hey guys help me out, my 4770k died due my mistake, I got new one running all at stock nothing touched
i installed it like this so i will have less space issue

at idle (downloading surfing etc) my temps around 70c witch is not normal.

i screwed everything till the end, used swiftech paste on the ihs(cpu is not delidded) metod for spreading used with credit card equal thin layer.

one of the tubes on the photo(upper one) is really worm other one(down) is cold so i guess pump is working
both fans set of fans are working.

any ideas?

i checked the backplate and all the screws are equally outside

maybe the paste is not so good?

It was more frustrating than anything.

Once I got the backplate on, the fans replaced everything has been peachy. 25c on idle and 65c on load. Pump has been purring away nicely.

OK, then it sounds like you have everything installed properly.

Try re-seating the cooler. Something is not right. And no, it is not the quality of the paste. Pump is running normally? Can you enter BIOS and check pump speed? Did you use the PWM splitter to install the h220?

Dont spread the thermal paste, as you will mostly be removed when you put pressure from the block. Just a drop (rice or pea size) in the center and let the block do the spreading. Screw down in a cross pattern and make sure you have a good tight feel with your fingers.

How tight is the contact between the VRMs heatsink on the mobo and the barb/tubing of the H220? Another user couldn't mount the H220 on the same board because the heatsink obstructed the mounting.

He appears to have it working again. It was most likely just a temporary obstruction in the pump due to an air bubble. He'll let me know if he has any further issues.

only just finally got round to opening my h320 fully

took it out the box and something was rattling

turned it upside down and 2 of the little silver screws that hold the fans fell out

no biggie just screwed them in

just got to attack my storm trooper to make it fit

is it better to mount this vertically or horizontally?

or doesn't it matter?

and heres the pics--shows that nice sata connector thumb.gif

I would think it would depend on how the case is oriented, but the thing to watch for for the least maintenance is having the reservoir opening pointed upwards so it can catch bubbles. which is slightly harder to do vertically since, it means the tubing is generally coming from the bottom of the case all the way to the cpu.

Posted this in the Corsair 540 forum too, but here are a few pics of mine. H220 pump is running like a champ, first time since I got it that I think all the air is out or in the res. Pump pushes flow to the heatkiller block, additional 360 radiator, and the h220 rad perfectly fine. Just need to figure out some cool looking cover for the pump/block. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

sounds logical

though putting it horizontally on top of this case would mean a lot more cutting and losing the use of the handle and hot swap bay

i assume i could stick the h320 in the empty case with just a spare psu and no components to test?

ie no motherboard etc

this would just make the pump and fans run at full speed as no pwm control would be available?
