I would send the fans back and get replacements. But remember thoses are PWM fans. And the software is made for pwm fans. Try hooking the fans up to a 4 pin molex connector and see if they run full speed. Just too see if they are working. Any way-i,m guessing becuz of the way the software is made around pwm fans, you may not beable to use the software with non pwm fans to control them. You dont need or want to control the pump.

Hi guys i have the Antec 620 cooler as well.. I have a AMD X4 955 3.2Ghz and it idles at 33c - 35c. Is that normal cuz my stock heatsink did that. I aslo tryed it upside down and still no difference. I even put 2x fans on it still not really a change. I just got the cooler 3 days ago..

My current build: http://i1184.photobucket.com/albums/...2/DSC02049.jpg http://i1184.photobucket.com/albums/...2/DSC02047.jpg

I Contacted Antec and they said.... "Please make sure that the fan control feature on your motherboard is turned off. This is so that the pump receives full voltage from the motherboard."

Do the gurus present know if [I]any[I] aftermarket thermal compound performs better than the stock(but quality) shin-etsu on the 920?

So far I haven't been able to find any definitive proof, just opinions.

First as far as idle temps, i would say that could be a bit high, 33c mmm not bad, 35c bit high. But the real test in a cooler is not at all in idle temps, it is under full load that matters. And yes if plugged into your mobo DO NOT have any fan speed control enabled or on auto disable them, you want your pump running full. As far as a push pull that is the best way, but it also depends on what fans you are useing and whether you are useing it as sucking air in the case or out, i always set theses up as blowing out, if you have a top 120 vent in your case try that-that is were i get my best temps.

As far as the tim that is preapplied to the cold plate-it is some of the best there is, so if your getting good temps and are ok with it, no reason to change it,remember it may be some of the best there is but, how it is applied can ALWAYS make a big difference no matter how good it is.

I still use AS5, but there are about 4 others that get as good and maybe 1-2c better includeing the shin-etsu,mx-3 or 4 is great too.

I always clean the surfaces very well and let dry for about 15-20 minutes, then i tint the CPU and tint the heat sink, than apply a very small rice grain size dot to the middle of the cpu. I never use what is preapplied, but that is just me.

BY the way i always lap both cpu and cold plate also.

Okay so I want my Antec pump running off my mobo right? What if i have it running of my PSU will it give it more power or no?

I also went for 4.0ghz last night but 21min into my CPU stress test it errored is that my Ram? I have 8gb Gskill at 1333Mhz

My CPU is at 200 - 20 for my 4.0Ghz and its at 1.520 V is that safe?
post #217 of 6068
You can plug it into your mobo yes-just dont have any fan speed controls on in your bios or else were. And no it will not run faster hooked up straight to your psu-but you can if you wish. And unless you list your system specs no one can help.

post #219 of 6068
Depends what 955 it is c2 or c3 stepping-if its new i,m sure it is c3, but still, you may not hit 4.0 stable, my 955be is 3.9 cant get it too 4.0 stable, heat is an issue,but still some just wont. If you look at my second rig i have listed in my profile you will see it.

Also -need to know what bios settings you are trying, vcore-cpu/nb/dram/ht/nb/llc and so on.

Plus it is best to start out just trying to oc the cpu first nothing elae, get that to a stable point and with in heat limits. Try for like 3.8 first, run prime 95 for a few hours, 3-5-than go for 3.9 same thing 3-5 hrs, than 4.0 if it runs-run prime 95 for atleast 8-12hrs, i go for 24 once i have everything oc,ed.

I have the 955 BE Quad core. Okay when i ran 4.0ghz last night my temps were GREAT! MAX temp of 54c. But it stopped cuz of a error while running LinX stress test.

Do you think its because i need my RAM at a high Clock speed?
