As long as it lists the RPM around 1380-1400 in the BIOS, the pump is technically working at 100%. The fan is connected to the (female?) adapter that's also connected to the pump, and this control's the fan's RPM by determining how hot the thing is getting.

Thanks Manooti.

No problem. Make sure you use some washers as to not puncture the radiator. GL thumbsupsmiley.png

Just added one of these bad boys to my gf's rig too. She's running an i3 550 at stock. Idles @ ambient and load temps @ 48. Ambient is 21 degrees C.

Her case is so much better than mine and that used to be my case until I went with the Rosewill Destroyer.

Here is a pic. Still working with wire management as one of the side fans took a crap on me two seconds after plugging it in. Lights up but won't spin frown.gif

Awesome man. Your cable management is starting to look a lot better.

Thanks but her pc is a lot easier to configure. My PSU's cables are longer and no where to tuck them. The destroyer is very tight with everything I have. 2 fans on top, 1 in front, 1 on back, fan controller, too many wires for a rosewill destroyer.

One day I'll afford a full tower, hopefully lol redface.gif

Assuming you had high static pressure fans... Maybe 2 PWM san ace/delta's ... you'd get better performance from the 920. The 920 beats the 620 in raw performance, but the 620 doesn't require fans with as much static pressure because the rad isn't as thick. This means you would be able to get away with 1 good san ace/delta fan vs two.

It's a pretty touch debate, and a lot of it has to do with your fan selection, and fan controller options. I think the best setup would be some San Ace fans on a fan controller with a 920. You got the silence when you need it, and the performance when you need it.

Probably the 620s. The Noctuas are great fans but they have low static pressure... I don't even think they have over 2mmH2O. Would be a lot easier for them to push air through a 620 rad than a 920 rad.

Nice to see this place picking up smile.gif

Remember to add yourself to the list!

I hear you on the rad issue. In fact, that is holding up the build now and I'm hoping to source four proper length temporary screws from a local hardware shop on Monday. The combination of a duct flange, air diverter and 55mm fans will make it a bit tricky on that end, but I'll manage.

Wire management will be a challenge for me as well due to the case I'm using, a Mountain Mods Pinnacle 24. But at nearly 50% off, I couldn't pass it up, same for the Triebwerk fans. As usual, you do what you can with what you have on hand - and for some crazy reason that's the fun part.

Thats the best part. Doing with what you have brings out the creativity wink.gif

Haha, I wish manufacturers would put at least 1 1/2 - 2 inches of space for the back panel of the case. That's probably the hardest part for me.

I'm using a crazy amount of fans in my rig.

I have two for the push/pull config that's being used as intake

I have two on the very top as exhaust.

I have two on the bottom as Intake.

I have three in the front as intake.

And I got one of those memory coolers.

Kinda sucks, cause I'll have to redo all my wiring once I purchase a new set of fans on the 20th.

Personally, I've never used a full tower case. It's probably a ton easier to work with, but I've never wanted a case that big. Anyway, GL with your rig, man.

I had it plugged into the motherboard header indeed. Now I plugged it into my fancontroller and I noticed that the sound goes away if I undervolt it, but isn't that bad for the pump?

I saw some people running the fan in pull configuration only. I recommend using a push configuration if you using 1 fan. Theres 1-2ºC difference in doing that. As for the pump problems, I haven't had the issue. If you hear water moving sometimes after turning the computer ON, is because the unit is not 100% water filled, theres a bit of air so the liquid can expand with the heat.
