Yup, but its no big deal if you only use 2 dimms. the MSI p55 boards actually require you to mount your memory in slots 2 and 4.

If your going with this one then buy Duplicolor Yellow and brown

first cut out your pattern and then spray yellow and then with a tooth pic cut the little scratches in the face that are there and then spray a really fast and lite coat of brown over the yellow maybe once and or twice but dont cover your yellow too much.







If you are going for the last one it will be the easiest. First copy this into a paint program and make it the size you want. Then cut all the black part away use some tape on the back of the paper to put it where you want on the case. Then Spray with White... Really lite coats with Auto duplicolor paint or air brush. If you are using the can remember to test the spray pattern on a dark material so you can see if it bubbles on you. White is really hard to spray and is better air brushed but it you can do it with duplicolor can automotive spray paint from the autoparts store. Get White purple blue and black.

Sequence best if airbrushed but can will work too.
White
Purple
White
Blue
White
Black
try it once on a piece of card board first to get you pattern right and then take a deep breath and spray the case. Go with quick and thin strokes. and don't get into a hurry. I love the second one but you would have to do some really artistic airbrusing for that one. The first one is easy too. Same procedure.
Wow big quote, Did you have to sand and prime the side of your case before you painted it, or is the texture of the case allready OK to paint over?

So whats my alternatives that would fit in my Scout? im thinking of going for th Corsair HD50
Thats a bit ghey!

I've got the Corsair H50 and would recommend it. I found a 16 degree temperature drop under load! wrote a post about it a few pages back. you can also fit the radiator with a push/pull setup in the 5.25" bays if you only have 1 optical drive, which leaves loads of room inside the case.

Then il have to get another solution on the HDD since its in the lowest 5.25" bay.

How are they size wise? aint them kinda big too? well i can always mount em Pushing/Pull to the top but that aint the best way since the "Grid" blocks to much air and dont want to Cut that out

the mugen is 4 sided so that can help with the push and pull either horizontal or vertical..., maybe turn yours vertically?

They are just as bad as the Mega in that aspect I have looked. Its the poor design of the 1156 motherboards. As for upgrading to 8 gigs down the road, I would suggest either switching ram kits and go with a low profile kit or go to 4 gig dimms. and move the 2 gig dimms to another system a year down the road.

You don't need to mount the H50 at the front within the 5.25" bays, it can be mounted on the rear exhaust port. Tests have shown that having it mounted at the rear with a push/pull setup exhausting air out of the case resulted in better temps than having it drawing air in from outside.

I put this down to no airflow restriction from having to suck through grills/filters etc.

That is just a guess though.

I'm guessing if a case is set up like mine (4 fans pushing air in and only 2 pulling it out) the air is gonna wanna be pushing through there anyway so the fans are more of helping it on its way rather than pulling it.

But then air flow can do some weird things at times

Anyway, I got nearly a 20degree drop with my H50 in the front over my stock cooler so dont see much point trying it at the back for a few extra degrees.... unless I try a little of that overclocking malarky you guys keep raving about

Why can't you just use the xigmatec 1283 in that case. Im sure you can push pull with that one too with zipties on one side.
