I decided to attach the 3 pin heat-sink power connector connected to the CPU_FAN connector and the Noctua power connector to the CHA_FAN.

infini if you can connect that to the PSU with a molex adapter 12v -> 3pin
post #4243 of 6063
What will be the difference if i connect the 3 pin heat-sink power connector straight to the molex adaptor?

The pump will be working at 100% for you to have the best performance out of the cooler, and you dont push the board 3 pin to far i guess the pump uses a bit of power more then a normal fan

Spread method has been proven to be the worst method to use. Never spread it.

Ah yes CLU uses spread method.
Temp gains from CLU are only 1-2c and a pain to remove on the IHS - so I never bothered with it.
I got CLU on the die though tongue.gif

Dear m00moo,

This will be no problem as long it does not cause any warranty claims that can be connected to the lapping.

Best regards,

ANTECsupport

In other words as long as the lapping doesn't cause any damage then you still have warranty.

I realize that you are getting frustrated, but it does work with the AMD chip when installed properly (as I said before, I first used my 920 on a FX8150. And I think the instructions for this cooler could be a lot better, but even so, you should be able to knock this out. Just double check your work with the instructions and make sure you're looking at the AMD instructions and not the INTEL. Also, I think T Dubbed said he made a video. Perhaps you may want to check that out as well

Ok, at the risk of annoyance, I have to ask what are the offset fittings again? I still cannot get this thing in two holes line up perfectly but the other two wont. I know I have the AMD piece because the other one is not anywhere close to fitting over top, and before anyone asks I have not been working on this since my last post on this because of work and sleep for work. Also, I have watched the video like 4 times before writing this along with reading the instructions, and I am apparently missing something because the lightbulb has still not switched on.

OK,,,

As I recall, when I first used it on my AMD board with a FX-8150 chip:

1) I removed the fan bracket that was installed on my MSI MOBO.

2) I put the 2 adhesive strips on the rectangular plastic back plate that came with H20

3) Installed the metal nuts into the back plate

4) Installed the back plate to the back side of the MOBO

5) when you assemble the pump fastener ring, make sure the plastic bits are installed correctly, I believe this is where you will run into the alignment problems. because there is 2 plastic pieces that snap together for each screw and they are offset. You have to refer to the manual to determine which way they should be installed. If I recall, the offset should be towards the outside for all 4 corners pushing the screws outward.

6) after assembling the screw clips and you install the screws, then put the metal ring over the pump and from the other side, snap the plastic ring into the metal ring, THIS REQUIRES A BIT OF EFFORT TO DO

7) Then at that point, you should be ready to set the pump on top of the CPU and screw the screws into the back plate I STARTED THE OPPOSITE HOLES FIRST, IT TOOK A BIT OF EFFORT BUT IT WORKED FINE.





Look at this picture from the ANTEC manual. you need to make sure that the clips are installed in such a way that the screws are furthest away from the pump

Clear as mud??? blinksmiley.gif

Hope this helps.
