Add me to the club! I got both.

Been using the 620 on my back up rig for a bit now. Keeps my E8500 pretty cool @ 4GHz. (Will hopefully post a pic or two later.

After a good experience with the 620 I got a 920 for my i7. Working really well right and now and on par with my D14! I actually did the software and minor customizations you can make.

Only thing that sucked was having to remove the back top 200mm exhaust fan to get it to fit. I guess it wasnt exactly necessary anymore but still would have liked to have kept it.

Couple quick pics I snapped after initial install of the 920. Still have to get some updated pics with the new GPU stuff. Still using the stock Antec Push/Pull fans. They actually work pretty well.

Do I need to put the adhesive back pad on? How hard is it to remove if need be?

Hey guys, picked up a 920 yesterday and installed it.

And... I have that stupid dreaded clicking noise. Tried shaking it, ect. to see if I could get rid of it, but nothings working. Frustrating is not the word. Temps are good though, I think. I'm idling around 28-30c and max load barely hits 50c on a i5 2500k OC'd to 4.5Ghz on 1.280/90 (forgot exactly haha) volts. That is using the pre applied TIM btw. (I used IC diamond on a heatsink before but I discovered ICD has an abrasive quality and I was lucky to avoid not polishing off the markings on the CPU - won't be using again I don't think. Will probably just hit up AS5 at some point later on if it'll perform better than the stock TIM (I know the stock TIM is Shin Etsu and some of the best stuff out there, but they put way too much on it to the point where it doesn't work as good as it should, I think.)

Anyway, enough about that. The temps so far using stock TIM and 4.5ghz okay? Also, what should I do about that clicking noise? Bear in mind I live in Europe, so I'll try to get a hold of Antec, but I'm not sure if they're as generous as Antec US. I'd hate to RMA it and be left without a cooler for days. Also, paste. Hit up AS5 or is there something similar but superior? (I'm thinking MX?)

Thanks.

No its just there to hold it in place while you put on the front bracket. Just have someone hold it in place while you start the screws.

So far with the Antec 620 I have a Sycthe Kaze ULTRA sucking fresh air on my Radiator. Along with the second Antec fan blowing air in the case.

The adhesive pads are there to hold backplate in place but oh man, when you switch mother boards or something and need to remove the back plate beware! Stuck like super glue!! I actually had to pry off with a flat head screw driver as i would have broke my backplate or tore part of my mother board if i didnt.

ADD ME TO THE CLUB (Antec H2O 620), and to Overclock.net lol!

Ok I a problem, i think, and some questions

1. Box says fan speed is 1450-2000rpm, My ASROCK AXTU Tuning Utility shows my fan speed sitting around 1390rpm? Whats with that, where is my 2000 rpm to keep my rig cool? I read this whole thread and you guys talked about rpms a little but nothin anwsered my question, but one guy did say if your speed is at 1390-1400 its at 100%. Can someone Explain?

2. I idle around 34-35C, is that good? But my full load got up to 70C using prime95! Where is my 50C like everyone else? =( I got a Antec 900 Two V3, all fans maxed, and a push pull on the 620. My office is isnt really that hot so there is something going on here.

plz help! thanks!


ps, i did put artic silver all over the cpu when building my comp, i read on this thread that someone said dont put tooooo much, but how much is too much? I just covered the surface of my cpu, not just a little drop.

Everyone has to realize min/max temperatures depends on too many variables. For example, case air pressure, case temps, motherboard, nb, sb, cpu, ram voltages, gpu and AMBIENT temps. Dont forget CPU Batch number because not all cpus can overclock at same voltages.

I need at least 1.34vcore to be stable at 4.4ghz with AVX instruction set. Even with the lowest vcore I could use, the machine was running slower until I upped the vcore.

Without an accurate temperature reading of all of those the cpu min/max is not a good way to compare to everyone else.

Now with all the above mentioned ADD more variables with aftermarket fans for push/pull, fan air pressure, cfm, different TIM methods and brands, and the different ways of mounting the radiator and you have yourself a J.O.B.

Bottom line...

ok thats true about the temps, but if im running high 60's and most people are running low 50's, somethin is up, but ill live with it.

The only thing I guess I really have a question about is the fan speed. I only have 2 options in my bios, "full on" and "automatic". I kept it on default full on. With that being done, why is it not going over 1390 rpm?
