    Went through several sets of Turtle Beach Z6a's but after 5 RMA's due to the plastic cracking and eventually breaking above the earpiece I tried my wifes Corsair 1500's and went with those, holding up well a year later

    Excellent choice of components,really clever drive setup,what temps do you get with that Kraken,if you dont mind asking?

    Temps are much better compared to the stock cooler keeping everything at 94C lol. I added the Kraken G10 after I bought the Gelid Icy Vision Rev.2 and it didn't come with the proper heatsinks for either VRM's. Contacted Gelid about it and never heard anything back so I ordered the Kraken along with a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer. I contacted Gelid's North American distributor and they sent me the revision kit for the 290/290X, which is the sinks in the pic, and they fit perfectly. I just ran Heaven on the settings for the thread here and temps on core were 52C max, VRM1@67C, and VRM2@61C. Being I pretty much voided my warranty already I'm going to try a few more thing's I've found while poking around and see what kind of improvements I can manage.
