I would say the product is doing just fine.

Yes, but some of us have had two failing pumps in a row, which is a bit frustrating and the RMA process + installation/de-installation always takes some time. I haven't seen anyone overreacting about their problems yet. Swiftech already said that there were problems with their first batch, so after two pump failures I would like to see how their next batch works before going for it. Flip a coin and get lucky with the first batch, seems like you were the winner twice in a row. thumb.gif

Bumping this as now i have a question regarding the coolant I ordered http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14368/ex-liq-193/PrimoChill_Base_Intensified_-_High_Purity_Deionized_Water_32_oz_-_Clear_PC-Base32.html?id=ATXs32CJ&mv_pc=2160 . is that safe to use in a cooling loop on its own? if not, can you recommend a CLEAR or WHITE coolant that can be used on its own?

One guy almost did overreact.

I wasn't saying people haven't been having issues or they haven't been frustrating for those who have been having them. My point was this product was released and has been generally VERY successful, and met the owners requirements completely. I have my doubts having come from a technical support experience, and working as a software developer that those who are having multiple issues in a row aren't in fact doing something wrong, but I have been giving people the benefit of the doubt and have been helping them to troubleshoot their issue to get it solved.

The numbers don't lie, this has been a very successful new product launch by any metrics, and the QC was actually quite good for the initial launch. Your coin flip analogy belies the likelihood of the two "bad flips" in a row. With over 97% of the units not being returned which were sold, there is no way you have a 25% chance of receiving 2 bad units consecutively.

Yeah, I was originally going for an H220, but I knew I wanted more, so I just bombed $1200 USD on all my custom parts...
Straight truth though? If I didn't have all that to waste, I'd be mounting an H220 for sure!!! thumb.gif

Oh, I wish we could neg. rep people... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
AND drown the Corsair fanbois in their own drool too.
Listen here fella, this is a first-stage product, meaning all these fine people are the first adopters, and if the ones that are here are any indication, then I'd say we have what? ...A 500:1 failure rate? Even that? Anyone got numbers? Gabe? Bryan?
Even then, I'd take a failed pump once from Swiftech just to see a CSR or company president and founder answer my questions on an enthusiast's forum any day over Corsair's pitiful excuse for C.S.
These 2cents.gif may look biased, but only because I wear Swiftech products like war trophies, and they work!

Thanks - T

We don't have any data on these other coolants and therefore I can't give you any indication of how well they will work in your loop.

Just to chime in, after I RMA'ed my first unit due to the pump stopping (which turned out to be debris in the pump) my second unit has had zero issues. And to be honest, even though I modified the tubing length, I didn't do the standard bleeding process - I 'bled' the system by having the pump lower than the reservoir and using a funnel to fill the system - fill it, shake the system, tap on it, twist the pump around, etc, then fill it again until it wouldn't take any more fluid. Then I sealed it all up and installed it. What's more, my radiator/reservoir are mounted below the block. Despite all this, I've not even had any of the gurgling or bubbling noises from it at all - it's as silent as can be unless I'm benchmarking, then when the fans and pump spin up to maximum, they're slightly audible.

Right now, my entire system is apart, as I'm doing custom cables and sleeving for it. I figured while it was out, I'd go ahead and tidy up my radiator adapter plate - sanded it up so it's a little smoother and am spray painting it satin black to match the rest of the system. I think I'm also going to flip my pump around so I can hide the pump PWM lead better - but it looks like the cable may not be long enough, so I might have to solder in some extensions to it...

Pics of the update once it's done. But just to reiterate, even with my RMA'ed unit, I've been very happy with both the H220 and Swiftech's service.

You do not want to use that product by itself, it says so in the description. I don’t see the point of buying that particular product. Just regular distilled water, and a good additive is fine. Since you have the H220 I think the Swiftech blue coolant is the way to go.

If you really need clear you can call Frozen and ask what they recommend. Frozen recommended distilled water with Liquid Utopia to me:

I think my post above got lost in the shuffle about QC... anyone know the answer?

Due to the fact that we've moved our production facility, and just restarted production, it's going to be another couple of weeks or so before these are available in Europe again. I'll try to keep everyone here posted as to updates on this.
