Been quite a while since posting in here, been lurking for a while...

Anywho, my scout is dead. Moved to the UK in October, had it shipped and someone took a forklift to it during, got a great insurance payout to cover the damages plus upgrades and am working on the replacement, but I think I'll be moving on to a slightly more spacious case.

As the forklift hit from the front, I've got both side panels available if anyone wants them, the windowed panel has a solid clear piece with no vents, pristine with no marks. Also have the original window, still has the plastic sheet on it. Send me a message if interested in any or all. I'd ship to the UK for a pittance, but anywhere else and it'll cost a bit.

Edit***

Anybody know of a case these side panels fit on other than the scout? I seem to remember someone doing it a while back... If I have to do a hinge mod and cut out the tabs, so be it, I'm just trying to save money and keep from having to order more plexi and cut another side panel when I get my next case...

Now that sucks.

Meh, upgrading to a bigger case and a 6950 because of it so it's not too bad, more sucks because I've been forced onto this crap laptop for going on 3 months now and still haven't had a chance to play Skyrim.

Now THAT sucks.

Martinm put a ton of time and effort in to the tests. Keep in mind a good case fan doesn't always makes a good rad fan.

One last thing, don't mix and mach fans in push pull. If the specs are not close you will just slow one fan down and could case a really bad buffering noise. I like the idea that you are wanting to play with the fans configuration, I feel it's always a good idea to do. I know I have come up with some configurations that worked great and some would say you shouldn't do it like that, but the number don't lie. Make sure you post some pics one you get it sorted out.

thanks for the help. Yea you got me doubting putting the fans on the side door for now... I'll maybe just get the H60, and see if that helps cool the GPU too, now it's getting 30 degrees on idle and it went up to 80 on full load with furmark. Honestly the CPU is the bigger problem, it's about 50 degrees on idle. (can't remember what it goes up to on full load ATM) any other places I could maybe add some fans? Up to screwing some bits off, not really wanting to do any permanent damage though. Oh and, PWM means that I could hook the fans up to my motherboard and control them from speedfan or whatever right?

I see I accidentally quoted something that was never said, and especially not by the person I was quoting. My mistake.

Here's picts of fans position ( lots but quiet enough ) and my i5 2500K at 5Ghz ( unluckly I had to stop at 3rd loop of IBT since 1 of cores touched 81C. lol.

Have you tried reversing the fan direction on your H60? Heard a lot of people get slightly better temps pulling cooler air into the case through the rad via the back of the case, and using just the top for exhaust.

Not sure how that setup would work in a Storm Scout though, or in a hot country. But if the air outside the case is cooler than the air in it, then it should work.

Thanks ... I've considered it but to what I feel that temp inside the case, when idle, is cooler than my room temp. Anyway i'm going to give it a try when i have spare times.
