Bram's response is valid.

Thanks for that. Every now and then I actually know what I'm talking about. tongue.gif

I want to thank you again . The phone conversation clarified my understanding of what you said in your forum response.My tech is arriving in an hour to complete the installation.

Sounds good. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

So it appears the pump on my release day h220 had its journey cut out a little short, and decided to die this morning while doing some stability testing. I could make several guesses on why it happened, but mechanical parts are prone to failure, it is what it is. Already had a call with Swiftech and sent in my email for RMA, and should be getting it sorted quickly, which is the main reason I went with Swiftech. Best customer I've ever had to deal with.

Thinking about it I wonder if its a mechanical failure at all, as my motherboard wasn't reading that a CPU fan was hooked up at all, and I know the header isn't bad(another fan works just fine). I wonder if it was problems on the electrical side. Meh, this isn't my area of expertise, I'll let the smart ones think about what went wrong. smile.gif

I'm very sorry that you had an issue with this pump. I'm the guy you spoke with over the phone and once I get the additional information that I requested from you, I'll issue you an RMA number and give you instructions on how to get the kit replaced.

What speed do you guys run your pumps at for idle and load?

ok finally i did it, what a mess with swiftech products in europe, BramSLI1 make something! biggrin.gif
i know this isnt the right place to post, but im glad i went for the following from h220 :
apogee drive 2 with mcp 35x
and a rad with integrated res (but the older version , Swiftech MCR220Q PRES could't find basically in no place the newer one , at least in the whole european market).
just 1 question, once the loop is done and closed, do i have to keep the rad on top to be sure the pump will never run dry? or shouldn't matter as soon as it is closed?

p.s. i want to tank the support i got from the whole guys in the thread here, really appreciate.
t.h.a.n.k. y.o.u

Once it's closed it really doesn't matter. Just remember thought that when evaporation starts to occur you'll need to top off the radiator to keep bubbles from getting into the pump. The 35X will sometimes have the same issues with bubbles that the H220 does. This is actually common of just about any water cooling pump. With the pump located in the highest part of the loop, this is where air will rise to.

allright thank you. Im probably switching case to accomodate the rads in a better position (i currently have a cm 692 and i'm watching at the fractal arc midi r2).
Btw bram is there any place in europe that you know that sell the newer 240 rad with the integrated reservoir?

Hey all, recently I added a Heatkiller Universal VGA block and an EX240 to my loop. I'm not really impressed with the temps, although they are acceptable.

The loop cools a de-lidded 4770k @ 1.3V, and a 7970 also @ 1.3V.

IBT gets the CPU up past 70, and Heaven gets the GPU up to 62.

I'm using 4 AP-15's, pushing cool air in from the top and front rad. (Yes...DUST)

Are these temps normal? I expected a much higher temp drop on the cpu after adding the EX240. Temps are about the same even with the added rad.
