The picture above is not that clear but that was a pic of my system when I still had two GPU's. The 120mm rad there is the one from the Arctic Cooling Hybrid Cooler GPU AIO. Do you think I would have size restrictions also when I buy a new rad? I wouldn't think so.

Yeah looks like yours mounts far enough below the Swiftech to go about as thick as you want. I would probably go with a 45mm thick one if I had the room.

Ok, I'll see what I can find out. Thanks!

Has anyone used an h220x on a Fractal Design Core 500?

I know the there us a 100mm limit of the Core 500 but I reckon using an SFX PSU will circumvent that limitation.

Any photos you guys can share? Thanks!

@rfarmer

Would it also make sense to, in addition to installing a 120mm rad in the rear fan slot, install another 140mm in the bottom fan slot?

Also, is the peformance of 1x360mm rad more or less similar to that of a combination of 1x240mm in series with 1x120mm?

Yeah the performance of a 240+120mm should be very similar to a 360mm rad.

As far as the additional radiator goes I think I would try the 120mm first and see if you have acceptable temps. More components will be a bigger pain to connect and you also have a greater chance of leaking.

^ in corsair 350D


^ in inwin 805

short review of swiftech h220x and x2
so i bought the swiftech h220x a couple years ago after a couple months the water caused the lexan reservoir to crack after a rma to ncix i couldnt get another one.

a year later i got my current h220x2. the cooler is brilliant it even survived the mild winter without cracking. but about a year after purchase the pump started making sounds. as far as i am aware of there is no replacement for this component but cooling wise it far surpasses the h100i in cooling potential, even after replacing the stock fans with noctua industrial 2000rpm. on big gripe about swiftech aio's they are hard to find after initial release. even big box stores makes it hard to find.

on a side note, anyone know if the hydrx-pm is a good option for coolant? it is the only one i can find locally.

I'm using hydrx pm, it works great. I bought the unmixed stuff, and accidentally used too much water, but it's bright as hell and the cooling efficiency is unmatched

Change of plans smile.gif I decided to upgrade my case to a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX so there's that. I have more room to work with. Do you still suggest I start to add only a 120mm rad when I have the room to add a bigger one? And where do you think I should mount the H220X, in the top or front?

Evolv is a beautiful case but there are some airflow restrictions you have to take into account. First I would mount the H220-X in the top, if in the front it is either backwards or upside down which Swiftech doesn't recommend. The top has a slide out radiator bracket which makes it easier to fill the reservoir, the problem with the top is the restricted airflow. The Swiftech aren't too bad because they don't use really high rpm fans. What happens is that the air is not able to exit through the top so it pushes back down around the radiator and gets fed back into the radiator heated which increases temps. What Evolv owners are doing is blocking off the open areas around the radiator, most use either cardboard or tape. Like I said the Swiftech don't do too bad but the EK Predator with the higher speed fans gets really bad performance if you don't block off the open areas.

If you haven't ordered yet you might look at the Pro M, not as good looking of a case but the cooling is better and interior layout is almost identical.

Edit: You can also go with a 140mm radiator in the back with the Phanteks.
