Well, first result I've seen. 20c drop in temps on a Haswell after a delid and MX2 application...with the stock cooler.

Looks like Intel is using the same low quality TIM and application method.

Hi, I'm considering the H220, although I will be changing out the tubing for Primohill crystal clear tubing, and XSPC Clear/UV blue coolant, but would it be bad, if I put the radiator in the front of my Define R4? But before that, I would fill the loop, and then let it run for a good 12-24 hours with the reservoir above the pump, untill I can't spot any air.

Would it then be safe to put it in the front?

Yes, that should be fine as long as you've gotten all of the air out first before finally installing it. Just make sure that the reservoir is sitting at the top of the radiator when you install it in the front of your case so that the reservoir can still act as an air trap. This will become necessary when the coolant starts to evaporate after several months of use.

Good news is that my ticking noise seems to have subsided for now after running the pump with the fill port off at full speed for over an hour. Some of that was while playing BF3. Thanks Bryan for the help.

No problem. Let me know if you have any further concerns or issues. Just to let everyone here know that most of the time the noises that come from the pump are just air bubbles that have gotten pulled into it.

Is there any way to install an air trap in the loop? Would a regular tee work fine? My rads are both horizontally mounted so occasionally I hear water noise, but I want it to perform the best it can.

Yes, a tee with a bit of tubing on it and a cap will work fine as an air trap/ reservoir. Martin of Martinsliquidlabs has already confirmed this as a solution for those that have to run their kits with the fill port facing down.

Shameless plug wink.gif

(1) of the these:



plus (1) of these:



plus either (1) of these:



Plus 3x fittings of your choice, for example these:



and finally some tubing of your choice, preferably transparent to see the size of the bubble, and you are done biggrin.gif

I am sorry that you feel that way, but we are just as committed to the EU as we are to the US. If you have a problem with an RMA, you can always email me (gabe@swiftech.com) or bryan (bryan@swiftech.com) and we will do everything we can to speed things up. We can miss things sometimes, as we are only people, but all it takes is a gentle reminder, and we get things done :-)
