That is nice but the one I'm thinking about fit behind the covers.

Here it is...

Looks like it slides right in to the case with no modding necessary, comes with a pre-installed 120mm blue LED fan, and has the foam/filter...for only $20+shipping, that's awesome!

Hey you mad modders!!

@ ACM, get better soon. I didn't even know you were having surgery.

@ GoodInk. Congrats on Scout build of the week!! You deserve it.

@ Anyone. Can someone please go here: http://digitalstormonline.com/complo....asp?id=415868

Look at the Products / Gaming Computers / Black Ops, then click on customize and please tell me what case they are using for the "Ironclad" and the "Malestrom". Nevermind the Malestrom, it is an Inwin Malestrom I can't place the Ironclad. They usually put thier own name to a case.

Ok. Nevermind again. It's an Inwin Ironclad. Guess they either lost thier creativity or they have to use the right name on some cases.

I see they stopped using the Scout and they have the HafX.

I see they stopped using the Scout and they have the HafX.
Thanks, the Malestrom is a In Win. It's kinda cheap from what I've seen reviewed on it, 3DGamerman did a review and I read a couple on it too.

Hello everyone,

I recently completed a Storm Scout build, and I have to say I love the case. Incredible quality and design for the price.

Looking through the pictures of everyone elses' builds made me question a choice I made during the build. I oriented my HSF north-south (vertically), but I notice the majority of people in this thread orient theirs east-west (horizontally). Is there a benefit to horizontal orientation?
My thinking was the larger fan at the top of the case would do a better job of pulling the warm exhaust out of the case. Also, with the HS fan located at the bottom, blowing to the top of the case, allows the fan to pull cool outside air through the slats in the side panel window.

Any thoughts on this?

I'm assuming you kept your oem ones because you said the top fan was larger. A lot of us replace those oem case fans with CM R4 120mm fans. May want to look in to doing this, really jumps up that airflow and reduces those temps. I have two R4s on front, one on top, two on rear(push/pull for my rad), two on side panel. I cut out the mesh for the top fan, front/lower fan and rear fan to further increase airflow. Side panel window was replaced and has two 4.5" holes cut and screw holes drilled for the fans, with filterright filters installed on the outside...the vents on the original window were a terrible idea. They are wider than the fans so they allow unfiltered air in, and the vents create an annoying airflow noise. Plus I wasn't too happy about it being tinted, I like to appreciate my work without feeling like I'm looking through sunglasses. My mods have resulted in a system so quiet, that I can actually hear my H50 pumping water over the sound of the fans if I listen hard enough.

With air cooling on the CPU, I don't think there'd be a huge difference between vertical and horizontal airflow due to how this case is set up. Horizontally, you'll be getting fresh air from the front of the case. Vertically, you'll be getting fresh air from the side panel fans. The only difference I'd imagine there being is...you may see a slight gain going horizontally, because vertical mounting may lead to your HSF fans pulling up heat from the GPU and PSU area. It may also rob your GPU of that much-needed side panel air.

Here is a quick shot of how my system is looking.

I made a temporary false floor from black poster paper. I'll end up making one from black styrene sheet, with a 100mm scythe slipstream in there, blowing air to my card. Might go back to crossfire 5770s (I miss my hawks..but I might go reference coolers for the looks, or paint the hawk fan shields)

I'll be getting new tubing for the H50 as moving it around is a pain in the ass, these tubes are so stiff.

Next will be either a led stick or two 4 inch white cathodes for some simple white light..I dont want funky colors.

Got my Scout
I need a new cooler, and I think I'm gonna go with the Venomous X. Anyone know whether the Ven X will fit nicely in the scout without having to sacrifice any fans and can the Ven X be mounted horizontally or vertically, I'm pretty sure I saw a few builds with the cooler horizontal?
