    Sounds awesome, can't wait for the pictures. Just bear in mind how bright the LED strips are, especially in an mATX case like the 350D, and don't over-do them

    I wanted to fiddle with my computer again. I dont have to upgrade anything performance wise, so I decided to go for a new CPU cooler. I started to get annoyed by that block of metal, so I decided on a WC solution. It had to be a AIO, so I pretty much decided to go with the H100i. But I got curious about the h220, with its upgradability etc.
    I looked for benches, but that proved difficult. But it seemed that the H220 performs better and with the ability to expand the loop I decided to get that instead

    I might add my gpu later on, or just wait till my next build to try that out.





    I had some issues with the screws (damned things were to short). My original plan was to put the rad inside the case and have the fans in pull in the little tray the 500r has. That fit perfectly, but the screws...... So for now it is sitting there, not attached for now. I will probably get new screws later on, or switch some stuff around.
    The fans are in pull atm, but I might aswell put them in push. But for now im content with it. Temps dropped by 10 degrees, im hoping the TIM needs some cure time. But like I said, im content for now. I will probably fiddle with it when I got some more time.

    CPU: 2500k (4,5 Ghz)
    Cooler: Swiftech H220

    dat dust, please please use more intakes as fans, yes i go on about it a lot, but thats the main reason why dust settles in your system, theres nothing wrong with making those rad fans as intakes, the resultant worked air will be expelled fast....

    Temps so far are pretty good id guess. I dont have a direct comparison with a h100i tho. Noise is good aswell, got it at fan speed 5 out of 10. So im geussing thats 50% and I can hear it if i stop playing music or w/e. But thats mostly the fans, Im not hearing the pump

    Build quality is pretty good. It is all attached rock solid, during building it in I swirled it around quite a lot. It is pretty big tho. I still have to figure out a proper way to install it more inside the case. Either have it as an intake or outtake. From what I have been reading it is advised to have the fill part upside (as I have it now). This makes it easier to remove airbubbles if there are any. I havent heard anything like that so far, altho it might happen in the next few weeks.

    I think the pump block looks pretty good. Than again, I dont have to look at it :P

    Just hope the "new smell" will go away soon :P

    For the price of the h220, you can basically get a XSPC WC kit :P

  15. #11435
    Thats another 50 euros overhere, for the cheapest set (out of budget for me). And I didnt want to dabble with WC that much

    This is my first "try" with it, or which it will when I add my gpu in the future. I see the H220 as a gateway for WC for me

    That you need to assemble and leak-test.

    There seems to be reliability issues with the H220.

    @Merc is that an XPSC Rasa kit? Nice blue/black theme.

    As for me, lookie what I got! Yes, that is an a authentic leopard-skin bedsheet that I stripped last week off a real leopard that I came across while journeying across the mountains. Obviously I couldn't pass up that opportunity, chased the motherfucker down (they don't run as fast as shown on TV) and managed to punch it to death.



    Oh and the GTX780 arrived too, I guess.



    Also a tube of Noctua NT-H1 to help push the old i5 2500K to 4.7ghz, because IC Diamond doesn't exist in this country. No matter, NT-H1 is still pretty awesome.



    Good opportunity to clean out the entire rig, dust off the fans, apply the new paste, install the new card, etc...



    This is what I eat to keep myself energized, recommend it to all computer builders. As you can see the grapes and orange chunks are still alive and trying to escape from the bowl, it's best to eat them like that for MAXIMUM vitamanz.



    This shit can clean anything from thermal paste to leopard bloodstains, very handy.



    Goodbye my dear 660 Ti, you did very well. After a bit of dusting it should look good as good as new and ready for auction. It's still got ~2 years of warranty left lol, should be an easy sale for at least $350-400 NZD (yes, graphics cards are expensive here :P).



    Finished rig, everything plugged in and desk area vacuumed up...




    Lots of overclocking to do tomorrow, my 2500K is pretty meh requiring 1.36-1.37v for 4.7ghz stable. Needs fine turning.
    The 780 reached 1200mhz core and 1750mhz memory easily, I'll be using Heaven 4.0 to do some benching but ultimately it'll be my games which determine stability.
