With the Cooler Master stock LED fans, how much do you see the black surrounding the fan contrasted with the LED's? I was wondering if it would be a better look trying to find clear fans with green LED's....

Their stock LED fans are clear. I do happen to have CM R4s in my case and the LEDs aren't too powerful. I'd get clear fans. The stock fans have some pretty weak LEDs too. They're hard to see through the front mesh.

I'm not too worried about having to turn the LED's off, but thanks for the heads up I didn't think about the LED switch not working with new fans...

Would you have any recommendations on good brands for clear green LED fans, I saw some Antec 120mm ones that looked good but I thought I'd ask the experts

Where will you be ordering from?

Regardless of what you'd say I'd recommend these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811998122

They have a transparent green frame so not like fully transparent. If you really want em to be clear and capable of controlling the speed you can pay twice as much for the Antec tri-cools. I've used the Apevia ones and they feel high quality and aren't too loud.

Also, the front fan on the Storm Scout is 140mm. I have no idea how good this fan is but assuming the specs are accurate it's much better than the stock one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835234002

That looks great dude, thats exactly what I was looking for. I definitely do want to replace the 140 up front, and that one looks like as good a replacement as any.

I was also wondering if you guys knew of people doing the nvidia stacker style of side panel of 4 fans strapped together but put it onto different cases?

Oh yeh I'll probably just be going through newegg, unless you knew of cheaper alternatives, seems like the shipping cost is what gets you, although they do have volume discounts....

I've never seen anyone do that yet but it'd be pretty cool. You should fill in your system specs here - http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem

Those fans all that noise levels over 20. I can just accept the stock fans but higher than that would not be good in my preference.

I remember you mentioning that. The stock fans are like inaudible to me. Is your comp right next to your ear?

There's a thread asking how much dB is tolerable and pretty much everyone said 30 dB.

Oh, and I'd recommend against putting a side panel fan on. The difference in temps will be minimal and the vibrations from it are a bit loud.

I didn't have any vibrations from having a window fan on. But I agree that it wouldn't help out temps that much though.

Ah, well even with the quietest fans I have(13db) on em they're still much louder than if I screwed em onto the case.
