    Ahh, OK Paul, thanks. Seems it's not available in the US at Newegg, Amazon, or Tiger Direct.
    Seems it take up a lot of space in a Xfire or SLI arrangement.

    That looks like a lot of work wouldn't it be easier to do a custom RAD i think the cost would be about the same or cheaper

    That GPU rad looks pretty awesome though if my GPU didn't have a fancy cooler already that would be my choice

    Well, all done , really an easy mod if you have a case big enough.

    Did run into some problems , my BGA Memory Ramsinks... too tall but you really don't need them, it was a cheap add on so I gave it a try. Ill sand them down a bit and reinstall them another time.






    Basically you need to remove the backplate of the card to be able to install the G10 . Not a big deal but the heatsink for the VRM's is screwed in place by the backplate. You don't really need a heatsink but if I plan to overclock like I think I can with this MOD, I absolutely want it. So I just past a thread and did good knot.







    Not too many wires and NZXT did a great job giving space for cable/water line management




    Final result look's like this








    Pretty nice... IMO.


    Ok, now the temps ....


    Since the cards are Asus GTX 770 DirectCUII's , at idle they are pretty cool out of the box, around 27. Now they are down to about 24...not a big improvement, I was kinda pissed actually lol. So I fired up BF4.... Dear God, Everything on MAX, full everything I usually ran the cards at 65 or so , now....... 30 WTH ???

    I was skeptical about these, you should not. If you have a spare water cooler go for it. Ho, and no more mind blowing sound from the fan's , love it.

    They are not available on online stores, only on the NZXT website, go figure.

    Whats to stop the GPU Ram from over heating? as normally dont they have thermal pads that press against a heat sink? from the images it looks like the Base plate sits a long way off from the RAM

    The GPU Ram never goes hot, only the VRM's actually do. On the Direct CUII cards they don't even have thermal pads of any kind, on air only !

    I just did a full bench of FurMark at 1080p, take a look at the temps.
