I do remember someone posting about how they got better temps with the radiator in the CD bay as opposed to it being in the back of the case. I will look for the link after work today.

I've had my scout for a little while now, and I am greatly impressed with it, by far best case I have ever owned!
Running 5 fans for ambient air, and a make-shift H70 using the H50 with a second fan added to it.

I'm planning to replace the front and back fans with R4 Red LED fans and Aerocool 140mm to replace the top fan. Sound like a good (relatively cheap) upgrade? Hopefully it wont be too much hassle. Maybe once I have all that cleaned up I can take some pictures and join the club, so I can be cool

I'm also thinking of adding a fan grill or decal like this to the front:


What's the best way to go about that?

That would be cjc75. I did the same and did not have the same results. In fact, though my CPU temp stayed the same, my northbridge temp went up 5c.
However, I did stumble on something by accident that makes total sense now. I was trying to quiet down my case fans by setting them to 75% in the BIOS and I noticed my CPU temp dropped 3-5c. I had set all my system fan headers to 75%. This included the header from which I was running my H50 pump on. How the H would reducing my pump speed drop my CPU temp, I asked myself. Then it dawned on me, by reducing the coolant speed through the radiator, it had more time to cool. Just like taking the thermostat out of the cooling system of your car can lead to overheating as a result of the coolant not being in the radiator long enough to exchange the heat into the air. It carries part of the heat back into the engine.

So maybe some of you guys with H50s running your pumps on a system fan header, not the CPU fan header, can try this and see if it corroberates my findings. If so we may be on to something.

Welcome troop! More pics please. Some members have known to start foaming at the mouth while their hair starts to smoke trying to guess what is inside these Scouts. The cure for this is to not make their brains work that hard by supplying pics. Don't bother with words, most of us here don't read the articles anyway. Just pics please.

That makes a lot of sense. It would be quite interesting to do some tests at different flow rates to see where the optimum setting is.

As a corroboration, one of the things that people who build high performance engines found out is that using hi-flow water pumps caused overheating as it move too much water too fast to allow the radiators to cope with it. The hi-flow water pumps are designed for show cars, parade cars, and boulevard cruisers that spend their time at lower than normal rpms and need to compensate to achieve optimum water flow. High rpm engines actually use low flow water pumps for the very reason you brought up. They do use heavy duty versions though with better bearings, impellers, etc., but they dial the flow back to match the conditions.
