[Complete] Red Alert SR1 - Chopped CM Storm Scout with 360 top radiator

RedAlertBannerRedo.jpg

Whats with the name? The name was chosen as a tribute to my two most influential games. The first one is Command & Conquer: Red Alert on PC (yes the 90's version). It was the first PC game I remember enjoying and it had a big impact on me. I would play the game all day when I was 7 or 8 on my Gateway desktop. The thing probly only had 128mb of RAM and dial up tongue.gif. The second game is Mass Effect on X360, this is where the SR1 came from (the name of Shepard's ship is the Normandy SR1). I love this game due to the great story, the immersive environment, and the many different paths that one can take.

Current Status:

Alright folks, this mod is effectively on hold for at least a very long time. Lugging this 75 pound beast back and forth between college and home was becoming too big of a hassle. I love this computer very much as it was my first mod, but I have sold all of the components except one of the 6950s, and will be moving the an itx platform now, as well as intel I plan to make a much more professional worklog with better pictures etc. for the next round. Thanks to all those who followed, I really appreciate the support, hopefully my next mod will be bigger (smaller?) and better than ever! thumb.gif


Hey everyone!

I am a new member here. I have been looking at these forums for a while but just recently decided to join, here is my first major contribution! I have had my Cooler Master Storm Scout for a about 6 months now, and I love it! I had already done some modding to it, such as moving the hard drive cage over to accomodate the beasty 6950. I have also recently become interested in doing a full custom watercooling setup in my rig. One problem: I dont think a few 120.1 radiators are gonna work to cool my 955 and that 6950! Sooo, with the help of my brother, my dad's tool collection, and some dumb luck, I will attempt to mod the Scout in order to accomodate a 360mm radiator. Suggestions are welcome, this is my first mod project. biggrin.gif I know my hardware may not be the epitome of performance, but cut me a break; im a 20 year old college student wink.gif. For the specs of my rig, you can check out my sig. In advance, I apologize for the subpar picture quality, they have so far been taken with my droid incredible and my not so steady hand. In the words of Captain Tenneal of MXC "Geeeet it on!" wheee.gif
Hmmm...will they fit? We shall see!

The disassembly is complete, dremeltime! thumb.gif

Keep it up! I am also a super broke 20 year-old college student. Modding without money or they proper tools makes it 10x more frustrating but the pay off is awesome when you can say "I made that". I find old old computer case and practice panting, cutting, ect. I still haven't quite got the courage to remove pop rivets yet lol. I dont have the money to fix what i break or buy new. YOUTUBE IS YOUR FRIEND lol. Watch other people mess it up so you dont.

Thanks for the advice mate! Thankfully I have most of the proper tools and I am not totally broke, so I have something to work with. As for the pop rivets, just get a sharp, 1/8th drill bit and they come out perfect! I learned that from youtube and used it on my hard drive cage! Hopefully i dont mess up too bad on anything Go for the rivets man

Just to think outside the box a little, you COULD get away with a 240mm rad up top and a 120mm rad where your H50 is now, or even just keep the H50 and mod it to work in your loop. That would be awesome. The 240mm up top should be able to handle your rig alone though. Just some thoughts, in case the 360mm doesn't fit or you decide it will become too messy and a 240mm would be cleaner. You could probably easily get a 280mm (2x140mm) rad up top too

Oh I see, yes that would make things more difficult! I think they are pretty cheap, I just had one laying around, looked to be from the cold war era

What do you mean keep the H50 and mod it to work in the loop? These are interesting ideas, I wanna make sure it can handle two 6950s if I ever get a chance to crossfire them. Do you think a 280 would be enough for that? Thanks for the suggestions!

People have modded their H50's to include an external reservior for it, keeping the temps down with more liquid. I hypothesize that you could incorporate the H50 into a custom loop.
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...s-res-mod.html

Ext. Pump > 240mm/280mm > H50 CPU (pump then through H50 rad) > GPU/'s > Ext. Pump

or maybe:

Ext. Pump > 240mm/280mm > GPU/'s > H50 CPU (pump then through H50 rad) > Ext. Pump

Would be a wickedly cool mod if you could pull it off.

I'm sure that such a loop could handle crossfire 6950's and PhII 955.

This sounds like a hell of a project! Also, with the H50 and external pump in the same loop, wouldnt that cause problems with the different flow rates of the pumps? Another problem is that I already ordered the 360 shroud that I need... lol

Since there is not room for the fans AND the radiator at the top of the scout, I will be using the Koolance SHR-1020BK 3x120mm shroud to accomodate the fans. The angled sides of the shroud are just plastic that can she unscrewed, so after those are removed, it will just pretty much be a box. I will have to do some extra cutting to get it fitted onto the top of the scout. The mounting will be under the plastic top of the scout so it shouldnt show. at all.

The shroud


The before we get to this however, I will have to mod the top plastic parts, there are 2 separate parts. Here is what I have done so far:



Here is the piece of plastic that is in the center, we will need to cut out the center of this. Here is the beginning of the cut.



Here is the middle part that wont be needed:



Here are the two side pieces that need to be kept, they will go on either side of the shroud:



Here you can see which part of the plastic was cut. Here is what it looks like with just the sides inserted:


The next step will be to cut the other plastic piece so that we can actually get the shroud in there. Pretty good update id say! Feel free to throw out your suggestions or opinions! Happy modding!
