When I first bought my 620 it made the clicking noise everyone is talking about. All I did was shake the pump and res then install. Then I laid my pc down with the antec logo on the pump facing down and turn on your pc. I tried this and the clicking noise went away within 20 seconds. Hope this helps anyone.

I tried your suggestion, still have the rattling. Thanks for the idea though.

So it sounds like the magnet needs to stay there in order for the fix to work. I'm not really ok with that, as not only are the aesthetics terrible, but it takes up more space as well. However, would it be possible to tape or secure the magnet to the inside of the pump cover? Has anyone taken that cover off? I'm just curious. I'm sure I'd probably have to dismount the pump and take out all the screws on the cooler head to do that, and I might as well just RMA it. Just a thought.

I would RMA the cooler. If your tried all the fixes and are still having problems I would say you have a defective cooler. My Antec 620 makes no noise.

I will. I wonder if antec would repair it and send me the same one back so I don't have to lap it again? I have a feeling that the rma process is going to take painfully long...

haha who knows. I wouldnt put it past them. I wasnt sure they would accept the RMA if the copper plate has been lapped or modified. Idk how their RMA policy works though. I hope you can get a new one. That noise would drive me insane!

did you notice enough of a temp difference when you lapped the copper plate? Did you remove the bottom of the cooler or did you leave in attached when you lapped?

Well, I lapped the plate AND removed the IHS at the same time, so I can't tell you how much difference the lapping in and of itself made. But altogether, I am running 7 degrees cooler under heavy load. I didn't even know people were removing the copper plate on the 620! Is that what you meant?

There are two components that are touching each other. The Antec cooler, and the IHS (integrated heat spreader) of the graphics card.

You can lap the surface of the cooler, and remove the IHS (which is part of the graphics card). But I don't think you can remove the bottom of the cooler.. If you can, I haven't seen anything about it on the forums here. What is even underneath it?

I was just talking about lapping the cooler. Yah there are several torx screws that hold that copper plate onto the cooler. I wasnt sure if it was possible to remove the copper plate. Figured it would be easier to lap the copper that way..

Ive done a little bit of lapping but still nervous to do that on my main rig. I would mess up that one time lol.

It can be done, look through the 1st thread under the 920 reviews section, click on xsreviews. In that on the 3rd page they completely disect the pump of the 920. The 620 shouldn't be too much different, not as good copper plate, not so great impeller, but same deal.

Hum.. I may be wrong, and I hope I am, but you might get problem whit rma your cooler. They have stated ceveral times that 0 modding of the units will be acepted.
And when you lapp it, it is possiblility for you to hurt the cables etc in the proces ( im not saying you have done it, but the averge computer user might not be that carefull when doing it, ending up hurting the radiator,cables or pump) so dont be supprised if they turn down your rma request, I think they have a no mod policy.

I may be wrong, but that is how I understand it. In norway, we got great customer rights, I would have destroyed the warenty by lapping it. And we got 5 years warenty on cell phones,printers ( to pixelmanias great frustration,hehe) etc, but every right disapear out the window if you start modding it. And there it is an 0 room for error, arg cant find the word im looking for, but they have stated 0 aceptence for moding because it would be hard to find a silverline of what to acept on every product.
