The H50 working as an intake has not made any difference in my Scout. Most of us using it prefer to exhaust it and it works very well. Some have a push/pull config and others, myself included, use only one fan. My sig rig is current and I get great temps. 26c idle/52-55c full load with my BE 550 unlocked to four core and OC'd to 3.8 in a 22c room. The stock cooling in the Scout should be adequate for your needs though there are some mods you can do if your up to it to improve the airflow. Such as removing the fan grills from the intake and top fan locations. There are several of us who have done it and if you check out my Lian-Li PCI-01 MOD link in my signature I show how to remove the grills. Overall this a great case without going full tower, but like any other it has it's flaws as well, but they are few.

amazing thread!
i recently build my own desktop with this case as well as 5850(tight squeeze) and 955be there is some great info on this thread going to keep me busy for quite some time reading it all

Just wondering : anyone replaced the front intake fan?
As i like the LED idea - its just with the LED on and the lights off you still can not see the LED very well under black outside of it which is kinda a shame.

also thinking about adding another 120mm fan where the 5inch drive bays are, only using one at the moment and maybe adding a second will decrease temps, any ideas what fan i should use? would prefer something that will shine through the black casing so has to be quite bright and need to be blue, kind of have a blue thing going on should really get around to replacing the fans that come with the system with blue one,s but they dont make a difference - you cant see them much

Hey Rockr. I have been trying to unlock my B.E.550 but no go. Had my Vcore up to 1.5 and Vcpu up to 1.35, and nothing. Now what seems Funny is that CPUID showed only 2 cores, Task manager only showed 2 cores.. But when I start up
PC wizard 2010 app. it shows all 4 cores, but the first 2 cores are flexing over 1%, while 3'rd & 4'th sit at -1%... Someone said it my be the mobo. She's a GA-MA-785G-UD3H. Gigabyte. But I was reading that she was a good unlocking mobo. Here a post from someone in another thread that stated what he said:

what i like most about my asus mobo is that i can choose what cores to operate like 0,1,2 or 0,1,3....i hope this help..i'm still using the same motherboard with my 555 and it unlocks perfectly....good luck to all those who wants to unlock...
oh by the way here in our country most of the boards being used is msi and asus..they said it is a great unlocker...

A friend of mine had unlocked his cores on his Gigabyte mobo, but he owns the GA-790XTA-UD4 mobo. Now, I thought at first maybe it was the mobo I had picked. I was also reading in CPU magz. about the board I picked.

I also read it somewear else. Just can't find the artical....
Well, on my next build I'll go back to 'ASUS' mobo's and give them a try again. That's aslo funny because I have been buying ASUS mobo's for years now. It was the only board I really trused. I have tryed MSI's,ASROCK, Biostar. On these boards I have had nothing but bad luck with them. Maybe it was just me buying lemons. This Gigabyte isn't a bad board. She really is a clocker.. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1093943 is were I sit now on my Overclock. And I still have about 220Mhz of headroom to go before she pops. I think once I recieve my Hp50 next week. I'm in hopes that I can push her past 4.0Ghz on that cooler. Well, either way. Swoosh; Thank You bud for the post. Got me thinking a different way (AGAIN).. Like I said, I will most likely give new ASUS mobo's a try on my next build... Thanks Bud.....
SOOO.. I'm at a dead end. If you have any tips sir. Please, Inlighten me...
I think the other 2 cores are just dead and locked off, but I don't know?????
EDIT: I stopped my order on my ok; is a HP50 or an H50???

Well you know the prevailing thought on the locked cores is AMD locked them for a reason or they would be unlocked and the cpu would be a X4 not a X2. So it's a crap shoot. No one should specifically buy a X2 planning on unlocking cores. If your after X4 performance buy a X4. As for your voltages as they apply to core unlocking are not related. Getting the unlocked cores to run stable is. They either unlock or don't. I'm using a MSI 790FX-GD70 which seems to have higher then better ability to unlock cores, however at this point in time I can't recommend this board as I have my 2nd board in RMA. Others and there are many have had no problems so I may have just run out odds in the numbers game of trouble free components. We'll see with the third board. In reference to the Gigabyte board I've never owned one so I have no info with regards to your board. I bet there are several threads on this site pertaining to your board. I'd give those a try. I hope I've been able to answer at least some of your questions.

CWCH50-1 or H50 for short

EDIT I just looked up your board and it has a SB710 south bridge chip. SB750 or higher is required for core unlock. So it seems your out of luck. If you could unlock that option would be in your bios.

Yeah, Rockr.. Your right! Maybe I had a High expectation to unlock them when I shouldnt have. Oh well, my next build, I'm just buying a X4 AMD.. Thanks bud. I trust your word. Gold to me sir....
EDIT: She does Rock-out a good OverClock. 3.1 to 3915.75MHZ stable. If the CPU heats up too much on game-play after about 40 mins or so then she'll pop. Thats why I wanted to do an 'H50' or that new Gigabyte galaxy II 'L' cooling. Just think maybe if I keep her a little more cool with a
good, quick drop-off of temps. she'll stay stable..... Thanks again...

One is glad to be of service. Hold out on that X4 bro and go with the X6. If my third board turns out OK I'll be ready for the X6 with a BIOS update.Yee-aahh!
