When i ran my H70, i just used the front bay covers own vent holes, which lined up 100% perfectly with the 120mm fan on the H70..



That secured the whole thing to the case.. however, you wanting to put a larger fan, infront of the h50 will take that option away

The only thing i could think of is going to the hardware store, and buying 2 thin peices of aluminum. Bend the ends of them at 90 degree angles, so they fit within the 5.25 cage. (They would kind of look like square brackets like these [ [ )

Then you could drill a small hole in the side of the cage, and into the aluminum strips.

now you have like, cross braces across the back of the bays.

Drill out holes on thoes strips for your h50 fans and secure it to them and walla

Guys, i am planning to buy a CPU Cooling. I have a Coolermaster V8 but someone told me that the Xigmatek AIO-S80DP is better. I have an AMD Phenom II 6X 1090T Thuban. What do yo suggest me to do? change my V8 for this one?

That, actually is a rather ingenious thought...

I had removed those metal bay covers last year when I first built my Scout! lol.

I wonder if I still have them somewhere; though I think they may have gotten through out.

I'll give that aluminum idea some thought; going to try to plan this out over the weekend and maybe order 1 or 2 fans sometime next week.

The Xigmatek is a Liquid Cooling system, one of those "all in one" set ups
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233011


Honestly, when it comes to enclosed Water Cooling setups like that, I would think the Corsair H50 would be a much better bargain then the Xigmatek.

Its about $20 more then the Xigmatek, but its about on par with a Megahelam; and you can get them cheaper then for what Newegg has them. I think I saw FrozenCPU was selling H50's a couple weeks ago at $65.

On a 1090T; I would not use the Xigmatek... but if you really want to get some good information on how reliable it is, then I would go ask about it in OCN's water cooling section!

But do you think a V8 is a good option, should i keep it or change it for something like that?

The Corsair V8 is a large cooler block, and yes I think in my opinion it would probably be better then the cheaper Xigmatek... but as I said, I do not know enough about that Xigmatek to make a fair opinion. I just think it looks like a cheap Water Cooling set up...

As for the V8... make sure it wil fit in your Scout WITH your current components. for example, does your Ram have high sitting heat spreaders like the Corsair Dominators?

The V8 would be tight with those Dominators.

Look at the first couple pages of this Thread, and you might see some Pics of the V8 mounted inside the Scout!


EDIT -- sorry .. mis-read... you stated you already have the V8! Haha, I would stick with using that as opposed to switching to a cheaper cooler on a 1090T.

If your in england and you decide to go for the H50 (Which i will also recommend. It looks awesome, it performs brilliantly and you don't have a massive piece of metal almost siting on your window.) then its on eBay for Buy it Now/Best Offer and people have managed to get it for as low as £39!!!!

PM me if you are interested.

Putting a rad in the front, and one on the back was my Plan A originaly, but the resivoir i bought was cracked due to the cold and UPS leaving it outside so i couldnt use it So i had to go back to my previous res which was the 5.25 bay one.

As for your bay arrangement, I have an SSD on a tray in the bottom slot right now, and the CD rom above it.. not because I wanted it there, but i figured it was good insurance to have it under the Res, JUST INCASE there was a leak. Id rather it drop on a 20 dollar CD rom then a 200 SSD

But, i do like your idea of putting the rocker switch below the res.. what i might do is put it in the same bay as the SSD, and the bonus would then be i have a free 5.25 bay down the road!

Thanks!
I see where you are coming from. I didn't realize you had an SSD hidden under there

I think i have seen a rad mounted infront of the HDD caddy. I think the pipes were sticking through the the caddy holes. But none the less they are good idol temps (not sure what load temps are good for Intel?)

When i tested my H50 before i had to RMA my mobo i think i got 33 idol and 66 load with prime 95 with my Phenom. I hadn't done any testing to try and find the coolest setup, this was the setup i was using at the time:

They took OCN offline for a couple of hours to bring another server online a couple of days ago to lighten the load on the Search. That helped a lot, but they are doing some "side" maintenance (I think they meant site but who knows) so there are still some glitches from time to time, but at least we have Search and most of the other features back. The last word I saw stated they hoped to have everything back to normal by the end of the weekend.
