All-in-one closed loop water cooling systems for video cards are out there, but normally they are part of a special edition card much like ASUS’s ARES II or cards featuring Arctic’s Accelero Hybrid cooling solution. NZXT wants to change things with their new cooling adapter for video cards. It can take any Asetek-made all-in-one CPU watercooling system and make it work on your graphics card!
NZXT confirms that this adapter will work with their Kraken Series of watercoolers, but as we said it will work with most rebranded Asetek unit, which do include Corsair’s H50 and Antec’s 620. The unit will also come with a 92mm cooling fan for even more cooling. Now of course this solution cannot compete with full-coverage waterblocks as you are just cooling the GPU and not the VRMs or memory.
But it is a simple solution to provide better cooling for your video card, especially if you have an extra watercooler laying around. This adapter kit is supposed to be very inexpensive (~$20) and will be available in the second half of 2013.
