So I got around to adding in my GPU last night. Everything seemed to go well, but something happened to it. Not to sure what, but since I put on the Koolance block it is completely unstable under any kind of load. I can't even plug in two monitors since that loads up the RAM and it will reboot shortly after logging in. It idles at around 35c, cooler than stock. But under even 15% load at stock specs, the temps go up to 55c. If I apply my OC, it reboots. The heat spikes under even the smallest load.

I thought maybe some of Koolance's conductive paste got on the card else where, but I couldn't see anything after taking it apart. I don't recall accidentally jabbing it with anything, I can't find any noticeable damage.
I have spent alot of time bleeding the loop and am doubtful an air bubble in the block is the cause.
I will check out my mobo for any damage later.

All I can think it that the card is FUBAR. I am lost and a bit gutted right now.
Edit: The DVI port has intermittent signal issues now... HDMI is fine. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuu--

Anyone wish to impart some wisdom?
Is your version has 6+6 or 6+8 pci connector?
Thinking maybe you not tighten correctly and not getting proper contact.

6+8. But there seems to some signal issues that improper contact can't cause. My DVI port has intermittent signal now while HDMI is fine.

Hey guys, on the fence about ordering an H220 and was hoping you could help me make up my mind.

At the moment I have a Haf XM, and my concern is that I won't be able to fit the radiator inside with the reservoir in the proper up position. From what I've measured I should be able to put the radiator on top, then use a gasket and mount the fans inside.

The debate begins here, I can get a Storm Trooper case for a bargain. From what I've seen that would allow me to mount an H220 on either the top or the bottom with no issues. I'm not sure if I'm going to add to the loop, so that's not really a factor at this time. Just wondering what you guys think my best option is.

Installed my H220. Swiftech has the best mounting system I've ever used by far.







Some bent fins, but we are covering them up with fans anyway. I wish they were straighter though. All that matters is the better performance in the end. The H100i has aluminum fins, the H220 is copper!!





I'm going with push pull GT AP-15 fans. I have six of them an they perform nice on rads with good static pressure. I put the Swiftech fans in the bottom of the case for intakes. I set up my H220 as an exhaust. Sure that is not as nice as cold air coming into the rad but it makes more sense to vent the heat up. I have all the other fans blowing in for positive pressure to help fight dust.



I used the 8 silver 30mm bolts that came with the H220 to mount the fans (after I begged a neighbor for a thin Phillips Driver to remove the Swiftech Helix PWM fans). I used two a fan diagonally. For the bolts going through the SM8's top rad drop-in mount I simply used the bolts bare. The additional thickness of the drop-in mount was ideal. For the bolts going through just a fan to the H220's rad, the bolts seemed a hair too long. Since I had removed the H220's non-socket 2011 hardware and installed the socket 2011 spring bolts, I had 4 nylon retention spacers I could repurpose. Worked like a charm.



I use the mounting bar to hide the H220's tubing and my MSI 680 Lightning's cables. I wanted the H220's tubing to not block the view of the pump. I think I did ok but I felt the tubing was a couple of inches too long. It was too short to use down below but too long to be useful up top. You can of course shorten it but I'm certainly not doing that now - and that's no reason to not make it ideal out of the box. And if I rotate the H220 res/fittings up top in that forward position it can't reach the CPU. If I put it in the far back, the case wall blocks it. So really I have only two options up here on the SM8's roof, middle facing either way or forward facing one way.





Drop-in mounts for the SM8 makes things so much easier to install. As you can see, the fill port is ideally located in this position and you could still use all four fan positions. Because the drop in mount is shifted back more than the floor mounts in this case I can also mount a front FlexBay fan up top. You could not do this with the H220 mounted in the same position below.







I had some Noctua TIM laying around. I used that as it is non-curing, non-conductive, performs good, and spreads nice. I personally use a hospital glove, the super stretchy kind. It spreads at first but then the glove will start mopping it back up as it starts to turn tacky. So I kind of start with an ample amount and use that tackiness to paint in reverse. It results in a micro fine layer but if you wait a moment too long it gets too tacky and picks up everything. So I could not photo document the process on the actual CPU.











Look at what my Swiftech 8-Way PWM Splitters lets me replace.

This...



... or this.





Having four Swiftech 8-Way PWM Splitters is actually very handy. I don't need all those channels (right now) but having four allows all my fans to reach a channel better. This reduces my need for fan extension cables to just about zero. Whenever I go to PWM fans I will be set. In the meantime my non-PWM GT AP-15s are not that bad at full blast on these adapters. When I can afford that Aquaero 5 I'll have to rethink my cable-fu.

If only there was a way to connect the Aquaero's 3-pin fan power cables and voltage control functionality to the Swiftech adapters molex. I found this page at FrozenCPU but I'm not sure if any of those adapters would connect the two products and work the way I'm thinking:

http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g47/c251/s634/list/p1/Fan_Accessories-Fan_Cables-3_Pin_Adapters-Page1.html

That way you could take out the middle adapter and leave the Swiftech Adapters in place if you ever upgrade to PWM. I like it when it's modular.

With the XM you can mount in the front, but the res is facing towards the rear of case. I'm not sure on the top panel, as no proper mounting, just for 200mm fan only.
Lets see what reps have to say about this? Mounting horizontally with res facing rear of case.

What kind of bargain can you get the Trooper for? If less then $100US good, if not look at Fractal Arc Midi R2.
