Swiftech H20-120: The Results are in!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
The fun starts tomorrow!

Desktop pic is proc at full load (two instance of F@H). Proc is running 2.6 at stock volts. This is on air (zalman CNPS 9500). Proc can be run at 2.8, but it gets a little warm for me during the day (53+). So it has been at 2.6 24/7.

Preliminery results: Well, the watercooling has been installed with minimal problems (only had one leak) and its on to overclocking. As I wrote above, 2.8 was achievable, but higher temps then I would like (50c+) were attained on air (cnps 9500). This was at a vcore of 1.435. I could not stop myself from hooking up the system only 3 hours after installation to see how it did.

So far I have upped the vcore to 1.45 and load temps are steady at only 40c. So far so good! Pics to come soon.

Nice job, now are you going to clean up those wires a little bit more or is that as good as they're going to get?

Ok, so here is a current pic of the desktop/information. With two instance of F@H running (100% each) the CPU temp fluctuates at 37/38. Here is my mini review of the kit.

The product purchased can be found here.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108075

Upon opening the package the first thing i noticed was that everything was very securely packed. The RAD, RES were all packed twice in bubblewrap, while the waterblock was packed in its own individual box, also very secure. The second thing that I noticed was that all applicable mounting hardware was packed with its respective item. This was very helpfull, in that you can just take the item your mounting to your computer, and you have everything you need. Upon opening the RAD I noticed a slight blemish on the lower left hand corner. It appears to me as though this RAD was dropped during manufacturing, there is a dent in it and the paint is flaking off, not a big deal to me as I just care about the performance, and you cant see that part of the rad without looking for it, but something to consider none-the-less. The instructions I received appeared to be copied off their website. Just 27 pages stabled together. While I uderstand this keeps prices down (or does it...) it would be nice to recieve readable instructions (half of the pages were not decipherable because of very light printing) maybe next time they should use kinkos. Installation for the most part was a breeze, though there is one thing the irked me. The first thing the instructions tell you to do is install the radbox. The last thing the instructions tell you to do is fill the res/lines, which it says requires taking OFF the radbox. Ughh. Also, first time i tightened the hose clamps I only used my hands resulting in a leak during testing. Went back and used some pliars and they are good! The temp decrease has been wonderful. My OPTY 165@2.6 stock voltages was idling around 30 and hitting 46-49 during the hottest parts of the day. Now, my opty@2.8 1.435 volts set at bios (cpu-z is wrong ) is idling at 25 and topping out at 37. For the money I paid these are definatly the results I was expecting! Now to hit 3.0!

I give this kit a 8/10

-.5 points for cosmetic damage upon recieving
-1.5 for lack of good instructions (and a really bad printing job!)

Yeah, im planning out completley cleaning the case in afew weeks once winter hits (and when i mean completely i mean taking off all the front filters, so on). At that time I will do some more cable management. Until then though, its serviceable!

Ambient Temps are around 23c. Ambient depends on whether or not my bedroom door is open, as my room doesnt get any good AC (its the farthest room from the ac unit). With the door open ambient is 23c, with it closed, ambient usually climes to 25-26c.
