You can have the H220 cool a cpu and single gpu, but your results can be anything from just fine to somewhat inadequate. It all depends on what you are cooling and the oc of each. If neither are oced or a low oc then you will most likely be ok. However if you have a non delidded 3770k with a high oc and a gpu known to run hot with a high oc, then you will need more rad space.

Sound is so subjective I don’t think anyone can answer that but you. I can hear any computer component no matter how “silent” people claim they are, and there is not just the decibel level but the quality of the sound as well. I would rather listen to a Metallica song at high decibels than a baby crying at low decibels if you know what I mean. With that said, I switched my stock H220 fans for NF-F12 fans that are turned down rather low, but the stock fans are better than any other stock fans I have come across with AIO coolers including Corsair and Antec.

You can definitely expand the 220 to the cpu + gpu. temps on mine are fine and i have an overclocked 2700k and overclocked 7950. you can check my temps a page or 2 back.

Has anyone figured out how to remove the glue from the pump that holds the little black decorative plate? I successfully removed it but the glue marks didn't come off with 99% alcohol, goo-gone, nothing worked. I'm guessing acetone would melt through the material...

Pretty sure this is superglue or krazy glue

Overall poor experience with Bacata.

Just wanted to let you guys know my experience with Bacata *sigh*. Wish Swiftech dealt with RMAs directly in EU instead of Bacata.

Sent you a PM. I'm sorry that you're having difficulties with them, but there is someone there that can help to speed things up. Let me know how it goes.

So today was the day that my pump finally bit it. Was playing some Battlefield, and started lagging hard. Noticed that the CPU was at 87C, and killed power. Tried running the pump stand alone, plugged into a PWM header, plugged into a fan controller, and plugged into the included splitter. Nada.

I drained out the fluids, and filtered the coolant using coffee filters and a funnel. I had a black metal piece that almost looked like half of a very skinny ring, and a lot of metal shavings. I flushed it out a few times with some distilled, and filled the system with distilled for a test run. This time around it fired up when plugged in, and the pump ran just fine. After letting this run for several minutes, I drained out the distilled and refilled with the filtered coolant. I topped off with distilled as needed as I tried to work the air bubbles out.

It seems to be running okay now, and I guess I am "satisfied". Still somewhat frustrated at losing my evening due to some poor quality control though. My pump is only slightly less noisy than before, which is somewhat of a nuisance since I would consider it quite loud.

I have a GTX 480, about the hottest running GPU ever devised by man. I'm doubtful that an additional 120mm or 140mm radiator would be enough to handle both it and my 3570k.

I just got mines replaced this weekend, since they are local. From what I found out-- if any-- it would be the early batch of H220 that might have this problem. It was recommended to do what you did to solve it--a flush and refill. I'm glad you figured it out, and it worked out.

I also grabbed a pair of their universal GPU blocks, and will be posting temps before and after installation for those who might be interested in an H220 dual GPUs setup soon.

Lets say, I want to cool something that has the same TDP as a 660 ti/670, would the stock radiator + 2 F12's and 2 SP120 Quiet editions, the CPU is a non overclocked 3770. I "might" get it to 4ghz, since its already hovering at 3,8-3,9ghz.
The rad will be mounted in the front of my Define R4.

I do eventually plan on adding another rad and another GPU to the mix down the road, not quite yet though.
Yeah, I think its been about 2 weeks since swiftech had the 7970 version of the block in stock as I needed the 7970 block as well due to this 7950 using the 7970 reference pcb.


You mean this one, for the 7970 series?





...That fits this card, that's a 7970 wearing a murdered 7950's skin?





Creamy "7950" insides....





Sorry, didn't mean to derail the thought train, but that's a VERY slick setup once it's all together!
I love mine!

Thanks - T

Just got an email from FrozenCPU, they are apparently expecting to get the H220 in stock (1-5 days) and they are now order able on the site.
