Kool...Thanks for the confirmation!!! thumb.gif

I guess I was just concerned since the pump barely made any noise. I've been lucky with my unit...it runs quietly.

noise wise -> yes (big difference whilst on load)
temps wise -> none (at least for the sp120 QUIET edition vs stock antecs for my 920) -> performance edition, might see a change in temps

I am looking to get the Antec 620 over the Corsair H60 for my Hackintosh rig. I am going to be running the i7 3770k at stock speeds and may OC to 4.0/4.2 if want faster video renders but don't intend to game with it.

How quiet is the Antec 620 during basic tasks such as web browsing or coding? How loud would it get if taxing premiere pro?

what are you rendering?

i recently upgraded my 3770 non-k to a 3770k and overclocked to 4.6GHz and when i exported a 12min long H.264 full quality 2pass VBR i saw an improvement by about 5 mins total export time which is a big deal for me when i am trying to get videos up on youtube as fast as possible.

i would suggest at least going for 4.5GHz you will more than likely see a pretty solid improvement in export times depending on what format you are working with. H.264 is still rather cpu intensive. so i benefited a decent amount from overclocking

I am rendering AVCHD or DSLR .mov files so would see a benefit from over-clocking which I have never done before. To get the most stable Hackintosh build I am limited to the Gigabyte Z77N-WIFI Motherboard.

I am just compiling my components for purchase this weekend hence asked about the Antec 620 and whether or not it would be a good choice for the 3770k and Bitfenix Prodigy case.

can you be more specific on what cameras you are using? as there are a lot of cameras that work with AVCHD some shoot at bitrates of 9mbps and some way way higher lol. same goes for DSLR cameras. nikon and canon both shoot in .mov but the files are not exactly the same although technically they are, i think canon might have their cameras shoot at a slightly higher bitrate. but overall the video themselves are pretty much identical wink.gif

with stock fans - not that quiet (speaking from the 920 here) - with the SP120's quiet edition, they are quiet.
As on load, the antecs ramp up to around 2300rpm or so, let alone full load at around 3k rpm

I bought a couple Antec 620's recently and two of them sold in custom PCs I had built to sell. I kept the stock fans and sold them with aftermarket fans. I was strolling through Best Buy and they had the 620 for $40 so I snagged another one for a personal build. I was using 2 Enermax Magma's and performance was great. Just for kicks I put the 2 Antec stock fans on and they performed even better. A bit loud though. If I got the 2 pack of Corsair SP120 (not the quiet ones) would I see a performance increase? What about noise? More or less?

I can't comment on the performance edition, but the quiet edition, performs the same as the stock antecs, but is MUCH quieter.
So my guess on the performance edition is that it is as loud as the antecs but performs BETTER
