as it stands now - my unit makes some sound - noise - if it suppose to be DEAD quiet - then mines isnt
does your chill software show the sound level in numbers also ?
tomorrow i am taking it off and removing board also - i will RMA my board - APU - memory etc, and thinking of going all Intel now and add the new unit to the new intel build
i just dont want to make same mistakes if i made any with this cooler - in terms of using the right screws - which only long ones fit the pins anyway -
did you hand tighten it down or use a screw driver ? how tight should i tighten it down - when i open it tomorrow to remove it - i will check how tight it is just to know
your setup is a intel 3770k and your chill software shows 32C when you boot up and idle ?

I'm confused, what are you RMA'ing bro?
You HAVE TO use a screwdriver for the process - or else you won't get a good lock/tight fit.

At boot, after waking up in the morning I'm at around 27-28c

you don't have to, but that's what I have in my setup.
post #2746 of 6063
sorry for the confusing last posts -

from the start - i put together a system with the 920 cooler - on a FM2 board - A10 and Crucial memory -

first thing -- the high temps - is what i see - and chill software does not read any Sound level in dbs -- liquid temps read 38C idle -


i did a RMA on the cooler - after speaking to support - i will be removing the 920 tomorrow and when i do - i will check the screws to see if they are loose or tight -- i believe i hand tighten them and were tight - now if i try to further tighten them with a screw drivers - its possible there is more to tighten or not -

i will check that tomorrow before i remove it - since i already RMA the cooler - i will return this one and try the new one -

now - my system been having problems - screen goes black and shuts done - reboots - and when i go to shut down windows - it dosnt shut down - it reboots again - i have to use the power button to shut it down -

not sure what that is - but the black screen and shut down - thats something - it can also be that the cooler is not working correctly or i didnt tighten down enough to make it work correctly - either way now - its running hot - maybe thats the reason for the black screen and shut down on its own

i have decided since i am taking everything apart again - i will change out everything and replace with

the Intel i7 - new board - new chip - new memory and now the new cooler - start over again

its very possible this is all a cooler issue - making it run hot and shut down on its own -


does your cooler chill software show the sound level in db's ? and does it run Dead quiet ?

As you probably know 12c at idle is impossible unless your ambient is 12c or lower. The zambezi and piledrivers do not read accurately at idle. Only at load it gets accurate (which is the only important temp anyways).

so i will keep my fans at their current state. i doubt turning them around would cause a temp drop.

what would a good load temp should be for a A10 processor ?

would 84C be good or too high ?
post #2750 of 6063
I have tried both intake and exhaust with mine and didn't notice that much of a difference so I put them back to exhaust just so I didn't have to dust filter the fans.
