its an issue with AMD boards. The ram and mosffets are too close to socket, which makes it a poor design. Standard brackets, with known issues. Yet many attempts to tell them to change and fix layout, yields stupidity with manufactures.
Same issue with many that I have bought and mounted AIO, like my Coolit and Aseteks. No issue with Intel.

I think Gabe has to get back to the drawing board and come up with a solution that is not bastardized. What troubles me in addition is there was no mention of this in the past 2 months threads as far as I know. I have read almost every post in the past 2 months .

From what I can tell, this problem seems to be specific to certain AMD boards. Intel boards that have issues with regards to ram slots have been able to rotate their pump/block in order to make it fit. This is the only board, so far, that it would appear has an issue with the surrounding heat sinks. I had asked this customer to attempt to remount their kit to see if it was possibly just mounted improperly. I never heard back from them. I was told then though that it's possible that a small number of AMD boards might have some issues, but like I said this is the only one that appeared to have issues with the surrounding heat sinks. I was never able to confirm that though.

Exactly.

How often will I need to drain and refill the loop after the initial loop expansion?

Under normal conditions you shouldn't have to refill the loop for the life of the product after you've expanded it. You might have to top it off though every one to two years. This is of course as long as you did the expansion correctly.

Excellent! Thank you.

Just install my H220,
Bottom mounted (push-pull) in my cm 690 II.

For now, as silent as my D14. The temps are quite lower than with my d14, over 10c at idle.

So to resume for compatibility sake:
CM 690 II bottom mounted in push-pull (you need to put fan at the bottom, the rad can't go at the bottom because the fitting hit the PSU cable on my ax760).
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 (no problem with heatsink, but might prevent the ram slot closest to the socket from being use).


Will post picture tomorrow.

The rotate trick works for everything but mITX boards as far as I have been able to tell. The best fit is the MSI Z77IA-E53. I had the Z77E-ITX but its pcie slot died and I picked the MSI up for now. It fits better than the asrock, regardless you need low profile ram for both boards.

Does the fact I had no issue with my Corsair H100 install have any relevance to the H220/H320 installation issues?

Did you install the H100 or did your professional install it? Because I installed my H80 (same bracketry as the H100) It was a PITA compared to installing the Apogee Drive II (same mounting hardware as H220) to my MVG. Although I do understand your concerns about this unit on certain AMD boards, you have to understand as well that a manufacturer can't test their product on every single board, and that without end-user correspondence, there's no way to know of problems on untested boards, and thus no way to fix the problems. On that note though, filing down one side of the bracket isn't a big deal at all, and doesn't require very much precision either. I've done such modifications in seconds with a die grinder tongue.gif
