I'm in!




Rather than shortening the tubing, I flipped the pump, is that bad or doesn't matter?

Interesting to hear from Bryan about the cause for most of the pump failures.

When I received my replacement unit, I shortened up the tubing and as part of the process, drained the system. Before I put the coolant back in, I ran it through a simple chef's strainer and came away with some debris as well. However, I didn't fully flush the system. I guess I can either take the system out and do a full flush again or hope that I got the majority of debris out when I drained it... Hmmm, how lazy do I want to be?

That shouldn't matter.

In your expansion video on the website you mention having the pump at the lowest point when trying to bleed it. I will have your 320 rad with res at the top of the case, and the stock H220 rad with res at the bottom of the case when installed.

When I am trying to bleed the loop outside the case, with the two rads, gpu, and pump, should I still have the pump below all the other parts when I try to get the air out? Also it is better or worse to leave the fill port open when letting the pump run for while in the bleeding process?

Any tips you can give us water newbs as to flushing, filling, and bleeding are always appreciated.

If your upper radiator has a reservoir then I would just keep that one above the pump and leave its fill port open while bleeding. It helps to leave this fill port open while bleeding so that it will allow the trapped air to escape.

As Gabe mentioned previously, we're finding that about 70% of the defective units appear to be failing due to debris getting trapped in the pump and thus preventing it from operating.

Hmm, what about the other 30%?
post #1128 of 20217
Any of you guys with an H220 who have ever used water cooling tubing before: is there any tubing out there that is as flexible as the H220 stock tubing?

I posted before my problems with PrimoChill and fittings, but I found it is also a lot stiffer and harder to work with than the stock H220 black tubing. Just wondering if any of you with experience can tell me if there is other more flexible tubing like the H220 out there.

Also does more flexible mean any less flow, as in it is tradeoff some kind, easier to bend and work with but slightly less performance?

Where have all the H220's gone?
Not a single one in stock in the UK at all.
