post #6531 of 20728
Mega man did my H320 installationyesterday. In a post to you on the FX owners club I mentioned a memory issue because I couldn't use the 2 black slots. Well I reversed the memory in the 2 red slots and the second dimm was counted. Very finicky .

Now for my installation issues. Aside from the tubing and barb blocking the rear slot, the the AMD bracket puts a lot of pressure against the rear vrms. It is more than merely touching as Bond32 described it in describing his own installation. My temperatures under stress under not good 69 Celcius for Prime95 blend. I think peraps thar corner of the bracket thatpushes against the vrms may not be 100% flush against the cpu. If that is the case the only way to resolve it is by grinding down thatpart of the bracket. Of course I do not have a workshop or tools for that job. I am not overclocking now , even at stock with prime95 running I get 69 under full load and occasionally the pc will just shut off while running it. I have the pump hooked up to channel 1 and the 3 fans on the remaining channels..

Also, what would be the best 4 fans to pair with it for push pull? And can I hook 4 fans to the included controller that comes with the H220?

Been running 2 since Day 1 release. I don't run the pumps at full, I have a correct air capture with the reservoir and I am very satisfied with both of the loops I built.

The failure rate is VERY low, the impeller would be redesigned if they noticed a trend with that being a point of failure, it doesn't indicate at all that there is a high failure rate.

And speaking of pump noise, mine is acting up again.. an audible clicking sound.. this is how it sounded before it got pretty loud and I had to return the unit. This is such a waste of time and money.

Anecdotal evidence at its very worst. There is nothing to prove / disprove Swiftech has been incredibly forward with the results of this product, mostly because its been a huge hit for them and we have a large portion of users who are very happy with it.

Any failure is a waste of time and money, but considering the failures seem to have this odd tendency of happening multiple times to the same people, I am far more inclined to believe user error or configuration error, then the H220 being a faulty design. The product IS sensitive, if there had to be something to pick for swiftech to improve on this product, it would be to make it more robust electronically.

Also, I seem to remember them being so popular no one could ever get ahold of one and they always sold out. To me that would mean there are a large number of h220s out there that people have no problems with.

After all, there are only 650 pages posts in this thread, and the number of posts with complaints is just a fraction of that number. In fact, BramSli has posted a little over 500 times himself and I know not all of those posts were about setting up rmas.

People just need to sit back and think about the bigger picture.

yes you can. but.... see my above reply
if you think 3% is high..... wow .... i would hate to know what you think low is ....

The mounting brackets,especially for AMD, could be greatly improved, they are much more kludgy to deal with than the Corsair brackets. It would behoove Swiftech to do a redesign of them. Other than that I have no other complaint at this early stage of the game

When you say you have a correct air capture with the reservoir, does that mean you did some modification ?

I think he means he has the reservoir pointed upward, and possibly topped off.
By the way, you can get some 80 grit aluminum oxide sandpaper at Walmart for about $4, use a small piece of it and sand a divit into the VRM heatsink, and then wipe it down good and brush it with some black touch up paint to give you more clearance there and better seat your block.

Pushing the H220 rad to the limit for testing temps and new GPU for SLI to Tri-SLI.

I'll report back. Just for fun. >smile.gif

Ha... It's just leaning on it. It's pulling air through the GPU set because I only have that 240 rad doing all the work.

The rad fans are pushing air towards the GPU'S.
