I feel better already...

When one wants to spend, if you have money, it is always an excuse.

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.
Thing is that you dont have to do anything to the H220 if you do not open it.
If you mount it correctly with the fill port up, you shouldnt need to fill it. Thats what the 3 year maintenance free warranty does.

The H220 is a custom kit, just per-built for you.

I love a good one man conversation, especially when it leads to such a logical conclusion. Don't forget to buy yourself a shiny new case to house your new rig!

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 -

http://www.twitch.tv/destiny/b/396774699?t=4m20s

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?
Hey this is noremac13 from your stream. I posted on here a few days ago about the issues I was having with mine and it should be applicable to you as well. When I would tilt my radiator around there was also a ton of empty space which isn't normal. The trickle sound is an indicator of air in the system. Part of the problem is mounting the radiator with the fill port facing downward, which is how I have mine mounted and I am getting the same kind of sound. The way that the radiator is designed with the reservoir attached means that the optimal way to mount it is with the fill port facing up. This causes an air trap near the fill port so that any air bubbles passing through the reservoir get trapped instead of constantly circulating through the loop. From what I have been told you can mount it fill port down, but to do so you have to make sure the fluid is absolutly topped off where there is no empty space in the system and also you are going to have to spend a lot more time bleeding the system of air. Overall it is just more effective to mount it with the fill port facing up. Ideally the only noise the system should be making is from the pump motor and the fans. The liquid inside should be silent.

Has anyone put the H220 up front in an R4 like thishttp://www.sotechdesign.com.au/?attachment_id=588 ? I'm thinking of mounting it this way, would there be a problem with air getting into the pump? I want to go stock till I'm confident enough to add on. Thanks

probably the worst way to mount it, but it's probably doable if you top the thing off and check it every few months. Honestly I would probably modify it and put a T in the intake line as Martin suggested previously to make your own air catch. or an in line reservoir.

just be sure to check it every one in awhile since you probably dont want the pump being the highest point in the loop, as air will tend to stay there after evaporation. of course, if you have something higher than the pump, thats a different story.

Bryan you guys should design a pump top for the H220 so we can use other blocks further down the upgrade path =D
