Here is a good alternative... Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

As an owner of a CoolerMaster Scout, I'm going to recommend against the V8. It will be an UNUSUALLY tight squeeze getting that cooler in your case. Specifically, the top 140 mm fan in your case will be dangerously close (if not touching it) to being pressed against the top edge of your V8. Due to space constraints I went with...

For my Scout. I played it safe... I wasn't going to be doing any extreme OC'n so my N520 is plenty for me. You ARE space limited by your case choice so choose wisely.

The orignal plea was for that reason but after reading the review on the cool master hyper 212 plus it shows it doesnt cool nearly as good. Also reading other reviews about the v8 and strom scout people also said the cooler has to be moved in the correct position for it to fit right the way the v8 face's makes a difference also stated in a review. The problem with reviews is there not always legit but if figured everyone here would have more ideas or help.

Everyone has already helped a lot. I will be posting a lot more on here to help others also.
