Yes there is. Not so much in terms of bacteria or organism growth because the tubing is black, but in terms of maintaining the seals, o-rings, and the pump there is a disadvantage. Our coolant has properties that help to maintain these parts and thus extend the life of the product.

Thanks for the update! Cant wait!thumb.gif

Bryan (Bram),
If your motherboard allows, you can place the H220 pump in four different orientations by rotating it in 90 degree increments. Does it make any difference at all which way the pump is oriented, or will we get the exact same performance no matter what?

This is a good question. I have wondered if the pump orientation would have anything to do with some of the pump problems.

I don't believe it does; I mounted my AD2 upside down in my last build and never had a problem.

The way the pump is oriented will have no impact at all on performance or how it operates.

I'm quote intrigued with this all in one. I'm in the blueprints of putting my system into water cooling and I was wondering how does the H220 waterblock fair against the more popular custom loop waterblocks out there?

Well, I posted a few pages back of the problems I have been encountering with this pump. During gaming sessions, I would get an rpm at 0 error from Asus suit fan controller. I have an rma coming my way already due to awesome customer service (thanks Bram!!), but I decided to do some testing of my own.

Basically, I kept hw monitor up ran a windowed gpu stress test to be able to monitor temps. Every time the cpu reached around 61C-65C, the pump would stop which would make temps skyrocket. Shortly after, the pump would kick back on and temps would go down, followed by another turn off. Once again, this can be better seen in my previous post.

Anyways, I was able to replicate this a couple of times until about ten min ago when the pump stopped and never started again. Plugging it into different fan headers, along with plugging it into the splitter provided nothing new. Sucks to boot into the desktop at 89C and opening up a browser brings it up to 95C..

Pump is officially dead :-(

Now I have to wait till the replacement comes in on Friday abd only hope that this one doesn't have the same issue.... can anyone with similar problems verify?

Anyways.. /rant :-(

Thinking about using this in a CPU (3570K @4.4, 1.328V) and GPU (670 @ 1241, 6502) loop. Do you guys think this would be sufficient to keep my temps low? My goal is to keep my 670 below 70 degrees so I don't have any throttling. Noise is also a huge concern of mine. I don't have the option to add another radiator, as I'm putting this in an SG08. Should I just go full custom like this guy?

You will have to do custom work to get it to fit. The H220 is different than a standard rad in terms of design and size. So lots of pre-planning, mock-up design, before you can do anything.
Have to run the H220 in push/pull in a case that small to help with heat.
