC structure where they could reap thegreatest success ! Maybe just maybe would be to use one GPU cooling unit. Eh not for me ! Thick girls have never succeeded in beauty contest .I can say the same for this product !
