I will be sure to post a reply when the project is done, with images, so you can see if you would like me to mail you a piece. Stay tuned...
Sweet, looking forward to it!

The price is high for a case fan, so I'm going to have to purchase 1 by 1, starting with the 140mm. This one will be mounted at the top of the case.

I'll be sure to post an un-boxing if anyone is interested, and of course pictures of the completed installation.

What, did no one see my pics where I updated all of Mindy's fans?

Attachment 146611
This is how it looks with the Noctua on top. It drastically increased airflow through the case and out the top. I can now feel a breeze a full 2ft over the top of the blowhole. With the stock fan I felt nada, zip, nix, nine, der bahnhof baby!
Of course increasing the flow with the Enermax fan in the 5.25 drive bays and the new 140mm in the bottom front of the case may help that flow.
About the CH-50 cooler. I don't know who Ping is or where he got his info but the H-50 cooler does not contain water, it is Glycol based. Doubt me, cut yours open and taste it, better yet have Ping taste it. It is not water!! I knew it was made by Asetek, I think Kev_b was one of the first, if not the first to install one in a Scout on this thread. However, to say which way it should be mounted is a load of garbage. I've run it both ways and it's only 2c different for me. However, I have seen numerous posts to improve it's cooling including a stronger fan, a push/pull system, a fan shroud system and even taking the thing apart, using a rubbermaid bowl for a reservoir and mounting the radiator outside the case.
I don't know what the big deal is, Corsair doesn't make a lot of the things they put thier name to. They don't make some of thier PSU's, they don't make some of thier RAM chips, they don't make many of the parts on thier flagship case, the 800D. So what Ping!! It doesn't mean they aren't going to enforce thier own warranty if you don't do something thier way.

Oh, BTW, I mounted the Noctua with no limiting resistors (they provide 2) and it's still one of the quietest fans I've ever used, for that price it either performs or I return it.

Jumping off my soapbox now.

Oh, I guess what really set me off is the remark he made about heat coming off the "gfx card", the heat hitting the rad and causing condensation, then condensation getting into the system and blowing something. I don't know about Y'all but my "graphics card" blows heat out the back of the case, that's one of the reasons I like the reference cooling design. Second if you have a radiator in your system and the fluid (no matter what it be unless it's refridgerant), is so cold that heat hitting it causes condensation then you're in for more trouble than your computer getting toasted. You're probably in a place where the humidity inside is more than 49% and if that's so you better get a de-humidifier because your place is going to mold and mildew up and anything electrical in your house, apartment, whatever will soon fry!!

And for whatever idot took that new Evga board and super cooled it with liquid nitrogen so much that when they were done it had cakes of ice around the processor mounts then you can't rely on a single benchmark or review they do on it because most of us can't cool our systems like that!

Jumping off my soapbox again, now.

No. The 1 gig is not the issue as my friend who this card was going to only has a 17" monitor and anything over 512 would not make a difference anyway. That's why I wanted the 256-bit interface for the faster memory speed. Sure I can still get the Sapphire 3850 agp online, but for like $120. I guess I wasn't clear enough in my first post, Newegg won't give me the subsitution. They are insisting on the refund. That's good and all but it leaves screwed with no card for this system.

WAYYYYY
Me too!!
They opened up my foot becuase it had a painful bump on it that wouldn't heal. I heard what they were saying because I had a spinal block, my blood pressure shot through the roof when I heard them, so they gave me a general that kept me out 12 hours past the surgery. They didn't biopsy the bits they took out of my foot. They told me that I should ETS out of the army so I could see a good civilian doctor. So I ETS'ed. It then took 2 years of seeing doctors to find one that would open it up and take a sample. Within 3 days of that, they came back with the finding that I had one of the rarest forms of cancer in the world. My doctor didn't trust the pathologists here in Reno, so she sent it to a friend in Presidio San Fransisco, he confirmed I had one of the rarest forms of cancer in the world.
That was the day before Thanksgiving, 2 days after Christmas they amputated my foot which triggered a case of another rare disorder called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and one of the top 10 worst cases of yet another rare disorder known as Narcolepy. Merry Christmas Brian!!
Then we started on a looooooonnnnnnnnnggggg journey known as lets get the military to accept thier responsibility. Oh, we can't find your records. Oh, you never were in the hospital in Germany. Oh, here's your records but you were never seen for anything involving your foot. That one blew me away, 6 1/2 years on active duty as a Combat Engineer and there was never anything wrong with my feet, not even a blister!! Next was oh, you were in the hospital but it was for a "personality disorder". Come on, me a personality disorder?? Then it was, oh we're sorry, somehow a guy not of your race, religion, place of birth, name, social security number or rank got mixed in with your medical records.
Then I mentally and physically collapsed and couldn't do anything but sleep for 16-20 hours a day.
Then many many years later I went back to work, got fired for not being able to maintain a regular schedule, then got hired by the Nevada Unemployment Office as a Job Services counsellor the same day. Where I met Mindy, who gave me the will to live again. Who got me that diagnosis as one of the top 10 worst Narcoleptics in the U.S. ever. Then the State asked me to resign because I couldn't keep a regular schedule.. Wait, back up here, wasn't that why they hired me?? Mindy prodded pleaded and begged for me to get on SSDI and SSI (guys I'm 5ft 9" and at this point I weighed 135lbs). Then Mindy got sick and couldn't go back to work.
Somewhere along the line Mindy found a lawer who used to be a Lt. Colenel in the Army and was also highly professed in disability law and he agreed to take my case Pro Bono. Two years ago they finally admitted that I was 40% service connected disabled due to an amputated foot. Gee, they found all that paperwork that was "missing" that said I was in the hospital. It gets good here though, they were only responsible from the time I filed the second claim, they weren't responsible for all the rest of the time I was missing a foot due to the neglegnce of an army doctor!! AGGGGGHHHH!
Finally, last fall a judge from a veterans review board finally said, yes, he was disabled from the time the doctor opened him up in the army and failed to do a biopsy and it was that doctors fault that I lost my foot! The rest of it's my problem though so I can get treatment at the V.A. here in Reno but I also have to have regular supplemental health insurance. Just like Danny I'm paying $230- or (no, definitly more) more a month to get what the army doctors caused.
I REALLY WISH Rockr was Pres and I got $50,000 a year for what they did to me, starting with knocking me out of a perfectly good military career.

Sorry for the book guys but I haven't been able to tell anybody outside my family that story.
So Danny, we too have a Regional V.A. medical center here in Reno. It's one of the best in the country, people come from the middle of California to be seen here. The jobs aren't so hot unless you're in the medical field and then you're in very high demand. There is also colleges and UNR and lots of educational opportunities, if you get the itch to live in the wild west!
Right Clee!

Thanks E and Bri, but if you really want to vote for someone, vote for the gentleman Dr. from Texas. You know who I'm referring to, the guy the media villified and ignored in the last race who in my opinion was the only guy to make sense. I don't want to spark a political debate that's why I'm not naming names.

I just figure if you're going to be put in harms way just because you were told to whatever you believe in, you oughta have a free ride when your done.

Isn't the Tuniq the round squirell cage thingy Therapy? has?
Oh, sorry for the edit Boss!
Guys, if you want to know Evga, I kinda have a connection over there. Yes, the Tuniq will fit on this board. Know this though, these mounts are higher than other boards so it might not allow you to put fans in the window. It will not short this board out though like the Hyper 212+ does on the Evga X58 boards.
