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.

The system (620) is designed to be a pull system. I wonder why they didn't design it as a push if it works better that way.

Yeah but the problem I am having is constant, not just when it turns on. But doesn't matter, Antec is sending a new one!

I'm just telling people what Antec discovered after testings. You can find it out at the Antec blog.

Just an update:

After some more experimentation, I decided to remove one of the fans I was using in a push/pull config. I have the stock fan now being used as intake (pulling cold air from the back of my case into it) and am now seeing significantly better temperatures than I was prior.

I recommend people who are using the push/pull config to try removing one of the fans and seeing if they notice a difference.

Edit: I'll probably switch to a 1450 RPM Gentle Typhoon in the future. Will let you guys know how that works out.

I heard the typhoons arent that great for radiators. Depending on the fin spacing I think.

I'm using 2x Blade Masters by Cooler Master. 3.96 mmH2o 2k rpm.
Not sure what other fans provide high static pressure other than the ones I'm using. Could not find any info on the fans except the ones that had significantly lower static pressure like .8, 1.6 and so on. 3.9 seems good to me unless I missed on some other fans with higher static pressure that obviously didn't list that information.

I tried looking for the air pressure, but couldn't find it so I got these.

Honestly I wouldn't trust CM fan specs. Their other R4 fans are rated at 90CFM and <20 dba... in reality they are around 70-75 cfm and 25-30 dba. the 3.96mmH2O I don't believe at all, it's probably closer to 2 if I had to guess.

Thanks for the tip. I was looking at this thread:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/595674-best-radiator-fans.html

The gentle typhoons got some decent opinions out of people, so I'll probably go with those though. That being said, my rig won't be updated until 20 May, so I'll take a look at the CM fans.

My requirement is something that will provide decent performance at a relatively silent operation.

I read a review and they got better results using a single fan. Odd though.

I assume you have your case fans arranged so your airflow going from back to front?

My rig is a little hard to explain since I have so many fans (preparing for the summer). This picture doesn't have all of my fans installed, since I just did that recently. I'm just pointing out the airflow paths.

You have some serious positive air pressure in there. That's good.

I might have to try something like that. We've been having some warmer days here in Maryland and the upstairs room gets pretty damn warm and I noticed when stress testing my cpu hit 61C even with the H2O as a result of high ambient air temps.

So maybe I should try pulling in air from outside the case. Might help some. Plus I think I could use some more positive pressure in my setup.

Yeah, it's a lot. The clear 120mm I have on the windowed side panel is exhaust because there was enough air pressure in the case to force air out in that direction without a fan. I just added the fan so that it'd assist the two 140mm on the top.
