The 620 is not run by software-the 920 does come with software. But it doesnt matter you can run all fans any way you want-on fan controlers-or just hook them up to the fan headers on the mobo-or straight to your power supply, you dont even have to use the fan connection that is on the 620, just plug the pump into the cpu pin connection on the mobo-works fine.

I dont use my fan connection on my 620 becuz i dont have too-more than enough connections in my system-that way i figure less power running through the pump houseing. I have 2 kaze 88cfm,s as my push pull.

Hey guys,

I picked up the 620 and I love it! I'm noticing some extra pump noise - somewhat of a clicking sound. From the looks of it based on responses from earlier in the thread, others are having this problem as well.

I've re-seated, gently shaken, and even re-positioned the cooler but I'm still getting this noise from the pump. Would it be best to take it back to where I purchased it (Micro Center), or contact Antec?

Thanks!

Hey, I'm about to install the 620 on Wednesday most likely. What do you guys suggest for case fan setup if I'm gunna run the 620 radiator as rear intake?

I've attached my current fan setup.

After installing the 620 I was also thinking about putting my current rear exhaust fan as a 2nd front intake. What you guys think?

quick background, my old motherboard died about a month and a half ago, just got my new computer running last night... and i just nearly fried it

i noticed about 3 days ago that when i installed the Antec H20 water cooler, i had the fan flipped around the wrong way, so that instead of 2 fans in my case, both pulling at the back, i had a fan sucking in fresh air in the back, and pushing it out about 4 inches away, poor cooling situation

Today i decided to fix that, i flipped that fan around, so i had air moving through my case better, and turned my computer on, and i was getting beep codes, and no display...
After swearing at it for a good 15 minutes, i realized that i had my monitor plugged into the wrong DVI port. feeling sheepish, i corrected that, and was awarded with my moniter coming alive. however the trials and Tribulations were not done yet.

once windows loaded, i found another problem, my USB devices wern't working, i had to unplug and re plug them in several times before i could type or move my mouse. clearly something was still wrong, as everything moved at a glacial pace. i was getting a little scared at this point, and then i entered the BIOS

First thing i noticed that everything was going REALLY slowly, so slowly that in fact you could see the screen refreshes, and the mouse jumped around the screen. i started to poke around the BIOS and knoticed that it was reporting that my CPU was at 97 degrees celcius!!!

for some reason, when i flipped the fan around, the fan stopped working! i slammed off the computer, ran to my parents computer, and tried the fan there, where it worked.

i took it back, and held the fan to the heat sink, and turned it back on, immediately i noticed a rush of hot air coming from it, and then the air cooled down to a reasonable temperature.

i screwed everything back on, and turned on the computer. now that the CPU wasn't near 100 degrees, it ran fine!

the moral of this story? check that the fan is spinning on your CPU cooler whenever you do anything to it.

when in doubt... mail antec!

i have found that they are REALLY good with their RMA's, if it comes to that, and every time i phoned them, i got put strait through to a human within 10 seconds of phoning them!


good luck with the problem

Yes-i did have a clicking sound also with mine that bothered me, but it did go away after a couple days.I preodered mine and have had it since march. I do like it alot. if you want to know what tim is on the cold plate and specs on the fan, look back a couple pages i listed it, both are great.

Fyi-best temps i got were going through the top of my case-dropped mine 2c from the back. aslso lapped my cold plate and cpu, gained another 2c and cools faster and temps remain more stable.

Mine isnt going away, Ive had it for two weeks now, Ive pulled the whole unit out, re-instelled it, and its still clicking so theres something wrong with it.

The one on my second rig, is super sillent and its a good product, would just like some faster responds from Antec, but maybe its because I live in Europe
