the question is should i return it or will it be fixed on its own with use? so far its been on for 2 hours or more.

if you check the OP - I mention it it usually is because it is "dry" - it shouldn't be making noise.
If it continues after shaking it - return it.


In other news - my Antec installation guide is super sexy!
It is a staggering 40mins long so far. Will add another 5-10mins to it for the temp comparisons and pictures!
Covers everything and anything you need to know about the antec and more so I feel it is the only guide that will be out there, that literally covers everything and skips nothing.
I think y'all will love it.

No man - that's the same version I had before - the same one that was hitting 90c (before de-lidding) and 80c (after de-lidding)

The difference is that I'm on STOCK atm whereas before I was at 4.5ghz.

But what I cared about was the difference of the intel cooler vs antec one - and the difference IS SUBSTANTIAL - before I RMA'ed it, the difference was minimal on stock...no idea what changed. (Mounted the same way)

Do you fold for stress testing or do you use p95? ie, have you been using identical load conditions when testing your temps? I wonder what the reason is for the replacement to perform better suddenly - other than the obvious conclusion that the previous unit was bad.

Well for the stock intel cooler I was folding.
And thus for the antec I folded too.

Just inc ase to eliminat WU things - I went ahead and ran IBT.

Basically long story short:
Antec 920 = 58c max temp
Stock intel cooler = 82c max temp
Temperature difference = 24c on full load tested via IBT and/or folding (max temperature taken)

-Antec 920 was setup as push pull - air was coming from OUTSIDE the case inwards.
-i7 is de-lidded, but that still doesn't excuse the DIFFERENCE of temperatures between the stock cooler and the antec
-i7 is running on STOCK voltages and clocks - nothing is touched apart from the ram timings and speed (to the rated SPD ones)

Video is rendering now.
I'll exchange the antec fans for the SP120's and report temperatures after too.

Once I can note the difference both sound wise and/or speed wise - I'll come to my conclusion.
I should say my antec hasn't ran anything above 800RPM fan speed.
Due to it being de-lidded it hasn't even needed to be ramped up at any point. Thus it still being super quiet (although I can hear a little winding/bearing noise)

Ive got hold of an Intel stock cooler while I wait for my 620 to be sorted out.

I HATE IT! My idle temps are similar to my max temps when i've got the Antec on!
post #3857 of 6068
Hey guys so I was switching my stock Antec fans today on my 920 and noticed this

I'm guessing these are not normal? So the question is will it effect performance?
post #3858 of 6068
Well when i bought my 920 i also had this problem but i just bended everything back. I had no need in getting it replaced or something like that because it just takes to long for me.

Not normal, no. But it doesn't look bad enough to seriously affect temps, at least not by much. What are your load temps?

----
On idle I manage to get 49-50C. on prime95 I think the peak I hit was 64-65.. Haven't OC'ed my Q6700 yet tho. I dont wanna loose a single degree right now, cuz these Q6700 bastards are hot as is.
