I drained out the fluids, and filtered the coolant using coffee filters and a funnel. I had a black metal piece that almost looked like half of a very skinny ring, and a lot of metal shavings. I flushed it out a few times with some distilled, and filled the system with distilled for a test run. This time around it fired up when plugged in, and the pump ran just fine. After letting this run for several minutes, I drained out the distilled and refilled with the filtered coolant. I topped off with distilled as needed as I tried to work the air bubbles out.

It seems to be running okay now, and I guess I am "satisfied". Still somewhat frustrated at losing my evening due to some poor quality control though. My pump is only slightly less noisy than before, which is somewhat of a nuisance since I would consider it quite loud.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience that this caused you and please let me know if you have any other issues or concerns.

Thanks for the kind words. I am glad it is back up and running without needing an rma. Hopefully I won't have any problems in the future. I do understand the risks of being an early adopter, but it still sucks when you get burned lol.

LINK!

Thanks for the heads up. I have been looking for this cooler to come back in stock. Don't forget to use the promo code "xtreme" to save another $7. It was $145 shipped to CA.

Can someone help me figure out how to mount my H220 in this Arc Midi R2? It doesn't fit in the top in any orientation because either the reservoir or swivel fittings hit the side of the 5.25" bays. It also doesn't work in the front because the tubes aren't long enough to reach the CPU.

I got this case specifically because my old one couldn't fit the H220 and now this one doesn't either...

It definitely fits up top with the tube end toward the 5.25" bays. I just did it last week. The tubes themselves will be slightly inside the bays, but they won't rub the cage if you orient them properly.

Make sure you're lining it up with the proper 120mm fan holes.

I was at the Microcenter in Westmont IL today, they had four H220's on the shelf, may have more in the back.

You need to put the 90 degree fittings towards the 5.25" bays. But first you need to ditch the Blu Ray/DVD or CD rom drive and get a external drive. Then grab two pairs of channel locks and bend the bottom of the 5.25" bay bracket down ever so slightly. Then the 90 degree elbows should not hit the 5.25" bay any more or just remove it like I did. You can also make a bracket like mine and mount your fans in a push configuration.



Or you can pick up some new tubing and lengthen the hoses to reach from the front bezel. That would allow you to keep your drive bays.

Mine fit perfectly in the top of the R2 without having to bend anything and with a standard DVD burner in the top 5.25" bay. The tubes aren't touching or rubbing either. I hate to say it, but something's not right with your setup.

Perhaps you used the wrong screw holes?

Yeah the whole point of me choosing this case was to fit internal watercooling without modding... Almost any case can fit radiators if you mod it. If I was interested in modding to begin with I would have just modded my old case.
