Hello everyone. I am sure glad I found this thread, as I just ordered this case for a new build. I have been scouting around it (no pun intended), and found a lot of answers to my questions so far, but need advice on one issue. I got a CM V8 for my cooler, and I noticed a lot of people use that. I have seen some pics of people using the V8 with the top case fan, but also read some other posts and reviews saying that the fan wont fit in any way shape or form with the V8. My question is should I stay with that or get the Zalman cnps10x Extreme? It seems like that has a little smaller profile. Is anyone using that with the Scout, and able to use the stock top fan? I am not partial to either brand or cooler, and it would be a straight exchange if I went back and got the Zalman. What's your guys' take on that? All my parts should be here Monday, hopefully after the build I can enlist in the club.

You need some kind of filter for the side fan, canned air gets expensive after a while.

Hi zrockstar
Most of the guys on this thread will prob recommend buying something other than those two coolers but if its between the two I would go for the V8. I think it slightly outperforms the Zalman and looks really mean in this case.
It wont fit in, with the top fan in place but then you always have the option of removing that window and replacing it with a new one, possibly adding a fan or 2 across the bottom. Im about to add some fans to my new window.
Well good luck man, you wont regret buying this great case.

Ok so no Zalman either huh? I think I will end up going with the Corsair H50 then. Ill use the fan from that kit on the back of the case and move the stock fan to the side window.

Thats exactly what I was about to suggest.. The corsair all in one water unit seems to be a winner in the cooler scene and doesn't take up much room at all.

Here is the way you fix that.

What you need
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=1986

Then you take your side panel fan power wires and wire them together into one cord Eight inch cord.

Then you run that cord through the back of the computer into this external molex connection and just use the metal connectors and throw the plastic connector away. Place a red indication on your hot wire of your fan so you know which wire is which. You can hook it up 7 volts for quiet running or 12 volts for full volume and when you need to take off the side panel. just turn off the unit power. Unplug the outer wire. Take out the panel. Do what you need to. Then run the cable back through the hole in the back put the panel on and plug it in again from the outside.. Really convieniant. It works great and you can change the speeds of your fans just by moving one wire. to another hole. Easy as PIE. and the wire disappears.
