I got both fans attached now. I used the screws from the AMD mounting kit for my Noctua U98B. They fit perfectly. Only issue is now my stupid case won't close properly as the external fan interferes with the side panel. I need to cut 12cm off the catch on the rear near where it the thumbscrew goes in.
The stock fan is a rather noisy thing so I'll probably switch it out with another one of my coolermaster 120mm's. I should of done this in the beginning to have a matching set but I was eager to get it up and running. That will be tomorrows task.

Water cooling leads to modding due to fitment. I have heard. I will be joining you with water cooling fore my next build. :)

Well I had a bit of a gurling sound and some temp spikes since installing it. Nothing major but I contacted coolit and they are going to send me a ECO II 120. Can't complain about that. I don't even have to send them back this one. Coolit has to be some of the best customer service I have ever encountered. I wasn't writing to them to RMA just to see what the issue may be. Many thumbs up to them.

They told me to stop using the one I have cause the pump is likely dying but I'll keep it in until the new one arrives and then move it to my wifes q8200.

It finally arrived today. Installed and working great. Fedex took forever to deliver, and contracted it out another company before I got it.

Installation went well, temps aren't much different than the original ECO though.
