I had to run one tube down the side of the card and against of the mobo because of the way the 90* hook ups are coming off my H70, same issue as the pump on your unit. It caused excessive pressure where the tubes went into the pump. A problem it cause doing this was i lost alot of lenght in the tubing and it limmited where i could put the rad. My Matrix is now in the lowest 8x slot so the rad can reach and sit on the bottom intake of my HAF 932. If i redo the tim ill pull both waterlines out the back of the card and mount the rad in the front drivebay...like you.

Thank you for the information on the screws. I'm thinking that I might take a screw and washer down to Home Depot to see if I can get 4 more. If I can't find anything that'll fit then I'll just use 2 on each side in a diagonal pattern.

Is the radiator threaded all the way through on both sides, or is it possible to puncture it with a screw that is too long? I wish that Antec would list the specifications for the screws to use on their website. They have to realize that a lot of people use 2 fans.

Mines in my case so I'm not sure, but I think its got 2.5ish mm of threaded metal on both sides and then hollow the rest of the way through. You won't be able to make a screw go through both threads because they go in different directions.

Thanks for the rep

Hi, Guys
I have had fun over the last week trying t install the chiller software on my system that had the OS OEM W7 64Bit Sp1 disc install RMA'd the first cooler after speaking to the distributor tech support (obviously they are not aware of this problem).
If you have the coolers USB cable connected to the mobo header when you select the finish on the chiller software you should see a panel appear asking permission to install the USB Driver software prior to reboot (does not happen so on reboot there is no auto install of the USB Driver or a new hardware wizard). Due to that not happening when you start the Chiller application on reboot you get the error message of USB can not connect to the coolers water block check USB Connection and restart application.
Remedy: Un-install the chiller software using Revo un-installer (need to get rid of all the leftover reg entries, program and user application data folders) here is the link product page http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_..._download.html or any other un installer you know. unplug the coolers USB Cable (fans should ramp up to max this is normal)
Power down your PC unplug the PSU power cable unplug the coolers USB cable from your mobo header now plug-in power to PSU and rebootNow insall the Chiller sofTware (latest version can be downloaded from the Antecs product page) now when select finish of the chiller software application install will see the panel to install the USB driver software. Power down PC plug the Coolers USB cable to the mobo header and reboot. Should now see tray icon install the USB driver. Start the chiller software and should now function OK
Suggestion by Antec support engineer:If you still have a problem whilst system running (if you are not confident then get someone with technical knowledge to do for you) unplug the coolers USB cable and replug back in start the chiller application should remedy the problem
Hope this helps for anyone who has this problem

I got a 920 and installed it yesterday (push/pull, oem fans). Reapplied AS5 to CPU (previously lapped) and cleaned the copper pump plate with alcohol before setting. Temps are easily 5-7c higher than my nearly-silent Thermaltake Big Typhoon tower air cooler. The pump gauge says it's almost maxed out and I have the fans set at ~1150rpm (so it's not silent but not noisy yet). what da hell? Luckily I still have the Big Typhoon - I may have to revert!

Did you clean both the pump plate and the cpu die before applying the paste?

yes of course, I figured it was assumed I had cleaned the CPU before reapplying AS5. thanks for checking, sometimes simple things can be missed.

Again, some more simple things (just in case ):
1. When you have heavy load (for example with prime in windows or stress in linux) does the radiator heat up?
2. Do the tubes heat up under heavy load?
3. Where in your case is your Kühler mounted?
4. Is the setup blowing the hot air in or out of the case?

I know they're stupid questions , but just in case.

No, that's what I'm hoping to find, a stupid error on my part that will make a huge difference.

1) I've been Folding so I'm talking about 100% load temps 65-67c (61c max on the Big Typhoon). I will check the radiator temp when I get home. But liquid temp reaches about 10c above ambient (28c ambient, 38c+ liquid as measured in Chill Control).
2) I will have to check the tubes, but I assume with a liquid temp of less than 40c they aren't getting hot.
3 & 4) Rear exhaust of my CM HAF 912 - one fan outside, rad and second fan inside, p/p blowing outside the case.

Just so you know, at 100% load, if you keep the Chill Control set on "Silent" the fans will not ramp up enough to keep your radiatior cool. Word to the wise: 1) drop the folding long enough to cool it down 2) set Chill Control for "Custom" 3) click the fan control and set it to where fans will ramp to keep the radiator to desired temps 4) watch the liquid temps as your folding and adjust fans as needed to keep cool.

It's time consuming, and more than likely, your not going to like how loud the fans have to be to keep it cool. This is why most people in here swap the fans for something quieter that keeps their radiator cool, like Gentle Typhoons. I know if I had the money to, I would do the same thing.
