Old motherboards - they physically CLICKED to tell you - YES I AM NOW secure man
i agree - you used to get more feedback from the older stuff - now its a guessing game - did it work - is it tight - ? etc, etc, and no one knows haha
update on my fans -
it did not lower my Liquid Temps by as much as i was looking for - my expectations were a little bit too high - but it did lower them a few C's - i am idle at about 34C now -
fans on custom setting so its quiet at the same time - i really dont know what the fuss was about the stock fans - they are fine - they are quiet when browsing etc, and you have the headroom and full power when you stress it - if you ever get it to go full blast on normal use -
all this time- trying to figure out what fan to buy - etc, etc, - when the stock fans are very good -
all well - from now on - i will always try out the stock fans before deciding to change them out
i have a question - would you or anyone else know - on the antec 920 - how cool can those liquid temps get ? first - can the unit work correctly if i dont plug any fans in it and just plug the cable to the CPU header - ?
would that run the pump at least the way it should be ? then i can put two high speed fans on my fan controller - to cool it - i understand the chill software wont control the fans this way -
i am curious if the pump would be affected and if the system would boot up knowing just the cooler cable plugged in the CPU header but no fans on that header ?
purpose to thinking of trying this would be - i can then run two delta high speed fans on the Rad - connected to the Fan controller - those have a extreme high pressure rating - and would be curious to see how much lower the liquid temps can get -
which would lower my CPU temps and load temps -
do you think this would work ? or would you know the limit to how much this cooler can cool reguardless if i add the delts fans or not ?
