Yep, agree that flushing is not necessary. I hear no noises, no bubbles or weird things coming from it. I will test on a complete different system and keep you posted. However, I have to say that the unit down here is performing flawless with the pump at maximum speed for a while now (just monitoring but the system is idle)... It is just when I stress the system (10 minutes prime95 would trigger it) that the pump goes to zero RPM and temps spike. I would agree at this point that the most likely cause is the cpufan header in my MB. I just want you to understand that the test you guys are doing (if is something in the two units of the H220) will not trigger the problem I am observing. Don't get me wrong Bryan, I can only praise so far the customer service provided by Swiftech and you in particular and also praise the h220 design. It is by far the best cooler I ever had with a combination of thermals and noise unsurpassed. But the fact remains that under the conditions I have been mentioning to you the pump does failure. At this point I am wishing it is caused by something bad in the cpu fanheader because that would be easy to fix (just replace the MB).

All the best wishes

Gabriel

Just wanted to follow up on this post. Bram PMed me shortly after, and happy to say that the issue is now solved. These guys really go the extra mile to help you out, and that's worth everything in my book. Not only did he offer to review the unit himself if I decided to send it in, he walked me through troubleshooting it and eventually solving the problem I had. Took a little bit of work but was worth it and I can now dissemble/reassemble the pump, filter/refill the coolant, and have no more problems getting rid of ANY air bubbles (this is extremely easy to do actually). And about half a day ago I knew nothing when it came to this stuff, and any of that would have freaked me out, so thumb.gif.

Already anxious to order some more stuff from Swiftech and looking at the options I have to expanding my loop. I don't think there's any other company that offers what they do and have the support to go along with it. Very pleased.

One of the number one reasons for these clubs is for troubleshooting, so you'll hear a lot more people talking about their problems than praise. No different than any other clubs on this board for 100% new products. Corsair H series AIOs had just as many complaints in their club thread about noisy pumps with the early units and even for several months. There are hundreds, thousands of people with these brand new units (initial shipment was 3000 units IIRC) that aren't having problems. You are hearing the voices of a small fraction of H220 owners.

The Force is strong with this one. (Sorry I just had to biggrin.gif )

I want to know what skywalkr did differently, because when I did everything that was advised, (took pump apart, cleaned, flushed, refilled rad, etc) I still have the same exact noise issue after running it again. redface.gif

Full speed is too loud for me, I run it at 30%, and I lose very little in cooling ability.
