Summary: I had some issues with an Asus z77 Sabertooth where the water pump would whir audibly at times, except when the system was under load. This seems to be a problem with the bios fan control and the max-min requirements of the pump. To fix this I had to disable Fan control for the CPU in the bios. Then the pump is running at full speed, but you cannot hear it anyway since the whirring stops, so it is fine. You can still use Fan controls for the radiator fans.
Summary: I bought one of these last August when I built my PC, and since then I have had to RMA it three times. The first time was due to a rapid clicking sound coming from the pump, the second time due to outright pump failure, and yesterday morning, despite Swiftech's assurances that the 'new pump design' they sent me would not cause problems, the pump failed yet again. I have asked Swiftech for a refund, as I am sick to the back teeth of this CPU cooler.
Summary: I've had the H220 for about 3 months now and I have nothing but high praise for it. I was looking for a more effective cooler than my old Corsair H60 and was looking at the H100 but stumbled across this one from Swiftech which had good reviews from trusted reviewers on Youtube. The cooler is a little different to most other all-in-one coolers in that the loop can be expanded and the user can add more items such as waterblocks, reservoirs, extra radiators or replacement...
Summary: The pump failed within weeks of fitting it. while it worked it was actually worse performing then the Corsair H100i i'm currently using, whether the lack of performance was due to the pump failing I don't know. pump failure is a common issue on these as seen by Swiftechs own forums, this model is actually obsolete and there is a joint Swiftech and Cooler Master replacement.
Summary: One thing i will say is... If anyone states that this cooler does not give good temps, they have either mis-fitted it or something is a miss. I have an i7 3930k @ 4.7 (1.38v) Both tests on the h100 and the swiftech H220 were done with Akasa Viper 120mm Fans. I recommend the pump at 40% speed as this reduces the noise and has NO impact on the temps.
Summary: I ain't exactly sure if that was an issue with the package but one of the fans is problematic. It does not spin as it is supposed to and it is generating a throttling sound. That is pretty bad for a cooler of its calibre.
Summary: Excelente kit de refrigeracion liquida. Estaba entre este y un Corsair h110, una vez recibido y probado no hay ni punto de comparacion, el Swiftech h220 es un producto con una bomba mucho mas potente y lo mejor puedes ampliarlo y enfriar otros componentes como la GPU o memorias y todo ello sin invalidar la garantia. He pasado de tener sobre los 70º con el Noctua nd h 14 a unos 55º en un i5 email@example.com Pros: - Facil instalacion. - Sin software ni nada raro.
