With the H50, is the stock exhaust fan for the scout better than the stock Corsair fan?

Thanks =)

Fan Shrouds are what I was talking about.

I took a pair of old Thermaltake 120mm Fans, that I had laying around; and I cut the fans and motors, out from the center of the outer frame and filed its interior edges a bit.

Then I used those as Fan Shrouds with my two Cooler Master R4 Fans on my H50 Radiator... but I did a butcher job with my Dremel when I made them.

I'm looking at a couple over at Preformance-PCs.com that I might order at some point.. just can't afford to just yet. So much I still want to do with my Lil Scout! lol.

Now.. what fan should i put in the monster?
I was thinking about Scythe SlipStream because i like to have the manual regulator, but i am open to all suggestions
Congrats on your choice! IF, you have not yet ordered your Mega...

Someone here on OCN is selling one, might want to look into whether its the one you can use!

Here's a LINK to his thread, he's selling his Mega for $60 w/shipping included! Send him a PM and ask him about whether its the Rev.B that you can use, and inquire about all the proper mounting accessories that you need, make sure he'll include them if its the Rev.B!

His Mega is the 6th item down through the Pictures.

As for the Fans.

Over at on the H50 thread, they have a Link to the following thread, which discusses a number of the most popular Fans, and how this guy put them through all manner of tests.

Here's a Link to his Discussion on this Tests, with Videos showing everything he did!

Good luck!

I know, I think I might have the worst overclocking i5 750 ever made.

I have this fan on mine, it is a PMW fan though. One thing they don't say in the specs on newegg is the static pressure witch is 1.6 mmAq/mmH2O, so you don't need a second fan. I even had a second one on mine but all it did was make more noise so I took it off. But that fan is very quite and moves a good amount of air too.

Newegg has it for $62.00+$2.99 shipping right now, so maybe you can talk him down too.

Ok guys, so I'm making my first computer! I've always used preassembled laptops. Anyway, here are the bits and bobs I have so far:

Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 955 c3 Black Edition 3.2GHZ (stock)

MOBO: MSI 890FXA-GD70

PSU: XFX 750W black edition semi modular

HDD: Samsung F3 7200RPM 1T

OD: Lite-ON 24x DVD-RW

My next purchase shall be 8gb (2x 4gb) 1600 8-8-8-24 RAM RipJaws eco

And I'm still waiting to see the prices of ATI's 68XX series, because at the moment I'm thinking of one 5850 now, and another just after Christmas.

And I'm also wringing my hands about which cpu cooler to get.

DO YOU SEE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THESE ITEMS FITTING IN THE CASE?

I'm thinking if I go for a Hydro H50/or 70, I'll move the rear 120 fan to the side, and I'm also thinking of an extra 140mm fan at the front of the case in the drive bay. If I do the extra 140mm, then I should put the 120mm blowing out? Otherwise there might be too much pressure to equalize? Or would the two side vents being left uninterupted keep the pressure fine by breathing either way... hmm.

Um, Go! Calm my nerves! Tell me everything is going to be alright and that everything will fit just dandy!

You're all VERY kind and helping me a lot, thanks again

I prefer to buy it new, one of my favoured shops sells it for a good 45 euros and i have to buy other stuff too, but thanks for the tip!

I have only a doubt.. it seems difficult to install from what i see in the reviews.
It is so? And, i guess i have to take down my motherboard from the Scout.. sigh..

Everything is going to be alright and that everything will fit just dandy! I would have the H50 blow out the back, nut you can try it both ways. About putting the fan on the side, a lot of people have said it makes a lot of noise there. I think you might want to wait for the 6000's to come out, most times there is a price drop on the older cards.
