Default Replacement for Swiftech H220? *UPDATED*

I have a H220 loop with a GPU block added inside of a Bitfenix prodigy M but my block is failing! Due to it being a discontinued product, I can only get a store credit from NCIX for RMA.

Update: So, I didn't get around to the RMA right away, but now I have to again. My thoughts after all this was to get a H140-X and buy an extra thin (<30mm) dual radiator to add into the loop. Since the H140-X is on back order and I don't know when my pump will fully die on me (some days I can't use my computer at all for a few hours until the pump decides it can work again), I wanted to see if there are alternatives.

What can I get from NCIX that will still allow me to:
1) Add in a GPU block to the cooling system
2) use less than 55mm of space for radiator + fans (the H220/H240-X does not fit in my case due to GPU clearance)

Did they gave you full credit of the price when you got the H220?

What kind of loop do you have? If it's CPU only then maybe one of the corsair AIOs?

Im kinda curious to what kind of credit ncix gave as well. The pump on my h220 died as well and need to RMA it.

H140-x but you'd have to get another radiator for the top. The Dark side lp240 would work great here because it's 27mm. You'd also need some more tubing 3/8-5/8 and a few extra compression fittings or reuse what you have.

The 140mm fan mount should be fine for it.

The pump on the x series is much much better than the original.

I'll overlook it this time. The proper way is to PM him to see if he might be interested. He's going to get something for free from NCIX, he just has to choose what.

Done. I removed my original post SugarJ is referring to. My bad.

1) I am getting a store credit with NCIX equivalent to the price I paid for the unit (excluding taxes, shipping, etc).
2) I can only fit a dual rad on the top and if I really squeeze things I'd be willing to max my clearance at 65mm for a rad + fans, for an external pump like the H220-x I only have 90mm clearance until it would hit my GPU.
3) I have a GTX 680 Classy with an EK block in the loop.
5) The H140-X looks like a very good option (has the same pump as the larger H240-X).
4) No matter the option it looks like I'll be paying extra.

It's hard to say if my pump 100% the issue or if it's the 4 pin connector for the pump as I do not see any loose wires/damage to the 4 pin cable, but it's been behaving after I un-plugged and plugged back in the 4-pin connector (mind you I've been on holidays and not using my computer for a while).
