Hello everyone. I'm new to this site. smile.gif I was searching about the Swiftech H220 and found this forum. I decided to buy this watercooler in a couple of months to mount in the front section of my Fractal R4. The case has a fan control switch in the front panel that can control up to 3 fans in 3 different speeds. But from what I've read the Helix fans are PWM and don't work correctly by changing the voltage, did I understand that right? If so, I'll just use the PWM header on my motherboard then.
Also, how are the Gelid UV fans, those look pretty nice, are they good for static pressure?
Another question, I notice a Swiftech employee state a white hose variant coming soon? If so, that's great, it'll look great. smile.gif Does it also have a white shrouding around the fins, or will it still be black? Thanks! smile.gif

I think that they would only go black with white accents judging by past products. You can always put on white tubing yourself, I suggest this one by far:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00A9ZDJ40/ref=mp_s_a_1?qid=1363327355&sr=8-2&pi=SL75

You can voltage control PWM fans but they may or may not be pleasing sound wise that way and may possibly click. They are designed to run at 12 volts all the time and be controlled via PWM signals and work with software or bios to automatically change speeds. Really that's the better way if they are PWM fans. I'm going to tell you to buy the non-PWM GT AP-15 fans cus I'm into them, however there are a few PWM options that are nice, the Swiftech Helix PWM fans are nice, but I don't remember which other good PWM models are out there. Noise Blocker brand possibly. Anything with good static pressure and performance to sound ratio.

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.

I've seen 240mm radiators strapped to the drive cages, but for some reason the 120mm fan mounts are offset, meaning I'd have to use zip ties.

I like the look of that Fractal Arc Midi R2, just wish it was slightly larger. Might have to throw that one into the running. I'm also looking at the Bitfenix Ghost, it looks pretty nice.

I was thinking of a different case when you mentioned the HAF XM. Was thinking oh the HAF XB instead. So ignore my layout.
The Midi R2 is small, but gives you plenty of room. Very good layout for dual rads. You can see it in my profile.

Here is mine.



I am going to remount with the fill port on the top and hopefully fit another pull set of sp120s inside the case. If not I will have to mount them on top.

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.

got a storm trooper

very good case

to fit the h220 in the top you wont be able to do push/pull due to the handle

to fit it in the bottom i think you need to remove the ssd cage and possibly the drawer and bottom hard drive cage

could also fit it in the front by removing both hard drive cages

ALMOST DONE. I will be getting my fan extensions and 5 way splitters today to finish the build. This is a pic after i flipped the h220 over so the fill port was facing up. Sorry for the poor pic quality and the lighting. My shop area is lit 10x more than an emergency room.

Seems to be some quality control problems at the Chinese factory. I had the same thing and so did another poster. My replacement unit arrives today. Fingers crossed.

This time -- and my advice to anyone getting a new unit -- I will test run the H220 *before* I remove my air cooler and mount the rad/block.
