Think a fair bit of personal preference comes into play when it comes to a CPU cooler

Although I still dont like the idea of a massive hunk of metal hanging off my motherboard.... think theory was pretty much settled when a friends cooler fell off at some point between packing the PC and unpacking it at the LAN..

and yes before anyone says it... that shouldn't happen to a properly installed CPU heatsink.... but remember it will be me installing it

Last time I tried to do it I went into it blindly and I screwed up an hour and a halfs worth of work and I lost 10 bucks worth of plexiglass

Whould be awsome too have one but not realy prepared too pay the extra for the megashadow and for the bracket thingy
Nope sorry dude, the mega shadow only supports lga 775, lga 1366, and lga 1156. you would have to buy the adapter. The mega shadow sure is expensive, I'm going to be paying 100+ for mine when I get the money cause im going to by it along with a 38mm fan clip, a panaflo 120mm fan, and a tube of mx-3.

Any fitment issues on our cases with the Xigmatek Dark Knight or the Rosewill FORT120? From the looks of it, those DHT air coolers may actually be better than the DominoLLC and the Corsair H50...for a cheaper price too.

ooo just remembered another mod I've got on the list, which will fit for us blue lighting peeps.... and the green ones (which I'd like to add look kick ass!)

I was thinking of changing the Power and HDD LED's on the front panel from red ot blue. Anyone thats had the panel apart reckon this is possible? or has anyone already done it??

The Mugen 2 is huge but it's the best bang for buck cooler as it has 5 heatpipes and cost less than the Dark Knight and outperforms it. It's also square shaped so you can have fans on all 4 sides if you want. Okay, well back to the point. I put zipties around the ends of the heatpipes(have a look at them, they have weird ends) going through those top holes on the storm scout so the case is reinforcing it.

should just make your own clips out of steel wire or just use zipties.

nope, both fine. Mugen 2 costs less and outperforms both of em though. Well....costs less in America that is.

That's for the megahalems. I don't think they'd include AM_ brackets in another revision though.
