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!

The design change does two things. It avoids any more issues with Asetek's stupid patent trolling and it allows for air to be purged much more easily. This is also a stronger pump than the H220 so this will also help with performance and the ability to purge air more easily.


Having the reservoir located under the radiator like this really doesn't impede air flow very much at all. Our own testing has shown that the kit really doesn't suffer because of this change in design.

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.

there is no impeading of airflow, air will move around the pump

Add me to the group!!
Got my H220 a few months back but as yet have not installed it as my current case (NZXT Tempest Evo) won't allow me to fit the rad+fan assembly in the proper orientation (fill cap facing up)..



That and a few other annoyances found me with a new 750D!rolleyes.gif

Swapped the fans out for 2 GT AP-15s and temps have dropped quite a bit compared to my Noctua NH-U12P SE2.
So far so good, product performs splendidly.
Now dangerous ideas of expanding my loop to include my r9 290 are swimming around in my head...

it would be nice, to get that revised pump for free or for some minor payment, cause after three days i still have some random bubbles in my pump with that annoying ticlking sound.

Can you PM me about this and have you tried the instructions in the OP for removing air from the pump?

@BramSLI1

What is the cause of all these pumps dying especially the one with bacteria buildup after 3 months of use?
post #9547 of 20766
This cooler outperforms my previous h100 by a long shot.

We're looking into it, but rest assured that we're on top of it and this won't happen again.

I hope this won't happen with the new H220X.
