I bought the 620, however I can't mount the backplate onto my motherboard (Asrock Z68 Extreme4). The holes on the backplate just don't line up with my mobo at all.

Has anyone else encountered this and is there a way around it? I am stuck with a seemingly useless product right now. frown.gif

Make sure your using the square backplate not the rectangular one for your i5. One hole should line up on each of the triangles (same hole on each). If your still confused then send in a photo smile.gif

Yep I've been trying to use the square Intel backplate with the spacers in the holes for "1156" but they simply won't line up!

I've trawled through the Newegg reviews, one guy with an Asrock P67 Extreme4 had the same problem as me but managed to mount it using the 775 holes albeit at an awkward angle. I'll give it another go in a few hours.

Hey everyone quick question.

I noticed that the 620 only comes with 4 screws and washers to attach the fan to the radiator and the radiator/fan to the case.

I do want to use 2 fans in a push / pull config, but now I'm trying to figure out how to mount them.

1. Is it ok to just use 2 screws on each side?
2. Do any of you know what size / length the screws are, and does Home Depot sell them?

I'm thinking that using 2 on each side should be ok. It's not like the radiator with 2 fans on it weighs 10lbs. wink.gif I'll be getting it in the mail on Thursday so I'm starting to plan out how I'm going to install this cooler.

I guess its fine to use 2, lets hope it does not vibrate just make sure you screw them from opposite sides. I guess they could sell the screws on the antec site since they sell products directly shoot them an e-mail or give them a call.

Hey guys I got my GELID PWM Y Cable in but I'm confused... one is the female end, and the other two are male ends, but only one male end actually as 4 pins and it has a sticker on it saying "With fan speed signal" but the other male end only has 3 pins on it. Shouldn't both male ends have 4 pins so I can connect 2x PWM fans? or am I missing something.

On a 3 pin fan connector one pin is power +, one is - and the third is for speed monitoring and pulses on every rotation. A 4 pin is the same but with an extra pin to control the fan. Your y cable is from 1. monitor and control (4pin) --to--> 2. Monitor and control (4 pin) -and- 3. Control (4 pin missing the monitor). The connector which is #3 here is NOT a normal 3 pin which provides only monitoring (but not control (PWM), it is a 4 pin with no monitor pin. The reason for this being that because the pin pulses on every rotation, if you were to merge them together you would get double the speed appear on your monitor (actually both added together). So this means that with this y cable BOTH fans are controlled to the same speed by the motherboard/fan controller but only ONE is monitored. So plug the one you want to monitor into the four pin, and the other into the other connector.
I hope that helps smile.gif

Edit: I don't know why they don't mention this on the page
