I know there are other boards out there that will fit the 5870 and the 8970 though I can't say for sure other than I know mine will allow it, the MSI 70FX-GD70. But that's with AMD. I feel the pain of not being being able to fit monster cards into this great little case. That's why I'm going to with something bigger when I build my next machine unless Cooler Master makes a revised Scout with bigger innards (ahem....Cooler Master????) If I had to make a recommendation of a case in similar price range that indeed had all the feature that would make the Scout a truly near perfect case it would be the Lian-Li Lancool PC-K62. I'm not trying to drive off of getting a Scout, but it is limited to what it can do. If you're into modding then you can make anything fit.

EDIT: After reviewing the screw locations in the middle of the that ASUS board the top PCIe slot aligns up with those screw locations as does the MSI board referred to so I'd say yes it'll work, but I can't guarantee it.

the air flow in this case with the side fans is stellar so i wouldn't be too worried about it if you got one or 2 more
currently the most powerfull fan i have in my place is the sickelflow, will it be enough? but i read that sleve bearing is not suitable for horizontal position. if it is enough, i will buy 2 of them to put on the side.

what color would make my case stand out if i wanna put ccfl in it?

i personally would put it on the side first and get a Noctua 140mm fan for the top if you willing to spend a little and it doesn't even need to be super powerful just needs to get the stagnant air created by the video card to move

and for the light
GO PURPLE!... but that's cus i haven't seen a true purple scout

i think green or red look killer. and blue (though i think its rather played out) looks pretty good in this thing in moderation

Striker here comes some tips from a fellow D3000-user.

When shooting the your PC use the Manual settings, set the Aperture too f/8.0 and the Shutter too 3 Seconds, set the ISO too 100 and place the camera on a soft surface let's say a pillow, a tripod is sooooooo much easier too use when you want some odd angels.

Nils @ MDPC-x has a good little guide for shooting computers. I've liniked it before but here it is again


Also, if you have photoshop shoot in RAW and get the plugin Adobe Camera Raw and edit the RAW files in that for the absolute best result.

You said your side panel is heating up, are you reffering to the solid side panel that covers the back of the mobo tray ? The right side panel ? If thats the case then something must be pretty wrong.

If its the windowed side panel then if you can, do as Striker said(intake fans on side panel and stronger exhaust fan/s).

Also how is your wire management, is there lots of cable hanging around in the case ? This could impede air flow and lead to rising temps.

You say it happens whilst gaming, just for ****s and giggles, does it happen when the cpu alone is under load or is it when the gpu is under load ?

If you take off the side panel/s does it get better and can you feel where the heat is coming from ?

ok, let me try to sort it out. the gpu got 2 exhaust, 1 on the backplate, the other one on the end side inside the case (there is a hole there, most hd5850 reference cooler are like this). so the backplate just blow straight to the back of the case while the side blow 45 degree to the back, which hit the window side panel (the steel, not the clear/perspex one), which in the end of the day will heat up the side panel.

i know this direction when manually set the fan to 50% with the side panel detach, feel it with my hand. its only happen when the gpu is under load, the cpu got no problem thx to the cpu cooler.

i got quite clean cable management, so the cable wont block the air flow.

yes, it will be better without the side panel, but i prefer the side panel is in its place.

thx

than the fan solution should be just about perfect for you. infact you may even be able to get away with one fan pointing at the card
