What are your load temps with the H60? Idle doesn't mean much really (unless it's 60 degrees idle).

Only thing that has me concerned is my idle temps are about 40C. It seems a bit too high to me since I was getting around 30C with my Hyper212+
Lookin good! I agree with jamyy though. You will see temps dropping if you add some fans for a push/pull setup on your rad.

Thanks, I will have to look into switching sides for it. I do remember Rockr posting and saying that mounting it in the drive bay is just as good. I will have to switch it and check how the temperatures are impacted. Also, the fan seems so loud to me even after modifying the settings in the BIOS. Anyone else feel like that?

I haven't done a load test yet but I will report back once I do

Ya mounting the rad in the drive bays is the best way to do it, but you still want fans pulling the air in. I have the H50, but mine is really quiet.

So get this: I tried installing W7, just to what was going to happen, and my CPU didn't get any hotter! It's always at 60C and the highest I've gotten was 62C

Drive bay mounting 120 rad is a great idea if you want to keep the inside of your scout relatively clutter free. That's what I did with my set up. Getting ready to replace fans on my rad -- had an Ultra Kaze die on me

Which CPU do you have? I know some AMDs, like the 1090T do not show the idle temperatures all that accurately. At one point, I was getting 20C with air cooling with my 1090T which def didn't seem right.

you're still going to want to get those temps down though, get some thermal paste ordered and clean and repaste that cpu+heatsink and you'll get a nice drop if its done right, or you could still get yourself the h50, choice is yours, just dont keep running it til you've sorted it out
