Compared to our further continued CSV-5XXX line of MST Hubs the new items will differ in some major points:
  • all models are powered by USB only, no power supply needed
  • different packaging: polybag instead of retail box
  • no reset button on the product, for repeating digital handshake just plug the MST Hub on/off from the Display Port.
  • no MiniDP to DP Adapter included in the box.

NZXT Announces the Kraken G12 AIO Liquid VGA Cooling Adapter

NZXT announces today the Kraken G12 kit, allowing users to use their liquid AIOs to better cool their GPUs. Lower temperatures at lower noise improve both gaming performance and experience. By mounting an AIO, like the NZXT Kraken Series, users can significantly lower their GPU's temperatures compared to its stock cooling, increase overclocking performance, and reduce noise output for an improved gaming experience. An update to the previous Kraken G10, the Kraken G12 allows for easier installation and wider compatibility with more than 30 popular liquid AIOs on the market.

"Being able to play the latest games at the highest settings, without sacrificing performance is something all gamers want. While aftermarket graphic cards have improved lately, most stock cooling systems still can't reach the performance level of liquid cooling. That's why we decided to design the updated Kraken G12 to be easier to install and support the latest liquid AIOs" says Johnny Hou, NZXT's founder, and CEO.
