NZXT Kraken G10 Liquid Cooling GPU Mounting Kit Review

NZXT Kraken G10 Liquid Cooled GPU Mounting Kit




As we start to remove the gear from the box, we have the main component of the Kraken G10 system, and that is the steel bracket. This angle is representative of the view seen when it is installed.




Flipping it over, we can now see the AIO tabbed bracket to the left that locks into the head unit. Just outside that ring are four sets of three holes to allow another bracket to sandwich that card. The right side of this bracket offers a pair of tie points, and room for the included 92mm fan.




As we take a closer look at the tabs on the bracket, we find they are exactly what was found on the older hardware before the locking ring system that Thermaltake was first to introduce. However, this bracket reintroduces all the fumbling around that the new brackets rid AIOs of.




Sticking with the black and white theme, and a fan that will look good with any of the three versions, is this DF0922512SELN 92mm fan with a black frame, and white blade to actively cool the power delivery end of the video card; however, you will need to provide heat sinks for those chips.




Here we have the top bracket that locks the card and the larger bracket together. As with the AIO bracket offered, this bracket also has the NZXT name painted on it.




Flipping over the top bracket, we see the corners are marked "A," "B," and "C," to denote various mounting, and the instructions show which letter corresponds to which card is being cooled. There is also a section of foam applied in the middle to keep the bracket from shorting out on the top of the video card.
