mr-Charles . .

All my fans are CoolerMaster R4 120mm blue LED, it's the only fan I'll use.

The filters are either FilterRight, or a FilterRight knock-off, that I purchased from Xoxide.com for $3.75each + $6.70shipping for a total of $14.20. Whether they are the actual FilterRight brand or not doesn't really matter, that price was a steal for two 2-piece filters that are easily washable. You can get them in all sorts of colors, I chose black because they didn't have clear, and it actually turned out better than the clear ones.

If I were to take a better photo of the side-panel with the PC turned on, you will see that the top fan is crooked, and that the 4.5" holes to the left of center. It's not a huge deal, and it will work until I have a better window made the correct way.

I also plan on one day having this case painted/coated. A friend of a friend does cerakoting/etc on firearms, he did my XD-45 in digi-cam and it turned out great, so I may have him try to do that to this case.

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
forget to reply u. purple? i got the zalman cpu cooler, which is blue, combine with stock fan which is red, resulting a bit purple-ish color in my case, so i think purple kinda suit that. i thought of white, but it will show out some wire of my psu.

in my place (malaysia) dont have that noctua to be willing to spend of

Cerakote is nice stuff. Was your xD one of the older ones with the crappy finish that pitted? Even though it was new in the box I double-checked the production date on my before I bought it. But back on topic...the Scout would last forever with that coating. You'd wear yourself out changing components before you wore it out.

My old XD-40 had the pre-melanite coating that faded/pitted, Springfield Armory recoats them for free, all you pay for is shipping. All the other XDs I've owned over the last few years were the newer ones.

If you're in to the XD, check out xdtalk.com. I've been on there for quite a while.

...XD > glock.

So Striker left me with camera envy and I started playing around with my consumer Canon and took some new pics:







FYI: I have both NY and Utah permits.

Nice.

Oh...did you know that some jerk posted a public list of everyone in NY that holds a permit? I forgot the url, but it's been getting attacked left and right by certain people that don't like the website very much. In fact, I think someone put the url somewhere on 4chan for them to have some fun. Just some things I've heard.

Hey!! Guess what? That's what I happened to have been doing while you posted this.

I got some titanium blades for a different project last week, I'm using one of them and it cuts like soft plastic! Drilling sure would have been easier though.

Edit, @speedhunter. Yes, if you connected the R-4's up the same way the stock fans were connected then you may have turned the LED off with the switch on top of the case.

@ gwjpr. Striker is right, you can tell specifically because in one pic your sleeving looks red, in the other orange. Enigma is a wiz at making these pics pop though. Maybe he'll do yours!

@ Y'all, something I'd like to share. If you are going to replace TIM on anything you might want to buy a tube of IC Diamond. It's supposed to take 2 hours or up to a week to cure, but I've already got a difference and it's been running 20min. The auto fan control seems to try to keep the temp at 93c or below. In that condition I've got a 2c temp drop already. With the fan on full speed and the GPU is at 93% which is where it tests at, the temp is 7c cooler.
