I was looking at rad pricing and Martin's tests and I have to +1 that... thumb.gif

Is it okay to mount the rad of the H320 with the fill port down? Thank you

its okay to have it facing down, you just have to check it more often since there is no mechanism when facing down for air bubble capturing after possible coolant evaporation

Also I would like to ask about fans. I have three Noctua NF-F12's and I would like to know:

1.should I replace the swiftech fans with the NF-F12's? YES/No
2.should I add the Noctua fans and go Push Pull? YES/No

if you have the fans laying around, sure the fans are great, if you are going to buy them, its really up to you to decide cost to benefit. as for the second question, the H220/H320 are low fin per inch radiators, so it doesn't take much of a fan to work the radiator. setting up the radiator in push/pull config will only get subtle gains vs push only or pull only. cost to benefit wise, you'd probably see a better temperature adding a new single radiator to the loop vs adding 2 more NF-F12s

Any plans on releasing thicker rads (45mm+) in the near/distant future Bryan? If you can't talk about it I understand thumb.gif

No, we don't have any plans that I'm aware of to release thicker radiators. Our own testing and Martin's of martinsliquidlab has shown that for the amount of money that they cost, it just isn't very cost effective. We try to provide our customers with the best performance to cost ratio with our products.
ill +1 that, but you have to admit, they just look awesome/sexay. only thing i dont like about swiftech rads is the bass chambers and the thing i like about alphacool is the screw stops.

do i need it no.

but i do have a setup i will be going 100% swiftech... probably will be expanding my htpc ( not going for a small build, i like large cases ) with my h220! ( already have all parts swiftech 360 swiftech 220 + h220 )

2.should I add the Noctua fans and go Push Pull? YES/No

Personally, I just replaced the two included swiftech fans with 4x Noctua NF-F12s and I saw a relatively dramatic change in performance.

Whereas previously I would hit mid 70s in Prime95 in only 5-6 minutes, now with the four noctua fans running at full 'reduced' speed (using the 1200 RPM adapters), and the pump at 2K RPM, I maintained mid 60s even to 25-30 minutes of prime95 small FFTs. This is with a 6 core 3930K.

So while the performance may not be hugely different, I found that the noise performance of the NF-F12s is supremely better, and offers the advantage of being able to be ran at a lower top speed since the greater static pressure generated by the additional two fans overcomes any losses.

Just my 2cp

I love Swiftech rads and concur that performance isn't really there on thicker rads to justify the price difference. They do look awesome, though. I only have 2 grevences with Swiftech rads- they need a blacker black IMO and an XP variant of the 140 rads, though admittedly 140 hasn't really taken off yet the way we'd expect it to. I've done 2 loops with all Swiftech, but this time I went with a crazy high fpi 280 rad (30 fpi Black Ice Stealth) and Akasa Viper fans for crazy performance, since I'm watercooling 3 hot cores (4770K and 7990) for extra brawn, not noise.

Has anyone else noticed that their H320/H220 pump speed is not modulated correctly via PWM when using an ASUS mobo and AI Suite II? For me I am not able to set a "fan curve" for the pump based off of temp (in Smart Mode). The pump always runs at 100% even though my fan curve is saying it should only be running 53%. If I try to use RPM fixed mode and then set 1350RPM the pump reports 0 RPM then a climb to max RPM and then 0 again. It takes anywhere from 12-20 seconds to complete one of these cycles.

What fan header are you using and what temperatures are you getting? This will let me know what your issue might be.
