His picture in the middle shows that the pump is plugged in correctly and that the wires are in the correct positions.
All I see in that middle picture is the splitter end of the cable, not the end that's at the pump. My concern is that the cable between the pump and splitter may be twisted. Is it even possible to see the wires at the pump?

Check out the video I posted in my YouTube channel on configuring speedfan. I'm on my cell otherwise I would post a link. Channel name in my SIG.

Not the best picture but yes, all good with the wire coming from the pump too. Blue outside and green by its side just like the other end going to the splitter...

So I picked up an H220 a week ago and the pump noise was really loud. I tried tilting the case on every angle and changing the pump speed to try and get rid of any bubbles and the noise did eventually go away and I was really happy with how it was performing both in terms of cooling and acoustic performance. However, this morning when I woke up and turned my PC on I could hear an annoying ticking sound even when the pump was at 20%.. I turned it up to 100% and this is a video of what I found (linked below). Honestly this is really disappointing for such a "premium" product. I really hope one of you have had a similar problem and can tell me what to do to fix it? In the video I tried to film different areas of my case to prove that it really is the H220 pump.

Damn, oh well. I wish you luck tracking down the issue!

Ok Guys, another update. Is not the PSU either since I change it to another one and the same problem happen. At this point I can only think of a problem in the MB cpu fanheader or that lightning can strike two times in the same place (or I am a lightning rod of sorts tongue.gif)... Bryan, I known you have not being able to reproduce the error I found so far but the conditions are not the same. In my case it always happen while stressing the system (prime95 or gaming) and running the pump at full speed would not trigger it....

One last shot would be to take the h220 and put it on a complete different system, something I will try soon. Another shot would be to drain the h220, flush it and refill it.

Cheers

Gabriel

It seems like there are way too many people having issues with this cooler and many are experiencing the same ticking/grinding that I'm noticing from the pump. While I'm beyond satisfied with its cooling performance, I'm thinking about returning it at this point because I'd much rather have the money in my pocket and a slightly warmer CPU.

what size are the short fan screws on the H220?

Gabriel, your kit was flushed and filled prior to being shipped to you, so you shouldn't need to do it again. The other issue is that Stephen has informed me that the stress that the CPU is under won't have an affect on the way the pump performs. He should know because he's the one that engineered it. The only way this could affect the performance of the pump is if there is bad power being fed to it during times when the system is being stressed. I would have to say that if it isn't the PSU at this point then it is likely an issue with the motherboard. Please let me know what you find though when you test it on a different system. The unit that you sent back to us has thus far performed flawlessly.

The screws used on this radiator are M3.5 screws. You can alternatively use 6-32 though as well.
