Temps are 16C-20C better then my EVO at load.

If you're using the splitter the way we suggest then the speed that you're reading isn't the speed of your fans. You're reading the speed of your pump. When using our splitter with your pump in channel one and the fans in the other channels, everything is controlled as a percentage from 0 to 100%. The only speed that you'll be able to read though is the speed of your pump.

Helix 120 PWM-33 DBA / Enermax Cluster-14 dBA, at least that's what they claim!
Mind you, I don't know if the Clusters will make any difference in cooling. There mostly for bling!biggrin.gif

When the difference between two noise levels is 10 dB(A) or more, the amount to be added to the higher noise level is zero. In such cases, no adjustment factor is needed because adding in the contribution of the lower in the total noise level makes no perceptible difference in what people can hear or measure. For example if your workplace noise level is 95 dB(A) and you add another machine that produces 85 dB(A) noise, the workplace noise level will still be 95dB(A).

No, I'm just saying that all else being equal, two fans will be quieter than four of the SAME fans.

Just wanted to post my experience I have had with my H220 so far. I have owned the H60/H80/H100/H100i/ Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme and finally the Swiftech H220. At first I wasnt very impressed with my temps. I run FireStrike Extreme at 5.14GHz @ 1.6v as my bench test and I do the same test with the H100i and Water 2.0 Ex. I use SP120s pushing and Notuas NF-F12s pulling (getting 2 more Noctuas or SP120s not sure yet) Anyway I would get 80C on the hottest core with the Water 2.0 no matter how many times I ran the bench so I know this is a solid number. I am not including the H100i as its not in the same class as the Watre 2.0 Ex or H220. The H220 was setup like this:


I was getting 86C-87C on the hottest core running the test multiple times. After two days of just saying screw it I went to put my Water 2.0 back on and discovered what is circled in red on the above picture. The plastic barb was sitting on top on the heatsink not allowing the waterblock to sit flush on the CPU. So I reseated the H220 like this:



I retested and now my temps are 76C on the hottest core. So if you have an ASRock Extreme9 Z77, you know how to install the H220.

I'm surprised the heatsink gets hot enough to increase temps that much, 10C just from the tube touching. For sure will have to double check every time I mount to make sure I'm not touching any heatsinks.

Gotch ya. This is true, but even when we're talking about identical fans, it's only going to be about 3db louder.

Well it wasnt from touching, I didnt make myself very clear, The plastic barb was resting on the heatsink making it not sit flush on top of the actual processor. Flipping it allows it to actually be 100% flush. That should make more sense now. Thanks for commenting since I flubbed the original post BTW. I will edit it.

Ah, that seems much more reasonable. I was like 10C from a heatsink on your mobo? blinksmiley.gif

The "growing pains" are really not severe, after all we thoroughly tested all these units.. it's the few we missed that require full investigation. Each failed unit is sent to our lead engineer for complete analysis, and from this, we implement revisions in assembly or QC to lock on the zero defect target. We'll get it done!

On the upcoming H320 I presume you will be starting out with the new SATA splitters.

Speaking of the H320. Do we have an ETA in it? Gotta see how long I have to wait to sell my H220.
