hey people!

Getting paid tomorrow, just wondering what you thought would be the best high end air/low end water cooler (1x120) which will fit in the scout. at the moment the Arctic cooling Freezer 7 I have is rubbing the fan at the top of the case and driving me nuts!

It will be used to cool both my current Q6600 and a core i7 920 when I upgrade to it in a few weeks time.

my top choices atm ... the CoolIT Domino ALC for low end water .. or the TRUE?

any other suggestions?

are the fans adjustable in the CM case? I want to adjust the fan speeds to higher.

No they are not. you will have to get a fan controller and plug the fans to the controller and a Molex to the controller.

Newegg has quite a few. They come in 5 and a 1/4 and 3 and a half inch sizes. But you will have to volt mod them to get them to go faster.

I wouldn't bother going water in this case unless you want to do some modding.

I'd suggest the Megahalems instead of the TRUE. The TRUE will need lapping to perform at it's best and it'll still be worse than Megahalems. Megahalems are like 60 USD.

It is simpler just to replace them.

I noticed a lot of questions about the fans in this baby: I think that if you have a fan pushing from the 5" drive bays across the ram, through the cpu cooler and out the back (and out the top) you will appreciate the low temps you get. If you can add one from the outside of the (side panel) and point it down onto the ram you can keep the tunnel moving across the board and through your cooler.

I wish the stock side panel had the fan mount there.

I have fit TWO 4870x2 in there so you have the room since the cables on these suckers come off the front.

I still have no solid solution for the triple 120 rad though. I am thinking it will have to go across the bottom, pushing up and out the side panel at the same time. Does anyone know what type of standoff screws I could use to old the rad up so I can drop one of those fans coming off the back.. I have to leave one off anyway (noisy), and its just for support.

Here is my build so far (pictures link)



As you can see I have a few issues. For example, I need a second water block for my second 4870x2

I need to get a rad top or cap for my pump to eliminate the extra plumbing for a res. I might go T-Line if I can.

I need to sell some old stuff like the dual bay DDen res, CM V8 CPU cooler, fans, and more.... and buy another rad to drop my temps.


I have gone through many rookie problems to get this far so if you are in doubt ASK before you try. I am more than willing to share my mistakes

I have done a lot of research on this case and I like it. I was thinking of getting it. But I have a question. If I trade all the fans out for the orange Xigmatec ones with the white leds, can I make the switch for the leds on the stock fans. Like the button on the front panel, can I make it work for those fans? Thanks.

I am not an expert on the fans you are talking about but I would say:

Yea, sure you can. There are two loops running of the switch. If you can control the lights on the Xigmatec fans independantly (they are independent of the fan power on separate wires) the for sure.

You will see when you open up your case where the two loops are.
