On my new build i have the Kuhler 920.

There is this very low ticking sound . Nowhere near as bad as ome of the youtube vids i have seen.


Is it normal for the pump / radiator (not sure which) to make this sound or should it be 100% silent (just hear the whoosh of the fans)?



I contacted Antec and this what they said:
Quote:
Please make sure that you have no CPU FAN controller options enabled in your motherboard's BIOS. Then try to mount the pump with the hoses facing upwards to see if trapped air can be moved in the pump. Let me know how it goes.

This is what i replied to them:
Quote:
The options in my BIOS are

1.Cpu Fan Control mode - Auto, Voltage ot PWM (it is on auto)
2.CPU Fan speed control - Normal, Silent, Manual and Disabled(i have tried it on Normal and disabled)

My case is the Silverstone fortress FT-02 so the radiator is at the top of the case so the hoses face upward.


The sound is not that bad to be honest. It is more like a very low ticking sound but is noticeable and i read that it should be silent (no ticking)

Hello, I need to know the correct order in which I have to connect the hoses to the radiator waterblock and pump-tank, I have the antec 920 and am 'to change tubes and add a tank through.

I just bought Kuhler 620. It has a new mounting system, different than the one in the all Youtube videos and reviews. Blue colored plastic inserts have been replaced with black ones and screws are different etc. Can anyone with the new version give me tips about how to install this thing? Manual is confusing, it seems to skip some steps and doesn't even mention all the mounting hardware that is included. Radiator is already installed in the case, I just don't know how to mount the block. I'm typing this with my phone and don't have another computer so I'm kind of desperate to get my rig running ASAP biggrin.gif

It's pretty straight forward as far as mounting the pump to the motherboard. You have to remove the factory mounts from the motherboard, install the Kuhler mounts, (with the double sided strips of tape) screw the pump mounting ring down completely, then set the kuhler inside it. then loosen the mounting bracket until you can lift the bracket enough to twist the pump and it lock in place, then tighten the screwsin a cross pattern, (not too tight, just enough to hold it in place). Then plug the 3 pin plug into a fan header on your motherboard, (or to a fan header to molex adapter if you have one). now, making sure the USB plug is right, you want it to be plugged into a USB header with the plug on the top pins, and the pink wire to the left. Also, do not attempt to plug it into a USB3.0 plug, (since you have 2 on your motherboard I figured I should add that).

 

If you had the 920, I would tell you to turn off any energy savers for your fans, but I do not know how the 620 controls the fans. I think the best way to start the computer the 1st time is to make sure the radiator is higher than the pump to promote any air pockets that may be in the system to run to the radiator, not the pump. Also, allow for your system to be turned upright , and I think the best way to mount the radiator is with the inlet/outlet tubes lower to the ground, that way air can travel to the top and be caught at the top of the radiator, IMO. It may be noisey at first, but should quiet down with use.

 

With that, GL!thumb.gif

I don't recommend using the double sided tape. When you go to remove it, it will be like concrete after an extended time. Just hold it on there and get a screw started.

I kindda agree, NTM it sux if you have to RMA your motherboard, cause they won't frown on double sided tape being latched to the board. Been there, done that.

Yes I had a hell of a time getting the H50 tape residue off of my CHIV.

And said I would never do that again, then like an idiot did it on my P67 Evo with the rasa block. Ended up killing the board from my impatience and not getting a hair dryer to loosen it up. Broke a couple traces with a small screwdriver trying to pry the block off. Dumb move for sure. But sucked none the less.

I got lucky and a corner was lifted on each piece of tape on mine, gently pulled it down and back til it came off, then ever so gently wiped the resedo off with 80% alcohol. When I got the new board back from Asus I did not put that stuff back on. It was thick and bent the plastic backing anyways. I was seriously thinking of trying to use the factory metal backplate instead of it, but the screw threads were larger.
