I forgot I had it until you asked for 775. Glad it worked out. Its hard to find 775 stuff these days, with DDR2 anyways.

Edit: Now I need to sell a brand new kit of Corsair Dominators DDR3-2000 (3x2).

So one of the last things I need to do to get my rig proper is CPU cooling. Gotta ditch this intel fan

I was wondering if anyone knows if the Corsair H70 will fit how it's intended, mounted in the back to replace the current exhaust 120mm fan. My concern is that it will hit the top fan, and I'd really not like to take out the top fan. Because if I set the H70 to intake air from the back and blow it into my case, it'd be nice to retain the top exhaust fan on this case.

Or if I had to remove the top fan for this to work, would changing my two 120mm side case fans blowing IN to the case to blowing OUT of the case take care of the added heat?

Please help anyone, just need this taken care of and would like an idea of what to expect once I decide what's good. Thanks OCN community.

Well yes I am a noob here. Figured out how to search this specific thread. LOL it's late. Finding a lot of useful info.

But if anyone cares to add their .02 cents, feel free

A new SSD for the system, I decided to use the 3.5" to 2.5" adapter supplied with the case rather than the A-DATA one, the blue poslished aluminium clashes with my red and black theme



Sorry for the horrible photo, I'm sick and can't be arsed fiddling around with the camera and lights at the moment

H70 will fit on back as exhaust as well as stretch to the front drive bays (i have mine there). As far as CPU cooling goes, having it in the front drive bays is a lot better than in the back, especially if you have it as a rear intake which would then be sucking hot GPU air into the rad.

As far as case temps go, I have a 2600K and even overclocked to 4.5GHz @ 1.32v, various component temps have risen by ~1 degree Celsius at best because of my H70 exhausting into the case. IMO, I'd much rather have a cooler processor and slightly higher case temp than cooler case and hot running processor.

Thought I would post a pic of my Storm Scout...



Replaced the front and rear fans with two Gelid Silent 12's, rebraided all the fan cables, case cables, 24pin extension cable, and 2 sata cables (annoyingly those 2 are a little see through), plus removed the front hard drive bay.

I also removed the plastic section from the front panel at the bottom and smoothed it off as best as possible with a rotary tool. Should probably make some cut outs on the chassis on the fan locations but to be honest I can't be bothered to do anything else at the moment my hands are sore!

The H50 push/pull fits. The H70 push fits (push/pull is tight). The 140 top fan can be reduced to a 120 giving more room.
