I have a similar build in my Scout case which I use as a media PC.

My only beef about the case (other than anemic stock fans which I switched out) is that once I installed the H70, I could only put one fan in the door.



Otherwise I am pleased with the case.

Have had a couple issues with this build:

1. The H60 infamous grinding noise issue. Figured out this is air trapped so I flicked my pump unit and it went away for a couple days. Came back today to my anger but then just now it decided to go away. I have it setup in push pull atm and getting great temps. EDIT: Now it came back >.<<br />

Here the reason

Weird, I was able to fit two fans on the door with my H60...but looking at that radiator block it's huge o,0.

Grinding noise keeps coming and going, though I'm getting used to it so it's w/e now. I might try mounting the radiator on the top port as I've heard putting the radiator above the pump will stop the noise.

Prolly gonna buy a fan controller too so I can control the pump speed and the speed of the side fans.

UPDATE: Doing an RMA on my H60, the grinding noise is driving me crazy! Got a new one coming and going to send the defective one back when I get that one.

I spent a little bit of money on some aesthetic improvements. Going to be doing some sleaving to improve the looks of the inside. Also decided to nerd it up and get a white led strip to put around the scout door for a nice white red black theme:

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sleeved-Light-White-Meter-CB-LED20-WT/dp/B0046Y5Z92/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1315356994&sr=8-10"]Amazon.com: NZXT Sleeved LED Case Light Kit (White) 2 Meter CB-LED20-WT: Electronics[/ame]


Also, got a Sentry 2 fan controller to control the side fans I got (didn't feel like under-volt modding them to stop them from running at 100%):

11%2B-%2B1

Waiting on the sleeving and the white LED strip, will post more pics afterwords.

Still haven't figured out how to wire up the scout's LED controller, but I'll probably get it working when I get some more zip-ties and redo the cable management on the side. Kind of wishing I had gotten a full tower now to have more room to do all this smile.gif.

Also might do a false floor mod to cover up my PSU. Leaning towards doing this with wood as it is easier to work with than sheet metal. Gotta figure out how to stick this in the case though, and gotta worry about the front HD plugin to the sound card. Also want to cover up the HDD tray. Might do that this weekend smile.gif, need some tips though.

Just got done re-doing all my wiring, it didn't help much beyond making it even more difficult getting the back side on tongue.gif. But the cable extensions I got do look really good so it was worth it.

The 2m LED strip was kind of a pain to get to look just right, but the final product is very cool. I wish it had more glow coming from the top, but I CBA to fix it. I also got my LED controller working, but it seems the red glow from the stock fans is pretty weak. I kinda want more red light.

I also finished my false floor and HDD cover as well. I ended up using plywood and spray painted it false black. The wood on top of the PSU could have been wider, I guess I measured it slightly wrong. I still think it looks great though. I'll probably not use electrical tape on the outside to make sure it is attached to the PSU, but I still think it looks ok. The HDD cover actually turned out really well, it fit in just perfectly and I didn't even need to tape it to the frame it was just so snug. I might redo it with sheet metal, but for now I am proud of it smile.gif.

So on to the pictures (took with my tablet, really should get a camera >.<):
