Don't worry about micro bubbles. It's not an issue, mine took 3 weeks+ before everything went away. No difference in temps before and after, not even a degree lol.

Looks like some small bubbles clinging to the acrylic window, lighting just makes it more visible. Is the unit new, or been moved or had it's coolant changed recently?

My question is does the same thing apply to the H220X? Just wait it out , and all will be well or should I attempt to try to bleed them off, I have the AIO front mounted which makes the drain plug at the bottom, i'm afraid if I turn it a bit the fluid will drain out. I have tried turning the entire system upside and bleed it, but once I turn it back around they reappear magically. I'm guessing I should just wait it out? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I've found these units are nearly impossible to 100% fully bleed once you open them, there will always be some air due to the gaps in the reservoir and radiator mounting. I've spent dozens of hours trying to bleed these (even using a small reservoir attached to the fillport), it's annoying as once you turn the pump off the air goes back into the radiator due to gravity on the other side of the U-flow channels. I think the only way to fully bleed would be using the bleed screw which is only on certain units. It shouldn't be an issue once everything settles down though, just keep topping it off as much as possible and tilt it slightly. I think the best mounting position is with fillport on top, tbh.

This is what I figured I cannot fully top it off at this direction and cannot mount up top in this case. I have spent about 6 hours trying to fill it all the way to top and then once I flip it to put in case always a gap in the resivour.

you can fill it up fully but it takes patience...I've spent an hour before getting those last few small amounts in and that's after doing it probably 15 times

I received yesterday my new H220-X (after I RMA'd the previous one due to pump rattling issues) from Coolerkit (thank you guys for your quick support thumb.gif). Just to inform EU -possible- buyers, they have the new revision of the unit with the new rubber tubing / no screw on tank window / fixed power supply on pump. Let's hope this time the pump wont fail me.

That's nice to hear Swiftech is great but people in Europe long time couldn't find them.

After all the bad stuff you said about Swiftech H2x0-X in the local forums, you shouldnt visit this thread Vlado.

Did the previous one you had differ in all the ways you mention above?

I got my from CoolerKit as well. I'm very impressed with their customer service though it's a shame they put up the prices after I'd got mine.

My first H220-X was from HighFlow in Holland but I sent it back immediately and unused because it had the shiny plastic tubing. HighFlow tried to rip me off by giving me a partial refund in contravention of E.U. trading laws. A quick call to PayPal and they refunded the full amount.

Considering this forum is Canada/USA based we support free speech so he can come here all he wants, even if his views differ. smile.gif
