there will not be much of a difference. i have both. i prefer the water because i wanted yet another thing to mod, and that's all.

:teaching:Heres the way I see these quick Water-cooled setups:teaching.gif

They are basically a alternate means of transfering heat from one area to the next. the more open your case is with more airflow, the cooler your system will get, just like adding a larger heatsink, minus the weight and large area it takes up. This in turn is replaced by a large, almost if not more heavy radiator with the fancy option to be mounted somewhere to extract the air out of the the case, cool the fins, and push the heat out the rear of the computer.

The more compact the setup, the closer it is to vital parts, and you have just added a heater in your computer instead of a cooler. With my 920, I went as far as mounting one of my fans (dangerously) on the outside of my case, so that I could move my radiator further away from the Voltage cores and CPU water block, and saw a little better temperatures, about 3C. In a HTCP setup, I'm afraid it would be just not effective, if not worse than a standard heatsink. But, they make better heatsinks than stock too, that are rather quiet.

why is mounting your fan outside the case dangerous...? you succeeded in taking the final element out of the equation...internal case heat...so you did the right thing and lower temps would be expected. no more can be done at that point.
but i question your reasoning behind that. getting the radiator 1 more inch away from the cpu zone is not what made the difference...ambient heat will not warm up the water THAT much. you got your temps lower by moving your fan to the outside of the case where internal case temp is no longer a factor. it's a win-win regardless. just don't go reaching back there all willy-nilly!

the 1415 RPM you're seeing is the pump speed, not the fan speed. as long as your fan is hooked up to a mobo header with speed control turned off, then you're running the fans at full speed.

hello, i'm sorry about the question if this has been discussed before, but has anyone tryed mounting the 920 to the gpu? reason is that i'm building my own waterloop for the cpu and i thought i could save some $ using the spare 920, and if it works i'll get another 920 for my second gpu smile.gif

Hi

I had a CM Hyper 212 Plus. Changed over to the 920 and experienced about a rough 5 degrees celcius drop on my i7 2600K (stock) using the same CM SickleFlow's that I had on the 212, now on the 920.

The results I guess depends on the chassis, the airflow setup etc .

If you still want to stick with aircooling, maybe you can also look at the new Hyper 612's?
