I'll take a look at mine tomorrow too.

I asked because one of the pictures posted within the last couple pages had the grill removed (looked to be cut out). I've been searching for a 140mm fan with better airflow, but the stock fan is rated at 60cfm, which should be decent. So rather than bother with trying to get a high pressure fan and putting it under that same restrictive grill, I'd like to just take the stupid grill out. I don't see the point of having a grill under a grill anyway - it's amazing that fan can push any air through that maze.

This is the thing. You always have to sacrifice noise for air Force CFM. the more turbulence that a fan generates the more noise its gonna make. I think that apples to apples. If your looking for cooling power then that fan is right.
I just wonder if those openings around the housing are suckers or blowers. If they suck in air then that would be a perfect app. for this case since there is a space issue with it.

I have to say this... Except for the Excalibur I believe that the CFM on the Cooler master fans are intentionally over-rated. I do like my CM fans but I don't believe that the top fan is producing that velocity with that noise level.

CM rates there dba's at 7volts. A lot of companies do this. I think it's a little underhanded since they do not say that it's at 7 volts. Pretty misleading.

Sorry and thanks for understanding.

Education should always come first. Good luck this semester.

Hello Everyone! I haven't posted in years but I'm building a new machine so here I am. I see you have a fantastic thread here on the Cooler Master Storm Scout and this will be my bible over the next few days. I thought I would start by possibly lending a hand myself.

How many of you guys have removed the inner grill over the top fan? Seems to be extremely restrictive. What did you use to remove it?
AyeYo, I have already cut out the top and front fan grills on the case. (it's the only thing I've done so far) In order to do this I used my trusty dremel and a little trick I learned from mnpctech.com. Here is a link to the YouTube video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iMiH...ayer_embedded#

Basically I did both by hand and it turned out quite well. I also suggest anyone cutting metal with the dremel try using the EZ Lock Mandrel and wheels. They are hands down light years better than the standard cutoff wheels, they won't break and last way way longer. Here is a link for this item:

http://www.amazon.com/Dremel-EZ406-C...4523444&sr=8-1

Here are a couple of pics showing the holes:






And just for fun, if your ever wondering what you could possibly use that Martini glass for when your not getting hammered....



Ok, gotta get back to work. Cutting a new side window today!

Some nice holes there dude, makes the airflow much stronger.

I do not recommend using a whole saw when cutting out the steel mesh. Once the teeth of the saw hits the little holes the saw wants to grab and bind. I mean you can do it, it is just very difficult and you risk bending the metal. For this I recommend a Dremel. It will cut though the mesh very quickly.
