I literally did not TOUCH ANYTHING.

What the fudge?

I am infuriated right now. The first day I got the cooler, the PWM splitter was damaged but I received a new one. Now, the unit was working fine and just merely stopped; without me touching anything.

I just double checked all the connections and everything is plugged in properly, and it was running fine earlier today anyway...

Help? I'm just going to go to best buy and pick up a Corsair cooler now, ugh...

Chillax, the h220 isn't going to be perfect especially in r1. Get a cheap corsair one to tie you over until your RMA'd 220 comes back to you. I'm never going back to corsair again and i had the r1 h100

Are you using any software to control fan or bios only?

If there is still a problem, contact Swiftech they will take good care of you.

I'm using the PWM splitter. I have almost all the slots on it filled, would this matter? (I have all my chassis fans and radiator fans in push/pull, hooked up to it)

I"ll bypass it I suppose, THOUGH, everything was working PERFECT earlier today and I didn't touch anything, so that doesn't make any sense.....

I'm just using "optimal" in the z87 sabertooth bios with the CPU fan on "turbo setting' but low RPM at 600.

I'm not using any software to control ANYTHING.

wait are you telling me a cheap pwm splitter failed? I mean look at it, its not supposed to be anything amazing or guaranteed to last forever. That's not even an h220 issue that's just a bonus component and quite frankly its a piece imo. Go straight to the board and run any "Non essential fans" off 3pin > 4pin molex connectors from best buy or wherever to free up pwm headers on your sabertooth.

I very highly doubt you need to pwm every single fan in your case. I have the exhaust fan on my 800D hooked up via molex connector. And all my essential fans hooked up to the board itself (using sabertooth z77). If and when i get more fans. I'll be buying a pretty decent fan controller. But don't ever put your trust in a $3.00 piece of plastic and pcb with a 3M adhesive tape lol

Imagine if you had gone off and dumped $120.00 on a corsair cooler at best buy, only to find out that it was a cheap pwm splitter that was stopping you from using it. Just invest $40.00 or whatever into a really nice fan controller and you will be golden

Mr. Enthusiast gamer, you're wrong

Pump is dead. I'm 100% sure now; by-passed the PWM splitter and plugged into BOTH CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT fan headers on my motherboard and same "CPU Fan Error" message.

Thing is, I KNEW something was messed up 110% sure because the computer ran all morning and I didn't touch ANYTHING then now it doesn't work.

Doesn't take a rocket scientist to know it's not the PWM splitter.

So, yeah. I'll definitely RMA it, but to be honest, I'm selling it on ebay as soon as I get it, and getting a Kraken x60 or H110i from BestBuy tomorrow.

No offense, and I really don't want to be mean, but the amount of "CPU fan errors" or dead pumps is just unbelievable.

It might be a great product, but the the engineering or something is heavily skewed.

My fellow gamer friend just purchased one 3 days ago, and he had a DoA dead pump.

Anyway, just my honest 2 cents. Good game, well played.

thanks for the help.

For one the PWM splitter is very good design. I have 2 of them currently and its great for PWM fans and pumps.
Fan controllers are not so great at times, as its voltage control and can be troublesome is most situations. You dont control PWM fans with voltage, as the effect on them is not good, and you lose the actual potential of the fans.

Dont bother to buy anything else. Swiftech will fix your problem, without issues. Just use the stock cooling or what ever you have.
If you think the X60 or H100i is any better, you're mistaken. What do you think will happen if those fail. Same thing to RMA, but a little harder to deal with.

That's pretty odd. I still wouldn't throw in the towel on them just because of problems. I'm sure the corsair line of products had many problems at first. I know you want reliability and quite honestly id lean towards swiftech a lot more than i would Corsair. Seeing as Corsair entered the market with ram, and is now into AIO's. Where as Swiftech unless i am mistaken has 100% been involved in WC since day one.

You cant constantly be replacing or worrying about your systems cooling i get that. Hopefully your H100i gets the job done for you.

Also have you rulled out the possibility of it being your Z87 Sabertooth? Didn't that just come out?

Well, the odds of it being the sabertoth are slim to none.

all the other fan headers work perfectly fine - so it's either assuming that BOTH asus CPU fan headers are "dead"

or

the water cooler that has about 50-100 posts about a dead pump is faulty.....


choose wisely

The posts here are just a small amount compared to how many sold.
I'm on my 2nd H220, first one started having issues about 35 days after I got mine.
In 5 days I had another one sent to me, and Swiftech paid for shipping both ways. New one is working great, and actually better for the last month.
The few we had only mine had issues, which is good.

Let Swiftech fix your problem, before you buy anything else.

You know, just about any wc loop is prone to problems(e.g corsair trickling water problem that was fixed with batches, had its own thread in OCN talking about it). normal WC problems on top of the fact that this is a first group in a way of a newish WC loop doesnt help much. when going into ANY form of watercooling, its not rare to see that there is problems no matter who manufactures it. The reason why it sounds like so many pumps die is the fact that when reviewing something, nearly everyone reviews it if something bad happens to their unit. probably less than 5% actually review it if their unit is working perfectly fine. Swiftech even openly gave a statement that their RMA % is alot lower and is over exaggerated by complaints through the forum, as not everyone walks in with a good unit and says that swiftech is doing a good job, they just use the unit and more or less back off discussing about it.
