post #18181 of 20786
Hi all,

Just installed my H220 X2 Prestige and I'm happy overall with the performance , now I'm hoping someone here can maybe tell me if there is any way to lower the fan speeds? I obviously used the PWM splitter which you connect to CPU-FAN1 and HWMonitor is telling me that FANIN0 is running at 1400rpm always. From a few reviews they all say "the cooler comes with a PWM hub so you can keep the fans in check" well I went into my BIOS and selected the silent profile and doesn't seem to do anything, on my Noctua cooler when I selected the quiet profile the RPM dropped from 1200 rpm to 800 rpm for example. So maybe I'm confused a bit, is anyone else fans always spinning at around 1400 rpm? if not how are you guys lowering it.


The second thing I'm not really happy about is actually my case, I have a Define R4 and this case is really not made for water cooling especially on top the H220 radiator is touching my motherboard , there is hardly any clearance on top and of course can't really move the radiator forward on top. So what cases are you guys using that you could recommend for this type of coolers like H100i, H220 + etc.

Thanks for any info/advice

Try connect the fan separately into motherboard, and pump pwm to another header (check if pump power consumption < 1amp)

Phanteks Enthoo luxe has heaps of radiator support especially if you're planning on expanding your loop. Depends on what you like the look of and size you want.

Sounds like your CPU fan header might not supplying PWM signal or you have something plugged in wrong in cooling system.
Can you manually setup van curves with your motherboard? Motherboard manual should have instructions for this.

As for caes i agree with above, Phanteks are quite nice and reasonably priced too.

But H320 X2models also have different fans as well as different fittings. I doubt he fitting make any difference, but the fans do.
H240 X2 fans 90cfm & 2.29 mmH₂O 2 x 90 = 180cfm
Prestige are 123cfm & 2.35 mmH₂O 2 x 123 = 246cfm

H320 X2 fans 55cfm and 2.29 mmH₂O 3 x 55 = 165cfm
Prestige are 77cfm and 2.24 mmH₂O 3 x 77 = 231cfm

What DB/sound and performance difference should I be expecting between H320 X2 Prestige and normal H240 X2? I can fit both, OCing 5820k to 4.5GHz.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The test chart you posted shows the performance difference.
Specifcations show a 4.6dB difference is fan noise, but that data is open air fan noise, not the combined noise of fan working on radiator. I have not had the privilege of testing these coolers so can only guess, but my guess is noise levels will be similar at same speed.

But that is misleading. Reason is the added cooling ability means the fans on Prestige should not have to spin as fast to maintain the the same CPU temperature and therefore should be quieter. I say should because without actually testing it is only an assumption and assumption can be wrong.

As already stated, it certainly appears that you are not getting a PWM signal to your components. It could be a bad PWM splitter, but is more likely a MB setting. If you tell us what MB you are using, someone can tell you how to fix it.

Two things wrong with this - First, this isn't some CLC, the pump gets power from SATA, not the MB, so it draws nothing. It only takes PWM signal from the MB. Second, if the MB is set for VR rather than PWM, doing this gives the illusion that the PWM splitter is bad. The fan will change speeds due to voltage changes, but that will not work when he hooks all back up correctly to use PWM.

also aren't some pwm devices prone to damage from being used on vr ports?
