Those are Corsair fans on that CoolerMaster CPU cooler. They are just about the best looking fans on the market and their performance ain't bad either!

as you can see i have some of the tallest ram and my board just has just enough room to squeeze them in lol literally the one dim has a bit of pressure on the heat sink but no big deal

This is my ram

I don't think they should cause any issues being that they seem to be low profiled un-like my 1066 PI with the tall heat spreader

Looks like I may have to go that route and just use red fans to get the look I'm going for.
One last question. I found a cooler that I think would really compliment my board, the case, my GPU, ram, Everything. Only problem is the deminsions. Not sure if it will fit. But if it does I think it will give me a unique look.



Dimension 157.3 x 113.8 x 163.3 mm (6.2 x 4.5 x 6.4 in)
Heat Sink Dimensions 156.4 x 84.2 x 151.7mm (6.2 x 3.3 x 6.0 in)


If I choose to get the cooler and it "doesn't" fit I'll have to change cases altogether. frown.gif

Seems I may be leaving the club before I can officially be in it. redface.gif

Somebody gonna help this guy out? I don't know Adam from tower coolers. I went from stock straight to an H60, which is not overkill by the way. If you want to see your board and all the goodies inside, see if you can find someone on here to mod a window for you. I'd love one like the Scout IIs for mine. GPU cooling is more important in my case.

This is my new build - Storm Scout II
Was worried about how to mount the Water 2.0 Extreme but it worked out pretty nicely I think.
Radiator mounted outside the case with fans on a push.
Not sure about the chrome but I wanted something to protect the radiator fins.

Looks good, but yeah, the chrome has to go... HINT....

GPU cooling is more important in my case.

It's a CoolerMaster X6 - and they show it mounted in a CM Storm Trooper on CM's site.

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6797

If you read the reviews on the Elite version (identical in most respects) on Newegg you'll see that it is problematic for fiitment on certain motherboards:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=35-103-105&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Keywords=%28keywords%29&Page=1

Because the heatsink is angled it can have major issues clearing RAM sticks - go with very low-profile RAM to avoid this, such as the new Crucial Ballistix Sport:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148664

You can remove the fan & mount, reverse the fan direction, and reinstall it in pull mode behind the heatsink if the cooler hits your top GPU - many have had to do this according to the reviews I'm seeing.

You can also remove the decorative top plate (screwed on) if your side panel won't fit.

Google the review of the CM Elite X6 (because hardly anyone reviewed the non-Elite model) and you can find images showing how it blocks tall RAM heat-spreaders and even see images without the top-plate. (hint - "think"computers org)

BTW - it did not get a good score - not competitive at cooling, either. IMHO, I'd go with something else... too many variables to take into account. A shame, really - because it is a stylish and innovative looking cooler.

Is there a reason the protective film is still on your window? tongue.gif
