Some of the Enermax fans push out a fair old bit of air.
The 140's I think push out 90 or so CFM at full whack.

Apollish Vegas come in Red, Blue, Green, White and Yellow for 120mm, Red and Blue only for 140mm I think

The light my 120mm and 80mm Everest's emit is clear and bright, I can't hear 'em for jack either, unless I have my face in my case.

That Apollish is looking damned nice! I especially like its additional on/off/mode button. I'm wondering if that button could be clipped off and the thing wired to the Scout's own front panel fan LED button. That'd be fricking awesome!

Unfortunately, just ONE of those fans is a bit out of my price range, and after seeing some video's of it in action, I'm thinking a pair of them would like awesome in the front of my case, as well as one in the top.

Anyway have any idea how, or if, that things Mode Button, can be wired to the Scouts front panel button? I might just replace my lower front case fan with just one of these, as maybe three of them would be too bright!

Oh an Enigma, awesome video! I actually saw my own Scout pictured, had to hit pause and rewind a couple times to make sure and sit there go, "Hey! Thats mine! Awesome!"

And, as I thought. Carbon Fibre veneer in all of it's 'turn me into something sexy!' glory.

Hi guys, i have just assembled my new system into the Scout.. it's great, all is working ok but i decided to change the stock intel heatsink. Here's my rig:

case: CM Storm Scout
psu: Seasonic M12II-520
cpu: Intel Core i7 870
mobo: Asus P7P55D-E EVO
ram: G.Skill DDR3 4GB PC1600 CL7 KIT (2x2GB) RipJaws
gpu: Gainward Geforce GTX 460 GLH
audio: Creative SB X-FI Xtreme Gamer
hard disk: Samsung - Spinpoint F3 1 Tb (HD103SJ)

I am getting mad to find a good heatsink(i want to do slight OC for now, maybe a little heavier in the future, but never extreme..the important point is the LOW NOISE), i have read the dimensions in the first post, but measuring the space inside the case i still have some doubts so i'm better asking. I was thinking about one of these heatsinks:

-ARCTIC COOLING Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 (130 x 100 x 131 mm)
-Scythe Mugen 2 (130 x 100 x 158 mm)
-Scythe Yasya (130 x 108.5 x 159mm)

The problem is that if possible i want to mount it vertically, beacuse i fear that mounting it horizontally will hit against the tall heatspreader of G.Skill RipJaws!

It seems to me that Freezer and Mugen can fit.. but i must be sure! Otherwise, please give me some advice, what can i buy for a little OC and SILENCE? Thanks!!

I am not sure if those two specifically are pictured, but... all along the first few pages on this thread, are dozens upon dozens of pictures of everyones various builds, showing their monsterous Coolers successfully fitting.

Yes, I say Monsterous, as there are pictures of the big daddy himself, the Prolimatech MegaHalem with dual fans mounted on either side in push/pull!

I would also suggest, if you're willing to splurge just a little extra, and you want "quiet" then look at the Corsair H50. Its a self-enclosed coolant system; no messing with the coolant, just install it, plug it in, and hit yer power button! Quite a few people here have H50's in their Scouts, myself included.

The H50 will also give you more then enough headroom for future overclocking.

However, if you really want to know for sure, on the specific Coolers that you're looking at...

What I did was, I copied the Pictures of my Motherboard from Newegg, and copy/pasted them into MSPaint and took the Top down view image of the Mbo, enlarged it until it was roughly accurate in full size, printed off the top half showing the Ram slots and CPU sockets.

Then I took a couple pieces of cardboard that I cut to mimic the actual size/height of my Ram Sticks, glued them onto the picture, then took it to my local MicroCenter, took the Cooler off the shelf and took it out of its box (cause MicroCenter will let you open the boxes!) and set it down on top of the pic!

It if fit, and cleared everything that it needed to clear, then it was worth buying!

Good luck with your selection!

Well, closed loop liquid...no worries about leaking and Corsair RMA is top notch should the unthinkable occur.

Otherwise, you're gold with a Noctua nh-d14, or a Coolermaster V8...as loud as your preference fan-wise. As long as you aren't doing any extreme OCing...
(heck even a Corsair A50 will do...that's an air cooler)

Oh, one more thing!

In order to copy the motherboard pics off Newegg, you have to use the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard, then go into MSPaint and right click with Mouse to select "Paste"...

It might ask to enlarge the area within Paint and thats ok, cause then the image is pasted, and then you just make a cut-out of just the motherboard, copy it, scrap the rest of the image, then paste the cut out onto a clean draw area.

From there, its easy to enlarge the image to actual size.

Also bear in mind that you dont just have to account for the Ram Sticks, you also have to account for the Heat Pipe on the other side if its got a large heat sink mounted over it!
