you can probably see h100i and h220 configs in the stormscout cases within previous pictures in this threads gallery. but most likely, you will have to either mod or deal with the external mounting option.

as getting a 660ti in feb, i should have waited a little longer, and would have saved enough for a 780. I suggest you do what I should have done smile.gif go with the single gpu. i feel that sli configurations are for ppl that plan on getting the 2nd gpu later on, not 2 gpu's right away. otherwise it just seems like your going for aesthetics.

thats my 2 cents

you should put something in between both rads in the back, like a carbon cover. shaped like this [ so it covers the whole middle section but allows air to flow through the inside. post back if you do it, or something

Hy guys.
Time to show what I've done recently with my Scout. I haven't done major mods, but I've changed most of the hardware parts inside.

So, what I have here is a Gigabyte GA-Ep45T-UD3P and a E8400 E0 cooled by a Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. B and the fan that came with True spirit 120.




I replaced the old ECS GT240 with a Saphire HD5770 Vapor X, and added 16 GB of RAM, Kingston HyperX Genesis.




For storage I have 2xWD Caviar Blue AAKX 500GB RAID 0 and a 1TB Hitachi.




I made some changes to the front panel as you can see in the below images. I cut that plastic gril that seemed to me useless I it probably afected the air flow. I also added a 12cm fan in the 5,25" bay.
The stock fans are a bit noisy so I'm planning to replace them.

On the back of the mainboard it's a chaos, I've spend a lot of time trying to arrange the cables and this is the best that I can do. So any sugestions of how to improve wire management will be welcomed.
And also, sorry for my bad English.

I want to light up the inside of my storm scout 2, do you guys think it would be easier to just use LED fans or buy separate led strips/cold cathodes?

Yeah, strips are the way to go. More light, less money. Check Ebay, they have strips with adhesive for dirt cheap. I got the red 10" strip in my case for $4 shipped.

I built a theme build for a customer and I used REMOTE LIGHTING like this.. its great because you get all the colors you want and many other features including turning them off.
