They're ok, but I've never been convinced of my Antec 920 temps...:/
I was around 92c at 1.27v for 4.5ghz.
De-lidded I'm now at around 70c

You de-lidded?! You brave man. I could never do that. 92c seems pretty damned high!

Hello, I have a serious problem here. after installing firmware through the usbbootloader It's impossible to do anything else. not light the antec logo and the program does not work and I can not reinstall the original firmware. I downloaded the control VI chill and he did not think the H2O 920 then updated the firmware thinking it would solve my problem, however it got worse. Now he does not even appear in usbbootloader to get back the old firmware. the pump and the fans always spin at maximum as if the USB cable was unplugged. Will have to force him to appear in usbbootloader to reinstall the old firmware.

That's because it was updating its firmware - you shouldn't have turned it off or disconnected it.
I suggest unplugging the cooler - then re-plugging it again (after uninstalling all the firmware, checking the registry via ccleaner).
Then install the firmware again, from a download off the website.
And then right click on the icon, after installation, and update SW/FW.
See how that goes.

Or use Revo Uninstaller, it's dead quick and easy

Thanks for the tip. The strange thing is that I expected it to update right, I did everything as it should be done. until I reboot it in usbbootloader, however ja guy stopped responding and logo antec agreed not more, already hung it about 10 times. already changed the usb port and nothing, simply usbbootloder opens, but nothing to recognize the device so I can change the firmware. You see I had a chill V control and went on the antec site to see if there was something new and had available the chill control VI, I downloaded it, but once installed it gave the typical error that was not connected even after restart and decided to give up the firmware thinking it was my problem, and that was when the headache started. Now I can no longer do the reverse process, when you click update SW / FW he opens usbbootloader however so is this.

As for the noise. Everytime i remount my cooler (for any reason) and detach the rad all the water goes into the rad and away from the pump. so when i turn on the system the pump runs at max for a couple of secs and sounds like your one, then my system shuts down. The solution i have found has been to lie the case down on its side (with the mobo facing up so on its right side) so that the water runs from the rad and into the pump. that sorts out the noise for me.
I am not sure what you mean with "black cable goes on the right side of the port". My cables are all black and which port do you mean?
I have also let the PC run for a while while on its side so that the air could rise out, it did not change anything.

It was noisy for two weeks before I tried this, it has been quiet for dour days, being turned off at night. The photo may be upside down - don't know why but the fans are on the top of my machine.
I've heard about this but that would mean the noise should have disappeared when I ran it on its side right?

Yes that is what I don't understand as well. The only thing different is that it is now connected to the CPU_FAN port on the motherboard instead of the case cables.

I'm only saying this as OTHER people reported it, and they RMA'ed it and had no problems afterwards.
Now that's a question indeed.
Maybe trying a different USB outlet?
Maybe it isn't getting enough power....which would mean RMA'ed the board....as it isn't drawing correct power
Sadly I do not have the stock cooler.
I did not change the USB port at all so I doubt that is the cause, but I guess I'll try a different one anyway.
I have also sent a support ticket to Antec but I have yet to receive a reply.

Let us know what Antec say!
post #3350 of 6068
I have no tried a different USB port and also a different port for the CPU fan. Neither of those made a difference.
I have also remounted the cooler so that the tubes exit the top of the cooler instead of the bottom, sadly this also causes the cables to be in a less desirable position. Nevertheless I have tried it and the noise is exactly the same.

Here is the reply from Antec:

Sometimes air can become trapped within the cooling plate and cause noise. Also some Mainboard fan controlling functions may interfere with the pump working properly, which again can cause noise.

1) Please enter your BIOS and check if there are any fan controlling functions active and disable them.

2) To release trapped air, disassemble the radiator from the enclosure and carefully shake it while the system is on.

3) Try to rotate the cooler in a way that the hoses are facing a different direction than down.

If all this fails, you may want to opt for a replacement through your reseller. This would be the fastest way to receive a replacement cooler.

This support ticket will remain open. If it should get closed by the system without a solution found, please send an email to sgeler@antec.com mentioning the Ticket ID in the subject.

Best regards,

Antec Customer Support
