asus maximus v formula and swifttech h220

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i just got an asus maximus v mobo and i see that i can water cool it with the fusion connections. I have an swifttech h220 and was wondering how can i connect the swifttech with the mobo as well and what parts i would need...

I have the same mobo and cooler. I choose not to use the fusion connections for four reasons. One they are not very safe/leak proof since you can only clamp some tubing on them. Two it adds restrictions to the loop. Three it is not really necessary vs. cooling your cpu and gpu(s). Four it is a pain in the behind to bleed and drain the loop.

The owner of Swiftech, Gabe, said he tried to add the MVF fusion connections to his loop and said it was not worth the extra trouble. If you really want to do it I would recommend spending money on an aftermarket block for the mobo where you can use real compression fittings.

By the way, you might want to get your rig in your posts. Here is how to do that:
