Corsair Delivers the Hydro Series HG10 N980 and N970 Cooling Brackets

Corsair, a world leader in high-performance PC hardware, today announced the immediate availability of its new Hydro Series HG10 GPU N980 and HG10 N970 cooling brackets for NVIDIA GeForce GTX GTX 980 Ti, Titan X, GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards. Easy to install and compatible with any Corsair Hydro Series liquid CPU cooler (sold separately), the HG10 N970 and N980 help to substantially reduce your GPU's temperature, allowing for greatly increased overclocking headroom and providing as much as a 25% clock speed increase.

Designed to work with any stock PCB layout NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, Titan X, GTX 980 or GTX 9701, the HG10 N970 and HG10 N980 replace the existing air cooling of the graphics card with a precision engineered aluminium bracket, allowing users to them fit a Corsair Hydro Series liquid CPU cooler directly to the GPU. With modern graphics cards outputting over 250W of heat, a liquid cooling system is a more efficient and powerful way to keep your graphics card cool. Lower temperatures mean users can overclock their GPU with fewer thermal limitations, allowing for improved performance and higher frame rates, all while running quieter than a standard air-cooler.
