This is a link to my semi-build thread. smile.gif This thread definitely inspired me!

http://www.overclock.net/t/1392968/corsair-600t-and-h220-expansion-watercooling-loop#post_20009230

Added a 200mm Phobya rad to the loop and an EK GPU block to the GTX 670. Excellent cooling of the whole unit even with the stock fans. Will be adding some Noctua NF-F12s and then NF-P12 for exhaust for case.

It's not close to its final form, but in the middle of the process. I have been happy with my unit. The pump is solid and quiet. I'm sorry to hear of those that have had issues with the unit, although the CS that I have received from Swiftech has been outstanding!

Cheers,
John

By the way Martin, you are the man!!! Awesome reviews, thorough and well thought-out. Your extremely thorough (and lengthy) review of the H220 was a huge reason why I decided to buy this kit to begin my water-cooling adventure.

Thanks for all the hard work and dedication to the hobby!

Cheers,
John

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.

I'm really sorry to hear about this Fleat. Please send me a PM and I'll start working on your RMA request when I get in tomorrow.

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

GTX 480 = Kit + 120mm tongue.gif

Ah, the old positive vs negative pressure debate. It's a bit old, but this video is how I like to respond to that question. I think with a radiator positive pressure is more beneficial than with an air cooler.



Edit: Science!

All energy systems naturally move toward a state of equilibrium, therefore, the heated air molecules will move toward the cooler air and disperse their energy until equilibrium is reached.

This is further aided by the air pressure imparted by the fans.

Hey guys,

Doing a build for someone, just wondering if a the H220 will fit in the CM Storm Trooper?
Also just questioning if it will cool a 3570k + 7970 with mild overclocks. I.E 4.4GHz and say 1100MHz ish on the 7970, depends how "good" it is though.

Also wondering what size tubing the H220 uses at stock AND if I pull out the "factory liquid" could I re-use it? I honestly don't see why not thumb.gif

Swiftechs compatibility page shows it top mounted, and if the hoses are long enough you should be able to do a bottom mount as well.

Cheers,
It's just that the Storm Trooper only has the space for 1x 200mm fan in the top, it doesn't say that it can fit 2x 120mm's. I guess it can,

With the liquid, could I use car coolant? Seeing as it will never be seen.. Just get a 5L bottle of the stuff that goes for the longest amount of kilometers tongue.gif

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

Hi RemagCP,
I made my loop into the Zalman Z11 Plus (mid case, not watercooling prepared) and it looked like this:


I know, with more time on it i would made it looking better but at the time I made it I was injury in my knee but I like it anyway thumb.gif
