The Kraken G10 is designed to nally bring high performance, cost-effective cooling to the GPU by incorporating existing all-in-one liquid cooling technology to a majority of video cards. The steel Kraken G10 bracket allows users to mount the NZXT Kraken coolers as well as non-NZXT brand liquid coolers to their GPU with ease. (See compatibility list for compatible coolers) With an included 92mm fan to cool the VRM and the high performance abilities of the Kraken cooler, the Kraken G10 offers over 40% cooling increases over stock coolers.

Please check the height restriction before purchase. Some variation in die thickness and height may cause issues with screws being too short to install on some AMD 290-based cards. Do NOT force the G10 to fit if your card is too thick, contact support for a revised screw set. Some variations in AMD die height may require the use of a shim.

I am waiting on a second G10 and H90 to put on the secondary card. Installation was very easy. Instructions were straight forward and everything came together fine. It was a bit of a hassle trying to wrangle the tubes on the H90 in to place but with a little patience and dexterity everything snapped into place perfectly.
I went ahead and bought the second bracket just to give it a try and they FIT! It was not easy to get them in my small case but they do push on each other a little but not a concerning amount temps never reach above 60*c on both cards now overclocked and during benchmarking. They also look very good in my small case.
I would have gone full watercooling loop to cool my graphics cards but there was no "full block" available for my card. So this was the cheapest and most effective route and did not disappoint.
Installation was as expected, not too hard. I left the metal front-plate/passive heat sink on, but had to modify the plate slightly with the dremel tool to cut back the 4 tabs around the GPU by about 1/8 inch each (this includes part of the aluminum nut, shaving off to just before the threads). This allowed the H90 block to sit with about 1/32" of clearance all around. I also installed copper VRAM-size heatsinks on top of the plate to assist with cooling, directly over the VRM chips.
Performance has been excellent. About a 40% drop of temps as advertised. Was hitting 80 degrees in benchmarks and games, even with fan profile set to full RPM at 75c. Now I hit about 45-50 in the same situation, with absolute max around 60 degrees after a few hours. This is with the H90 with 2 silverstone generic 140 fans running about 50% speed (totally silent). I used the silverstones because the included H90 corsair fans were rattling and extremely noisy. If I up the speed of the fans, I get an additional 5-10c drop but to me I want silent, and temps are cool enough, so I keep them at 50%. This is also with a 50core+300memory overclock on both cards.
All in all, highly recommend this product, it allowed me to finally +OC my graphics cards and keep them dead silent in the process... before, stock (factory OC) resulted in very noisy GPU fans all the time when under load and throttling of the card at 80c which hurt perf with fps spikes at times. But be sure to check out your VRM situation to make sure these get cooler by more than just fan air on direct chip. I used a temp probe and am getting max 70c on the back of the card above VRMs at max load, using the included passive heatsink plate that came with the card + the copper heatsinks added on the plate to help. I am guessing around 80c is the actual VRM max temp under load.
Anyways, I have a very expensive Titan X card that runs far too hot. With the stock reference cooler, it idles at 69c and will fully thermal throttle at 92c for intensive games such as maxed out Witcher 3. Perhaps the card I received is a bad one considering others folks have no problems with heat, and my tower runs very cool overall. I plan on getting another Titan X for SLI (whenever I can afford it), and when that time comes I will do a full custom water loop with all EK parts. The problem is that, I don't want to have to re-route my expensive loop when that time comes so I need a temporary single card solution. Enter the NZXT Kraken G10 bracket. I bought a cheaper end Corsair H55 to go along with it (push/pull config). There's still the issue with the VRAM and VRM cooling, so I purchased online "mini ram heatsinks", with either preapplied thermal pad or higher quality stand-alone. I attached the heatsinks on all the ram. Do your measurements with the heatsinks, and I genuinely recommend going this route, as you don't want to blow your VRM and VRAM. Plenty of clearance for me with the heatsinks and NZXT bracket. Now with everything installed, The gpu idles at 36c-39c (depends on my house ambient temp) and under full load at 55c, the VRM/VRAM remain in around same temps safely. A substantial improvement IMO.
I had Corsair H55 liquid cooler which I was no longer using since I have my CPU cooled by Corsair H100i.
It's really worth a buy for me and gave a job back to my sacked calmer Corsair H55. Fitting it initially I had few problems and since the provided screw set was not long enough, contacted NZXT if they can provide a revise screw set which they claim on the web site but I never heard back from them :(. I had to make some adjustment to have it fit on the R9 280X, where I reduced the PAD thickness by rubbing it with a file (black rubber like pad stick to the back connector). It looks good now no problem so far.
Not yet tested on temperature and performance analysis due to lack of time.
This product is pretty new in market and think I may be the first person to try this on R9 280X with Corsair cooler. Well this is worth a buy for those who are hard core gamer, those owning high end graphics card for overclocking and for those who have a hobby of building and upgrading PC just for fun like me :).
Update on test results:
So It really works well and lot better than I expected. It did made a significant change on temperature wise, temperature of GPU stays at 30 Celsius at ideal sometimes below than that(which us to be around 37Celsius on stock cooler). While playing games with ultra-settings like Battlefield 4, Watch dogs, Project Cars and F1 2014 (these type of games are of my likes :)) temperature stays within 50 Celsius or maximum it reached to 54 Celsius and that is in very rare occasions. The values are based on considering an average room temperature of 22-24Celsius /71-74Fahrenheit. It¡¦s been more than 6 months now so far no problems at all. One minor thing need to do is to clean the dust accumulated over the radiator, this will make the temperatures go little bit high and so has the fan speed. Apparently not apply to you since the surroundings around my house is pretty dusty.
However Performance I did some minor overclocking but did not concentrated much on that has I did not find any significant performance changes by doing overclocking.
