If you can't wait, just get some Hydrx-PM as coolant, and any 3/8x5/8 tubing will do the job.

Will only the black tubing be arriving next week, or can we also expect the white?

only black - do not expect white tubing for another few weeks.

There is a trick... use a GPU universal block wink.gif Sure, you will require some heatsinks for the other parts of the card, but they are kinda cheap and you will silence the noisiest part of your computer. The H220 features a 3 year warranty and the MTBF of the pump is terrific (60.000 hours!).

Still, in this industry nothing warrants such a decade compatibility... and, for what is worth, it appears that Haswell (LGA1150) will use the same mounting holes as LGA1156 and LGA1155.

It is. Stock vs stock the H220 won wink.gif

It isn't that simple, mate. The H220 is more or less 1ºC ahead of the RS240 Raystorm kit... which probably means that it would be 1-2ºC below the same kit with a bigger radiator. The catch? One uses a Raystorm and the other, a Rasa cpu block.



http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/09/26/i7-2600k-cpu-xspc-raystorm/6/

Simply put: the performance difference between the Rasa and Raystorm doesn't invalidate the review posted before. Let's try not to jump too quickly to wrong conclusions, fellows. For the same reason I believe that the H100i should match the H220, simply because it has more powerful fans, but nothing else. Performance/sound the Swiftech will win hands down.

Keep in mind that if the 2700 rpm Corsair fans are any good, even on an RS240 rad, the Delta T water/air will be almost halved, which right there is a good 3-6ºC advantatge on that aspect. At the same time, though, the H100i is optimized for high-speed fans (it has an insane FPI), which means that at 1500rpm it will have a crappy performance compared to lower-fpi products such as the H220.

Its not something as easy to compare wink.gif

Whats wrong with adding a new cpu block into the loop XD

It would actually be really cool if Swiftech, down the road, made a "backplate" that was just a solid metal backplate that had a sticky pad that would allow you to place the h220 pump/block combo anywhere in your case, so you could get a new block and than easily reuse the pump. Just an interesting thought to explore! thumb.gif

Hire this guy.. nice idea thumb.gif You could kinda do that yourself and I think you just solved the only inherent problem with the longevity of this setup... What do you do when a better block comes along... problem solved

Still thinking about how I'm going to cram this bad boy into my Fractal R4. I think it may fit okay as-is, or I may need to drill a couple extra holes. I've also been thinking about mounting the fans on top of the case and was wondering if anyone knows of a cage/shroud that would mount to 140mm fan holes. If not I may end up having one made, and possibly more if others are interested.

This is a preliminary design, but I would put in a slot to insert a filter just below the fan holes:

Certainly possible ... you'd just have to find someplace to mount the original pump/block. You'd have that extra restriction, but not a big issue considering the powa of the pump.

How would you want to do this in the first place? Do you realise that you are adding restriction for nothing? rolleyes.gif

What would make sense would be to sell a casing for the pump in the case you don't need to use the block anymore... but using the block+pump combo not as a block is kinda stupid.
