This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System
Pros: Haven't started it yet but I'm hoping for better temps than the Arctic Cooler I had on it from the buildup. Which is an ALL Newegg build.
I'm changing over to the Antec H2O 920 because the ARCTIC COOLING ACFZ13-PRO could handle the heat (65c warning from the Asus mobo) on the AMD3+ FX-8120 Zambezi just coping and burning a Blu-Ray.
I have had to remove the Rosewill 140mm upr fan for the rad to fit.
Cons: The last thing I did was to install the cpu cap.
What a pain in the rear.
I worked on it for an hour and gave up to get some sleep.
I sent 15 minutes the next morning and tried turning the cpu cap clock wise and then counter clock wise when the cpu cap went into place.
The Antec LED is not straight up and down but I'm leaving it alone.
A couple of issues:
1. The "K" item screws DO NOT screw into anything ?? The threads are toooo large for the back plate inserts item "F"
Luckily I did not have to use them for AMD3+ CPU
2. There is a ring which is not shown or listed on the installation guide. What is it for ?? I did NOT install it.
3. There are washer for the mounting screws " DO NOT USE THEM" I just used the screws along and they worked great.
I'm disappointed with the installation guide may need a revision so others can unstand it better
Pros: I haven't installed this PSU yet.
Cons: I purchased this item on the 13th which had a $30.00 rebate back from OCZ Tech. Then I go and fill out the rebate forms for OCZ and it shows me that it is for $20 and not $30.
I called the rebate center to find out what was up (they were very helpful) where there stated that sometimes the OEM and Newegg can get mixed up with rebates! So am I out $10.00 ?? it's not a lot but going through all the rebate process only to find something isn't correct.
Don't really know if it is Newegg's fault or not rebates can be a real pain in the rear.....
Pros: Installed inot the Rosewill RSV-S5 and formatted without any problems.
I did a full format so it did take a couple of hours but the drive was cool and very quite.
just orderd another one to add to the JBOD box.
Cons: None so farREAD FULL REVIEW
