You're one of the first people that I've heard of that actually liked their mounting system better than ours. I'm glad it worked for you and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions or concerns with your replacement.

Finally part of the club! Love the performance of this thing.

Perhaps a silly question, and I intend to use SpeedFan when I get mine installed, but suppose I connect the splitter to the CPU fan header (PWM) and connect the pump and two stock helix fans to the splitter. How is everything controlled, if at all? The signal from speedfan changes both the pump and fans at the same rate? Also I have 2 corsair sp120's coming in which are pwm as well. Would it be better to control them separately? The helix fans will perform around a certain RPM and the corsair at a different RPM. So I just wonder if the PWM splitter being controlled by speedfan/board would set the fans to the same or different rpm.

The PWM signal would regulate the fans to a % of their variable range. If the max RPM is greater than the helix, the fans would spin faster, if its less than the helix they would spin slower. If you are going to use both fan types on the same radiator, pair the helix in push / pull and the SP120s in push / pull so you do not damage the fans.

I posted a thread about this earlier and was directed here. I picked up a Swiftech H220 this morning, came home, and installed it in my rig. This is my first liquid cooler, but I'm guessing something is not quite right. While it is keeping the temperatures down on my CPU, I can hear the coolant flowing constantly. It sounds like someone left the sink on in the other room. I've been told I may have some air bubbles or an inadequate amount of coolant. Does that sound about right and, if so, do you think I should just return it for a different one, given that I have thirty days to bring it back to the store?

You can do that if you so wish, or you can just remove the radiator and top it off with a little distilled water. After that the noise will go away in a day or two.

What case is it in? how/where is it installed (top, front, etc)? Is the reservoir cap pointing up, down, or sideways?

I had a similar feeling in my post here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1367654/swiftech-h220-owners-club/950#post_19612269

The backplate setup for this mounting kit is not as easy to work with as Corsairs. I didn't think of using the standoffs and screws from the corsair kit. That will make my life a LOT easier the next time I have to pull this apart. Thanks for the tip on that!

It's in a Fractal Design Define R4. I first had it with the reservoir cap facing downward and then I tried upward. Both has the same issue.
