Swiftech H220 Drive X2/ X2 Prestige AIO Coolers

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I recently received my H220 X2 yesterday. I have the installation near complete but I am still questioning a few things. Forgive my ignorance as I have never purchased a Swiftech product before and the installation guide is one single sheet with nearly no words. Purchased from Newegg Is there anywhere i can find an actual install guide with more than a single page that has words? I have spent a lot of time searching but am unable to find one. Possibly because it was just released? I also contacted support with this question, but am still waiting for a response.

I found this on their site just by looking up the h220 x2. I imagine it's the same as the installation sheet that you mentioned it came with. It's pretty simple really. The only hangup is mounting the universal waterblock to your specific motherboard, which the sheet covers pretty well.

What are you having problems with?

I actually received contact from Ren at Swiftech and yes it was the one you posted. Don't get me wrong, it is definitely useful. I was just hoping to get a little more detail on a few things. But, i did search around and found confirmation to everything. The only problem I am having currently (and discussing with Ren) is the two fans will not power on at all when connected to the included pwm splitter. Everything else has power (pump, led on pump, led on water block and mobo correctly recognizes splitter plugged into CPU header with no issues). Right now I have the two fans connected to my fan controller just to get them running. I will update when I find out what the issue is.

Overall though, I am very happy with the cooler. I am posting pics of it installed (not great ones) on my Rig if anyone is curious to see. Support is also top notch so far. They responded to me very quickly. thumb.gif

PRIME95 temperatures barely touched 71C for a few seconds, but overall averaged around 65C.
Idle temps were 19C-23C average. I will post screenshots when i get home today. FYI, I am newer to water cooling, so if my temps seem way wrong or I am just misstating something all together, call me out on it.

Either way, I am extremely happy with this product and would recommend it so far.

Here are the temp results. Let me know what you think. Feedback is appreciated. CPUTemps.png 126k .png file

79C
I would not be very pleased. Maybe try reseating it because that doesn't sound right. Is your 3770k overclocked like crazy?

Only one single core hit that 79C and that was during the prime95 test after a few minutes of 100% load and all PWM fans on minimum. I don't have screenshots but the idle temps sit around 22C. And under typical use and gaming I sit around 44C. I just figured those temps were high due to the prime95 test. Am i wrong on that?

I am just using the BIOS overclock utility and have it set to 4.3 (max setting of 4.4)

Well yeah the temps are high because of p95, but max temps are still max temps. My old Corsair H60 got similar temps on an i7 920 at 4.2 ghz under intelburntest loads. I'm not completely sure what kind of temps you should be getting on a 3770k, I just expected better out of this Swiftech unit with the improved pump, improved waterblock, and improved/larger radiator.

Since you mentioned using the BIOS OC utility, it is completely possible that your BIOS is giving far too much voltage. This is pretty common for automatic overclocks and it might explain your higher temperatures. Automatic OC utilities tend to overshoot voltage to play it safe. They might give 1.25v where 1.2 is perfectly stable. Might be worth trying to trim the voltages down a bit.

Unless you've got a big discrepancy in your core temps, you don't, then your highest core temp is the one you want to look at as it's your peak temp. If all your cores were 10-15c lower you'd probably have a block seating problem, uneven TIM, or really bad IHS seating.

At 79C core temps I really doubt your PWM fans were spinning at minimum speed. PWM fans ramp up as the temperature rises, just short of 80C should have had them working overtime.

Thanks! i will probably just disable the BIOS OC Utility as i honestly don't need to OC at all. And i will reseat the block eventually in next few days and see. Appreciate the feedback.

Wow... huge difference after I turned off the bios OC.

Thanks alot man! Much appreciated.
