Not ideal, but I love the case. Temperatures were around the same in my old case (Silverstone PS07B), a few C cooler with Push/pull (not enough room in this case)

Should probably update the OP with the Khuler 1220, looks awesome.

Now, my reason for posting here, has anyone replaced the radiator on one of these? Getting an XSPC radiator from a friend soon (120mm) that needs a home, and I'm pretty sure it'd be better than the stock one, just looking for some advice. Guessing I might have to replace the tubing, too. Might add a bay res.

Also, whats the advantage of having the pump header/monitor/control thingy plugged in? I've never had mine connected..

Hey there!

If you check the OP there is a mod section - some of the lads here have done tube modding and whatnot smile.gif
The advantages so far were a few degrees shaved off, but nothing special - more aesthetics than anything (tubing)
As for the rad - if you had to buy a new rad, tubing etc - it might be best to buy a new unit all together lol.

I would add the 1220 but no one has stated they have it for me to add it as an option!
I agree, it does look cool.

Open up the Sensor window, it has average core temps for however long you run it.
I am sure I could do the Excel VB, but HWiNFO64 gives you the average.

doh.gif. I've had hwinfo64 all this time. I even looked around in it for an avg feature and couldn't find it. I'll see if I can find it this time.

Maybe I'm mentally handicapped and blind, but where is it lol? Seriously I can't find it.

^Sensor Status window shows current, min, max, and ave. Just make the window bigger it is hiding to the right of max. You have the most recent one?

Over time I've experimented around with my own personal little (win7) test app (eg manipulating the endpoints to keep the fan speed steady).
But mine really isn't "clean room". It uses the same Silabs usb driver installed by the ChillControl installer - and I figured out the packets by perusing the executable.

Interestingly, the original ChillControl installer I used had no had no legal notices or agreements or copyright notices whatsoever and the only copyright notice I found is buried in the executable. Even so, I don't want to antagonize the manufacturer or original developers by going public domain and sharing my stuff here as long as it uses the original driver.

Off the top of your head, does the libusb you used have a windows equivalent against which I could "port" your usb code to use as an api to the kuhler?


Thanks!

I tried Asking ASETEK Nicely, and their PR guy said they would ask their legal dept. No response, so I figured I would try to clean-room reverse engineer it to keep myself free of their lawyers.

Libusb does have a windows version. It's totally cross-platform. so in theory, my code should also compile on Windows. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible, using only well known POSIX or standard API's.

You may need to get rid of the ChillContol V software and the driver for my code to work though, I might give it a try myself.

Feel free to give it a shot. A front end for Windows/UNIX would be nice. Maybe something cross-platform. Let me know if you have any questions or comments about the code!

Thanks!

Guys how strong is the pump on the 920?

Buying a case where all the fan point are 140mm so I'm toying with the idea of replacing the radiator with a 140mm one but not sure if the pump will take it or even what barb ID/OD I'll need to match the pump.

1/4 I.D. tubing and barb. Pump isn't very strong but should work for you.

Let us know how this goes for you. I hope I never have to find out how good (or bad) Antec's tech support and warranty is. When I opened my 620, the Intel thumbscrews were missing and it took two weeks for Antec to send the right ones. They kept sending the AMD thumbscrews, so now I have 20 of those...

they were good with me, but a little slow to respond / turn-around time (warranty wise)
