I built my comp finally and the temps seem good so far. avg of 39 at load with stock i5-2500k.

couple things though, it was a pain to install, and the plastic screw holder kinda broke when i was screwing it in - still works fine though.

Need to get some screws to add my second kama flow2... I dont feel much air pushing through the rad with 1, but the temps seem low anyway.

How come you thought it was a pain to install, i thought mine was realy simple. And i did crack my plastic screw holders, but no big deal,didnt hurt and i have reinstalled this thing about a dozen times looking for the best cooling i could get. And to tell the truth, the stock fan wasnt bad at all, 81cfm,s plus 3.94 on static. but i,m useing 2 kaze 88cfm,s now. Works great.

I used washers to apply even pressure. Then firmly tightened them suckers down. I'll take a pic when I get home.

They were recycled washers from some old pc builds, fan screw washers specifically. They had the perfect spacing. When I tightened down I pushed the washer so it wouldn't break the tiny protruding clip and they all sat flush between clips and screw.

thats the rated spec of the antec fan? How did you find that out??

I might just use the antec fan then.

does this look right? something tells me the washers don't go between the rad and fan, am I right? silly me...



is 49-53 core degrees under p95 maximum heat/power consumption reasonable for stock clocks on a 2600K with this cooler?

only real complaint I have is why are the adhesive pads for the backplate double sided instead of single? I don't like glue on my motherboard...

edit: did I use the right screws in the right places? (H) mount the block/pump right? and (I) mount the fan/rad? the screws in pic 7 have me confused...

Hi all,
I am considering the 920, but have a few questions....

- Can it be used without installing the software ? (Don't care about noise control or the LED, just want great cooling. Full-blast is okay---since I'd use different fans likely on a fan controller.)

- Does the fan(s) have to be plugged into the pump ? (Or can the pump just run off the motherboard fan header and have the fans plugged elsewhere.)

I guess what I'm essentially asking is....can the 920 be hooked-up identically to the Corsair H70 ?
Thanks !!

You can plug the fans in wherever. The cooler won't spaz out.

And the washers don't go between the fan and radiator. They go between the screw head and case.

Thanks. I am actually more concerned about the pump acting weird. I don't want to use the software at all...just want the pump to run at 100% all the time. I am assuming that plugging it into a mobo power header will let me ensure that through BIOS settings.
As long as the pump is okay with doing it that way (and without ever touching the software) I'll think I'll be trying the 920 for my new rig.
