Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

FAIR WARNING - At the time of posting this product is not available yet, so those are just links to search results, but it's going to cost about $30.

Amazon: http://geni.us/0Sey7k

 

The G10 from NZXT is one of those... little things. It just isn't that crazy of a concept and should have been done ages ago, but it took NZXT to just get in there and do it. I love these guys sometimes.

My excitement when I saw NZXT first post this on Facebook.

really wish they used it on a card that has an aftermarket cooler option so we can see if there is any point to this or if its like the cpu where an after market air cooler is just as good as aio in most cases.

For those without an old AIO laying around, it would be nice for NZXT to make a bundle avaliable.

Linus/Luke, Thanks for sharing; I hadn't considered this type of solution. I won't be full out water cooling but this is easily possible.

 

Please do provide the temps on the R9 290 card if they're available!

 

Cheers.

Ok, I have to get this and mod it a little bit, this is way to awesome. Omg! ^^ 

 

Linus should also mention it comes in three colours: white, black, red.

Man, I do miss Dwood's design...

 

Glad he and NZXT made out a deal.

 

Is that fact?  I got two of his brackets for my 580's when he first started making them.  Would be nice to know that he was involved in the design of these. ;)

Very easy to spot it to be 3. Look at the tumb screws for the PCI brackets at the case. I was more thinking it was 3,5/4 when I saw them first, but you can just count the tumb screws. The 1st card is using 3 screws. Then the 2nd card starts at the 4th one. So 3 slot it is.

Awesome, now..

 

Which Noctua fan to replace the NZXT 92mm fan with?

And which 140mm closed loop single radiator to use with it?

 

I have a Define R4, and I want to put two 290's in there, along with this. (In the future..)

The tubes should reach the front intake, but I'm not sure which solutions will reach?

 

Thanks in advance guys!
