I just completed my build with this case about a week ago! Love it. But I have a few questions.

I'm looking to replace my storm scout's stock fans out with CM R4 Blue LED fans.

-Do I connect the 3pin fan connector to the switch on top of the case (which controls LED lights)
-If I connect it to the switch, would the fan completely turn off if i turned the switch off? I'm not sure if i would still be able to control the LEDs if i get replacement fans.
-Would I be able to control the fan speeds or would it be on 100%?

As you can see I'm not sure what to do or what is the best method in connect the fans in my case. I ordered 4 fans (2x 120mm and 1x 140mm) Replacing the front with my 140mm and back with a 120mm and maybe mount 1 side fan with the other 120mm.

What is the best method in connecting these fans. Is it still possible to control the LED feature when i add these fans?

Thanks! Any input and advice is greatly appreciated!

Yeah poor meteor doesn't like the warm weather.

Plus the fact that my room is tiny and has the sun on it almost all day, ive had to whack the typhoons on full for now. Its sitting at about 48c all the time which is about what its usually on when gaming. I need to move to somewhere cold lol

Smurf and Zero got you covered here..

If you connect the R4's to the LED cable you will blow out the circuit. It's not designed for fans, only the LED's from the fans, and then only with fans that have separate fan and LED cables on them.

Ok I officially hate warm weather.

I decided to try my hand at the newest version of a landscape rendering program I have.

I dunno if this seems about right or not so im gonna ask you guys what you think about these temps.

Things to consider:

- Meteor had been on for 11 hours when I did this test a few minutes ago.
- All 6 of my cores were maxed out at 100% usage for 26 minutes 19 seconds during the rendering of the image.
- My gentle typhoons were on max speed in push/pull config for the H50 which is an exhaust on the back of the scout.



It maxed out at 55c during the rendering process. Seemed a little warm to me but then again so is the weather here atm. So I'm not sure, Its probably just down to how humid and still the air is here.

There isn't much else to change however, the H60 isn't much of a boost in cooling over my H50 and any serious watercooling setup would require a new case. Perhaps I can change the stock front and top fans for something better, im thinking a couple of thermalright ty-140's...might need a new fan controller too as mines only got 4 controls and id need 6

On the upside I rendered a beautiful scene:

55c!!!, and you're complaining! If it's hot you're not going to get any better. A full on W/C loop will only get a few degrees cooler for all the extra expense. You should be proud you're gettin it that cool if you're in hot weather.

Working on my Scout mod whenever I have a chance.

I've been working on a PC for my girlfriends 8 year old daughter...

Its the purple PC.

The other pics are of one of the mods I'm doing to my scout case.

I think I'm going to go with covered toggle switches for the power and reset for the scout case.

The power led and hard drive activity led are both going to be put somewhere else on the front panel or inside the case so they are visible through the side window.

I wonder what it would look like to have the Power and Activity Lights on the Side top of the front Facia Panel. On the side that faces you of course. That would be an easy mod and it would look pretty cool One up and One down.. Like a Stop lite..
