Just installed it with a new case, etc. Fingers crossed.

Corrosion will not cause shorting, but if traces or components in the circuit are damaged by corrosion then the circuit would malfunction.

In any case, it looks like he should be fine... it looks like the water only got on the backplate, so the electronics should be fine. The white residue is probably the additives Swiftech adds to the water to inhibit corrosion and bacterial growth, or possibly the dye used to color it. I suspect it will wipe off with a damp paper towel. Still, it's good that he caught it before any damage was done! Hopefully the rest of the system will check out OK.

Thanks for the tip, sucks I already boogered them up. I think when the backplate comes in I am going to try to install it without fully draining/disassembling the loop. It was pretty difficult to get it all in there with just one person. I think it can be done, just need to remove all the screws carefully. Also I have one spare plastic washer, was that intentional?

Runs about 48c max (22c room temp) at default 3570k settings.

I honestly don’t know how yours it setup, but I know putting my Heatkiller backplate on without taking it out of the loop would be impossible. You have to unscrew everything, then screw in longer ones that hold the whole thing together. I would check with the people where you bought it. When I asked the watercooling guy at FrozenCpu he made it clear that I could not add the backplate later without taking everything apart. As far as another washer, I think I may have had an extra one.

Nice. Now get to ocing that thing.

At my 4.5ghz default it was in the mid 70's after 15 minutes. Not too much different from the Zalman. May have to expand a bit.

Thanks, may just wait and put it in when I change something else. I'll figure it out later, man I am stoked at how cool this thing is running. Load temps on stock ref cooler were low to mid 80's. Now at load it hasn't gone over 40 C.

Well, BUMMER!! mad.gif

I am yet another victim of hoping for the best closed loop CPU cooler on the market. After about 3 days, and an otherwise perfect, brand new Intel 2011-based build, the fan speed errors started. I can hear the pump spinning up and then completely off while sticking my head in the case a bit... this happens in about 4-5 second intervals.

Tools for testing:
  • Asus in-BIOS tools
  • Intel's ETU
  • Asus Probe II
  • AIDA64 CPU/FPU Stress test

All tools reporting temps rising 10 degrees in 4 second span of time until the pump is back to max for 4-5 seconds. While under light use, like me typing a frustrating forum post, CPU idles at around 29C, CPU "fan" running at 1830'ish RPM reported by AIDA and Probe II. While under max load, pump is more erratic, temps start at 55C, then jump to appox 70C after 10 minutes, then pump kicks up again as stated previously. "Fan" speed under load goes from 2250 max to 0 every second.

Bypassed motherboard fan headers, using Swiftech supplied PDU with ONLY the Swiftech pump on the PDU powered via molex then connected to CPU fan header on the motherboard for readings only... same result across the board.

My systems specs for the record:

Intel Core i7-3820 - @Stock
Swiftech H220 Water Cooler - w/Corsair Air Series SP120
ASUS Rampage IV Formula
Corsair Dominator GT 16GB
Corsair Force GT SSD - RAID 0
WD Green 3TB HDD
ASUS GeForce GTX 670 4GB - SLI
OCZ Fatal1ty 1000W PSU
Corsair Obsidian 650D

Thankfully they are fairly easy to remove/install. Not sure if I will keep this RMA item whenever it comes. This is happening in WAY too many systems this last batch, and I can't afford to replace $650 worth of CPU and motherboard if the pump fails in the middle of the night.

This is frustrating because of the hopes dashed, as well as having to go through the process of replacement. Then having to do the research to decide if I should move on to something more reliable. The Corsair H100 was noisy and not nearly as high performance... but it worked without fail.

Sorry Swiftech team, I love your custom WC gear, but this China junk is BUNK!!

In the meantime please make it right... Thanks all!

For those of you worried about fan noise, it all comes down to fan selection and properly setting the curves for all of your fans.

My system, with three WC loops and push/pull all around, has 13 total fans, is completely silent at idle, and you can barely hear it when it's loaded while benching or gaming... and my temps are fantastic!

Completely anecdotal, but I've had zero functionality issues with my unit after over a month of 24/7 operation. A few speed bumps with my initial Speedfan configuration and one of my fans had some bearing noise (which was quickly replaced by Swiftech) have been my only issues.

I truly feel for the people who are having problems with the unit, I'm hopeful that Swiftech will be able narrow down the source of the problems. I'd like imagine we'll see a rev. 2 of the pump/block combo if they find an issue with the engineering. As for the manufacturing, I'm hopeful that the new facility will address any issues in this regard. I do cut them a little slack, only because they're actually making these units themselves and not using re-branded Coolit or Asetek units like Corsair or NZXT. That said I hope they can get past the growing pains and get these units as close to perfect as possible.
