Anyway, I am curious if any can answer this...

I am pondering switching out my H50 in the future for something a bit more powerful, perhaps a straight Air based cooler; perhaps something on par with a Megahelem or similar.

But I am wondering, can such a cooler fit and still have room for the two Side Panel fans? If not, then I'll probably look into acquiring a new plexi window to replace the existing one, so it doesn't have the side fan vents and attempt to create a wind-tunnel effect within the case...

I've been pondering all this because I recently started having some problems with my Scout Build; and unfortunately it is possibly a bad Processor, I think one of my Cores got fried recently during a previous OC test run on Prime95, as I achieved stability but oddly, while testing with just Prime95, my Temps shot waaaay up much higher then I was confortable with for my Chip... peaked at 70+ celsius which is way too high for a Phenom II...
NONE of the big tower style heatsinks will allow you to have BOTH side panel fans installed. Some will allow the lower one, but not the top one. That really isn't a big deal though as a side panel fan blowing directly onto the top of a tower heatsink like that will normally either have no effect at all or will cause cpu temps to rise slightly do to disrupted airflow. Get a big heatsink, install a pair of fans in a push/pull configuration and reap the benefits. If you want you can try a fan in the lower position on the side panel to see if it helps cool the graphics cards.

Also, if you've been having a lot of BSOD's open up an elevated Command Prompt (run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow, hit enter, and allow it to see if it can fix anything in Windows. Once that is done open up0 another elevated Command Prompt and type in chkdsk /r, hit enter, and then reply with a Y when prompted that it can't run now, do you want to run it the next time you reboot (or something to that effect), then restart the system to allow it to run. Depending on how many errors it finds and the size of your OS partition this could take anywhere from 20 minutes to a couple of hours to complete.

So I got my fan filters in and here are some pics.







Standard fan screws worked, but dont over tight. I already messed up one of the mounting holes on a fan...

I've actually done all that already... as well as conducted numerous Ram tests and GPU tests...

The only other Hardware pieces that I've not tested thoroughly are the CPU and the motherboard itself.

The Mobo was an Open Box from Newegg; so that .. could, but the issue... in theory. But I've never had these problems before.

The fact that the problems started only after I did some tests trying to achieve a stable 3.9ghz OC on my chip, which only proved stable at 1.51 vcore after some subtle tweaks to some other settings and Ram timings.. Ironically it ran rock solid on Prime95, except that the Temps shot up over 70+ celsius.

Supposedly, the "kill" temp for a Phenom II is supposed to be around 65c and when I saw it run up over 70c on Prime; I started getting nervous and so shut down the Prime tests. Everything seemed to still be running fine, but soon after the system started experiencing random bluescreens, and various Games would suddenly just crash without any reasons, they would just instantly shut down and close to Desktop, except that there are never any "reports" listed in the Event Viewer.

this led me to suspect a Ram issue, but after running Memtest for hours on end, on several occassions... and not getting any errors, I was forced to rule out the Ram.

At this point, its either the CPU or the Motherboard, and the only way for me to know for sure which it is... is to get a second AM3 CPU to pop in there and see what happens!

If its the CPU, then my lil Phenom II x4 955 is still within AMD's warranty period so I can send it back to them for service or replacement.

If its the Motherboard... then my Mobo is also still within Asus' warranty period, though I might just replace it anyway with an 890FX board instead.

Just gotta wait a couple weeks to see what my funds look like after Rent clears the bank and the rest of my bills are paid... I'll probably grab a Phenom II x2 555 from Newegg, cause its cheap and refundable if returned within 30days, and test with that.


EDIT -- Should add, that when I do run that ChkDsk; it usually takes a couple hours to run, but never reports finding any errors on the disk. So I'm pretty sure my disk is good.

Firstly, massive thanks for the promotion Boss! I'll be sure to wear it loud and proud.
Also big contrats to everyone else.

Nice Strike and Wing models you got there! Also got my missus that book for Christmas.

I tell you a great workstation Ikea used to do, was the Mikael corner unit. A Clanmate of mine has one, and it looked proper sick with his tri-monitor setup.
Their new replacement "Micke" range (lol) just doesn't cut it compared to the older one unfortunately. Lotsa storage for a great price though.

70c made me wince a little, and only at 1.51v too, it didn't really like that.
Some people have been having problems with the H50 and the heat that's generated when upping the Voltages though, a good D14 or Silverarrow will be your best bet at cooling, sacrificing your top fan hole.
I really need to get some mulah together and sort my window mod out, I've currently got a single 120mm on the lower mount, with a cut-out of a pair of my missus' tights stretched and clamped under the perspex, over the entirety of the inlet grooves, for a dust filter.

One thing you could possibly try, to determine whether the MOSFET's are struggling to supply the power 4 cores require, or whether it's the individual core itself, is to try disabling the other 3 cores, one at a time, running it as a tri-core as you were before.

If it goes through all four cores without a hitch, then it's probably the Mobo.
If it only works when you disable the core you did at first, then you know that core's a goner and can RMA it accordingly.

That'll be the best bet to determine CPU or Mobo problem.
Also, the 555 will only do you a good testbed if you're able to unlock and OC all four cores, as the MOSFET need the power drain that at least 4 cores bring, to replicate the problem.

New developments, I’m running the H-70 in my Scout and I thought it was a little bit too big and that’s with the pull fan mounted on the outside of the case so I thought why not and put a 120mm X 30 mm shroud on the push fan, now it’s really BIG! My temps did ok though, 15 minute load test my cpu never went over 34c with a ambient of 25c, at idle it drops back down to 29c, fans are the Cooler Master Blade Master @1850 rpm.
I also come up with a prototype for a HDD cover up, clear acrylic with some aluminum mesh behind it I need to come up with some kind of blue light behind it to cause a blue glow, the mesh I used isn’t the mesh I am going with, it’s all Home Depot had though.
Also if anyone is interested I have the wind tunnel mod done on my Lian Li PC-50R, I also had some acrylic left over from making the HDD cover so I used a bit of it to make a lower panel on the PC-50R to hide wires. The 2 top fans and the 2 front fans I have plugged into the Lian Li fan switch that mounts at the top behind the front cover, 3 speeds, I think for this case I will be using the Noctua NH-D14 cooler.

So,
I bought a rad, a reservoir, apogee water block, and a bunch of 1/2" tubing, and got it all running on the bench just great. Threw in all my PC ice, and let it un-foam over night.

Woke up this morning on a my nice day off from work, and started to install everything into my scout. Install went great! Everything fit as I was hoping and mounting was a breeze..

Loaded up windows for a quick yest, excited to find out how much better it would be then the h70.

Fired up RealTemp, CPUIDZ, and Prime95..... WHAM... Realtemp shot up to 97c!!!

Well, this isnt what i was hoping... I know there was some air in the rad, and still a little foam in the lines from being moved around, but 20c more then my h70??!?

So, off everything came. Out of the case, and onto the bench, for some more testing.

As i was taking off the CPU waterblock.. I noticed it...

The plastic protective film still covering the shiny copper underside, smeared with thermal paste

DOH!!

Now before i re-mount everything, i think im just going to wait for the 3/8" tubing to get here in the mail, rather then the 1/2" i currently have.. then saddle up for mount #2!
