Just got my replacement Apogee XL from Swiftech... it was very dirty.

...
and that was like the 10th qtip.

Clean your hardware people.

That looks like normal oxidation to me. That's what happens with bare copper is exposed to the air, espeically if air is not extremely dry. Most people call that tarnish.



I will gladly accept a little tarnish instead of it being plated which lowers heat transfer, .. not to mention the plating flaking off problems.

So I just picked up a H240X2 and I've been left wondering why on earth they send these things with the CPU block preattached to the backplate?

I spent about 4 hours trying to unscrew the block from the backplate but one screw was just completely jammed no matter what I did and I only had one pair of pliers on hand so there was nothing I could do about it, same thing with the motherboard standoffs being attached to the backplate, it all created a lot of unneccesary hassle that simply wouldn't have existed if it had come with the parts separate as they should be.

Even if the screw is tight, there is never a need for pliers, let alone two pairs. The backplate itself will hold the nut in place while you unscrew the fastener, you simply need to put the nut back in place if the pressure fit pops off. You are not the first person I have seen say something similar, but the "hassle" you mention is non-existent if you simply look at the parts for a moment rather than reach straight for a hammer pair of pliers.

Swiftech should probably add something to the manual about this.

I agree with you about the nut and I did my best to put it back in place but it still turned with the screw so I tried holding the nut with a pair of pliers while I turned the screw and no matter what I tried it just wouldn't move, in this case that particular screw was over tightened like crazy, even with two pairs of pliers I could barely turn it! The other 3 screws came out with no pliers or anything.

And how are you supposed to remove the stand offs without pliers? Honestly I don't get why they send it preassembled like this, it just seems like it causes issues for no reason, it's a real shame because the mounting hardware seems very easy to install so it's given me a bad initial impression unnecessarily.

Need a help here guys, which rigid fittings would be a good fit on the H240-X2? Looking at doing that on my Sponsored DOOM build.

So after installing this I've noticed that the back of the reservior is leaking, I'm not having a good experience with this product at all.

I emailed the place of purchase about it who told me to contact swiftech even though the swiftech site says if you're outside of America you need to contact the reseller directly for an RMA... do we have a swiftech rep on this forum I can contact about this because quite frankly I'm pretty annoyed after shelling out so much money just to be messed around like this.

The Swiftech rep drops by here once in a blue moon. You are far better off emailing directly to help@Swiftech.com or using the Swiftech forums (http://forums.swiftech.com/). Obviously the email is the preferred route since that is exactly what Swiftech says to do in these cases.

Kind of odd that it would have a leak there. Can you post a pic? Someone here may have had a similar issue, or the leak may not be exactly what you are thinking, and there may be an easy fix.

Any of you had a problem with leaking with H240-X2? I've came across some reports of leaked units... This guy was received a leaked unit TWICE!

I had a look at the swiftech forums and no one seems to be replying there so I emailed that Swiftech email you posted, I might just call them tomorrow though to speed things up.

The thing is when I first opened the product there were a few drops of water on it but I didn't think anything of it. Whenever I touch the back of the reservoir with a tissue the tissue gets wet so it's definitely a leak. I had a corsair H50 running for 7 years with no issues which cost a third of what this cost so to have this leaking out of the box is seriously disappointing.

It's also annoying because I had to import this from the Netherlands so to send it back there and receive a replacement is going to take ages, hopefully I can get the RMA approved by Swiftech tomorrow, I'll let you all know how things go.

Yes, mine was leaking out of the box without any use which is mind blowing when these products are supposedly leak tested before being shipped out.
