@colforbin

Thanks a bunch. I looked through your rig's specs and noticed a TZ77XE4 MoBo with an H220 and an R4. I looked through pictures on Newegg for your MoBo, and the VRM heatsinks seem as tall, or maybe almost, as the ones on the GD65 Gaming. How do you find the fit in your setup? Also, do you happen to have a picture of that particular area? (if no, no biggie).

Thanks again!

@Skullwipe

Thanks for the info. I had come across that picture along with this one:

But was still unsure, due to that board being X79 chipset, and the VRM heatsink beink not as far out on the board, and seemingly not as tall either.

Also, I noticed he put he H200 upside down. Which I keep reading on the Owner club thread is not recommended, and you'd have to tilt the case every now and then to help with the flow of the h220.

@Watagump

Thanks for the great info and picture. I noticed you have an NZXT case and you mentioned the EPS connector being the only issue, I'll have to look through the specs of the Phantom 630 and compare them to the R4's. Just want to make an informed decision, and not purchase the h220 and GD65 Gaming MoBo and not being able to fit them in the R4.

@gdubc

Thanks, and I did take mounting it in the front out of the equation due to hose lengths, and also the position of the reservoir. Just want to play it safe and mount it up top.


So, in general, I am just unsure about pulling the trigger on the parts I've mostly decided on (I only have the R4 at this point, with the CPU being purchased most likely today, as I have yet to decide if I feel comfortable spending a bit more and getting a 2011 chip or just stick with the 3770k). And again, the only issue I have is the fit, at this point I kind am considering going back to the early stages of my build plans: air cooling for the CPU. But at the same time I really want to get an h220, because I plan on upgrading my video card in a few months and I want to get an EVGA Hydro Copper card, as I noticed they are designed by Swiftech. For now I'll just keep researching dimension of the components I guess, and might just have to change the MoBo of choice if I go 1155 route.

Again, thanks for the great info, everybody.

Edit: so, as an addendum to this post, I guess the decision is now to either go with a 2011 chip (as the way I was going to purchase my 1055 chip is out, which narrows the choice) or wait a few more months to get a Haswell.

Besides the tubing, fluid, and the pump/cpu block??? Nope, I can't think of any differences. tongue.gif

The H220 kit is essentially that, an all-in-one liquid cooling kit for your processor. This kit though can be expanded to include other components into the loop. The Swiftech H220 Compact Drive II CPU Water Cooler is the same thing. They're calling it the Compact Drive II because we use to have an H220 Compact Drive that is now discontinued. Interestingly enough the H220 Compact Drive was my introduction into water cooling.

They are the same product. Some resellers like Frozen CPU are calling our new H220 kit the H220 Compact Drive II because we used to sell a kit called the H220 Compact Drive that is now discontinued.

So I am a noob to water cooling and I just ordered the h220 for my 3930k and I have it oc to 4.5ghz at 1.306v on load. Now that I found people adding gpus to the loop I am interested. What would I need to add 2 Gigabyte 7970 wind force cards to the loop? I found a dual 140mm radiator on amazon for 63$ from koolance are those any good. Oh I have an antec df-85 case. I plan to replace my tc14pe because it is to big and blocks first pcie slot. And I also have my dual 7970 oc to 1100mhz

With an oced 3930k and two oced cards you will want to add more rad space. To get good temps you would want another 240 of radiator, but I would recommend another 360. I am not familiar with the DF-85 so I don’t know if you can mod the front to fit a rad and fans.

In general to expand the loop you need additional coolant, 3/8-5/8 tubing, two 3/8-5/8 fittings per extra rad and gpu block, and two gpu blocks – either universal or full cover for your particular cards.

Not the best advice I can give, but acquiring a case that makes water cooling easy and fits extra rads will make your life a lot easier when expanding the H220.
