amazon buy my h220 .. I arrived here on Saturday to Paraguay - Latin America, I've been trying for 4 days out of the case, today install process. I did this because I read the leakage issue as I am far not if the warranty would cover me. I hope everything continues to work well. h80i who died had a LED and therefore switch to h220. I love the look smile.gif

The pump makes a whining noise once I hit 1600 RPMs or so... Should I assume that that's just trapped air, or is the pump meant to be a bit noisy at higher RPMs?
Temps are based on ambient for watercooling. There could be trapped air in there.

AISuite do not tell you core temps, just socket temps for the CPU, which most times is not accurate.

Not buggy at all when I used it.

Instructions are not needed. You dont see that in watercooling you buy. H220 is just the same. Leaks from defects are covered, and already stated from a case by case situation.

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!
H220 is not a CLC. CLC is the cooling Corsair, Antec, Zalman, Thermaltake (Which is made by Coolit and Asetek)
H220 is AIO, pre-built watercooling kit.
As for fans, the stock is more that capable to handle the rad. The difference from Noctua is small for the higher cost. Same goes for the AP-15/AP-14.

The stock fans on those are much faster than H220 fans. Its needed due to the higher FPI. Handful reviews are ok, but most lack proper testing. I tend to ignore them, as most is missing ambient, intake or exhaust settings.

H220 will outperform the single 140mm Kraken.

Here are a couple of reviews I was referencing:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6716/closing-the-loop-ii-new-liquid-coolers-from-corsair-and-swiftech/4

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/nzxt-kraken-x60_4.html

I would consider them fairly reliable sources and they both include ambients, but results can vary wildly based on your particular setup. With that said, the H220 has a slightly different target market than those products.

H220 will outperform the single 140mm Kraken.
Ai suite gives you a mb temp reading and that negative 34 degrees seems kind of buggy to me. And obviously the H220 is going to outperform the single Kraken, that's not the question, the question is to see by how much. And how much higher I can overclock. Like I said its just for fun playing around.

Got my H220 in and installed today. I think I'm gonna shorten the tubes a bit at some point:



The tubes aren't as close to the fan as they look, but still. It's a pretty decent improvement over my old H60. Prime blend was sitting mid 70s or so. H220:



I'm pretty happy with it. No leaks, cooler, and a ton quieter

You should consider flipping the H220 so you can make use of the reservoir to trap air.

Got my H220 installed last night on my 3930K rig...managed to fit it push-pull with a couple of corsair SP120 silent on the top of my CM 690 II Adv.
Took some time to figure out, but fits without mods, with lower fans touching the VRM heatsink on the top of my P9X79 Pro. Lower fans had to be the SP120s that are slightly smaller in diameter/width and have a different shape than the included fans.Upper fans went into the top shroud just fine.

I wasn't that impressed to be honnest as I was running a Silver Arrow cooler before it, so I got 4-5oC drop while folding, being in the 75ish region now and 4.6GHz @ 1.38V (CPU-Z reading).
Run a quick 4.8GHz test for an hour or so @ 1.4V and I would hit 83oC within seconds. Did not run any prime95 or w/e went straight to folding, then reversed to 4.6 to let it run overnight.

The power draw diference between 1.38 & 1.4V is in the region of 45-50W out of the wall, probably pushing the H220 out of its limits with the thin rad, even with push-pull fans. Disabling Qfan completely and running fans and pump all-out got me the same result, maybe it went there a few seconds later, but it was much noisier.

I don't know if I should just return/sell it and get an open loop, or practice with adding another rad which I can probably fit @ bottom of my 690 II...

The reviews that use the same setups on each test machine and have a history of reliability give the Swiftech a thumbs up for performance better than Kraken and better than H100i and H100i. You have a larger radiator with an H110i , it isn't even a fair comparison, but still the H220 triumphs. So my friend what you said is NOT really true. I pays to investigate before you speak. One persons experience is not a global view and knowing the reviewers methodology is important. Some reviewers have anything but a scientific approach to testing. Some are simply shills for a particular manufacturer that gives them a lot of freebies and may even advertise heavily on their web site. Be careful before you rush to judgement.

Sounds like with your needs you needed an H320 with a 360mm radiator. A 240-mm radiator for such intensive constant use is borderline inadequate. I don't think you will do any better on a Kraken, a Corsair or anything else in its size class.
