goddamit. something is messed up with my CPU now. I know it.

The temps are idle are fluctuating for no reason from 30's to 50's to 30's then to even 60's without even touching anything or moving my mouse.

I noticed some type of scratch on the swiftech cooler and even the CPU , which I have no idea how it got there since I use a lint -free cloth and am very gentle and I didn't even slide the CPU block on top.

All I did was put the noctua fans and then re-did the TIMM and re-seated.

Oh, and I put the PWM splitter.

Is there any chance this could be the PWM splitter not giving power, thus the temp spikes? I'm freaked about by the scratch on teh CPU I saw, and not sure what it is..


I guess I'll remove this PWM splitter first, since the first one I had was garbage and I bet this was is corrupted too

OK, someone needs to explain to me how I ran without the PWM splitter @ 1.262 voltage for 4.6GHz with AIDA64 for 2 hours and no errors.

temps were around 70's C with occasional spikes to lower 80's on 1 or 2 cores.

NOW, I just installed the replacement PWM splitter and I crashed 5 times running at the same voltage/speed and cores were spiking to 90's!

I thought it was so weird that I could hear the fans revving down and up ,so I figured it may be a faulty PWM splitter AGAIN....

removed it, now running aida64 in 70's C range with occasion spikes to lower 80'S C!

How? Could the PWM splitter be the cause of all these problems? Is it not giving enough energy to my CPU or something and thus the high temperatures?

something is up here... hmmm...rolleyes.gif

I tested your splitter before I sent it, as I do all of these before shipping them out. I would suggest that you look at the pins in the connector to see if they are all seated properly. If they are then I really don't know what could be causing your issue. Also check your Molex connection. That's the one with the black and yellow wire. Let me know what you find.

Everything was going fine.

They finally sent me a replacement PWM splitter and I plugged everything into it (CPU on CHA 1 and 2 radiator fans on the other 2 pins slots).

The only weird thing is my CPU temps are fluctuating pretty rapidly and I KEEP hearing the Noctua NF-F12 fans rev'ving up, almost like the RPM is slowing down then increasing in a cyclic matter....

It's really ANNOYING!

Should the fans be getting 100% power and going at 100% via the PWM splitter? or is it cycling the RPM based on temperature?

Should the settings be changed via BIOS or is their software to control this from swiftech ?

You should be able to control your pump and fans via your BIOS. Are you sure that you're fans are PWM controlled? This could be the reason for them acting funny.

I have one of these coming in the mail, just had a few questions.

What are you not allowed to do/ what would void the warranty?

I plan on shortening the lines to make it more manageable and cleaner in my R4. If I save the liquid in a sterile container, is it safe to re-use it? Should I filter it before I re-use it?

Big thanks to anyone who can help me with these questions.

You're allowed to do what ever you want, thats what makes it a great unit! I'm not sure swiftechs stance on what happens if it leaks on your gear, so do a leak test before you put it back in your case when you shorten the tubes.
It's perfectly fine to use the liquid again. I strained mine with a coffee filter and reused it. I also topped it up with some distilled water.

As far as the warranty goes, I'll have to get back to you on that. I need to get some clarification on it tomorrow when I get into work.

You can re-use the fluid. We don't recommend it because we can't guarantee the condition of the container that it's put into. If you have a sterile container though then there shouldn't be an issue. You shouldn't have to filter it either. Remind me tomorrow to find out what would void the warranty on this kit.

Thanks for the replies, I'll be sure to remind you.

One last question: does Swiftech sell the hose clamps used on the H220? Or is there any way to get more?

Edit: It would be nice to know what happens if another component is damaged due to a leak.

Heads up that the h220 is 129.99 on sale at sidewinder.

Also you will now need a new case. 600T lacks support for dual 240, unless you do some modding to the front and lose the HDD cage.

he can also get 2x 120mm rads. i dunno that case though sorry . fitment is on you guys lol but i dont reccomend less then 2 x120 per peice. you can do it. but temps wont really drop that much .

This usually helps to get it on and stretch the tubing out a bit.

ill +1 that
