Thanks.

Yeah my Silver Arrow is pushing up against the window on the side of my case, and its flexing out which i'm not happy with. And because of my ram I have to run it pull/pull and I had to give up my rear 120mm exhaust fan because of this. A 920 might just work better for me.

one question.
how much better is the 920 than 620 when both are equipped with GT-1850's in Push-Pull??
i am thinking of buying two GT-1850's for my 620. am wondering if it is OK to upgrade to 920 at the same time. i can get the 920 for around $70.

but do you think changing the tubes and adding to my tank 920 as did many people in this thread the temperature increase? even if only slightly?

Ymmv of course. On paper the sa should be a little better. If your running your sig clock the 920 will handle it no problem.

Stock fans are supposed to be pretty loud. I can't say though I never used them.


What do you guys think about stacking rads? I have the 920 in push pull on my cpu. Was thinking of putting the 620 on my gtx 680. I was thinking of putting the rad at the back of my pull fan on the 920.

Asl long as this wouldn't kill my cpu temps I think the gpu temps would still be much better than on air.

Just picked up the 920 for $80 on Newegg using promo code "EMCYTZT1515"

I'm more of a fan of air cooling usually but I need a better cooler, I'm not paying for a new case right now with a cutout - and I won't be able to attach a big air cooler to my motherboard and still access all of the motherboard mounting screws in my case - I can hardly do it with my 92mm CM N-520 as it is!

Hopefully this will let me push my 960T a few MHz higher, or at least keep it a bit cooler when playing BF3 on those really hot days smile.gif

Simple enough question. the 920 has a larger radiator (thicker), and comes with 2 fans instead of 1 (for push/pull), and also has software to control speed of the fans, without changing speed of the pump. The Pump on my 920 stays between 2520-3100RPM, where the 620 is controlled via what you tell it to run in BIOS/speedfan, ETC, usually nowhere near the water movement of the 920. Yes, at the peak of the fans, they scream very loud, but they move alot of air. There is a sacrifice for air/noise, you want one or the other, quieter fans will not move as much air through the radiator in a Push/pull config, (GT's or others exception.)

So you suggest keeping the 620 and getting jut the gt-1850's? I will definitely have to buy new fans for the 920 if I get one. So any other fan other than the stock fans would make it less efficient ha?

So I want to run 2 blademasters off of this in PWM. How do I go about doing this? I have several fan PWR header on my board but only one PWM. The power connector for the pump is only 3 pins and I have it plugged into my 4pin PWM header. If I try to switch it to a simple 3pin PWR header, I get an error that won't allow me to boot up. What gives?
