Apparently I was so gentle that i knocked the the head of the screw off.

I just got my 620 yesterday, I love it! I get 26 degrees idle and 37 at stock 6 cores x 3.2ghz on my 1090T and 33 idle, and 41 load at 4ghz on all six cores. It's a great cooler biggrin.gif

I was wondering if any of you are aware of ANY issues with the Antec Kuhler 920?

Reason I am asking is that I heard (and personally experienced) some issues with the Corsair ones. These issues range from erratic fan behaviour (if connected to the built-in fan controller), fan controller not functioning at all, no lights light up, air in system loop & parts (palstic cover) coming off from early batches due to bad adhesive. Now recently there has been a partial recall on the the Corsair H100's.

Have any of you heard of or had personal similar bad experiences with the Antec Kuhler 920?

The Antec Kuhler 920 is a Asetek product and the Corsair H80/H100 is a CoolIT product.

I personally purchased a Corsair H100 (CoolIT) and had to send it as it was faulty to start with.

As mentioned before, there are quite a bit of issues with the H80/H100 (CoolIT) kits. See my post - http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=99732

Since I am in South Africa, I have to work through local distribution channels for RMA. Problem is I may end up getting the same stock replacment from the same faulty batch.

Maybe thinking of rather getting an Antec instead. That is why I wanted to know if any of you have had or heard of such bad experiences with the Antec Kuhler 920?

Finally got my replacement H100!

My initial unit had a batch/lot code of 11289403 and had fan controller issues.

The "supposed" problematic fan controllers came from batch/lot code 11359403 "only" (don't think so though).

My replacement unit has a batch/lot code of 11389403 - guys, please hold thumbs that this boy is the one to work its magic... worriedsmiley.gif

I think I may have to re-seat my pump, since the Temps are, as I can tell from others, rather high for my Mostly stock settings. I have bumped the NB up just a bit, but the CPU and everything else is bone stock. Now, with Ambient Temps around my computer at 28C, running nothing for over 3 hrs, I get a Temps of: NB=47C, GPU=35C, HDD=32C (these 3 are from my NZXT probes which are known to be off by +/-5C), Core Temp=30, Liquid temp=37C, GPU=34C(MSI Afterburner). What should I do? Knock off 2 cores? Run stock NB? Re-seat the Pump? The only thing else I can think of is move the Server and laptop that are within 3 feet of each other. Just imagine the temps under a load in 38-40C ambient temps, which I get regularly. heres screen cap of idle stats.

*NMD, figured out the problem, I've been manually entering the MAX voltage for this processor, decided to undervolt it. Now everything is running alot cooler:)

I just installed the Kuhler 920 in my sig rig, and I had a question. Is it normal that I receive a CPU fan error! on boot? I read around, and people usually seem to just unable the warning message, I was wondering if I should do the same? The drivers are working properly, and the cooler is working without any problems, as is the PC, and I'm running at 34°C on idle.

The CPU fan error happens becaue the pump is not plugged into the CPU fan plug. This is normal and how it should be. You can turn the monitoring of for the CPU fan, then you wont get errors. If you can its also good to set monitoring on for the plug that the cooler's on.
Edit: CPU fans use a 4 pin PWM (speed controlled connector), while the cooler is not speed controlled and therefore uses a 3 pin plug.

Hello everyone.
I have a Antec Kühler H2O 620 coming in the mail along with my 2500K.*
Looks like I'll be joining this club next week. biggrin.gif


Before it arrives I have a few questions, and I am hoping that some fellow owners could answer them for me. smile.gif

1. Does anyone know what thermal paste the cooler has pre-applied? I only have some really old AS5 laying around here, and I really don't want to have to buy anything else.

2. Have any of you experienced a temperature change based on how the radiator was mounted? (Tubes coming out of the top vs out of the bottom)

3. (If you own a 2500K) What kind of temperatures have you seen when using ~1.4v? I have read a lot of different reviews about this cooler, but none have really used the 2500k. I'm hoping that it can handle 1.4v with the proper fans. smile.gif


I can't wait to try this cooler out. Hopefully it will work pretty well with my set up. I have an existing fan so I will have a push/pull configuration.

paste is ShinEtsu X23-7868-2D, better than AS5.

and to 2, not really, but fan setup may change temps in some cases, antec recommends: case - <--(airflow) fan - rad.

I'll use the stock TIM then. I'm glad that they didn't cheap out on it. smile.gif

I'll keep in mind how Antec says the air flow should be. I'll have to play around with which fan to put on each side. They will be different fans so I hope I don't have any air turbulence issues. I'll be running both at 100%.
