I am going BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Danny, just an FYI. The rear fan & front fan both connect to an on/off switch outside the Scout. Don't ask me the best route to changing the colors while keeping the switch operable. I'm inexperienced.

Just an FYI in case you were pre-ordering fans to mod as soon as possible.

**Edit** Forgot to answer your question. Included is: top 140mm, front 140mm, rear 120mm. Front & rear are the 2 that are connected to the switch for on/off red led. Top fan is non-led

I don't know what or how much you'll fry but you will fry. Actually you'll probably trip the thermal break and the system will just quit.
Bri, if you wrote up a sticky worthy thread on PSU, I'd be proud to link it in my sig.

Sorry if this is considered double post, seeing as I posted a reply a few minutes ago. Slowly catching up with the discussions (it's late but I cannot sleep because the wife's sister is over and ..well.. lets just say its not 'cool & quiet' in my home)

I had to learn about it the hard way, on the mean streets of Reno, oh sorry thought I was somewhere else. Crash, you ever heard the joke "Reno is so close to hell you can see Sparks"?
I, in fact, did get the velvet bag & if it makes you feel any better, its not that plush. The outside material is velvet, but inside is just like the material on any duffel bag. I'm betting you can find the same bag for pennies and slap a corsair logo on it.

I'm in Las Vegas, and although I wasn't asked, I've never heard that before.

I know someday the pump in my Ch-50 is going to give up the ghost where on air if the fan dies you can just replace the fan and keep on trucking and I'll have to replace my whole unit.
lol, don't get me wrong (either) Rockr, but were you half asleep when posting this? I understood your point(s).. both of them, but I had to read it 3 times because half way through you sort of swapped sides. No biggie, and not at all flaming in any sort. I just found it amusing that you begin by feeling excessive fans eat too much wattage & then I feel like at the end you dread the pump replacement.

My apologies for the edit. If you PM me on how to do this I'd be glad to. One of the things I noticed during my 3 day study binge is that there is no guide to PSU's on overclock.net

When you say "how to do it", are you referring to how to write up a "sticky worthy thread"? If so, usually its up to a moderator and/or admin by choice based on how well written & thorough your info is. Typically they are pretty long & detailed. If you did, however, write it up, I would definitely support it.

Good example of a thorough, "sticky worthy" thread/OP by Shadow.

Hey ! Just got this case and transplanted my system !

At present I have q6600, 6gb DDR2, nvidia 9800GT, Asus maximus II gene.

Cpu on air at 3.5Ghz but switching to an H50 soon and replacing gpu with a nice gtx285 or 295 if I can squeeze it in

Got a pair of silent eagle 1000 fans on the panel which are also keeping it nice and cool and moved the red 120mm fan to the front below the optical drive and put a generic exhaust fan in the rear waiting to be replaced by the H50...

I second that Bri. if you write one, I would definitely support it as well.
Ok, I'm real not that much of a advanced modder in anyway. So being in here with you guys that have way more experience them me is helping Big time.
You have some good post's Bri, so again I would support your writing...

Yeah you misunderstood. What I was meaning is I'll never go back to an air cooled cpu cooler even though I have a greater degree of difficulty of replacement when my movable parts wear out and the only advantage air has in my mind is when the fan goes, just pop on another and there ya go. You're fixed! Whereas when my pump goes I have to replace the whole unit and will gladly do so to avoid the noise issues I have with air. That's why I love my HD5770 over my HD3850 (besides the obvious fact it kicks the 3850's ass). The only cure for the noise the 3850 makes was to filch my old Zalman ZF700 from my wife until my new stuff came in. Even at an idle with 25% fan load the 3850 sounded like a hair dryer under a pillow. Drove me nuts! The 5770 however is quiet as church mouse until there's work to do then it gets noisy and with a rather satisfying mighty roar, but I can handle that. It's proportional to the job it's doing. So that's what I was referring to. Noise vs. performance vs. cost. Again IMHO , air can never win. I appreciate and applaud those who take on the air challenge. That's awesome when they achieve that goal, but I bet their system sounds like a mini hovercraft setting out and if that's their bag, I got nothing but respect. I just don't understand it is all.

As to the excessive wattage I meant why waste the funds on all that noisiness with all those extra fans, when you could upgrade to a better board or cpu or video card to do the same job and still have peace of mind in a quiet computing environment. Like I said in an earlier post; after 13 years in loud hard rock bands my ears are super sensitive to high frequency noise and believe me when I say the noise can make you tired.
