My question is ... do you think there will be no problem with that? I mean, will the pump handle the flow for the 280mm rad and the rest of the blocks? And how about cooling liquid ... is it needed to had a reservoir or can i just leave how it is?

Btw, this will be my first WC build, is there any place where you can "learn" how to had new radiators to a H320 or H220 system?

Thanks
Pedro

h320 pump can handle your additional 280mm rad and you can just leave it how it is. check this vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZgctchIQ7M h220 and h320 have the same pump

and this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fpum4J6C2k will also help you learn to expand.

I will let you guys know within the next few weeks if a h220+Alphacool xt45 single 140mm can cool a 3930k and 290x! Will be interesting and I am very excited staring at all this water cooling gear thumb.gif I am interested to hear this 140mm helix fan.. I hope its quiet and performs well!

Just waiting for the block....

I've got 3 of the Helix 140mm fans in my case and one of them is on my back radiator. They are very quiet and move tons of air. They're the best 140mm fans that I've ever used.

No CM reps in the thread? I asked something a few posts back.

He's lurking around here somewhere. What was your question, maybe I can help.

Alright so after taking around 4-5 hours to get my loop setup again had a potential leak in the initial 30 minutes. I ran it for two hours after some tightening down on all points of possible failure and gave it another 2 hours today. Seems to doing fine and running the rig 100% now.

Haven't gotten my UV cathodes back in yet so no pictures of the loop (it's half done the way I want it to be) but here's the idle/underclocked temps, will get some load temps from BF4 and Arkham Origins tonight hopefully.

Was more warranty/support related. My unit was tested by a friend, who bought it in the US for me since you can't buy it locally AFAIK.
I'd like to know if they plan to sell or support them here in Argentina. Or if I have to ship them to the US.

Thanks!

Unfortunately I'm not certain how their support will work. I'd imagine though that since it was purchased in the US it will have to be sent here for servicing. That's normally how warranty support works for most companies. If you go back to when the Glacer was first launched you should be able to find a couple of posts by the CM rep. You can try sending him a PM to inquire about their warranty support directly that way.

One question,

it's ok to connect the spliter 4 pin cable to a fan controller instead of the PWM motherboard header in order for to control the speed, correct?

No. The reason why is that most fan controllers use voltage control rather than pulse width modulation to regulate the speeds of the devices that are connected to them. These pumps are designed for pulse width modulation (PWM) only. Connecting it to a voltage regulated fan controller can potentially damage the pump and cause it to fail prematurely. This is why it's recommended that if you don't use the PWM splitter that you connect the pump directly to your CPU fan header only. This is the only fan header on most motherboards that's guaranteed to use pulse width modulation.

Sorry, I think I read your question wrong. Connecting the splitter to a fan controller will not give you any speed control over the devices connected to the splitter. This is because as I stated above, most fan controllers use voltage regulation and this won't work with this PWM splitter. All of the device connected to the splitter in this way will just run at full speed.

Ohh... sorry. Just found the white paper about that smile.gif

So, if i want to control the fans, basically i connect the pump to the splitter and all the fans to the fan controller. On other hand, can i connect any non-PWM fans to the splitter without problems or ... i should only use the PWM ( sorry, i'm doing my first install, that's why so many doubts tongue.gif )
