Ive just got a few questions about this case. ive read every page of it here,but i havent found anything about it.

1 Is it easy to remove the HDD case so i can fit a 5870 card in there?

2 What cpu cooler should i get? CM v8 or the Mugen 2?


Hardware i have ordered is
Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5
Corsair Dominator DHX+ DDR3 1600MHz 4GB Kit
Corsair Powersupply HX 750W Modular
Intel Coreâ„¢ i7 Quad Processor i7-860 2,80GHz, Socket LGA1156, 8MB,
MSI P55-GD65, P55, Socket-1156


I realy would like this case. Its an amaizing case with great looks and cable management but it sucks that a 5870 wont fit without having to do some mods

As far as I've seen the HDDcage is only there with some bolts that shouldn't be that hard too remove otherwise just use a cutting tool and cut it out

Nice ^^ first i tought of maybe cutting away 1-2 hdd slots... but since im gonna have just 1 hdd i maybe will remove it and put it in a 3,5 - to 5 adapter and use 1 of the 5 inch drive bays, but that ****s up my plan of having a big as possible fan up there

I've mounted a 140mm fan to the front of the 3.5-5.25 convertor and I'm pretty sure theres still room for the HDD in there.

Yup me too. I have a 120 in the bottom temporarily until I can get another 140. But it has made a big difference in system cooling.

Have to get some photo's up when you've got it built, think there will be a lot of people interested in seeing that board fit in a scout.
