    In exactly the same way as running an ordinary program. Instead of right-clicking the program executable and setting compatibility mode, you do so with the installation program. This is often install.exe or, as in your case, setup.exe. Bearing in mind that these drivers were created long before any versions of Windows 8 were available (official or otherwise), and that there aren't any newer drivers on the Antec website (I've checked), it is possible that this might or might not work.

    If that is the case, you might be better off replacing the cooler with a simple HSF assembly that doesn't require a software program to function correctly. I know that the cooler you've got wasn't exactly cheap, but if it isn't working because of the driver problem, you could end up having to replace your processor as well.

    Well, I uninstalled ChillControl, ran setup in compatibility mode, and then ran the new program in compatibility mode (and without compatibility mode). Unfortunately, I still got the same error as before.

    Fortunately, the cooler still is working fine for everyday tasks (I've been carefully monitoring temps). I may be downgrading to Windows 7 to fix this problem; it'd be less work than replacing the cooler again. Thanks for the help, and if anyone has other thoughts, I'll try it out.

    Antec Kuhler and Win 8

    I am running the Antec Kuhler 920 under windows 8 with no problems. I "updated" the driver by putting in the disk that came from Antec and told it to search manually. It found and installed the driver without a problem.

Hello all, for a'while I had been wondering why there were so many grayed out and seemingly out of place drivers on my laptop. For them to be grey, I assume they simply are not being used at the moment. I believe they may have been the leftovers from the stress testers and the tech team that worked...
