The only thing putting me off adding more to the loop is the maintenance I assume I should do every year or so after I break the seal in a non-sterile environment.

they said it shouldnt need maintenance if unopened for the duration of the warranty (3 years). If it gurgles and bothers you, you might need to do that in 2.

Also will adding to this loop put more stress on the little pump and cause it to go out faster?

Thanks in advance biggrin.gif

These pumps are able to handle extra components added to the loop. Your EX280 radiator certainly won't be a problem.

I just wanted to give a positive shout out to BramSLI1 and Swiftech's customer service. I am impressed and will be using Swiftech parts whenever I can in the future. BramSLI1's follow up was outstanding. Thankfully everything seems to be working for me now, but the easy access to support is outstanding.

Also, I'll try to post a couple pictures later today. I'm running a Corsair 500r, Asrock z77 Extreme6, i7-3770k, Samsung memory, Sapphire 7970, SeaSonic X750, and of course a Swiftech H220.

Users with the Corsair C70 case and Sabertooth Z77 board will not be able to run push pull in the case. Hits the thermal armor and ram clips. Found out the hard way last night. Back to just a push set up.

@swiftech, Do we have any update on the tubing colors? Also I saw the question asked but haven't found an answer, How many bottles of PM2 is needed to refill the loop?

One is plenty for just the H220, but you may need a second one depending on how many blocks and rads you add. Just get 2 and call it good.

I know the feeling of having a poor processor. My 2600k maxes 4.4 GHz at 1.4 V. Granted, it's smaller size keeps my temperature way lower. I max at like 71 in a 12 hour prime95 run. It just refuses to go higher, and I'm not willing to go way over 1.4V just to get to 4.6.

If I can ever find a cheap 570 block I'll buy another rad and add my it into my h220, but I'm just not willing to spend 90 bucks on a block for a GPU that is only worth 175 bucks. I'll probably just wait for next gen cards to come out and buy a block for whichever team ends up having the better card.

Lol must be your motherboard, my 2600k is happily sitting at 4.9Ghz with stock voltage and even on air only maxes out at 65. biggrin.gif

I'll try to get answer on that shortly. So far the color that will be available first will be white.
