Just had the dreaded rattling sound happen to me. I made my system for quiet operation so the sound is really rather infuriating. The Kuhler is attached to my 3d Card so it's a pain in the butt to have it removed. I put in a request for an advanced RMA with Antec. Hopefully it goes through relatively quickly. The Fry's by my house ran out of Kuhler 620's and the nearest microcenter is about 40 minutes away. I hope to god that this is not as common a problem as it appears in this thread.

Further Update: I attached the power supply to my Rheobus Extreme. The Sound did not go away. I left it at max because that minimized sound. My kuhler 620 finally gave up the ghost today. Computer refused to boot up. Antec support requested a copy of my invoice/receipt, which I gave up when I mailed in my fry's rebate. Hopefully, I have a copy somewhere.

Not too happy, many places only require the serial number and their internal systems will be able to tell where you bought it.

Wow, I guess I got lucky and got mine while the quality was still good. I'm yet to have any trouble with my 1st one. Bought it in May of 2011, no problems to date, even wiping my computer and installing windows with it still in!

You know, the 620 actually gives almost, not the same but almost, the same performance as the 920. The biggest diffrence is the sound volume, not the performance. This is whit push pull on the 620. The 620 reaches faster to max temp, and got about 5 degrees over the 920, but it is amasingly equel in performance. If it works anyway biggrin.gif But the sound volume isnt very nice if you go over 25 in ambient temps, then it get warm up to where the sound starts kicking in. Just my opinion, tried bouth

I've got a 620 bought before June 2011 and a 920 on sale around Nov. 2011 (but not sure how long they were on the shelf at Canada Computers).
It's too bad others are having such a bad experience with them - I've had no problems whatsoever.

Mine was still in the return date for my store so I exchanged it for another unit. I am scared of the random gurgling sounds that happen every now and then in my computer as they were the precursor to my kuhler dying before. My hoses were stretched a little on my old unit in order to reach the front fan on my Corsair 500r. I took the old rear fan of the 500r, took a hammer to its fan hinges and crafted myself a makeshift shroud. Using 6-32x3-inch screws from Ace Hardware, I connected it in front of my Push fan (Corsair SP High Performance 120mm). There is also a Gentle Typhoon Ap-15 on pull. Idle temps are down about 2-3 degrees Celsius and my hoses no longer feel stretched (and the gurgling sounds are not as common as they were before). Maybe I was somewhat at fault for my old unit dying; hopefully this new unit holds up.

got mine hooked up and have minor gurgling/clicking (louder than the fans but not by much). seems like a lottery so i'm going to keep it to avoid teardown & rma hassle. ah well whaddaya expect for $30.
