To give a little info about my case i have decided to make it a Red VS Blue case, so im gonna "splitt" it up in 2 sides left being red right being blue, i will switch the black stock top fan with the red led fan from the front, buy a red 80mm fan to put in the pci slots over the hd5870 to get some of the heat wich it makes go out faster than it would from the stock exhaust fan. For the blue side i have mounted 2 of my four Blue R4s in the front, not sure what i will use the rest, most likely i will change one with the stok fan on the hdd mount


Edit: oh and pics coming tomorow, since i couldnt find the camera before now and now il try to get some sleep
haha thanks dude!

and i want pictures!!!

initial email....

i was thinking about purchasing some of your R4 Blue led fans but i noticed that they only get 69CMF compared to all the other R4's that get 90CMF so if they are the same fan, why is there such a drastic drop on how they push air flow? is this just a typo or are they different fans?

their reply....

The Blue R4 fan is 90 CFM, the unit that is 69.9 CFM is the blue led fan included with the Hyper 212 cooler. That fan we only sell as a part on our store it has no retail package. The R4 fan looks identical, but the specs are slightly. Here is the link to the R4 fan http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/...roducts_id=262

ok so normally this would be a sound answer. BUT...... its kinda funny how every site sells these particular fans in retail packaging (the 69.9 CFM) so kinda upset me when a company lies and cant come clean... so i reply!!?

my reply....

ok, well they sell these on new egg and according to their specs they show them as 69.9 CFM and most of the reviews from the people that have bought them say that they are only 69.9 CFM as stated on their (retail package). so are these (cpu) fans not supposed to be in circulation or are they just trying to be sold as the original R4's? i guess what im asking is, can i only purchase the correct product from your site cause it seems that everywhere that i have looked, they all sell your 69.9 CFM version thats not supposed to have a retail package??

link to newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103060

i think i stumped them cause i have yet to get a reply! i know its not that big of an issue, but if ur going to tell me something about a fan im trying to buy that they state is only a replacement part sold and doesn't have a retail package when in fact every site on line is selling those fans... is kind of upsetting, sounds like they r trying to get over on someone and also there is the fact of buying direct from manufacture cause they always over charge u!
anyways im just venting, and i found it kinda funny, but then again it might just be the beer!
I found this for you
http://forum.coolermaster.com/viewto...p?f=29&t=12286

The are indeed 90cfm. Newegg states they are 2000 RPM. The 69cfm is incorrect. I have the green and red ones. They are 90 cfm. The only difference between the 3 LED colors and smoke is color. They are the same fan otherwise. So your good to go.

thanks dkev for the link, but if u read through the reviews on newegg there are numerous people that state the fans are only 69.9 cfm... so its really hard to decipher which one it truly is. the replacement fan that they said the only sell through their site is also 2000rpm @ 69.9 cfm

http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2915

which if u think about it is pretty stupid on their part, why would u make 2 different fans with the same model number!!? there are a few sites that i found that actually sell both types... so with that said, Cooler master is full of S*@t with their reply that they sent me! in my opinion anyways. so i dont know whats fact of fiction, i know i can get the correct model from them but im ordering a grip of stuff from newegg and would hate to pay 4 shipping twice.... cooler masters shipping is as much or more then thr price of the fans!

I think this would be really hard and even if you did the modding right, it'd be covering a bunch of your mobo since the top of the Storm Scout is so close to the mobo. If I did something like this I'd make either galvanized steel or wooden lifts for the top bezel so it could be a few inches higher but still be strong and you could have the rad outside of the case's steel frame.

I have done research myself on this matter and as long as the power connectors stay on the top side of the gpu and not the rear, it will fit.

Edit: Here is a picture of the end of the card for proof. Courtesy of legitreviews.com
I'm pretty sure the batmobile crap is just a shroud and you can take it off while still retaining the heatsink+blower fan so you can get the 10.5in that it should be.

No optical drive?(I looked for a reply but didn't see one) Also, that PSU is pretty long...But I think you can pull it off if you really try.

I know the top handle section is going to be a nightmare, if you have ever worked with vinyl you know what i mean. Anyways, heres what i did,

Scythe kama bay, had to do some drilling to get these spiffy rubber fan screws to work with it. I was going to get another fan controller but i really liked the scythe kazemaster ace. I went with 4 blue R4's.


UV red rubber fan screws with mesh dust filters. I had planned on getting the magnetic ones but they were out of stock at the time i ordered.


2X 4" red cathodes with sound module. really wanted a better location for the lights but my case is getting kinda crammed. Thanks to performance pcs for sleeving all my junkies and saving me oodles of time


Im building another scout with an i5 for my mom so ill be posting that one too! Cheers.
Looks great. I really like the dust filters.

I ended up breaking the first piece of plastic, which meant another trip to the hardware store. "All you have to do is score it and snap..." yah right.

Now I can't wait to put my 4890 vapor-x getting delivered fresh from RMA tomorrow back in the rig and snap another photo with it's blue light shining.
I don't like how it looks with the dust filters but that's just me. Good job on window modding and not breaking/cracking the 2nd one.

Prolima Megahalems 60~70$
Thermalright HR-01 Plus 50~55$[EDIT: Dunno what that is]
Xigmatek HDT-S1283 35~40$
Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme 55~65$
Scythe Mugen-2 30~40$
Xigmatek Dark Knight 40~50$

Im sure theres better ones out there now, they are released all the time. As far as i remember these were among the best a few months ago.
Same now as then except with the IFX. Megahalems is the best for now though. Mugen 2's as good as a TRUE

How's everyone doing?

Well the NZXT one takes up two 5.25" slots so you won't be able to use another front fan.
