I sometimes notice that is stops making the noise for a few minutes at a time. Sometimes its during games.

Strange. The pump on my Antec 620 is virtually silent except when I start it up. It makes that kinda wooshing water noise that lets me know it is working properly. I'd get the cooler replaced if it's making any kind of clicking noise. Never know when that might take a turn for the worse.

i'm going for a good silence to performance ratio. What would be better, the 620 or 920? I'm gonna have 2 noctua's on it

Really just depends what fans you're planning to use. I've seen the Antec fans ramp up to full blast and while it blows a stupid amount of air, it sounds like a turbine.

I'm planning to get some lower RPM fans with decent static pressure to do a push/pull config in a relatively silent setup.

Atm, I have my antec fan connected to one of those 7v resistors, which makes it virtually silent. I have another relatively quiet Cooler Master fan aiding this one in a push/pull config as intake.

At pretty high ambient temps, my temps don't go above 66c or so at 1.285 v in this silent config. If I let the Antec fan run normally, I generally average around 61c on highest temps.

I'm still working on my overclocking personally, so a lot of this will depend what you're gonna have your settings at. I've been able to down my voltage to about 1.270 v at 4.4 Ghz in about 10 hours of prime. I wanted to play games, so I stopped it after that point.

so basically with the same two fans and noise level, which would perform better? The 620 or 920?

620. I don't like how bulky the 920 looks. Aesthetics are important to me, since I spend a lot of time working on my case and the components that are in it. You'll probably get significantly better cooling results with the 920 though (and a programmable LED on the pump).

I get no sound when it starts up. I've already got a replacement on the way.

This unit plugs into a motherboard fan header, right? The motherboard might be undervolting the pump when the computer cools down.

Antec recommends that you disable any kind of dynamic fan control. I tried it on mine, in my BIOS its called Qfan, it was set to Silent, after disabling it the problem was still there.
