I'm lazy and just today mounted the H220 I received from an RMA almost 2 months ago. All is well so far, pump is a bit noisier than the first unit, temps are also much higher, breaking 90c in P95 blend after less than 30 seconds. i5 3570k 4.4 Ghz - 1.190 Vcore

Sounds like an air bubble or mis mount.

Mount feels solid, but paste may have gotten moved around while adjusting the back plate. I plan to remount it tomorrow, and I hear none of the noises associated with an air bubble.

Sounds like you have the water block not mounted solidly and that you have not applied the tim properly. I suggest you unscrew the block pull it up and see whether the tim is distributed properly. If not clean off all the old tim with solution until the nickel covered cpu is eextremely clean and the water block copper is shiny. Then reapply tim. Makes sure when you install the block again that it is seated properly.

Reapplied paste and did 2 more mountings, used the provided TIM and AS5.

Hi Guys,

I just received my H220 yesterday and installed it earlier today. Its much better but I definitely hear a waterfall sound effect when the pump is on full speed. biggrin.gif

BTW, whats the best pump orientation for the H220? Just wondering rolleyes.gif

hello, i installed the swiftech apogee drive 2 with the packed mcp350x and 2 rads (120 alphacool and swiftech mqpres 220 with integrated rad, swiftech microress and all) it is basically teh h320.
now my question is since im a complete noob, does the apogee drive have to have both the moelx and 4 pin connected respectively to the psu and cpu fan, or just the 4 pin for pwm capability?
i tried both and with cpu fan only, but the temp in the bios were getting 55c so i turned it off and attached the molex as well and all seem fine, except the pump is a bit noisy.
Is there any way or app that i can use to lower the pump speed to the lowest possible setting because now its sitting at 2000 rpm (bios says that). The pump is the only thing i can hear, i made liquid cooling and not it is more noisy than my ald archon...not much, but more. Temps are great tough. 27c on cpu (4770k stock for now) and 27c gpu (gtx 770 with universal core lt block).

Both the molex and the fan header need to be plugged with the APD2. If you're getting a bit of noose at 2000 RPM, 99% of the time it's a pesky air bubble. In the 1st post on page 1 of this thread, there are instructions on how to remove air bubbles from an H220- these are also applicable in your case.

probably have air in the pump impeller area. I see in the picture you have the reservoir cap on the radiator pointing down. Flip it so it's pointing up, that might eventually fix your waterfall sound over time.

There is no best orientation for the h220 pump.
