Hi all,

Planning on adding the above to my rig but I'm wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to retain the GPU's mid-plate and back-plate while installing the Kraken G12? I have seen people speculating that in order to do so one needs to Dremmel some parts off the GPU mid-plate, but I have not seen anyone saying concretely that it is possible. I've attached a photo of the parts that I presume would need cutting, but I don't know for sure. (https://imgur.com/2OZYTss)

The reason I want to keep the plates is because 1) I'm concerned about cooling on PCB components and 2) I think the bare-bones PCB look is just nasty. Any input would be great.

Have a look at this build ...The guy uses a G12 as well and seemed to kinda keep the backplate.

Honestly I don't know **** about the G12 but I just saw this yesterday. Maybe it'll help you :)
