I also already have ONE, R4 Red LED mounted on the side panel of my Storm Scout, blowing directly onto my Radeon 5850. It is strong! It's pushing a lot of air, fast! It made my Radeon 5850 drop temps by about 5 degrees...

I took my side panel off last night and just set it against the side of the case but I didn't unplug that R4 or turn the machine off... I just took the panel off to check something...

Then before I put the side panel back on, I went in to get something from my kitchen and when I came back... That R4 had pushed the panel over onto its side and pulled its own plug out from the motherboard! LOL

So they do move a lot of air!
I just bought 4 of those and a cool fan switch with red led to match my case. heh

It goes red when on the high speed function.

And my 5850 should be getting here tomorrow afternoon

The Newest Addition to EXODUS: XFX 5770
Upgraded from ATI Radeon 3870










Since GPU installations are pretty much 'plug & play' I think pictures are enough for this update. Don't let me down-play this upgrade though, I am THRILLED to have a new GPU!

EDIT: Quick FYI.. I couldn't get the "tool-less" clips to fit correctly, so I used the thumb-screws. Any one else run into this problem & find an alternate solution?

If CM missed when making the storm were two things
1. Making the gpu bay bigger
2. making those Add-in slot tool-less actually useful... they break all the time.

Awesome Clee!! Welcome to the XFX owners club!!

Don't you love the little door hanger? LMAO when I got my 5870 and that was in there. Make sure you register that baby within 30 days so you can get the double lifetime warranty.

Heck yeah, when I installed Mindy's 5850 in her Scout, the tool-less plastic things, well one went flying across the room and the other just plain busted out. I used good old fashioned case screws, the ones with the combination hex head that a small socket will fit over & in the middle there's a phillips head. It hasn't moved since, even though I've dropped the case a few times. Oooops, don't tell Mindy. It's a Scout, it's rugged.


Oh, I just popped in for an Nvidia Alert! Seems someone has been busy, Tiger Direct has Galaxy brand GTX 470's & GTX 480's in stock! Get there soon 'cause I'm sure they'll be gone soon.

Also, I've noticed a significant drop in the number of available old style Nvidia cards. Tiger Direct has a special on combo's of higher Nvidia cards and 9800's for Phsyx. It's very hard to find GT 285's. GTS 295's, even the Gtx 275's are kinda hard to get, at least in stock and the good brand names. Also there seems to be a run on ATI 5890's and ATI 5870's. I guess I'm not the only one that has seen the less than steller arrival of the new Nvidias and decided to go for the ATI cards.

I am using Noctua 140mm. Very pleased with air flow & dBA, technical spec wise. Also, very pleased with the breeze I feel & the noise level, for real-life hands on experience.

Obviously, there are fans with higher RPM/Air Flow, but I'm not a fan of high dBA, personally.

Thanks Bri!

I made sure to register my serial & product activation code (from the door-hanger) immediately after installation was completed.

Are the individual clips for the tool-less plastic (rear panel) individually removable?
