Okay. I decided I will try the Mugen 2 in my Scout. After reading ehume's great thread on fan testing I decided to get two San Ace 9G1212P4G03 fans. One will be on the Mugen 2 and the other is intended to replace the R4 on the back panel. I didn't want to do a true push-pull because I didn't think there'd be enough room for that if I left the R4 in place on the back. I figure with the two San Aces speed controlled I'll be able to tweak the speed curves for the optimal airflow.

The question is can I move the R4 from the back to the lower location on the side panel and still have LED control from the front button? I haven't disconnected any of the stock fans yet so I don't know what I'd need to do to get the right connection down at that point for a side panel mount. Help?

those fans have a pretty heavy draw (if they are any thing like the 3 i have in my airplane). you may want to think about only having one of them on a channel to prevent your controller from burning up

Striker36, I'm going to be using an Akasa splitter to power the fans off of a 4 pin Molex. The PWM connector will be used just for speed sensing and fan control.

that should work nicely in that case. i was under the impression you would be using a fan controller like allot of us do in the front with the nobs. my mistake for not reading well enough.



but yea you should be fine then i know it will be a tight fit but im about 85% sure you can fit that cooler in their

finally finished aunt's build.. not in a scout, but elite 335.. tried to do some management, but there isn't much to do.. used some cable mounts and zip ties.

maybe it's time i get myself a rotary tool and make some holes!

what do u guys think about it?

E5400
GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775
LITE-ON 24x DVD Burner
1TB Samsung F3 Hard Drive
OCZ 2x1GB DDR2 800
Corsair 400W PSU
3 scythe fans
[tried to install CM hyper 212+ instead, but the tip of the heat pipe extended out of the side panel grill. so if i try close the case and then slide it back out, it won't come out.. maybe i should just cut that part out.
Acer 24" Monitor

might get a GT 240 when there's a deal on it for < $30.
Total spent - ~$400
