i think i found a decent fan - with PWM and stays under the 1 amp limit with two fans on one header -

its a plain black fan - and not sleeved wire -


http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Blade-Computer-R4-BMBS-20PK-R0/dp/B0030DL37I/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3U5RBQ2LAUELL&coliid=IFCEX31BGZM5G


i am a bit confused -


if you dont plug any fans in the antec 920 wires and just plug it in the CPU header - what does that do or dosnt do ?


i have a Y splitter for PWM fans - - All my fan headers can handle up to 1 amp each - since i am trying to use the existing Antec setup with the wires etc, - i need to make sure both fans combined dont exceed 1 amp - once thats done - then i want to check air pressure etc, - i dont mind if high speed or noise - because i can easily control the speed with the Chill software -

i notice the Chill shows the liquid temps - CPU temps cant be lower than the liquid temps - correct me if i am wrong - i am trying to lower my liquid temps - which will lower my CPU temps - during load at least - by doing this - i am sure the fans will be running high and make more noise - i am ok with that since i wont be fulling them at full - only when i prime test it - will have a better shot at getting a higher OC with low temps during prime

once i get it stable etc, - i run them lower - for normal use - so the noise would be much better and still keep temps lower - i am sure a little higher than on full speed but should be fine

thats my goal -

I have that very fan, it's decent but by no means amazing. The stock 920 fans will push more air than that coolermaster, though with more noise.

really ? whow i just ordered it -

i dont get it then - the static pressure is high on that fan - much higher than the fans i am using right now - they give off 2.2

this fan gives off 3.9 - which i am sure is at full speed

that means the stock fans are the best choice after all ?


does anyone know the specs on the stock fan ?

push more air - but better static pressure also ?


why is everyone changing them out to begin with then ? is it just the noise or they dont perform ?

It's that very reason that I use PWM fans for my 920. Changing fan speeds according to water temperature gives a much smoother fan profile.
As for fans, I use two GT AP 30's which would easily fry the Antec pump if hooked directly to it. So I have the power leads of the fans hooked to molex connectors and just hook the PWM wire to the pump to control the fan speeds.
Using molex connectors allows usage of all those awesome high powered fans out there and you still get your pwm control. tongue.gif

hehe nice man!

And yeah I know liquid temp is in the 920 not the CPU temps smile.gif
But the liquid temps will determine your ramp fan speeds and thus your cpu temps biggrin.gif!
(that's if you have a 4 pin pwm connected directly into the antec)

The stock fans perform VERY well, they push tons of air and have good static pressure. But
They're noisy tongue.gif
On low speeds it's not bad but when you crank them up its hairdryer like.

thanks - this is driving me crazy - all this time - i have the stock fans which do a great job and i never used them because everyone is changing them -

i knew its loud - but since you can control it - shouldnt be bad - and then you have the power if you need it on full for prime testing

maybe i should just give those a shot first


So you think the stock fans are better than the Cooler master i just posted a link to ?
post #2998 of 6063
does anyone know the static pressure of the stock fans - speed etc,


that info would help alot in trying to match those specs with other fans - theres no info on them anywhere

Thats the fan Antec uses for the 920. It's a beast honestly but it's noisy as hell. tongue.gif

On a side note, if you're putting the fans on the stock 920 rad, it really is hard to beat the fans Antec supplies. They do an amazing job pushing air through the tight fin spacing on the 920 rad. The Coolermaster fan you listed earlier can't hold a candle to the stock fans.

If you're wanting to mod the 920, check my posts. I've done extensive modding to it and know the unit inside and out.

To be honest, the 920 pump / block unit is one of the best bargains out there. You get a great compact pump and water block, a dedicated fan controller where fans are controlled manually or by water temperature, a water temperature monitor and some funky LED fun to top it off. tongue.gif

ok finally i got a answer - this is what i wanted to know so i can decide - and funny thing is i was trying to get a cooljag - i checked Jabtech - out of stock - great specs also -

ok i am done - i will use the stock fans and move on already - try to get 4.7 stable thumb.gif

thanks for posting the link - now i know the specs
