Is there a warranty on just the fan and can I RMA just the fan? I have had the cooler for less than a year and the fan as developed an awful rattle. The cooler itself is functioning perfectly.

Not sure but you can always ask Antec. I mean technically its part of the cooler so it's covered.

And if it's going to cost you to ship it and whatnot, it is just a fan, you can like, buy a better one probably for less than $10.

Has anyone put an aftermarket radiator on their Antec Kuhler? I heard it was possible and was toying with the idea of getting a thicker 120mm rad for my 620...

I'm fully aware of that, but most folks aren't, or they simply forget to check. I posted with the hope that people would take it easy on them when commenting further. wink.gif

I emailed antec australia and thier reply was rma it... The thing is working fine, is it running way to fast, should I rma it, or will it happily pump for years at over 3k? By keeping it am I risking a leak?
Thanks

3250RPM is not bad, better to be a little faster then slower. As with fan's, there will be an acceptable tolerance for RPM variation. Most fan manufactures will allow +\- 200RPM variance. Speed could also be affected by the mounting of the unit. The radiator must be mounted with the tubes on the bottom! This is simple hydrodynamics. Air always rises to the highest point in a system and even though these systems should be air free, that is not always the case. If the hoses are pulling from the top of the radiator and there is air in the system, then that air will continually be cycling through the pump and aerating the coolant which in turn lowers its cooling efficiency and slows its flow rate and will cause the pump to run faster. By mounting the radiator with the hoses on the bottom, any air in the system will accumulate in the top reservoir of the radiator and will never be reintroduced into the coolant.

i decided to return it any way and luckily i found an antec 920 that the shop is selling for only $30 due to missing brackets. and it works perfectly biggrin.gif

edit: nvm, i found another spare gt ap-14!

I wouldn't see why not. The hard part is going to be getting all the air out of the system and proper hose fittings. With Microcenter selling the unit for $49.99 now, it's worth a shot.

now here's another issue, i have two fans -- a gt ap-14 and a corsair air series af120 quiet edition fan. which one do i use to push and which one for pull? i thought the gt ap-14 will need to be used as the push fan but i am not entirely sure.

I believe the corsair air series af120 quiet has lower static pressure(.5 H2O) compared to the GT AP-14 (.8-1 H2O). The AP-14 number is very allusive for some reason.. I would go GT AP-14 Push, AF120 pull

I'm using the SP120 quiets on my antec.
They cost, together: £17.
Probably cheaper than RMA'ing the antec fans.
It is still worth calling antec for it though.
