I hear the Helix fans are pretty quiet anyway, I'll still use them somewhere else in my case, I'm sure.

In case any one has an NZXT Switch 810, the fit of the H220 is tricky with the fill port up. For now I have 2 Couger Vortex (only fans I had laying around) and the 2 stock Swiftech fans installed. The Vortex fans are holding the entire assembly as none of the standard mounting holes lined up due to the res/fill port part. I will most likely modify (ie, cutting a bit of metal out) the top of the case to mount everything properly in the near future.

Having to deal with the plastic retaining clips when switching to LGA 2011 was a pain, literally. Overall the entire set up is much quiter than the H100 with standard Corsair fans I had. In the H100's defense the four fans that were on it were abysmal and sounded like a jet taking off. I'll be adding three GPU blocks eventually and another res, radiator etc.

As an added note my tubes were clean, no fins or pins were bent, and all of the hardware was present. thumb.gif

I'm the one that fit the H220 into the top of the Switch 810 for the compatibility pictures. The only issue that I had is that I had to place the radiator toward the front of the case to make room for the reservoir. You can clearly see that in the picture on our website. The holes lined up perfectly with it in this position. Did you try to put it in the same position, or did yo just try to install it toward the back of the case?

I think he means with the fill port up. Your install picture is with the fill port facing down. I originally installed it in my 810 with the fillport down and it fit fine, except I was getting tons of "bubble/running water noise". Last night I turned it over and it was silent within a couple of minutes. I actually mounted the rad and push/pull fans all inside the case. I bought longer screws to and inserted them on the top of the case where the fans would normally go. This then went into the fan which screwed into the rad. I then used the long screws that came with the h220 to screw the bottom fans into the rad. Even with all the fans and rad inside the case I still had room for it with an ASUS Maximus Formula V. Is it okay to mount they rad like this or am I doing something wrong by have all the fans in the case.

Edit: with this set up I was able to use a screw in every single hole in the rad. I purchased 6mm 1 1/4" screws (I might have to double check the screw sze but I think that is correct.

yup, noise wise i believe they're comparable to GTs. I currently have one of the included helix PWM fans as my exhaust fan on the back side of the case.

No, the pic on Swiftech's site shows the fill port facing up.

Yeah you are correct. I could have swore I remembered it being face down but I guess I was wrong. My questions is how are the fans mounted. Mine are mounted from inside the case, whereas they were mounted outside the case with the fill port down.

My Swiftech H220 came in the mail.





I haven't hooked it up yet as I need a very thin Phillips Driver to set up my fans right. The short bolts only secure the fan from the lower side of the fan instead of a long bolt going through both sides. Not the coolest design note I've ever come across as my whole PC is basically down because of this. I could install it upside down but I still want to switch out the fans so I will hold off for now. Perhaps an argument for a real set of tools rather than a con for the H220. It does look cleaner hiding the bolt like that.

Overall it feels like a nice kit with the pump waterblock being the best thing about it. The pump is expandable, solid, and full of quality parts. That's the real game changer for this sort of kit. I wish it had a red LED Swiftech logo like the Apogee Drive II and swivel compression fittings. Swiftech still has the best mounting systems I've seen.

The quality swivel clamp fittings it does have are the H220's next best feature but can get you in trouble. After swiveling around the H220 for test fitting in my SM8 case the H220 became very twisted. After playing with it like a Rubix Cube for ten minutes I figured it out. This happens if one of the rad swivel fittings is swiveled around and the other is not. The tubing can't swivel with the unit if swiveled on one side. Just swivel the rad side fittings in unison and it should work out ok. The pump side fittings can't swivel around like the rad side fittings, the mount will block the fitting from doing complete circles.

My H220's rad fins are not the prettiest or straightest fins I've ever seen. My H100i was aesthetically better in this respect, never mind the Swiss Watch build quality of the SR-1 rads. But the H220's rad is not bad by any means and I'm sure it performs better than the H100i too. Defiantly not a reason to avoid the H220, but down the line with money to burn I'd rather switch out the rad for an SR-1 or UT60.

From what I've read the Helix PWM fans are much better on noise than the stock H100i fans. However they don't have the ultimate build quality or performance of GT AP-15s. So I'm moving them off the H220 in favor of push pull GTs... As soon as I get my hands on a thinner Phillips Driver!!

Yeah, it would have been nice if they included a cheapo philips head screwdriver with a narrow enough shaft to fit through the screw holes. I had to turn my house upside down but eventually found a little screwdriver that would do the job.

Why do you have four PWM splitters?

Yes fill port up, with the fill port down it fit perfect. The fill port is now up facing the front of the case, facing back will require cutting. Not a big deal, fans are holding it fine until I get around to modding.
