I just ordered H20 620 , there was nice special offer (44 euros) got also 2x 1850 rpm Gentle´s. My Silver Arrow is blocking top pci-e 1x slot so i cant use my soundcard, so i decided to get antec one. I was wondering, has anyone tested silver arrow vs H20 620? Also another question, tubes up or down? Which is the best way to install, seems that there mixed opinions from this.

I have been thinking of adding a second fan and getting some more long screws though.

*edit - ok I let it run 5 of the blend tests (stopped it when all 4 cores started #6. It took 4 minutes, no errors/warnings) just to see, and here are my max temps

Core0 - 58
Core1 - 60
Core2 - 67
Core3 - 66

Cores 2 and 3 have always been higher than 0 and 1, but I swear I've tightened the thing down properly and evenly. I don't want to crack the little plastic risers. Any ideas? And how do the temps look?

I'm not sure what the temp is here in the room, but my gtx570 is sitting at 39-40*C right now
Dude, you're temps are TOTALLY fine!
When you are doing IntelBurnTest/Linx or P95, if your temperatures are 90*C then it is okay. In normal use, you will NEVER reach the kind of load IBT/Linx/P95 puts your processor through.
And the core temp difference, remember those pictures about what the Sandy Bridge die looks like ?
Here you go, this should answer it.

But your temps does look a bit funny, since I always have core#1 and core#2 the higher than core#0 and core#3
But it is okay, it doesn't hurt your chip.

I have receive my H2o 620, and for me is a very effective cooling but, now my GPU and HDD is hot to compare with my hyper 212+


(after 1 hours of bad company 2) with room temperature ~25C

Before my H2o idle/load
CPU : 35 / 53
Core : 32 / 51
GPU : 34 / 70
HDD : 27 / 31
Motherboard : 30 / 42

For me is a good deal

That is not too hot for hdd!
You only should start to worry when they reach 50*C or go above 50*C.
afaik, 30-45*C for hdd is the Goldilocks zone

E: Btw, how is your antec kuhler/fans set up in your Kandalf?
As I look Thermaltake info page about Kandalf, there are many fan slots.
You have your Antec in REAR as a intake or exhaust?
If you have it as intake, I would recommend setting it as exhaust instead.
That is by looking at your case normal air flow.

Normal flow would be front intake, rear/top exhaust.
If you have your Antec as a intake, then the hot air from the antec will be sucked UP to your rear/top exhaust fan where your hdd's are.
That is not optimal imho.

Here's my 620 with x2 CM Excalibur fans.



Those fans are running 2150-2200rpm for the push fan and 2050-2100 for the pull fan. Talk about some major airflow and I even tapped the shroud holes on the pull fan to improve the pull static pressure on it (def made a dif in rpms and a bit of a dif in temps).

I have try 2 different airflow, the first :


with this airflow, my cpu reach 51C (load) 35C(idle) but my GPU/HDD has a lower temp

the second (i use that actually):



with that my CPU reach 45-46C(load) 27C~30c(idle) but my GPU/HDD has a higher temp ^^

I think i'm gonna try a third airflow like that :

Have the 920 running for a week now, was kinda sceptic on the sound production of the fans but the software is keeping them very quiet icw low temps so im glad i did not skip this set after seeing some videos on youtube.

Does anyone what sort of difference in temps there would be between push-pull AP-15s on a 620 compared to a single AP-15? The 620 has a thin rad so I know it wouldn't benefit as much as a 920 would in push-pull.

I dont see why it could either. I took mine apart to make some modifications and its literally water with some additives. Plus you can always modify it if you like later to add a resivour and other radiators later if you like.

nekon did you gut a spare fan to use as a shroud? I was sure its been done many many times but you read my mind lol, I moved the radiator outside of the case to have more room for this, there is so much waisted space that could get more airflow if the fans were farther from the radiator but still sealed.
