Swifttech H240X question on when to change out the coolant.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just have a quick question about when I should be changing out the coolant in my Swifttech H240X. I've had the system probably close to 3 months now and while temps are the same as they've always been, when should I start getting ready to swap the coolant out and all?

And any suggestions for when I do change it out on possibly a new mounting way to make it easier to change coolant in the future because as it is now I have to take the entire thing out of the case, fill it and put it back in =/.

This is taken right from their page As shipped from our factory and installed as directed (*), the H240-X CPU cooler requires no maintenance during its 3 year warranty period; a system refill is recommend at the end of 3 years. Under extreme ambient conditions, the system may need more frequent refills. If upgraded by the user, the interval of time between refills will depend on how users implement their customized loop

Edit: as for refilling, removing the whole cooler is a pain, but at that time it'd be a good time to clean the radiator thoroughly, re-apply thermal compound as well as change the liquid
