Later H220s and all H320s have a SATA powered PWM splitter, which is the recommended power supply of the unit. However, the pumps themselves just have the PWM splitter.

The reason the 240L is different is because the pump uses much more watts at 3500 rpm than 3000, so its even less viable to run the pump solely through the CPU header.

Today I made some kind of troturial - how to remove air from the pump. I hope it can be useful. For me this way works great.

It's quite long but I was making everything step by step. Hope it will be useful.

Although, the Swiftech reps will be able to elaborate much more than I can. I've had my kit for about a month, and the pump has been absolutely silent from the start - not one bit of trouble with it.

2. Some do, some don't. Personally, I ran it for about a day before I installed because it just made more sense to me to check it ahead of time in case there were issues. I got a SATA to AC power adapter, so I can just plug it into the wall and run it easily. If you got an extra SATA cable on your PSU that can reach, that will work just fine.

3. I didn't have any problems with air bubbles. However, when testing it I did make a point of trying to keep the radiator above the pump (particularly when it was running) to keep the pump primed. I've also been told that it's advisable to keep the fill port be kept pointing up if you mount the radiator on the top panel of the case as this helps trap any extra air in the loop.

4. The only thing I can think of is read up on the installation (granted, it's quite straight forward) and take your time fitting everything together. This is a great kit to start with! thumb.gif

Thanks francisw19 for your reply. Will place the order tonight, hopefully won't be disappointed with it.
Anyone have any more feedback?

Honestly? H220/320 maybe has sometimes some issues but thanks God the support from Swiftech is awesome. I prefer to have such a device and know that always I can count on company support then have other device and fighting with RMA division for months to replace broken stuff. It's a really big deal In present times when all big companies want to screw You during RMA. Swiftech don't.

Take Swiftech. I the case of problems Bram will help You (he is really trying) to who I have great respect. In my opinion Swiftech is the great option on the market.

Amazing video! A bit long, but very easy to follow. Thank you for posting this. thumb.gif

Thanks man,
I really didn't feel it's so long when I was recording it. I noticed it when I check a file, but You know how I love to talk biggrin.gif I think that this movie includes most of information and solutions which we discussed during putting my loop together tongue.gif

This helps a lot. I was little skeptical of taking my pump apart.

Thanks Lord Nikkon thumb.gif

EDIT: I noticed in your video you're talking about the orientation of the pump. Due to heatsink placement on mobo, I have to install the cpu block sideway rather than the way you demonstrate in the video. Hopefully that doesn't cause air bubbles for me.

From looking at the video I don't see anything in it that would void the warranty on this pump either. I haven't been able to officially confirm that yet, but I'll try and have an answer on that shortly.

I haven't taken it apart yet, I'll wait for your confirmation on whether it voids it or not.

Orientation of the pump in the socket is not so important. Important is how u will put the pump during filling up the loop and removing "primal", big air bubbles. When You will put it in the socket, You must start pump with PC and setup PWM speed on 100%. Small air bubbles will mix with the water in the impeller compartment and go with water outside. If air will stuck in the water block section, than is no chance to remove it when whole pump will be in the socket.

If I can recommend you something.

I showed two ways how to solve problem with air. One (with opening whole pump) is a hard way, but If you worry to open the pump and lose a warranty, you can use second way, by filling up in- and outlet burbs by water. Usually it works, especially if You will keep the pump like I show on vid. Opening the pump is not difficult and if you will not use hammer nothing can be broke.

Here Bram must say what does he thinking about it and what is policy of Swiftech for such a "operations". In my opinion, taking of the copper block (for cleaning or filling up by water) shouldn't void a warranty. Opening a impeller section .... hmmm Hard to say. It's difficult to broke something, but everything can happen.
