I have no idea what the best fans are but being a fellow noctua owner I can tell you will only be able to fit one fan on the window because the cooler is huge and it covers the top fan grill.

welcome voodoo actual. Whichever fan you choose,run it at 7volts so you don't get turbulance noise from the window. It is a common problem

Hi,

I am a new owner of the Scout case, so far I am pretty impressed with the build quality and styling. I have one issue that I hope someone can help me with:

I have searched high and low for an answer to this question and cannot find anyone with the same situation. Basically I have purchased some after market LED fans that include an on/off switch on the body of the fan, these I thought would be an excellent replacement for the existing fans and still keep the LED on/off switch function on the front panel.

My only problem is that I cannot work out which wires to cut into to maintain the on/off switch - I presume that I can simply snip the switch off the after market fan and wire it into the existing wiring for the CM stock fans.

To make matters slightly more complicated I am planning to run these fans with PWM control on the motherboard, but power them from the PSU. I have purchased this product:

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...source=froogle

This appears to give me power to the fans from the PSU (not stressing the motherboard's power) and the ability to run the fans at different speeds depending on load via connection to the motherboard 4 pin PWM header.

The above bit I can work out on my own, it's just the replacing of the stock fans and the wiring to the LEDs that I can't figure out. Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,

Jamie

Thanks for the advice guys, I'm just going to stick with Gentle Typhoons, heard so many great things about them. Also heard about that top-fan thing, I haven't got my CPU cooler yet, but it's making me think about getting a water/smaller air cooler, 'Cos seriously, I've got two OEM GTX 470's (One arrived today, saving up for my second now.. Aria shipped quick, I'm tempted to stop buying from amazon and keep it up with Aria) so the Cooling is a major issue for them as they produce a craptonne of heat (or so I'm told). Also, will I need a fan controller to run them at 7v? (Fan n00b I said )

i asked a similar question hope my experiences help you out:

Twist the wires with your hand and then use a BIC lighter to melt the shrink around the connection.. It's really easy and not Fatal.




Also.. Congrats Doctor.. Love those rectal exams..

If you are ditching the noctua I would say you could use the splitter with the resistor that comes with the kit, then just replace the ends with molex connectors. you would effectivley have a choice of voltages between the pins... You would need to check out what the value of the resistor is and do some ohms law calculations to work out what the final output to the fans would be.

That's just an idea, without doing the calculations I couldn't tell you if it would work or not but in theory it would lower the speed of your fans enough to prevent any noise through the window.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: you could even use the system fan socket on your motherboard if you don't fancy making connections.

Hi everybody, here's my cm scout, some ideas are inspired by yours, like the cover of the hdds, of course the dust isn't part of the case, it will be removed very soon =)

Welcome to the Club! Nice hard drive cover. The scout is a great case. Looks like that 24 pin is in a horrible place.
