For what it offers that is a fair and honest price imo. Can't go wrong

I just ordered mine from Dwood, gonna setup my Corsair H50 with my EVGA GTX 670 4 gb. Just waiting for the XSPC Rasa 750 RS360 to come in stock at frozencpu.com so I can set it up on my CPU.

Yeah I am surprised, although the bracket felt a little flimsy to me, but hey it was $13 and American made.

The best part of this was that doing the mod took me 20 minutes; trying to install a single fan on the top of my case took me 30 lol
Also, I think I broke my wireless card; I have no idea how, but for some reason my computer can't detect any wireless networks and keeps telling e to plug in an ethernet cable. Whatever, I hated that card anyway; Has anyone had success using a powerline connection?

Yes, I love it. No more drop outs, no more irritating error messages and a very slight increase in speed thumb.gif

I have done a review if your interested...

I decided to go with a new wireless card; it's actually decent, so I have no gotten any connection errors so far. My last wireless card as a Trendnet TEW-432PI; worst wireless adapter ever.

Also, what speed should I put my fan on to cool the VRMs with the mod? I have a GTX 480 with the shroud on.

So the VRM's are under the shroud? I cant see how you can directly cool them with that configuration thinking.gif

Can you send a pic please?

The shroud is the plastic thing that directs the air from the fan into the heat sink. My card has the stock heat plate, shroud and fan.

Here's a picture; the shroud is the thing at the top

Gotcha thumb.gif

In that case, 40 - 50% fan speed, depending on your desire for low noise, should suffice.

Last night I zip tied a Kuhler 920 to one of my GTX 580 Matrix cards. This dropped the load temperature from ~94 degrees to ~57 degrees. It is also much quieter now. Previous load temps were really high because there is only a single slot for air between the two cards. The load temp on the bottom card is about ~83.

Configuration: Unigine Heaven, 950 MHz @ 1275 mV, stock Antec TIM and fans

For those of you wondering if you can run 2 separate instances of the Antec Chill Control software with 2 Antec 920s in your system, here is the reply I received from Antec support.
Quote:
Unfortunately you can only control one kuhler at a time. but if you got the 620, it has a built in sensor and both will adjust to your computers temperature.
