But it is a fair bit louder than my 3 Scythe GT's at 1150rpm for sure, those fans are a whisper in comparison. Is the difference with the H220 pump being on the block, over built into the rad that big? Acoustics wise? If it's possible to get the noise of the pump below the sound of quiet fans i would find it acceptable, but left at full speed it is a bit annoying.

I'd be more inclined to believe Linus when he says it's quiet @ low rpm on the h220, and loud left untouched. But what kind of noise do they produce at low rpm's? I hate anything that has whine or high pitched noise to it. This is why i got the Scythe GT fans, they really are quiet and have a nice tone to them. But this pump @ full speed, irritating is the only word i can use to describe it. Watercooling is supposed to be really quiet with nice performance if that's what someone chooses, but it can't be with this pump at full whack at least.

Also i noticed Linus left out pump speeds with the H220 in his final results for some reason.

When i start building a new computer i'll probably get a different cooler to this 320 Drive i have now, it's currently attached to the back of my case, i'll probably look into the H320 or something. Something that is quieter and can be installed inside the case at least.

Please go back and read my post. I already gave you the solution to quiet down your pump. What part did you not understand, maybe I can help?
"3 pin = fan controller
pwm = motherboard
molex = make a male molex to male 3 pin and hook it up to a fan controller
sata = make a male sata to male 3 pin and hook it up to a fan controller

there's always a way..."

You can control the rpm of any watercooling pump using the above solutions

As for the other info you requested,
H220 pump:
min speed: 1500rpm
max speed: 3000rpm
extremely quiet
difference between 20% (1500 rpm) and 100% (3000 rpm) is 2c at max load. At 1500 rpm it's inaudible unless I put my ear physically next to it. At 3000rpm I can hear it, but it's not loud. At 2000 RPM my low speed fans drown out the pump sound

I already did my leak testing on my hybrid 240L / custom loop setup last night, and everything's fine!
Pumps like a dream, and since that's the only component I'm using, I'll report back with a final pic and a report...
...When the bloody thing boots...
I have other problems, obviously!



Thanks - T

I had to rotate my case back to the original position to keep the reservoir over the cpu block.
I can't mount it the way it is advised in my CM 690 II (top spot, only takes the rad with the reservoir pointing to the board and closer to the 5.25 bay and I need it to be closer to the rear exhaust fan port to effectively be higher than the pump when my case is rotated).

Any ideas?



That was my previous orientation and res positioning...

Is the H20-X20 Elite likely to be more quiet than the H20-X20 Edge?

They both use the same PWM controlled pump and from my experience produce about the same amount of noise.

Just how far can you expand a H220/G240L? CF5FZ with a pair of 7950's. I'm considering 2 gpu blocks and a chipset block, all from EK Add a single 120.1 rad. Is this feasible? If so, would a reservoir be advisable? thx

I'll let a Swiftech guy speak to the length of that loop, but those parts, even when adding a 120.1 radiator, will be too much for the radiator space you are speaking of.
I'm assuming you're overclocking, given you're here. thumb.gif

I think that would be right around the limits. At that point, I'd say the 240L at max would be fine, the H220/320 may have trouble.

Man I love this h220.... Thanks Swiftech for getting it right this time! Reporting back about a week since iv expanded the loop and its still behaving admirably no problems with air bubbles or nasty noises thumb.gif

On the subject of what the h220 can handle or not.. Is it a bad idea to add a pump/res combo to the h220 loop? If i was to say add more components and rads would this help/hurt or be totally useless? Would it need to be the exact same pump or something similar.. Thanks for help here guys.

If you're planning to do any heavy overclocking I would consider adding an additional radiator. An additional 120.2 rad would actually be best if you can fit in your case.

Adding an additional pump/res wouldn't be an issue. It also doesn't matter if it's a different pump. It will just add to the flow and head pressure of the loop. Redundancy will also be an added benefit because if one pump dies the other will be able to take over and keep the coolant moving.
