Decent if modified

  • Summary: Overall I am happy with this purchase. The bracket did not exactly fit my 660 Ti, and the VRAM fan suspended over the back of the card, cooling nothing. This also left VRAM uncooled. To work around these, I decided to simply cut the bracket in half and only use the water pump block.
  • Pros: Fitted this onto an EVGA GTX 660Ti -Allows me to attach my Corsair H55 which lowers my idle temp to 26°C and my temps under full load never get over 36°C with my pump running about 30%. See other thoughts. -Simple design and construction.
  • Cons: -Only compatible with certain cards. -Included fan is very sub-par. Cheap, loud, and doesn't move a lot of air. -A bit pricey for what you get. 30 bucks plus S&H seems a bit high.

Godly piece of hardware!

Diane P., Newegg

  • Summary: I wanted the Corsair solution but after three months of them telling us next month I finally caved and got this bracket and I was not disappointed This bracket works great with the EVGA 780 as the EVGA 780 comes with an internal heat sink that keep things cool and also adds strength to the PCB so it...
  • Pros: The NZXT bracket works well with my EVGA 780 and is easy to buy unlike the HG10 N780 witch is a Corsair paper release. Paired with an H55 this bracket keeps my GTX 780 under 50C at full load!
  • Cons: Not the easiest install... I had to make a copper shim for my card out of an old heat sink and the screws barely had enough thread with the shim in place...

  • Summary: So I used this and the Corsair H50 watercooler to cool my HD6850 and it has done a fantastic job. However, I don't use it now because the H50 was becoming very problematic. It's tubing wasn't very flexible and it kinked very easily so it defeated the purpose.
  • Pros: -Love the fact that I can watercool a card that doesn't brackets made for it anymore -Keeps the temperatures at least -10C cooler, which is outstanding! -Has a very sleek design -Fairly easy to install - Is a very inexpensive way to get a decent watercooled graphics card
  • Cons: - It was fairly heavy - when fully installed, it didn't leave any space for any other PCI devices below it. (My board is a Mini ATX, so there wasn't another slot to use that was compatible with my USB 3.0 card that sits below) - Like others have stated, the paint is a bit to thick on it so it too...

Great Idea, but crude

William S., Newegg

  • Summary: -Honestly, this is the easiest solution for those of us who want to quiet things down and control the temps. -I can tell it works, playing DA:I I'm blasting tons of heat out from the radiator.
  • Pros: - It does work. Tamed my R9 280, which was throttling pretty badly and flooding my ITX case with a ton of residual heat. - Manged to shoehorn this setup into a CoolerMaster Elite 130 ITX case. Barely. Piped one water line up and over, one under and along the edge of the MB. -It's much quieter tha...
  • Cons: -Severely lacking in the the RAM cooling dept. You will want to pick up some aluminum heat sinks. -As mentioned by others, those with AMD cards beware... the inner most post holes are rough.

Great Bracket!

Jacob B., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Summary: When I first installed it i thought I wasn't getting good contact between the GPU and the cooler due to the NZXT kraken mount. I was having to clean off thermal paste and try again and again and again. I finally gave up and decided to see how it did with what I thought was bad contact...
  • Pros: Using this in conjunction with a HD7870 and a Kuhler H20 620. Lowered my max gaming temp in BF4 by an astonishing 32 degrees Celsius. Idle and normal use is down by about 15 degrees C. -Keeps the card cool -All metal design -Installation was easy (if I can do it, you can do it) -Price was right
  • Cons: none

Great for what you need it for.

Nicholas H., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: Could use an extra pair of hands to install.
  • Pros: It was pretty easy to install overall. If you look around you will see that people with AMD cards will have a little trouble connecting the back bracket to the cooler and you will. I currently have a 7870 and it was a little tricky putting it on. I also found that the 92mm fan hangs out over the ...
  • Cons: Like I said above it was a little hard to get one. For the AMD cards you need to fit the screws through the A holes i believe and sometimes they aren't cut out very well. I got lucky and i only had to make 1 of the holes a little bigger with the prong from a fork. But other than that there are no...

Thanks NZXT!

  • Summary: I am really glad someone came up with this solution! For the life of me I can't understand why the dragging of the feet when it comes to GPU cooling. After years of plug and play CPU cooling there is finally someone that took the challenge!
  • Pros: So far I have not been able to get my EVGA GTX-670 4 gig FTW over 45 C at full load in BF4. All my other games run around 38 C. The best part and most important thing is that my computer no longer sounds like a jet engine. That alone was worth the $95 and a lot of effort to me. Thankfully I was a...
  • Cons: As some have said it is difficult to install but I really don't mind, I like a challenge! ;-) And since there really isn't a better option out there I can't discount an egg for that.

Does the job well

travis a., Newegg
21 January 2015
  • Summary: I paired this with the corsair h50 and my EVGA gtx 970 - it works beautifully. I idle around 27c, go up to around 43c under load.
  • Pros: This does very well at the job it performs. The instructions aren't terribly detailed, but if youtube is definitely a thing that exists. Had to lop off an egg because one of my spacers was malformed, and would not go onto the screw. Luckily, I had spares that fit fine - it would have sucked to wa...
  • Cons: Spacer was malformed
