With these things it is often a trial and error process unfortunately and what works for one person may not work for another due to changing parameters and variables such as voltage and ensuing temperature as well as one's personal tolerance to noice levels.

A 3pin fan will work if you are willing to connect it directly to your motherboard instead of the Kuhler. This of course assumes your motherboard has enough 3/4 pin headers. If it does, you can either use your motherboards BIOS to control your fans - if supported by your motherboard - or a thirdparty software like Speedfan which is similar to the Antec software in that it allows you to control the fans from within Windows but is more detailed and with a steep learning curve.

I should say speedfan didn't work with my SP120's either.

Really depends on the fans - I even emailed corsair about it, and they confirmed it wouldn't be PWM fully 4 pin compatible.
So depends on brand, pin structure etc.
Long story short, if you really want to control it via the software, get 4pin fans.

Thanks for summarizing it for me thumb.gif

I tend to get lost in the details most of the time rolleyes.gif

Those I've heard are great fans! I should have gotten them!

After connect the fans cougar can I control it rpm by using the antec software?

I think that splitter cable is a downvolt cable, 12v to 7v or maybe to 5v.

You are NOT going to get the same amount of clamping pressure when you de-lid your cpu.....

You now have roughly an additional 2 millimeters of distance that the stock Antec bracket must make up for, and guess what, it won't.
You've lost clamping pressure now which will decrease performance.You would have to shim the mounting bracket to make up for the lost pressure.




For those wondering what fans work best and what not. There's a reason Antec went with the fans they did. 9 blade CFM monsters. It's because the rad has a very high fin density and you need a monster fan to force air through such a rad. Unfortunately monster fan = monster noise. That's the trade off.
Notice that the only difference you see between these OEM rebrands is the fans they chose to supply.
The 920 typically beats these rebrands by a few degrees, two or maybe three.
Why?
Because Antec went with those monster fans.
And one more thing, you can set up a fan profile that will give you within 5*C or so of top performance and still be pretty darn quiet, with the stock fans.

This is what I was getting at.... How do you know your getting the proper mount pressure... Considering same temps as intel cooler it's easy to assume you're not getting the proper pressure.

As much as I would like to agree - explain my temps period to de-lidding then?
/the end

Antec is now in bits, ready to be RMA'ed I don't expect a 920 cooler to be at times out performed by a stock intel cooler.
Oh and FYI: Tested both on i3 and i7 - i3 is NOT de-lidded.

Some people jump to conclusions...rolleyes.gif

Not jumping to conclusions, what I stated is fact. It's your own failure. You modified something and then expect a product to perform on your modification when said product was never designed to do so.
You're the worst kind of consumer.
