Looks like the p8z68 is a popular board. That's what I am using as well. I think I am going to try reseating the h220 pump using the corsair method where it is tightened down by thumb screws onto M-M screws. I've had nothing but problems getting it to sit right when using ST's screws with springs.

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

thumb.gif looks great! What case are you running? It looks like you got plenty of space up top to mount the reservoir pointing up.

If I could I would run it just like you as well, but the the ceiling is short on the 600t and the uppermost block of USB ports on the mobo gets in the way of the res lol. I scratched my radiator just test fitting it. redface.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.

Indeed it is, it's XSPC's clear/blue UV tubing and I'm using Logisys' UV cathodes, $9 at Amazon I think(?). I'm not knowledgeable in the tubing department but I know people have reported issues on varying brands so I just jumped at what looked ok to me.

Thank you sir, and it's the 650D. Also yah plenty of space with it pointed up but then again the noctuas are a good spacer, I was able to undo the top radiator and bring it out to bleed and top off without disturbing the other components because of the switch around I did in the configuration. Also ouch I feel you on that, I thought the 600T used the 650D's interior steel by quick glances Ive seen.

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.

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).

Mine is mounted like this:


The case is just really bad all around for trying to fit this thing. The holes at the top arent the proper spacing, there isn't enough clearance between the top of the case and the board, and also because its so short I can only orient the block 1 way or else I put stress on parts of the tubing.

Got my h220 today and what A pain to put in a 600t with a z77 sabertooth. the 8 pin is right in the way and I really had to wedge it in there.
Little curious about the cure time of this tim from swiftech. I fired it up and ran ibt to see right off the bat and max temp on any core running 4.5
was 75 so I am cool with that. I do love how silent this thing is thumb.gif

I would invest in a better case.
Take a look at the Arc Midi R2. Under $100 and no issue with H220 mounting correctly in push/pull
Plus need to work on cable management.

Yeah I am looking at a few right now but most of the ones I want are out of my price range. I am pretty much done with mid towers they are just really annoying to work in. My next case would probably be a big full tower like a HAF-X or Switch 810. The best option right now is the Fractal Define XL R2 which is on Newegg for like $90 shipped until tomorrow. If nothing else comes up before then I will probably just go for that since it is such a good price.

As far as cable management it is just messy right now because everything is temporary. I have no panels on the case including the front and top bezels, and the Swiftech radiator fans are just sitting loose on the top of the case because I couldn't screw them in anywhere.

My system usually looks like this if I know that I won't be touching anything for a while:

I would retry mounting it. There shouldnt be a problem with stressing out the fittings as long as you dont twist the tubes too much. the 600t i have actually has less room up top than you do.

From the picture you posted I cant see the left barb, which is the one that really matters. If it's even resting on the VRM heat sink it isnt a good mount.

This is how my kit was installed prior to modification. There's much less spacing than what you have pictured.



a better case would help you install it easier too.
