I reseated it multiple times and tried multiple configurations of the pump and rad and was unable to get anywhere near as good temps as I was getting with the h60.

My H100i was beast, well until the Water Extreme 2.0 and H220 came out. It is really outclassed by other coolers now (H110 is decent to). My replacement H220 makes a water trickling noise but as long as it works I really don't care all that much.

Well thats good then lol

I think I'll like the more clean look the combo will give off rather than a 655 pump/5.25" res would have

Is it a pleasant noise, like a water fountain? (srs question)

http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00001850

Have you already bought the case? I have fitted the H220 to a Thermaltake Chaser Mk1 with four fans (push pull, two either side of rad) with great ease. The case is $150 AUD.
Hope this helps.

I went with the Alphacool UT60 for a couple of reasons. It is all copper and cools well with low RPM fans. I could not find a review for the 240 radiators so I went off the reviews for the 360 radiators that I found here. I know it is probably not ideal but that is what I did. From my finding there all the top performers were all very close so I figured the 240 radiators would most likely have very similar results.

I'm pretty pissed atm, pump worked for about 30 minutes and then right before I was about install windows, I got greeted with the "CPU fan error" message. I unplugged and plugged in again, nothing. Tapped the pump head and turned my case on its head, nothing. The pump is directly plugged in to the cpu motherboard header.

Now I'm guessing I have to pay a **** ton of money to ship it back for an RMA since I live in EU.
Already spent 250 dollars on this AiO and now this.... Swiftech I am disappointed...

You shouldn't plug the pump directly into the header. The 6w it can pull usually more than a fan header can handle. Even if you're only hooking the pump to PWM, use the splitter because it feeds the solid 12v through the molex plug and only pulls the PWM signal from the fan header. That way it can't overload the header.

Try it again but how I mentioned and report back.

I have the alphacool ST30 and it's great. great price for a quality rad.

Tip for those who are using speedfan: you can set alarms for certain fan RPMs (in this case lets go with the pump). I've set mine to beep and shutdown the computer if the rpms are <= 10 for the pump (shutdown.exe is a built in application in Windows. the actual command in cmd is "shutdown /s [ /t ]"). For those worried about leaving your computer on while you're away.

I would check your motherboard manual cause I believe most motherboard headers now days will handle upto 1amp.

Amps = Watts / Volts

Amps = 6 / 12

0.5 amps

If the pump draw is indeed 6 watts. I did not look it up.

Like Phelan said. So Using the PWM splitter may not be a bad idea. Since we do not know what the pumps actual current draw is at start up. I have always used a fan controlling device of some sort myself, so you will have a dedicated 12v source for all your cooling needs.

To be fair. The How To: installation videos linked on the Swiftech website does show the person from Martin's Liquid Labs using the PWM splitter in one video and in the other video by HiTechLegion.com using the Asus Sabertooth Z77 motherboard header for pump installation. So using either the PWM splitter or motherboard header should be acceptable.
