Strange thing happened. Chose updates SW/FW from taskbar Antec Control, and it started the process for updating. Then the bootloader failed. I actually got linked to to a file pdf file AN200 from Silicon labs when the failure occured. I guess I am a little confused, if the bootloader failed like that for the firmware was there no new firmwares? Or is there and I just did not do it right? I did manuelly download the updated control software fine from Antec website to 1.2 version and it is updated now but the firmware i do not know.

Agreed about the instructions and the fitting. That's why I created my guide, to help people smile.gif

i just read your guide and it is quite good...i wish i had it when i was installing my 920..i went about the installation the same way but it took 4 beer and a couple of hours cause i didn't want to accidentally fry a new system...i had to make sure it was on there right (as close as i could figure).. i as well got the all black installation kit, no color coding on mine.. ok so a quick question/advice.. bf3 is the most demanding thing i put my rig through and under full load i get a liquid temp of 29-30c and with asus suite II it tells me my cpu temp is 37-38c....would you say a 10c difference is normal or maybe its not quite installed properly..i mean it feels pretty solid, its not twisted, nothing is broken... overall im not worried about 38c cpu temp..thats nothing...but is that kind of variation normal?? thanks.

Glad you liked the guide smile.gif

Yeah that's pretty normal.
My liquid temp can get to 40c, however my CPU temp will be up to 85c using p95 for several hours.
Liquid temp should usually stay under 45c in all instances.

Also AI Suite - I don't think is giving you CPU temps, but instead giving you MOTHERBOARD temps.
Get something like core temp or real temp -> those are your real CPU temps.

Alright so pretty much got rid of one of the fans. I decided that I didn't like how much space it was taking up here is a shot of how it looks now




Sorry I don't have a second close up of it. But if you looks semi closely you can see that its taking up far less space and actually fits better. XD. rather happy with it but will end up getting some gentle typhoons and installing at least once there.

Actually quick question will the Software that is with the 920 work with the 620? something I've been wondering

Finally i rebuilt my rig using GT AP15-s, and a Touch 2100 controller.
Those fans are amazing.
I run them at fixed 1100 RPM P/P, and idle 30°C, load 46°C. (23°C room temp)
No more need to raise the rpm for load, like with the CM Sickleflows...

Digging though this thread and can't seem to find a pretty basic answer: how are people connecting pwm 4-pin fans into the kuhler 620? Are they using 4-pin to 3-pin adapters keep the fans controlled by the pump or just putting direct power leads to each and running them all at max rpm?

I've got 620s on my cpu and my gpu, looking to upgrade the fans. Leaning toward cougar vortex because they're $10 each right now and supposedly vaguely comparable to the $20+ noctuas.
