post #3031 of 20767
Anyone know if someone has managed to make a really clean looking expanded H220 loop? All the ones I see are missing something...I don't know what. I really don't want to drop $400 bucks on a ''real'' custom loop when I could save $150 and just add a second rad to the H220 and have the same temp.

So basically, anyone have a really clean looking H220 loop with two radiators and a GPU block to help convince me? biggrin.gif

its a good rad but like you said you gonna need some high speed fans with good static pressure.

Not sure what exactly you mean by clean, but this is what I could do with the H220, with gpu block, and two extra rads. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks, I hope you count some of your recreational support on the clock now and then.thumb.gif

This is what I gathered from testing on the 3930K and prime which is an extremely high heat load.

I was able to make the H220 fail running 0% PWM (800RPM fans), but when I bumped it up to 10% it just barely passed (~900RPM). Coretemp was registering about 180W worth of heat at that point.

swiftech-h220-th-23.png?w=614

But that's pretty extreme in running ultra low (0%) PWM settings where I feel normal use would be perfectly happy about running the 3930 where you allow speeds to ramp up. 1800 is pretty loud for my tastes, but 1300-1500 is ok for short periods.

Using that data I subjectively think 90W-100W per 120mm radiator section can give you pretty good results with medium speeds, but much more heat than that probably requires more radiator. I have been looking at upgrading my video card, and figured I probably need an extra radiator added to the H220 to make it work well. Of coarse there is also very little help in the area of determining wattage for regular use, but it's at least a start and coretemp is available for those that want a quick CPU wattage.

I see a lot of people here asking similar expansion questions and figured there has got to be some sort of rule of thumb guidance we can give them.thumb.gif

Maybe something like:

CPU(any) only - Kit fine

CPU(oc hexacore) + high end GPU = Kit +120 rad

CPU(oc quad core) +  med end GPU = Kit ok

CPU + GPU x2 = Kit + 2x120(220 or 240) rad
or should it be a 3x120??

........................?

Obviously there are some pretty large heat differences between chips out there, but something very ballpark like would be very helpful.thumb.gif

It seems that flushing the loop prolonged the life of my pump for around 2 weeks. While playing a game of Starcraft 2 today with some friends, the pump bit the dust a second time and my CPU temp spiked to 88C. I went through a large list of troubleshooting (including three different motherboards), and landed on flushing the pump again as a last ditch effort. Flushing it several times revealed no excess debris, but I was able to get the pump going again. After around 15 minutes of OCCT the pump died a third time. I am not going to bother with the flush and waste even more of my time. If I was billing my hourly rate for all the time spent troubleshooting this, I could buy an assortment of different watercooling units.

I ended up pulling everything apart, and swapping back to my Silver Arrow. The temps are very close to the performance of the H220 with none of the pump noise. I guess I will RMA the H220, and decide what to do with its replacement.
