Madmaxneo I have a slight issue I need help with. As mentioned above I replaced my MCP30X with the MCP50X on my H240-X. Unfortunately the MCP50X does not come with the wire harness for the res LED included on the H240-X. I am thinking I can wire into the wiring harness but I am not entirely sure what the voltage is and which is the positive wire. A swiftech rep said it may be 5v like the Iris ones are but he wasn't entirely sure.
If it was 12v that would be awesome cause I am wiring in some UV lights right now and I could rewire it into that harness easily, if not then I have to make a different harness for the different power required.


Anyone here ever rewire that light? Either way, anyone know what voltage that light requires and maybe which wire is which on the unit?

Madmaxneo I am impressed with Swiftech.

I just came from an i7 4930k on a Rampage IV black ed MB in a Phantom 820 case to a Ryzen 3900x on a Gigabyte Aorus Elite Wifi in a Lian Li LanCool 2 case. I originally had my CPU cooled by a H240-X and a Heatkiller IV pro block and my GPU cooled by a H140 and a Heatkiller IV pro block. When I started this build I had planned on using the same cooling arrangement but I could not fit the H140 as the exhaust fan (the LanCool 2 only fits a 120mm fan in the back of the case), so I combined them into one loop with my H240-x. It did really well as my GPU idle temps only went up maybe 3 degs and the Ryzen chip was apparently running average temps. I still was not satisfied with the Ryzen temps so I ordered another RAD for the loop and the MCP50X pump to replace the MCP30X on my H240-X. After I install everything and get it up and running I noticed my GPU temps have dropped significantly than they were before. Now my idle GPU temps are 27 deg which is lower than it has ever been and my benchmark/stress tests temps do not go above 48 deg so far. My CPU temps have also dropped significantly but it is a bit hard to tell with the temps spikes that are common with Ryzen chips. On average I believe I am seeing about a 10 deg drop in average temps on my CPU with a definite drop of 10 degs on the low temp end of about 35 deg. When benching it hasn't gone above 60 degs so far which is awesome but I need to do a good stress test on it now.

Note that originally I thought about installing a H360 in the front of this case. I discovered it wouldn't work because although it would fit a 360 deg rad it will not fit the H360 (no matter the version) because of the res being on the rad itself, and there just isn't enough clearance on the rad mount for the rad/fans/res combined.

That may be my best option. What rad did you get?

I honestly don't see how much easier than this it can get...

I doubt there are many choices when it comes to custom loop draining. I can probably stick a drain valve at the bottom of GPU and keep it there but i dont mind doing it the way i do.
