This has probably been asked 5x10^∞ times. But does the Meghalem fit in the scout? xD
If so does it also fit with a fan in the side panel? Just saw that it will be comming for the AM2/2+/3 boards and i might just skip watercooling for one... if it fits

What i've read the Meghalem is one of the best coolers around so get that one when the Rev B! get's here cause it will have the support for all modern sockets

And it seems i may go blue only need a place with some good blue fans
Prolimatech has revised the Megahalems to accommodate 1156 brackets. Just be sure to look for "Revision B". Here's an example site selling em - http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/proli...pu-cooler.html

Making some changes to a second case to see how it comes out. I'm after the best cooling I can get from this case, and looks.
1. Cut out front grill, inner and outer
2. Cut out grill under top cover
3. Add a second fan in the 5.25 bays, THIS 120mm fan adaptor from mountain mods.
4. Only thinking about cutting out some of the HDD gage for air flow
5. Directing the air flow from the 5.25 bay fan using THIS plus on the bottom front fan if there's room.
6. 4 green CM R-4 120mm fans.
7. Change the side window to green with THIS.

For the fan on the window (lower one, because the mugen 2 takes up too much space) would you put that fan as an exhaust, or intake onto the vid card? If it means anything, two fans push/pull on the mugen 2, vertically to go up that exhaust fan on the top.

BTW - any fans you recommend to replace that top one with? It barely moves air it seems =/.

Kev_B, I am not a member of this club but have had a storm for a month now. The only reason I haven't joined is because I am ashamed of the hardware inside and am planning to upgrade everything soon and join. I have been following these posts for a while now trying to get tips on how to improve my scout, but one of the first things that I did when I got it was cut out the ugly fan grill on the front cover. I noticed the other day that you did the same thing and have been wanting to do the exact same thing you did and cut out the next grill that it in the way. Can you tell me what tools you used and where you got that rubber edging from? I am really new at this sort of thing and would really appreciate the help. Thanks

I have my side fan set as intake so ambient air is fed directly to my video card.
Your top fan? You mean your top case fan? That moves a lot more air then you think.

Simple, go to the hardware store and buy a 4.5 inch hole saw, they cost around $35 to $40, then gut an old fan and screw it on the outside of the case to use as a saw guide and start cutting. You can find the molding at most computer mod stores, I got mine from HERE.
