Sorry, I see what ya mean with the 620 vs. the H70. I should have been clearer.
I was meaning putting 2 identical fans on the 920 and then also on the H70, and seeing how it does.
(Not overly impressed with the noise output some reviewers have found with the 920 fans at max power.) I'm mainly thinking if something like a pair of Gentle Typhoons 1850's would be a nice setup on the 920 ?

Hey guys. Been looking at these since they came out and may finally splurge to buy them.

I currently have the Zalman 9700 and it is pretty loud even while undervolted and stock speeds and on silent settings... How quiet is the Kuhler 620??
~$59 is not bad if this will whoop my zalman and be quieter.

Plus I don't like to have a pound+ of metal hanging off my mobo.

At full speed it is the loudest computer component I've ever owned, easily.

I wish I could post more impressions (especially on overclocking and stress testing), but somewhere along the process of installing the Kuhler and a Scythe fan controller I must have damaged the PCI-E slot I use for my second vid card. Once I had the case all back together and ready to go BIOS kept reporting the card wasn't present (I swapped them around and the cards are fine), so off it goes to RMA land.

If your looking for specs on the 620 or how it performs or compares to any others-just page back 1 or 2 or 3 pages-i have been listing everything i can find on the 620 since that is the one i run, and i will say this, i have used a lot of coolers over the years-if you buy these you wont be disapointed. And yes all reveiws have said the 920 on highest speeds can get a bit noisey-but come on folks, its part of over clocking-and a choice you have too make.

I installed my kuhler, 920 but the software doesn't detect the usb connection, and there might be a wet leak, fans keep getting moist, but when I had my other mobo I had it oc'd at 4.3 ghz stably at 27-32c idle and 54-57 100% load.

That sucks. I am going to install mine today hopefully, I am wary of running into leaks of any kind. Did anyone here with an MSI Big Bang Xpower have to bend their cpu power (8-pin) cable to fit the radiator and fans for a Kuhler 920? That's the biggest hurdle for me right now. Thanks.

With theses type of coolers yes on most mobos the 12v 8 pin connectors do pose a bit of a prob, same on my case when i had my 620 mounted on the rear of my case. but i mounted it in the top and got better temps any way-so prob pretty much solved,but some can not. Just becarefull on bending thoses pin connectors, if possible get an extension plug and run the connectors up behind your mobo and over the top if you have room between your right side case panel and ofcource a hole or slot above your mobo. You can make a better bend that way in the wires.

The problem is that I was going to keep my 200mm top fan as the only source of exhaust. If I ran the Kuhler 920 in the top I wouldn't be able to exhaust as fast with the rear 120mm spot. Should I be looking for a new case, or is there yet another alternative?

I have a local MC with the 620 in stock... and I do have ap-15s I wish to do a push/pull config on.. so this setup is run by software..or can it be hardwired to run at 100% at all times...haven't seen the answer to this yet
