Oh, I just had a thought then. We are still thinking of going liquid water tubing if we still go a head with Antec Nine Hundred Two v3 Case or have it in the Antec Twelve Hundred v3 Case instead. We have NEVER done liquid water tubing before, so it's new to us.

Thanks again, Anthony. Have a great year every one!

Hello All and Happy New Year.
New to the forum, love these coolers.

I just upgraded from a Kuhler 620 to a 920. The 620 had been configured as push-pull and I controlled it using SpeedFan. Now for the 920 after overcoming a USB/install issue I'm using Chill Control and find that I really miss the ability to also just set the fan speed myself (hint, hint Antec).

Also, although my CPU is lapped, in the past I never did the cooler. Now that I've actually checked both the coolers I've found them to be fairly convex (raised in the middle).

Has anyone successfully lapped one of these coolers without taking them apart? No panic, just wondering.

Hey guys! I am thinking about buying the 920 but I'm wondering if it will fit in my NZXT Phantom case. I want to mount it in the top back of my case in a push pull config.

Having one fan outside the case and have the rad and pull fan inside the case. But I wanna make sure I still have room for the top 200mm fan and the side 200mm fan.

Any information much appreciated!

I don't know about the Phantom, but from what I've seen in my Guardian, and with other NZXT cases, they usually allow for the top fans to be mounted with a large fan in rear. But, I have heard from reviews that the top fan is a NZXT specific design screw pattern, and if you want to put a second one in the top, you will either have to make a custom bracket, or buy one from NZXT.

 

Putting one fan on the outside may help, since the size of the radiator is fairly large, and will mount directly above the VRM's. My suggestion though, take a glue stick, rub the washers that they include with the kuhler on it, then stick the screws in the fan holes and press the washers on the fan til they stick. This will give enough clearance for the fan to be on the outside, since the fan hole sticks out a little. also, not real sure where the fan will hit the case, but if its like my Guardian, you will either have to shave the side panel, or the fan. I chose the fan, since it won't shine bright if it's shaved.

Love the rigs guys. Haven't added my own pic yet since installing over a month ago. Here it is with the room lights on. All blue LEDs, but the yellow CFL bulb overhead plays tricks with long exposures.

Hey guys, just so you know, Akasa has put out a new PWM fan with specs of 600-1600RPM.

http://www.akasa.co.uk/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Fans&type_sub=PWM%20Control&model=AK-FN064

I'm thinking of buying 2 for push pull on a kuhler 620. I will then connect the pump to a 3 pin socket and use a pwm splitter for these 2 fans. Should work a treat and I think 2 x @ 1600 rpm will do the trick instead of 1 blowing @ 2000 rpm.

Tell me what you think smile.gif

Anyone know of a good PWM fan I should I get?

What you need for the Kuhler are two 4 pin (cpu fan socket) fans. This one has pwm function via molex power connector, not the most ideal I think. :|

You're saying these two Scythe fans (~ 1300 rpm each) give same performance (i.e., temps) as the stock antec fan?
