How should i mount it properly to avoid any air bubbles? I see alot of different opinions so i am confused what the correct way is to prevent any air bubbles to get into the pump and making fish tank noise.
Thanks

You can mount it any way you like... the hoses can go any which way coming from the pump.. The radiator can be mounted with the hoses coming out the top, or the bottom - I suppose sideways would be fine too, but you wouldn't be able to mount the radiator that way in most cases anyway. There isn't much air in these systems and air won't get into them because they're closed loops and maintenance free - so no way for air to get in. Any air that's in there from the factory will find a place to sit in the radiator once the system runs for a few minutes. You may hear noise from the pump for the first minute or so of operation - if it continues past that just check and make sure that the pump is running at 100% or 3,000 RPM on the 920. I don't know anything about the 620, really - but the pumps make noise if they're running too slowly.

I think that's misleading to other members..

Maybe I got a bad batch or something, but the screws were not long enough to be used even with the supplied washers. This has nothing to do with my case. And if they are the standard sized screws, then they should consider lengthening them. What would it hurt to have screws go further into the heat sink anyway? It would be more secure for everybody, and far easier to install.

I wrote Antec and gave them this feedback.

You don't need the washers, the heads of the screws are big enough not to pull through on any standard case. Take your washers off, mine went unused also. They're only needed under very specific circumstances.

I agree the screws should be about 1mm maybe 2mm longer... just didn't agree that Antec "didn't provide the necessary hardware" that's all.

Hey guys, I just bought mine today from Best Buy in Santa Rosa, CA. When I opened the box I first read the manual. When I started lifting the product out of the box, I noticed moisture beads in the plastic bag around the pump. The liquid smellsand feels oily. I don't know what to say other than I'm hesitant about exchanging the product for another one. I'm not even going to try to install this in my machine. Has anyone else experienced this? 450450

Not a common issue - read through this thread and you won't find much like that to the best of my knowledge... The oily smell is definitely the the coolant. Switch it out for another, or buy a different product if you feel as though it's the design itself that is to blame. After having a sibling who worked for Geek Squad at Best Buy for a short while, I'd blame Best Buy - lol.

I'm very happy with mine, it seems very well built and I have no worries whatsoever that it will leak, but mine showed up in one piece!

Never seen that before. Just exchange it. Stuff happens.

I'll bet (having second hand knowledge from a first hand source about Best Buys' crappy management) that the packaging/shipment that was delivered to the store that your product was in, was kicked/thrown/dropped/shoved/punched/slammed off the truck.

Total bummer to open it up to see it's obviously broken. frown.gif

Don't let it turn you away from one that is in perfect working condition - the one you got is just a lemon.

i bought the 620 from frys and this is my first water cooling setup and have a question.

i have been reading the i should connect the fan to the cpu fan header and the pump at a pwr fan header at 100% but my question is do i really want my pump always working at 100%, additionally i see that there are two connectors coming from the plate, i guess one is to power the the pump and than the other is if i wanted to also connect the fan and not use the cpu fan header?


sorry if these are stupid questions


thanks in advance
