Default XC7 mount into G12?

Was curious if anyone has tried to fit XC7 CPU block into NZXT G12 GPU cooler kit?

I am not sure why you would do this. The XC7 block would need tubes and fittings appropriate for custom cooling. You still need a radiator. So the only thing you save is buying a water block for the GPU. However, you would still need to strip it down more than halfway, which is the bulk of the work. The only reason to use an adapter like the G12 is to bolt an AIO onto the GPU, which is perfectly fine for a hybrid set-up on most GPUs.

Because I have a G12 hooked to a Kraken and would like to get away from having to use CAM and a AIO.

I would think another non-software AIO or something from Corsair (if you are already running iCUE) would be the most efficient solution. In theory, the socket posts are in the same place, but you would still need a pump, radiator, tubing, and fittings — then hope the bracket works. Can’t really say much about it without one and I would be surprised if someone has tried this with this combination.
