The backplate seems to be hard to come by to be honest.
I would ask Antec about that one.

Alternatively ask on here, see maybe someone has one spare to give you.

As for airflow - yes that's actually quite good, but I would push air INTO the case.

Thinking about getting a 920 for my i5. Are there any major issues with these units?

For closed looped cooling you have the H100i, H80i, and Antec 920 in the same price range. Which one is best is debatable, but they are all in the same class of cooler. If you want a step up you can do a Swiftech H220 and then add to it if you want to cool your 670 FTW also.

Yeah hot air blowing into the case would be bad tongue.gif

anyway, do you still have your AMD backplate? lol I don't know if it's true for most people, but i keep all the pieces from all my equipment, just in case, so i've still got the intel backplate.

I still do have mine- but I'm RMA'ing my Antec - which backplate do you need?
Send me a PM with the picture

oh wait, i read your comment wrong, you said i should blow the are INTO the case...i got to thinking about it and i see what you're saying, hmm interesting, i maybe have to give that a shot, because as of right now i'm blowing the hot air from inside the case, out through the radiator, through the front.

If i turn the fans around, the cool air from outside the case will blow through the radiator, and out through the top and rear exhaust fans...but that poses the problem of hot air blowing over the mobo...guess ill just have to play with it.

I mean:
HOT air isn't really recommended to be blowing intot he case.
The fans should fact OUTWARDS - so the air being pushed through the antec rad should be going OUT of the case.

Some people however will argue that with good air flow- if you draw COLD air from outside, and push it through the rad, you get better temps, rather than pushing cold-is to hot air FROM the case, to out of the case.

Do some playing around with that.

Thanks.

Looks like NCIX is going to have H220s by the beginning of march. I'll wait for it.
