Hey folks,

I recieved my 2 x Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000s today and I plan to fit them tonight. (Im in the middle of a foldathon, so it may be the weekend)

I will let you know how it goes.

looser101, I know you said they where not anything special but I would like to see how they perform. Given the crappy fans Im using now, its gotta be an improvement.

The fall back plan is, if they dont impress me, to order in some CM R4s and use the Ultra Kazes as shrouds... nothing like recycling

Wish me luck

I thought I was being smart, and I could get just a touch more pressure and a better mount. Bad idea. Don't do it. To summarize:

Wow that's kind of a kicker. Perhaps a warning for AMDers with plastic backplates. My AMD backplate was 100% steel and its threaded parts protruded up into the holes of the mainboard (iirc they were flush with the front face of the board) so it couldn't put more than a minute force on the board itself because it bottoms out on the plate's protrusions.

Never have been a fan of the plastic backplate. Buddy of mine has an am2 board that is bent to a boggling curve because of the stock retention clip on the cpu. Miracle is, it still works.

If you look closely at the Scythe UK fans you will see that on the motor side there is a big gap between the blades and what will be your rad. On the intake side of the fan there is virtually no gap. I think that because of the gap you can get away with not using a shroud on the push side. On the pull side it's a must... 2x25mm shrouds if you can fit them. I only tested it as a pull fan with the 1 and 2 shrouds. Performance wise it was in same class as R4s or High speed GTs, hence I didn't pursue any further testing. They are crazy cheap here at only $10CDN, and I drive by that store every day. It's tempting to go buy some for use as shrouds. Good luck and let us know how it goes. Definitely interested on with and without the push fan.

Thanks for that.

I plan on using a 25mm shroud for both push and pull fans. My rad is attached to the outside of my case, so I have room to play internally. (the case, that is...)

Whoa... I wish they where "crazy cheap" here. They are $Aus22 each here - damn those import and GST taxes R4s are like $Aus19 each.

Oh well, like they say,,, dont die wondering.
