Will be keeping all these fans in mind as my College Grant money comes in. The Antec fans are fine, as long as you keep them on quiet. But, when overclocking, you can't do thatrolleyes.gif

I don't want my computer sounding like a vaccum cleaner. Reason why I want to change the stock fans. I would really like the get Noctua's new PWM fans, but they're pricely. =[

You can keep it quiet, depending on what you're doing. At 100% load, if you're trying to keep temps below 60F on an i7, yes it needs to move a lot of air and it's going to make noise. At partial load or infrequent full load spikes, you should have no trouble keeping it both under 60 and quiet. The water draws away some of the heat spike's temperature rise so it won't necessarily jump from 35C to 65C in an instant like on air. That shock is better absorbed by recirculating water.

I've been folding 24hr/day for the last 3 or 4 days.
i7-2600K@4.4GHz 1.33V
Antec Kuhler 920 stock fans
Antec CC Fan ramp start 31C (liquid temp)
Antec CC Fan ramp full 41C (liquid temp)
EVGA GTX 570@850MHz 1.0V

The GTX 570 is much louder than the Kuhler. CoreTemp is reporting 58/59C on the highest core and the room is 26C ambient. Antec CC spinning the fans at 1250RPM and liquid temp 35C using the above fan profile in Custom mode.

When I stop folding the fans drop to 500rpm as the CPU idles and it is completely inaudible. When playing BF3 or SRTT it is completely inaudible. I also generally change the Antec CC Fan ramp full to 43C when not Folding or expecting long periods of full CPU loads.

The stock Antec fan is not bad considering how much air it moves. Even at full blast, it still is much quieter than other fans I have used in the past.

I have it cooling my i5 2500k that is crunching for Boinc 24/7 and it is not too loud in my small apartment

IDK, with the Kuhler 920 after about 1600RPM, it just seems like you get turbulance between the 2 fans. Either that, or the holes in the fan slot on my case can't push that much air through them, which is probably the case.

hey, just for the people that have tinkered in this, got a very good question:

 

When you install the drivers/'4-pin USB plug, do the drivers bypass the motherboards ability to throttle the CPU according to it's onboard CPU Load calibrations? What i was thinking is I would much rather it actively controll the fans by load, not temps of the Liquid in the cooler. Therefore, what I was going to do was take the 3-pin Fan plug off the CPU 4-pin fan header, and put it on another header. Then, buy one of these Splitters and connect them to the CPU fan header. My thoughts are doing this will put my radiator fans ramping with CPU load like the stock cooler, therefore giving it even cooler temps.

Can anybody please tell me the correct hose size I need if I were to do one of those swiftech mcres micro reservoir mods. does it fit right out of the box or do I need to purchase barbs with it? headscratch.gif I was looking at ths guide http://www.electronicspub.com/article/23/2/Corsair-H70-mod-guide.html - its for the H70, but it mentions I need extra barbs / fittings?

This guy added a radiator to his setup. My suggestion, find somewhere inline for a drain tube as well. His is in a Lian-Li A05N modded case, so the reservoir is kindda low in the system. It makes for draining to be a pain. You could try talking with him to see what you would need.

Hi, I have my antec 620 connected to CPU_FAN, but can be connected to chasis_fan pump connector?

thanks..
post #1310 of 6068
Hi Guys

I am getting my scythe GT14 tomorrow and was wondering if I should swap my Antec 620 fan for this one or add it in a push/pull config with the antec?

If push/pull is best which one pushes and which one pulls biggrin.gif

Is the scythe GT14 very quiet compared to the Antec fan?

Any advise?

Thanks
