And I just found out that there was an H40 LOL. How long has it been installed? Did you try shaking the rad and the pump to send any air bubble to the top of the rad? Give it a couple of days, if the noise doesn't stop, give Corsair a call, its been known that some of the Corsair Hydro series coolers have problems, but very far in between.

Ooh me likes the LEDs in the block, seems everyone is gettin one nowadays! I will have to look up reviews and see how if compares to a Supreme HF. biggrin.gif

Nice living room setup! I wish my couch was closer to my monitor rolleyes.gif Looking forward to seeing that case extension still thumb.gif

I was browsing the web the other day, looking for an adapter to put a 120mm fan on the 5.25" drive bay, and came across a lot of products, and the one that caught my eye was this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185020 but its discontinued. I liked that one because of the black mesh on the front mimics the one on the scout. Since finding one of those turned out to be quiet a difficult task, I decided to start browsing some mods, and the word "wind tunnel" came to mind. I think someone in this forum created a box using old cd drives, and installed two fans (one on each side), and LEDs, etc. I want to create something like that, but out of acrylic, 120mm fans on each side, sucking fresh air, and pushing it towards my H70. What do you guys think? Any links with info that you remember would be greatly appreciated. I'm not looking to modify the case in any way (yet...) and I'm planing to keep the front bezel the way it is, and use the perforated metal drive covers as dust filters.

edit: Found it, Striker36 did it. Hope he doesn't mind if I try to copy it. http://www.overclock.net/t/525009/official-the-coolermaster-storm-scout-club/12160#post_10483939

Well, I just installed it yesterday, and yes: I did shake everything. No result!
anyways: thanks.

just went to the mediamarkt, (Dutch Company that sells all kinds of stuff.)
and found out that all Harddisks were sold out, lol that is such a big fail.

Yeap, floods and bad weather are hitting factories pretty bad in asia. Everything that needs a motor is in back order, even the group buy for Typhoon fans is being held because of this.

Aren't ya all glad they put most of the factories in one place like that? Genius! Next, I say we move all the oil refineries of the world next to a dormant volcano that's on top of a major fault zone! And move Silicon Valley to tornado alley! thumb.gif

Now fluid dynamics is not my strongest subject but I would like to point out that unless you space the fans out at a specific distance, This system would have little to no benefit to improving airflow.

the easiest way I can put this across is by imagining air as water (air is also a fluid and behaves the same way) and the fans as propellers :-

Fans too close together = the turbulence created from the output of the first fan will prevent the second from performing efficiently due to the various changes in velocities and pressures (if you look at how water behaves with a propeller air does the same) . This would then mean that the second fan would be blocking the airflow and reducing the overall performance then if you had just one fan.

Fans too far apart = Airflow would begin to loose its velocity and the pressure would begin to normalise before entering the second fan so the output would be no different to having one fan to begin with.

Other factors that could prevent this system working are:-

rotation speed tolerances of the fans = all fans have a speed rating i.e 1200rpm, but all fans can never achieve exactly 1200rpm due to the various tolerances within them including material weights and motor tolerances etc. Now this would provide a problem in this set up because if one fan rotated at even 1rpm faster/slower then the other, it would become a "blockade" to the airflow preventing optimum efficiently.

The final...probably the most import fact of all = If by some miracle you manage to get everything perfectly spaced and timed correctly you will still see no benefit to the having this type of set-up.This is because a fan is only able to produce its maximum CFM and this because of the pitch of the blades speed etc. So putting two together is only going to achieve the same amount of airflow as a single one would have done,

The only time doubling up identical fans is used is when you need to transport a flow of a fluid over a vast distance and even that technique is not used much any more due to more efficient ways of doing it.

thats just my 2cents.gif anyway tongue.gif

Thanks for the response, its much appreciated. Maybe I didn't explain myself properly. I'm not looking to improve the airflow of a fan, by adding another right next to it, I fully understand the principles that you are trying to explain, (thats why I never understood the push-pull set up for water rads) I'm mostly trying to get some more airflow into the case, and I thought that I could utilize the empty drive bays in front of my case. I thought about putting one fan there, but in the cosmetic side of things, two fans enclosed in a acrylic box would look much cooler. I'm not looking to improve my CPU temps, nor trying to discover something new, just looking some ways to improve the looks of my scout. Maybe I should have mention something about cosmetics over function. But like I said, I appreciate the time you took to explain all the details thumb.gif

ok, just finished redoing my water loop, i had cut one hose too long and my pump/res won't fit properly. so, here we go:
