When will the H220 make it's way into Westurn Europe?

I've talked with Gabe and Stephen about powering the pump directly off of the motherboard and neither of them see an issue with this. They've informed me that as long as the board is able to provide the necessary 6 Watts and about a half an amp (most boards are able to provide about twice that to their fan headers) then there shouldn't be any issues. Given that information I really don't see why the motherboard couldn't handle powering this pump.

The problem is, not all 4 pin motherboard headers are PWM capable, so plugging it in direct runs the risk of feeding the pump lower voltage rather than lower PWM.

Also if the power source is current limited (small PCB traces), it can put extra stress on capacitors. I have personally seen motor run capacitors fry myself on AC motors from using improper extension cords (current and voltage limiting). I smoked the run capacitor on my milling machine because I used an extension cord that was too small. I'm not an electrical guy, but if it matters on AC motors, why couldn't the same thing happen with DC motors. Even if a motherboard CAN handle the 6 watts, it may not be a good healthy power source for a pump.

IMO, bad practice to run pumps off a motherboard header. Call me overly cautious, but I wouldn't do it. As other have said, why do that when the kit comes with the splitter that ensure good solid regulated PSU power direct from the molex. Running 6W of power through hundreds of tiny motherboard traces is not a good idea..IMO People need to use the splitter.

ALSO regarding the inverted reservoir.

BOTH samples I tested had air in them. Despite the new filling system they both had air I could hear very clearly. If you run the reservoir upside down, that means air will be stuck in the system somewhere. If running a pump "Dry" is bad, how can running a pump "Partially Dry" do? I have also withnessed the pump running part full when an air pocket got stuck...very strong trickle noise means the pump cavity is part "dry". If that dryness extends to the bearing surfaces for long periods of time, you have now lost all lubrication and cooling.

IMHO, that reservoir need to be pointed up or a separate reservoir needs to be installed. A simple T-fitting bubble catch will do, but I wouldn't feel good at all without a reservoir or bubble catch working properly. Even if the loop is filled to the brim perfectly, I would think evaporation loss will eventually make that a problem. Tubing is porous and air will eventually enter the system and can cause accelerated oxidation and other problems.

Just wanted to pop in and say I have the H220 hooked up for a little over a week now, at first it was a loud ticking noise coming from the pump, the sound was similar to a fan blade coming into contact with a wire, the pump sorted itself out and is now quiet, after about 48 hrs or so constantly running. I am very satisfied with my purchase and have not had any issues with the unit itself or installing it in a Corsair C70 case.

i have a slight ticking noise only at startup and if i run at minimum 1200 rpm. 1400 rpm and its quiet. temperatures are still great. thumb.gif

(yes i'm using the splitter)

I had the trickling noise for about 4 hour of run time, once it stopped I was able to add about 1cc of distilled water. So there really wasn't much air in mine at all.

The other thing you want to do is adjust the Warning temperature on the sensor you're using to adjust your speeds, it defaults to 40c. If you don't adjust it, your fans and pump will jump to 100% as soon as it hits that temperature.

Being an H220 club member has its privileges.. Here is a world premiere of the Komodo HD 7990 being tested in an H220 based system. Just to be clear, the block is connected to an external MCR 220 drive cooler to facilitate its installation/removal for testing/validation purposes..

Notice the stainless steel trimming on the edge of the Komodo block, and Swiftech back-plate.

We can also see the new white tubing (in stock), and the new LokSeal QC-NS non spill fittings (in stock - release over the week-end) .

There are four different settings here that can be set for controlling how the speed of the pump will increase based on CPU temperature. You have to have CPU Q-Fan control enabled first in order to select these options and you need to set it to Manual under the CPU Fan Profile. Let me know if this helps solve your issue.

thank you much. see i did miss it the damn setting to manual thumb.gif

I finally got my system all ready to go today so here is my H220 push pull setup. I have it connected to the splitter provided and running smoothly.
