Got my Kuhler H2O 620 and am liking it alot. Only complaint is the anoying clicking sound coming from the pump. Turned the pump upside down and the clicking stopped. not sure if I will bring it back to Frys and get a different one. Here are some pics of it in my In Win Dragon Slayer, set up with push/pull using some cheap coolermaster blue LED fans.

I really don't think these setups like the radiator being lower than the pump, that's just my oppinion. I've never ran mine like that, but I've never got the clicking, or the failures of them like everyone else seems to be getting when the mount the radiator lower like that. There were a couple that actually mounted it like that and it worked, but they changed the water lines, and added a Reservoir to it, voiding their warrantee.

And it probably dropped the temps of my Voltage Regulators too, but I have no way of telling.

Reading through this thread, trying to find the best way to settup my h20 620. What do you use now?`Seems that you have tried some vari.biggrin.gif
And how do you monitor liquid temps on a h20 620? Possible?

Back to the fans, are you using 1 push inside the case and 1 pull outside the case, and having the topp fan blowing inn?

I initially set my H20 with the rad on the roof of my dragon slayer case with the stock fan. The temps went down from my zalman air cooler but the H20 was to loud for me. I tried several different setups trying to find the best noise/performance. I tried front mounted rad with enermax magma pushing air through the rad, very loud and minimal improvement over stock (Idle temps approx 33 degrees Celsius, load temps in the low 60 degrees Celsius). I tried top mounted rad with Nautua NF-P14 pulling air through the rad, this set up worked really well and was very quiet (idle at 30 degrees Celsius, load at 58 degrees Celsius). I tried front mounted rad with NF-P14 pushing and NF-P12 pulling, this set up worked the best and was quiet at full load and almost silent at idle (idle at 27 degrees Celsius, load at 50 degrees Celsius) . Unfortunately I need those fans for my main computers NH-D14, and the cost of purchasing these fans is high. I ended up using push/pull with the rad mounted in the front of the case and two coolermaster 120 blue led fans in push pull 9idle at 28 degrees Celsius, load at 53 degrees Celsius). The temps I get with this setup is only 3 degrees higher then with the Nauctua fans and are very quiet. These tests were done on two separate days and i did not measure the ambient temrature however, I live in an area where the temperature does not fluctuate very much and my office is always about 21 degrees Celsius.

I'm stuck between the 620 and the H70. I like the warranty Cosair has and cant find out much on Antec. What kind of warranty does Antec provide? What's the fail rate?

The Antec 620 has a 3 year warranty and the Corsair H70 has a 2 year warranty.

Antec has been very easy whit just sending a new 1 if you got problem whit it. Great brand
post #1398 of 6063
So mine arrived today, spent ages fitting it, plugged in... and wow what a noise. Sounds like the pump is knackered! So an RMA's Vertex and a Antec H20 920 all in one week! Sad times!

On the plus side while making my PC it seems my new 2500k is pretty decent and my 560Ti is a bit of a beast! Looking forward to getting it back so I can plumb for 5ghz!!

All of mine ones had made a bad clicking for the first 6-12 hours use, And all of them are perfectly silent now (have 3 of them)
Its just the air bubbles moving out of the pump.

With the 620, you'll need to get a temp probe of some kind, the 920's temp monitor is built into the pump housing. Like I said b4, mine is the 920.

 

Yeah, thats how I have it setup right now, but I'm still getting much warmer temps than I want. I think this is the cases fault, not the kuhler. This case was made for old LGA778 setups with air cooling, and the watercooling outlets added later. Not a good liquid cooled setup. I can tell ya right now, the stock Antec fan on the outside of the case is deafening above 50%. Once I get funding I'm getting Either the NZXT Tempest or the NZXT Guardian. I would go Antec, but meh, I really just don't like the styling of their full size cases. That and price/quality ratio.
