  1. In the NZXT website it says that that bracket is compatible with the graphics card, but this is not using the reference cooler so I looked at the dimensions for both pieces.
    GPU bracket: 17.7 cm long, 3.32 cm wide and 11.06 cm high.
    Asus 290: 28.7 cm long, 4.06 cm wide and 14.73 cm high.
    The GPU bracket seems to be smaller than that Asus graphics card. That bracket is designed for the reference cooler of a card.

    and will the arctic accelero iii or iv fit?
  5. Is it the Reference blower style model? Or the Direct CU II model?

    If its the reference model, then the G10 will work fine, and them copper heatsinks will work fine, i have the same ones, but get some thermal tape to stick them on, they arent sticky enough out of the box.

    Cant say for sure, but it probably will, as long as the mounting holes are in the same place.

    That said, if you want to use the G10, then buy a cheaper reference model.
