Did the NZXT Kraken G12 Fix the VRM and VRAM issue for a Radeon R9 290?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about getting a NZXT kraken G12 but i want to know if they fixed the VRAM and VRM heat issues on an Radeon r9 290.

Giving the VRM and VRAM less airflow is probably not the solution to overheating. I don't think the G12 is going to help unless you also get some small heatsinks or can keep the ones on there if there are any. VRAM shouldn't have a temp issue though, VRAM likes heat

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.


Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
