Basically what's getting in the way (for a push/pull config) would be the extended lip of the reservoir, the part that sticks up above the rad about 1/4" where the fill port is located.

Anyone using the same type of components?

I'm afraid that the memory will get in the way.

I have H320 on ASUS Z87-PLUS with two tall memory sticks in the default slots, no probs. Might be issue if you use all 4 slots, not sure.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 is similar, or NZXT H630 is another nice quiet option, if you don't mind it being huge. I have mine in an NZXT Switch 810.

yea does not help,. i dont know of anything that is extended over the fans, besides you dont need push pull, you would be lucky if it helps 1c deg

My experience with the H320 is by far the worst experience I have ever had with any computer product. Instructions are difficult to understand, the tubing gets tangled if you install it the way it appears to supposed to be installed, and the backplate is the worst design I've ever seen of a backplate, it's impossible to mount the CPU in it because of it's deisgn, it pops off whenever you start putting a screw into it.

Going to take this H320 out and put back in my Hyper 212, I've wasted enough time screwing around with this cooler already.

I agree, it took me one hour more or less to put install the 220. At the end the best method was to hold the blackplate with one hand and at the same time with the other try to screw the pump. Even when it has some stickers, the holes can move. A better system would be great for the future.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 1.

It has 52mm clearance between motherboard and radiator, and the G.Skill (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231528) heat spreaders are about 45mm from the motherboard, so they will not conflict with the radiator by any way.

http://www.nanoxia-world.com/product/1/1/Deep+Silence+1

Check it out, and see if it fits for yourcells taste.

Unless you are against opening the fill cap, run the unit with the fill cap oriented up until the noise goes away. Then crack open the cap and top it off with distilled. Tilt the rad sideways and back to get every last bit of air out and top off again. Do this by filling it up so it nearly overflows and it "bulges" due to water surface tension, tilt the radiator sideways in all directions to see if you can get a bubble to come out. Repeat until all you have left is water bulging out of the reservoir. Then close it, making sure to catch any extra water.

shake it. If you don't hear any noise then you should be able to run it with the cap down.

I have it running cap side down I just need to top it off every 4 to 6 no depending on evap rates

Seeing threads like " MY PUMP DIED AGAIN " on the swiftech forum keeps making me hesitant. And it has caused me to never fully submit my order but i constantly find it in my shopping cart.

I do notice that the product support seems to be top notch tho.

Heres the thing, I use my PC allot and I just dont want down times and lengthy RMA procedures, and shipping costs. ect. ect. And most importantly I dont want to regret the buy.

Id like to get a H320 and i plan to use it stock and unmodified for its life. Am i crazy to expect a maintenance free unit for the duration of its warranty? Or am i just dreaming? Is this possible with this unit? IS there anything I should be aware of this unit that isnt said on the website? Id really like to be able to just put it in my system and forget about it.

My current H100 has done me well over the last 2 years and havent had any issues. Can I expect the same from this product?

Can anyone say its been in their system untouched for as long as these things have been out? I realize that support forums generally are people with issues seeking help and usually definitely out number people that come to just say nice things about a product. So I thought the best place to ask would be the Owners Thread here smile.gif

Thanks for any feed back

I'm afraid that the memory will get in the way.

I see videos on youtube that say that I can offset the radiator a bit if installed it at the top of the R4. However, I'm concerned that this would negate the silent feature of the case (as there would be space left over).

Would I have to order sleeves to get the 8 pin connector on the Asus Z87-Plus?

Any other recommendations on a great silent case like the R4 for this build?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thank in advance.
I am currently in the process of assembling the R4. Just some warning if you are thinking about a 280mm in front. Even with the hard drive cages removed, it is really really tight. Make sure you can find a 280 radiator that isn't that tall. I did not have a fun time getting mine in.

I could give you an update when I mount my top radiator probably later today. I have a ST30 240mm with 25mm fans. I did the measurements and felt pretty confident I could fit it, but I'll see how it will fit in practice. My rig is in my sig.

With any midtower case, you'll likely need to offset the top rad (leaving open space). The Nanoxia's Chimney will conceal it, but I doubt it will muffle the noise much if you have a large amount of noise in the case.

Thanks for the reply. I had done most of what you said already and I just can't seem to get rid of the flow-noise when in the upside down (or any other) orientation. I've ran it with the cap off and it still didn't require a top-off as it was basically near-overflowing already, even after hours of running without the cap. Adding more distilled would've just caused it to spill out when closing the cap. I also tilted side-to-side with the cap off and that didn't seem to help with the noise when upside down.

It's frustrating because in the upright position it's perfectly acceptable in terms of noise and there is no air trapped as far as I can tell. The second I move it from any position other than perfectly flat with the fill-port facing up, it starts making very loud flow-noises -- even if sideways, vertical etc.. there's only one way this thing will stay quiet -- perfectly flat w/ fill-port up.

Is yours running silent with no noises while upside down?

Thanks for the reply. I had done most of what you said already and I just can't seem to get rid of the flow-noise when in the upside down (or any other) orientation. I've ran it with the cap off and it still didn't require a top-off as it was basically near-overflowing already, even after hours of running without the cap. Adding more distilled would've just caused it to spill out when closing the cap. I also tilted side-to-side with the cap off and that didn't seem to help with the noise when upside down.

It's frustrating because in the upright position it's perfectly acceptable in terms of noise and there is no air trapped as far as I can tell. The second I move it from any position other than perfectly flat with the fill-port facing up, it starts making very loud flow-noises -- even if sideways, vertical etc.. there's only one way this thing will stay quiet -- perfectly flat w/ fill-port up.

Is yours running silent with no noises while upside down?

its tricky, i'll agree. Took me a while to get all the bubbles out. I think it's actually more effective with it installed when you bleed, because you can vary the speeds with fan control which helps dislodge air. Also with a hot CPU running prime95 i was able to manipulate the heat to help get air out.

oldish Video of my rig:

it's not running full speed, but at full speed it's also free of water noise. I'm also using the original impeller design.

I could make another video with my method of bleeding my system. it's kind of a tedious process but luckily i only have to do it only a few times a year.
