First, if you are going pastel (which Swiftech strongly recommends against) you will need to buy the concentrate to mix with distilled water (or you can simply buy it pre-mixed, but the cost and shipping is ridiculous). Adding pastel to the coolant that is in the unit when you buy it is not advisable.

FYI, pastels are not recommended by most people especially for beginners. Adding a pastel mix to a loop will require you to do more maintenance than normally required. I recommend you get some experience with water cooling before you venture into the pastel category.

To clarify, I was saying many people would recommend using distilled water and a silver coil (or pt nuke/other biocide) when filling a loop. Obviously, I don't NEED to do this with the H240x2, but I was trying to ask if I SHOULD replace the original coolant? (Is it beneficial maintenance or otherwise?) Also, was asking if I could use the original coolant with a pastel mix (to which you said no).

Yes it can be done. There are many users on here who have done so.

Got it. I am not going to dredge up the whole distilled + coil vs. a concentrate again, way too prickly of a subject here. It is for you to decide if you want to use distilled + coil (Monsoon Silver Bullet is a much more convenient route than a coil, btw), or have the added benefits of properly measured biocide, anti-scaling and anti-corrosion that would be included in a concentrate like Mayhems X1, EK or XSPC ECx. wink.gif

There is no need to replace the original coolant for 2-3 years according to Swiftech if you leave the loop sealed. If you open the loop, you will need to replace it ~yearly (pastels are more frequent). If you are adding a GPU and are thinking about going colored, that is a good time to do it.

There is lots of videos showing original H220/H240/H320 with other rads+GPU/CPU blocks. Even Swiftech own build did this.
Many here has done the same without issues.

Okay, might add another rad then
post #19716 of 20904
Does anyone know about how much coolant should fit into the H220?

I cleaned the fans and radiator this past weekend and I've done this multiple times without issue. This time, the cooling properties have disappeared. I decided to drain the coolant and refill. I noticed a large amount of small particles/sediment that was in the coolant. I'm not sure if that has caused issues to the pump or if it has created a clog somewhere in the system.

Outside of removing all tubing, is there a way to clean this and remove the sediment completely? This unit was sent to me after a pump failure in August of 2013. Swiftech's OCN forum member was quick to respond and helpful but I know he left some time ago. Any advice would be appreciated. The response from Swiftech was to prime the pump and refill which was a short response and so far hasn't worked. Thanks for reading this long, badly formatted post.

I think its about a cup, ~8ozs or 250ml.

Sediment doesn't sound good? I'd want to clean that out too. Maybe your working with a really old unit that came with tubing loaded with plasticizer that could foul the water?

I believe all of the H220 used that tubing. Also, the HydrX PM2 had a small amount of dye that often fell out of suspension leaving a brown sediment.

That has over 2m of head pressure. Read through this thread, you will find many users who have done that and more.
as usual he is correct in this matter

totally a personal choice, either will work, and provide well for your needs, you need to decide, generally speaking
distilled and biocide is cheaper -
premixed or concentrate addins are more expensive

read up and decide whats best for you !

you already did you can very easily measure proper biocide the rest is not needed in MOST average or common loops - you will know if you have an abnormal loop - and yet you inferred that it is hard and trying to do so. ( anti scaling is a new one, and NOT needed unless you use water with scale aka not distilled water .... OR run an open loop - not meaning custom water loop but a loop that is physically open to atmosphere - see cooling tower ) nor is anti corrosion needed. but recently people have decided to run it/advertise it , that is fine- but still a personal choice

Well, I finally got this thing running again. At this time, it is only running on distilled water so I am going to pick up some of Swiftech's coolant by the end of the weekend. Looks like I would only need to add about half of the concentrate or pick up the premixed coolant and just flush the loop again.

I appreciate those who replied and weighed in. After many days and lots of tinkering, the pump is running back at normal speeds with a negligible difference in performance. I was mostly worried because it seems my old Seasonic 750 was dying and it shorted/fried part of the Sata connector on the Swiftech splitter. New power supply, new splitter, and lots of trial & error got me back up and running.

Overall, I am content with Swiftech's responses through email but I definitely miss the responses I received in the past, with other reps. I am not going to let this experience completely sour me on the company but I will keep it in mind should another issue arise.
