Corsair has just released the Hydro Series HG10 A1 Edition GPU liquid cooling bracket for AMD Radeon R9 290X and 290 graphics cards. Both a bracket and a heatsink, the HG10 allows the users to attach a Corsair Hydro Series liquid cooler to their graphics card to cool the GPU and other critical circuitry.
The black anodized aluminium HG10 bracket combined with a Corsair liquid cooler is a full-coverage GPU liquid cooling solution which cools the graphics card’s GPU as well as the heat-producing voltage regulator module (VRM) and video memory. The HG10 utilizes the graphics card’s original cooling fan, ensuring compatibility with the card’s fan speed and temperature monitoring features.
Paired with any Corsair Hydro series liquid cooler, the HG10 is able to dissipate large amounts of heat from the graphics card, dropping peak temperatures by as much as 50 degrees Celsius and at significantly lower noise levels. The extra cooling on offer can open up substantial overclocking headroom. In addition, the improved cooling largely eliminates the graphics card’s thermal throttling of performance, resulting in a card that not only runs quieter and cooler, but faster as well.
The Hydro Series HG10 A1 Edition GPU liquid cooling bracket is designed to support all stock reference versions of AMD Radeon R9 290X and 290X graphics cards. Corsair will also release new HG10 editions compatible with NVIDIA GeForce Titan, 7 Series, and other GPUs in early 2015.
The HG10 A1 Edition is priced at $39.99. It is backed with a limited 2-year warranty.
