620 will be fine.
I used one for 6 months 24/7 when bit coins were worth mining.

If anything the 24/7 use would be better for it since your not getting some much thermal expansion because it will always be around the same temp.

Got my 620 yesterday! Running SOOO WELL on my GTX560!
450
450

I'll take 45C max on a GPU anyday. 35C in BF3...ha! yea! Love the build quality of the 620. So legit! Def worth it

Can anybody tell me which barbs / fittings I need to add the swiftech microres to the Kuhler 920/620 please?? It needs to fit the microres and then the tubing that would fit to the antec pump.

Give me some links or something or if anybody has any? I am all confused with the size, ID, 1/4 or 6mm or whatever i need.

Well I got my answer and placed my order guys. This page on the Asetek website was all I needed to see to be reassured. If they are all tested via helium leak detection before they leave the factory than that should remove all but the tiniest of chances of a leak out of the box. Then the fact that the tubing is designed for low permeability and the entire unit is tested for durability and claims to be rated for over 5 years of 24/7 use makes me feel much safer in using these. The Asetek representative I wrote too also mentioned that their coolers are now used in very expensive mission critical servers, so I suppose they are good enough for my folding rig. I would suggest adding the Asetek reliability page to the OP of this thread as I'm sure that would be information potential buyers would like to know. Thanks for the opinions and information from people here and especially from Asetek.

Just remeber that a leak has occured if I am not misstaken. Think to remeber reading about that, and ruined the gpu, and he got an new gpu and cooler. Not sure if that was given to him by the store where he bought the items, or by antec them self, but my impression was that anetc was the one who covered it. Same whit corsair, heard of them actually covered damage done by leaks, if I am not misstaken there as well,hehe.

Some complain about the sound they make, but if 30 db isnt an issue it is a great cooler

they take alot of air out, but they do not turn the pumps on, therefore the pump itself has a air pocket. The litte bit of air in the system is good though, allows for expansion of the liquid, due to a lack of a reservoir for that. What it is not good for is mounting the radiator in wierd positions, say, laying flat on the floor of a case with the barbs sticking straight up.... that may air-lock your pump in the CPU block.

 

Personally, I want my radiator as high up in the case as I can get it, and as far away from the motherboard as I can, that way by chance if any air goes through the system, the radiator traps it, not the pump. Thought about cutting the top of my case and building a shroud to go over it, so I could mount the radiator outside my case. I'm kindda missing my old Antec NSK 4450B case, the top panel slid off, then both side panels slid up. Sadly though, it wasn't up to modern computer specs.

they could have added a silicone (or w/e durable and flexible material) chamber that does all the expanding and contracting.
i hope all the next gen self-contained water cooling systems will have zero air inside...

I don't think they will ever be 100% w/o air pockets; that would require turning the pump on, which takes time to power up every pump that goes through production. The whole point of these things is a low cost solution to liquid cool. Now, what I would 2nd is a possible fill plug being installed on like the radiator or something like that, but that would only be for a long time use, warrantee void if open thing. This would allow people to check to make sure it is full. Either that, or a small reservoir to make them servicable. Kindda like something that could be mounted either above  it or maybe in a 5.25" drive bay... simly to make sure there aren't any leaks, or levels dropping to low.
