Oh man the Scout’s stock fans have become a sort of holy grail for me you don’t even understand. Specifically I’m referring to the 140mm and 120mm red LED fans with the separate LED on/off wiring.

A CM rep told me straight up you can’t buy these fans in the U.S. So I ask what if I break one and need a new one? He says I need to file an RMA lols!! I've had people from pc parts stores contact CM about these fans and they get no response. I just got an email from CM parts in Chino, CA, and they say no dice on the fans. So let's go outside the U.S. haha ...

They do have 120mm red and blue versions of our fans but sold overseas in Asia. A CM parts store based in the Netherlands sells 120mm blue ones with an LED on/off switch which I’m assuming you can just hack off and tap into the Scout switch. So what about other manufacturers??

Enermax sells the Everest fan in 120mm with an on/off switch. But these fans are rather pricey because of a temp sensor that most people say is ineffective. Lots of complaints about airflow too. They will be selling 140mm versions of a different fan with LED on/off.

So as you can tell, this has been like my moby dick and I’m the LED fan on/off wiring captain ahab lols.

Glad to see you were able to fit that 5870.
I myself have no money to afford one but good to see that I can fit 5850 or 470 (within my price range) very easily.

Going to order the yate loons this week... Might even replace my front fan as well ;3

are the medium speed too loud?

thanks mr-Charles. Nice of ya.

Well waiting for rest of items to arrive from ups then gonna tear down rig, put 4850x2 in there somehow, and then try to fix temps on H50. The H50 has got to be more the 5C degrees better then a small 92mm cooler....atleast i hope. top temps last night with h50 after 10 mins of IBT maximum was 51c while idle is right around same 30-31 with quick dip to 29c...something it didnt do before.

before i rip it apart, i wanna get input from u guys, this is how i have my airflow setup. side intake, front bottom exhaust, rear intake and top exhaust.

Take the Scout, it might be equal too the 922 but as a 15 year old LAN is a part of life and the scout is waaaaaay easier too carry than the HAF, trust me my friend has the HAF case and it's Huuuuuuge

I used to have that same case, i had to mod the heck out of it to get any air flow. I cut out the back 120mm fan grill, made a 120mm hole in front of the hdd cage instead of the 2 80mm that normally go there. Then i cut out the blowhole from 80mm to 120mm which made the top 5.25 bay unusable lol. I also made a new window with a 120mm hole for the vid cards. I would totally go with the scout, haf, or sniper. I love my scout and for air cooling it works fabulous but my next case is going to be an corsair obsidian or a silverstone TJ07 for water hehe. I highly recommend the scout!

IMO You can't go wrong with any of those 3, so I think it would be your personal preferences that will be the decider.

Prior to purchasing the Scout, I also was in-between Scout & Sniper. The main reason I did not include the HAF in my decision is because the HAF is the overall visual design. Silver interior, no side window, and the big "HAF" logo on the side of the case isn't my style.

Before you continue reading my reply, note that I love the Scout. I will do my very best to not be biased though.

Cost: At the time of my purchase decision, the Scout was priced at $79.99 with free shipping and a $10 MIR Card. The Sniper was $139.99 I believe.

Design: Scout and Sniper, to me, have a very similar design, of course being from the same "Storm" line, you can think of the 2 as brothers. The largest differences that stood out to me were the side panels, and the bulky size of the Sniper.

I prefer having a visual window, and I prefer a sleeker front/side design of the Scout. I do, however, like the Snipers front panel. The many angles give it a robotic, muscular feel. Whereas the Scout is flat, simple, and sleek. If you get to know me long enough, I am a "Less is more" type of person, so the choice for my taste was obvious in choosing the Scout over the Sniper in the design department.

Efficiency: Like I said before, 2 cases, brothers from the same mother. They seem to run quiet like each other as far as air flow and access. The Sniper (I think) has a build in fan speed controller (or what looks like one), foot pedals that stick out on both sides, and 2 holes in the back for cables running out of the case (not sure when that will be needed). Scout also has the front I/O available at the top, 2 carry handles at the top, and for the most part, looks like a sleeper with most of its utilities well hidden.


Again, these are my opinions & I would think you'll be happy with either the Scout / Sniper / HAF, but in my recent experience the HAF was not in the running. That doesn't mean I think the HAF isn't a good case, but just not the case for me.

This how I have mine Danny. I figure the 140mm on top sucks up the extra heat that my build up top. I'm cutting out all my metel screening
this week-end. Front,Back & Top..... Edit: How the wife do??? Good I hope. Good Luck!
