I'm considering, mounting a 92mm fan in the bottom of the case in between the HDD-cage and the PSU. But im wondering if anyone knows a good 92mm fan that can be mounted horisontaly. Read somewhere that some fans doesn't realy survive long in a horizontal position...
Currently looking t the Schyte gentle Typhoon and the Noctua NF-B9 cause they're the best fans (What i've read) on the site where I'm going too place my order.

I'm running one of these in my new scout mounted the Rad under the DVD drive at the front drawing air in.

I chose it over a heatsink as I just don't like the idea of having such a large lump of metal hanging off my motherboard. Admittedly I don't need a big heatsink atm as I'm only running an old 5000+ BE chip, but I wanted to sort cooling/case/power supply first before the big upgrade.

Its quiet, cannot hear the pump whatsoever, the fan is a tad louder than the case fans but it's not that much of a difference.

I'll get some pics up when I figure out how to hehe.

Oh and Hi everyone, new to the site, been watching this thread for a few weeks now, some great mods and advice, helped push my decision into buying one of these.

Love it!

Ok here goes













Sorry for the quality, the only camera I have at hand is the 2mp one on my iPhone.

As you can see it's not the most elegant install of the CH50 but it works, the space under the dvd drive is spot on perfect to fit the Rad/fan, I used one of the pop out 5.25" drive plates to secure the fan, but all it does is hold it upright, the actual weight, not that there is much, is actually on the rad itself as it sits perfectly on the base of the 5.25" drive enclosure.

I chose to mount it there as Corsair insist you have the CH50 fan drawing cold air into the chassis over the rad, not blowing out as an exhaust fan, so i mounted it at the front where the filters are and so I don't disturb the direction of airflow by having the rear fan as an intake.

Thanks very much MlbrottarN for your instructions on how to upload pics, and for welcoming me to the site

ah sweet.. I'm currently thinking of getting some kind of water cooling setup for my scout, though not sure if I should just get a H50 or a "real" expensive setup instead

Is changing all the fans to the cooler master r4 series better than the stock fans? Even the 140mm fans?
as said before, you can zip tie it:



or, you can use other case parts, such as the fan mount from the antec 900:



EDIT: btw, i saw I got case of the week a few pages ago, thanks! haven't been on here in a while. i just finished my move from florida to texas, and it took forever to get internet hooked up.

Thats sweet!!! I want mine now

and good call putting the rad in the front! I hadn't thought of that.

I had heard about the odd instructions from Corsair about making sure the fan pulls fresh air in across the rad and blast the hot air into the case... which seems a little odd, but I'd also seen reviews where they questioned this and set up the radiator on the rear exhaust as you would any normal fan setup and they actually got a better cooling result.

I like your plan though, gets the radiator out of the way and plenty of room for a push pull set up, although it does still blow the hot air into the case.... *ponders* anyone got any thoghts on that?

Anyway, love the setup deezaal

Well the way I see it is this, you have one large fan at the bottom bringing cold air in, the top fan is blowing cold air over the rad which on my setup, still stays relatively cool, the rear and upper exhaust fans are still blowing out cold air despite me just playing farcry 2 on very high settings for over an hour. So blowing a little warm air into the system simply gets exhausted by the upper fan pretty rapidly since they are both uptop, leaving the lower fan to do its job of bringing in the cool air.

Again I know it's only a low power dual core cpu and only an 8800 GT but in my old case, both these were enough to generate a fair amount of heat. Cpu used to get upto 65c + in my old case using the old HS/fan. dropped to 55-56c with old HS when I got my scout and now it doesn't rise above 38c with the H50.

I actually feel cold sitting next to my pc lol.

The real test will come when I perform the CPU/MOBO/RAM upgrade, just can't decide between i7 920 or phenom II 955.

I'm not a fan of Intel but theres no denying that i7 920 is a monster.

Edit :Those Antec drive bays, what material are they made from?
Can you buy them separately?

lol @ "only a 8800gt" should feel the heat mine pumps out! my Q6600 doesn't pump out so much heat, probably cos teh ghey assed stock cooler cant shift it quick enough.

Depending on how much room there is I'll probably stick mine on the rear blowing out. Just seems more logical to have the hot air aimed outwards, and plus I've already got 2x 140mm's at front and 2 120mm's on side blowing into the case, dont want another 120mm blowing in.

If it goes to plan it'll be my first proper modding adventure, want to put the rad and 1 fan against the rear exhaust grill on teh inside, then have another fan against teh rear exhaust grill but on the outside hidden away in some mesh and body to match the front panel.... theoritically... should be able to get the push pull set up on the go, and not eat into too much space inside teh case...

and who knows if that gets the temperature down a long way my 2nd adventure might be have a little overclocking the CPU play... but that will need some SERIOUS researching!
