Having never done a water cooling system other than a H50 (which doesn't really count) I'm interested to know how easy this would be to upgrade tubing, coolant colour and extra rads. I'm thinking of getting a Define R4 but would like to add a waterblock to my GPU in the future (plan to upgrade to maxwell when they come out). I would like to change the tubing to clear and have blue coolant running through it and add the gpu block, maybe adding in a single 120 rad on the back of the case?

Ideas / thoughts welcome.
Check out Swiftech's Youtube video detailing the process of adding a GPU block. It's not that difficult.

I have the Fractal R4 and while the H220 is doable, it's awfully tight and with some (most?) mobos you will have to mount the fans below the radiator. In that config the reservoir is upside down so not really doing its job. I haven't had a problem, but some people have reported persistent gurgling noises when the rad is mounted upside down. You might consider the Midi R2 instead, as it's designed more with water cooling in mind.

Here is what mine sounds like:

Just tried this. Pump to CPU FAN 4 pin directly. Still not hearing/feeling anything. Temps on their way up to 70c again where I will stop it. (at 66c as I type this)

Dangit. Looks like my pump is DOA. Glad this is Swiftech, since I know they will take care of this quickly.

We're going to RMA this for you. I think I got your email this morning. Hope to hear back from you soon so that we can get you taken care of as quickly as possible. I'm sorry for the issue that this caused you. Please re-install your original heat sink before turning your system back on.

Thanks for the heads up. I ordered the H220 from Jab-tech and used the promo code Facebook to save 7$.

Yep, got your email. As expected, excellent customer service from Swiftech. I just called in with my CC for cross ship and forwarded my invoice so you should have that too now. Can't wait to get my replacement so I can see what this thing can really do. Thanks a TON! It is so rare to have a company engage the consumer like you guys do as well as provide top notch customer service. Stuff happens with products and though it kinda sucks when you are doing a new build like I am, it is no big deal when it is handled like you guys do it.

Yep, Bryan (BramSLI1) has been helping me pick out the components for expanding the H220 with an extra rad, gpu block, and changing the tubing. I am not sure there is another company on this site that is so active in helping members.

On my H220 pump I can hear intermittent gurgling (sounds like a "squirt" once a minute, not very noticeable) when I am stress testing with pump above 2200rpm. At 2200 rpm it is not frequent at all (1x every 5 min) where as at 3k rpm it does it about once every 50 seconds or so. At idle it does not occur, even with pump at 3k rpm (although I have heard it once or twice).
Can not hear it under 2k rpm. It was installed two days ago and system was not moved since. I tilted the system a bit on all sides to try to get all the air to rise up to the res. Getting great temps however, I watched Prim95 temps closely while the gurgling happens and does not seem to impact them, although that's not a very scientific test lol.

The WC kit is running in optimal conditions, 24-26c ambient and CPU is kept under 75c at all times. No heavy tension on the tube.

The rad is set up in the top of my switch 810 with fans as intake (push) and the rad fillport facing up. Prefer using my AP-15's over the Helix fans which have a "roar" to them even at low rpm.

Should I be worried or is this normal?

Adan that won't work because the included short screws are fan screws, not M3s.

In this situation, I think what he did with the washers is the ideal solution, unless he finds some shorter M3s.

That gurgling sound is most likely due to some air still being trapped in the pump. It should go away after another day or two. You can try running the pump at full speed for about an hour. That should get rid of it. Keep me posted though if the sound doesn't go away in the next few days.
