Kuhler 920 Beats The Competition

Posted

Pros: Quality, Rugged, Effective, Cheap

Antec's all in one CPU water cooling solution blows the competition out of the water. I did a lot of comparing and researching when it came down to which solution I was going to go with, and it boiled down between the H80, the H100 and Antec's 920. The bottom line came down to quality. Antec contracted out an actual water-cooling company to fabricate and produce this for them, and Corsair did not. The result? A more effective and more reliable higher quality solution. The radiator puts the corsair one to shame, and the tubing is of much higher quality. It's comparable to what you would see in an actual water cooled rig. I've over clocked my 2600K all the way to 4.8 Ghz and under load...

Kühler for cool - pretty much!

Posted

Pros: Great pump speed, cools like a boss

Cons: Instruction are outdated, Antec fans are noisy, light stays on, stock thermal paste has got little to be desired

The 920 was bought due to me wanting liquid cooling over the conventional fan cooling. I also went for this over the Corsair H series, due to it having non-ribbed pipes. I also have the I7 3770K and was thinking of OC'ing it, so I needed something to cool down that dreaded Ivy Bridge processor. This does the job. Pros: -Software is easy to use, and very simple and intuitive -Lighting the Antec is pretty cool, especially seeing as you can modify the colour of it -Setting your own fan profile is very easy, and truly recommended to do, to match your rig. -The cooler does its job, and at max load, under p95 for over 20hrs, keeps my CPU at around 75-85c - I'm currently OC'ed at 4.5ghz...

Can't find a flaw!!

Posted

Pros: Antec quality, no stress on motherboard, cooler temps, easy installation

Cons: The dang plastic backplate (why don't they reinforce these)

Well, after looking for a flaw, I have given up and just am completely impressed with it. I was against water cooling of any type for a long time and finally started to look into them. This one to me is for sure one of the best. I didn't want a 240 rad cluttering up my system and this double thick 120 was perfect for me. I only had one place in mind to mount this and that is right under my dvd burner because it is well out of the way and gives my front fan (lepa casino 1c) good show-through the front of the case to match the preinstalled 140mm fan. This unit is also very short so it doesn't clutter up my cpu area at all and the flexible lines are much nicer than the corsair and some...

Really good product

Posted

Pros: works really good and keeps sound level on the down side untill it starts working %100

Cons: once the fan hits %100 the neighbors would think you are vacuming your home!!

overall Im really happy I purchased this cooler since Im beginner and it indeed helped to reduce the temperature on my CPU, some things I noticed though is that the difference between Idle and on load temperature are not very big, on idle I can get around 32C and on load 42C. the idle temperature is always or mostly gonna be on its best the same temperature as your room.
