The fan is OK. I swapped it for a higher cfm one.
post #27322 of 28613
hey guys, my little brother has the scout 2 and we put 4x cooler master R4 red led fans in it (2 intake on front, 2 exhaust on top). for some reason, at the top exhaust area, there is this loud buzzing sound most of the time. I tested all the fans before installing them with a spare psu and they are all silent. does that top mesh cover vibrate badly to anyone's knowledge? here is a pic of the workaround solution.

Pop it off and see if it still buzzes. If it does just put 4 small pieces of foam on all four side and snap it back on. Post back if it still buzzes

On mine wires usually rub on the fan blades and make a noise cuz it's so tight up there, happens almost every time I work in that area

Took out the HDD cage and mounted my SSD with two way tape.... 10x better air flow..

I'm thinking I might go actual watercool soon... I have most of the parts from a previous build just not sure if my CPU block will fit the 1366

really wish i could find an x58 board layin around somewhere to throw my 920 DO in. just lookin at that x58 sabertooth makes me want my 1366 setup back before the mobo got fried.... somehow the cpu still works though....
post #27327 of 28613
Damn that looks good, esberelias. What cooler is that (corsair H something I can tell)? Can I see how the rad is set up?

I may want to set my scout up in a similar fashion. I've been thinking of putting in a closed loop water cooler because the Hyper 212 just looks so ugly. And I'm also too lazy to go for the effort of a real custom loop.

hey i see this alot but im wondering why so many people who have a single gpu throw the card in their second pciex16 slot.. i see this more often on mid towers. does this help with flex from heavy cards.. jw since ill be getting the scout two and also will have a asus 7950 and i imagine it will flex like hell. my last card did atleast but then again it was a dual slot card not a triple like the new one.

When i ran my scout, i found the card ran cooler in the second slot as it was getting a better feed from the front cooling fans (not certain this is why other people are doing it, just that was the case for me).

to be completely honest, the reason I'm personally running it in the second slot (still 16x slot btw) because that way you can see the ASUS logo smile.gif when the card is up top it blocks all the good looking components of the board biggrin.gif
