The others are not so good. H220 is a watercooling kit. Ones you build. Not like the AIO you see now, that are sealed.
Problem with Corsair cases, is they design them to use there products only. Been that way for a long time now.

With the res down, you will need to top it off. its like any watercooling system now.
The 3-year maintenance free is as stated if you do not open it.

Which rep told you this?

So I've ordered two of the h220's, one for someone else, one for myself. Here's a picture of the current set-up I have with an h220 installed (3770k, NZXT Phantom case): http://i.imgur.com/SHm4zDM.jpg

The temps and everything while benching were fine, but the noise that comes from the cooler is...soothing? I'm not sure if it's supposed to sound like a fountain or not. Here's a recording of the noise it makes -

I don't really mind having to top it off, but I wish I knew I'd have had to before I'd installed everything, because I'm pretty sure I'll have to remove the entire unit now in order to safely add more to the reservoir. I checked the h220 that I have ordered for myself and shook it around a bit and I can definitely hear plenty of liquid sloshing around inside as well.

Is this normal? Will it go away? Should I top it off with distilled water? If these were all vacuum filled from the factory etc...how are so many going out that are less than full?

Some have reported that it goes awa. I only hear it when it ramps. I just installed mine yesterday. thumb.gif

Mine went away after a day or two of use.

Hmm that is strange. I put the screws through the fan, and then through washers, and then through the panel of my case into the radiator and it still bent the fins a little bit. The washer and case probably gave it an extra 3-4mm of space compared to just mounting them on the radiator itself.

All it means is that you may have to top it off with distilled once or twice over the course of three years. This unit is designed to be expanded and user serviceable, it sounds like you're in the market for a CLC and not an AIO.

Yep, not interested in the maintenance, if I had to maintain it, I'd spend the extra and learn how to make my own loop. One of the best things about my air cooler is I haven't had to touch it in 4 years, other than to dust it and it works great.

Sounds like you made up your mind before commenting, to each their own, I'll take the H220's performance over the size of higher end air coolers or weaker powered AIOs but that's me.

Wow. I should have waited... I was impatient and ordered the H100i because I could never find the H220 in stock anywhere. I have recently decided to expand (didn't think I was going to at 1st) to cooling my GPU's and wish I would have waited. Bummer.

Oh well, I suppose I could always put the H100i in my wife's rig and still order the H220 for mine. I plan to upgrade to Haswell soon anyway, so that'll give me an excuse. It's settled then. biggrin.gif
I feel better already...
