The 4pin on the mobo? What sort of fan speed do you get? I haven't got my fans yet to try this but I'm freaking out thinking the RPM is going to be sooo slow because it's hooked up to a rad so it won't sense the temps on the PWM thing on my mobo.

Your over thinking it man. I plug them into my mobo. And I set the fan profile. It raises by the cpu temp. It doesn't sense the temp of the rad.

I use asus fanxpert which is great. When the cpu heats up the fan ramps up with it.

Perfect, and I can set the rest in the BIOS. I've just bought a lot of stuff for my revamp and keep reading up on it and doubting myself about if it will do what I want. Thanks for putting up with my blatant idiocy. thumb.gif

You can plug them into the pump and control them with the mobo, or the software... OR you can just plug them into the mobo and control it just from the BIOS or your MOBO software. Either way is fine if you configure it correctly in the BIOS. Don't worry about any "syncing" of fans just plug em in and let them go. I prefer to plug the fans into the pump on the 920 so I can have the option to ramp the fans with either the MOBO or the included Antec software.

@Ganja - You smoked too much ganja before installing mon!! Check and make sure you mounted the pump correctly.. check your fan RPMs in the included software or any software that reads CPU FAN speeds. The fans should operate between about 700 and 2500 RPM or so depending on CPU temps. If the fans are connected to your pump, make sure you go into the BIOS and diable any Q Fan Control or Smart CPU Fan or anything of that nature so that the Antec software can do its thing.

If you want to use the motherboard to control the fans, plug them into the mobo headers or the pump and enable Q Fan and then configure it in the BIOS to your needs.

The fans do operate at low speed, but still the temps are terrible at stock or overclocked. Even something as minor as 1.375v for a 1055T @ 3.9~ with fan speeds running roughly 1200 it idles at - 38c. All I'm using at the moment are the stock fans that came with the package.

As far as I can tell, everything is mounted right? On the first page of this club it mentions that the direction of the hoses don't matter - or do they? Mine CPU hoses are pointing toward the front of my case and the hoses on the rad are pointing to the bottom of my case. Screws are tight but not overly tightened, seems to me like there is excellent contact?

What's the deal? frown.gif

I would plug the fans into the motherboard but the length of the cords is like 4"... they don't reach and I don't have extensions. frown.gif

So I made a thread asking what the best fans are.... for this.

I should note - I changed the fan control in the software to 25c and 45c to ramp the fans up so it doesn't sit hot on idle.

Are you mistaking the coolant temp shown by the Antec software for the CPU temp?

If not, what is the coolant temp, and at what CPU temp?

Upload a screenshot running CPUID's HW Monitor and the Antec "Dashboard" tab at the same time on idle..

My settings are Ramp at 30 Full at 40 and my coolant sits around 34c on idle with ambient room temps about 72F.

You can mount the pump any way you want, I think the radiator can be as well but I mounted mine as shown in my album/avatar to the left here.. I prefer the hoses at the bottom, it ensures there is liquid always ready at the inlet. The pump doesn't matter what orientation, the radiator I would suggest tubes on the bottom.

Your temps are fine.. at 34C coolant my fans are 1200 RPMish. You're at 35C in the screenshot, and 1600RPM so you're on track there..

Your core temps are idling 23C, that's nice and low and the same idle as I have.

What's the matter?

Ignore the TMPIN0 and 1 those are the temps on the back side of the CPU.. on the socket. The cores are what needs to be kept below 60C, and run lower because they're in direct contact (almost) with the cooler.

As you can see in HW monitor, all of your cores are idling just as I'd expect.

What's the matter?

First off, 23c is unlikely to be a true reading. Add 15c to that and you get near socket temps. Socket is idling 38c, more representative of what it should be. Core temps on Phenom II supposedly don't even read accurately until the temps reach 45c... that's according to AMD.

So you're saying that idle temps at 38c on the socket are... normal? eek.gif

With my S1284 (Xiggy) in push/pull I was idling 32c at the same voltage and clocks. I just - I don't get it I guess. I'm guessing new fans, hooked up to the the motherboard (hopefully nice quiet fans that run quiet between 1500~2000RPM), will fix the issue.

I don't know... maybe I expected more? redface.gif
