are these really almost as good as a h70?

and does anyone know what TIM comes pre-applied on these? and how is it compared to other compounds?

920>h70/620>H60>H50

TIM should be Shin-Estu. Asetek used them for the Hydro series

Hey guys.

I've recently built a PC with the Kuhler 620.
I was impressed at how quiet it was then a day later its noisy as hell. I did some inspecting and it appears to be the fan, if I stop it with my finger the system is near silent.

Its almost like the fan is running at full speed all the time, nothing else in my case is as loud.

I've been running it push/pull with the Antec fan on the chasis and a Xilence Red wing 120mm on the CPU Side of the radiator and the Xilence fan is near Silent.

Got the Kuhler plugged into the Cpu_Fan header, Antec fan connected to the Kuhler. Xilence fan running off of Sys fan_1

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm a bit confused. Could something be wrong? I can't say i've read that the fan is loud, thought its speed was varied by the kuhler. My temps are 29-35C idle @4.5ghz oc'ed so it can't be running fast to combat the temps.

Cheers
David

No ideas yet?

Anyway I figured I need to get two matching fans and possibly control them via a controller.

As this is a thread of Kuhler users could anyone reccomend a good fan or two that compliment the Kuhler near perfectly? I'm thinking quiet as possible but still moves enough air to let the Kuhler work to its best.


Thanks guy
David

Well, not sure if this will help you or not, but as far as the stock fan that comes with the 620, i,m very impressed with it, it has great air flow, nice static pressure and i think is pretty quiet on full speed. If antec would have had ones to sell at moment i would have bought a second. But,To each his own on noise factor ofcource. If you want to put out a few bucks, the gentle typhoons by scythe are a good choice, other wise, cooler master r4,s put out some great air-and cooled mine pretty good, but now i,m useing the scythe kaze 88cfm fans and i realy like them alot, but if your going to get a controler you do have other options depending on what you want to spend, i,m moveing up once again to the kaze 110 cfm fans, becuz newegg has a great price on them.

Realy depends on how much wind noise your willing to deal with.

My new fans are coming today-will see if i get a bit more cooler with them.

One more thing, i would stay away from SilenX fans, for the amount of money you pay my oppion is they are way over priced, i have 120x 25 72cfm and the 120x38 90cfm, for just a case fan to move air sure, but not worth the money unless there %50 off.

I am thinking about getting the 620 and wanted some input on how my airflow would be, my case is an Antec p183 and it has filters on the front that keep the dust out and they do a pretty good job actually so I would prefer to keep using them as intakes, which is why I want to try having it pull 1st to see how it works compared to my fan setup, then try the attached picture base on the feedback that I get here if I don't have that great of a performance.

Thanks,

K

Hi,

I'm looking at buying either the 620 or the 920 (still undecided atm) and have 2 questions that I'm hoping someone might be able to answer.

1) Can the fan adaptor on the 620 handle running two fans or would it be better to run them from a fan controller?

2) Has anyone tried two Gentle Typhoon AP-15's (1850rpm model) on either heatsink? Seeing as the GT's cap out below the speed of the stock fans on the 920 but still have high static pressure I am thinking I will be running two of these in push/pull.

Thanks.

Hello,the fan adapter might beable to run 2 fans, but i would not,for the fact on the 620 it was desighned with only one fan in mind. The 920 comes with 2 so that one prob would be fine, my oppion is though, with all the options one has with mobo fan headers and extra power connectors on your psu and with installing fan controlers why chance it, devide your power draw up as much as possible is the best any way.

And the gt,s are great fans yes, but you might want to wait befor buying, the fan i got with my 620 is pretty dam good, yes i swaped it out for the kaze modle with a push pull config, but only becuz antec did not have the fan that came with the 620 for sale. Here are the stats for the fan on the 620, static pressure is pretty good. And all i can say about the noise on the stock fan is that it is not bad considering the specs and what it does,and just fyi, when you plug it into the mobo, the speed reading you get is from the pump not the fan.


Fan for 620



Bearing Type: Sleeve

Rated Volt: 12.0V

Rated Speed: 2,000rpm +/-10%

Max. Air Flow: 81.32 CFM

Max. Static Air Pressure: 3.394 mm-H2O

Noise Level: 27.36 dBA (Max.)

Really? Dang I got much better temps after applying AS5. Maybe they just put too much on at stock.
post #140 of 6068
Me too, i use as5 and my temps dropped by 5c. I wasnt at all impressed by the stock tim. But i,m sure it is the way it is applied, becuz it realy is great tim. And i have read from others that have used the h50 and h70, the same thing once they reapplied tim from the stock,better temps and its the same tim they use on corsair and antec liquid cooled.
