Have place paste so that it covers the whole CPU. Just wish I could get the temps down, my old freezer pro got these temps that way I thought I'd get the 620.

Hey guys,

I picked up a 920 about 2 weeks ago to cool my 2500k. It's running at stock clocking right now. I have a cosmos S case, which has my kuhler running on intake push pull into the chassis, with 3 basic case fans on top exhaust, a Kaze on the floor intake, a intake fan in the front, and a 200mm intake on the side. I have 2 GT's 1850's on the way to replace the stock fans.

My biggest concerns are my temps, and if they are normal, and how I should improve them.

I've been playing some games that put me at about 50-70% CPU load during gaming, which generally has me running at around 38degrees water temp with 45-49 core temp. I've been using one of the recommended programs + hwmonitor to check the core temps. I'm not sure if this is far too high, considering I am not screwing with the voltage at all. Idle, I've seen as low as 29c water temp with 32-35 idle.

Basically though, I wanted to see what you guys think my fan directions should be? I was thinking of moving the cpu fans to exhaust, and then moving gall other fans to intake, including the top fans, and only using my 920, and Video card as exhaust fans. This should drop the internal ambient of the case, since my room is around 74-77f at any given time, and remove the fact that I may be drawing heat from my Video card into the system by having my 920's on intake.

I'm also thinking that due to the cores running as high as they are, my paste may not have been seated fully, even though I did a bit of a spinning action when I put the cooler on (stock paste) to spread it, but may have not done a full spread, so I may loosen the system up and do a bit more spreading w/o lifting the CPU up.

Long post, but I want to make sure this is right, because I'd really like to gun for a 4.3 overclock with stable temps, and have my ram running at 1600, as intended.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the feedback and insight.

Not sure if anyone here has modded their 920, but its just like the h70. Did a twin radiator mod to mine, worth 6-8c at full load from just a single radiator with resivour. Gaming is also maybe 4-5c cooler, Hoping to push my overclock a little higher now.

Im not running an intel so cant tell you if thats good or not but if you need a bit more cooling try shin-etsu x23 thermal paste, there are some other better ones but my local frys stocks it and it dropped my temps down by 2-3*c overal idle/load. I personally run the radiator as an exhaust which I think the book even says to do so. Corsairs h70 says run it as an intake, the h70 and 920 are extremly similar but 920 is I guess the newer generation plate. when I switched from the h70 I didnt even need to swap the mounting brackets. I eventually added a resivour which helped with short term cooling greatly but long term as in over an hour of gaming in an 80F room temps eventually get back up there, so I added a second radiator. Look up the h70 or h50 mod to find all you need. The antec 920 is a great cooler and Im sure your temps will show it, I never ran it with the stock paste just artic silver and shin-etsu.

edit...even stock the h70 and 920 did a great job cooling, I only modded to try to push my cpu even harder with great temps.

Maybe you could have the fan on intake? At default reviews say it hits 60-65c at load.

nice!
sure you get around 4.5ghz on that nicely!

Will give it a try when I get a minute, build a shed at the moment.

So I should be will be getting the 920 in a few days, was wondering if the fans I have will burn out my extreme4 gen3 mobo header?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835706036

And also where is the best place in my HAF932 to place them? Was thinking as a rear exhaust or top intake, but not sure what space to use. Wanted to put the rad w/fans right next to the rear 140mm fan, but if they are right there would they disrupt the airflow to that fan from within the case?

Cant wait to get it running and join the club, lol. Should be great

Thanks dude, Currently working on getting 4332mhz prime stable. It stable enough to play crysis2 and run a media benchmark from customPC but prime beats it up. I think its my motherboard thats really limiting me (msi). Playfully set to 4500 and it started windows but freezes, might be able to stabilize that with voltage but want to work on 4332 first

Im not sure it will work as a top intake setup since it will probably hit the ram and or heatsink. Rear exhaust is how I used it before modding it.

I gotta look into those fans, are they what most people run in here?
