Hello,
I am using an Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and an AMD FX8150 processor. The radiator fan on the cooler is dead (second one direct from Antec RMA) so I'm using a regular 120mm case fan. The system is not overclocked but I worry that things may be getting too hot for the processor. There are two other case fans in the case itself as well.

Obviously I'd rather have the fan that comes with the unit hooked into the board header for the CPU so as the BIOS can adjjust the speed as needed for optumum cooling. Any thoughts on what I can do? Is it strange to have 2 fans (one that came with the unit and it was RMA's for another one) DOA? Could it be the connector to the pump? I am very concerned.
Thanks for your help! :??:

Other system details
Video - Radeon HD 6xxxx
Board - Asus Sabertooth 990FX
Bios - 1304
Memory - Patriot 2x 4Gb 1866MHz
Power - XFX Bronze 750 Watt

  1. What are you temps like? You don't need the fan that came with the cooler. You can buy a better fan if you want.

    Hi Youngster,

    Please send us an e-mail at vip@antec.com We can order you the replacement fans if you want and since the unit has a 3 year warranty, we can based it from there.

    Thanks
