Installed my 620 too.
Push: CM Sickleflow at 1000RPM
Pull: Coolink SWIF2 120 at 1000RPM

CPU temps, stock 2500k
Idle 35°C
Load ~50°C (BFBC2)

If i crank up the fans to 1500rpm, i can get some -5°C more... and still not THAT loud. So all in all, i am happy with it for now

Does any one know of any hacks or mods to the antec software? I really wish we could set the minimum fan speed. I wish it could be more like gpu software where you can change the fans speed a lot more precisly. A min of 800 would be nice and then have their ramp speed control take over from there

Hi, for begin i just want apologize for my english is not my native language

I have some questions about the H2O 620.
Actually i have a hyper 212+ with 2 aerocool sharkfan in push/pull and i want o/c my CPU, but i think the hyper 212+ is a little weak for an o/c

Do you think my temperature will go down compared to my hyper 212 ?
my cpu is at 35~38°C in idle and 47~52°C in load with an ambiant room at 25°C

I have 2 xigmatek mono cool for manage my speed fan, can i adapt that for a push pull on the h2o 620 ?

Once again i apologize for my English i just want improve my english language skills.

Cant say for sure, but my hunch is that its gonna be the same. As for the fans, yes you can install any fans but you will only be able to control one of them, the other one will be controlled by the built-in antec software.

The 920 has control software. The 620, which I own (to my knowledge) has not.
I have the pump plugged in to the 3-pin PWR-fan connection on my board (connecting it to a 4-pin PWM would have the same effect, insuring the pump runs at full steam -- or at least above it's 1000ish rpm limit bellow which it starts making chugging noises) and my fan, Gentle Typhoon 1850(AP-15), into a case fan connector. Asus' Fan Xpert software, luckily, bases all fan speeds on the cpu temps, so with some tweaking I found good settings.

I think you are going to see *some* improvement, but don't expect miracles.
For instance: what do you base your load temps on? A gaming session, or stress testing?
I ask because in my setup, with the 620 + AP-15 as exhaust, gaming hasn't been able to push the cpu beyond 45 C, where as Large, in-place FFT's run by Prime95 heated the cpu up to 50 degrees C (I actually had my cpu reach 55 with the 620 once, but that was while also stressing my gpu to the limit)

I don't know how good the Hyper 212+ is, but it's in the same price range as the the Artic Xtreme Freezer rev.2, right? I know, it's bad policy comparing performance based sollely on market price, but I also happen to own a Xtreme Freezer rev.2, so for arguments sake, let's assume performance is about the same to the Hyper 212+.

My system runs at a mild overclock: multiplier at 18, vcore 1.325 V (a slight undervolt), NB-CPU at 2600 MHz and NB voltage raised by 0,2 V.
With the Freezer Xtreme and it's (admittedly:weak) stock fan, that maxes out at 1300 rpm, I got temps of 60 C with Prime95. "Not bad at all,..." I thought. Until I looked at the CoreTemp gadget I have running on my desktop: only two of my four cores were active -- the cpu had throttled down to prevent over-heating, it seems.
Next, I replaced the stock fan with the AP-15, and lo and behold: maxed at 53 C and all four cores active.

So, to recap: the Antec H2O 620 is a great cooler, performs better than budget air-coolers, matches the performance of high-end air coolers.
You can expect a drop in maybe a few degrees C and maybe some more overclock headroom with a 620, but if overclocking headroom is your main goal, why not consider the 920? I've no experience with it's bundled software, but a bigger (thicker) radiator = more cooling surface = most of the times a good thing.

Cheers!

PS - Your english isn't that bad. And it's not like I'm a native speaker either, so I bet my monologue, upon scrutiny, is riddled with mistakes

Thanks for your reply.

For my temps in load is obtained with occt or prime, in game my temps is 44-50°c i think is very nice with a Hyper 212+ (This is a very effective and cheaper air cooling for me)
But the phenom 965 have a maximum operating temperature of 62C degrees and i think with an o/c this temperature is reached (with my air cooling)

I think I will buy the h2o and for the futur i'm trying to buy a real watercooling.

thx for your help

No problem. I too run a Phenom II 965 (C3 stepping), and while with the Freezer extreme I tried out on it, it disabled 2 of 4 cores, the TjMax coretemp reports is way too high I think: 90 C. I've also read the cpu shuts down when reaching 65 C to prevent damage to the chip.

Tell me, do you run your phenom overclocked now? Or have you kept stock values? I know with stock speeds, I can lower VCore to arround 1,20 V, which lowers the heat output very much.

My phenom is a 'temporary' processor until I buy a bulldozer somewhere next year for my am3+ board, so the mild overclock I run on mine is more than enough. My GPU seems to be the bottleneck now (a humble HD5750 ).

Actually i have kept stock values for a moment, i want try to reach ~4ghz but i have no time with my job for handle that.
i would like to see a benchmark with a bulldozer, I hope that AMD will give us a good processor ^^

Worst case if your not happy you can always modify it like many in here have to add a radiator or resivour etc. I have two radiators on my 920. I didnt really need it but my room in the summer can get a little warm until the ac really starts working lol. Im running two 120mm radiators with my 920 plate but my MAX temp (with oc in sig) on prime smallfft after 1hr is 43-45c, 43c if room is at 70-75F (21-23c). I ran prime once while my room was 92F/33c and my max after 1hr was 47c but i never let my room get that hot so it was more like a stress test on my cooling system. gaming on crysis 2 which uses 6 cores after the patches maxes at 32-34c usually. If my room is warm (80F) it can get up to 38c

Raephen,
I may try connecting the fans to the mobo and see the control I get with the asus setup, I really like how I have 3 plugs for the cpu on the CHvF

Let me know how that works out for ya.
Your board and mine are from the same generation at Asus - yours is 990FX based, right? So unless I'd think you'd have some of the same bundled software (AI Suite II - Fan Xpert is part of that).
