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.

Thanks for the info, Actually this is what I've been thinking about. Usually you hear more about consumers with problem (specially on a forum about the product) then the one without. Kinda like in the OCZ days where everyone was claiming their ssd was **** because most complain on ssd was about OCZ's one. The thing is they shipped the majority of ssds so that's why there was more complain on internet about it. I've canceled my order on NCIX with a refund and ordered on frozencpu, they had ONE in stock and I was lucky to get it. Also had my Scythe Gentle Typhoon fans and some pk3 witch wasn't available on ncix. Kinda feel bad about it cause their consumer support is A1. Guess they'll get my money for haswell and a mobo so no biggie.

Why would I have 4 fans on the H220? I just have push or pull on my rads, not push/pull. Most people say NF-F12 is a quiet fan, but I think they are loud at full speed, that is why I slow them down to under 1000rpm, then they are very quiet. I also put the H220 pump at 30%.

Ok, there is a very big difference between 20 and 25c, but I can say I did 69, 72, 70, 68 in a 24.4c room with the case closed up and everything set to minimum settings for max quiet. That is with Prime95 8k test which is pretty much the hottest and using 90% ram.

Not trying to say you can’t keep the air cooler and mod something for a gpu at all. I was just trying to say why I did it. And with one of the highest chip and gpu overclocks on OCN I get really good temps for my hardware considering the silence of the rig. Not to mention my loop looks good too, since I know some people care about that.

You can save a ton of money with an air cooler and a simple gpu mod where you don’t care about a good vram oc. The H220 with adding a rad or two plus fittings, tubing, and coolant is not cheap. But it is a fraction of what most full custom water guys spend, without that much loss in performance.

would you say 4 fans real low speed> 2 fans running faster is better for cooling and sound?

It will completely depend on your situation and what fans are being used. Every situation is going to be a little different.

Just so somebody does say “pics or it didn’t happen” here is my Real Temp and Valley run. You can see the gpu temps in the upper right. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

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.
So sorry to see that...you can take your card to a electronics repair and have it cleaned up I would think. Shouldnt be too expensive for such a small thing.

^I have seen benchers wash mobos in sinks and even run them through the dishwasher. You can get most things in your rig wet, and as long as you completely dry them out before turning them on, they are usually fine.

Thanks for the reply. I am not worried of the 139 € kit at all if that is what you meant, I am worried of the GTX 680 which costed me 565,90 €. I will contact the reseller and see what they will say. Probably they will contact Swiftech from there, but it's going to be a very long and futile process I'm afraid. I am not going to install this or any other H220 kit in any of my computers anymore. Neither will I buy the new H320 kit which I was planning to do. I don't have the time, patience or willpower to do it. Due to the pump issues, it could very well be that my 3960X has as well already degraded a bit from shutdown temperatures it was experiencing when overclocked.

I am not convinced of the quality of these kits. I have a few years of PC hardware RMA dept background myself, and I simply can't recommend this kit to anyone I know. I know that majority of the members here have a working kit, but now I've seen myself three failed kits and with two kinds of issues. Swiftech has admitted that there really have been some quality issues. Leaks can of course happen in any AIO system as well, but these issues have now gone beyond my patience. I installed my old issue-free H100 back today and I'm happy with it. I visually investigated my motherboard, RAMs and PSU and hope the coolant didn't ruin any of them.

These are my thoughts, hopefully the other members here have a better experience with the H220, especially in the long run.

It usually corrodes over time eventually shorting somewhere. Just my experience with phones and ipods though, not pc parts! :-!

after 3 weeks my pump just randomly turns off, and only comes back on after being off for about 30 minutes.

i flushed the whole loop and then bled it really well to see if it would fix it, but nope, still dies randomly.

pretty disappointed.
