What is up with all this quality issues just after 3 months of use?

i think my fault was the mobo reading the pump wrong, i refitted the block and it worked, i will be running it for 24 hours just to make sure

Anyone know where I can get replacement LGA1150 mounting screws for the pump/block? Mine are stripped and I need a new set for my next build.

I came home last night to my computer shut off. Didn't remember shutting it off so it was a surprise to me. I turn it back on and realized it's running kinda slow. I look over at my temps and each core is at 100c and my cpu is downclocked 2ghz. So I go to feel the tubing on my H220 and it's not warm at all so I'm hoping it's just reading it wrong. Then the computer shuts off by itself. I go to feel the bottom part of the cpu block/pump and it's burning hot. Turns out the pump died on me. Sucks this happened, I just got my H220 working properly after having troubles with air bubbles. I'm lucky my cpu didn't burn out or something. Looks like it's time for RMA.

all cpus in modern times have a thermal max that they shut down on, which should not hurt them if it is only done once or twice,

Yeah, computer wouldn't even stay on until I let it cool down. I swapped it out right away with my old Antec 620 AIO. Seems to be running normal so no damage was done.

I'm very sorry to hear about this. Please PM me so that I can assist you with getting it replaced.

The pump makes bubbling noises every once in awhile, but I think its more bubbles working themselves out. Will bleed it more later. Temps are now 36-40C at idle.

Admittedly I'm a little behind on reading all the posts, so I don't know if someone else addressed this, but if your rig sits upright like that with the rad on its side, you have effectively have no reservoir in your loop. So you will be constantly getting air bubbles in your pump. To recify this, you either try to fit a micro res in the loop, or turn the rig sideways, so that the res is facing upward to catch air bubbles effectively.

I have ZERO experience with water cooling before now. Or overclocking, for that matter. I've only built 1 computer before this. So on the system I'll be building in about a month, I wanted to make it as simple as possible, and overclocking (CPU/GPU) will be on the mild side.

Based on fan noise complaints In the Asus M6F Owner's Club for the H100i that is sitting in the box next to me, I'm junking the H100i. Pre-ordered the H220X this morning. The BIG draw of the Swiftech designs for me are their expandability, as I'd like to include my MB's stock CrossChill cooler into the loop. I ALMOST ordered the H220, but......since I still have a month of waiting to go, figured I could wait for the (supposedly) newest and best component to arrive.

On a cursory glance through this monstrous thread, it seems periodic air bubbles in the H220 pump are normal, but the most common complaint. Will the revised pump location in the 220X help to alleviate this?

Second, and I'm sure this has been asked before but I didn't see.......the design of the pump/reservoir directly below the radiator on the 220X would appear to impede airflow. What steps have been taken to correct or minimize this?

I'm sure there are other questions I'm missing, but my sleep-deprived brain isn't currently functioning well LOL. Thanks for any input!

I actually took everything apart recently and am going with a different case. However, when I had it running in the case, I did get the vast majority of the air out. I had the case lying on its side until I was confident most of the air was gone. Every once in a while I did hear a "bubbling" sound. It did give me way better temps than just air cooling.
