post #591 of 2766
I don't overclock my i3770k (at the moment) and after an "emerge world" of my system (in gentoo's linux it basically compil all new packages which use the CPU most of the time at almost 100% for about 30 minutes) the highest core never get to 35° C which mean my delta is at max +12° C.
It's much better than with my H100 (about +20° C) but I used liquid ultra as TIM for the Phanteks and the temperature don't cool down as fast with the Phanteks as it was with the H100 (I don't mind as it's very good so).

Here is a good 140mm/120mm fan review. The Cooljags did the best in static pressure and air flow. It turns out this fans specs are underrated by Evercool.

Will this cooler fit in a coolermaster storm scout?
Storm scout 1 that is.

Just to clarify some things:

I have 140/141mm of space inbitween my ram and the inside of the side panel of my case, and I have about 167mm inbitween the cpu and the side panel.

So, can anyone tell me if it will fit?

It will fit. Center fan setting on crossbar screw sets 165mm and that is 3mm above top of cooler. Cooler measures 161-162mm from heatsink face to top of cooler. I measured mine 57 zillion times and kept getting 2mm variance. fins on pipes to heatsink just aren't perfectly square and true.

The tightest point is the 140mm fan on top of ram. Phanteks fans measure 139.78-140.21mm in a 22c room. wink.gif These thing are definitely not made to aerospace tolerances. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the info, the fans can be moved up/down right? so I assume I can lower the cooler all the down so they almost touch my RAM sticks.
I have just read trough the operator's manual and it said that 165mm is the "maximum allowed" height (assuming they have kept a few mm's of margin)
So at least the heatsink would fit, this is the part I was most worried about since I don't really want to mill in a brand new €90 CPU cooler's main component biggrin.gif .

If I understand this correctly you say that the center fan sticks out 165mm in it's lowest position? If so then I shouldn't have to modify or replace at least 1 of the fans either.

I have a little doubt on whether or not the 2nd fan will fit though, I just remeasured and I have 144mm clearance, but the side panel of the storm scout 1 has an indent on it facing outside, giving me a little bit of extra space, but not on the entire surface of the side panel.
If I take off the side panel and measure it again, I measure approx 139-140mm (I have to gamble a bit on this one because there are no solid parts I can measure to whilst keeping my ruler horizontal).

Thanks again, I appreciate it.
