Alternatively, if you have another backplate that you know fits, you can probably just use it with the H220.

if i do that then i won't gonna be able to install a GPU. i have an SG08 case and the "mobo tray" is also the bottom of the case

I'm about a week in with my H220 and the pump is still so obnoxiously loud that I set a maximum PWM percentage in speedfan of 20% so that the pump RPMs won't go above 1400 or so (which is when the noise starts). I've spent a good deal of time running the pump at higher RPMs while tilting the case around, and giving the tubing some decent taps near the connecting points to try to get any air bubbles out. What would be my next step?

Well I took everything apart, tried pump connector directly to CPU_FAN header and then hooked up the pwm splitter to the CPU_OPT fan header on my mb.
Now everything is working again, thanks! biggrin.gif

We do have a physical business front here in Long Beach. However, we don't currently allow direct sales. We just aren't set up here for that kind of business and you'd be better off just purchasing from us online.

Have you tried the techniques that are given in the OP? If not, please give those a try. If they still don't work for you then please PM me and we'll see about getting your kit replaced. Don't worry though, we'll get you taken care of.

Would the stock H220, although with NF-F12's on, be able to cool a reference GTX 760, and a completely stock i7 3770 non k.

The clocks on the i7 range from 3.1-3.98 ghz.

Yep, it would be fine. Specially at stock. If you try a heavy OC on both GPU and CPU then perhaps you would need to expand another 120, 140, or 240/280 mm radiator but in your case you should be fine.

Awesome!

Might be a while before I get whole thing bought and set up :/

Upon further examination, it doesn't seem to be my pump. I pulled the fan connectors from the rad fans and the noise pretty much stopped. I could hear a slight motor sound from the pump at very high RPMs, but nothing like what I was hearing before. I did all the methods in the OP to free up air bubbles. At this point I believe it may just be the fans running at high RPMs causing vibrations in the somewhat flimsy mesh top of my case (HAF932). I tried to plug the pump straight into the CPU header and use the PWM splitter just for the 2 rad fans in a system fan port to decouple the fan RPMs from the pump RPMs, but the fans defaulted to full speed when I did that and I couldn't figure out a fix in speedfan.

I heard i can use distilled water, do i need to add some other ingredients like mould and kill coil etc?

Thanks! Cant wait for my shipment.


I have had two units, neither was noisy. the first ran two months, the second still running. they are/have been so quite I was unaware the first pump died when it went and probably spent a bit of time on there dead to my horror. no damage done though, and switch support was great in working with.

have not opened or drained my unit, though some time in the next two weeks i will be to add a gpu block. right now almost all the noise i hear out of my tower is the gpu.
