[Build Log] CM Storm Scout 2 - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Thread Starter 
Thanks guys! smile.gif
Im very tempted to paint the GPU backplate white along with the Hdd bay and the PSU cover. All Im waiting on is my white cable sleeving still (its coming from Hong Kong so it should be here next millenia)
I also overclocked my i5 2500k to 4.5GHz and just finished a 15 hour stress test biggrin.gif Very happy with the results, temps are normal thanks to that monster H100i

Heres some extra pictures I took a few days ago smile.gif

Do you have any fans on your side panel?

No fans on the side panel just yet because I have spent all the money I could on this build so far. Going to save up and get the same make of fans all around the case tho. smile.gif

I should have my cable sleeving this week but I'll be very busy and wont have any time to start it!
After a heavy amount of editing in the past two days Im very happy of what power I'm getting from this biggrin.gif
More big (ish) updates later on in the week hopefully!

out of curiosity i know you said that the backplate clears all the GPU components but have you put anything in between it and the card? other than the standoffs of course... if not i would suggest maybe thermal tape or soemthing along those lines. if for some random chance the plate gets compressed it wont touch any of the components ever. just a suggestion awesome plate though what kind of temps do you have on your vga card with it? thumb.gif

I get max temps of 58° however I am planning on bringing the backplate to my parents house later on in the week and cutting out some ventilation because it is pretty warm when its at 100% load
I was thinking about getting them and some nice screws to make it pop but I cant even spend another euro on this build until the summer frown.gif

Sorry for the bad photo but here's what it looks like currently smile.gif



I'm going to change all the covers around the psu, hdd bay and the gpu backplate to white to match the white sleeving I will be getting this week smile.gif

I got bored so I sanded down the paint on the covers and threw the first coat of white smile.gif
I sanded it down a little to smooth the paint out and when I have some spare time later on in the week ill throw the last few coats on



The covers are just left in because I didn't bother to disconnect all the cables on the mobo so it will look a lot better when its finished smile.gif

white sleeving is good i recommend Lutro0 customs thats where i got my sleeving from as well as the tools to do the work . my build log is in my sig.. i noticed with a good camera you can see the colored wires from underneath the paracord sleeving.. its strange as its white when your looking at it but the moment a photo is taken it gets all crummy looking smile.gif

also yea vents would help your temps as well as some thermal tape on the hotter parts i think they are called V-rams or soemthing like that.. i would have to find the diagram i found explaining crucial components to cover.. The white looks amazing btw! smile.gif
