Older Machine, New Overclocker. Blast from the past? How to keep an Intel E8500 cool :D - Page 3

Not a problem. Let me know what temps you get and how it's going!

Thread Starter 
I got it hooked up, the fans are running and the antec emblem on the Coller is glowing. But the Antec software Chill Control says: "Cannot connect to chill control device. Check USB connection on device and restart the Chill Control Application"

I have reinstalled it 3 times.

I have tried plugging the usb type cord into 4 different USB spots, and the fan plug into the chassis fan slot and the cpu fan slot an I cannot get the antec software to work.

According to core temp my #0 core starts at 50c and at 100% load is only goes of 4c to 54c
my #1 core starts at 33c and at 100% load goes up to 46c


I just want to make sure that the temps are correct. Shouldn't there be a greater increase in temp on the first core?

Thanks again!

Just try connecting the usb plug in a couple of different ways, I had issues with it too. You need to make sure that the pump is running at maximum speed. If possible, plug it into a molex to 3 pin adaptor. If you don't have one, go into your bios and make sure the fan plugs do not have PWM, smart control or voltage control enabled. Hopefully that should make the pump run at full speed.

Do you have any other thermal paste? If you've remounted the cooler 3 times the thermal paste may be a little screwed up, giving poor contact.

If you check this post that I posted in the Antec 620/920 club, it has temperatures that I got with my CPU which is a 6 core CPU.

I haven't removed the cpu cooler, sorry, I meant I have installed and reinstalled the software and drivers 4 times. I found this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1035395/antec-k-hler-h2o-920-usb-connection-issue-any-help-is-appreciated/120 and have been going thru the fixes but so far nothing has worked. I'll check my BIOs of those settings and get them right as well. Thanks again!
