What is going on inside your case?
The stock Storm Scout fans should be doing an excellent job moving warm air out of your case.
If you're having some heat issues I'm not sure even adding high performance fans is going to fix the situation.

The root cause of the problem needs to be identified before solutions are considered. Higher capacity fans are always a good idea, but it appears that the CPU/heatsink assembly needs to be examined.

Start out by re-seating the CPU/heatsink assembly. Then carefully monitor temps with RealTemp or similar programs.

You need a better CPU cooler, I recommend the Noctua NH-D14.

You said you bought Coolermaster Scythe R4 fans? Did you mean Coolermaster R4's? Those are pretty decent if so, so you are good there.

Any chance you can return those CM R4 case fans?
You would have been a lot better off buying an aftermarket CPU cooler instead of the extra case fans.

But since your motherboard won't allow you to overclock the E6300 I'm just not sure it makes sense to but a cooler.

As long as you can buy a CPU cooler that will move up into your next build I guess it's OK to grab one. Ideally, you'd want a cooler that would fit a AM3/AM3+ or 1156/1366 upgrade. We don't know enough about the next 1155 motherboard but we can hope the 1156 coolers would fit that as well.

Your Storm Scout case is a good example of something that will last through a couple upgrade cycles.

CM Hyper 212+ or CM V6 would be options for you to look at.

I get excellent results with my original Coolermaster Hyper 212 and the price is good.

Here is a link to a recent Tom's Hardware article with useful information about 10 popular cpu heatsinks:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lga-1156-heatsink,2...

I know the article states Intel LGA 1156 heatsinks but just about all of them are also compatible with Intel LGA 1366 cpu's

Here is a link to a very good web site with more useful information about cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.
