Okay since there are so many questions about CPU Coolers I wanted to put this problem to bed and share my Intel on the Cooler Sizes.

If you want to use both side fans you will have to keep the Cooler height below
146 (H)mm This is the exact height of the ASUS Silent Square that I have and it barely touches the top side fan.

So with 2 Side panel Fans install.

146 mm Tall from CPU to Side panel top Fan.

If you install only the bottom Side panel Fan your maximum Height for the CPU Cooler will be

171 mm. From CPU to the Side panel With No Fan on the Top

Heatsink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 161mm is the optimum size range for this case. Any thing larger than those specs will probably not fit. But the Range from top of the case to the bottom of the case should not excede 120mm. Side to side dimensions have about 140 mm. To play with.

Funny side note to this story. I wanted to see if the Cooler Master V-10 would fit in this case and I found out that it is 9 mm too tall from top to bottom of the case. Otherwise it would fit.

No only from the outside looking in. Cooling won't matter that much with the mugen.

Hey guys saw your thread thought i would join seeing as i got my scout yesterday

what an awesome case .. makes my old P180 look pretty standard!

pics!

side on


side off


love the case couple of things though ...

Artic freezer 7 skims the default top case fan thus making a horrendous noise. Sooo I'm going to buy a Domino ALC or a NorthQ Siberian Tiger this week and was just wondering if you guys think it would fit in there ok.

The other thing is I had a couple of old school IDE drives and neither would fit into the bays as the little notches near the front blocks them in ??
I'm completely stumped with this as I thought all DVD drives were the same width and it probably means I'm going to have to buy a new one. booo.

Cheers!

EDIT: sorry if pics are too big, didnt realise they were gunna appear actual pixels not thumbs.

Nope. My mugen 2 doesn't...but like I said, it's better to have a good cooler + 1 side fan than a junk cooler with 2 fans.

A couple of thoughts:

I built a system with the Scout recently. Pretty much the best coolers you can get that will fit in conjunction with a door fan is the Thermalright Ultima 90i or the Thermalright SI-128SE. Both fit fine and are within only a few celcius of a TRUE under load (I have all 3 coolers).

REALLY hard with 1 person if you want to plug in the 4/8-pin mobo power through the CPU retention bracket. If you have 2 people, it's easy.
