your crossfire setup might be raising your temps. try configuring your H50 rad as an intake in the front or back of your case.

im loading at 49-51 c with my 965 at 4ghz @1.54 volts. Im using AS5.

I'm running: CM Storm Scout, i7 920, Evga X58 3X SLI, 6x2GB Patriot Viper 1600mhz

Question:
Should I remove the Top fan mounted on the Scout Case and put in the CM V8
or
Should I keep the Top fan mounted on the Scout Case and try put in the Xigmatek Dark Knight

Which would be better if I'm planning on Overclocking the i7 920??? If anyone have any other HSF to suggest instead, Please Do!!! Sorry for ALL the Noob questions...Thanks in Advance Guys!!!
Ok, I have to object to saying the Scythe will fit. What most people who post on this board don't take into account is the way an i-7 motherboard is set up. I have 2 Evga boards and I just tried installing a CM Hyper 212 and it's dimensions are pretty close to the Scythe. Look it up if you need to but I could not run either the top fan nor put a fan in the top spot on the window.
As for overclocking the i-7 920 it's not hard to do, esp if you have a DO stepping chip, the differences will be how much you can cool it will make a difference in how high you can clock it and the chip itself has it's own limit's on stability. We have a guy on the Digital Storm forums that calls his chip the Drunken Monkey because they were able to clock it to 4.7Ghz on air cooling alone.
The other thing you absolutely must pay attention to is that cooler that takes the heat off the Voltage regulator. I had the most problems with that, not with the processor. I had to send my system back to DS to get it changed and they still have it. My processor was clocked to 4.0Ghz and it ran like crazy with pretty cool temps on water cooling but the Vreg was up to 109C at times and Evga said that is not acceptable. DS argued with me that this wasn't possible but now they are paying for half the upgrades I wan't because they found out it is true that the board couldn't stay cool the way the system was set up.
I gotta go but if you need more info I should be back late afternoon or evening.

If you want to use a specific different cooler, I'd suggest to check the max dimensions in the very first post:

CPU Cooler Specifications

With 2 Side Panel Fans Installed. 120x120x25
(146 mm.) CPU to Top Side Panel Fan Distance.

With Only the Bottom Side Fan installed
171 mm. CPU to Side Panel Distance NO Fan installed on the Top of the Side Panel

Heatsink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 169mm is the optimum size range for this case.

Top of the case to the Bottom or Vertical dimensions of the case should not exceed 120mm. Side to side dimensions 140 mm.

Example of too big is the Cooler Master V10 (L) 236.5 x (W) 129.6 x (H) 161.3 mm
Its not the height or the width of this cooler but it is 10 mm too tall from top to bottom.

Scout Info.
Quote:
well, if this is what you're talking about, its 133mm wide, which means it can only be mounted horizontally (fan blowing out the top). I've got a TRUE, and its too tall when mounted to the fan blows out the back, the top fan gets in the way. I think the cooler needs to be under 120mm wide to be mounted vertically.


I'd suggest keeping the top fan if possible since it's the best way to relieve your PC off of hot air




Cheers mate! I'll defenitely buy it now ^^

Thanks!!!!

Does anyone know the specs of the top fan? I can't find any details on it and this case exhausts like an old man blowing out birthday candles. I know the weak 44 CFM rear fan has to go but I still can't figure out if the top fan is part of the problem.

Also, does anyone have experience using a 120x120x38 fan for the rear or top exhaust? Were there any clearance issues?

Nope.

I think the top is a 140mm If I remeber not a 120.

The top is 140 but it has screw holes for 120 as well. Obviously 140 is better with noise but I like to keep my options open. I'm more concerned with its rated CFM and how thick it is. Btw nice Yates. They look great with the Storm Scout.

Yea I was getting myself confused.

The top fans thickness is @ 140x140x25.

I would go with some of the higher rated R4's 120mm's all around.
I'm trying to find its specs.

Thanks on the compliment.

Might be the top 140mm

But doesn't feel like 60 CFM to me.

That fan looks close, it might be it. I don't think any of the case fans reach their rated CFM. I breathe harder than the top fan blows. Ok I'm exaggerating but it definitely isn't 60 CFM, nor is the front intake fan. That's why I am looking into changing them for something better.

The R4 fans in the case stock are not these same R4's http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-063-_-Product

Notice the blades are different and they are not a smoked color.


The fans in the case are more along the lines of these CM fans with Red LEDs
