I'm using a 500r case and it's the only way I can mount it unfortunately.

What are my options to try getting rid of the noise? Thanks for any info.

Dismount the radiator and place it above the pump with the reservoir facing upwards, let it run for awhile and see if the noise lessens or disappears. If that doesn't help, open the fill port and add some distilled water to top it off, run the unit again and see if there's any change.

Alright, temporarily I hooked up the fans and h220 cpu cooler using the provided PWM controller until I get my fan situation straightened out. Thanks for the help.

BTW The wires on the pump are in the correct order but I notice the green and blue in the pwm coming from the splitter to the cpu fan header are switched (just like the pictures in Martin lab review of the unit). I don't think that is a problem since the PWM is active and I can regulate the pump/fans rpms.

That sounds like the problem to me, but wait until Gabe Stphen or Bryan can verify.

It might be if they are inverted on the route. They look just like this picture:

http://martinsliquidlab.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/swiftech-h220-12.jpg?w=614&h=529

and notice that the green wire on the far side (which should be the PWM signal). The question is if at the other end of the cable (the one going in the splitter) the two wires are reversed (blue and green) or not (I can not verify that right now since I am at work). Otherwise is just a problem of the color scheme not being followed consistently.

Thank you all for helping out.

As for fan controllers, it seems like the Sunbeam Rheosmart fans advertise themselves as PWM controllers, but reading the descriptions it looks like they simply use the PWM signal to do voltage regulation. It seems like Speedfan and Swiftechs PWM hub are going to be the most reliable combination, not to mention the cheapest.

Yeah, I have that Sunbeam that you're talking about, and while a good budget fan controller, even seating a 4-pin PWM fan on it and letting it control them is a sure way to premature death for the fans.
Cute little deal, but I had to get something with real software control, real PWM and voltage control, and also, just smaller. That Sunbeam's got a lot of junk in the trunk!

Thanks - T

OK. I got my H220 but didn't install it yet. I was reading about the PVM splitter and fans. I emailed MSI (my motherboard manufacturer) and this is what I got back regarding my CPU fan header
Quote:
The boards cpu fan header is 4pin, the 4th pin allows for fan control, we recommend installing a fan which has this connection.
So I am assuming it doesn't support PVM fans. What do I need to install the H220? Thanks

I think you mean PWM. What model motherboard do you have? Check your manual, it should have a section on fan headers.

It looks like the Z77 boards only have PWM control on the CPU fan header. The image below is from the Mpower board.

Yes, meant PWM. I have a P67 board.

Alright, according to the manual for the P67A series boards, only the CPU header has PWM control. Check your BIOS and see if you can force it to operate on PWM.

Edit: People are saying to use the MSI Control Center software to set fan speeds.

Isn't this the reason the swiftech h220 comes with a PWM controller?
