It is still worth calling antec for it though.

I was actually looking at picking up the new corsair SP120 High performance, but unfortunately I can't find them in Japan and if I did they would probably cost more than my H20 620 was in the first place

dam - not even amazon japan?

They are much better than the stock antecs.
They push the same temps, but at only 1500rpm - and are also silent, meaning a win-win

you could put a different radiator if you want but i don't think that it is worth the trouble. if you are going to mod a closed loop, it is probably better to get a true water cooling system instead. and if you want a thicker rad, just get the kuhler 920. there are a lot of deals online or visit your local stores for refurbs. i got my kuhler 920 for only $30 thumb.gif

thanks, yeah the af120 pushes less air but thankfully i found a spare gt ap-14 so im all set biggrin.gif

6C socket temp lol nice.
Just be careful of condensation. I got a bit of it on my radiator when I did that last winter.
My radiator was mounted out side the case so didnt matter to much if it dripped.

Well I finally finished my Antec 920 mod. I ditched the original 120 rad and went with a Swiftech 120 and a XSPC 240. I also added a Koolance 7970 block and a XSPC single bay res.
Did the PWM mod to a couple of Gentle Typhoon ap30's for the 240, and have a pwm controlled CoolerMaster on the 120.
On Silent setting the GT's spin around 1200 - 1300 and are near silent. All you hear is a slight wind / air sound, no motor noise at all! The difference between the Typhoons and the stock fans is quite dramatic. Stock fans even at low rpm had a very noticeable motor sound.

Modded Typhoons:



I ditched the Antec flimsy backplate and went with stock AMD backplate and wingnuts. Better mount and no motherboard warping.


XSPC res: Thinking of going with a white led to match rest of system. The blue is kinda meh...


Case side off: Good view of the bottom 120 rad.


Case side on: Looks decently clean, not best wire management but not the worst either. tongue.gif


My temperatures are damn amazing! I honestly didn't expect them to be as good as they are. 7970 at 1200 with 1.212 volts stays around 45c while gaming. And my AMD 8350 @ 5ghz is around 50 ish after 45 minutes of GW2. This is with the fans spinning at around 1500 rpm and again the the only sound is just a gentle breeze. I can hear my hardrive over the fans while gaming.

I love the fact that the pump controls fan speed according to water temperature. It produces a much smoother fan profile than having fan speed controlled by CPU temperature.

Comments and ways to improve please let me know.
