Looks like my pump may be on the way out. Randomly during gaming sessions it will drop down to 0 rpm (turn off) and then it will try to boot back up. I have noticed it when playing Starcraft 2 by having Hardware Monitor open. When it happens, i have to alt tab out of sc2 so temps don't get out of control and then watch the rpm for the pump change from around 2300 rpm to 0 then back to 2100 a couple times until it keeps running. I think the pump is still getting power because the stock swiftech fans on the radiator (all connected to the included pwm splitter) still spin at normal speed when the pump is turning off randomly.

Also, I have been using this for 2 weeks now, and it only happens when I play much more demanding games (with high AA and SS) that push my cpu and gpu temps up (both on the same h220 loop). My motherboard is then set to increase the rpm of the pump (as cpu temperatures approach 65 degrees C) , it gets to around 2300rpm and then the pump will shut off and try to start up a couple times.

So the question is, is my pump getting clogged by debris and failing, or is it somehow failing due to having to dynamically switch to a higher rpm based on temperature?

FYI, If you pop out the blue wire from the pump 4 pin fan header (use a sharp knife to depress the connector tab and slide it out), it will disconnect the PWM signal and should run at full speed all the time. I did this for testing, but it's one way you could test to see if you have a PWM issue or if it's the pump.

Well i just bypassed the included pwm splitter by plugging the pump directly into the motherboard and the two fans into chasis fan spots and I am still having the same problem. It always seems to trigger when the motherboard starts telling the pump to increase its rpm. I think I will now try setting my pwm setting to manual in the motherboard bios and see if it still acts up. If that doesn't work, I will try the method you suggested.

does your motherboard have a PWM/Voltage mode? If it does, check your BIOS settings to make sure the board isnt regulating that PWM header via Voltage. My gigabyte board had 2 modes for the CPU header, voltage and PWM.

I just checked, I do not have an option to change it from voltage to pwn. I believe the only option is pwm, Well, I just set the pump and radiator fans to full on (was really trying to avoid this much noise), so they wont change due to temperature. I will test it right now.

Also, I had the Hyper evo 212+ with both corsair fans hooked up to pwm before installing this water loop and i never had this problem. It would always trigger to higher fan rpm when my temperature setting was reached without any issue.



Well, the pump did not shut off at all this time, when i set it at "full on" in the motherboard bios. I just wish there was another way to make this work without having the pump so loud.

That Looks terrible! I am wondering if maybe the coolant swiftech is using is not compatible with the rubber on those hoses. I see that type of residue on vehicles who use the wrong type of coolant because people don't know which to put in their cars. Some coolant does not work with certain rubbers and it creates that type of residue. Worst case scenario it starts to deteriorate the hoses and junk clogs up the radiator and ultimately pump.

So, i tried connecting the pump to the chassis fan1 spot (allows pwm control) and the two stock swiftech fans to the cpu fan1 and cpu fan2 spots on my motherboard. Weirdly enough, it is working this way. Now all of them will increase in rpm when the set temperature is reached and the pump is no longer shutting off. One last question, would there be any problem or issue with the way I have it connected now (especially the pump connected up to a chassis fan1) ?

I finally took some pictures of my installed H220 loop with an added GTX Ttian. My case is a Phantom 410, so I had to do some very minor modding to fit the radiator rightside up on the top of the case. All it took was a dremel, measuring the radiator and cutting about a half inch into both sides. The result is not elegant in any way but it is functional.

Hope mine doesnt brake down, I was running mine for about a few weeks before I added my 7970, and changed the tubing to the primochill, im going to flush it once I add my second 7970. Its going to be a big task as I have 2 radiators to empty it out..
