Gonna try this with my outter fan probably tonight or tomorrow, since the outside temps are going to be cooler. This way Ambient temps wont make the Radiator temps shoot up while testing.

I live in Norway, so i just open the window and it takes 15 min and my room temp is around 0 degrees :-)
I tried what you sayed, but the problem whit the 620 is that you can only control the pump. And when going under 1000rpm its start making gurgling sound if you understand what i mean. tick tick tick tick... And from 1000-1400rpm, the fan doesnt change that mutch, pritty mutch going on full speed no matter what it seems.
So i think i will remove the stock fan, or perhaps put it in front of the case, and use 2 diffrent fans whit 3 speed lvls. And have the pump connected to the mb only, going on 1400rpm.

Ah, see, that is the difference, I'm running the 920, and 2 fans. 1 is outside, one in. I'll do some experimenting here in a few, gonna try it now, even though temp here in Eastern North Carolina, USA are in the lower 20's Celcius. Guess I'll find out REALLY quickbiggrin.gif

Great cooler by the way! 1.55/1.4 3.7GHz and it doesn't go over 50 degrees on max heat in prime 95 whit room temp on 24:cheers: 2( fans,push and pull)
What about the 920 and H100, how mutch better is it? And how mutch better is an high end custom water cooling system?
My first attempt on oc back in 1999 ended in a burned cpu, I think i put a jumper wrong and sendt way more power than it could handle. Things have changed seens then! lol

Yes it is ok. Yes, pump max rpm.
For example, my setup was as follows, using an ASUS Rampage III Formula mobo:

1) Pump - plugged into cpu fan header, with its bios automatic fan control disabled so that it gets full constant voltage so pump speed doesnt change. (In my bios it's called "CPU Q fan control" - disabled).

2) Fan(s) - push/pull - I had one fan each plugged into CHA_Fan1 and CHA_Fan3, so two fans - not plugged into pump.
On my mobo those two fans are not independently controlled - they share a single "Chassis Q fan control" automatic control - I disabled it in bios.
I then installed "SpeedFan" software and discovered that its "Speed02" sensor was able to control both the fans at once... worked out great.
I suppose I could have just left my bios "Chassis Q Fan control" enabled and let the bios control both the fans without using SpeedFan.
Or I could have done what you want to do, which is to use fans that have switchable speeds.

Thansk for the help! It actually lowered the cpu temp whit about 3-4 degrees whit using push pull whit the 620, not very mutch but it is something,hehe. Not bad to handle 1.55vcore/1.4 cpu nb @ 3.7GHz and never go mutch above 40 degrees on max heat in prime95,room temp on 22 degrees drunken.gif

yeah, tried the same thing, except the pump I keep connected to a molex plug, just to make sure the pump is running. Then I plugged the inside fan into the CPU fan header thinking it might would spool up like a AMD stock heatsink fan would, but it did not. Minimum temps I got with the inside fan plugged into the motherboard were 40C, which is well above what I wanted.

 

I could have set the CPU fan up in the HW Monitor section of Bios under Q-Fan to run a minimum of 50%, but that would be counter productive. I was stew-balling for quieter ways of cooling this. I guess for now, Asetek's Chill Control is best, though I'd rather it ramp based on Processor use instead of temps.

Noise, what is that to an deaf man? Its the temp that matters tongue.gif

being only partially deaf, noise does matter. The background noises like my fans totally block out all other sounds.

LOL! Thats a good point, I didnt see that coming,hehe.

I think i read something about someone who fixed their radiator in some way to improve temps. Any who has any idea of what i might be thinking of?
post #1369 of 6068
I have a Kuhler 920 and have a quick query about it. I have up till now had it positioned in the top of a Silverstone FT02 hanging horizontally. I have just purchased a TJ08-e to replace my FT02 and will therefor be hanging the unit vertically on the rear exhaust point.

My question is what is the general concensus on mounting the radiator? Should the water inlet/outlets be located at the bottom or the top or the radiator? Does it even matter? For neatness sake I'd like to place it with the inlet/outlets at the bottom so that most of the piping will sit along the floor of the case. Will this cause issues? Most WC setups seem to place so that the inlets/outlets are at the top but not sure if there is a reason for this.

Examples of what I mean below to save confusion:

Inlets/Outlets on Bottom

Inlets/Outlets on Top

Any advice is greatly appreciated thanks.

Mount your radiator just the way you want it, no diffrence:thumb:

Edit: But on the picture you have mounted the pump up side down:D But that shouldn't matter!
