I've just got mine installed, and anything below 1800rpm 35% power i hear a very loud ticking. Does the orientation of the pump/block matter. I Installed it sideways since it was gonna block one of my ram slots. I thought when using the included splitter i can lower power as much as i want since the splitter always provides whatever the pump needs. It confusing me that changing the power is making the pump sound differently?

Looking awesome tho:

Great looking rig! Did you plug the pump into the splitter? The ticking at low rpms to me sounds like possible voltage modulation, which is not compatible with the H220 and can ruin the pump.

I was just watching the HitTech Legion YouTube video of the Glacer 240L and he states that it comes with the 8-way PWM splitter. Can anyone confirm this is true? I thought this is one of the items missing in the Cooler Master product. Thanks.

Yes i have the pump plugged into the header labeled cpu fan on the splitter. Might be worth noting i have the pump, 3 stock fans on the rad, as well as 3 be quite 140mm case fans all into the splitter.

I was adjusting the power using the MSI control center which gives me custom fan curves.

The review is INCORRECT, that item is NOT included.

It is very useful, though! thumb.gif




Thanks - T

That's what I thought but hoped not true. I guess I'll have to find it somewhere else.

All over, my man!

I don't want to say I can't remember because I can't, but I got mine at either FCPU or PPCS.
I order so much from both that I have no clue who to contact about returns / RMAs any given day...

It will really work well, and even with the issue they are saying will pop up with that 5th Corsair fan, I've got 4 SP120-HP's on mine and it's purring away, no issues at all!



Thanks - T

Good to know. I was planning on using 4 SP120 PWM HP fans if they will fit in my case (Fractal Arc Midi).

I see. That is odd then.

I've worked with our engineer here to determine the source of the issues with using Corsair fans with our splitter. It turns out that it's due to the way the IC has been designed in Corsair's fans. Their fans require a much stronger pulse current to adjust speed that's set by the motherboard. Due to this, if you use more than 4 of their fans on the splitter they can't read the pulse current and thus run at full speed.

Our fans were designed to run with a much weaker pulse current so that you're able to run 8 of them off of the same motherboard header. This apparently wasn't part of Corsair's design for their fans. The issue therefore isn't our splitter. It's the fans that you intend to use with it. We assumed that other PWM fan manufacturers would follow the same specifications so that up to 8 of their fans would run off of a single header. This obviously isn't the case.

We would actually have to put a signal booster on the PCB to make it compatible with other brands of PWM fans. This wasn't part of our design and so far it isn't something we're planning on doing. I hope this helps to clear up this issue.
