So If I am using 1/4 ID tubing the size of the bards is 1/4 OD ( as in outer diameter) or is it 3/8"? And How would I know if the barbs would fit the swiftech microres or not?
Finally do you have any of these barbs by chance? I wasn't able to find the proper barbs on frozen CPU, Where I live the water cooling scene is pretty much limited, look here http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentlist.asp?parttypeid=524&t=27

 

Did you try Xoxide.com? They have ones that are labeled by swiftech, but I believe it is all on a standardized threading, looks like G1/4" the cheaper ones are out of stock, but teh swiftechs are in, I believe.

So Do I ask my local shop for G1/4" to 3/8" Barbs? like these - http://www.xoxide.com/g1-4-to-3-8bfit.html? That would do the trick of fitting in the swiftech microres and the kuhlers size tubing(1/4")? Also did you find anything that would fit on that link I gave you?

Thanks for the help bud, much appreciated. smile.gif

hey people hows it going , just stuck an antec on my gtx 580, scariest thing ive done before with an NZ$800 gpu but hay i was worth it.

Anyway temps are great but im a little worried about the pump as it seems to be making a clicking noise (very noticeable at high speeds) iv played around with the orientation and its all good and quite until i put it upside down - as in installed on gpu and slotted into pci, could use a piece of mind here

cheers

There is a reason why I dont buy things from this obnoxious crap of a country. $800 for a GTX580. On top of that the crappy 15% GST. mad.gif There is a good reason why every year over 60 - 70K kiwis leave NZ for good and that migration has slowed down in NZ, the word if finally getting out.

Your Pump is fine, give it a little time, a couple of days, should be alright. my friend has one that I installed for him and it made some noises too when I installed it on my CPU. How much did you pay for the kuhler? I saw them being sold for $86 + shipping. Even tho they are around $49.99 @ US.

thanks for reply TheBirdman74, yeah its real gutting every time i go to look up a new part for my pc and see the price diff from US and other countries compared to NZ$, speaking of which, i got the antec for NZ$ 104 + free shipping, i did find it for the price you mentioned but i chose to go with a site i new was reliable and that i use quite often simply for piece of mind.

as for the info on the pump, thats good too know, its sitting on 45% at the mo (im using Speedfan) coz any higher and it go nuts
post #76 of 8616
I know, its bloody gutting, thats why I pick up my things from Australia when I'm visiting my Uncle there or just ask my other uncle at the US to send stuff, sure beats buying them from NZ even after the shipping costs. thumb.gif Give it a few days Bud. I currently have a H70 but before that I tried the Kuhler and I installed it and had it set at 100% from the BIOS and had two fans in a Push Pull Config. The temps dropped 10C and the thing was still pretty quite at around 1AM while running prime95. (I hate noise and I can vouch that the unit was damn whisper quite sitting about 2 feet away at the bottom of my desk.)

But then again I have heard some pumps may have problems if they make constant noise(unless moved or shaken) after the first couple of days burn in period.

Guide to Modding Antec 620 Cooler Using Minimum Amount of Zipties and Modded Mount
Step 1: Remove the old cooler and prep the chip (Click to show)
Like the title says, remove the old cooler carefully and clean off the chip with 91-99% alcohol. Make sure the chip is very clean!
Step 2: Lap the Antec 620 cooler surface (Click to show)
The antec cooler is great. However, the bottom of the cooler isn't so great. It is a very concave surface. Meaning the center of the surface is higher than the rest of the area. With a heatsink, you want the entire surface to be completely flat. Take 400-600 grit sand paper and sand the surface back and forth on the glass surface. This will begin to remove the concave surface and make the cooler head flat. You can stop after you think your sanding all the surface of the copper head. Next take 1500-2500 grit sand paper and begin to sand the surface till it removes all the scratches in it and creates a mirror finish.

Step 3: Get the AMD mounting plate (Click to show)
The AMD mounting plate seemed to work better for my GTX 560. Basically what you want to do is cut off all of the L shaped bracket material for where the normal mounting screws would go. This should leave you with a nice round disc without much material going down toward the chip and PCB area. I used snippers for cutting the metal, that worked best for me, you can decide how you want to cut them off but they need to be cut or else the cooler won't properly contact the chip because of these L brackets.
Step 4: Get 4 (Click to show)
These zip ties go through the normal screw holes on the PCB.
The zip tie should be tied to the AMD bracket mount after it has been cut. Basically you want to zip the tie with the long end on the outside of the bracket and pointed down.
Then once you zip it tight, fish the 4 zip ties through the holes on the PCB.
Next, you want to take 4 more zip ties and basically use the lock ends on them as a sort of nut for the system. Do not zip the nuts tight or else you won't be able to attach the pump to the cooler. That will come later.
Once you have 4 of the zip ties through the PCB and secured by 4 other zip ties of the other end you can put thermal paste on the chip and mount the pump. Flip the card over and be careful not to swivel and twist around the pump on the chip, I had a problem with this but you might be better at it. Once you have the pump on the chip and the bracket secure to the pump tighten the zip ties from the other end of the PCB so that they act as nuts holding the bracket and pump tight to the chip and PCB.
450
Once that is complete you can trim the excess of the zip ties and make sure the bracket and pump is secure. You should be able to twist the pump very little on the chip after everything is tight, that is fine. I used pliers and pulled gently on the zip ties up and pushed the nuts down to make sure everything was nice and tight.
450
Step 5: Test the card and make any necessary adjustments (Click to show)
The Antec 620 instructions should detail you with how to hookup the fan and pump. Make sure you don't ever run the pump under 100% power. And mount the radiator blowing out of your case in however orientation you need it. I prefer push-pull but its up to you. You should have crazy low temps anyway so your fine.
I don't have any evidence to suggest that if your chip gets over 60C with this Antec 620 mod that you should seriously consider either repasting the chip and resetting the cooler or checking to make sure everything is ok with the pump. You should have a great result and that should be it!

DON'T FORGET A VRM FAN!!!!

Hey Bud, Make sure you pick up the Jumbo Pack the 40G pack goes for $36 + shipping. Better deal than spending the $12- $15 on the 4g tubes thumb.gif
