Yeah I just checked and it is really close to the heatsink but they aren't touching. So in that picture is that the way you have it mounted when you said you got 3 degrees better? Or is that how you had it before when it was 3 degrees worse?

it was better the way i have it pictured in both of my pics. Mounting it with the tubes coming out the sides with the swiftech logo at the bottom had bad temps. I took off the h220 and sure enough there was a solid layer of TIM that wasnt spread by the mounting pressure on the left side of the CPU heat spreader.

Yeah I will probably just wait until I get a new case then. I don't have a backplate cutout so for me to remount it I would need to take everything back out of the case again. If I am getting a new case anyway I may as well save all that work to do when I transfer everything.

Finally added my GPU to my loop. Thanks to Swiftech and most of you as I didn't know jack squat about WC three months ago. thumb.gif

I just finished reading the thread that you made about noise and mediocre performance. To me it would seem that there are a few things that are causing this. I would say that with your ambient temperature and the way the kit is mounted, these are combining to cause your issue. If there is some air still left in the radiator you can use distilled water to top it off. We did our best to vacuum fill these kits before they were shipped, but it's possible that some may not have been fully filled. It's always best to have the fans pushing air through the radiator then to have them pulling air through it. Please let me know if you have any other questions or issues. You can reach me at my work email at bryan@swiftech.com or just send me a PM. I'm on here a lot just as the other members of this club have stated.

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:
Not all mid towers are like that. Reason I mention the Arc Midi R2. There is plenty of room to install 2x 240 rads 60mm thick in push/pull. I own the case, that is why I recommend it highly.
I only buy cases that support proper watercooling.
The HAF X is ok, but not worth the price anymore. Switch 810 is very good, with plenty of room. I got tired of full towers and the 810 with all that plastic gets to you after awhile.

Very nice. You can remove the slider under the ODD bay. You can add another fan for P/P for the front.

Cool thanks for the help. I managed to record the sound with my phone and I am uploading the clip to Youtube so people can get a better idea of what I am talking about. I don't really have the option to mount it in push because of my case, but from the results in the LinusTechTips updated video review he was saying that he got the same temperatures in push and in pull configurations.

As far as the ambient temperatures go they are a little high but there isn't really much I can do about that other than moving to a different state lol. However, in the past I have had idle temperatures as low as 29C which doesn't really explain why the H220 is idling almost 10C hotter than my old Hyper 212+ (super budget air cooler).
post #2080 of 20767
idle temps arent really indicative on how well the system is working, especially when the fans/pump speeds are throttled. Load is where it's at.

at idle and everything slowed my h220 doesnt idle much lower than my old h50.

plus, i think a remount is still in order to get best performance. Until then..
