The H220 and H100i are comparable to high end air coolers for cpu cooling. The difference is you can add a gpu to the loop and not increase the temps to the chip.

Eh I thought the H220 was supposed to be as good as custom loops?

So why not just keep an air cooler and buy a cheap $50 Corsair closed kit and put that on the gpu and have better temps? Jus sayin...

If I turn the AC on in my room, I can drop temps quite a few degrees. I don't know what my exact room temps are, but running the AC for a while I can see my temps go from low 30's at idle to mid 20's or less. Everyone has a different situation of course.

You can use the tubing you have, it is just that you need a 90 degree fitting going into the card to avoid that one kink. Also tape over the Swiftech fittings will keep them from getting scratched.

Having an air cooler would give me slightly worse temps with more sound. I get my temps with silent settings, I don’t use fans over 950rpm.

I have a 690, that has two 680s and a plx bridge to cool as well as a lot of memory chips. I wouldn’t have the most powerful 690 on OCN right now without a full coverage block and water. I can drop the gpu oc slightly and use vsync for gaming and my temps drop measurably.

What were your room temps with that run? And do you have your air cooler set at half speed?

Very well put. This is what many people miss when they consider water cooling. They usually think that it's just about performance. It's about performance, but at tolerable noise levels. That's why I run three radiators. I don't do it so that I can crank my fans up and get the best performance. I do it so that I can get great performance with minimal noise levels. This is where water cooling has a significant advantage over air cooling. In order to get similar performance with an air cooler you'll need to run it at full speed. That's just something I can't tolerate in terms of noise levels.

Not sure on room temps dont have a thermo, but im guessing 20-25c. I only have one fan on the air cooler its a Corsair Sp120 fan, plugged into mobo.

Silence is golden. I love my NZXT Phantom 630 case. With my current fan setup using the Noctua NF F12 on the H220, I run all my fans off the controller that came with the case. It has 3 settings, I am on the middle of the three and I can hear the TV in my other room over my PC. If I turn it to high speed, then I hear the Noctua's, but not the 200mm intake and 140mm exhaust that are stock case fans. On low speed, the PC is on and unless you look at the LED lights, you cant even tell its on. The pump is also silent at just under 1200RPM using the CPU1 header.

With case fans and 4 fans on a h220 rad it can't be that quiet surely...

It can be if you run them at minimal speeds. You'd be surprised. I have an H220 on my work system sitting right here next to me and I can hear the router over the sound of the computer.

I am just glad I didn't spend the money on a full custom loop. I will admit though, they look amazing. Heck even looking at a kit for around $270 or so, would be nothing more than a waste of money. I have always been about safe temps over the BEST temps.
