Well well well, time to count me with the unlucky ones too...
I was just going back home from work, powered on my PC just to be welcomed by the dreaded "CPU fan error" Post message...

So, I checked everything I can think of : wires in my case (plug unplug), plugging H220 pump alone on CPU fan header, without success...
Logging on Windows, I checked CPU temps to see them rocketting to +60°c withins seconds ...

I can't fell any vibrations putting my hand on the pump...

I own the H220 for just a week today, it was working like a charm till now, time to get in contact with my reseller in France for RMA I think...

WOW!!!! I can't help but think it's just a matter of time before mine goes for a crap. I'm on my lappy a lot more than my desktop, so it might take a little longer.redface.gif

Let me know if you need any assistance with the RMA process and I'm sorry to hear about the issue that you're having with this kit. To satisfy my curiosity though, did you happen to update your BIOS recently? We've had a few customers now saying that their pump died shortly after or during a BIOS update.

Thanks for your assistance, but no, my asus p8z77V-LK was already updated to latest Bios before I get the H220.
I didn't make any mods to it apart putting on the radiator 2 fans for push pull config. You can check pictures of my install here http://www.overclock.net/t/1367654/swiftech-h220-owners-club/960_20#post_19615641

I would have thought that adding another radiator to the H220 would lower your cpu temps. But this review shows it didn’t, and adding a rad and gpu upped the cpu temps a couple:

It is because of the pump, or something else? Have any of you guys added a rad and a gpu? What happened to your cpu stress testing temps?

I would guess that, with the unit just cooling the cpu, with the double-thick rad and push/pull fans, the water was already pretty close to ambient and thus couldn't be cooled much more by the addition of the H220 radiator. Probably would have made more of a difference if he had tested the combination with the gpu in the loop.

Thus I think his conclusion that the H220 pump wasn't sufficient for a custom-type loop is flawed.

Most likely the temperature increase is due to the fact that the second radiator couldn't quite handle the added heat load from the GPU.

I just reread the review and obviously missed something before. He found that temperatures were good with the cpu + gpu + both radiators, but too high with just the H200 radiator. I don't think he tested the cpu + gpu with JUST the bigger radiator. He's also got the RX 240 with push/pull fans while the H220 rad has just the stock push fans, so that's not exactly a fair comparison, either.

Thanks for the reply.
Do you think that is the case with the gpu at idle? If you stress test your cpu with just the H220, then stress test it with a gpu and rad added to the loop, but with the gpu at idle, what should the cpu temps do?

I guess I am trying to figure out how much heat another 220 or 320 rad with quiet fans can take away, vs. how much heat a gpu not doing much and sitting at idle adds.

How much noise should this pump make at lower rpms? Mine seems to make a loud buzzing / grinding sound that I can hear from 3 feet away with a closed case at idle temps.
