Hey guys! I'm really considering getting this cooler to cool my fx 8350. I don't want to add a gpu block or anything for a while. If I was to add a new rad say a Black Ice sr1 120 and use all scythe gentle typhoon fans on both rads in push/pull, would it be much better than just the h220 stock performance? Or would I only be looking at say a 1 or 2 degree decrease in temps?

Make sure the 7950 you have is of reference model PCB. Also look at the Swiftech GPU block.
360+240 is more than enough. Dont need the extra 120mm rad.

Yeah I would look at the Komodo, but it costs almost twice as much so I don't know about that. I know there is a reason, but yeah. Maybe you can talk me into it. The 7950 is a ref pcb.
So I add the older HydrX in? Or only older HydrX?

i just recieved the h220 looks good small marks on the tubes from shipping nothing serouse(no cuts)

how long should i test it for leaks?

also i noticed fittings on the pump and radiator (oposite side from swiftech logo on the pump) are more loose then other side, is that normal?

welcome, testing runs the gambit from a few hours, to a couple days, to no testing, its a matter of how comfortable you are with it. I ran mine thru a weekend off and on. fittings loose meaning the actual screws and fitting are loose or the ease of swiveling? didn't notice a difference on mine.

Yeah typically no temp difference at all.

Some do no leak testing at all, as it should be ready out of the box. Others say 30 mins to 12 hours. Up to you what you feel safe with.

It the fittings seem loose then tighten them they can only tighten so far so be careful.

So even with another rad and the fans upgraded I probably wouldn't be able to hit a safe 5ghz or close to on fx8350?

yep the pump arrived dead, i tryed with fan splitter and without just pluged it into the motherboard, tryed other connectors on the board all say 0rpm, i tryed to put some random fan on the board in the same connector its working so the board is good.

when i touch the pump i dont feel anything...

and i tought i would be lucky one with no problems....
oh i hate when this happends.

I did something similar except I also cool my 7970. I found the CPU temperatures to be slightly better, but the gpu temperatures were a good bit better with the extra single 120mm rad. With a 360mm rad added temps were much better.

I can only fit a 120 and a 240 rad in my case. It's a CM HAF XB. I'm just really tossing up whether to get a custom loop or buy a h220 and customise that a little but my goal is to hit 4.8-5ghz with my system being quite quiet.

I have that case too. I got the swiftech single 120 high performance,was able to do 5 ghz stable eith my 6300 on the 2 rads.
