The Megahalem does not. So, you're looking at another 15 - 20 in cost per Fan, if you plan to go with a Push/Pull set up.

Push/Pull is where you have two fans mounted on either side of the Cooler.

One fan is pushing the air into the cooler, while the other fan is sucking that air out and pushing it towards the case exhaust fan. This set up, moves air through the Cooler much faster, and DOES reduce temps even further; in some cases you can see 3c - 5c drop in temps, sometimes more depending on the fans!

A lot of people with expensive coolers like the Megahalem's are typically doing this with them.

Mind, you don't have to... but its just something to bare in mind. If you're buying a Cooler like the Mega, thats not a baby you put a cheap $10 fan on...

Thats like.. damn, finding yourself naked in bed with Michelle Rodriguez (your Megahalem) and, discovering that... damn, you're just not, preforming good enough for her!
but your still naked in bed with Michelle Rodriguez

I understand your point
No, i plan to buy a GOOD fan but only one, no push/pull for now, and pretty slow on RPM's and noise.. only, i have seen that maybe Scythe Slipstream aren't much too good for the mega. I can't find Gelid fans either..

If you want to go with one fan get one that has good static pressure and pushes close to 60+cfm and 25dbs or less. What stores are you looking at? That way we can look to see what they have.

If you only want one fan try the CM BladeMaster. http://www.svc.com/r4-bmbs-20pk-r0.html

It's one of the top fans for a heatsink according to EHume's Guide.

My first purchase was a Storm Scout with Silent Pro 700 PSU and ATI 5850 GPU. Absolutely LOVE this case, as long as everything fits in, I can't see myself replacing this case anytime soon!

Looking to add some extra Red Cold Cathode tubes, but heard they turn out pink. What advice do people have for lighting up the rig a bit more. I want to have the same deep red as the cooling fans that come with it. Any Ideas?

Anyways, awesome case, recommend it to anyone that wants a rig with a graphics card that isn't a 5870!

I myself have never have experienced the dreaded PINK OUT of the red and a red clear plastic around a white CCFL will never Pink Out.. But I would suggest RED LEDs because of the lower wattage and more light. At 1.5 Watts per 8inch strip you can't beat that.

It could get a little loud, CM's website has it rated at 13 – 32 dBA but still a good fan. I might have to try some of these out if I need more air for my WCing kit.

Rad! So I'll probably go for the H70 just for the extra few degrees of umph diffrence, and I'll probably put an extra 140 in the front to help feed the cooler and cool the ram.

Also, has anyone gone 3x crossfire in one of these cases? For some reason I thought it would be cool to 3x 5850's once the 6xxx series comes out and the 5xxx prices drop. Of course that means they'll be tight together and probably not get the best air flow into them which worries me. I'll probably just go 2x5850, although my mobo has 5 2.0x16 pci slots! (2x16, 2x8, 1x4) Which is another reason why I'm suddenly worried that stuff won't fit. I'm going to be installing the mobo, PSU, HDD and OD tomorrow in my girlfriends garage tomorrow after work (my apartment is full of staticy carpet and I'm not sure what to clip my static wrist strap too!)

So is there an official release date for 6xxx?

Some time this week. Remember though, AMD changed the naming scheme, what you think is a 6850 is more in the performance range of the 5770. It's the 69XX series cards that'll be the top dogs.
