To the best of my knowledge, other companies consider these issues on a case by case basis, and so do we. The fact that one (or even a few) customers got their gear replaced does not mean that the warranty includes damage to other components.

completly understand i just tested mine and let it run for a few no leaks couldnt even hear the thing tubes were full of fluid so im 100%confident that i made the right choice i do understand swiftechs position on warranting this cooler. makes sense i take it apart and bork it why should you pay for my goof i'll post pics and temp results when the builds are done YEAH

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 have an ASUS board so go to the ASUS website for your motherboard and download the AI Suite, it has an app called Fan Expert which will help you to control all of your fan headers within windows. You can also check the rpm speed at the same time, 1600-2200 rpm is the sweet spot the H220 as any higher and the fans are loud and temps dont really change much.
I use it with my H220 and is cooling my IVY processor very easily. 3770k 4.7 1.37v 86c max while folding during this heatwave in CT with no AC and in a closed room all day.

They have changed the way they reimburse people and they have set limits on each and any component that is damaged. ie $100 for motherboard or $150 for video card, not sure of exact limits but I remember thinking that it wouldn't really cover many people components fully.

Saying that they are going to reimburse him really isnt true.

fyi aisuite is extremely buggy for alot of people. i would recommend speedfan or one of the many other softwares out that can control your fans, for temps and volts i recommend hwinfo64

Hey guys
This is my first post on this website, as I recently became interested in watercooling my build. I am interested in the H220 because of the ability to expand the loop.
I have a 3570K and 7870, and am wondering if the H220 is the best performing CLC on the market right now (and how it would compare to a budget open loop system). I want to go all out on an open loop, but I feel it would be a waste of money at this point with my hardware.
I've been reading comments on this thread about how hard it is to fit noctua fans (which I've read are the best performing for the H220). Has this been a major issue?

Thanks in advance!

It out performs all other closed loop coolers. I'd estimate a custom loop with a 240 radiator, pump, reservoir, tubing, fittings, ect. to cost close to double what the H220 does. For fans, I would recommend either the Gentle Typhoon AP-15 or AP-14 over the NF-F12's.

Put tamper proof tube lockers on there, include the special tool to take them off and have the warranty read that once they have been removed, the warranty for leakage is gone. There are lots of different ways you could implement something to that effect.

Swiftech should add instructions into the user manual to leak test the kit for some amount of time before installing it even if you don't modify it at all. Since leaks from manufacturing defects are not covered up by anyone but the user.
