I have a question regarding the PSU dust filter..

While i was installing my GTX260, i decided to have a clean up, and removed the PSU dust filter, but couldnt get it back on, so now my PSU is face down, with no dust filter in place..

Is there any way to get a hold of a replacement dust filter, or will i be ok without one?


PS... I have also put a 120mm Enermax Apollish Red Case Fan on my side window.. they are really good fans, but i have noticed a sharp increase of dust accumulating on the side of my GPU.. Are there any dust filters that can fit on the side window?

thanks in advance

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.
hehehe thats interesting, the antec 900 was the other case I was considering before I bought my scout

You should tell your friend to be part of the thread here and you should still lurk around too

I second that Chick. You have been a priceless part of this organization and you going to the Freakin Dark Side and using an Antec 900 Case. Awww.. What pain. what pain.. ooohhh... The good thing is the 900 can also be used for a great dust collector. It will clean the air in your room and cool your parts. Just remember to dust the front of the case once a week. and turn up the A/C just one more degree because all that heat has to go somewhere and it goes right up to the top of your room.

Also be advised that closing the door to a room with an Antec 900 can also cause dizziness and sleepiness.

Enigma.
I just hate that you not gonna be part of the group anymore.

My friend's a graduate student and is REALLY busy nowadays so I doubt he'll devote time. I'll still help out occasionally.

Oh, and just a reminder - I'm not trading my Scout because I think the Antec 900 is better because I know it's not. I've gained a strong interest in modding and want to become more experienced. It's hard to mod the Storm Scout because it's so close to perfect.

You're taking this waaay too seriously.
1. It's just a case.
2. My Storm Scout dust filters are terrible.
3. It's not like I'm leaving my new Antec 900 stock.
4. I'll have good dust filters.
5. According to your sig rig you're not even using one. I don't see how this is any different.

So, the 5800 cards won't fit... How should I go about modding the case, or do I have to buy a new one? Because if I DO have to, that may be the difference with me getting the 5870 instead of the 5870x2 :/.

The 5850's will fit fine. This case is great and the 5850's are nearly just as good as the 5870's.

Hehe, I'll forgive you..."It's hard to mod the Storm Scout because it's so close to perfect."...you couldn't have said it better.

But meh K10, you've done a lot for this thread and all the other Scout owners out there. I hope the 900 will serve you as well as the Scout did

Thanks, I'm sure it won't but I'm fine with that. A case is just a case. It's not THAT important. I just like modding .
