With that case you would be good with either the st30 or the xspc ex360 rads. I had that case at one time, highly doubt you can fit anything more than a 30mm rad in it. I too had the h220 but it wasn't enough for me.

it depends if you want push and pull or push or pull.
25mm fans with 55mm for a rad. or if you put the fans between the case and front bezel, you have 80mm for a rad.
really it just depends on how many fans you want to use.

Okay... I am thinking of cooling a 3770k and a 780Ti w/EK water block. Do you think the H220 will be enough with a 360mm radiator? I want to push the voltage quite a bit with the Ti(1.3-1.35v 24/7).

I plan to do a simple pull configuration.

That was my next question Is the pump that comes with the H220 going to have enough flow to push the water threw the blocks. 1GPM is not much. From everywhere I read your base remainder should be 1GPM after all rads and blocks are taken into consideration.

Here goes some in from martins on it but i dont see the flow anywhere

Swiftech H220

Speed PWM adjustable 1200 ~ 3000 RPM
Voltage 12v
Power 6W

as you can see with gleniu's build, he used st30 rads everywhere and had push/pull corsair fans. you can fit an xt45 in the top and front of that case with 1 set of fans.
if you look earlier in that thread, he gives dimensions of every part of that case in pictures. i think he even measured after he put in his motherboard.
in his pictures, he could have used a ut60 with 1 set of fans in the top.

The H220 would indeed be able to produce the needed flow. It won't have a problem with an added gpu and rad. I went into a lot of detail with this in the h220 forum.... It's a strong little pump.

I think I am going to have a look at the H220 in the forums. Swiftech and martin chime in on the forum. There also looks to be a lot of good member from the forums there.

Gabe from Swiftech frequently chimes in there. Part of their selling point is to be able to still provide flow for an added gpu, radiator, what not. I personally ran the h220 on my amd fx system a while back in a 540 case, added a swiftech 360 radiator and had 2 7970 gpu blocks in parallel.

Thanks to both of you for your input. I see the results and I am impressed by the results for such a little pump. I am just wondering if I would rather sell off the H220 down the line and invest in a proper water loop. Granted, the H220 would be fine in my system, but I am thinking it over. How much performance gain would I have over the H220 if I grabbed the kit I was talking about earlier, with a 240 radiator? 3-5 degrees Celsius, maybe? thinking.gif

Again, thanks to all of you for your input and recommendations.

I was currently looking at this one
http://shop.xs-pc.com/xsp/XSPC-RayStorm-D5-AX360-WaterCooling-Kit_39371.html
I also have a Swiftech H220 that I am currently using and one of the good things about it is its upgradability into a custom loop. My case is a Carbide 540 air, so I have clearance for both.
Is there anyone who uses that kit and if so, how does it perform and would you recommend it. Also, if you feel that there is a product/kit that my money could be better spent elsewhere, please recommend. I need tips from vets. wink.gif
Thanks

I'm running the AX360 D5 bay res kit kit along with an AX240 in my Corsair 540. I had to mount the fans outside, losing the filter, since there's only about 15mm clearance at the top between the two rads. And if I flip my 240 so the ports are toward the front, there's just a sliver of clearance between the two rads, but keep in mind that the AX240 is not only thick, it's a bit long (that's not what she said).



But I'm happy with the radiators, they do really well in push only, do well with low fan speeds, and they look damned nice, clean and understated, IMHO the best looking rads on the market right now. But I like understated and I'm not a fan of how fat 60mm rads look, but do like their performance, and the AX series performs on par with a lot of 60MM rads out there, and far better than most if not all 30mm units.

No complaints about the CPU block at all, it does its job better than the H100i it replaced, and that's with two overclocked/overvolted 780 Ti's in the loop as well.

And yeah, as a guy who claims to like understated, you gotta wonder why I added the red badges. It was to go with my build theme as the white lettering stood out a bit, but they badges are a bit tacky, I know. smile.gif
