Was the difficulty due to the reservoir and the fittings on our kit, or would a standard 2x120mm fan radiator have difficulties as well because of the size of your power supply? I'm just curious in case others have issues with the same case.

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.

Not quite sure what the issue is with the Switch 810 up top. I just finished retesting in the top location and all the screw holes line up fine up top. The bottom mount location I could only fit two screws, but the top worked for all 8. I actually only used 6, but 8 would have worked fine. See the photos below:

FWIW, the reservoir should always be pointed "UP" on these. I understand if the unit is completely filled perfectly that you can get away with mounting it inverted, but reservoir up should be the standard practice. As fluid does evaporate or if you have any little pockets of air still in the system, you need the reservoir pointed up to trap the air properly.

The bottom of my SM8 is configured with 4x120mm mounts spaced just right for rads. With 4 fans mounted there is still enough room for a lower mounted FlexBay fan mount. The PSU takes up 1.5 fan mounts plus a bit of room for cables, so you lose two fan mounts but no more than that. When test fitting the H220 both ways, the swivel fittings or the tank blocks the lowest FlexBay fan mount from fitting. However while you just can't have your cake and eat it too, the SM8 has loads of other options. It will fit down below with a AX1200i PSU, just not with a FlexBay item there - or you could move the PSU up top. It will fit in the FlexBays if you have room for a 240mm FlexBay rad mount besides your other planned bay equipment and planned top/bottom rad clearance. And it will fit up top too. It's just all about balance and making the most of the three sides of the case that you can configure.

Thanks for the info and for the picture. Hopefully others will find this information useful as well. + Rep.

Hey just got my H220 biggrin.gif. Either I missed something, but do the system come pre-configured in push or pull? Thanks. Just wondering because adding some corsair SP120 to make it a push pull config.

The stock config of the H220 is push for the fans.
Are you talking about adding two SP120 to the two Swiftech fans? If so I am not sure it is a good idea to run two different sets of fans since they have different RPMs and static pressure.

Thanks. probably will get all 4 fans to be the same then. But for now only bought 2. I read the stronger static fans needs to be pushing..

Some of the H220 some are getting was coming in pull and other sin push. So check the fan mounting.
Higher static pressure is not needed for the H220 due to the low FPI. Even if you run the fans at same speed, both are very different in terms of specs.
Best to run only one set, not both as noise will be increased due to the difference in airflow.

I didnt like the SP120. Loud noise at any speed for the price it has, cue to motor used. Another is the fit on rads, seems there is a little air leakage due to the frame design on rads, unless you use gaskets to help.

Ill try with the different setup and see if noise or performance will be any different. Thanks for the suggestions.
