keen to top up myself but im afraid opening the vent will introduce air as my unit is working perfectly quiet at the moment.

golden rule of everything

if its working dont touch it

So I've got the included PWM splitter running to the CPU_FAN header, and the pump connected to CH1 and I am still not getting an RPM reading form the pump nor are the fans modulating their speed. They seem to be running at 100%. I'm beginning to feel like either my motherboard is having issues or the PWM splitter is busted.

The weird thing is that it doesn't sound like the pump is running at 100% yet it seems to rev up when I put load on the CPU. I'm about to just move the pump to CPU_FAN and the radiator fans to CPU_OPT since I don't mind them running at 100%.

Maybe the splitter isn't wired correctly?
If you attach a pwm fan to cpu_fan does it function correctly? Or if you attach a 3 pin to it does it run full speed?

How could I check that?

EDIT - Also anyone have any suggestions on some good LED lights? My case looks a bit depressing when I look in the window since its all dark.

That's what I'm thinking. PM me and I'll give you instructions on how to get it replaced.

I wanted this as well and I found that all those LED strips for PC usage, like the Bitfenix Alchemy and NZXT LED sleeve are huuuuuuugely overpriced..

I bought 4x 50CM of Blue SMD LED strip (120 LED's per meter, 12v, cuttable every 3 LED's, self-adhesive backside) for €3.95 each and soldered a buncha female Molex's to them from old fan splitters and some speaker wire. Works perfectly fine and it's SO bright my entire room lights up blue tongue.gif

So, if you know how to solder (i'm educated in electronics so..) then i'd suggest building some yourself from some random 12v strips.

EDIT: Have a look here. I'm not from the US but this seems like a proper store with a good assortment.

http://usledsupply.com/shop/led-rope-lights/single-color-flex-strips.html

They sell strips at $6.00 per foot. Little more expensive then I had here but still, MICH cheaper then the $30+ for the Bitfenix / NZXT which has less LED's per foot to begin with.

These are what I recently bought:

You can get them here.
On the vengeance c70 thread on post 4672 Buehlar shows them off pretty good. He recommended them. You might have seen them in his mod of the month entry last month.
I havent gotten it installed yet but it's nice that they don't take up a bay. I have two nzxt hue kits, one installed and one I was going to use until I got the ones Buehlar recommended. They are twice the length of the hue ones also.
Plus they are only like $20.

Here are some pics of my splitter. I sadly havent had time to install my h220 so it is unused but as long as mine is right you can
see if yours matches.


Sorry for the crappy cell pics but hopefully they will help!

Awesome. And yep, it looks like the wiring is off (I think). I think the two wires running into the 4-pin connector are on the far right as opposed to the far left in your picture. I appreciate you taking the time toi snap the pictures and provide a recommendation on LED lights to use.

Build in my H320 last night, and i'm pretty happy with the results after some testing.
Big temp drops coming from a H80.
My 4770k was doing 4.2 on 1.23v with max temps of 82c on the H80
Now it's on 4.5 with 1.275 with max temps of 70c so gotta love it.
No problems installing or strange sounds coming from the pump.
I did find a pack of gummi bears in the box upon opening but it was past it's expiration date tongue.gif
