I suppose I should have specified, I have a 3570k. I keep it at stock, and my 7950 is voltage locked, so my clocks on that top out at 1050/5600 anyway, so it's nothing crazy.

As far as fans go, there's no way I could stand some 3000rpm fans all day long, I want this thing as quiet as I can. On my H80 on the medium speed profile (1300-2200rpm I think) I have some AF120 Quiets which do the job fairly well I'd say. If I have to swap out the fans, I'm perfectly fine with that; I'll get whatever I have to to get a quiet sound system.

My personal opinion experience: non overclocked or medium overclocked CPU + any current single GPU card and you are fine with the kit as shipped, with our fans at low speed (1300 for example).

Have you tried a stock CPU with an overclocked GPU? I'm mulling around the idea of getting a 7970 or a 670 and I would aim for one that I could overclock and slap a block onto it.

Then refilled with the OG fluid and topped off with distilled water after having let it run while tilting for over an hour to rid the air from the system.

This is what I found:



whatever it is its metal... No more "grinding" or "gurgling"... My temps are much better now as well, about 4-5c full load lower (Didn't expect this... but amazed non the less).

ADDED: the dime was place for size reference next to the foreign black objects that came out of the loop.

When and where did you purchase this kit..

It is absolutely essential for us to know about this. We have implemented all kind of measures to prevent this from happening in the April & May shipments, and if we still find debris, we need to understand where it's coming from..

FYI, we do implement systematic flushing (with 60 PSI & distilled water) of the radiators prior to filling the kits.

Has anyone replaced the stock fans on this unit and have your temps improved any and what fans you used. I hear that static pressure fans are not really needed for this radiator as it has 13fpi according to martinsliquidlab.

I did not actually test the stock fans, I did replace mine with Noctua NF F12 fans based on what Linus showed in his redux video review.

GT Ap-15s squeezed a few more degrees out of the h220 for me. I'd est. around 2C improvement.

Yes I have, and in my experience, it's no problem.

Linus is not a reviewer I would trust at all. His methods are in question. The NF-F12 is designed to be used as push. Pull can be done, but pointless as other fans will do better.
I use the stock, P12/F12 and in push. P12/F12 is 1-2c better than stock at 1200rpm. At its max speed there was no difference.
Tried the F12 in pull, and got worse temps and terrible noise profile.

If he is not a reviewer then what is he? He was side by side with Gabe at CES with the H220. I also tried the NF F12 in both push and pull, temps didn't change.

Well crap....4 days of use and the pump has already gotten noticeable louder. No pump drop outs or anything, but disconcerting none the less.
