The NZXT Kraken G10 is a liquid cooled GPU mounting kit that is compatible with our Kraken series of all-in-one liquid coolers.

The Kraken G10 offers over 40% cooling increase over the GPU’s stock cooler and provides a level of performance only previously achievable with a costly custom liquid cooled setup.

The Kraken G10 is also compatible with a over 40 different reference graphics cards and more than 30 different all-in-one liquid cooling solutions, nearly guaranteeing compatibility with your personal GPU.

That’s because the Kraken G10 is especially designed to cool both Nvidia and AMD VRM modules while providing enough clearance to properly mount supplemental VRM sinks.

If you decide to take things up a notch, you can also overclock your GPU without worrying about keeping things cool.
