Could you pls point out the part no. from attachment photo to avoid sending wrong item.

Thank you for using Antec products"

basically asking again if it is intel or AMD.

Sweet, hopefully I get a reply soon, and it'll be along the same line as yours as I also didn't include that I need the Intel back-plate, oops.

But yeah next time just push in on the thumb screw and push the black plastic backplate in towards the board and the metal insert will stick out enough to get a pair of needlenose pliers on.

It was pretty tough the first time around. This is my 5th Kuhler 620 I've owned (I buy and sell a lot of systems locally) and I've learned to tighten the thumbscrews with my fingers just enough so I don't strip the plastic.

Don't worry, it didn't appear 'dick-ish' to be honest.

Very good advise on not using a screwdriver lol, the first time I installed the cooler I actually didn't use a screwdriver, but for some reason I did last time and yeah, the result was breaking the plastic back-plate.

Well in my previous email it clearly states I need the LGA 1155 and the adhesive strips (even the title of the email is that)...no idea why they are asking again to be honest.

I actually had a look for a number to call on the Antec site but I couldn't find any for the UK, ill have to have a harder look later and see if I can give them a call.
We do have pliers, but I couldn't seem to get the metal insert to stick out of the back far enough to grab it. rolleyes.gif

I couldn't find the Antec support number until I googled Antec Contact US. But I dunno if they have any offices outside of the US

Not if you are mounting on a LGA775 board. You need a screwdriver from the start. The LGA775 holes are off and one has to kind of insert the screws a little on an angle sideways.

Got my replacement 920 from my RMA back today. It does not have that same major scratch at the bottom of the waterblock this time.

Will post with new temps. On a side note, I did increase airflow in my case by rigging an additional front intake - it hasn't made any difference with my 212+, let's see if I can stay under 89 with the 920 this time.
post #3826 of 6063
Goodluck. Hope this one performs better and is issue free.

Do let me know how it performs!
Seems like mine was supposedly normal for 60c on SB and 75c on IB...
I'll be probably getting a h220 in soon.
post #3828 of 6063
Under similar conditions as before my max temp has been 85c this time. 4C down from my previous 89. This is after 55 mins of p95. Ambient is a little higher this time (~68F from prev 65F), and vcore is 1.281 rather than 1.272, CPU is at 4.5GHz. I disabled the addtl. front intake fan I had installed to get as close as possible to my previous test conditions.

One variable that has changed are the 2 Corsair SP120's (High Performance) I am using now. Previously I had been using a Coolermaster R4 together with a Bitfenix Pro Spectre on my first run, then the stock Antec fans during later testing. With either fan config I had gotten up to 89C. Honestly I dont think the fans themselves would have such an impact.

Liquid temp is 31.7 rather than the previous 34-35.

I'll let you draw the conclusions for yourselves - I'll go with the simple fact that my temps are modestly lower. Feel free to comment and speculate though, I am curious what input you might have.

On a side note, the H220 is looking mighty attractive short of a custom loop.

And yes, I know (radiator) size matters biggrin.gif

Cheers, but isn't +31 the area code for The Netherlands?
I'm not sure calling that is a good idea, unless you did?
