Thanks for the welcome, looks like a very active forum in here.
in my case, and in the case of many other users, the complaint is usually that the BIOS temps are higher, but that's not of importance, because you should (for the most part) ignore your BIOS temp, unless you're getting horrific readings. RealTemp is a good little program, and should give you a pretty accurate reading. If you're not happy with your temps once you're all booted up, think about your case airflow, or getting higher CFM fans for your radiator, or reseating your cooler with better thermal paste...those are some options.

The case has pretty good setup for cooling and temps were exactly like that in my old case which had worse fans setup.

Gotta get this one straight, otherwise I'll go nuts. :\\

Bad thing about this mb I have is that it doesn't seem to control either of the fans besides the CPU one which is controlled by the pump anyway. But it's still weird lolz... I added another fractal design fan as a push fan and connected it to the system 1 fan header. In the bios it reports RPM around 1300-1400rpm, w**? Doesn't make sense, the fan isn't spec'ed at 1000rpm?

Arghhhhh

Learning curve take a long time for these things :\\
+/- 10% is a cushion spec'ed by the manufacturer based on power fluctuations, and not a 100% given. for the most part, it'll bounce around that 1000RPM mark with no noticable difference in performance. what motherboard do you have?

ALSO *please fill out your system specs in the form provided in the "User CP" link at the top of this page, so we can reference what you have without asking all the time. it's a great feature of the site, and be sure to keep it current so we can all help you better.

Patched up my profile.

PSU in the picture above is my old one.

So can I keep the Fractal fan connected? I'm not sure it can push up to 2000rpm. :\\

hmm, so the pump RPMs should be pretty low? Mine have hung around 2.8K the whole time I've had it. It's not loud, just seems to always be running around 2.8K to 3K RPMs. Doesn't seem to keep my CPU as cool as I expected. Should I contact Antec and see if there is a possible problem with mine? Is 2.8-3K alright for the 920?

That might be typical for the 920 but I'm unsure and I think the pumps in both 620/920 are the same except for that led and slightly different logo design. I might be wrong tho !
post #948 of 6063
Hey guys I was thinking...is it possible to use a Y splitter on the pump fan connector to hook up 2 fans instead of one? It makes sense if the pump will control both fans equally but can it hurt anything?

I also read another interesting idea here:

http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho...php?t=18269595

Hooking the pump to a 3 pin header (say, the system 1 fan) so it gets full 12v power and then connecting 2 fans via 4 pin Y splitter to the CPU header and control the fans speed upon load from the BIOS. This way, you can bypass the noisy antec fan, run two fans at slightly lower speeds and basically make the whole thing a lot more silent! Dunno why I didn't think of this before!

Who ever looks at my spec and thinking "stock speed??", well it's because I haven't figured the cooling solution yet. I hope to get it oc'd @ ~ 4.4Ghz.

Much like adi518, I was wondering if plugging the pump into the CPU headermight be causing issues for me, since the CPU header is a PWM 4-pin. Should I try plugging it in a 3-pin header, since it is a 3-pin plug? that might would explain the high speeds of the pump, since if you plug a 3-pin fan into a PWM header it runs wide open. Also, if I'm not mistaken, there is a setting in BiOS that allows you to turn off the PWM on multiple PWM headers, converting it to a standard 3-pin header. May have to try this in a few. I also may have put way too much thermal compound on the pump, so... coming from a Socket A (462) processor to these, not used to using very little compound, and may have overdone it.

The pump should connect to the 4-pin cpu fan header. That's what the instruction say so it's 100% correct. Looks like the idea I gave earlier will work... I'm gonna do some more research and check my BIOS options for controlling the fans on the cpu header.
