    Antec announced today that it is giving away free socket LGA2011 brackets for existing owners of its Kuhler H2O 920 and Kuhler H2O 620 closed-loop CPU water coolers. The two were released before Intel launched its new socket, and so there are large stocks in the market that lack LGA2011 brackets. To avail this offer, existing owners have to write to Kuhler.eu@antec.com with a proof of purchase of their product, and shipping address. Antec also announced that it has started bundling the LGA2011 bracket with all fresh batches of Kuhler H2O 920 and Kuhler H2O 620, which will start shipping from its factories in February.

    I dont need one, but at the same time it would boost the resale value of my 920

    Indeed! All the manufacturers have been releasing these brackets for ages, I was just waiting for Antec to follow. X79 here I come. :)
    EDIT: @FreedomEclipse: It's a bit noisy, isn't? :laugh:

    with stock fans then yes. I usually had my fan control set to 25/50 or 22/50 and it used to create quite a racket as I was using a rather cramped Antec 902 back then.

    you need to switch the fans over to some Scythe AP-15 GT's. you lose PWM control but trust me - these fans are so quiet at full speed and they move so much air you can just leave them running.

    I have like 6 fans in the draw of my desk: Akasa Apache, Noctua, Enermax, Scythe, etc ... some with 3 pins and some with 4 pins and PWM; it's called "pure laziness" :) EDIT: Was just playing Rage and my computer BSOD'd; I thought it was going to take off.

    dont use akasa apaches - they dont spin fast enough, nor do they move enough air. Ive heard of people using vipers though, but most people will recommend scythe GT's
