Its not really a big deal, its better than putting the fans on top of my old HAF 922.

Is yours an Arc Midi R2? Here's an image of the h220 in a Midi R2 along with a motherboard featuring a heat sink on the top VRM's.

Ahh, ok, damn. Sorry to hear about that, but glad it worked out!

Yep, bought it since it was recommended by a user here. Perhaps the Mpower heat spreaders are larger, I also moved one of the 140mm fans and placed it on the roof where the Optical Drives would go, that also impedes the hoses by just a bit. Nothing a little modding can't solve.

It's beginning to look like I may have to put my top fans outside the case if I hope to fit a push/pull setup...

Yes sadly frown.gif As awesome as the Arc Midi is it is only a Mid Tower case.

True... maybe it will inspire me to craft some sort of crazy transparent shroud.

People suggested I post here regarding some issues I was having with my new H220.

I made a thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1386158/swiftech-h220-noise-and-mediocre-performance for the details but basically in summary the thermals seem pretty bad compared to what I have seen other getting, and I had some concerns about some noises that seem strange as well as coolant levels.

I would double check your mounting. Do you have the pump oriented so the tubes are coming out the sides? I found on my P8Z68 that the VRM heatsinks got in the way of the barbs. I had to mount my pump so the inlet was at the top. This seems to be the only orientation where the VRM did not touch the barbs. You will get bad temps if your heatsinks are anything like the P8Z68. Trust me, I know. I had a h100i and the h220 was doing 3 degrees worse with the bad mount. Now it's doing 3 degrees better.

Check it:

as far as the coolant noise, top it off with some distilled so there's no more air. Do this when you remove the pump to reseat it. You'll need to probably shake and rotate the kit with the pump running to work all the air into the reservoir. Bryan from Swiftech has said adding some distilled to the factory coolant to top it off will not harm the system (in stock form).

Ok here's some snaps of the new loop, credit to ez12a for his loop design, used same in mine but flipped the top 240mm the other way around (first time custom water cooler paranoid over tube and fitting stress biggrin.gif )

I think it turned out pretty well for first time at it, still need to clean up some of the front cabling and manage my back wiring with the swifech's pwm controller, might go for a fan controller for the noctuas instead of software.

Temp wise I haven't pushed it yet, but in Bioshock (my most demanding game I'm playing around in) the gpu has hit 38c with all fans and the pump on lowest settings. Anyways so far so good, thanks Swiftech for an awesome product. thumb.gif

Edit: The UV blue is much more rich and a darker hue in person, PS and LR didn't like my RAW files today so I just uploaded jpegs.

May I ask if thats UV tubing, if it is, which tubing is it? and which cathode did you use to get the effect. A slightly future build of mines is on the works at a later date, though starting off by getting some UV gelid fans.
