May aswell add it for push/pull. My set up i have pushing as exhaust ( so fan against the case) and then pulling in from the inside (against the rad inside the case)

Depends on placement of the radiator TBH. If it up and away from the motherboard, (like some cases do) then you could pull it into the case just fine and get decent temps. Some people have enough room in there case to set it up in the top Exhaust hole, which is great for it to Exhaust out. My Setup, to keep good airflow, I had to add a fan for intake in the 5.25" drive bay to get airflow to my Northbridge, and set the radiator to exhaust, then flipped the top exhaust fan to a intake fan. Even doing this, I still get high temps inside my case with the panels on. Personally, I blame it on poor airflow design by the case manufacturers.

I just installed the 620 in my pc and for the time being I have the stock fan plugged into the pump and the pump plugged into the cpu fan header. However, the fan seems to running at 100% the whole time and it doesn't even speed up when I do a stress test. This means it is really noisy and pretty annoying. So have I got a faulty pump or is the voltage regulation rubbish anyway?
Thanks, James

Do you have the USB cord off the pump plugged in? If no, then plug it in. If yes, you have it plugged in upside down, take it out and turn it 180 degrees and re-insert.

The 620 doesn't have a usb cable, that's only the 920.

Have had a antec 620 for a while, Recently upgraded it to a antec 920.
The 920 was only 2C better then my 620 which had 2 fans in push/pull and lapped.
So I lapped the 920 and now its 4C better.

Any way here it is.

2X 620's cooling my gfx cards.
1X 920 cooling my cpu.

Same thing here and I'm pretty sure I installed and configured everything correctly. It's supposedly the pump's role to control the fan speed. Like I said here before, it's better to go on a push-pull config with two 1500 rpm fans. Plug the pump into a 3 pin fan header and hook the two fans via pwm y splitter cable to the cpu header. My guess is Antec/Asetek predicted most users will do this. Now, thinking of it, you say "then why didn't I buy the 920?" well turns out the fans aren't great on that one either and performance wise the 920 doesn't justify the difference.

What pwm fans aren't too expensive and are a good compromise between airflow and noise?

After a huge search on the internet I realized I need two 1500 rpm PWM fans. So, I just bought two Gelid 12 Silent PWM, they run 750-1500RPM. From what I understand they're basically discontinued but you can still get your hands on them. You just to have make sure you pick the model that comes with a 4 pin cpu fan connector and not 3 pin or a molex power connector.

I managed to get to this URL from a Google search, if you try to reach it from the current Gelid website you don't get to this page.
