Yep. Its a hassle but it will go in. Trust me I faced the same issue. I was baffled to see that my drive did not fit in. It just needs abit of extra force. Also the space is narrow so keep the sides perfectly aligned with it otherwise it will not go in.

You guys are saying they are silent!!!!! have you got hearing problems. It sounds like a hovercraft. Ok I am being over dramatic but its clearly hearable. You can hear the air moving. Huuuuuuuuuuuf

then get some new fans or some earplugs. i dont know, maybe you got a bad fan or something in yours. i heard the scythe s-flex are good, and ive got yate loons in mine, which i love

I do remember the stock fans being about average tho, not that loud. i only changed mine cause i wasnt using the LEDs anyways and the yates have higher cfm.

and my hearing is fine! im a pilot, and during my last annual physical, the doc said i had the best hearing he'd seen in years, that i could hear a conversation between ants! so there!

When I was in the USAF I could hear a Rabbit Peeing on cotton from a 100 yards. And I could read the Tag off a Gnats Axx at 12 meters.
Now my wife tells me I never hear her and I can't work on a Motherboard without 3x reading glasses. Age. It sucks.

I think I'm the only person who read these 52 pages from front to back, you guys have got some great setups. I'm looking to get the scythe mugen 2 (probably for the same reasons some of you already own it), and I know that it fits in the case with some mobos. But my motherboard's CPU location is VERY high. I'm just curious if anyone has a guess as to whether it would still fit. Here's a pic for you fellas:



And here's the build in progress:

I don't think it'll fit unless you remove your top fan. I have one and mine is about 1mm away from touching my top fan and mine has average cpu placement. BUT...I think they mount in intels differently than AMDs so... it may fit with the top fan. No idea though. check out the Mugen 2 thread in the air cooling section. They'll know.

Also, I've read through this whole thread....but only because I was here pretty much since it started.

Thanks for the reply Since the CPU is so high I figure the top fan would really help in cooling so I'd like to keep it. Perhaps a N to S configuration would work? If not, can someone recommend a good 1366 HS that would work?

I've got my TRUE mounted N to S (only way it fits) and I think it only cools "ok". My stock e6600 sits around 36 idle, of course it's summer in Florida and my ambient is around 27, so take that for what it's worth. I've also got that second intake mounted in the drive bay that I don't think I'm taking full advantage of with it set up like that.

I believe the Dark Knight will fit mounted vertically (and also, and is supposed to be one of the top coolers out there right now). When I re-do my setup in a few months, I think that's what I'll be getting\\

EDIT: looking at my board, your board, and K10's, the 2 intel (mine and yours) definitely have the the socket sitting higher on the board than the AMD. I've never noticed that before. I know I've seen a DK in a Scout somewhere in this thread, but now I don't know if it was an intel or AMD...

I have a pretty simple question. What size did you guys use to sleeve the front panel cables? Also their length. I am purchasing this case soon, along with the rest of my build, but right now I am purchasing everything I need, such as the sleeving.

Also seven9st surfer, how many ft of sleeving did you end up using for your case mod?
Thanks in advance for all the help.

I ended up using about 45' of the cheap PET sleeving. Also some techflex Clean Cut, maybe about 20'. I used the Clean Cut for everything that I couldn't get the PET around. That means the front panel USB and the 6-pin PCI-e wires that have 2 wires coming out of the connector (the ones that adapt to the 8-pin configuration).

As for the rest of the front panel, I ended up taking out the audio and e-SATA cables (was never going to use them) and stashing the fan LED controller wires in the front bay (I replaced the LED fans with non-LED ones). So the USB and power/LED headers were the only ones I have plugged in.

Only thing wrong with the PET is that it's kinda see-through, as you can see with my SATA power cables. I actually kinda like the way it looks, though, just a hint of color. But that's personal taste.

Here's the links to the stuff I used:
1/8" PET cheap stuff
1/8" Techflex Clean Cut

If they have it in stock, I've heard the Murdermod kits are the best you can get.

damn my room is so hot. Sweating.

The case is like a damn heater. What shall I do.

My 4890 idles at 60'C and I dont have any side fans. Even the plastic is still on.
