I was considering getting the 3k and coupling with controller, but damn those are loud!
LOL, my fan controller is analog, so I don't really know the actual speed they are running, but I have them almost on the lowest position, and you can hear them a little, you have to play around a little, because if you don't match the speed on both, you get a little humming (is not annoying, but its there). I'll recommend anybody 3k typhoons, those are more than enough.

But even at the lowest setting, you can put your hand behind the case, and feel the pressure of the exhaust air going out.

plug the 3 pin in to a mobo header or cut all the plugs off and solder a 3 pin connector on. AIDA64 will tell you how fast they are going.

Oh, and the 570 is very nice, I really like it. I replaced two 8800GT 512MB in SLI, and the difference is amazing. Now this is the HD version, not the reference card, to my understanding the cooler is smaller compared to the reference card, but for $300 after rebate + free 3DMark 11 Advanced, you can't go wrong.

I did chance the connectors on them, because they come with molex from factory. With the mobo I couldn't control the speed, I would put it in the lowest setting but was still too much (over 3k), plus I was afraid to burn the board, this suckers they pull a lot of current.

And yes, those fans are really loud, that's why I bought a fan controller for them, at full speed is like having a vacuum cleaner inside my case LOL. Here is a video while I was testing them before putting them on the case: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6R71ngiANI and inside of the case they got even louder, couldn't even talk on the phone LOL. Now since Im using a shroud on of the fans I had to put it outside of the case, because the it wouldn't clear the CPU pump.
lol thats a lot of air being moved!

Nice. I'm looking at getting the 560. Guys are telling me if it's OC'd it almost matches the 570.

yeah if i had fans that sounded like that i'd have a controller on em too but hey its good for giving them a blast at full speed for a few minutes to bring temps down after something seriously intensive i guess

just a thought on those cathodes you have, have ya thought about putting one on the sidepanel vertically at the rear end? it might not go there because of the rear fan setup you have, but its where i put one of mine, i zip tied the other one to the centre of the hdd cage so it cant be seen too, so i just get that glow i think 4 4inch cathodes would be better than two 12 inch ones for the scout though, because of how cramped it can get inside one, i feel like doing the same thing myself lol

check prices on the EVGA website, maybe for a few extra dollars you might be able to to get a 570. The thing is if you get a 560 and overclock it, the card is going to run really hot. Thats just my thinking.

This is what I got straight from them http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...s%20Family&sw=
