the HD 5870x2 is going to be 12 inches long or 30 centimeters which will mean that you'll have too bring out your dremel or cutting device of choice to get one of these monsters into you Storm scout

hehe yeh I know

but the 2x 275's on my shopping list should hold me up for a good while, and by that time I'll probably be wanting a new case.

Just being light hearted... I was in that just finishing work on a friday mood!

Well still... Cutting tool of choice = already owened = 0 $
1 new chassi = maybe 100$
And im in the long day after school mood
post #1096 of 28613
how would you mod the hard drive to accomodate the bigger cards in this chasis?

My Noctua fans are not loud but they dont put much cfm compared the R4s. They have about the same quietness to them.

It's official. I'm trading my Storm Scout to my friend for his Antec 900. I guess I won't technically be a member of the club any more and I see that this club is really kicking off so the help I provided before can easily be replicated. The trade will be done next weekend.

Here's what I liked/disliked about my Storm Scout case and why I found it superior to other cases in its price range:

Pros:
  • All black interior
  • Tool-less hard drive cage is much better than others I've worked with
  • Has an extra button on the front I/O that can be used for things other than its original purpose
  • NEARLY perfect holes for cable management
  • Steel reinforced handle. I've only moved my computer twice but it came in handy
  • Dust filter for the PSU
  • Gunmetal screws that it came with
  • Extra deep 5.25" drive bay cage so the optical drive/s aren't exposed
  • The use of 140mm fans instead of 120mm ones
  • Large power button

Cons:
  • The dust filters don't work well
  • Side panel vibrates too much with fan/s on it. I'm thinking the plastic removable rivets don't stabilize the window enough
  • The top fan has metal perforated steel blocking airflow AND plastic blocking airflow
  • Could've provided mounting hardware for an additional 140/120mm fan in the front
  • Stock fans are weak
  • Could've had firewire on the front I/O
  • Should've had a hole for the 24 pin connector
  • Could've had a little more space so closing the right side would be easy with bulging wires
  • Should've had a hole for the 4/8 pin connector. Running it through the CPU retention bracket hole was inconvenient for me as I also needed to remove a fan to get the wire into place.

Despite all of the cons, this was by far the best mid tower case I've owned and was well worth the price...though I must also recommend the Cooler Master Gladiator 600. They were 80 bucks when they first came out and it didn't seem like it was worth it to buy them when the Storm Scout was 100 bucks and was the exact same case with the addition of a handle and black interior but now the Gladiator 600 is only 50-65 and it seems like an amazing deal.

Also, I'm going to make a false floor and a 120mm front fan mounting bracket for my friend. So I'll post pics of that when it's done. I'll most likely do it this weekend.

I, personally, would derivet the entire hard drive cage assuming the graphics card is in line with it on your motherboard then just buy mounting hardware for hard drives in the 5.25" drive bays.

This is with the single stock fan mounted at the front of the case, I suspect lower temps can be had with 2 decent push/pull fans.

Edit: Mohunky, do you know anywhere that sells R4's here in the UK?
Been trying to find some but it's looking like they would need to be ordered from the states, yay for shipping taxes
33c @ idle on both cores is the lowest I could possibly get it in the new case with the GeminiII 2 x 120mm and Zalman compound. 34c @ idle was the lowest with old artic compound, old/small thermaltake cooler in a thermaltake case that was dusty and had only a few 80/90mm fans. As you can see my idle temps are a bit high and didn't drop much at all with the upgraded cooling/airflow...wish I knew why. Under load the new setup shows its colors, the temps don't raise near as much as they used to.

Hmm.. sad too hear bout' you leaving the scout but good luck with your 900... note that the top fan does not withstand blows from top... my friend noticed that
