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?
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.
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.
