I just don't want a ginormous hunk of metal hanging off my motherboard.

Yes, I agree - one very very big advantage that all water cooling loops have over normal heat sink and fan combo's: one can take the heat of the CPU and completely isolate it from adding to the internal case temps of the computer. That won't necessarily change the CPU temps, but that could cause a huge overall case temperature drop, unlike a heat sink that is taking the CPU temp and dumping it inside the case to where (hopefully) the air flow will carry it away before the heat bakes any other computer system components.

I do know that if I had access to a dremel that my rad wouldn't be sitting in the spare 5.25" bay's - it would be mounted externally to the case where the rear 120mm fan is. I'll live with my current compromise however (one simple case mod is not enough to justify the expense for me).

Let me try to answer your questions:

1. Why is the backplate provided a plastic one? As it seems hardly stable enough
to hold the bolts in place (in fact mine have started rounding the backplate,
after a few mounts) - which also leads me unto another question regarding the
backplate: Do I need to use the adhesive strips to fasten it in-place? As now I
have no adhesive strips (as I had to remove it).


Metal would certainly be nicer for durability, but most people do not unmount
their cooler several times within a build. Overtightening the screws can lead to
what you experienced. Judging by the numbers of coolers sold and people
complaining about this problem only a very small number of customers seem to
experience these issues. If you need a new backplate and adhesive strips, we can
send you some. Just forward me your invoice to sgeler@antec.com together with
your shipping address.



Best regards,

Antec Customer Support

Plastic backplate thats because they are cheap ass,,,,, You cant even tell how much you have screwed in with the plastic back plate. One of my screw holes went loose in the middle of tightening....

yeah it shouldn't be making that noise - if you try and shake it and that's to no avail - RMA/return it

Search any video on youtube - and/or check the OP again

If you really want to hear how the pump should actually sound I will take my side panel off and grab my large diaphram condenser mic and put it right next to the pump. I'll also shut all my case fans off, except for rad fans those will be on ~800rpm, to keep wind noise down and isolate the pump.

That would be awesome if you could do that! smile.gif

Btw, I wonder if two F12 PWM fans would be good to have Pnp at my 620? They are really cheap, 1 fan here in my town cost about 5 euro smile.gif
