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.

Well then, I guess I'd better hope that they don't notice that it's nice, flat, and shiny.

or, if they won't accept it, you can always bite the bullet and dissasemble it and find out what the problem is... HERE, this is the last time I'm linking a complete teardown of the 920, 620 should be similar. If you can't look at it and see how they did it, but you have the know-how to lap it, then your just being lazy, GOOGLE IT!

 

Sorry to be frank, but sometimes it's gotta be said.

I'm not sure if you're directing this at me or not, but I wasn't asking anybody for help with tearing it down. I'm fully capable of searching, although I do appreciate the link.

My earlier comment about not knowing it was possible to remove the copper plate on the 620 was said in somewhat of a different context that may have not been clear to others. I thought that the other guy was saying that people were removing the copper plate and then attaching the 620 to the graphics card without the copper plate. I was saying that I didn't know you could do that. But in retrospect, I don't think that's what he meant.

Are the 620's the only one with the noise problem? What about the 920?

and curious about temps on the 920, what do guys get during load with sandy bridges at around 1.4 volts ?
post #1535 of 6063
Never gotten it up to 1.4, I get a stable OC of 4.5 at only 1.25 volts. Folding that sits me at around 60c at most. Prime 95 I see about 65, but I have my ramp set pretty low.

And I never heard a single click, tick, knock or pop from my 920. Only thing is one of the fans gets a strange vibration sometimes but I just mess with the settings and go to silent back to custom and it goes away.

I can verify that the magnet thing works. But it kind of freaks me out because when you hold the magnet close, you can feel it vibrate, and although the rattling goes away, the pump sounds.. different. But it is much more silent when a magnet even gets close to it.

I wonder what exactly is going on, and if perhaps there is another way to fix it?

I have a Antec 920 on my i7 920, and got it stable @ 4GHz OC at 1.325v, with temps around 80C on full load with an RPM of about 1200 I think, very silent. When I crank the fans up to full speed, temps drop to about 67C, but the noise is not bearable.
I also have no idea how to set up chillcontrol, I'd like to test different RPM noise levels, but it's either Max RPM or a custom RPM that I can't seem to change...

In ChillControl, goto the third tab at the bottom 'Fan Control'. In the top section 'Liquid Temperature Fan Controls' are a Fan Ramp Start Temp and Full Fan Speed Temp. Note that these numbers are measured in the pump and they are the water temp, not CPU core temp.

Go back to your Dashboard tab at the bottom and look at the Liquid Temp in the top left quadrant. For example, mine is 31.4C right now. Now look to the right and see Fan Speed. Mine is 0660 RPM right now. The knob in the top right of the ChillControl window must be in the lowest position of the 3 in order to use custom settings (middle is Silent and highest is FULL OMG).

Back on Fan Control tab, I have set my Fan Ramp Start Temp at 31C which gives me no fan noise (~650rpm) and 35C CPU core (highest of 4) at idle/web browsing/simple stuff.

Now go push a heavy CPU load for a few minutes and get that CPU temp to rise. While you're doing that, go back to Chill Control's Fan Control tab and start playing with the Full Fan Speed Temp. Start high (around 45) and bring it down until you get the Fan Speed (back on the Dashboard tab) where you want it.

Tweak from there!
