I didnt know what to expect as to the temps as there where no reviews when I brought it, I reseated the waterblock 4 times to see if I could get an improvement, Im now using Arctic silver 5. I have no issues with those temps, 70 is quite exceptable for an I5 and at that temperature the fans on the rad are only spinning at 40% so its fairly quiet..
I could drop the temps a LOAD more by using the extreme profile and running the fans at 100% but I like my ears....

Playing the BF3 Beta on max settings my cpu is 62c and I cant hear the cpu fan over the vid cards, oh this is with a 23c ish ambient temp

Sorry I haven't posted back yet, for some reason this website isn't sending me emails when someone replies. Anyway, this is my current setup, was a Budget build so I'm using Stock fans from the case in the Window, and a Evercool aluminum Fan with blue LED's as the Exhaust. It may be a loud fan, but OMG the air it moves. Heres a pick of it open.

I wonder would it be a good idea to move the high CFM fan to push or possibly pull air on the radiator? Also, I'm thinking about making a partition panel to cut air hot air from the PSU off from the top of the Computer, and was gonna mount a fan to push air to the top into it.
Thoughts, oppinions, suggestions from others are highly welcome.

*Also, please be gentle about the wiring and especially the LED I rigged for more light. It's a temp fix til I can afford better lighting.

[Rear 8cm Exhaust Hole][Aluminium 8cm/12cm Fan Adapter][620 Radiator][Gentle Typhoon]

Or

[Rear 8cm Exhaust Hole][Aluminium 8cm/12cm Fan Adapter][Gentle Typhoon][620 Radiator]

I think the top setup is better as the radiator has metal to metal contact with a huge chunk or aluminium and the pc case which will aid cooling?

I know i have a bottle neck but im giving it a go anyway to see the results.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Hey guys, having trouble installing this. I posted the following over on my motherboard club, but I realized this is the better place to ask. Any advice besides refund?

Hey guys, I have this motherboard, Gene Z. I'm trying to install the Antec 620 Cooler backplate onto the back of the motherboard. The instructions don't show how to install the backplate for 1155. Also, no matter how I align the Intel Backplate, the holes do not line up with holes on the motherboard. At best, I can get 3 of the holes to match up. Also, to the left of the back of motherboard, there is a little raised square thats raising my backplate off too high away from the motherboard, so it does not sit flush.

Since I noticed there are people in this thread which have this cooler and this MB, I'm wondering how you guys got the backplate on?

EDIT: I just saw a bunch of reviews on Newegg which says this cooler doesn't fit into socket 1155 without modding/trimming. Misleading product since it states clearly it works with 1155. Guess its refund time

It should fit on 1155 just fine. 1155 is physically the same as 1156 with respect to heatsink mounting holes and I'm pretty sure Kuhler H2O units are working fine on 1156.

The 620 fits perfectly fine on 1155. I'm using it right now. Just use the 1156 holes and it'll line up perfectly..

if it was anything like the installation on my AM3, the holes weren't a exact fit, but close enough to get 3 lined up, and when you screw in 3 screws and get them lined up, the 4th will line up perfect. My only regret is when i put the double-sided foam on, I accidently touched it to the motherboard out of alignment, and had to force it around to fit.

New to the forums but lurking for a while using it to do research. I have the 920 and just replaced the stock loud fans with the GT1850.

At first I was not impressed as the temps went up to 69 deg during prime95 only after a few min, so being the lazy sob I am i started to swap the fans back with the system still running but P95 off. I heard some gurgling/air? in the rad so i gave it a good shake and put the GT1850 back on and everything is back to normal.

So far the temps with the GT 1850 are just about the same as the stock fans at full blast but much more quite. I am giving the GT1850 a big thumbs up.
Good Bye AMD

How do you have the GT 1850's hooked up, to the mother board or to a fan controller, and are you using the chill control software?

I have a question. Has anyone that kept the stock fans on the 920 noticed that after 2K on the fans it actually cools worse than at 1.5K? When my fans hit 2k, the liquid temps start climbing, not falling. That isn't even under load. This worries me cause what will it do under load? If this is the case, then I'm swapping the pull fan out with my aluminum fan. It seems to move WAY more air than the fans that came with it.

Also, will connecting a non PWM 3-pin fan effect this in any way? The aluminum fan I thought about using is only 3-pin. I can connect the fans on the Radiator elsewhere on my Motherboard, since all but one of the fan headers is a 4-pin PWM header.
