Thanks! And I really appreciated your help with my pump troubles.

I do like my original plan better though (the first pic), it looks cleaner and the tube runs were smarter. I think I will go back to it eventually. After talking to a bunch of people I realized that there probably wasn't enough water pressure into the pump inlet to prime properly. I'll have to go buy more tubing, a quick disconnect, and a big bucket I can use as a fill reservoir.

For now though I'm letting my arms take a break, and I'm going to enjoy a little gaming.

Had my h220 for about 3 weeks, the pump died in the middle of the night...bummed. RMA time. Just thought I'd share.

Sent you a PM. I'm sorry to hear about your pump dying and we'll do what we can to make it right.

That's the problem we are finding in over 70% of the returns we've received to date. We've addressed the issue for the upcoming and all future productions batches, adding filters everywhere, flushing, extra precautions preparing coolant, etc etc...What happens is that when a debris gets stuck in the impeller cavity (in the bearing or in between magnet and impeller cavity walls), the impeller can't spin freely, and we have an electronic protection that tells the motor to shut down when impeller doesn't run freely. So you get a seemingly dead pump.. When we clean it up, it goes back to work. We don't think that this is a wide spread issue, and this is covered by our warranty anyways. But if you are expanding the loop, I'd say go ahead and flush it for 20 minutes with distilled, it's a safe procedure anyways.

Very sorry to hear that. I wonder what the numbers are for returned units out of all units sold to date?
Swiftech will take care of you, but it still sucks.
Now I'm wondering if I should take mine apart and flush it out.

Some new numbers for you. 4.8ghz @ max V-core of 1.424 @ max temp. of 78C running IBT on very high. Ambient of 20C.thumb.gif
By the way. Enabling CPU spread spectrum made a world of difference.

Thanks a lot for the info.
Never done this before. Watched Bryan's video, but could you guys give me some tips/instructions on how best to “flush it for 20 minutes”?

To flush it all you would need to do is follow our instructions for filling and priming the kit. You'll just use distilled water instead of the HydrX PM2 coolant. Let it run for about 20 minutes and then dump it out. Make sure you dump it into a container so that you can check it for debris. Once you think that you've gotten everything out of it then just fill with coolant again and re-install it. If you find some debris then re-fill the unit with more distilled water and start the 20 minute process again. Do this until you no longer see anything in your fluid when you drain it.

so i just splurged on the extra gear I mentioned earlier: EK 670 copper block, kill coil, xspc white tubing, swiftech comp fittings, and a the alphacool st30 120mm radiator.

Did a "test fit" with my old h50 to see if i had enough room..looks like I do. Plan on doing a 120mm radiator in push exhaust config. I'll let you guys know how it goes. *crosses fingers*

i will probably flush the h220 rad out while i have everything apart too.

this would be my first "custom" loop ever. Should be interesting lol
