It's me again smile.gif

After having a long discussion with our retailer, I have done RMA with them twice, both times I have received a new kit from them. The first two had the debris issue and the pumps failed (first after 5 days or so, the second lasted 20 minutes). So I waited for a new batch of these to arrive in Finland.

The Swiftech coolant was not available in Finland and since this kit was AIO, it should have been working out of the box. I have no experience from WC, but lots of experience with PCs. I didn't get any coolant from Bryan either. Our retailer also suggested that I send the kit to them, it's also much easier to send to a local shop rather than UK or somewhere else.

So recently I received this new kit and I installed into my PC yesterday, it worked fine with major 'gurgling' sounds though from the beginning.

But today, I was going to sell my GTX 680 to a forum member and found this.



Then I investigated and seems that the radiator is leaking from where the hose clamp whatever that is is connected to the radiator. Damage already done. I am yet to investigate the MB and RAMs etc. Could be an issue from the retailer but they really sent a new kit to me, the backplate etc was preinstalled and fans were zip-tied like every time before.





Oh the last image is inverted but I'm too tired to rotate it.

Oh my I have to say that I am FORCED to get rid of this kit from my computer, call it bad luck or whatever but I don't think I simply have done anything wrong to cause these issues? I have tried my best to install everything as carefully as possible. I don't think I should need to do a leak test on AIO kit which is pre-filled and pre-tested.

I did my best not to write about my feelings right now. Fortunately I didn't put my GTX 780 SLI into this build. thumb.gif

The card it leaked onto is a GTX 680 DCII OC.

It'd be nice to see what could be done to this, if anything. If it's an user issue, then blame me.

Ahh my bad I thought the pump was built into the rad?

If you add another rad to the h220 do you need another pump or can you buy one thats built into the rad?

Rad short for radiator, res short for reservoir. Getting a little confused on some of these posts.

The stock H220 comes with a pump that is built into the cold plate that goes onto the chip. The radiator that comes with it has an attached reservoir.

If you add another radiator to the loop and place that new radiator above the pump (as in above your chip) then it is highly recommended to get that additional radiator with an attached reservoir. Your water cooling life is much easier with a reservoir above the pump.

If you keep the stock H220 radiator (that has an attached reservoir) above the pump, then any additional radiators you add do not need a reservoir.

The pump on the H220's CPU block is sufficient for ~3 blocks and 3 rads, so no need to get a second pump for 2 rads.

"Hi Jason,
Unfortunately we're currently experiencing a stock shortage for your item SKU# 79583 in all of our warehouses. I've checked with our product manager who takes care of this product line and it looks like our supplier is back ordered and awaiting stock from the manufacturer itself also. I cannot give an accurate ETA on when we will be getting our next shipment although we are doing everything we can to get this item. If you do not wish to wait we can either change your order for a similar item in stock providing the SKU# or we can cancel this item for a refund. Please reply to this ticket with confirmation and that we can charge you the applicable difference. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. We look forward in hearing back from you on how you would like to proceed.
Have a great day,"

I really don't know what to do now, I don't want to wait a full month for it but they have no clue when it will be back, could be Monday, could be in June or in 5 weeks.I could cancel it and find another retailer but I like NCIX. I've lurked this forum for a while and it also seems like the H220 have many problems: leaking, noise, pumps failing and it doesn't seem to be special that it fail. If it happens I could ask to RMA it and I'm sure they will take care of it but that's also more waiting and hassle. Decisions decisions... It's the only closed water loop that can be expended so that's neet and also the best one out there but w/e.

Could go with the H100i and get good fans, about same temperature right?Price is lower but can't expand with it.

Unfortunately, being that you didn't purchase this kit directly from us we are unable to issue you a refund. That would have to be up to the reseller that sold you this kit. I'm very sorry though that you experienced this issue. Please PM me and I'll see if there is anything we can do for you on our end.

NCIX should have these kits again shortly. I would check this weekend and early next week because we just sent them a shipment of them last Friday. They probably haven't received them yet, but they should have them shortly.

As far as the issues that customers are experiencing:

This is a forum where customers can come to give feedback and that's why there seems to be so many issues. I can assure you that the vast majority of users have not had issues with these kits. We have also witnessed about an 85% drop in RMAs for the most recent batch of these kits. This has been stated by Gabe himself. I hope you find this information useful and I hope you enjoy your H220 kit if that's what you decide to purchase.
