Hopefully someone finds this useful.

But you might want to put into what 620 does whit pull/push, that would be interesting! Wondering what the diffrence between push/pull 620 vs 920. The latter will ofcourse win,but whit how mutch? thumb.gif

Whats up guys. Just snagged one of these for my 680. Just wondering how is the fan noise wise. Looking to keep a nice quiet system and want this fan to be fairly silent.

Hey lightsout, welcome to the Antec 620/920 crowd here. So now we have 2 computer components in common biggrin.gif I can tell you, if your going for silent, the stock fans probably won't be a good choice. Most people pair these with the Gentle Typhoons or similar. If you have the 920, you can set it for silent, but it will cool just as well as an air cooler. Basically depends on finding a happy medium of cool vs. quiet. Speaking of, if you have cool &quiet or intel equivelent on and you run via Motherboard pins, turn it off and set that pinout for 100% for pump to run full power. Personally, I found a Fan header to Molex plug to power my Pump, just so I know it's getting 100% all the time.wink.gifthumb.gif

I find the stock 620 fan to be particularly noisy. It's not an annoying noise per-say - not whiny but at the same time not a gentle 'whoosh' sound. I'm thinking of upgrading to some Gentle Typhoons but I believe that Noctua fans are the best for 'silent' setup? Not tried them myself though!

Thanks. I'm not looking for total silence but don't want it loud either. I grabbed an artic cool F12. Not the greatest rad fan but we wil see. I have some blademaster's which are good for rads but they are pretty loud. Didn't really want ot use them in this build.

I'm too cheap to spend $20 on fans. I know they are the best. But I just can never bring myself to do it.

You're probably best for going to straight "silent" fans, or very low RPM fans then. Or use a fan controller wink.gif

In terms of positions and number of fans, I like this article and it seems thorough and makes some decent conclusions: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/02/10/the-big-cooling-investigation/1
