I agree that the stock fan does do a good job at keeping the temps down, i used just a single stock fan on my 620 on a few 775 chips with reasonable overclocks and had no issues with temps, although a little noisy at full speed when gaming. having said that, i moved to a pair of Xigmatek CLF-1254's and they are deadly silent.


ok so - the pump would work as it always does with out the fan plugs used from the cooler - and i guess your system booted fine with no issues with no fans on the CPU header -

i have the 140mm Xigmatek fans for my intake and exhast on top of the case - they are guiet - but pressure wise - not enough for the cooler i think - i may be wrong -

and the temps i guess wont be dropping my room then - its usually warm here - unless i keep my windows open - i have to wait to the summer time to see with the AC on - how much they would drop

so the unit is capable to give off lower liquid temps - if conditions permit - i guess trying out the other delta fans wont do me any good if my room temps are not cold enough -

maybe in the summer time - i can try that

thanks -

I would say nothing below 10 degrees above room tempurture is the coolest you could get them in ideal conditions.

The other stuff of your questions i have no idea. Multiple speed controls on one circuit is not good. By default you max out all speed control switches and just use one to adjust speeds.


you can connect two fans on each header fan etc, - just have to keep below the 1 amp rating of each header - - i dont think that would be a problem -

but being that the fans i was looking to try in the future - just to see - are way above the 1 amp rating - for each fan - i think they are 1.7 amp -

i would connect those to my fan controller - powered from the PSU - i would use a Y cable to connect both fans to one Fan Controller channel -


the wattage rating for the fan controller is i think 25 or 35 per channel - i think i would be ok with that - but i am not sure - if the amp rating would affect it or not -

140mm fans in general don't put out as much static pressure as 120mm fans do. According to the specs on the website the CLF's i've got have very good static pressure of 1.516mmH2O. Compare that to the ever increasingly popular Corsair AF120 Performance Edition's (which spin 150rpm faster) which have 1.1mmH20 and they hold up really well.

i got these over some other fans which may perform better as i wanted fans with clear housing and LED's for a mod I'm doing, but considering my very specific requirements for the features they're pretty dam good. With my 3570k clocked at 4.2, my temps across the cores (0-3) were 60, 67, 63, 62 respectively.

i understand you are looking for a Mod - etc, also - - but i do think that the Corsair fans most people are using are the SP120 High Performance model - those specs are much better in pressure than the AF120

i was close to getting them when i realized they are 3 pin - and i wanted to control my fans with the software -

it can get very confusing when looking for fans - and i made simliar mistakes when reading specs - etc,

i dont think the stock fans are that bad at all - they are not loud - unless under full speed load - which i can control and ususally dosnt get full speed either way -

but everyone is looking to achieve something different - just watch the specs - models of these fans and make sure its what you are looking for - the stock fans give out a 3.6 pressure i think - its in that area for sure - at full speed -

my temps are silimar to yours - but i am running at 4.7 at 1.355 vcore - - steady all the time vcore -

i like to try to see if i can get it lower down as i idle etc, - but so far i tried one thing and it didnt work so i went back to steady volts -

its fine either way - way below TJ max - biggrin.gif

With my computer idling my water temperatures usually stays around 4c to 5c above my system temperature.







Here are my fan settings:



The lowest the modded Typhoons spin is 1200 - 1250 rpm, thats during basic computer use.
When doing a hardcore gaming session or some such they will hit around 2k.
And of course for benching I ramp them up to 4200. tongue.gif

Ah yeh sorry it's the SP'120s isn't it. The high performance one's come at a cost of noise though, spinning up to 2350rpm to get their quoted 3.1mmH2O with the quiet SP's going up to 1450rpm for 1.29mmH2O.

I haven't really played with overclocking mine too much. With my old 775 cpu, a good overclock was pretty much a necessity, but this chip runs so fast at stock i've left it there while gaming.

those are nice temps - i was looking for those temps - but in my case - i dont think i ever get them - my room is at 82 F - right now - my case fans i have a little lower - side fans also and cooler fans lower also - to keep it quiet - which it is - right now my system is on my desk very close to me and its quiet enough -

here is a screen shot - shows my board is actually 2 c warmer than my Cpu - if i raise the side fans on the case - that will drop -
given my room being this warm - i cant expect much more - if i put it at full speed the fans - i can get easly 34C - about 2C lower -

i will have a better idea in the summer with the AC on -

even though - my temps are higher than most - but still long ways from doing any damage -

the most i do is Nero video - and DVD Fab - blu rays etc

i dont think it loads it 100% - even if it did - i would be fine - but i am sure it dosnt - i will try to see if i can lower my Vcore - or use a off set - if i figure that out - or else - i am not worried

plus i got the Intel insurance biggrin.gif

Yes - but just so you undestand something - which i think is important - i got all caught up with the noise - etc, everyone is changing stock fans - for one reason or another -

so at first - i never installed the stock fans - thinking they were too loud - not good etc, - turns out - they are fine - not only fine - they are very good - you can control the fans with the software - so noise it not a issue -

i was going with the SP fans - before i realized they are 3 pin - cant control them - at first i used Cougar Vortex fans - which are actually very nice and quiet - good enough pressure - but i changed them to try the stock fans - which i am keeping because i have them nice and quiet - and doing fine - my system wont get any cooler unless i get my room cooler -

i notice in most other peoples situation - there rooms are much cooler than mines - my room is 82 F right now - -

just for fun - i will end up changing out the fans again and putting high speed delta fans - on my controller - by passing the software - which was not my goal right now -

and see how low i can get my liquid temps in the summer time - when i have the AC on - i should get below 30C then -

my advice to anyone who gets one of these coolers - is first use the stock fans and see for yourself before going crazy trying to find that perfect fan -

if anything its bettter to have a high speed fan and able to lower it down - than to get a low speed quiet fan and then cant go any higher if you wanted or if it wasnt good enough for you -

^^ Agree with you totally.
Stock fans really are pretty good. They do get noisy at higher rpms, but the amount of air they push is hard to beat.
The reason I changed out the stock fans was mainly due to running them horizontally. The motors get just plain nasty when run horizontally.
I don't know if its the bearings or what, but it's ugly. Vast majority of people though run the fans vertically so it's not an issue.


For the 620, any fan will do.
As for the 920, PWM fans are the only way to go. Honestly you're not taking advantage of what the 920 offers if you use 3 pin fans.

thanks -

I've already stated this, and told you about it expresso:
I put my Sp120's in my fan headers.
The bios and system find it fine
However the antec software will pick up no fans and show you errors (which you can disable the notification for)

As for the control - I prefer it via my bios 0 unless I had stock fans,t hen the antec software is the best.

For the noise- when gaming on BF3 or rendering a video, they get noticeably loud.
Now I can't hear my Sp120's whilst on idle and/or whilst doing the same operations.

Overall, now my rig is quieter on idle, and quit on gaming
Before it was quit on idle, but loud or average on gaming.
