Packaging

With packaging that mimics the Kraken AIO's packaging, the Kraken G10 is displayed in its white form with it being attached to a video card and an AIO, but as it says in the fine print at the bottom, neither of them comes in this package.

On this smaller end of the box there is a basic video card compatibility list, a cooler compatibility list, and the specs are shown off to the right. It also states this has a two-year warranty, but the only thing that could possibly go bad would be the fan.

We also found a features list on one of the sides where it discusses the steel bracket that works with quite a few video cards, says it is easy to install, includes zip-ties to keep things looking clean, and states that it offers a 92mm fan for additional card cooling.

This smaller end shows us all three versions of the Kraken G10 on the left in black, white, and red; to the right, it also shows that we have the RL-KRG10-B1, or the black version.

Around the back of the packaging, NZXT covers five features with small icons, and offers another view of the included bracket along the top. Across the bottom, we see the kit installed in a Phantom with in-house results from GTX 780 testing of the stock solution versus this Kraken G10 and an X40 strapped to it.

Opening the box, we find a section off to the left where the hardware made its voyage separated from the fan to the right. Under the hardware and the fan is another layer of that same dense foam, with the metal Kraken G10 bracket riding it out at the bottom; it all arrived in excellent condition for testing.
