I've always wondered how do people get such low idle temperatures? Unless you go phase change or liquid nitrogen, it is impossible to get below ambient temperature. I mean is the Air Conditioning cranked up in a cold basemen?.

At the moment mine isn't overclocked at all, running at 1400-3100mhz, Idle is 15-19 degrees celsius and load during Call of Duty: MW3 Multiplayer sessions it reaches att maxium 54 degrees with my chassis other fans running at lower speeds, with chassi fans running at max speed it highest temperature is 49 degrees!
I'm using my radiator and radiator fan as "exhaust", with other words, it blow the hot air out in at the back of my case! smile.gif

I currently have my 620 placed as the only exhaust on my case excluding my PSU. All other fans are intake and the air travelling through the rad is never too hot. I get load temps during gaming around 49, and idle around 31-32. As well as a push pull config using the old blademaster off my CM 212 EVO. Clocked the CPU up to 4.2 ghz stable smile.gif Nice cooler for an all in one liquid cooler. I would definitely recommend push pull, lower temps the better biggrin.gif

Guys is this normal for the backplate on AM3+???


See how the metal inserts at the top of the backplate are on top of the plastic and the metal inserts on the bottom are recessed into the plastic? Is this why when I tighten the screws my screws continually tighten and there's no stopping point? It will eventually just "pop" out and then continue tightening again almost like a stripped screw or something.

Just moved all my parts to a new case and noticed this. Is it normal? Should I be concerned? Also remounted when I switched to new mobo few weeks ago (used arctic cooling mx-2) and my temps seem worse. Not sure what's going on. Maybe need to just tighten the screws some more? How do you know when they are tightened enough?

I had this problem too, the plastic on the backplate is way too soft and it deforms when you apply even just a moderate amount of force tightening the screws. Once the plastic is deformed, the backplate is ruined and you have to do something to keep those metal receivers from continually turning if you ever want to remount your heatsink. I used a combination of superglue and a torch to bond the plastic to the receivers. The screws don't need to be that tight though, the screws are actually designed so they can only go in so far. To get the extra pressure on your waterblock to compensate for your deformed backplate, I would just use some plastic washers on between the backplate and the motherboard (that is what I did).

Presently I have an Asetek 510LC and I am thinking about upgrading to an Antec 920. Will the pump from the Antec 920 fit in to my Asetek mounting hardware?

I ask because from the pictures I have seen they both look pretty similar.

I didn't. If the plastic does indeed strip, hold that side in place with needle nose pliers while tightening the other side.

Ok thanks, I was hoping it was not doing it on everyone

You have it on backwards, it should be flat against the back of the motherboard. You shouldn't experience that problem after you make that adjustment smile.gif

Wait really? Not saying you're wrong but is it really backwards? Doesn't the adhesive backing go on the side I currently have against the motherboard? It's a little recessed and the adhesive backing fits right in (although my adhesive isn't on the backplate at all because I couldn't get it off my old mobo). confusedsmiley.png
