Sorry but if you check out tweak town-madshrimp and other reveiw sites-the Antec 920 beats the h70 at the same rpms, the h70 falls short of the antec 920 every time, they are not equal-in fact the 620 comes with in 1c-2c of the h70. Its always a good thing though to check atleast 5 or more reveiw sites on a peice of hardware.

Complete BS. I owned the H50, H70, Kuhler 620 and 920.

The H70 with the same GT AP15 in push/pull runs the same temperature as the Kuhler 620. The 920 is 5-6 degree cooler with the same TIM (Shin Etsu 7783D) etc...

The review at [H] is one of the reviews that I have called biased towards Corsair on other forums. I am not sure why. The reality is that all these units are all made by Asetek. Corsair just decided to switch their OEM and go with Coolit which left Asetek to retail through Antec. The 920 is one generation ahead of the H70. The Coolit units I have owned are a good generation behind so the waterblock on the H60 barely matches the block on the H70 so I am not expecting the H80 to perform any better than the H70 since it is an H60 with the same rad as the H70.

@Rafale77

Would it just be better to buy the Rasa750 240rad kit for $130 rather then the H100 for $120? Im currently running a 620, dunno if I should upgrade to something else

Why would you upgrade? According to your sig rig your 2600K runs at 4,2ghz and that should be _easily_ cooled by the 620.
Since I have almost got my 2500K stable at 5,0Ghz with this 620.

Do you have the stock fan or have you changed it?
I have GT AP-14 pushpull. Nice temps too.

My data simply do not support the 5-6 deg. delta between the H70 and 920.

I think the statement about [H] favouring Corsair is quite a fair one, but I doubt it stops with one brand only across the spectrum of review sites. Many of these reviews of items are of course more likely to be posted when the results favour the item being reviewed. There might even be a bandwagon effect too, where the results of previous reviews are expected, and then "duplicated" (happens all the time in my field).

Someone also needs to do a test that eliminates as many of the systematic uncertainties as possible (differences in smearing and distribution of paste, clamping pressure, use a controlled constant heat load, use an isothermal case and/or operating environment, and test many to look at unit-to-unit manufacturing differences). Until then a difference of even 1-2 degrees is meaningless, and of course a healthy skepticism of any measurement is always good.

Should I replace the ShinEtsu X23-7868-2D with AS5?
I have read that the fan speed is controlled by the pump, do I turn off PWM for CPU to have the pump at a constant 12.00v?

Well I'm going to swap my 620's paste to MX-4 when I get my enzotechs bmr-c1 for my gpu vrm.
I'll do my cpu+gpu pastes together to less hassle.
I'll report about my findings on stock/mx-4 sometime next weekend probly.

1million dollar question can you mount in Lian-Li Tyr 1000x? Since it only has 140mm Slots for coolers?

Yes if you call MacGyver about it.
E: And to properly answer your question, uhm, yes I think so.
Zip ties or a 140mm->120mm mounting bracket.

Hey, Guys.

Having a lot of trouble with fitting one of these in my mATX case. My only option is to front mount like this with the radiator on the inside.

Thing is there is exactly 25mm of space between the chassis and the front panel, so I can't have screws protruding from the front of the fan, otherwise the front panel will not fit, as you saw from the first image. My only option is to install it with the screws like this.

What I'm asking is; will I have to cut the screws to length? Or is it possible to screw them all the way through the radiator without damaging it?

Also, I've heard that a fan with high static pressure is best for the 620, can anybody suggest something better than stock off the top of their head?

Cheers.
