That is confirmation on that data. Each fan has four wires. the red and black wires are for the leds in the switch leg and the yellow and black is for the fan only.

Your PSU should be enough. I'd just save up for a 4870 or something. The difference you'll see from one 8800 to another will be minimal.

It's hard to understand what you're saying but if you're saying you're going to SLI 8800's, you won't be able to with that psu.

IF you had any other PSU but a corsair I would say no. You don't have enough to SLI, BUT the Corsair is underrated and Probably is more like 520 watts.

This card will run the same as 2 3870s in Crossfire

Guys, today something horrible happened. Not THAT horrible since it didnt affect anything inside my case, but something really terrible COULD have happened. I woke up and turned my computer on as usual, and after only a few seconds i realise my entire case is FULL of white smoke, and its pouring out the holes in the sidepanel. I panicked and tried to turn it off but it wouldnt work, and finally i reached to the back of the case and cut the power.

What had happened was that my 140mm front fan had caught on fire. The entire cable had melted or something and the fan smelled really weird. Luckily the cable wasnt touching the mobo, or else it would be full of melted plastic.

Anyways, a friend of mine bought the scout as well a few days ago but replaced all his fans with green LED ones, so he gave me his 140mm fan and another 120mm. I replaced the 140mm with his and noticed it glowed alot more than mine had ever done, which makes me think it was bad from the beginning. His 120mm (which i put in the drivebay) also glows alot more than my 120mm fan, so that one is propably bad as well. Sucks.

Just thought I'd let you guys know. Also i just pulled an all-nighter so if I dont make any sense, just ask.

EDIT: Here is the cable. Pretty blurry pic but you can see the black "cover" on the red cable just... melted off:

Thanks Haxxie,

That is definatly a problem. Truth be told my front fan is not spinning. I thought it was because I messed up my wireing when I did my build but with this news we may all have to replace that front 140 mm fan with another brand fan.

Okay Scouts. We need to look for a suitable Substitute for the Front 140 mm fans. Rep goes out to the best results. Lets try hard to stay with the original theme of the case and try to find red LED fans. thanks in advance guys.

And you guys, don't forget to Vote in this months Mod of the Month contest. Semper Fi.

Hmm, now I'm glad I replaced my rear fan with a Yate Loon from my last build. I might have to look into replacing the front fan now, too...
post #348 of 28613
Guys, are Akasa fans any good? After this little accident I'm going to replace the rear fan as well, and the only red LED fans available in my area are the Akasa ones, but i dont know anything about fans. Y/N?

I'm glad the fans were the first thing I changed when I bought my case, I have 2 140 mm Xigmatek fans in the front and 120 mm on the rear and top, runs very cool and I almost can not hear them.

I think the Xigmatecs follow the color sceme and we can add 4 inch cold cathodes in the front to light up that fan if nessesary.

Thanks Men for your support.
