I dont believe it needs to be a 4 pin, as in PWM control, in order for the 920 software to recognize the fan. a 3 pin should work just as well. It's really personal choice. Yate Loons are quiet at low RPM, along with Noctuas. There have been way too many past debates on that subject to go into it again.

Yeah you'll need 4 pin to get it to work properly. There are options, and they are silent. Typhoon fans for example have had good things said about them on here.

As for the v1/4 discussion here's what Antec said:
Thank you for contacting Antec Inc. In regards to your question, there is not much of a difference between the Version 1 Kuhler 920 to the Version 4 Kuhler 920. The difference between them is the Version 1 has the kits for the LGA 775, 1155 and 1366. It doesn't have the proper brackets for the socket LGA2011. It also can support any AMD sockets. Version 2, they came out with a newer mounting brackets for LGA1155, 1366 and 2011; they got rid of the LGA 775 rails because they where least requested that time. Version 3 unit had the upgraded Chill Control Software V 1.0 and the Version 4 came out with the Chill Control Software V 1.2 and also came out with the Chill Control Software VI for Windows 8 fix but there was alot of bugs and issues with the software that's why we asked the customer to downgrade to the Chill Control V 1.2.

The Kuhler 620, 920 and 1220 are all made by Asetek and we are coming out with our own Liquid Cooling unit. Kuhler's 650, 950 and 1250 will be coming out soon. The difference between these liquid cooling units prior to the old ones are re designed bigger pumps than the Asetek models. We've moved the pump near the radiator and the fan because on the Asetek design, the cooling plate, when get's hot, the impeller on the pump is affected by heat that the CPU is generating. Which causing the pump to either seize up or you'll hear the pump clicking noise. Just a FYI, the new Kuhler's looks like the pump is in parallel with the air fan motor but it's generally, 2 motors, 1 motor for the pump unit and 1 motor for the fan unit. The Kuhler 1220 that was designed by Asetek only has a single pump for the 240mm radiator. The Kuhler 1250 that will be coming out has a dual pump design for better cooling options. We should be releasing the new Kuhler's by this coming September.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. warranty.info@antec.com

So, it absolutely has to be 4 pin in order for the software to recognize it? It doesnt work the same way as some motherboard headers, where 3 pin and 4 pin fans can get the same speed control and rpm reading?

Nop, has to be 4 pin on order for you to control it.
3 pin works and is recognised, but runs at max rpm and you're unable to control. As for motherboards, they on the other hand can control 3 pin and 4 pin ones - that's what I've got setup

I'm using Cougar Vortex's (the PWM 1500 RPM ones) on this 920. Works with the software to control fan speed just fine and of course is much quieter. Any decent PWM fan is most likely quieter than the stock fans.

They didn't seem to mention any of the physical differences easily noticed in the pictures by spikezone. A larger pump/block, different cold plate, and uses more power(guess that one wasn't easily noticable tongue.gif). thinking.gif

I was just looking at those. Thanks for the heads up

Have you noticed any difference in the cooling? I ask because the CFM rating on the cougar is 70ish while the stock antecs according to newegg is 110.

Don't know that I would pay the $15-16 for them, got all 8 of these on sale for little under $10 each.

If you look in my sig there's some testing I did with a Helix, Vortex and stock 620 fan. The 620 fan is different from the 920 fans but still very loud.

I am looking to replace my Kuhler 620 fan. Temps are not the problem on original fan but noice and looks are. Corsair SP120 seems to be a nice fan. Quiet or performance edition, 3pin or pwm, that is the question. At the moment i run my 620 like it is shown in the manual. I am possibly going to plug the pump to PSU and fan to motherboard cpu-fan location.

If i get the 3pin version, does it run full rpm all the time? And pwm does choose rpm itself?

Yes very true. I'll ask for clarification
