You seem to be an angry person, most of your posts seem combative. Life is short, definitely not worth getting mad over anything computer related. Sorry if I upset you.

I had decided to edit those remarks out of the post but you responded before I had a chance.You have my apology. I have had a lot of adversity with my computer recently. My Corsair H100 leaked all over my $229 motherboard and destroyed it. Fortunately my cpu and video card were not destroyed as well. I am stuck on a lousy fan now because I don't have money to squander on temporary solutions until the H320 is released. I really do NOT relish all the maintenance and risks involved with custom loops. Spills are not uncommon and can be disastrous. leaks are not unknown either. I really wish Swiftech can get these qc/qa issues resolved quickly . I have been waiting on this forum since the end of February for the H320 even before the H220 release. So my patience is a little worn now. If it comes out soon and I have good experiences with it, I may someday expand it to my HD Radeon 7950 gpu but that is only a possibility.

Have a good day and a wonderful life . I have no enmity for you.

I want to buy a 480 or 360 rad to add to the H320. I don't want to spend money on a 240 rad.

H220 pump
Alpha Cool 280mm UT60 (Updated w/ Akasa Viper S flow Push/Pull in intake)
H220 Radiator with stock helix fans in intake
Thermal Paste:
I ran out of Swiftech Tim that came with the H220. Since I was hoping this would be my last modification of my watercooling set up I went ahead and bought a single use Indigo Xtreme (http://www.indigo-xtreme.com/)

Old temps on Idle for both CPU and GPU
38-41C
on Load
60-63

New temps on idle for CPU and GPU
34-36C
on load
58-61C

Ambient Temps 24C

Do these temps seem right to anyone? I've seen various watercooling setups from firends and online and they all outright destroy the temperatures I am receiving. My XFX 7970 gets about the same temps as the stock fan and my 3570k is on par with my old Hyper 212+. Prior to expanding the loop my stock H220 on idle was getting 24-29C, load has remained the same. I do not know what I'm doing wrong anymore, I've spent a lot of money on my computer and am close to scrapping it.

A few grievances I'd like to share about my experience with Swiftech products
1. Swiftech Komodo waterblock with an XFX 7970 Black Edition (reference model)
When the Komodo waterblock was installed my computer would not boot at all, I thought my 7970 was a dud. To confirm it, I took it to work and tested all the surface mounts, ram, and PCB myself and found nothing wrong with the card. To my surprise, my computer even booted up with no waterblock installed on the 7970. Upon further investigation I found that the top screw on the Komodo waterblock when tightened hard enough would cause a short causing my pc to not boot with the 7970 installed. My card is listed as a compatible card on the Swiftech website.

Your temps are very off to me. We just put a Diamond 7970 and I7 3770K in a HAF with just the H220 and even with the GPU @ 1125mhz it is much cooler than your current setup. I would question your fan setup and check to make sure the pump is even running. He idles in the mid to low 20s with 23C ambient and his high while in Unique Heaven was 46-48C. The radiator is mounted to the top of a HAF 932 with the fans set to intake. He does have (7) 120mm fans in the case, but his temps changed little with the (4) door fans turned off. We used Real Temp, GPU-Z, and Afterburner to monitor at different times.

I m curious what your VRM temperatures look like?

As far as the GPU block and XFX having issues, I d question XFX. They are known for doing small revisions and their track record has just made me steer away all together.

Thanks guys, those answers make a lot of sense for the H320.
Speaking of the 480 + 360 (I tend to write 220 and 320 since that is how Swiftech labels their rads) I wonder how much rad space the pump can handle efficiently. I have a Swiftech 220+320+140 without issues, but I wonder where the max is.

From my own experience, if you test everything for leaks prior to putting power to everything, there is very little chance that you'll develop a leak after that. I've been water cooling my personal system and have built several water cooled systems for others with only one incident of a leak. It turned to be entirely my fault for not tightening down a fitting properly. I foolishly neglected to leak test everything prior to powering everything on and despite the amount of fluid that ran down my motherboard, video card and into my power supply, nothing was damaged. I eventually had to replace the power supply because I would get random shut downs about once or twice a week. After replacing the power supply everything worked fine. There is very little risks of leaks or the resulting damage from leaks so long as you take the necessary precautions.

If his pump wasn't running he would see his load temps skyrocket into the 90s or above. I'm guessing it has something to do with the way his fans are configured and the air flow in his case. His ambient temperatures should allow this kit to function at pretty optimal levels, so long as everything is configured properly to take full advantage of it.

I had a feeling you were going to say that. Yes they are not pre-filled, but then again, they have the advantage of being available now. They are most likely better units, so something to consider since you are adamant about needing better temps to reach 5.0.

Just ran Uningine Valley Benchmark and VRM temps peaked at 52C and core temps actually went all the way to 65C frown.gif

in terms of fans I have (7). My 280mm radiator has (4) 140mm Akasa S flow and the Swiftech radiator has the 2 Helix fans it came with. All fans are in intake, Swiftech rad fans are in push.
