Don't see how it could, they use completely different mounting hardware and the pump housing and barbs are not in any way the same.

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
The Crosshair V is the premium board in the AM3+ lineup. While expensive it is one of the favorite boards for FX 8 Core over clocking. There is no way this board should not have been included in testing. It is the star of the AM3+ boards is extremely well known and acclaimed. This was a serious oversight by Swiftech, you can't explain it away so simply.My professional did it with my assistance. It was installed in the top of my large super tower gaming case.I am not a acronym person I know not what a PITA means. No heat sinks or ram slots were interfered with. Once again does that have any significance for an H220 installation? I need a straight up answer. If I can't get one I'm searching for a custom water loop whose AMD bracket has no issues with the Crosshair V motherboard installation.

Pita means pain in the a$$. Why are you searching for a custom water loop if you don't plan on refilling? It sounds like this product just isn't for you, so just wait until Corsair releases an H150 or the like. This product is no different than the hundreds of others out there that just don't work for all applications. How many air coolers can't use the closest ram slots or don't work with certain heatsinks? So far there are two solutions listed. If you don't like those, then just find something else and be done.

You also have to remember that this product wasn't designed and r&d'd just for this use. The waterblock/pump combination are both designed as separate parts, and this was the working solution of a combination of them both. Swiftech may have not mentioned it yet, I believe strongly that they designed this pump to be a future DDC replacement, so they can't design it solely for the use of this product.

I do not own a die grinder, do not have a workshop and am not going to purchase a setup for such a purpose when I have neither space or money to blow through my nose. Any other useful suggestions?

Low-number grit sandpaper would work fine as well for $3 or less

Who are you to tell me to stick with Corsair? They make garbage and noisy garbage at that. If I can't get a quality AIO loop that fits my setup I will be forced to move to a custom loop. My temps are just too high to accept on my particular FX-8350. That is precisely why I wanted an H 320. I will speak to my installation guy and lay out the bracket issue . Possibly he can get the bracket filed down by a friend.

Thank you. I'll give it a whirl. Hopefully that sanding will be a 5 to 10 minute job. I appreciate you sticking with me on this issue so I can get a solution that is practical for my situation. I used to do all my installations until a year and 9 months ago when I had a massive heart attack. Can chalk that one up to my bosses who are dogs. I had to retire some 10 months ago.

Sorry man, I wasn't seriously stating for you to stick with Corsair. It was a figure of speech. It seems we're both agitated at the moment. I don't know what you are on edge about, but I'm on edge from spending all afternoon unsuccessfully trying to repair a broken 50 yr old truck instead of working on my current project which is what I wanted to do. So I think it'd be best if we continue this conversation another time. On that note though,80 grit sandpaper backed with a hard surface and just couple minutes of sanding should do the trick just fine thumb.gif.
