Oh ok. I've seen a lot about the 1850rpm Gentle Typhoons as well. They're only 3 pin fans but loads of people seem to be saying that they can barely hear them, even when they're at full speed. There's too much choice!

Just picked up a 920 for my Silverstone Raven 02 setup, have it set up in the top exhaust fan port. I am idleing about 4C higher then my Hyper 212+ but at the same time when I am folding on both my cpu and gpu i set only about 2C higher but a lot quieter. This is on a I7 2600K at 4.12ghz. What remains to be seen though is how this will do on a 12+hr folding bender. Ill update then.

I'm curious to see how cool my processor wil stay when I oc my 2500k to 4.5. Any ideas on what a good temp for that type of processor with my 620 will be? Since right now it's at 20c, I'm hoping 30-40c is this realistic?

it greatly depends on how much voltage you need to get to 4.5ghz.

but yes you should be able to do it easily with the 620. might need 2 good fans push and pull.

finally installed my 620 today and getting some nice temps. i had a ocz heatsink on there and was getting 34C at idle(at stock) and now im getting 26C. not bad for only $60.

finally came to install the gelid silent 12 pwm fans + bunch of other stuff and probably finish off my rig.

I must say the fans are doing a pretty good job and really run at their nominal speeds (750-1500 rpm). Also it looks like I don't really have to fiddle with the BIOS, the pump is conveniently plugged to system fan 1 header (close to cpu power connection) and runs @ 1400 rpm while the PWM settings remain on automatic and it's working a treat ! cap.gif

Btw, anyone knows the exact type of screws needed for the radiator? I got me 4 screws but they're not as nice as the stock ones.

Its really dependent on how much voltage as state above but also how much air flow do you have through your case. When i over clock i tend to not pump my voltage up very much, I use a mix of dynamic overclocking to hit a certain point then I push it just a tad farther. Then again this is on a 2600k which is more then enough for my needs at stock clocking. I don't have any experience with the 2500ks. If your room stays cool and your case has good flow i don't suspect you would be at idle much above 30c. Buy it from a place with a good return policy, if you don't like it or it doesn't meet your expectations and the retailer doesn't honor returns then they are not a store that needs our business.

Well.. colour me impressed! After my first 920 was DOA I was toying with the idea of a 620 with x2 Scythe gentle typhoons. In the end I decided just to go for the 920.
Since I had installed one previously and found it to be a complete PITA when still mounted in the case I took my motherboard out and installed it that way. Far easier and I got a much better install without the TIM getting messed up. First off I tried plugging the fans into my fan controller (30w per channel) unfortunately even though the controller can control fans down to 0rpm it couldn’t keep them at a low enough RPM for them to be silent. At first I though this must just be how they sounded. Anyway I then tried them with the software and they really are silent!

I tried a quick blast of intel burn and 4.5ghz and it didn’t pass 55C!! Very happy with that.
I then bumped the voltage and set it to 4.8ghz (first try at that speed as well). It passed 10 runs on low setting of intel burn with the temps being fairly similar. Highest being 60C I think, (my room is cold and the case has great airflow). I then did a 3D Mark 06 run and got 30400 points which I was happy with! Finally I set Intel burn test to max and set it to run.. it BSOD 101. So guessing slightly more vcore is needed. Also im running 1.65 ram at 1.55 on stock speeds and timing so may bump that up to rule it out. But all in all very very impressed. Max setting is nuts but its not really needed for everyday use. I set custom profile and had played a few games and it never got that audible but really kept temps in check.
So next up try to get 4.8ghz stable and then go for the big 5ghz biggrin.gif

Just use some screws that fits, should not be hard to find! I dont like to use 2 on eatch side, i like 4 on eatch side so i just found some olde screws that fitts,case solved:thumb:

Edit: Just be sure that you use the exact same size of the screws. You shouldnt have to force them in. You prob. know but you never know tongue.gif

I had a 620 originally then upgraded to a 920.
With the same fans and both lapped the difference was only 3C, But the 920 does have the advantage of better fan control, And it takes longer to reach max temp.

With out the 920 lapped the 620 was exactly the same (lapped, same fans)

Hey, Can anybody tell me which side port is the In and winch side is the out?

I was guessing when you hold the Kuhler with the logo towards you and the barbs / tubes facing bottom, the tube on the left is the intake / in?
