If so, are they very loud?
The fans you linked are the low-quality fans, they have R4 in the name but the real R4 series are about $9 each and are much better. They are probably on the same level as the fans that come in our cases from the factory...basically, they're OK but nothing fantastic.

The better R4 series fans run at the same 19 decibels as those, but push 90cfm of air which is 50cfm more than the ones you linked, that's insane! I believe this makes them the best 120mms out there. I ordered 8 when I ordered my case...6 for the case(5 plus one custom mounted in the 5.25" bay), 2 for the CPU cooler. The 120mm and two 140mm that came with my case are thrown in a box in my closet for spares. Yes, the 140mm fans that come with the case can be replaced with 120mm, there's two sets of screw holes.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103063

You can get them in blue, red and green. Don't remember if any other colors are available. The ones I linked are red, you'll have to search newegg for the other colors available.

I *highly* recommend running all CM R4 series 90cfm/19db 120mm fans in these cases, it's a frickin' windstorm in mine and under load my temps aren't much higher than they are at idle which is awesome. The lighting is a definite plus. I also highly recommend getting filters for the side panel fans, or making your own. Those are the only intake fans on the case that aren't filtered, and you'd be surprised how dirty the inside of your case will get just from those two fans...especially the CPU heatsink which is in the wind-path of the top side panel fan.

I finally finished gutting my old jeantech case and filling my nice shiny new scout! well chuffed! and perfectly to plan, my CPU and GPU are running over 10degrees cooler! YEY! Can I be a member now?

Anyway, heard I had to post a little about me and some pictures of my beast!

So me, I'm a graphic designing, basketball playing, downhill mountain biking, gamer, in the UK.

PC is:
CPU: Q6600
RAM: 4gb
GPU: 8800gt
HDD: 1x 320gb 2x 500gb 1x 2.5" 120gb all SATA
PSU: 750w
(soon to change, the scout was the 1st on the wishlist)

Changed the case fans to:
2x 140mm in front (waiting on LED fans)
2x 120mm blue LED in side,
1x 120mm blue LED rear
& 1x 180mm blue LED in top (fits in the 140mm fittings)

PICTURES!!!! (Sorry the pictures of the full case didn't come out very well so will take some more tonight, for now you'll have to make do with my close up shots )

Very nice.

Part of my recent xoxide order included eight new CM R4 blue LED 120mm fans, because I decided at the last minute that I wanted to switch from red to blue on my case. Just gotta find the pin tools, some spools of wire, one of those screw blocks to run all the fan wiring to, a few black wire sleeving kits and I'll be ready to do the full wire-tuck.

Thanks

I decided I was going black with blue LEDs before I found the scout, was originally looking at an Antec 900.

I did think it would be cool to hook up the LED's to a temperature gauge so if its nice an cool the blue LED's are on if it gets a bit warm in there the red ones come on.... figured that was a little complicated tho so saving it for a rainy day!

Where can I get the black sleeving? I really need to sort out the large quantity of wires rolling around in my case!

Well where do you live?
In Europe i tihnk http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve.htm is the best site in USA or Australia i have no idea maybe some others can help for those areas.
And to quote a fellow member of another forum "Go big on Sleeving" cause he spent like 2meters of sleeving just on the end of the 24-pin ATX.

Live in UK. Will google it when I get home... to be fair that was a little lazy of me to ask rather than just looking myself

Luckily all my PSU cables came sleeved. Just need some sleeving for the fan cables and the bunch of sata cables i have floating around.
