You may want to just try removing one of your fans and trying it out before investing money on them. Some have reported that if you use the window fan as a exhaust fan it won't make this noise. This pulls the cooler air from the front of the case to the GPU's and pulls the hot air around them out the case, With the addition of a fan in the drive bays, your CPU will get cool air from that. As for the fans, are you planing on using a fan controller or your MB to keep the rpm's in check or are you wanting a fan that is quiet when running at 100%?

Moving the rear fan to the front adds a nice look to the front of the scout with the extra led's. It's not really HARD to do it, it just takes a little patience to get the zip ties on right (Don't use the ones that came with the Scout, they are cheap and break easily.) I have big hands, so that might have something to do with it, too.
I like the Ultra Kaze fans. At 50% or lower speed they don't make too much noise, and still move a ton of air. On 100% they sound like a jet. lol
The window does make some noise as an intake, especially when the Kaze is on 100%. Personally, I don't like the look of those fan slots on the window, I think it takes away from the otherwise sleek look of the case. I'm planning on putting a windowless panel on it when I can afford it.

Guys, what I'm seeing the best option for me would NOT use fans in the side window is this? What do you guys recommend me then? Only buy another fan to put on the back of where I'll get the original fan to put in upper bays? Or leave the cooling system of the original Storm Scout is already good anyway?

Honestly, without an overclock, and with average components, you shouldn't need fans on the side. I run one on the side because I have two GTS 450's in SLi, and my office gets hot some days. I didn't have overheating issues without that side fan, but it does stay a few degrees cooler with the fan.

I was running with the two stock LED fans up front (intake) and the top and rear as exhaust. You'll want more air coming in than going out. That will help to keep dust out. Maybe just buy another fan to stick in the back, and set it to run at like half power in BIOS. Give it a week of standard use, check your temps now and then at idle and under load. (Speedfan is a great program for this if you didn't already know of it. http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php ) If your temps aren't satisfactory, buy another fan and try it out on the window. But it does make some noise, and if it's running 100% it will probably be enough to drive you crazy after a while. lol

Like I said before, the Ultra Kaze fans are nice. But loud at over 50-60% power.

You are welcome here anytime, Once A Scout Always A Scout thumb.gif
But I'm not digging the new case, but cases are a personal thing as long as they are built good and are setup for your needs. Keep us posted on the new build, I love to see what our Scouts bring to new cases, most times they knock them out the park.

Yes I wouldn't use them unless really needed, you will not believe how much better cooling you'll get to the CPU once you put a fan in the drive bays. If you have the tools, I would also cut out the honey comb mesh in front of the stock from fan. This will increase the air flow a lot, to the point it's like getting a new fan.


Off Topic time, I will be on vacation for 30 days in Florida wheee.gif I'll do my best to try to stop in from time to time, but I'm sure you all will be able to handle any questions that come up. For any new Scouts, I'll update ranks and try to manage picture links in the Member's list when I can. The Pic of the month will get posted, still time for new ones wink.gif

Excuse me, but I did not understand. The fan that originally came on the back you put in front, was it? This fan that you advised me to stick in back It is the place of the original that comes on the back, is it?

Beauty tip to remove the honey combs. To finish the setup I just need my colleague from above to clarify the position just right of the fans. Thank you guys!

Yes, take the rear 120mm LED fan and mount it in the top disk drive bays using zip ties, or double sided tape. Be sure to remove the plates that are mounted there. I left the bottom plate in place, and mounted the fan to it with two fan screws. The plate covers part of the fan, but it is much, much easier than using zip ties.

Put a new 120mm fan in the same place you took the stock fan from. thumb.gif

Thanks for the response. Other questions:

1) Putting the original rear fan in the top disk bays it will lose functionality on and off the LED's?

2) At the top you left the original fan or replaced?

3) I did not found the fans that you suggested here in Brazil to buy, you could direct me to others that you like? Preferably with a good relationship between CFM and noise ok?

The LED's still work. You just need to re-route the wires.

I left the original fan, but it never hurts to get better fans.

I can't really suggest any other fans, as I've never used any others. I've heard Noctua makes very good fans but I have never used them. I'll leave it to someone with more experience to make suggestions on fans. I would highly recommend making a post in the air cooling forum and asking these questions. You'll get better help, and this thread has gone WAY off topic.thumb.gif
