I wouldn't run tap water through it.

But I never done something like that.

Any ideas on what could be wrong? Its a h220 on a and CPU with the pump barbs going left and right.

Personally I don´t think that is a problem. You can run tap water as long as after you flush all your parts with dist. water prior to fill up with coolant.

Edit: Answered my own question. Would need to have a g1/4 female to female adapter. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=30435

You would need that, a barb or 3/8x5/8" compression fitting, and a short piece of tubing to run at each of the barbs, in order to properly adapt them to rigid tubing.

i thought about heating distilled water in the microwave and just put enough in it to fill the rad about a third or so

I personally use Martin method for flushing and cleaning parts:

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/02/26/flushing-your-block-rads-clean/

You can use warm water from the tap to flush and backflush both blocks and rads and latter just flush them again with distilled.

But, yep, you can just warm the distil and then put it in the rad and gently shake things a bit for cleaning too.

Finally started assembling this H220 loop with two 670 DCUII's. I ordered the wrong size EK link for the GPU's, but that will be here tomorrow. Bummer because that's the only thing left to do here.

These pics are before I cinched everything up on the barbs. I'll get the compression fittings for everything once I go away from the AIO. I think the loop is really clean and the short runs along with the parallel water configuration for the GPU's should help the pump do it's job with a bit less restriction.

This pic with a mock up with the smaller block. I used it to align the fittings for the GPU's. It worked out good and allowed me to move forward enough on the planning.



Just zoomed out snap without the link as I need to keep that nice so I can sell it. I hate when people don't pull back on the pics so you can see that whole system.



Coming along! Sadly, I won't have time to finish it until the weekend as I have a project to start tomorrow. I'll post more if I can...

so I have a question for you guys. I have expanded my loop h220 and have been happy with performance. I have no issues when the tower is running (almost always 24/7) or if i have to restart. however, as of late if i leave my tower off for more than say about 45 min the pump does not start back up. have tested with multiple psu, and checked the pump cabling and all psu cabling for damage. none seen. i have had to tear down the loop twice. not really sure what got it to work again. i had torn down the loop to check for gunk, grim but none showed up in the filter


any ideas on whats causing this?

I am using the new blue hydrox for the loop, the loop has an EK 7970 lightning block, a swiftech mcr120-qp, and a mcres micro rev2 reservoir

How is the pump connected, is it straight to the mobo?

normally it is on a pwm splitter supplied by swiftech with the h220. however i set straight on the mobo as well. i tried removing the pin for speed from the mobo which sent the fans all to 100% on the splitter did not change status of pump from not pumping. swapped pwm splitter as i owned a second one, used in a non water cooled case. and tried it plugged into another mobo directly same issue. in each case it will still start back up unless left off longer than about 45 min. as mentioned above swapped psu and on the modular psu swapped molex cable


main mobo is a gigabyte - ga-z77x-ud5h, alternat mobo was a MSI Z77MA-g45.

Sounds to me like a BIOS issue, in which the CPU fan is only activated at a certain temperature. So after 45 min. everything would be cold, so the pump wouldn't be activated until it warms up. Possibility?
