if you scroll to the bottom of the embedded list and click google docs you should be able to edit it. its shared to edit with the public so anyone should be able to edit it.

EDIT: updated the reviews for the 920

I can't seem to edit the list:
When I click on Google Doc, it opens my Google doc account and I do not see this list as being shared.
If I click just the link on the first post. I open the spreadsheet but I cannot edit it. I do see it as being listed as public but it is not in an editable format.

You will find using two fans instead on one leads to a great benefit in keeping temps close / at room ambient.. As for those specific fans - they should be fine.. Are they (Your XLFs) better fans? Define better? Higher airflow means better to you?

Then No - The one that comes with it has a higher airflow than those, but a higher RPM which means you can expect the XLFs to be a bit quieter..... However, you have two of these (well 3, but you can only USE 2 on the cooler, unless someone has some other ideas for ways to mount 3~) and only one of the fans that come with it... Either use your two XLFs or mix and match... it doesn't matter to me (because I'm sure the temp diff will be minimal -- but I know we strive for the best in this forum.....I just strive to make it thru another day ) but someone else can tell you what's best with that situation.

Will using lower airflow fans have an impact on temps over those using louder higher airflow fans? Yes. Will this impact be substantial? No, not if you're going between the default fan and the XLF fans...

Can anyone give you an exact temp variation compared to another higher flow fan? I bet someone will try - but honestly this is not possible to test for certain unless YOU do the testing in YOUR environment with YOUR case and YOUR setup...

Be happy you don't have to drop 20 dollars on higher speed higher noise fans... if those single digit temp differences become a bother - upgrade to louder faster fans... if not - don't give it a second thought and be happy with your new cooler! ^_^ Good luck either way, and enjoy the cooler. Even when I was using a single fan I thought it was a massive improvement over the cooler I was using prior.... and once I added that second fan - it just gets better and better~ Now - I can't stop recommending these coolers to peers and putting them in other builds!

Just some fan info for thoses looking to try new ones insted of the stock ones,wich are very good fans by the way. I have been useing the scythe 88cfm and the 110 cmf fans for cooler and part of my case fans, i realy like theses fans plus there only like 7-9 dollars a peice at newegg, check out my sig rig and my temps, i have 2 110cfm,s scythe fans as push pull on my 620 with fan controlers,the only noise i get from them is wind noise and at full speed not bad at all. But i also have a couple of the 88cfm,s as case fans as well.

By the way-i upped my over clock to-1.47vcore @ 4.155 now and my n/b 1.35v @ 3080, only raised my 24/7 temps at stess testing by 1c.

Well the Xigmatek XLF's are rated @ 61 CFM @ 1500 R.P.M @ <20dBa each and apparently have high torque and static pressure (unable to find the static pressure measurement).

The standard single Antec fan that comes with the 620 is 81 CFM @ 2000 R.P.M @ 27dBa but sounds louder and i'm unable to confirm whether it does indeed push that much CFM.

My case has excellent air flow, using the cm sniper ive got a 200mm fan at the front as an intake, one on the side panel which will be quite near to the fitted 620 and also another 200mm exhausting at the top, the 200m fans are the storm force rated @ 142 CFM @ only 1000 R.P.M

As i have 3 brand new Xigmatek fans sitting here i was hoping someone may already have compared some of these to the standard fan to give me some sort of idea on whether they perform better and if so then i'd fit 2 of them instead of using the standard fan, my personal thinking was that with the 2 Xigmatek fans combined stats in theory the cooler should perform better and from personal experience these fans @ full speed are fairly quiet.

Thanks for your imput, appreciated.

Dave.

Hi there,

I'm new here but I'm desperate at this point to get my Kuhler 920 installed again. I don't have my original CD and am trying to get the driver to install. I've downloaded the 1.1 driver from Antec's site and it keeps giving me an error code 39 when installed (Windows 7 SP1 x64).

Could someone upload the 1.0 driver somewhere? I'm at my my end...

Thank you in advance, sincerely.

New review of 920 over at the at [H]ardOCP. Check it out. Max performance identical to the H70 in every test within the uncertainties of the measurements (+/- 1 degree likely). No surprise I suppose. I have both in two otherwise identical systems (Gigabyte P55A-UD3P, core i7 860 @ 4.2 GHz 1.41 VCORE, 4Gb Corsair RAM @ 2 GHz1.71 VDIMM, HX650 PSUs) and cases (NZXT Lexa S) and sure enough in a side by side (same thermal paste: SEX23-7783), both perform identically within error.
