I'd email Antec and see what they have to say. If you want to err on the side of caution, your best option is to RMA it. No one will be able to say with any certainty exactly how much of a hit you're taking with those bent fins, only give you an approximation. My take is that your temps could take a hit anywhere from none to ~2c.

EDIT: Those fins are the 'air' fins, no the part where water flows through. If waterflow was impaired it would be a different story in terms of how much of a hit you'd be taking.

@DjBodya

On 2nd thought RMA it, in case any parts where water flows through are damaged. There may be evaporation or even leakage taking place. Even the tiniest hole not visible to the naked eye would mean water is getting out, even if it is not big enough to accumulate and drip causing water damage to your PC, it would still evaporate causing loss of liquid over time.

After 30mins of folding the Sp120's run a LITTLE cooler than my stock antecs - and the noise levels are about the same.
However the liquid temperature seems to be better (which would explain the static pressure of the SP's)

I'll do some more/longer tests tomorrow

I bought mine 920 off Amazon So i think Ill go that route and get it replaced. I know Antec Sometimes takes way too long.

My gamble of the CM Excalibur has failed..... I think Imma order some GT ap-45s and this little thing, http://www.sunbeamtech.com/PRODUCTS/Rheosmart/pci.html, to let me PWM them. Maybe even that way I can still keep using ChillControl. You guys think that will work?

If your fans are PWM then I would think so

Well it says it makes 3-pin fans a PWM. Hmmm I'll just grab the Sunbeam Controller and see if it will. It will be real cool if it does as I hate to leave the full fan controll to my mobo, plus I dont think I have enough 3-pin connectors on my mobo left anyhow.

Sunbeam products in general scare me. They can be hit or miss. Hopefully it works as it should.
